How do I stay motivated on my wellness and fitness journey?
Well this question is a mouth full and it deserves it’s own blog post. It’s your lucky day because I have a few blog post on this topic. Click the link below for more.
However, most people are not motivated 365 days in the year.
I use to get stressed about not feeling motivated about my workouts. Honestly I am human and there is no way on earth I will always be motivated to workout, and that’s ok.
Motivation isn’t the only key ingredient to a succesful fitness journey. The days that you lack motivation to workout and eat healthy, because you may have had a long day at work, your muscles are sore from your previous workout, your kids are out of control, you feel like you have no control over your life, basically, wherever that feeling of unmotivation may come from, remember that there is something called discipline. So no you do not always have to be motivated, sometimes you just have to have discipline.
Where are you from?
I am Jamaican. You can also find a short blurb about where I’m from in my bio on my blog Lifestylebymarshalee. I was born in Montegobay, in Saint James hospital and raised in Westmoreland. Then I migrated to United States of America, to be precise New York City, at the age of nine.
What do you do for a living?
I am a Clinical Research Supervisor. I’ve worked in several areas in clinical research, like cardiology and dermatology. Currently I work in cancer research, Lung cancer.
Where did you meet your husband?
This question may be the most asked question. My husband and I met at church in NYC, during the Christmas season over 6 years ago.
Should I take a shower before or after the gym or both?
At first I thought this was a joke. After thinking about it, I realized it was a great question. My answer is it depends. If my workout is early in the morning (6am), I shower after I workout. If my workout is at night, then I would have showered earlier in the morning and I would also shower again after my workout.
What color are your eyes?
My natural eye color is brown. However, I wear green contact lens and I would be blind without them. I am not a fan of wearing glasses because they always fall down my face.
