Workout Chat: How to Guarantee You Get Your Workout Done
If you want to be consistent in getting something done, you’ve got to put it on your schedule… even your workouts. You must be specific, too. Here’s a few tips to help you make sure you get your workout done every day inspired by a recent experience I had.
#1 – Schedule your workouts – exactly what you’re going to do every day for the next 5 days.
#2 – Schedule the time at which your workouts will begin
#3 – Set an alarm and don’t hit snooze – your workouts are most likely to happen when you schedule them at a time when no one else needs you…that’s early morning.
I recently noticed that I wasn’t scheduling my workouts… and by that I mean, I wasn’t setting an exact start time in my calendar. This was a mistake because it gave me way too much flexibility. Even though I was getting up with my alarm and heading down to gym once I was ready, I wasn’t actually scheduling a time. The result? My workouts were getting pushed farther and farther back… which meant my workouts were getting shorter and shorter. I was feeling rushed and like I wasn’t able to get through what I wanted to get through.
So this week, I decided to make a change. My wake up is set, along with a second alarm to indicate my workout time.
Food stylists beware. Look away! This isn’t pretty, but it tastes fantastic…and it’s easy…. I didn’t even use a knife!
– Ground beef
– Unsweetened almond milk yogurt
– Seasoning of your choice
This isn’t meant to be a recipe; merely an inspiration for a new way to get more probiotic rich foods in your diet.

If no one’s told you this lately… you look so good when you smile. You should smile more. And yes, you do have a lot to be happy about and grateful for.
If you’re struggling to come up with the things you’re grateful for, take out a pen and piece of paper and jot down a few things that if you didn’t have them right now, you’d be devastated. Those are the things to be grateful for.
I get so many messages from people on Snapchat who say “Chalene, you’ve got to give me motivation. I don’t feel like working on my business. I don’t feel like working on my marriage. I don’t feel like working out. I don’t feel like eating right, etc. You have to give me motivation.”
I hate to break it to you…I can’t give that to you, and no one else can either.
Here’s what can be motivational: a song, a movie, following someone on social media… these can all be motivational drives in your life. But no one can GIVE you motivation. So if you’re waiting for someone to give it to you or to just magically find it, you’re looking in the wrong places.
If you want a certain result, you need to take a certain action.
I am not motivated to brush my teeth, but I want clean teeth, and I don’t want to repel people with my bad breath, so I take the action of brushing my teeth. If you want a certain outcome, think about what actions are required and just DO them.
If you’re not happy with your weight, your finances, your business, your relationships…
You know what excuses you’re making. You know what to do. Stop waiting around for the motivation or searching for it or hoping someone else will give it to you.
The question is “Do you want it or not?” Because you know what to do, so you either go for it, or don’t.
This video is just another testament to why you need to workout…not just for weight loss, but for your health…especially your brain. There are so many chemical processes that happen in the brain when we exercise. We used to think the positive benefit of exercise for the brain was endorphins (what we feel when we feel excitement). What’s even more exciting than endorphins is the BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotropic Factor) in our brain.
When people talk about clarity after they exercise it’s because BDNF literally resets your brain. When we exercise, we produce human growth hormone at a much higher rate than when we’re sedentary. HGH is responsible for: repairing tissues, making new hair and nails, repairing cells, and improving mitochondrial function… So if you want to live longer, feel happier, feel younger, heal faster…you definitely want more HGH.
And you don’t have to get injected with it or pay for it. Your body produces it when you exercise. That’s pretty freaking awesome, RIGHT!?
So the bad news is, when you stop working out, the chemical processes that happen in your brain stop…check out this video to find out why you should never stop cold turkey and no matter what your situation, you should always find SOMETHING you can do to stay active.
