How to stay motivated when injured?!
-Don't think about what you can't do but about what you can do!
I can walk hands-free thanks to the iWalk-free. I can carry things and can lift weights.
-Be humbled by the limitations an injury can create.
So when you are injury-free you have more respect and admiration for your body!
-Figure out how to improve on your weaknesses!
You know you never want to take time to improve on your weaknesses because it's so difficult to do, but in the end you'll come out stronger.
-Stay relaxed and take one day at a time.
Don't look too far in the future about how long it takes to recover, think about each day as a small step of progress towards your end goal!
What you are used to doing you can always go back to after. Be excited to try something new, something your normal schedule has prevented you from doing. You need to accept change in order to grow.
-Surround yourself by inspiring people.
Look around for other motivated individuals their motivation can rub off on you.
The donut may taste good now but later it's going to make you feel crappy. Immediate satisfaction will not last, healthy foods make you feel better in the long run, trust me its worth it. You like a challenge.... embrace the challenge to fuel your body with healthy foods. Diets are always a challenge and tend to never last... make this change a lifestyle adjustment. Healthy foods also help repair the insides, help aid in the healing process and reduce inflammation.
-Plan a Comeback!
Create a recovery schedule and post recovery training plan to keep you focused. Make sure the plan is not too aggressive, you don't want to prolong the comeback. Be patience, but excited to return to normal activity. Schedule an event that you will be healthy for and set some personal goals for it.
Nothing wrong with buying a new workout item to keep you smiling!
