MOTIVATION ACTION PLAN: Feeling unmotivated?

MOTIVATION ACTION PLAN: Feeling unmotivated?

December 10, 2019 2 Comments

Meet the gorgeous fitness fanatic, Sarah Butcher. She's here to chat with us about motivation.

Have you found yourself constantly procrastinating, pressing snooze or feel yourself just being lazy?

Then stop reading, I can’t help you.

Jokes 😂 but seriously I can put in my two cents worth now that can help you but at the end of this post it’s up to you to activate the advice/suggestions I’ve made.

If you’re feeling unmotivated, lazy or always finding excuses... the truth is you just don’t care enough. 🤷‍♀️

When you know exactly what you want and it is honestly IMPORTANT to you... the motivation comes easy. You won’t make excuses and you’ll find ways to make it happen.

We become lazy and unmotivated when it comes to things we don’t want to do. You need to visualise and CONNECT with your goals.

Write them down, put them as your phone or laptop background and review these goals first thing in the morning and throughout the day.

That way you stay CONNECTED to your goals and be reminded of them constantly.

Regardless of how tired you are, how your day has been or how yuck the weather is - you won’t want to let a day slip away without getting closer to your goals!

Once you get connected to your goals you will actually think about the decisions you make.
For example;

  • the foods you put in your body
  • the time you go to bed
  • how much you focus on your recovery
  • the quality and intensity of your training

So next time you feel like sleeping in… review your goals. When you feel like skipping a training session… Review your goals. When you feel like laying on the couch, wasting the day, and eating junk…Review your goals- and get off your butt and do something towards them 😄

Now that’s not to say that you can’t ever miss a day of training, sleep in or can’t allow for “off days”. Just don’t let those times snowball into a negative spiral that stops you from getting back on track. 💪


  1. Create your list of goals
  2. Make it the background and screensaver on your phone.
  3. Review it first thing in the morning and last thing at night- or when you need to
  4. Don’t just review but CONNECT and remember why it’s important to you!

You can use this action plan for other important areas of your life too such as health and relationships.

Ladies, the weather is heating up which means bikini season is just around the corner! There’s already temptations of replacing gym sessions with beach walks. However, giving up resistance training could cause more damage than you think!

Why resistance train?

Resistance training is crucial to maintaining a proper fitness routine. Your muscles will waste away without it. Once you’ve hit your twenties, muscle loss increases rapidly unless you work to maintain or build it. if you don’t use it, you lose it.

Only a few weeks off resistance training can cause muscle loss (if you’ve ever broken a bone you would already know this!).

Being a personal trainer I’m in the gym all day most days so my energy output is pretty high compared to most. My long term goal at the moment is to compete at IFBB in the bikini division in October next year, so at the moment, being in off season my trainings all about GROWTH. Building up my glutes, hamstrings, upper back and shoulders to create the X shape that the judges look for on the day. I ride my bike the 15 minutes to and from Surry hills everyday to get my body moving before my first client, I also don’t like public transport much and who wouldn’t want to be able to eat a bit more due to the extra output! I also do my strength training 5 days a week which consists of 3 leg focused days and 2 upper body days. My gym, Fitness Playground also offers Pilates and yoga so I try and get in to one of those a week to ground me a bit.
