Any tips on working out before work and healthy eating/weight loss. I switched from OTF after work and got a peloton but have found I am not nearly as motivated. I thought I could work out on my lunch since I am WFH but it’s just not happening and then I’m tired after work plus CPA. My nutrition has also gone out the window so I really need any tips I can get as I just am not feeling good.

What motivates you most to exercise? For me it was weight loss and returning to my 20-something physique that the last few years have been unkind to. I found a picture that, every time I look at it, immediately makes me remember why I want to do the early morning workout...and I put that as my phone background. When my alarm goes off in the morning I'm forced to see it and get a boost of inspiration. Something like that can be adapted for other motivations as well. But getting that inspiration first thing when my eyes and body were fighting the early morning wake up call really helped and then eventually it became more habitual.

This is a really good idea! I am going to try it

I switched from OTF to my peloton when the pandemic first started and stuck to the hardcore on the floor monthly plans on their FB. That kept me motivated but not enough to keep the pounds off. I have since rejoined OTF and feel much more in shape.

Interesting. When u did hardcore did you also run or ride or just the calendar. I’ve been doing both and it a lot but I feel great. There is a new otf opening up a couple of blocks away but I can’t bring myself to pay that or go inside.

I have always been an early workout person, it is not easy to switch but if you do the most important thing is to get enough sleep so you feel ready to get up once your alarm goes off.

What is OTF?

Orange Theory Fitness

What do you think made you feel more motivated at OTF? If accountability of signing up for a class/financial penalty for no-showing, could you try booking an appointment for yourself on your calendar to do your pelo workouts? Maybe even charge yourself a penalty for no-shows like OTF.
