Default What keeps you motivated?

Keeping up the habit of working out every day is tough for most of us. What are some ways you keep yourself motivated to hit the gym on your off-days?

Knowing the end product that I am shooting for keeps me motivated.

Knowing that I will be healthier than most at age 40, 50, 60 and up. And that I will probably live longer than most too.

I think having a workout partner keeps me motivated. I have no excuse not to go to failure cuz i have someone spotting me. Also we tend to try to out-do each other on our lifts so theres the competitive motivation.

Christ to shield me today

Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
