Since I started weight training when I was 12 years old I always had goals. In my earlier years it was for sports, in college it was to be lean, and young adulthood I got into bodybuilding so it was a combination of muscle size, strength, and conditioning. This made working out fun, exciting and challenging. However, since I stopped bodybuilding a year ago and started paleo I find myself bored and unmotivated in the gym. I am currently happy with my body fat level, strength and muscularity. In fact I just want to maintain and be healthy. But thats the problem....that's not much of a goal..lol. FYI....I quit bodybuilding for health reason but I have recovered with paleo.
I have started BJJ, but probably don't plan to ever compete, and I plan to do the tough mudder in October, so I guess I could train for that??? I've also gone to movnat seminars and taken crossfit classes to introduce new things, but I am still just lost without a specific goal. How do you guys motivate yourself without a specific goal?
