How Taran Stays Motivated
Over one-and-a-half years later, and Taran says she still has days where her "motivation is at a -9000," and she'll search for any and every excuse in the book to not work out or plan her meals. She realized this was normal, but having discipline was key.
"Remembering your 'why,' recalling all your nonscale victories, pushing and showing up during those days where you just can't muster the motivation – that's when it counts. Those moments are where you start fighting to get out of your comfort zone," Taran said. "Your comfort zone is how you got to this place that you cannot stand to be anymore – so why would you want to stay there?"
Taran said having a plan for her nutrition and your exercise was essential, and holding herself accountable. Having friends and family to push her along her journey was amazing. "I even have a small group of ladies from all over the world in a group chat, and we try to help each other daily," Taran said. "but only you are accountable for your actions and those actions are the only things that will bring you results."
