10 Facts to help you keep working out!
« on: April 30, 2015, 09:31:36 PM »
I originally wrote and posted this in the
Losing Fat section of the forum but I
thought I'd post it here too, as it did
good there I figured it might help a few
people out here too.
I thought this would be good to write
out, and hopefully contribute to if you
can think of others.
Everyone, at some point or another,
loses motivations or lacks it, let's
reminds ourselves anything is
achieveable.
1. Why? The one-worded question
where all of this began. Whenever you
lose focus or motivation, always bring
yourself back to the very first time you
asked this. Whatever reason you have,
is great enough for you to keep going.
Don't forget that.
2. You feel you're setting yourself up
for failure. You're wrong. You've tried
multiple diets which have had short
term effects, but in the long run you've
only ended up back at square one. This
time is different, tell yourself that. Let
your past mistakes be nothing but
learning guidelines, everytime you try
something different you're finding out
something new about yourself, don't be
put off from previous failure - welcome
it then destroy it.
3. Stop focusing so much on the
negatives. Bring out the positives and
be proud of every achievement made,
whether it be big or small the fact of
the matter is everything you do affects
your goal, so staying awake from the
cheesecake, or dragging yourself to go
for a run - it all pays off in the end.
4. There's going to be times when you
feel progress is going nowhere, that
you're eating foods you hate and
exercising for long periods of time; and
for what? I'm sure this question has
ran through many peoples' minds,
whether its because they're diet is off
or they're stuck at a plateau, it doesn't
matter - don't give up! Just because
your hitting a hard point doesn't mean
you can't soar through it, sit back,
evaluate, change. It might take
someone 3 months to achieve they're
ideal body whilst it might take someone
else 3 years. If it's in your heart then
it's worth it.
5. Compare yourself against yourself,
and no one else. You're not working
with their body, you're working on
yours, whilst it's good to have an idea
of how you want to look, don't go
competing with the fitness instructor at
your gym. Compete against the person
in the mirror because that's what
important.
6. Understand. This isn't going to be
easy, infact by far frustrating but
believe in yourself and you will go far.
Set goals that are realistic, not
ridiculous. Patience is a virtue, and no
matter how many days you wake up
feeling sluggish I can bet if you drag
your ass to go for a run you'll feel a
million times better and refreshed
afterwards. This isn't a quick fix, this is
something you should adapt into as a
lifestyle.
7. You're not alone. You have a huge
support group, online or at home, there
are plenty of other people trying to
achieve the same goals as you, going
through the same problems and dealing
with the same experiences. Talking to
someone always helps, there's a ton of
useful information out there from a lot
of well respected people. Don't be
afraid to ask.
8. Have fun. Look at what you're doing
and enjoy it, everytime you exercise
you're changing your body. If you're
bored of the treadmill jump off and go
on the bike, rowing machine, anything.
There's endless ways to make working
out fun, it doesn't always have to be
as grim as some people make out.
9. There's going to be people who
won't support you, who'll try to
convince you to binge drink out on a
friday night or share half a pizza with
them and to stop being so 'boring', and
yes, it's hard to resist and have enough
will power to say no, sometimes its a
lonely road when you feel isolated in
that manner, but that's what seperates
you from them. You should still have a
social life and enjoy yourself, have
treats here and there, but don't feel
forced into anything you don't want to
do.
10. Be proud of who you are and what
you're doing, of these steps you're
taking and sacrifices you're making to
become a healthier person. Not only
should you be amazed by yourself, but
you should remember the people you're
inspiring around you. You should think
about how you're going to feel once
you've achieved your goal/look, and
how others are going to look at you
when you have. It takes a considerable
amount of will power and determination
to achieve something great, and to
think about when you get to post your
'before and after' photo's which in turn
motivates and inspires others to push
harder.
If you set your mind to it, you CAN do
it!
Never give up

I think I have the most trouble with this
one, too many birthdays/holidays/get
togethers make it difficult to stick to a
diet. Once I get a little taste of the
sweets or the pizza, I wanna eat the
whole damn thing!
