With all of the hype fitness has generated we are seeing more people we know take the plunge into being more active and trying to live a healthier lifestyle. More are joining cross fit gyms while others are lifting more to create the physique of their dreams. As we watch the anxious newbies build their Instagram popularity and share their recent workouts and meal plans how many of them are sticking to their goals? During this journey how many of them are seeing their goals through?
The Struggle Is Real
If you are like me, you watch your Facebook feed fill up with the latest workout craze, cleanest meal prep, and the hottest pre workout to get you blitzed for the day. Every day is someones leg day, chest day, squat challenge, burpee until you barf…you get the idea. Committing to a plan is no walk in the park. It takes planning, hard work, and dedication to truly commit to a fitness program if you want to gain real results. ‘Can’t lose those last five pounds?’ ‘Gains not coming on fast enough?’ Truth is, it’s you. You are the culprit that is keeping you from your goals. Trust me, I’ve heard it all, seen it all, and even had it happen to me before. There is no magic pill, just consistent behavior that leads to your goals.
Consistency Is Key
There’s that word again. Consistency. By definition means
Make Up Your Mind
You have to mentally prepare yourself to get into a fitness routine. For most of us it enters our mind and we decide to research the latest trends. Next we start noticing more people we know getting results in the gym or from some app they are using to follow along. Then we make our move to join a gym or start going for a run or even watch youtube videos to get into shape. Regardless of how you start your mind must be made up to do it because when we are dragged into going to workout or if its suggested and you are only going to please someone else then you have already lost the battle. Hence, the fitness reality check. Wake up people!!!
