Motivation To Be Fit

Over the years post high school, I go back and forth on my weight. I will get to a point we’re I am just no happy nor comfortable with the shape of my figure. I also start to lose the weight, but once I get to a certain point, I stop and start to eventually gain it all back. 

We have all been there…

Starting a workout routine is like starting a new job some place. You are excited to start this new eventure and see where it takes you. You are nervous because you are unsure if you’ll like it, but you need this in your life. Once you are there for a few months, you are shocked by how much time has passed and how good you’ve become. 

My problem is, once I get to a certain point, I get bored. I know my figure will never look like it did back in my track and field days. I was fit. I felt great about myself. When looking in the mirror, after several months of working out, I just don’t see the results fast enough. Or, I simply become bored and find other things that peak my interest more. 

Motivation…

This is what is needed to keep yourself involved. This is what you need to keep yourself moving towards your end goal. Unfortunately, I tend to start to loose this motivation. 

Need Some Motivation…

What keeps you motivated?

What routines have worked for you?

What have you done to change your life to get yourself into a healthy lifestyle?

Struggling…

I need some motivation, now more than ever, to get myself back on a healthy routine. I work from home and have many workout programs in my DVD collection. I just, for the life of me, can not figure out how to jump start this routine. 

Any suggestions and/or advise would be greatful. 

Please comment and let me know what keeps you motivated and what you have found works best for you.

The Challenge…

Many people is this world strive to be fit, healthy, or at least, in-shape.  The problem folks run into is work, life, laziness, and sleep. Work takes up 40 hours of your time awake during the week. The sleeping takes up, at least, six hours of your night routine. Just this alone will give you twelve hours (on average) of the day still left. Plan an hour a day to get ready, and an hour total to commute to and from work, you would still have eight to ten hours left of your day.

What you do during your free time makes you the person you are today!

If you snack and lay around all day, sleep all day, watch movies/TV shows all day, on your computer or game console, then you need to set goals to stop yourself from repeating the same habits that you are too comfortable with already. Making goals aren’t complicated. Have one big goal in mind. Then make small goals to help you achieve the big goal.

Let’s say you want to loose 25lbs and add some muscle (or tone) to your body as well. Looking at the bigger goal, you may lose focus, however, if you have a smaller goal of a pound a week for twenty weeks, and weight training at least twice a week, in the twenty weeks you will notice that your bigger goal has been met.

I am writing up a goal for myself that I will post on my blog. Ask me questions if you need help setting yours. Together, we can create a network that we can count on to keep us focused. Together, we can keep our bigger goals in sight. Together, we can help others that need assistance as well.
