I was asked about how to stay motivated throughout a fitness journey. I then went deeper and found out they would go to the gym 5-6 days a week for a couple weeks, lose motivation, then give up. The cycle would continue, but results would not continue. I believe there’s too many people biting off more than they can chew. I’d love to see you working out 2-3 times per week, every single week, over a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis. You can absolutely get to the gym 2-3 times each week for about 40 minutes a session. That’s so practical. I don’t care how busy you are, you do have the 1-2 hours per week to invest in your health. The person that works out twice per week over several decades will look and feel much healthier than the person that gets fired up to make a transformation when January 1st rolls around, goes hard for 3 weeks, then gives up completely. Intensity is king, but consistency is God.
I planned for having my workout this morning. The alarm went off. I rolled over, still delirious as I was unconscious 10 seconds earlier. Everything inside me was telling me, “roll back over, you need to rest.” Then there was a little voice that presented itself, “Do it. Let’s go.” I then proceeded to get up, get in my car, and drive to the gym, where there was only 1 other person working out on this Sunday morning. I hit legs, and am now ready to take on my day. I ignored the voice of excuse, laziness, and mediocrity. I chose to listen to the voice of action, offense, and discipline. Which voice do you listen to?
This is my 100th blog post. I want to spend this post thanking you for taking the time out of your day to read my content. I’ve enjoyed tapping into the creative side of myself over the last several months. I’m only scratching the surface of what I can establish over the next few years. I look forward to growing with all of you. If you’re thinking about starting a blog, or starting a new training or nutrition program, START NOW. Stop contemplating it, stop pondering. Take action! You won’t regret it. Once again, thank you and let’s keep the positive momentum rolling!
