So I’m hoping you’re a normal productive member of society, you either have a job or go to school, or both. You may also have kids or have the responsibility to take care of other loved ones in your life.
If for some reason you don’t fall into this category, good luck in life.
Anyways, the point I want to make is that everyone is busy. We all have shit to do and take care of on an everyday basis.
Why does this matter?
Because it’s VERY easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to working out and losing weight. It can seem mundane and monotonous, even if you change your workouts up and change the healthy foods you eat!
So if you’ve ever felt like this, I want you to ask yourself this ONE question:
“Do I know my why?”
“Know Your Why” is a motto that Washington Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III lives by. I borrowed this from him.
KNOW YOUR WHY basically means Know Why You’re Doing Something!
And also to never forget that reason.
You didn’t just wake up one day and randomly say “oh I think I’ll start exercising and eating right today.”
You did it for a reason! Do you remember why you started? Have you forgotten already?
And don’t give me the whole “oh I just want to be healthier.”
That’s bullshit! EVERYONE would like to be healthier.
WHY do you want to be healthier? Why is that important to you?
Drill it down to the very specific. Dig deep and really think why you’re doing this.
Everyone has a different reason, but I’ll share some of the most specific and powerful ones I’ve came across as a personal trainer.
“I want my husband to look at me like he used to.”
“I want to be around to see my kids grow up, I can’t keep up with them.”
“I’m getting married in ____ months and I want to look good in my dress!”
“I want to wear whatever I want and not buy ‘cover up’ clothes!”
“I want to have a girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife, I’m sick of having no confidence.”
I could go on and on…but you get the point. It goes BEYOND just the number (lbs lost, inches lost, sizes lost).
Think of how you’d feel if you looked exactly the same in 3 months from now…
Sucks doesn’t it?
Now think of how different you’ll look in 3 months if you DON’T QUIT!
Now stay focused and KNOW YOUR WHY!
Take it one day at a time, be better than you were yesterday and you’ll be just fine
