The MOST important thing you can do at the gym to help yourself reach your goals?
Yup this is ultimately THE most important thing you can possibly do!
I know, I know…sometimes you just really cannot be bothered! And the thought of going through an hour long workout after a long day at work downright depresses you..
What you need to do is start SMALL….
Instead of setting yourself unrealistic goals to accomplish like “I am going to lose 10 kg by summer” or “I am going to get a six pack tomorrow”….How about you set yourself a goal of just simply….showing up!!
Because we all know how it goes…first week motivation mode: FULL ON….second week approaches…motivation mode: kinda on….third week approaches….motivation mode: F**K IT
Think about it….even if you literally half ass the workout you are still going to get better results than if you stayed at home doing f**k all!
You need to get out of the all or nothing approach because the little things really DO add up! Just like you are wondering…”how on earth did I end up gaining 5 kilos??” “how did this happen?”….well it works the same the other way around!
Start with something simple, you don’t have to go and do an hour of a full blown cardio session..honestly, try 10 minutes and that’s it! Once you can commit yourself to completing small tasks, slowly but surely you won’t mind doing an extra minute or two and before you know it BAMMMM you are actually working out! *round of applause*
Think about it…do nothing all week? Or do 15 minutes, seven times a week which would add up to 1 hour 45 minutes! I promise you things will start to snowball from there….
You need to stop obsessing over the body you want and start obsessing over CONSISTENCY!
Consistency is everything!! People give up too soon!
It really is the single most important aspect of your fitness. It is what will get you results!
One step at a time will ultimately lead you to exactly where you want to be….
Here’s to consistency!
