Do You have the Guts to do this?

chickens Pictures, Images and PhotosThe other day prior to me going out of town, I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

Is it me or does it seem like everytime I get ready to go out of town there are a million things to get done prior to leaving?

Any how I knew that I had to or that I should get a workout in because I wasnt sure how much exercise I would be getting since I wasnt quite sure of the quality of the fitness center at where I was staying. so  when I went to the  studio that I train at  to take care of some business,  I decided I should do some cardio while I was there. So when I was done  with my business, I turned to the cycling bike that I had intended to use and thought:

 I dont have time for this today, Do I really need to work out? Im in pretty good shape, skipping one day wont hurt, its boring, maybe Ill do it later today, not today. Those are just a few of the things that went through my head all at once.

So after I told myself that it was a MUST that I get some cardio in TO day, I jumped on and began the workout. It wasnt as bas as I had imagined and  Divorce Court was on Judge Mablean Pictures, Images and Photos,
so that helped with the time. ( I usually dont watch that junk but desperate times, calls for desperate measures).

I had a revelation while working out(& in between commercials), if I struggle with my mind and body about working out from time to time and I enjoy it for the most part, what do my clients and others feel like when its time to workout. I began to understand why it is so hard for many of us to work out consistently. Our mind and body wants to do what is comfortable and nice. But in order to get in shape and stay in shape we must conquer these excuses with in ourselves.

So I began to think what made me fight through the obstacles I had built in my Mind?

DESIRE. My Desire to stay in shape and look good and feel good over rode the desire to go home and relax.(get out of shape and feel tired all the time)

Responsibility-  I felt that it was my responsiblity as a fitness expert/personal trainer to fight through and workout, so I could be an example to my clietns . As well as taking care of my body.

Owed it to myself at this point you may be saying myself would be happy if I went home and relaxed. True in the short term the body would like that but the long term affects of inactivity and eating unhealthy foods will cause your body to malfunction. Whether it be disease,pain, discomfort or all three . This could also be classified as SElf Discipline. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. So take some time to do some Self examination, I know its not easy but it will be well worth it.

I would Love to hear what you. Let me know if Im off base. And what are your most common struggles.

Dedicated to Your Fitness Success!!
