Fitness, unfortunately, doesn't work at quite the same tempo. Goals aren't met after the first workout. Clothes don't feel looser after that one run you went on that one time, and you can't get six pack abs by doing one set of 25 sit-ups. Since we cannot get what we want instantly out of exercise and eating healthy, most of us tend to give up. Not only do people give up physically, they give up mentally.
Exercise is uncomfortable, tough, and tries to break you. Getting to the next level with your exercise goals takes not only consistency, but the mental toughness to push yourself outside of your comfort zone.
First step? Find yourself a partner in crime. Someone that can hold you accountable for being consistant and showing up to workouts even on they days you don't want to move. I have been fortunate enough to find Ms. Showout Meg Parsons to keep me on track ...literally on the track too.
My thoughts? Why waste the time to go to the workout if you aren't even going to try.
Take home message - exercise is hard, reaching goals won't happen overnight, find yourself a workout buddy, and hold yourself accountable by keeping integrity in every workout.
Now get after it!
