Are you stuck making excuses as to why you cannot exercise???
➖I have no time➖I am exhausted
➖I can't afford it➖I have children
➖I work till late ➖You just don’t understand..
Well no, actually I do understand. This is life for most of us. We all have pressures, difficulties, responsibilities, some more than others of course however I’m a strong believer that it’s all a matter of priorities.
Nobody can make you get up and do it but you.
Here are a few tips to help you get started or stay on track:
Firstly and most importantly ➖Check your attitude, no more complaining, no more blaming and no more negativity! That stops right now! ➖Plan your training days. Schedule them in to your diary. Eg: Monday 6am, Wednesday 5pm and Saturday 9am. Even if you are exercising at home. Whatever and wherever it is, schedule in the time every week. Commit to it, and do not make any other plans during those times. DO NOT change your scheduled times, just like a meeting or an appointment, you must stick to it. The only time you should cancel is when you are unwell. Once you start changing things around, it's that easy to loose momentum.
➖Plan what you are doing each day:
Monday - boxing
Tuesday - glutes and legs
Wednesday - walk, etc
➖Write down your goals and set targets. That may look like a list, pictures, or quotes. Whatever works for you. Visit that regularly.
➖If you’re exercising first thing in the morning, do not snooze your alarm. Have absolutely everything ready. Training gear, water bottle, keys. You don’t want to make things difficult first think in the morning.
➖If you’re training during or after work, take your training gear with you. If you go home, your less likely to leave again. ➖Buy some new training gear and keep it displayed. Visual cues are a wake up call to your brain.
➖Get a training partner, you're less likely to cancel on your friend.
➖Take progress shots for yourself or start posting your progress on social media - makes you more accountable and offers you more support. Don't feel silly, everyone is doing it!
➖Get some good music to train with, music increases your endurance by 15 percent.
TIME TO GET MOVING 👊🏽
