Ever been mad at someone then they made you laugh?
You gotta really try to stay mad in these cases! haha
This is an example of your mood state changing.
Perhaps you had a good reason to be upset, but once your STATE changed, you smiled.
The cool thing is you can harness this 'mood switch' to get in better shape.
You choose your mood. Therefore you choose your mindset.
So yes, fitness is tough. I totally agree.
But you have a choice:
1) choose to be mad at the world and act like a victim
2) choose to become a warrior and get on with the job
Look, you’re only human and we all have ‘those days’ but the fact remains - nobody but you can bring your dreams into reality.
Here’s a few pointers that may help if you’re struggling with the right mindset to improve your fitness, health and body shape:
1) People around you are going to sabotage your success.
So called 'friends' and family WILL try to make you eat cake at work, ice-cream at home or go on a night out when you're trying to eat clean and sleep well.
Honestly, you are making THEM feel uncomfortable.
Who really cares?
You've got goals to hit
You've got to understand that their initial feelings of discomfort will eventually turn to admiration
Soon they'll be asking you HOW you did it (as you think, 'no thanks to you pal'...)
2) YOU are going to sabotage your success.
You have a fear of success
You're addicted to being a failure, being overweight, being unfit or whatever else
Painful to admit, and I HAVE BEEN THERE, trust me
But you must first realise that if you truly lived and breathed fitness, health, being lean and strong
You wouldn't be in this situation you are now
The WORST thing you could do is ignore this
Face up to it
You gotta ask yourself why
Why am I giving up so easily?
Why do I try to diet for just 3-5 days, which I KNOW isn't enough time to see physical changes, yet get disheartened when I weigh/look the same every week?
Why do others around me seem to get success so easily?
You are addicted to pain and struggle
On some level, every time you give up and eat junk food it makes you feel GOOD
Every time you miss going to the gym you feel awesome
You know why?
Because it's PAINFUL to eat clean all the time
HORRIBLE to push until your lungs are about to burst
SICKENING to feel your legs burn half an hour after you've finished training!
...so of course you're going to feel great when you miss a meal/session
You've just avoided pain - let yourself off the hook
But you need to go through the pain to hit your goals
Yet your brain is wired to avoid pain
So suck it up, get a little perspective and push on
You really can push yourself to step up and achieve more
