Some people are always seeking motivation - "I just wish I was motivated to train", as if someday that will just magically change. For some it does, but not many. The only thing that gets you anywhere in training and in life is DISCIPLINE.
Discipline is the difference between what you want now and what you want most. So, when the alarm goes off at 6am, what you want NOW is another hour in bed. However, what you want MOST is to lose body fat. So, get up and train!
Remember, your mind will always try to demotivate you. How many running conversations do you have in your own head about not wanting to go to the gym?
Those conversations are simply nonsense!
I'm too tired... Nonsense
I haven't eaten right today… Nonsense
I'm sore from yesterday's session… Nonsense
We all know if we really had to go, we would. Nobody has ever gone to the gym and said they regretted working out.
So, remember, NO MOTIVATION. Just discipline for your path to success.
Also, forget waiting for a perfect situation to start training. Forget waiting to feel great or energetic before going to the gym. Do it regardless. People I know who are in great shape just show up. When I ask them how their workout was, more often than not they answer, "pretty average". Average, completed consistently gets you a long way!
The fitness industry sells many secrets. The secret to good abs. The secret to bigger arms, or a smaller waist. How to look good, feel great, and in the minimum time.
The fitness industry sells a dream. You'll get the body you've always wanted and they make it sound so easy.
What they don't tell you is you'll have that nagging voice telling you to take a day off, train lighter, leave early or to stay in bed.
Remember, training should be the fun bit. Work hard, have fun, enjoy movement.
