We don’t realize just how much we’re hurting ourselves when we neglect our health. We have one body and we should respect it. A wise friend once told me:
“Your body is a temple, treat it like one”- Austin White.
Those words have resonated with me for years.
A common misconception is that cardio alone will make you thin and fit. What some people fail to realize are the many fat-loss benefits of weight lifting.
I love this one because it promotes taking control your life. It’s only you in the weight room. It’s only you that can make those changes. Nobody can do this for you – it’s in YOUR CONTROL to CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
There are no excuses in the gym. You won’t be productive with a bad attitude. Look at the positives in your training and don’t hold yourself back with negative thinking.
Nothing in this world feels better than knowing that you EARNED it all and did not back out or take the easy way out.
If you can go down this list and check them all off, you are on the right track! If not, take the opportunity to adopt these new affirmations into your life.
This reminds me that no matter how the weather looks outside, going to the gym needs to be done.
There are no excuses.
Finally, the end result of my journey! I’ve achieved the bodyweight I wanted, now I’ve my sights set on new and bigger goals. No matter how high I must climb I know I’ll get there because, in the end, HARD WORK PAYS OFF!!
