What was your goal ? Remember: you didn’t start working out randomly. You wanted this. Why? Remind yourself! “When you feel like quitting, think about why you started!”
You so got this. When you’re in the gym, sweating out all those excuses, remember how strong you are. Your excuses don’t define you, nor do they help you. Overcome ! “Be stronger than your excuses.”
You are not weak. You have not failed . Just because you aren’t feeling especially motivated doesn’t mean you can’t find inspiration. “You only fail when you stop trying.”
Don’t work out to be “skinny .” Don’t workout to be “hot” for that guy/girl you have your eye on. Work out to be the best you you can be. Don’t you want to live to be 100? “Fall in love with taking care of your body.”
Tough love is sometimes the best way to go. Sure, chips or cookies sound good, but doesn’t a new, smaller pair of jeans sound better? Think about it : “Junk food you’ve craved for an hour, or the body you’ve craved for a lifetime? Your decision.”
Be proud of the work you have done. After all, “If it was easy, everyone would do it.” Allow yourself to have a secret competition with those around you. Who’s been to the gym the most this week?
It would be so great to just wake up one morning and have the body of your dreams , but you have to work, and work hard, for that body. “You don’t get what you want, you get what you work for.”
