Keep Going. Fitness is a Lifestyle

When it comes to your fitness, how often do you have to give yourself a pep talk?

I’ll go first! I literally have to wake up almost every day and remind myself that if I work out, I will have a terrific day. Not only that, but if a workout is completed early in the morning, my productivity throughout the day will increase.

Now I’m not going to lie to you; sometimes, my pep talk goes in one ear and out the other.

When this happens, I pull out the big guns (my accountability group) and find my inspiration. We help push each other on the days that seem dark and hopeless. We motivate each other on the days we are killing it in the gym because let’s be honest, a cheering squad will have you thinking you can flip a car with your bare hands.

Fit Group

Surrounding yourself with people who believe fitness is a lifestyle and not a fad is essential. When you are on the same accord, you will pass each other different workouts, healthy recipes, and loads of videos that pertain to improving your knowledge of physical fitness. A group will slap that second cookie out of your hand or if you’re on your third run for the week to your favorite ice cream shop they’ll shake you until you come to your senses!

Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t have these things; of course, you should but not every dog on day! Life is all about BALANCE and showing your body love daily. 

Most Days are rough

On most days, you will feel like throwing in the towel and giving up on your workouts and healthy eating, and that’s when you need to remind yourself that quitting isn’t an option. Instead, you must change how you value/devalue food, exercise, peace, and self-love. 

The more you commit to yourself, the better your life will be. As a matter of fact, I have never heard anyone complain about being off of medications, being able to stand up without pain, getting too much rest, or feeling too energetic. 

A healthy life is the best way to live life, so DON’T STOP. No matter how difficult today may be for you….KEEP GOING!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. taking on instructing clinics and looking after a couple of run clubs get’s me out the door……honestly every day has become so good lately, that I look forward to the next…..I attempted something called the 75 day hard…I dropped out of that at one point (I just can’t do 45 minutes twice a day every day without a rest day)….but that I think got me into a very good place

  3. I’ve started getting more success with my fitness regime after I accepted that I’d feel crappy about it more days than not. Too many people put the emphasis on liking your exercise routine, but they forget that anything worth pursuing does involve at least a bit of sacrifice, and sacrifice is never fun.

    It is a lifestyle indeed and not a quick hack. Great point. Thanks for this post!

    1. Sacrifice is right. Great point!
      Every workout that I loved in the beginning, I dreaded it in the end. I focus more on wanting to live a longer pain free life.
      Thank you so much for reading.
