It is not easy to stay motivated and train hard. Some times we feel strong and some times we just want to eat and watch TV. We need something or someone to wake us up and changeour mind. Motivation is very important especially for those days when you just can’t get going! Here is some help!
1. Take Responsibility.
Take responsibility for becoming a ” student ” of your fitness success. Think logically about your training and nutrition. The best experience
is your own experience. You will know your body and you will know exactly what your body needs at the right moment.
2. Dream Big!
Believe that getting in the best shape of your life is possible regardless of your age.
3. Invest in the Fitness Lifestyle.
Go to the SPA, massage, take classes like kick boxing ,yoga or spinning,….
4. For best results…Throw away your scale!
It doesn’t matter how much you weigh, it matters how much you look like you weigh.(muscle weighs twice as much as fat)
5. Drink more water
Strive to drink eight to ten glasses of pure water each day.
6. Become a morning person.
You will burn two to three times more fat first thing in the morning on an empty stomach than any other time of the day.
7. Think high-intensity training.
Stick to basic, compound, exercises to burn the most fat, and add variety to enjoy each workout.
8. Have faith and patience.
More is not better. Better is better! Be efficient and intense with your training, but not long. Limit yourself to three weekly trips to the gym, on non-consecutive days and guard against overtraining.
9. Eat small meals every two to three hours.
10. Avoid high-sodium foods.
Eat chicken, fish, plenty of vegetables, plenty for greens and salads, sweet potatoes, brown rice…
One of the toughest things about working out is getting started.
Personally from day one of exercising I was feeling great and I loved how my body was changing.
It took time until I saw the results because I was making mistakes. I was always doing more exercises then I needed. I was overtrained.
I loved it so much that I wanted to compete. At my first competition I placed second in the Slovakian Championship. That was the biggest
motivation for me to win the next year, which I did.
It was not easy, I didn’t have a sponsor and everything was expensive (bikinis, color, supplements…) I didn’t even have a trainer. But doing something with my life and with myself was enough for me. We all have these moments in life when we need to make important decisions.
Because I was motivated, my hard work paid off and I was crowned a World Champion and I became a professional fitness competitor.
Are you still confused on what to do next? Stop comparing yourself with others. Come to the gym and start making a lifestyle commitment
and don’t quit. “What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve!”
