Some mornings I get up and I can’t even fathom how I am going to get myself to the gym let alone actually workout! Once I put my mind into workout mode I find the drive within myself. My mind might be telling me no or I can’t but NEVER EVER will you hear me say I can’t! Please take I can’t out of your vocabulary! Replace it will I will try my hardest!
Whether you’re doing a DVD workout program, a workout program you found online or you’re at the gym set small goals. Tiny goals! For example I will get on the treadmill to jog and commit myself to staying on for 10 minutes. Saying over and over in my head “you got this” because I can”! I find a focal point and stare at it. I allow my music to overwhelm me pushing me to jog a little faster. Once I hit the 10 minute mark and realize I didn’t fall off or die I let that inspire me to stay on for another 5 minute goal. Those tiny goals work for me. I get such satisfaction meeting the goal that it drives me to want more. I will look at the machine I am on and see that I am almost at a mile and want to stay on to get to the mile or to burn a certain amount of calories!
I never in a million years thought this would be my frame of mind or body. I know that this is forever because its my way of life not a diet. Now tonight or tomorrow when you workout…set a small goal! Come back and post a comment and tell me what goal you met:)
