Activity Update...In the last week I have:
What do all of these things have in common?
A Lot of People in the Fitness Biz Want to Convince You that Working Out Is Easy if You're a Good Person.
"Good person" - As in, has lots of intrinsic motivation to exercise...
Let me let you in on a secret, getting out the door IS NOT EASY! It's not easy even when you literally own your own gym and spend all day in it! There have been so many days where I was within 5 feet of a barbell with not too much on my schedule and I still "didn't get around to it".
So What Can You Do to Help Stick to Your Routine or Goals?
GET YOURSELF SOME HELP!
Of course everyone's access to help is different and certain activities may not be possible because of work, babies, etc...
But getting a little help from friends or family or teachers can make the difference between feeling successful and feeling stuck. (Don't let people make you think they do it all themselves. Anybody who is working out a ton, especially if they have a baby, is getting lots of help in various ways.)
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.
