Why do you workout??
I see so many people coming into the gym, getting excited about changing their body. More than often, results are not instant enough and they lose interest. Instead of focussing on the scales & what you look like, try focussing on how exercise makes you feel. The results will come. Be patient.
I work out because it makes me feel powerful 💪🏽 It is my mood changer. Working out should be a reward, something you do for YOU, not a punishment.
So I ask of you, why do you workout?...... #whydoyyouworkout#trainer#mindset#resultswillcome#bepatient#workout#weights#hiit#crosstrain#cardio#dance#yoga#boxing
Yes you too can do it, but be sure to set realistic goals. It will take time, hard work, take you out of your comfort zone but the goal is what will keep you going. Follow pages that motivates you rather than those that make you feel intimidated or insecure. I have been following Lakeisha of @stepping_out_of_stuck and I must say she keeps it real 🙌🏼
RepostBy @stepping_out_of_stuck: "When starting any journey, it's important to go into it with a realistic mindset. Social media can have us feeling less than and like we have to be just like someone else in order to be "goals". That's not true! I am "goals" because I'm my own goals. Sure, I may see someone else and think, wow she's got a banging body, but then I realize that in my own right, I do as well😊. They say don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle. I agree and would add don't compare your reality to someone else's reality. In my reality, I'm not going to "train hard" to achieve what Suzy next door has. I'm going to train according to what lakeitha wants. Some people enjoy beasting it out in the gym, I enjoy a good cardio session followed a few weights. I guess what I'm trying to say here is, figure out what YOU want and not what "she" wants. I wanted to lose 100lbs, wear a size 12 instead of a 24, tuck my shirt, play with my boys, not need a seatbelt extender, and not worry if I could "fit" on xyz. Done. What is it that YOU really want? Let's start there😊"
