Have you ever thought to yourself: I want his or her body. I wish I can get his/her body. I want to be skinny. I want to lose weight.
It shouldn’t be that way at all.
You should be thinking: I want to live a healthy life. I want to be active. I want to be a better version of myself.
In the end, it all comes down to the real reason as to why you want to work out, exercise or go to the gym, which is: for yourself. Not anyone else, but yourself.
Focus on you and your own body. Work on your body, figure out what works best for you.
You don’t need to have another person’s body. You don’t need to be envious of others and their physique. You don’t need to compare yourself with others. You are perfect in every way, those people who you wish to become? They all have flaws, just like you. They too had to work hard to get to where they are. You can do it too. You should not only focus just on losing weight since it will become a short-term thing.
Be the better version of yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself well, I’m sure as hell that I believe in you! Even if it takes time, no matter how long it is.
You. Will. Get. There.
There’s no rush anyway, this isn’t a race. There’s no reason to be chasing time (unless you have a photoshoot coming up or you’re competing).
Don’t let other people’s words affect you, especially if they are demotivating words.
Only you know your progress and how bad or well you are doing. The others don’t know the effort you put in or how hard you work.
You wanna gain more muscle or fat because you’re too skinny?
You can do it.
You wanna lose fat (NOT lose weight!) and reduce the flabbiness of your arms and stomach?
You can do it.
You can bloody do it. 2018? Yeah. You’re gonna be whopping 2018’s ass because you are so gonna goddamn get what you want and ACHIEVE it. You don’t even need to just go to the gym.
Yoga? POP Pilates? Muay Thai? Zumba? Jogging? Running? Football? Swimming?
You can achieve your fitness goals with ALL of the above! Find what you love, and do it. Don’t just be a couch potato. The main reason for all of these goals is to live a healthy, well-balanced life.
Of course, nutrition plays a HUGE part as well. But if you don’t consume junk food or food with high sodium every single day & hour, I’m sure you’re good to go.
It’s all about BALANCE.
Don’t be eating McDonald’s and cup noodles every day then wonder why nothing is changing.
Plan it out, and you’ll get there.
Figure out what is your 2018 Fitness Goal, and take the steps necessary to achieve it.
Remember, this is not a diet. This is not a short-term thing.
It is long-term, it is a lifestyle. It is a lifelong journey.
