Let’s face it… for most people, getting back in shape is not easy, no matter who tells you it is. You can count on:
-things getting tough,
– muscle soreness
– general discomfort as your body adapts to the new stresses you are placing on it.
While pain is a subjective term for another blog post, and should be avoided while training, if you’re not uncomfortable, you’re most likely not growing (or losing).
But guess what? There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, because you’re gonna make it. And, if you continually making a concerted effort to get better, you’re going to get results.
The body has an incredible ability to not only heal itself, but get stronger and more endured if you provide the proper timeframe and stress to allow it to. Most people’s problems are that they give themselves too much time to recover, and not enough time spent training (not only training, but doing the necessary things they need to do to their training program to continue getting results).
Bottom line, after all the initial glitz and glamour of starting a fitness routine, for most people, it is very difficult to keep it going. It can be a grind.
Try this: Give your new fitness routine 21 days, and promise yourself you’re going to hit it, and hit it with intention. You’re going to give it you’re all in the gym, and you’re not going to allow ANY slip ups in your diet. 21 days. That’s how long it takes most people to form a habit, and that’s how long I want you to give your new fitness routine a shot.
If you need help with a training routine, I’d be happy to help, please feel free to contact.
