“Of course it’s hard. It’s supposed to be hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. Hard is what makes it great.”
The journey that we’re on isn’t an easy one.
I’ve learned a lot of lessons so far. The first and most important is that this is not easy.
Gaining the weight was simple. I just sat around and ate. A lot. That part was easy.
Now, well this is what’s hard. Getting that motivation everyday to get out there and run and lift weights. My body is ready to go, it’s convincing my mind to continue out that seems to be the hard part. That seems to be the hard part for a lot of people.
I always here co-workers talk about how they don’t have the energy, they don’t have motivation, it’s too expensive, or they don’t have the clothes to workout in. I was the same way. Some days I still am.
What you have to focus on is overcoming those thoughts. Finding that energy can be one of the hardest things. I’ve found that drinking pre-workout has really helped me improve the motivation. Sometimes you need help. I won’t lie, but whatever you do, get out there.
You won’t start off running 10 miles in an hour. You won’t even start off bench pressing 100 lbs. Aiming for small goals will help you keep going. Shoot for walking 20 minutes, 5 days a week to start. Lift 5 lbs dumbbells. Small steps.
But it’s hard. It’s not easy. Again, if it were easy everyone would be able to do it.
You can do it.
