Excuses are Strong; You Are Stronger
Create a positive approach to your fitness goals by realizing the benefit, both physically and mentally, and allow yourself the chance to achieve your goal.
You’ve committed to adopting a healthier lifestyle in 2020. Congratulations! As the days roll on and life gets busy, you may start to waver in your commitment. When this happens, realize excuses are strong; you are stronger.
Don’t Let Your Excuses Win
To achieve your goals, chunk them down into small digestible pieces. Create goals that you can complete within your work-out session, or within a week. With small achievable goals, the excuses have less of a chance of grabbing hold as you will be consistently hitting your milestones.
Motivate with Kindness
As life gets busy, you may have the following thoughts:
• I’m tired
• I’ll go tomorrow
• Skipping one day won’t make a difference
• I don’t want to work out today
• I have so much to do
• I have an event to attend
The only person who loses when you give into these popular excuses, is you. Combat these excuses with positivity and respect for your personal fitness goals. Speak to yourself with kindness and determination:
• I deserve this time for myself
• I’m part of a supportive community
• My health is my priority
• A healthy body leads to a healthy mind
• I deserve to take a break
• I’ll feel so much better after my workout
• My workout gives me the energy to tackle the day/week
• I love myself enough to take care of myself
Create a positive approach to your fitness goals by realizing the benefit, both physically and mentally, and allow yourself the chance to achieve your goal. If you fall off, don’t beat yourself up, get back to it the next day.
