So how are those New Years Resolutions going?? Right about now is when people are finding it a struggle to keep up with their motivation. And I tell ya what, that is including ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today, I was supposed to meet a friend at the gym for an intense cardio session (my worst enemy! I hate Cardio, haha) and when I was driving their I got a text message that she was bailing on me. Now, as I am driving I realize that I have two choices 1) Go to the gym and complete my session solo or 2) Go home...............As I am in route to the gym I am thinking of all possible excuses to have to go home such as, my dog needs to go to the vet today and I have other stuff to do, I need to study (I just started my CSCS program), I am hungry and I wasn't prepared with snacks everything and anything went through my head for the next 5 minutes. I then made the decision to call my husband because I knew he would talk to me as I would to a client, and low and behold he did, and I went to the gym and felt FABULOUS afterward.
The moral of my story is everybody needs help and support getting to their goals. This is not a sign of weakness. The reason I am in business is not because people are not intelligent and can't figure out the things that I can, although obviously I have spent countless hours studying the material, or that people don't have goals. The #1 reason I am in business is motivation. No matter your fit level, goals, budget, etc.. everybody can benefit from this type of constant support. I am thankful to have a husband that will say these things to me, let's face it I don't always have the best reaction, but it is because of those words that I continue to meet my health and fitness goals and stay on track.
So I challenge everyone to find a family member, friend or trainer that will give you the constant support that you need to achieve great things!!!!!
