Oh look how much that guy is lifting! Look at that lady attacking that treadmill! Stop, are you at the gym for you or to pay attention to all the people around you? That is a question that only you can answer.

Working It Out
Whenever I speak to an athlete or gymgoer about their goals in the gym inevitably the topic comes to motivation. If only I was more motivated I wouldn’t have to start over. If only I was more motivated, more often.The problem with depending on motivation to get us into the gym is a deep one. Because we rely on motivation to insure that we go and complete our workout today we are subjecting ourselves to the whims and fickle nature that is motivation.After all, our motivation changes from day to day, sometimes moment to moment.

I have a new client who started training with me just a few weeks ago. She's 65-newly retired from a government job where she worked for many years. The transition to retirement has been tough and she confessed that she's felt depressed. Her health has declined, and the first time we spoke over the phone, she shared with me that there are times she doesn't want to leave the house because she feels so ashamed of the weight she's gained.

What were you inclined to fill in the blank?  It may be very enlightening. "I think I can, I think I CAN, I think I CAN, I ... CAN ...."  is often the mantra I repeat as I run the hills in my neighborhood, one small step at a time. These few focused words keep me in the moment and while each step may be hard, it is much easier to believe I am capable of the next single step forward than it is for me to tackle the entire hill all at once and with every step.

I have failed in this department and I believe I have identified an error in my priorities. OLD1-    Faith (spiritual- where does my value come from)2-    Family (physical- what are the needs of my family)3-    Work (financial- what are our financial requirements)
