Things I Wish I Knew...Pt. I
We've tried just about everything!
We've experimented with different training styles; read a lot of articles; reread those articles again; studied from various trainers; watched endless videos + then double checked those facts. After all of that, we still tripped + fell multiple times along the way.
Fitness is an endless journey + we're still learning as we go but there are a few things that we wish we knew before getting started. Here are those things...
SOME DAYS THERE IS NO MOTIVATION
Inspiration comes + goes. This is true for even the world's fittest athletes. There will be days when you just don't feel like working out; when you choose to sleep in or go straight home after work. This is normal + completely okay.
Motivation can't + won't carry you through your fitness journey. Sure, it helps but putting one foot in front of the other + trusting the process is what will eventually lead to the results. Continuing to put one foot in front of the other, even if its just small steps will not only make you stronger physically but mentally as well.
On those days where the motivation is lacking, try to do something active, even if its as small as going for a walk around the block. Something is almost always better than nothing....unless your body really does need to rest.
