how do I fucking get over my lazyness and start a fucking workout routine and stop telling myself that I'm "too exhausted" after a day of classes, so I will finally get into shape instead of being a fucking blob lying on the couch?
I have two pieces of advice when it comes to working out:
The first is actually Terry Crew’s advice (link). Treat the gym like a spa. Go there all the time, even if you’re not working out. Just chill and read a book, but make a habit of going to the gym (if you have one). Pretty soon, getting there will feel effortless and you’ll start actually working out. He explains it better. Also, look at him, he’s fucking ripped. He knows his workout advice.
Secondly, start small. Don’t commit yourself on day one to a workout. Just commit yourself to like five sit-ups. It will take less than a minute of your time. That’s less time than you probably spend in the bathroom. Then tomorrow do five more. Spend one minute of your time each day for a week doing this. Then five minutes. Fit it in whenever it works for you, even if it’s just during commercial breaks (assuming you still watch actual TV instead of netflix). Slowly build up to a full workout. It’s a lot easier to find one minute in your day than it is to find one hour, especially when you’re not yet dedicated to working out.
“You look in the mirror and see yourself, but really, it’s not you at all. I mean, there’s your eyes and your nose and your cute little smile, but that’s not all there is to you. Because you’re not seeing the amount of lives you’ve touched with your presence. You’re not seeing all the people you’ve made smile and laugh. You’re not seeing how strong you are. In fact, all the battles you’ve overcome are completely invisible when you look in the mirror, hidden beneath your outside features. So, my darling, listen to me when I say this: you are not as simple as a reflection. You are complex, wonderful and something brilliant that a mirror simply does not have the capability to show. It’s only showing one tree in the forest, one star in a galaxy, one grain of sand at the beach. And you are so much more than that. Please believe it.”
there is so much more to you than what meets the eye
I decided to make a more current before and after. I remember, the photo on the left, I thought I was happy and looked great, in all honesty. Nahh, deep down, I knew I was not. I wanted to go places and walk tall with confidence, but I knew I could not do that. If you read my about me, it explains a bit more.
But with hard work, you can really overcome anything.
The good or the bad.
In case you were wondering, right now, in the unseen, all bets are placed in out continued inevitable success.
A morning run playlist can make or break a workout. While curating a playlist, you have to keep so many things in mind - is it energetic enough to motivate you to actually go out instead of hitting the snooze button? Does it have a good enough beat to distract you from the impending torture? Is it just upbeat enough to get you feeling good about the day, or is it so full of clashing drums and ear-piercing guitar riffs that all you want to do is smash something? Here is a playlist for all your morning run needs, hitting that perfect in-between balance of early mornings. Listen to the playlist here.
