Got any tips for someone who lost motivation?

You come back in the game one step at a time. In everything: nutrition, workouts and motivation.

We all want to look like our favorite fitness model and do everything like they do. But let’s be honest, if we want to go from 0 to hero we will have to start small.

What motivates me everyday:

  • I found my why. Why am I doing all this? When you will find it, everything will be simpler.
  • I put a poster of my idol on my wall (Arnold) and look at him like “Bro, I’m coming for you!
  • I watch at least one inspiration/motivation video everyday, about fitness or life in general it helps a lot (srs)
  • I’m always hard with myself because I don’t want failure to be an option. When you start to discipline yourself, motivation doesn’t need to be here to make you do the job.
  • Get off the couch! I’m not judging you at all, but you’re not a baby anymore. It’s time to take decision! Otherwise, future “you” will look back and see regrets instead of memories.

Workout felt pretty good, then I cooked some chili for tomorrow. I’m hosting a Mexican night for friends and fam. Tomorrow I’ll be making the guacamole, chicken enchiladas and yellow rice and beans.  All are invited. Sombreros required for entry :D  

Happy Friday, all! <3

genius idea: since I’m afraid of the weight room and I wanna figure things out when no one else is there, and the north campus rec center isn’t open until 7 when all the middle aged people get there, but the central campus rec center opens at 5:30, what if a couple days a week i got up super early and run from north to central campus, lift there, and then take the bus back????

that is a terrible idea and I just need to get over my fear of people and the gym.

The bad news? Winter is coming. The good news? You are not a bear. That means you don’t have to hibernate. You don’t have to hunker down, curl up or stay in. You don’t have to binge-watch seasons 1-4. You don’t have to let holiday traditions trip you up. You don’t have to get cabin fever. You don’t even have a cabin. It’s the weatherman’s job to tell you what’s headed your way. It’s your job to not let it get in the way. You can’t choose the weather. But you can choose your winter.

Why I don't like "cardio:"

I can’t get “lost” while I run. Some people talk about a “runner’s high” or something to that effect. They can run for hours and their minds just go on auto-pilot. I am always very consciously running, and quite frankly, it’s boring to me.

I genuinely enjoy lifting. Squats, cleans, snatches, deadlifts, etc. excite me. I would lift for hours on end if I could. I don’t think I’ll ever feel that way about running.
