To change, on my fitness journey I’m always looking and listening. Okay let me clarify I look for ways to improve my current journey what can I also include in my fitness and nutrition. I’m not in any going to exclude my current workout. I had to learn the not so easy way.
To change I must
A. Be committed
B. Want the change
C. Be willing to follow the leader which means the program trainer and nutrition
E. Ask questions when in doubt instead of just quitting
F. Being committed means to not just say it but show up and do it
G. Evaluate before saying it doesn’t work for me, evaluate if I did 100% of what was required
Theses are a few assessments I learned of me to make change and see change on my fitness journey, how about you?
Happy New Year!!!!!. There are several things I now as well as you- 2020 begins a new decade, a new year and for many new resolutions. It’s the resolutions I’d like to focus on. Why?, well I once made resolutions and they were great, I followed through for a minute which means about a month for me then slacking and more slacking and then the resolution just vanished especially on my fitness journey.
What changed I did, instead of resolutions I opted for a change of lifestyle which is not or shall I say was not an easy transition. I had to first commit to myself and rate did I really want to make changes, which ones I would commit to no matter what. I wrote a letter to myself for me to look at every day which detailed my WHY and it was for only 30 days. As I said it was not an easy transition for me on my fitness journey at first. Noticing small changes in myself assisted me and I was able to extend for an additional 30 days and the journey begin.
I’ve learned it was easy to make a life style change, evaluate, adjust versus a resolution or resolutions. It was easy to toss a resolution first because I wasn’t committed and sometimes it or they were not realistic but a life style change with whys and adjustment for me was so much easier. I’m thrilled I recognized what works for me.
How about you? Are you beginning a fitness journey and made resolutions for the journey? I ask are they realistic? Will you stay committed? I know you can but make it a lifestyle change begin with small changes and stay 100 percent to it and every 30 day evaluate and adjust and you too will recognize the difference in resolution and life style change.
Now what does that sound like and how can they be related well I’m going to share with you.
Learning the not so easy way being determined to achieve a goal or goals as I am in my fitness journey is just that….. A DETERMINATION. Writing my goals down adjusting when necessary as this past week due to a slap of upper respiratory infection. But being determined means a focus a commitment and more commitments.
You can be determined to achieve a goal as I once was before I committed. I would be determined to change my nutrition and workouts as they were not working for me. I WANTED change, I whispered it, I shouted it, I even shared it and I know so many laughed and to be honest once I realized my own default I too chuckled.
DETERMINED huh, really okay. But I was not committed. Committing to one day, one week or one month is not determination its a wishful dream. I had to blast myself and still do. If I’m determined to stay on my fitness journey I MUST be COMMITTED.
So now you see how close the two are and they are ever so close.
To ending this decade and beginning a new one with determination and commitment to your goals to OUR goals.
I’ll squat and raise the bar to both
