Know YOUR Limits

Road of travel

The road to success has curves, hills, rocks, and then you reach your destination.  However would you travel anywhere without proper preparation? Say on an empty tank? No oil? Flat tire? Or would you stop in the middle of flowing traffic without cause? How would you reach your destination.

This applies to exercise, or any goals you are trying to reach.

I am applying this metaphor to  workouts. You must have proper fuel to workout (nutrition / fuel). You must balance your carbohydrates and fats  (oil). You must have adequate sleep (flat tire), and to get results of any workout you must follow the specifics be it a calendar or and a trainer (stopping in the flow of traffic).

Know Your Limits, I have to remind myself with each workout my limits and you too should do the same.

PLANT THE SEEDS OF YOUR IMAGE

How do you picture yourself? Your image? How do you want to look?

Stop and just imagine, really how do you want to look?  I had to recently look at my image AGAIN. Yes because it was changing . Quick share, I was on a great movement to changing my image of me.  I got a bit side tracked and fell off.

When seeds are planted we look for a beautiful plant, tree, grass. We do what is necessary to make the growth the image we visioned.

How about your image? Did you plant your seeds? Your growth has several components and sometimes may need a little tweaking.  Just as seeds of the earth require watering, removing objects, pruning, trimming.

Nutrition, work out, sleep are the components to your image.  Okay now plant those seeds and look at your image. Oh how beautiful, handsome, healthy and fit you look.

 

 

PUSH TO THE YOU

I sometimes wonder if there are many individuals that share my defense in workout.  I know my goals and yet I  look for motivation on my “slack days”.

Slack days are what I call I want to stop half way through a workout, or I do not put all my energy into the workout, or just look for an excuse not to workout.

I have now created my own motivation.  I use the “PUSH” method.  I visualize how I want to look and feel and then I push.  I push through my workout with energy and I feel great.

So lets PUSH together and encourage others to PUSH there is a goal we want to achieve.

The POWER of Weights

We all have heard weights build muscles and females run away men run to.

The truth is weights have a greater role with both females and males.

Females, weights define, contour, and burn fat. Weights also lifts, I am so happy for the lift I am experiencing in my journey. Weights also is an aide to improve bone density.

Males, safety first but increasing the weight lifting in numbers will burn fat, and build muscle with consistency.

Of course,  female, or male NUTRITION  is important and the correct portion has a major role to get the full benefit of the power of weights.

 

SUPER ENERGY +EXCITEMENT

Is there a time in your life, as I  have many, that you felt ENERGIZED.  

Remember  that first love date, the excitement, or that bonus check?  How about the outfit you went off your budget ( I know everyone does not have one), fortunate for you.

Or do you recall your favorite super hero as a kid? Maybe receiving that special gift?

Vision these events, recall the feeling, now put all that together and get excited to create the body you want.

Whatever phase you are in your fitness, get EXCITED, add the ENERGY  and today begin to create the new you.
