Are You Consistent? Pat Yourself on the Back!

Hello. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm so hyped up and happy and in the mood to sing. I feel I have finally found consistency in my training and consistent motivation in my workouts. See how happy I was at today's workout? (Well, my smile could have been a bit larger!) 

This motivation isn't always there, you know. You work out consistently for a few weeks and think, "Well, I'm gonna do this for the rest of my life," and then a week later you're telling yourself, "I'm too tired to go to the gym anymore." I get that. I'm not always go, go, go either. I'm not always super motivated. If you're a beginner and you struggle with this, try to find a consistent way to work out but don't make it more than 15 minutes a day for maybe 3 days a week. Don't work out every day! Plot out a workout plan and then commit to sticking with it for a couple of months. If you do, you will get better long-term results. I think it's a very important part of life to have some level of fitness, but it's really about whatever is enjoyable to you. You can make real progress on 3 workouts a week. People treat fitness like it's a sprint but it's more like a marathon. So if you want to cultivate long-term fitness, forget about all those 30-day challenges out there. They NEVER work.

At the end of the day, if you're becoming fairly consistent with your workouts, give yourself a big pat on the back. And if you can't reach your back, there are stretches I can recommend you can do for that :-) 

Make it a wonderful day!
