I’m telling you right now that what I’m about to talk about in this article is not going to be easy, BUT, that’s EXACTLY what you want (I’ll explain why later). If you want to finally drop pounds fast after struggling for any amount of time due to procrastination, little willpower, no motivation, or if you have been swindled with those ineffective fad diets, then this article is for you. Continue reading to learn more and get started on your path to a brand new you (mentally, physically, and with your appearance).
First off, please understand that I am not some certified health consultant, personal trainer, doctor, etc. I’m just like you. I’m not better than you, and please don’t misinterpret this article by thinking that. I’ve struggled many times before in the past trying to get in shape, and I know it’s not easy. And that’s what I hope to help you with right now…
You see, if you want to finally break through that annoying bubble of procrastination, a lack of willpower, and/or very little motivation, you have to take control of YOU. What do I mean by that?
Well, with the few things you are going to have to do in order to transform your body (diet, exercise, drinking more water, getting more sleep), there will certainly come a time where you’re going to hit a point where you’ll feel like quitting or “giving in” to something you shouldn’t be.
That’s EXACTLY what you want to have happen! Pretty confusing eh? Well, let me explain…
It’s a good thing if you feel like quitting or giving in to something because it’s at that exact moment, IF you persevere through this feeling that you’ll develop incredible motivation!
On the last few minutes of your exercise and feel like quitting? KEEP GOING! Feel like having a cheeseburger for lunch? AVOID THE TEMPTATION! Fight through this weakness and you’ll develop inner strength like you’ve never felt before. This is why it’s not necessarily a bad thing if you get those craving urges, if you get the temptation to quit during an exercise routine, if you don’t feel like exercising, etc. It’s because once you get the urge to give in to your weaknesses, and then you break through them, you’ll develop crazy willpower! Trust me on this, try it out the next time you get the feeling to give in to something you shouldn’t be, and watch how you’ll feel later!
Now I’m not saying that you are going to develop insane motivation and willpower overnight. It took me a little while of consistently breaking through temptations and weaknesses before I got to the point where it wasn’t as difficult for me to say no to a handful of cookies or to keep pushing myself to complete my workouts for example. The key is to NEVER give in and stay consistent with this. After some time, you’ll find it easier to say no to bad foods and/or you’ll find it more easier for you to push yourself with your workouts, etc.
Another thing to remember too is to make sure you are doing things that will have you more willing to stay committed. Things such as an easy diet program that is extremely effective and is not intrusive on your daily life (I highly recommend this one HERE). For me, finding an easy diet program to follow and avoiding complicated and restrictive diets made a tremendous difference for me to stick with my goals.
