I'm finding the "motivation" question harder and harder to answer on here......
Why? Because I don't think of it as "needing motivation" anymore.
Eating healthier and working out has become a way of life for me now. It is a fundamental part of my day and regardless of what I am doing each day I look at when I can work out.
Do I still eat crap? Hell yeah I do! I'll have a beer, I'll eat chips, chocolate whatever I fancy if and when I want to. What is different now is that eating healthy is more of a lifestyle than eating crap
Was I always like this? Hell no!!!! Over the last 2 and a half years I've gradually improved my health and my eating habits.
So what changed?
You've actually given yourself a clue in your post... You give up... WHY????
Because you have psychologically programmed yourself to fail. I was EXACTLY the same. So I decided to sit down and REALLY understand my triggers. The things that lead to me failing. Some of them were as simple as changing my drive home from work so I wasn't passing the shop I bought beer in. Understanding the time of day I got most of my cravings and changing my routine at home. If someone didn't support me I made it perfectly clear they could shove their comments up their arse.
People get into a rut, that rut leads to eating shit & not working out. Change it..
If you just can't motivate yourself after doing EVERYTHING you can, GIVE UP!! Shocking comment to make?? I don't think so. I've come across far too many people in my life who blame others and make excuses for why they fail. If you are one of them, delete your Skimble app and move onto Minecraft or Hayday.
Many things aren't equal, but everyone gets the same 24 hours a day - 7 days a week. We make the time for what we TRULY want
I've been there.
Overweight, massively unhealthy, drinking too much alcohol, eating too much crap.... trying to get healthy again absolutely sucks balls!
It hurts like hell
You'll hate everyone and everything.
You'll want to quit, BUT, if you refuse to it'll become easier each week. You begin to enjoy the workout pain.
You'll be disgusted at what you used to eat and drink. THAT is when you know you've made it a lifestyle!
Some of us wanna be shredded and compete, some of us want to look better or be more attractive, some of us just don't want to die at an early age, and some of us want to make sure our kids don't end up the same way.
Whatever the reason, FFS make sure you know what it is and stick to it. The world has enough losers in it, don't be one of them. I was close to being one of them, and have clawed my way out.
F*** motivation!!! Give me dedication!!!
(I'm gonna eat some chicken & pasta!!)
"move into minecraft" hahahaha.
I've been on the verge of commenting "just give up" to some people who are always asking for motivation on here... They're bound to fail unless they change drastically. Simple as that. I also think most of them really do know that some motivating comment isn't gonna be enough to help them in long run.
Totally agree dude. I know the feeling of staying strong.
Nicely put Scotty, couldn't of said it better myself! It frustrates me being on here when I am actually looking for help and need that advice, it's truly hard to find on here! Our bodies are all different and what works for someone might not work for me, you get to know your body but sometimes it would be good to get some advice that you just might not be thinking about!
It would be nice to have a forum for people who are serious! That's all I have to say! LOL
I do have to say though that I really don't appreciate the bullyish tendencies that sometimes surface in the forums. I'm not pointing out anyone in particular, we all have to think about how we talk to other people. If you feel omg not yet another one asking for motivation, scroll past it. Let someone else answer it. I know it's difficult when you just want to grab people and shake them and shout BUT WHY DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND but keep in mind that it might throw someone off because they don't feel welcome or stupid or whatever. You don't want that on your conscience, do you.
I would like to say... I absolutely loved this post! I totally understand each and every word...i couldn't have said it better myself or agree more.
Bum bum bum bump
