Life can be stressful. That's just a simple fact. It's how you deal with it that makes the difference. There are numerous reasons why people start out on a fitness program and there are also numerous reasons why people either quit or continue. We must remember the very simple balance of pain and pleasure. We strive to go more towards pleasure and move further away from pain. Sometimes we have to go through some pain in order to get more pleasure in the long term (such as a hard workout). But above all else, we must remember the key word "BALANCE". So many people use that word and they know we must be balanced in life. But many do not truly know what it means.
For starters, if you are starting a fitness program because you have been shamed or "guilted" into it, right off the bat you're not balanced. If you are starting a fitness program because you want to be more attractive to someone else, you're not balanced either. I know of course that this is a very common motivation, but think about it. How many people do you know of who achieved a goal of this nature and then once accomplished, quit all their fitness practices? I'm guessing quite a few! SO what is the right mindset for fitness? It may sound selfish to some who don't understand it, but IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU! That's right. That may not be an ideal way to live your life with regard to others. But for fitness, you've got to want to do it for yourself. That's the only way it's going to last and become a healthy part of your lifestyle. The first step is to love and accept yourself exactly as you are now. There is absolutely nothing that's accomplished by looking in the mirror and hating what you see. Once you've done that you can move forward with your fitness program and dietary changes because you have the right motivation. You already love and accept yourself, but it's now time to make yourself even better so you can get more enjoyment out of life. And not just for you, but for your family and loved ones.
Remember that when we say "It's all about you", that doesn't mean you're being selfish or self-centred. It means that you're taking better care of your body, your mind, and your spirit because you chose to do it for the right reasons.
