Often, when people decide to start exercising, they vow to ‘get fit’ and ‘tone up’ and their initial motivation is weight loss and aesthetic goals. Starting each day by staring at a number on the scales or pinching the skin around your waist is both tedious and uninspiring. Personally, I focus more on how exercising makes me feel. As a PT and a trainer, I always want people to leave my class feeling energised and happy. The post sweat feel good factor is good for both your body and mind.
If you’ve been lacking in motivation lately, and you keep starting over again, then maybe try focusing on how you feel instead of how you look.
What are you waiting for? dust of that fit kit and get moving! If you switch your focus and find a new reason to exercise, you’ll probably see the positive effects on your body too. Please don’t ever compare your body to anyone else’s, we all have different shapes, sizes and body types. Do something that makes you feel good and remember, exercising is about more than just burning calories.
