Is it really Spring Break already? Are you ready for “take my shirt off” weather, or wearing swimming suits in public?
I wonder how many of you, by now, have quit your New Year resolution for fitness and diet? Statistically, the answer to that question is around 90 percent.
I can give you all the fitness and diet tips needed to get in better shape, but my advice won’t make a difference unless you take a “that’s it” attitude.
What do I mean by “that’s’ it”? It means you’re fire-blasting mad and aggressively motivated.
You’re mad, because you’ve lacked self-discipline, and allowed yourself to become a lazy, grease-eating blob. Yep, I just got in your face and told the truth, unlike the people around you. I hope you’re so mad that you punched my picture. You already know your worst diet habits, so tell yourself “that’s it — no more.
I am not driving through a fast food restaurant to and from work anymore.”
You’re now motivated because you’ve come to accept your failures, realize you can’t go back in time and will start making positive changes. Right now is what you control; right now is attitude.
When you’re mad, you get an attitude. Take that same attitude toward getting in better shape and making proper diet choices. Go at it like a prize fighter, because we all have a fighter in us. Come out swinging and kick your lazy bad habit’s butt.
There’s no better self-reward than accomplishing goals in diet and exercise.
Like I’ve written before, it’s not about perfection, its’ progression.
Today’s step is one step closer to goals than yesterday.
Now, get real, try on your swimming suit or take your shirt off. Tell yourself “that’s it, I’m going into ‘beast mode’” and will have my body ready by summer time.
Look out everyone, there’s a new hottie in town.
