Want to Quit Your Fitness Goals?

Let’s face it. If you’ve tried getting in shape before if you’ve tried to hit those fitness goals that you’ve been striving for time and again and keep hitting that brick wall, then there is a part of you that wants to throw in the towel. A part that wants to quit. I mean it shouldn’t be this hard to gain muscle, lose body fat, or get fit right?

But it is hard. If it was easy everyone would be doing it right? Sure that line sounds good in theory but when you are busting your butt day in and day out and not seeing results you want to strangle whoever came up with that saying.

I get it. I really do. Just because I live and breath fitness doesn’t mean I haven’t had those times, or even still have those days where I just want to throw my hands up and walk away.

I realized something though. Sure we can throw our hands up in dismay, tell ourselves that we gave it a shot, and go back to the old version of ourselves. But here’s the kicker. We want to change that old version of our self. We know what that old self looks like, know it’s not enough for us.

What is enough is changing things up. If it doesn’t work, that doesn’t mean it’s over and done, that means try something new, keep working, keep grinding,keep sweating, and keep busting butt until you start to re-create yourself into the version you want.
