Just One Word……Discipline

We hear quite a bit about motivation, but no so much about discipline.
Discipline.  
Heck, a lot of websites and programs have "Motivational Monday". Have you ever heard of it?  

BUT, the other side of that coin is discipline.  When I say discipline, I'm talking "consistant discipline".  

You can have all the motivation in the world, but if you don't have discipline to DO SOMETHING, all the motivation in the world won't get your ass off the couch!  

Right away, people think to be disciplined, you need to go to the gym 2 hours every day and stuff like that there.  

But, remember what TFS is all about….getting you to look better AND feel better than your current state.  So, when I talk about discipline, I'm coming from a bit of a different perspective.  

Let's stay in the workout realm for just a bit, ok?  

So, in order to be disciplined, one would think they should go to

My Big “A-ha” Moment!

When I turned 40 years old, I still had the mindset, or I’ve never thought of myself as something different, as when I was 25 years old, especially at the gym.

Then, when I hit the 45 year old mark, something struck me.  I no longer wanted to spend 2+ hours a day at the gym.  I didn’t have time every day to “hang” with my workout buddies.  I didn’t want to do the same things I did when I was 25 years old.

WinkThat’s when it really hit me, if I wasn’t in the same place, life wise, now as I was when I was 25, why in the world would I want to do the same “stuff” I did when I was 25? 

Now, let me ask you: If you’re working out, are you doing the same workouts as 20 years ago?  Are you eating the same foods?  Heck, maybe you’re on some sort of medication from the doctor.   Maybe you’re not doing ANY kind of workout now.

The whole point is, your life has changed quite a bit in the last 25 years.  If just about every other part of your life has changed, do you think that maybe…..just maybe…..your health and fitness habits have changed as well?

If you haven’t had the “aha” moment yet, you will soon.  And when you do, you’ll understand EXACTLY what I’m talking about.

Matter of fact, I actually put together a free video course outlining a few things about getting older and all this health and fitness stuff.   Our mindset and attitude towards health and fitness may be completely different now, and I’m here to help walk you through it.

Heck, maybe you’ve never thought about living a fitter and healthier lifestyle, but you should.  Age has a way of creeping up on us and, if we’re not prepared for it, the next thing you know you’ll 40lbs over weight, you won’t have the energy you once did and don’t know what to do about it.

Let me help you with that.  Go to www.TopFitnessStrategies.com/fit , watch the video and let’s do it together!    

It’s Time For An Attitude Adjustment!

For all you folks over 45 years old, this ain't high school anymore.  I'm talking about the health and fitness world my friend.

What I mean is, when I talk to people over 45 years old and ask them about working out and being fit and healthy, they almost always regurgitate stuff they did in high school.  They talk about the workouts they did in high school and how "that's the way to do it" type of stuff.   When the conversation moves forward, especially if they were high school football players, they know all about working out and being healthy.  BUT, they NEVER talk about the "now".  They hardly ever discuss what type of workouts they are doing now.  Do you know why?  Because they don't know how to do it now!

Let's be honest here, high school was a LONG time ago.  Just about everything in your life has changed, right?  Do you live in the same place?  Are you dating (married) to the same person?  Do you have kids/grandkids now?  How about work?  Are you working in the same place you did in high school?   Chances are, the answers to these questions are "no".  So, if everything has changed, why do you think you should work out the same way you did back then?

I'll tell you why, because you don't know!  "But Andrew, I know how, I did it before."  You're right, you did workout before.  You also used to work at a fast food joint.  You also used to go on dates.  You also used to not have kids.  Are you getting this?  Are you picking up what I'm throwing down?

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm saying that LIFE HAPPENED.  I'm saying things are NOT the same in your life, so quit treating your body like it hasn't changed, because it has.  Don't believe me?  Look at your high school picture then look in the mirror, is it the same?   Nuff said.

Oh sure, you macho guys are poo-poo this off, but that's ok.  Chances are, you wouldn't be following me anyway, which is fine.   I know I sometime tick people off, but who doesn't?

I'm also sure that some of you macho guys think I'm some sort of quack and don't know what I'm talking about, which is fine.  It's none of my business what you think of me, and I get that and I'm fine with it.

BUT, for those who are still reading this and saying, "you know what Andrew, this is making sense. I get what you're saying,"  we are on the same page, and that's awesome!

If this is making sense to you, then maybe something else will as well.  I put together a little video series for the people over 45 years old who want to live a fit and healthy lifestyle.   If you fall in this category, I encourage you to watch this quick introductory video HERE.
