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 the gym 4-6 times a week, right?  After all, it takes discipline to go the gym, doesn't it?

Well, that's not true in the TFS world.  You see, my philosophy is for you to move your body in some sorts on a daily basis or at least 4 times a week.  Now, when I say, "move your body",  I'm not talking a full blown workout (although that would be best, but not always necessary).  

But, what do I mean when I say, "move your body"?  Let me break it down just a wee bit for ya….

So, in order to be disciplined, and move your body every day, do this.  While watching TV, during the commercial breaks, do some push ups.  The next break, do some body weight squats.  The next break, do something else.  Do something where you have to move and put resistance on a certain muscle group.  Make sense?

I'm not saying do 200 pushups, I'm saying do what you can for the entire 30 second commercial. The next commercial break, do the body weight squats.  The next commercial break, do something else that requires you to move.  
(oh, and going the refridgerator doesn't count!  LOL)  

Sure, it isn't a full workout, but it's doing SOMETHING and that's better than doing nothing.  

Remember, the human body is designed to move, so GO AND MOVE IT!  

The discipline comes into play because you are now at least doing something on a daily basis.
