If you’re in the “Fitness Over Fifty” crown, I have a question for you…..
Why do you workout? Why do you want to get fit?
Anyone that has worked out for any period of time runs into this question in their mind at least once. Some people go through this every time they put on their workout clothes,
(ESPECIALLY if they are over 50 years old!)
Of course, the usual answers come to mind, the classic answers if you will:
-To lose weight.
-To be healthy.
-To look good in that swimsuit.
These answers are great, but are they actually true?
Well, of course they are true, but I’m talking about something bigger, something deeper than those answers. Because, really, are those answers enough to keep you working out? Keep you eating healthy?
For some of you, the answer is a simple “Yes, those answers are enough.” But for a lot of people, not so much.
Why do I say this? I’ll answer that by giving you a scenario. And, just to let you know, people that have been going to the gym for a while will nod their head in agreement with this one.
How many people get a gym membership because they “want to get in shape”? They are all gun-ho about going to the gym and they are going 5 days a week. After a couple of weeks, they may skip a couple of days, then their 5 days a week goes to 3 days a week. Then life happens and they have to skip a week, which turns into 2 weeks and so on. That “go get ’em” attitude they had a few weeks earlier has left them. That “want to get in shape” feeling is still there, but just no longer the driving force.
This happens more often than not. Believe me, I’ve seen it dozens of times.
So, then what is it? What is it that keeps a person going back to the gym? What is it that keeps a person on the right track with their eating habits? If what I described above is you, really think about it? If you could give yourself a real deep down, honest answer, what would it be?
I would love to sit here and tell you what that answer would be, but each individual has to answer that for themselves. If you are currently working out twice a week, what will it take to do it 3 or 4 times a week? If you need to lose weight, why haven’t you? If you need to get healthy and eat right, why aren’t you?
It’s easy to just do nothing. It’s easy to stop at that fast food joint and pick up drive thru. It’s easy to say you don’t have enough time.
But if you’re reading this, you already have something inside of you that WANTS to be healthy, that WANTS to get in shape, that WANTS to look good in that swimsuit. You can do it, I know you can.
It you don’t know why you want to do it, don’t worry about it. If you start doing the “how”, the “why” will eventually come out, because it’s already there. The key is, you have to be consistent and keep going.
Hope this made sense. Now, to help you take action and get yourself moving, I’ve put together an at home workout program. Go HERE to find out more! Looking forward to having you along for the ride!
