You might heard of the tagline like a gazillion of times right. I got a text from a friend of mine two days back asking me how did I kept myself motivated to go for out for a workout or exercise. She finds it hard to motivate herself and I believe most of you guys out there have the same trouble too.
How do keep myself motivated? Well for me there’s a story that lies behind the whole of my weight loss success .I think I post it in my blog before but going down the memory lane is something that I wouldn’t want to do right now…Ok to cut the story short, I use to be fat, hate the way I look like and hated the fact that I sweat like mad all the time. Aside than that, I am a happy kid =) I really was. There was this guy who really I liked back then always called me montel and after 3 months that I shredded almost 10 kilos, for the first time ever, he called me by my name. A total boost to your self-esteem I might say =) But that's not the point, I mean yeah partly, I take that as a motivation, but later in life you just realize that you just want to stay healthy. I don’t want to be the unhealthy person that I once was. Well looking good is an added bonus right. If you want to change the way you look, look for an inspiration la, go look out for a poster pin up healthy looking celebs, and not the supper skinny model type. They look plain weird to me..isk..As for me I always googled for videos of Korean artist for motivation and I like dancing, I look out for the video to learn some dance routine as well..hahahaha..
Look! It’s ok not to be ok as Jessie J had sang it, but not to the point that you start into entering the wallowing into self pity stage. Your body is something that you can change and the first step is to always take charge. If there is one thing about workout that I find exhilarating, it is to feel the sweat dripped down your face. God it makes me feel good. Yerp, that’s my opium. I get high and happy. If I don’t’ run, I’ll walk, if I don’t walk I do jumping jacks in the room or put on loud music and dance away, I’d swim and even hike if I have the time and friends. Well they say exercise is only something that’ll speed up your weight loss, what is really important if for you to control your food intake. If you have a dormant kind of lifestyle, why not start by watching what you eat. You are what you eat. I might not be the right person to tell you what to do and how to eat right as I am no expert. I am loving who I am today, I am not fat and am not thin either, but I always know that my body is something that I can change. I am struggling here myself in maintaining the way I look as well. Everyone does. I have always tell myself if I don’t like the way our body look like, take charge and do something to change it.
Just start doing something about it. They say the hardest step is always the first step out of the door. Well tell to your inner bitch that’s stopping you to go to hell. How’s that for a change. They say the biggest fight that you’ll have is the fight that you have with your inner self. But whatever it is don’t push or exert yourself too much. There are limits ok. So yeah, take care and take care of your food intake as well. Remember, looking good is number two, to be healthy is number ONE!!~
