Help! I want to give up.



Help! I want to give up.

We’ve all been there. It’s a struggle to get out of bed. To pull on our workout gear. To get to the fitness class. To make conversation. To partake without wanting to quit. 

And some days we don’t even get as far as pulling on our sports bra. It’s just the way it is.

But what can we do when we feel like giving up? How do we motivate ourselves to pull through, and keep going?

Pain is temporary

You can form a habit in a relatively short period of time. 30 days to be precise. Your workout will take an hour – in the grand scheme of things, that’s nothing. You might not want to go. You may be worried about failure. But the only failure that’s a certainty is that of things you didn’t even attempt. 

Take this moment of pain, and uncertainty with a pinch of salt. Let the endorphins flow, and give your body and your mind a chance at peace and strength

Don’t go to sleep with regret

Have you ever regretted a workout you did? At the time it hurts. You’re sore, tired, and can’t think of anything more enticing than a cold beer and your warm bed. But there is never regret at the exercise you’ve allowed yourself to smash. 

If it was easy, it may not seem like it was worth doing. Like it would really help us, and make us better. We want toned arms, a flat stomach, and a peachy bum, but we won’t ever get there if we quit before we’ve even started. 

You don’t get the final results without the grind that comes with it. 

A balancing act

Every day we make choices. We may have limited time, and we prioritise, without putting much thought into it. Every single day. 

Right now you don’t feel motivated enough to perform your workout. But by flicking the switch in your head, and spending this moment in a way that’ll make you proud, rather than frustrated or annoyed at yourself, you’ve levelled out the balance beam, and given yourself a reason to be filled with pride, 

You’ve got this! As always, stay fit and healthy.
