I was reminded by one of the members of my fitness group on facebook today of the importance of really digging deep. Digging deep is I think something we tend to shy away from, we usually want the most benefit from the least amount of work, the most bang for our buck, and to a degree the easy way out.
When it comes to fitness, the easy way out is always wrong. You want to go with the hard things, the things that challenge you, that bring you to your knees gasping knowing that you’ve given it all you’ve got.
I’ll admit there’s a lot of times when I don’t reach this point. I know when I leave the gym if I’ve given it all I’ve got. There is nothing like that feeling of leaving it all out there.
So if you are struggling with really digging deep, find some new motivation. Think about your why when it comes to working out. Why do you want to get fit? A common answer is “to look good” or “to better my health”, those are good, now keeping asking why. “Why do I want to look good.” Keep asking why until you can’t ask why anymore.
Write down your reasons, post them on your mirror. Use this motivation to push yourself to dig deep.
You’ve got this.
