What’s your reason?


Everyone should have a reason. I’m not just talking about a reason to exercise, but a reason why you go to work, a reason why you eat what you do, a reason why you feel unhappy with something, a reason why you look forward to doing something. A reason is just like having a “target”, it is the outcome of what you are currently doing.

These reasons, should be thought about, written down, and focused on, because at the end of the day they are the reason for living!!

You should write down your “reason(s)” and think about it/them everytime you are due to workout, everytime there is a chance you could “fall off the rails” with your diet, every time you lack motivation, every time something doesn’t go to plan at work, or when you come across one of those “I can’t be bothered days”.

Your reasons could be;

– I’m getting married in X amount of days and want to be in my best shape

– I’m on holiday in x weeks and want to have that beach body

– I want to be successful at my job, and earn X amount of £ or $ this year

– We have a history of diabetes or cardiovascular diseases in the family, and I don’t want to go the same route

– I don’t want to be obese any more

– I know someone who is less able than me, and if they can stay strong and get through everyday with a smile on their face, I’m damn sure I can

– I want to be able to run around with my kids when they’re X years old, not huffing and puffing and telling them “in a minute!”

– I don’t want high cholesterol

– I don’t want back pain anymore

– I don’t want to go back to how I used to live/looked

– I want to be an example to my children

– I want to “Livestrong” (thanks to Lance Armstrong! Another show of determination and effort)

Don’t wait for the next day. Decide what you want and action it. Only you can control your actions and your outcome.
