After 3 weeks of consistent posting, documenting, waking up really early, working hard, I hit the inevitable slump. I did continue to workout 6 times per week but my routine was thrown off and I could tell a difference in my mindset very quickly. One day I woke up at 4:30 then the next day at 5:00 then one day at 6:00…what am I doing? I’m slipping on my goals that’s what I’m doing! Week 4 was my slipping week and I will never get that week back. I didn’t post to Motivational Father, I exercised for shorter duration at random times, I woke up at varying times, and I didn’t post anything to hold myself accountable. I started to fall back into my original ways.
Alright slipping happens move forward forget about it. Week 5 I’m back on it, up on a Monday at 4:00 AM feeling great leg day because that’s always “fun”. I am about to be 33 years old and I do not have time to waste because the years keep flowing and I cannot afford to sit still and watch the world slip by. I have started noticing a difference in my body after eating well-ish, skipping unnecessary calories from sides and not snacking nearly as much, I still have my fun on the weekends but not like I used to. Being healthy is where all progress starts, if you can control yourself and your health then you can start to control other aspects of your life and that’s where I’m starting. If you feel good from exercise and eating right then you organically create motivation to do other things that you have been putting off for so long.
Start working out. Why? Because you owe it to yourself to be healthy. You owe it to your family and loved ones to be healthy and active for a long time. Confidence is contagious and you want others to catch it from you, you want to be a carrier for the confidence contagion. You are always looking for motivation through influencers on social media and saying “I wish I could do that…that person is so lucky…look at that person’s body…ugh I don’t have time to get to that level…I can’t do these things” well no matter what you think, if you think you can or you think you can’t then you’re right.
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you’re right” – Someone said this and it stuck with me
Have a great week and stay motivated to becoming the person you want to be, because if you don’t do it someone else is going to.
