“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”-Zig Ziglar
It is no secret that I am lazy. Seriously when it comes to working out I just don’t like the idea of getting up to actually go do it. Kind of ironic since I have been an athlete since the age of eight and I am a certified personal trainer.
The hardest part about working out for sure is getting to your destination. Having to wake up, put on clothes, and make your way to the gym, park or where ever is usually the biggest hurdle I have to jump.
I have this love hate relationship with fitness where as though I can’t seem to stay away from it too long. No matter how many times I get hurt or fall back I always seem to find a way to stay involved with it.
My advice to anyone who is thinking of getting back in shape or wanting to start a new fitness journey, DO it! It’s so rewarding and painfully beautiful once you get past your blockades.
Start small if you must by talking a walk around the block, walking up and down your stairs, standing up and sitting down on your couch or unpacking and repacking your kitchen cabinets.
All of these are forms of working out that you wouldn’t think were a big deal until you start to do them enough. Surround yourself with people who want to help you begin or continue the process and set a goal for yourself.
It doesn’t need to be a big goal but something simple to get you started and once you reach that goal you can move on to another. Your biggest support and biggest critic is you. Choice which one you’d rather see more often and get to work.
