GET MOTIVATED TO GET IN SHAPE!




Get Motivated to Get in Shape!


"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy."  
~Norman Vincent Pearle 



Achieving fitness success doesn’t happen overnight.  It takes desire, motivation and commitment to attain your fitness goals and dreams.  Though the thoughts of getting in shape may seem overwhelming, it is attainable!


You may try to rationalize why you just can’t find the time to take care of you.  There are plenty of excuses of why millions of Americans are overweight and even obese...   Living a fit lifestyle doesn’t happen overnight it takes motivation, dedication and determination to achieve your fit physique.  



Unfortunately too many people lack the motivation needed to commit to starting or staying on track day after day.  It begins with your habitual thoughts and feelings.  Having negative self-talk will hinder your efforts to get in shape.  Having a positive mental attitude will greatly assist you as you set forth to living a healthier lifestyle.


LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY
It all begins with loving yourself unconditionally as you are now.  Let go of negative feelings you may have about your body or past mistakes, replace them with thoughts of gratitude and love for all that you are.  Doing so will shift brain waves to create a higher frequencies of thought processes which will support your ambition to improve your quality of life. 


The more you love the more people will love you.  Release the tendency to criticise and to hold judgement, it only comes back to hurt you... So fill your heart with love, give love to everyone you meet by sharing a friendly smile or by giving encouragement and expressing gratitude to those you love. 


EMBRACE LIVING A LIVFIT LIFESTYLE


Living a healthy way of life is highly rewarding, you will have more success and happiness in all areas of your life.  You will feel vibrant, healthier and empowered.  Living a fit life also is considered the fountain of youth.  You can turn back the clock on your ‘real age’ by incorporating exercise and proper nutrition daily.
By creating your thoughts on purpose you will begin to be the master of your mind.   By being in control of your thoughts you can choose your thoughts on purpose to assist you in creating your life and body of your dreams. 


"Starting" a healthier lifestyleis half the battle, the first step may be the hardest steps to take, but before you know it you'll be skipping along and then running!  You can begin slowly by walking briskly for 20 minutes a day or jogging on a treadmill for 15 minutes, within time you will be able to exercise longer than you did the week before and before long you will begin to see results when you look in the mirror which will motivate you even more to accomplish your fitness dreams.


5 Motivational Tips to Achieve Fitness Success


1. Love Yourself Unconditionally ~ Think & speak positively to yourself and of others.  Listen to your higher self, follow your heart, and believe in you!  By loving you unconditionally you will create a powerful environment for your mind, body & spirit to become one, which will enable you to create the body of your dreams with less effort.  Your body is a manifestation of how you feel about yourself and the world around you.  So think loving thoughts about you!

2.  Set Goals ~
Write down short term goals in the present tense, as though you have already accomplished them, i.e. “I am 10 lbs lighter.” “I wake up each morning and exercise.” “I crave healthy whole foods each day.”  Read them daily with feeling, your emotions and feelings will aid in accomplishing your goals and dreams by attracting  into your life that which is needed to succeed.

3. Visualize Your Success ~
Visualize daily of exactly how you want to be, use all 5 senses. Post a photo of your dream body. Have thankfulness throughout the day for your miraculous body & for all the blessings in your life.  Think success!

4. Be Prepared ~
Plan your meals & workout routines the night before, and then follow through.  If you fail to plan you plan to fail.  Visualize yourself each night of what exercises you will do in the morning and how you will eat the following day.  Your thoughts are seeds to your upcoming experiences.  Go grocery shopping each Saturday so you will be prepared to have your meals on hand when needed. 

5. Log Your Success ~ Keep a gratitude, diet & workout journal.  Being accountable to "you" is highly motivating and will keep you on track with your fitness goals.  By writing down each evening  in a gratitude journal that which you were thankful for that day will help you shift your way of thinking to become more optimistic naturally.  Also, by expressing your thankfulness for your blessings you will soon have more to be thankful for.


If you do the above faithfully you will achieve your fitness dreams as you stay focused and motivated to achieve your goals!  Believe in all that you are and have fun as you continue to strive to live a healthier & happier way of life.
