" The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying." Oh how I love this.
I remember walking into a gym 3 years ago and being so intimidated by all the fit people I saw. The girls with the abs, perky butts, muscular legs and insane confidence. I also remember being so embarrassed of my " average " and " mediocre " physique. I looked at these girls in awe, like they weren't human and thought to myself, " hold on one second, they must've been just like me not so long ago.." One day turned into a week then that week turned into a month, month turned into a year, so on and so forth. I didn't understand it then but now I do. It's never ending work.
Please remember that it takes time, a disgusting work ethic, consistency, pain, dedication and a no quitting attitude to really transform. Motivation is BS. It comes and goes and there are days I REALLY have 0 motivation but it's work ethic that gets me to show up.
Don't look at the girl with the firm round perky butt and think with 4 weeks of glute work you'll achieve that look or the girl with the defined shoulders and think you'll achieve it with 2 months of an unstructured programme or taking tips from here or there. Be realistic with how long change really takes. To try is to give it your all. Giving it your all will get you the results you want.
Trying means really trying. Ask yourself am I REALLY trying to make the changes I want or am I KIND OF trying?
The girl you're in awe of in the gym has been giving it her all, didn't care how long it took, didn't quit, wasn't scared to fail and always showed up. No matter how shit she felt.
You can be that girl.. #workit - 4 months ago
