Older post but there is some faces I haven’t seen in a while who I hope read this.
We’ve all experienced “IT”. Whether you’ve been training here at CFW or CFB for a few years, months, or even weeks. What is this “it” I am talking about? I will tell you. This “it” is the slump we get into when we start to fall off track with our training . A few days off will easily turn into a week then two weeks and so forth. Next thing you know you are so deep in “it” you’re not sure if you can climb your way out. Not only does this slump effect your training but also your diet, sleep patterns, mood, and your daily life in general. It is very easy to fall off track and stay off track. The domino effect of “it” can continue on and on unless YOU decide to take the initiative and do something. Taking the initiative will be the hardest part. You have to look at yourself in the mirror, dig deep, and find that motivation that you once had. It’s still there in you, you just have to dig it up again. Sometimes in life we have to hit rock bottom so we can have something to push off of to get back up again. Take control of your training and your life. Get back in here 3 to 4 days a week. Throw away all the junk food, light your hair on fire, just do something.
Remember, it’s the first step that’s the hardest. We’re here to get you through the rest.
Its safe to assume that everyone is here to look good naked. I have heard on occasion that health is the reason but shorlty after we get back to ” …and I want to look good.” There is nothing wrong with that statement. In fact if that is what motivates you then everything else will fall into place. The question is, What are you willing to sacrifice to get there?
There is a price to pay for everything. Some of us have dug ourselves a big hole. Now we must pay the price for years of abuse and start digging. It sucks, I have been there. One thing that helps me is to find some motivation to keep pushing not only in the weight room but outside as well. When I hear “I cant eat healthy” I call bullshit. You do not want to.You all walk in here and challenge yourself with these workouts and you all complete them. Now how about you challenge yourself to throw away the junk food in the house.Challenge yourself to walk into a candy store and walk out without making a purchase. That is some will power my friends.
To look good and be fit there is a cost. What are you willing to pay? Can you give up certain foods in order to obtain your goals? If not, then why are you here.? The blood, sweat and tears don’t amount to much if there is no pay off. What ever you have to do to motivate yourself…DO IT. We are two and a half months into the new year, how are you holding up? This game is not hard but the rules must be learned.
