When you set any goal the road to it is the journey that can be as much fun as seeing the final results. You’ll be amazed at how good it feels to realize the same exercise you could barely do just a few weeks ago is now simple and almost easy. You’ll also love the fact that what you once thought was impossible you know do with ease. Watching the changes is just part of the enjoyment when you set a fitness, or any other goal. It’s part of the enjoyment of the journey.
The road to fitness doesn’t have to be lonely, in fact it should be fun.
Working out with others may seem intimidating at first, but it really becomes addictive. You’ll make friends that will soon become your support team, just as you will become theirs. One thing is certain when you try to change, not everyone wants to see it happen. They aren’t being mean, they just hate anything that changes the status quo or worry that you’ll leave them behind. That’s one reason it’s important to workout with others and have friends striving toward the similar fitness goals. Not only do they make it more fun, they give you the feedback you need to achieve.
Achieving fitness goals gives you confidence while improving your overall health.
Lots of times people give the credit to their new found confidence to the good feeling they get when they see themselves in the mirror. That’s only part of the picture. When you achieve a goal that took hard work and perseverance, you change. You start to see other areas where you can achieve more and begin to believe you can do it. Setting and achieving a goal, no matter how small, gives you self esteem and that provides the belief you can do almost anything.
You’ll become a warrior.
Becoming a warrior doesn’t mean you’ll be vicious or attack and fight others. It means you’ll face any challenge with confidence and assurance, knowing that if you want to achieve it, you can. It’s taking your future in your own hands and not leaving it to chance or others. You’ll be facing each problem as a new opportunity, rather than worry and dismay.
Part of the reason for the many changes is the success you’ll experience, but exercising on a regular basis can also burn off the hormones of stress and trigger the release of those that make you feel good.
You’ll have more energy than you thought possible. That extra energy can carry you through even the toughest days, helping you get more done in less time.
You’ll be amazed at how much regular exercise and a healthy diet can clear your head and help you concentrate better. Studies show that regular exercise improves cognitive functioning.
You’ll be setting an example for others, especially your family, who often thought about tackling a difficult goal, but never had the courage to do it.
