Americans are addicted to fatty foods, sedentary lifestyles, and blissful fitness ignorance
Chino Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) March 11, 2015
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, especially when transitioning out of an unhealthy way of life, requires massive amounts of motivation. Americans are addicted to fatty foods, sedentary lifestyles, and blissful fitness ignorance— overcoming these habits is difficult.
But Fit Body Boot Camp is working diligently to make a change in the lives of those who live with these all-too-common lifestyle choices.
A recent article from their website offers three helpful tips, and a bit of encouragement, designed to help anyone stay motivated to change his or her life for the better.
The article, “So You’ve Lost Your Motivation,” posted on FitBodyBootCamp.com, explains a bit about the most common reasons for losing motivation and provides three helpful tips for combatting those issues.
The piece begins by discussing the excitement that usually accompanies the very beginning of a new fitness journey and then continues to explain what usually destroys that motivation:
“When you get started you’re full of motivation. Everything is new. Everything is still exciting. You’re ready to never eat a cheeseburger again, you’ve vowed to do 300 push-ups every day, and you think you’ll be coming to Boot Camp 12 times a week for the rest of your life.
“But three weeks in? Forget it. You haven’t been to Boot Camp in three days, you’ve had a fried-chicken-burrito burger for your last four meals, and whenever some even mentions the word ‘workout,’ you die a little inside.
“The magic is gone. The mystery is over and you’ve just realized that if you want to tone up your butt you’re literally going to have to work your butt off.”
After explaining this common progression from driven to discouraged, Fit Body Boot Camp offers three tips to help individuals stay motivated with their fitness journeys and achieve the results they desire:
“#1 – Keep Your Eye on the Prize.
“Remember when you first started… what thought kept coming to your mind? For a lot of people it’s the sudden realization that they can actually do it. It’s the revelation that results could actually be theirs, a new body could be theirs, a new life is theirs for the taking. Did you ever feel that way?
“Remember how that felt because all those hopes and dreams aren’t just a possibility any more; you are closer to achieving those goals than you have ever been.
“#2 – Remember Why You Started
“There must have been a moment in your life when you finally said to yourself, ‘Enough already, it’s time to change.’
“You have to keep those wounds open and never let them heal. At least not before you’ve achieved your weight-loss goals.
“Now, don’t get us wrong, we don’t want you to have any negative feelings or damaging thoughts about yourself… But those painful emotions that made you get started, those are the same emotions that will keep you going.
“#3 – Use All of Your Resources
“We offer a total accountability package. That means, that when you start to feel like you aren’t going to make it to boot camp this week, you give us a call. It means that, when you’re struggling to eat the right kinds of foods and you need help with your grocery shopping, you give us a call. And, yes, it even means that when you’re about to rage quit and give up on your dreams of a healthy body, you give us a call.
“We are the trainers, we are the teachers, and we are the counselors who will keep you accountable, keep you motivated, and keep you on track to achieving what you’ve always thought was impossible.”
