If you read this blog since a long while ago, you’ll probably know I’ve/am dealing with some health issue in this last period of my life. Without going deep down in details with it, finding myself in first aid two times in three weeks was no fun and it’s something I rather prefer not to redo anytime soon. It felt very bad both times and those were the moments when I start seeing own weak my body is. I needed to take supplements twice a day for a while (and I still do sometimes) before my body re-established to its normality, but yet I wasn’t feeling strong at all and it really sucks when you don’t have complete control over your body.
I’ve never been a workout/gym/sport type of person. The only sport I do actually really enjoy is swimming which is something I’ll go ahead and do as soon as my trusted pool will be re-open in September, but one thing I wanted to do was to start working out regularly and dedicate at least an hour a day on five out of seven days a week to my body and nothing else. To one that has never ever exerciced in her life it is pretty tough at the beginning and there are days when I can’t be bothered and am not really in the mood, but I still try and get up from that chair and dedicate some time to a few simple exercices if I don’t really feel to push too hard that day. It can be annoying sometimes to realize I need to take a step back because my body is not used to it and it’s very weak and it can let itself go anytime really, but this is also an exercise to me to understand my body and when it’s time to do or not to do something.
To somebody working out can be all about weight loss and it is to me as well but not completely, because the main thing that comes with it to me is that my body really feels healthier day after day. I’m still working on building an effective routine that works fine to me and my body, but I can see me coming at that point day after day. I think if you can find a very important reason to workout like being and feeling healthier, it really makes the whole thing a lot easier and to me it really is the number one goal to achieve.
I want my body to feel stronger day after day and if that means I need to work hard every day in order to achieve my body’s health, well I’m totally on it. If you don’t feel motivated at all about working out or going to the gym, just simply try to deeply understand why your body need it and use it as major goal to achieve when you don’t really want to get up from that couch.
What is your motivational goal when it comes to working out?
