The truth is it is hard work and requires so much more effort than you can comprehend.I am usually an ‘ill just do it when I have time’ kinda gal. It takes years of failing, making excuses, half arsing it and poor time management and it’s easier to fall into that mental trap of allowing yourself to do that than to actually put in the work. I do go through stages of motivation and being consistent and stages of not being bothered at all, but I also do think that’s more normal than never falling off track. Changing the way I perceive training has been a real eye opener for me and incorporating injury prevention, cardiovascular fitness and performance into my exercise has had a really positive effect on how I view my body and how well it performs, not just how well it looks. Sometimes i think about the fact that it took me so long to give it my best efforts and where might I be if I hadn’t been so lazy but we are doing gooooood now and I’m so happy I am finally in a stable mental and physical routine and can say I genuinely feel the best I’ve ever felt.
