Big Jugs

Motivate or Stagnate


Life is not always easy as I am sure you will agree,  we are all creatures of habit so making change does not come easy to most  people, when you can change your way of thinking then you can change the way you choose to live your life.

Exercise and health is a lifestyle choice,  I practice what I preach and can tell you it's not as easy as one may think.
Social pressure to eat that peace of rubbish your friends are wolfing down or to down ten pints on the weekend is a common battle most people can relate to, you justify it because after all you do not want to be the boring one in the group or the fitness fascist.


So you bend and buckle and indulge in a few pints now and again, big deal right? Wrong

those 10 pints you had on the weekend are more than the average person will burn off in a week of gym work outs, and where are those calories coming from, yep its fats best friend sugar, and beer contains a boat load of it.



If your goal is to lose weight or you want to show of your finely toned abs, then small choices make a huge difference, a few beers can be the difference of losing 2lbs a week or gaining the same amount while creating a beautiful barrel to impress your friends with.


That said drinking alcohol in moderation can provide some health benefits so enjoy in moderation.

Each and everyone is different, please stop comparing yourself to others, ask yourself what do I want and how can I get it.

Am I happy with my health, could I be fitter, stronger, faster lose weight or gain weight.

Whatever the answer you first have to set a want in order to fulfil a need, for example if you want to run a marathon then you can train for it but you have no real need as you goals are non specific.

However if you want to achieve a specific time or goal then you have a need, the need to set aside the time for intelligent training, nutrition, rest and recovery to achieve a specific task.

The same applies to any measurable goal if it is measurable then you can set aside time to plan a programme in order to best improve your performance, and make the best use of your time and resources.

If you are not sure where to start, or even how, ask someone for help, everybody started somewhere and nobody was born an expert.

Don't be mislead by pressures of those who feel you cannot achieve something simply because they do not share your vision or ambition, nobody can stop you from succeeding unless you allow yourself to be stopped, drive comes from within, will comes from yourself belief and passion comes from the enthusiasm you bring, everything else is just a bonus.

Good luck achieving your goals GM-Fitness
