Starting a fitness program? Have you decided when your new nutrition approach should be implemented? I'm sure you or someone you know has been guilty of this. At some point you've heard or uttered the phrase “I plan to start working out when…”. Why must you wait? Will the time ever really be right for you to start that weight training program? Just like you should never let giving up be an option, you should never be indecisive about starting your program.
Putting off your workouts because of illness or injury is one thing, but waiting until the time is right is just wrong. If you're not ready to start now, what makes you think you will be ready to start later? What if I told you that you should just get started? Would you believe me? Remember, there are major benefits to your metabolism.
That's right. I said just get started. Once you get started the habit building can begin. You will see your results faster which will keep you on track. It is just top easy to continually push off the start of a fitness program. Weight training requires consistency and you will never achieve that if you don't get started. The first step is to get into the gym and do your first workout.
I speak from experience. I have, at times, realized that I needed to make changes on a Wednesday, but waited until Sunday to implement them. That never makes me feel right. The times that I see the need for change and then get started that day are the times I do the best work and give the best effort. There is just something about not procrastinating that gets me pumped up!
You can also create accountability through others. I personally maintain an accountability blog. This keeps me focused and I tend to get started on changes much faster.
What are you waiting for? Do your planning and then get started on that plan right away. Step up to the plate today! Do not delay any longer. You will be glad you got started.
