When it comes to maintaining a regular exercise regimen, there are two most important things that you need to distinguish, and that is whether you are motivated and whether you are committed.
Motivation is described as “a reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way”
In order to remain constantly motivated, one must be able to pin point why they are starting that exercise regimen. Reasons could be that you want to reach your goal weight; your goal fitness level; you want to be able to fit into your wedding dress better or as it is for me, summer is just around the corner and I want to be able to hit the beach without feeling too conscious of my tummy and thighs! Motivation is the crucial element in setting and attaining goals.
Commitment is described as “the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc”
It is what transforms the goal into reality. Its is the words that speak boldly of your intentions, and the actions that speak louder than the words. For me this means making time when there is none and it is the power to change the face of things.
Out of the two, I lack commitment, which might explain why I have had quite a number of failed attempts at my exercise goals and failing to strictly follow a simple regimen. However, with my new found insight I am motivated to turn this around 😉
My goal for the next three months is to exercise at least three times a week for any amount of time. I will update you on whether I managed to commit to my goal or not. I have this thing of feeling very motivated for about a week (maximum) then slowly I lose that motivation and stop.I normally fins my self saying things like, “instead of exercising, I could be doing…”. So this needs to stop, I should be more commited and make time where there is none and turn my goals into reality!
