Week Three Weigh In

I’ve decided to write a post each Wednesday as that day is the 12WBT weigh in day.  That way I can update you all on how the 12WBT is going; if I have faced any challenges along the way and also to celebrate any successes.  You can also check me out on instagram [ @vixxtaa ] and see my progress there too!

Something New!

2015 so far!

Happy New Year to you all!  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable festive season and as we move into another brand new year, I wish you all the best.  If last year wasn’t your finest moment, then wipe that slate clean and jump back on that wagon!  If 2014 was a good one then keep that momentum flowing into the new year and make it even BETTER!

Living for the moment.

As we approach the end of 2014 I can say that this year, like each year, has disappeared more quickly than the last.  At this time of year we have the opportunity to look back on what was and think about what is to come.  But most importantly, it’s a time when most people have a few minutes to just breathe.  And enjoy NOW.  Life is so busy most of the year, that I urge you to take a step back, and if you have 4 minutes, I beg you, please watch this.  That is all.

Until next time!

What are you waiting for? Now is the perfect time!

Whilst watching a lecture on motivation for uni, I came across this video which I really liked.  Enjoy 🙂

And on a side note, yesterday was my 2 year anniversary with WordPress.  I can’t believe it’s been two years since I decided to start blogging.  For those that have stuck with me – thank you!

M.O.T.I.V.A.T.I.O.N

Can you relate to any of these?

Impatience – you analyse a plan according to how it’s “supposed” to work, and often conclude too soon that it’s not working for you.

Analysis Paralysis – you keep adding additional workouts and customizations to your program, and you end up exhausted, discouraged and perhaps injured.

Extremism – you throw yourself into unsustainable nutritional or supplement schemes that are beyond your budget or just not a good fit with your lifestyle and/or abilities.

Perfectionism – you’re prone to skipping workouts when everything isn’t “just right”.  Maybe you forgot your pre-workout, your music or a piece of gear for instance.  Same for nutrition – if everything isn’t perfect you take it as an excuse to eat junk.

Ambition – you’re unrealistic in your aspirations. You set goals that are too lofty or extreme for your abilities, age or the amount of time you have. Then you beat yourself up when you can’t achieve them.

If you can, then you’re not alone!  These are hurdles which the personality type “the thinker” has to overcome.  [Check out my previous post here]  And these hurdles are often the reason behind our loss of motivation…..

Earlier this week I posed a question on my Facebook page – Was there anything in particular my followers/readers would like to hear about?  It was suggested I write a post about motivation when getting back into fitness after a break.  What a perfect suggestion!  I’m hoping by giving others advise that it will in turn motivate me too 🙂

Progression

Hi all!  Just a short post tonight…

This morning at GRIT there was a new girl next to me.  She didn’t put much weight on her bar; and did stop a few times along the way but I was still impressed with the effort she put in.  I must admit that I compared myself to where she was and thought back to when I first tried out GRIT.  I still have to slow down a bit sometimes or miss a rep; although today I didn’t have to stop and I was able to do more reps than I normally would.  I also increased the weight I use on my free weight for a bit more of a challenge.

When I think back to my first GRIT class I can see how far I have come.  My fitness and strength have improved dramatically and although it never gets easier; I left the class with a smile knowing that I am progressing each and every session.

I hope that the new girl continues to train so that she too, can look back in 6 months time and see how far she has come.

It doesn’t get easier – you just get stronger.
