To get through an aggressive workout mode, sometimes it’s best to see it as a battle. War. War against excuses, self doubt, and pain. War against the naysayers, yes, and even a war against the weather. This winter might be a heavy snow season, and getting to and from the gym will be such a great epic EPIC tempting excuse.
When you see the snow, so…. Oh HELL NO.
And march right to the gym.
If you’re relatively close to your gym, walk there. Use the snow for the added resistance. What do you think sand does at the beach? Same principle. USE IT. You’ll burn fat calories like a boss.
If you’re not close to your gym, then crap, go for a walk!! One hour walk, trudge through that white stuff!
There are times when people around you drive you absolutely crazy with their winter moaning, …and even rage. Use it. It’s their winter blues, and your fuel. Blast out weights, use the snow for some cardio resistance, and see your progress grow through leaps and bounds during the season when everyone else is packing on the inches on their belt.
Every time you say to yourself, “maybe not today, the snow is heavy”, that’s when you immediately say, “Just go. Go for it”. Go to the gym. Don’t lose the war over some little snow flakes.
