Fitness Is A Daily Battle

When it comes to success, your future and other matters, it’s advised to think as far into the future as possible. But with fitness things it’s slightly different. Fitness is a matter of a few simple habits and calculations, such as how many calories did I consume, how many did I burn?

Of course there’s more to fitness than that, but many would agree that this alone could take you very far. Burn more than you eat and you may just have a six pack and the appearance of ripped muscles. Eat more than you burn and you’re on your way to bulking.

So what does this suggest? It’s suggests that fitness should be a daily focus.

Getting Ripped

If you’re looking to get ripped, then these should be your daily aims:

  • Burn more calories than I consume.
  • Eat all carbs before 1pm.
  • Exercise once a day.
  • Only consume healthy protein and vegetables after 1pm.
  • Make sure to lightly exercise later at night to make sure no carbs or sugars are left in the system.
  • Stay away from alcohol and drink plenty of water.
  • Get plenty of sleep.

I don’t know what you think about this, but for me this is a very easy task list to follow. If you only had to tick all of these boxes each day, then all of us would be shredded. It’s complications that prevent us from succeeding.

Instead of viewing fitness as a 5 year journey, just view it as a battle that you have to win each day. By doing that you’ll soon clock up the days, see progress occur day by day and feel as though you’ve accomplished something with regularity.

Adding Bulk/Muscle

If your aim is to add muscle or bulk then your daily task list would look like this:

  • Consume more calories that you burn each day.
  • Increase protein intake.
  • Eat testosterone boosting foods each day.
  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Lift heavy weights except for your rest day.

This list seems even easier, again it seems hard to understand why people fail to reach their fitness goals. But like we said everything becomes daunting and over-complicated when you see it as a 5 year journey.

Don’t get me wrong, fitness is a long journey, but it doesn’t have to be viewed as that. You’re not going to get results overnight, but thinking like this encourages you to cheat due to lack of motivation. By taking on fitness each day with a fresh and motivated mind, you can win this brief 24 hour battle with your simple checklist at hand.

Conclusion

For anyone who does struggle with motivation, this could be your greatest asset. Simply write down basic and achievable daily targets and tick them off every day.

As Bruce Lee said, “I don’t fear the man who practices 1,000 kicks, I fear the man who practices 1 kick for 1,000 days”

It’s repetition that gets results. Tick those daily goals off every day for a year and watch the results occur. Win that 24 hour battle, get done what needs to be done, then win again tomorrow.

Habit is more powerful than motivation. The moment you realize this, the easier everything becomes. Motivation is easy to gain, it’s also easy to lose. When you’re at your most motivated, perhaps you just watched a fitness video or a film, you’re more likely to jump up and do something on the spur of the moment.

But it’s two weeks later when you’re sore, the motivation has faded and your purpose/desire to do what you set out to do is feeling kind of pointless, this is when habit kicks in and drags you through.
