Back when I was starting out writing on the interwebs some 5 years ago, I remember "experts" saying you had to do TOP 10 Tip articles. I did a few. I tried to follow what I was supposed to do. What others were doing who were successful in the blogging world and specifically in the fitness blogging world.
But like all things, I eventually go off the path and do my own thing. You gotta follow your own heart, listen to your own drumbeat and other such sayings..
So I've grown to dislike the "Top 10" posts. Or top 5, 20.. Mostly because, you don't need any more tips.
You know what to do. But you aren't doing it. Or not enough of it.
The biggest excuse I hear is lack of time, and rather than just scream at the top of my lungs "MAKE TIME!" I choose to offer up something more helpful, in my opinion.
Here's what I want you to do. This is your action-plan.
Go to a store that sells t-shirts and shorts/sweats/workout clothes. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive or colorful.
More basic the better, in my view but if you like to mix it up with fancy colors then have at it.
Also, while you're out, buy a gym bag. Seriously. It can be a no-name brand, doesn't matter.
Now before you go to bed I want youto pack the gym bag with your gym clothes. Set your alarm for an hour earlier than you normally do.
You will be doing a 30 minute workout. Depending on how far your gym is (it could be your garage or basement) you will have to adjust for time, obviously.
Even if you have weights in your garage I want you to perform this routine. It seems so simple and ridiculous, I know. But it's important.
The act of buying gym clothes and packing your bag can make a huge difference. And the repetition of this act, over and over for weeks, months, years will pay off in big-time results. (along with hard work in the gym and proper diet, of course)
If you have yet to cement your fitness habits this is a great way to start.
Just do this. Don't worry about packing your lunch every day or anything else just yet. Do this 3 times per week for 2 months. If you have found it hard to get to the gym and only go sporadically, this will help.
No "TOP 10 Tips" here. Just actionable advice. Now do it.
If you need someone to help you stay accountable send me an email. I will do my best to help you get over the hump.
