I’m a true believer for planning ahead when it comes to your exercise sessions. For me, they’re non-negotiable and I put them into my planner 6 months ahead. Of course there are times when the body is too tired to exercise, that’s when I do some active rest like a light walk. However, there are times too where that voice inside your head is saying” it’s too early to get up for a run, or this beds too warm to get out of, or tomorrow’s another day.”

This is when I have a few mantras or quotes in my head ready to blast that voice.

I’ve listed a few from the well-known people, few of my own to knock out that voice.

  • Don’t put off today what you can do tomorrow
  • Stop wishing – Start doing
  • Your body changing: It takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing. It takes 8 weeks for friends and family to notice. And it takes 12 weeks for the rest of the world. Keep going!
  • The body achieves what the mind believes.
  • To keep going: “Prepare a 45 minute long playlist of songs and keep going until the end.”
  • Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference between fitness success and fitness failure.”
  • Imagine yourself at your goal weight, optimum health and wellbeing. The mind is where the race is won.

  • “The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.” Steve Young.
  • “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle
