Fitness is not just an activity marked as ‘complete’ on your daily check list. If you go to the gym, for lets say 1h per day, you give your 70%, because most of the people are not really pushing themselves to the limits, they are just treating training as a ‘okey, I did something, I moved a little bit today’, then you go out, you think you ate healthy home cooked meal without even thinking about how many calories you just consumed and from which macronutrients your dinner was mostly made. Or even better – you just bent on crap and you grab some proceeded food. Then yes, you will stay average, but don’t expect to be legendary.
Is not about working out multiplied times per day. Yes, I train mostly twice per day, but you are not me, I’m not you. You will never be me; I will never be you. I do what is good for me. For my mind and body. Don’t compare yourself to anybody. Train once but leave all out. Give not 100% but 110%. Push yourself more than yesterday. Track your calories until you will get to the point that you can count them in your head. Make smart food choices. Drink water. Sleep enough. And there you go. Success guaranteed.
Me personally, I treat my trainings as a healing for my mind. To challenge myself daily and see how far I can go. To get stronger mentaly. I’m happier when I add one more plate to my bar rather than when I see my muscles getting bigger. Body is just a side effect. I’m completely not focused on having ABS, bigger biceps, more define triceps, quads which are sticking out and making my life harder to find a well fit jeans.
People see just the side result, the see just your body. But nobody notices the hard work which is behind. It’s not just ‘okey I trained today’. Is much more than that. Fitness is a lifestyle, which doesn’t suit to everyone. So, if you are not about this life, don’t lie to yourself, don’t try to be someone you are not. It’s all good. We are all different.
