Hey all!

So, as I may or may not have mentioned in previous posts, I LOVE Oxygen Fitness Magazine. I buy the mag often, and I have their website on my favorites list. Today, I was surfing their page when I came across a complete 90-day workout transformation. They completely provide a shopping list, meal plan, and workout plan for ALL 90 days!

This is awesome for me because I often struggle with my diet. This is completely set up for people like me who aren’t really sure where to start! I seriously recommend taking a look at the plan AND the site in general! I will be going shopping in a few days and then it will begin!! I’m so motivated and so excited to see changes in my body! Here’s the link to the plan: http://www.oxygenmag.com/fat-loss/your-90-day-best-body-challenge/

And here’s some motivational FITSPO!

So here we are…again. It’s been awhile, and not surprisingly, I’ve made no progress in my quest for better health. So far, I’ve been failing.

That’s why I titled this post the way that I did. We are all afraid to fail at something at one point in our lives. If you’re like me, you’ve failed so badly once, you’ve been afraid to take a risk since. Every decision takes me months, sometimes more, to make. But we shouldn’t fear failure, we should embrace it. If we do, we will know which steps to take to achieve success.

That is why I am once again blogging, and once again starting a workout regimen, but this time, it will be permanent. My fitness was my biggest failure, and has cost me a great career, a ton of money, and has caused me to doubt myself and miss out on opportunities since that I should have taken, but was too afraid to go through with (there, I’ve said it!). I won’t get into details, but that sums it up in a nutshell. I won’t allow myself to keep living like this, at 24! 

We most own our mistakes, come to terms with them, and then move forward. So here’s to new beginnings! Tomorrow starts the first day of the rest of my life!

Here’s some motivational FITspo (emphasis on Fit) to get me, and maybe even you, started.

So we all know that feeling. You know you need to work out, and you fee guilty when you don’t, but you just can’t find the motivation to do it. For me, that’s one of the reasons I seem to fail at weight loss time and time again. And, since it’s still winter, going outside sounds like that last thing you want to do. So how do you stay motivated?

Well, over the years I have found a few ways to keep myself motivated. I think about the summer time and how I would look in a brand new bikini. I set weight goals for myself, and when I reach them I treat myself (to food or shopping, etc). I keep a log of my exercise and when I see a blank space it motivates me to stay on top of my work outs.

These might work for you. They might not. The point is, you need to find something to keep you motivated to continue to do your work outs. Do you have a family? Do you have plans for the future? Just think about how life would be if your health got in the way of that. What would your family do without you? What if you can’t travel to that island in the Caribbean because your in poor health? Those are good motivators if you ask me!

What are some ways you guys stay motivated when you feel like you’d rather watch TV than work out?
