Procrastination & Motivation

Procrastination & Motivation

Putting off starting exercise and finding motivation to continue exercising are two problems that go hand in hand normally. Our mind will throw up a list of excuses why exercise can be skipped or not started. Sometimes these excuses come out as I haven’t got time, or I’m too tired…

Fear

Fear

Fear of failure, fear of being laughed at, fear of not being able to do it, fear of not being good enough, not confident enough. There are many reasons people use to not exercise. These are just some. Fear is a huge mind challenge.

I’m Too Tired!

I’m Too Tired!

I'm Too Tired! I'm Too Tired! I get it. Life is exhausting! Work, home, hobbies, social life, they all take their toll on how tired we feel. Add to that lack of sleep, cold bugs, aches and pains, the general stress that we encounter throughout the day and you could be...

I Don’t Have Time!

I Don’t Have Time!

This is a good one! In this day and age we all have multiple calls on our time. A combination of work, spouse, children, home chores, social activities all make demands on our time.

Inspiration & Fear

Inspiration & Fear

Many of us live our lives doing what we were brought up as children to do. Following the norm, doing what is expected of us as we grow up. You know the stuff…

Happy Sunday everyone!

Hope you are out there living life to the full and doing what makes you happy!

Often living life to the full means getting out of our comfort zone and doing different. Which can be scary, intimidating maybe.

Sometimes our inner voice tells us ‘Say No’ because it wants to keep us where it know we are safe.

Sometimes we worry about failing at the new thing, being self conscious, making a fool of ourselves, what will other people think?

I say listen to the other voice! The voice that says ‘it looks like fun’ ‘I wonder if I can’ ‘let’s see what happens’ ‘fuck it, let’s do it anyway!’

That voice will get you living life!
Listen hard for that voice every day!

I learned a new lift this year. It started off feeling so unnatural, so uncomfortable, so not me! I knew from those feelings I had to persist with this new thing. And gradually I have learned the lessons it was teaching me.

Here are 2 videos:

The first, a successful lift at a heavy weight. What lifters normally post on SM. The vanity lift if you will!

This was a new personal best for me for this lift. I was pleased but it’s not made me jump around with happiness!

The second video (in the comments) is my favourite one. Spoiler alert I failed! But did I? For me, this lift showed me how far I have come in my personal development as well as my lifting.

1. I wasn’t gutted. I didn’t beat myself up for failing
2. I learned. I learned how that big weight felt and what I can do differently next time.
3. I got that weight off the floor which is a feat in itself!

We can’t always succeed in every new thing we try. But the life and joy is in the journey and the learning.

Go try something new and come back here and share how it makes you feel!

When you get a message like this from your client = why I do what I do!

Can’t even explain how happy this make me to receive this. Needless to say, he’s even happier!

We are well on our way to my client’s target for being in shape for his wedding. And, key point, this is sustainable change for him so that the changes he is making now are sustainable for the future.

Which means his chances of fitting in to his wedding suit in his 5year anniversary are good! 😆

Your body is for life not just weddings and holidays!

If you’re looking to do this, do this The Southey Way!
