In Rough Times

Hey Guys, this post isn't much in the lines of guidance but more about my personal journey lately.

Long story short girlfriend broke up with me, now we've got that over we can get into exercise part of it. 

My personal struggle has been to get back to the gym and get back into my 3-4 day split, doing exercise around the house helps doing the following pushups, shoulder pushups, dips, etc off anything I can find.  My plan is to start my weekly split next Monday and just go as hard as I can, also I'm looking at investing in a boxing bag for some stress relief.

My question to you guys is, how do you deal with stress?

Training Quotes!

"Your head might be down, you may have hit a little plateau in your training, so its times like this that you can source some motivation from the simplest of words. Here's a tip, try writing one on your forearm, or a scrap piece of paper, take it to the gym and use it to remind yourself that there's no going to heaven by backing away from hell..

Reuben Bajada"

"The person who wins is an ordinary person. Not blessed with any particular build, not favored by any luck. The person who wins is the person who works.
Kevin Carroll - 03/09"

My own personal on the spot quote would be "Only when a person associates pain with lack of motivation rather than pleasure of being in comfort will they succeed. - Joshua Milner"

Who likes the idea?

Does anyone like the idea of me uploading a few clips onto youtube showing you stuff you could do around your house?

I'm not a complete muscle head and still have some fat on me so it won't be bullshit people trying to tell you how to get like them but instead how get started on some motivation?

How to stay motivated?

My personal motivation is hard on occasion, especially if I miss even one session I'll get lazy and want to miss the next.  What I've found that's helped was getting my girlfriend to go with me or you could even get a friend to go with you.

The most major motivation factor is when you see results after 4-6 weeks of whatever you're doing...but remember you have to keep it up or your results may deteriorate.

"Due to the mechanics of muscular development, often a training program incorporates lots of repetition within its workouts. This can become pretty boring after a while and may lead to your plan going off track.

Fighters, bodybuilders, powerlifters and many other explosive athletes all credit the power of motivation and outside inspiration for getting them out of bed each morning. Re-igniting that desire to succeed so they can spend yet another day challenging themselves in the gym.

The following list includes some critical methods on how to stay motivated especially when all else has failed and progress has rapidly began to slow down.

Revisit your past.

If you think everything is against you, take a really good look at how you were when you started. For most, you will begin to see how much you have achieved already. Remember what you did to get where you are now, you might get cold chills down your spine just thinking of all the hard work you put yourself through, but seek motivation in the fact that the hard work you did then is DONE, and by simply continuing with that positive attitude you will continue to see even better results."

Some Tips on Fat Loss Diets

"Losing weight is not only helps to improve the way that you look, but also it is important to improving your health and quality of life. By reducing your body weight by 10% you will substantially reduce your chances of developing diabetes, heart disease, and even joint problems. For a woman that weighs 165 pounds a 10% weight reduction would only be about 16.5 pounds. This reduction will help you feel better about yourself, it will help you drop a dress size or two, and it will help you enjoy your life.

Why Most Diets Fail

Most fad diets fail because they create negative biological effects within your body. Starvation diets that reduce your daily caloric intake too much will actually cause you to hold onto fat and extra body mass by lowering your rate of metabolism and by triggering your body's starvation defense mechanisms. Fad diets that reduce your food choices to only one or two food groups are also unhealthy, and they will ultimately fail because they starve your body by not providing it with adequate amounts of nutrients, minerals, and fats that it needs to operate and function properly. As your body runs out of the stored elements it will trigger a craving that will encourage you to eat foods that have the nutrients that it needs. These craving, unfortunately, will kill you diet as once you start eating the restricted foods you won't be able to stop.

In addition to nutritional concerns that fad diets pose, unbalanced diets also impact the way that you feel, and your ability to function normally. With too few calories, and too few nutrients your moods will swing to the dark side, and people will not want to be around you. This could negatively impact your ability to function at work, to socialize with others, or to take part in your family's activities."
