I used to FORCE myself to exercise and I hated every minute of it. I would count down minutes on the treadmill, put it off when I could, and always felt “punished” for having to work hard to lose weight.
Then I changed my MINDSET. I stopped working out for weight loss. I picked weights over the treadmill. I stopped worrying about the calories I was burning, and slowly but surely I stopped HATING it.
Now I workout because I LOVE it. I don’t feel like it’s something I’m forced to do but it’s something I CHOOSE to do. I feel better about myself when I workout. I get a mental stress release from moving. And it’s a means of finding pride in my body instead of hating it.
Change your mindset – change your REALITY!!
