3. Don’t Be Afraid to Push Yourself past Your Comfort Zone

Let’s talk about being comfortable today, and more importantly, pushing yourself past the point of comfort (AND cue the uncomfortable feeling in the pit of your stomach!)

Be honest with yourself as you answer these questionsβ€”

β€œWhat is the scariest part about reaching your health and fitness goals? What is the scariest part about NOT reaching these goals?”

Think about it. Just because you hated broccoli and cauliflower as a little kid doesn't mean that you still hate them as an adult. The taste buds inside of our mouth change over the years and as we age.

Food simply tastes different to us now than it did when we were kids. Give all sorts of new, healthy, and nutritious foods a chance; even if you were convinced as a kid you didn't like them.

In the same way, don't be afraid to push past your comfort zone when it comes to exercise. I'm not saying that you should feel like you're going to throw up, or are dying during every workout you do, but remember the goal of exercising. You're trying to make your muscles and heart just a little bit stronger than yesterday. If you don't push your muscles and heart past their current fitness levels, you'll never see improvements in the gym. When you feel stronger, are able to grab heavier weights, and begin to see muscles you never knew you had, your motivation soars!
