"When was the last time you did something for the first time?"Do you find yourself in a rut? Do you have the same routine over and over again? Every weekend its the same routine. Every time you go to the gym you workout on the same equipment doing the same workout you have been doing since high school or college? Do you run the same path over and over again because you know how it starts and how it ends? Do you follow the same eating habits that don't help you get to the goals you want in your fitness? Is your routine helping you become a better & healthier tomorrow? When will you decide to change?
We seem to like the same thing over and over again because we know what the outcome will be. A workout on the same machine will make my legs a little, but I wont have to be out of breath after I'm done. The trail I run everyday isn't so hard that I have to stop and re cooperate until my heart rate goes down. I don't want to take that class because I might fail in it.
Why are we afraid of change? When it comes to exercise, a change in your fitness routine might be the solution to see results in your health and fitness. Running a different trail might yeld a harder course, but challeging yourself to run up a steeper hill might help break past a fitness plateu you've been trying to conquer. Doing a bodyweight workout like pushups, pull ups, squats, & lunges instead of lifting weights might force you to use muscles you never knew were there. Eating 5-6 small meals a day instead of 2-3 big meals a day might make you lose the 5-10 lbs you've been trying to lose.
So my question again, "When was the last time you did something for the first time?"
