"I promise I'm going to the gym...I gotta get these thighs and butt right."
"I promise I'm gonna start working on my summer body as SOON as the new year rolls in..."
If you utter those words every year, then you sound A LOT like me. Every January, I vocalize my big booty hopes and thick thigh dreams, only to not do anything about it. If I DO hit the gym, I'm not consistent enough. I'll probably go for 2-months consecutively and after that, well...I'm waiting on a new year so I can do it all over.
THAT HAD TO STOP
I'm sure I've mentioned it on here before, but I declared this the year that I invest heavily into myself. From time, to thought, and of course money, I'm shelling it all out because I want to be great in EVERY aspect...this BOD is NO exception.
Now for me, it's not motivating to post pictures of Teyana Taylor as my screen saver and have the Rocky theme song as my alarm tone, I mean that's nice and all but uh...NO. Unfortunately my will power to work out can diminish just as quickly as I say one of the aforementioned statements. But if nothing else will motivate me, I know ONE thing that will....and THAT is my hard earned cheddar. My dough. My guala...and whatever else the cool rappers like to call currency. Now I know you're thinking, "what do you mean? You're not stripping and calling that exercise, are you?"...don't worry, I'm not! It simply means that I had to dish out the bucks for a more expensive training program. Not a measly 10 dollars a month like Planet Fitness or even 20 dollars a month like some other places...I'm talking triple digits.
Currently, I am enrolled in a fitness training group and the cost is $200 a month! To some, that may not sound like a lot (and hello there, you baller you!) but to others, it may sound like an astronomical amount to pay for fitness. However, if you ask me...it's 100% worth it! Not only are the workouts effective, but when that 200 comes out of my account, it's the best motivation to get up and make it count! I'm not going to miss any class, if I can help it. Absolutely NO EXCUSE will get in the way of me working out....because my account tells me to get my butt up and be there. Now, if Jesus came down and said, "My child, don't goeth today, taketh heed" then okay...but otherwise I am PRESENT!
I've been going for almost a month now and I can already see results! I'm not trying to lose weight or anything...if you know me you know the goal is to have the ideal "twerker's body"...but that's besides the point. Speaking of "the point", let me cut straight to it....
I'm no millionaire...but I do have the means to support my lifestyle. I don't have many bills and I'm currently staying with my mom and dad, so I'm in a position to make positive moves with my money without having to take the extremely cheap route. Do not cheat yourself if you don't have to! You have to do what works for you. Besides, a lot of you buy gym memberships and go have the ultimate selfie photo session. OR you go with intentions of doing the right thing, but have no clue what to as to what you should be doing, all in there like "Hmmm...now what is this machine for?" Call me crazy, but there are different strokes for different folks. Some women save their money to buy designer bags and shoes...I'd rather spend mine on my health and fitness. It's as simple as that!
Let go of any excuse you have and get out there and DO IT! If you're self-motivated, then grind it out...if you're not, pay someone handsomely to help you grind it out! You deserve the best...so why not treat yourself to a BOMB BODY if you can?
