Exercise For Beginners Primetime, Issue #005 -- Are you killing yourself?
January 07, 2013
First of all, a Happy New Year to all of you!
I hope Christmas was great, and that you had a blast counting down to 2013. I hope no one was hoping the world would end at 21/12/2012!
That's what I want to talk about today. MINDSET.
Are you killing yourself?For the longest time, I didn't realize how this "ingredient" was killing my clients and readers, friends and family. Your mindset is the most important tool when it comes to achieving your fitness goals. Whether you want to lose weight, improve stamina, or gain muscle, or just stay active, if your mindset is bad, you're not going to go very far.
Let's put it this way. I use this analogy for all my clients and now it's time to use it on you. Think about all your friends, colleagues and family members, think about what they tend to say.
I'm sure you have a friend who always complains about not having enough money, and no matter how he/she saves or how much they earn at work, they're always dead broke all the time! Or perhaps you have a friend with incessant headaches. No matter which specialist they go to, or what they do, or no matter how many hours of sleep they clock in, they're always sick all the time.
Your MINDSET powers your BODY.
If you tell yourself you're fat, you're going to stay fat, no matter what you do. No matter how you starve yourself, or diet, or exercise.
Start by looking at yourself in the mirror, and tell yourself that you love yourself, that you look GOOD and you are going to look BETTER.
Notice the choice of words I used. That is what you need to do if you want to succeed.
If you think about it long enough, you'll realize that a lot of things in your life happened because you didn't screw your brain on right. Think about it really hard, and you'll realize it. Trust me.
Free Exercise TipsToday's free exercise tip is to drink more water.
Yes, you've heard of this one, but do you know how much you're supposed to drink? Studies now show that if you want to burn fat and gain muscle and stay healthy, you need to drink at least 4 litres of water per day.
No, I'm NOT kidding. 4 litres. 16 glasses - assuming each glass of yours fellows 250 ml.
If you've not been drinking much, then you should start making incremental changes to be able to drink more. You can do it.
If you don't drink water, you're not going to burn much fat, I guarantee it. You need water to break down fat.
Final Words From AzriThis might be bitter tasting medicine, or might be a little harsh, but I think you should know the truth, and the reality.
So I hope to hear from you!
