When motivation wanes, remind yourself what you stand for

Usually once a week, it so happens that I feel like not going to gym and surprisingly reasons start coming up that also drive me in that direction. But when after all these reasons have stopped, comes that one thought that makes me pack my bags and head to gym. The thought that post my workout how I will feel, that feeling of dragging your ass in gym and then working out, looking in mirror while working is priceless to say the least. There has not been a single day when I have come out of gym feeling anything but powerful, strong, accomplished and on the top of the world. When I revisit all these feelings, no matter how late I am due to these ruminations of not heading to gym, I get up straight, pack my bag and hit the gym. Right the moment I enter into the gym, I thank myself for taking that decision. Gym has been my go to place all this while, whenever I have felt little down, I have always worked out and then talked to myself in front of the mirror. Iron is my best friend, it is always available. It is my go-to-friend.

It has been 15 months since I started gymming and strength training, this is one of the best decisions that I have taken in my life. I stand for health and that responsibility that I carry reminds me that it is a life-long commitment and consistency is the only religion. I literally crave for those 90 minutes in gym, it is the best time of the day for me. It is not what it is without my trainers, so I am truly grateful to them because of whom I have learnt so much, every single one of them : Imran, Prince, Mahesh, Amrish and Rajan.

When motivation wanes, realize what you stand for.  And then roar like a lion ! So, what do you stand for?
