The great news is that whatever shape you have been in before,you can get back to your best levels once again. All that hard work in the past won’t go amiss, and if you apply yourself, using tried and tested techniques, you’re going to get there again and this time you won’t feel like leaving it go. You will be better mentally prepared, and you’re going to expect roadblocks along the way too, i can assure you there will be. You will get around them and through them if you stay consistent and 80% of the time, are in good form and you have a very good structure in your training, eating and sleeping, that’s all it takes.
Expect negative comments and use them to fuel your anger when it comes to having great workouts and proving everyone wrong. Learning to use negatives as a positive force can be very valuable, instead of letting them crush you in the past. If someone has a go at me now, it only adds to my motivation and i usually thank those for doing it. It’s a great state of mind to be in and you can get there too, very soon if you adopt some simple principles.
Just had my last workout before christmas and feel great, have a great christmas!
