Read this, you will be shock at what excuses people give for not working out!

Patient : The problem is that obesity runs in my family. Doctor : No, the problem is no one runs in your family.

 

The worst thing that anyone can blame is their genetic. No one is ever set for something. Some people think they are born fat or skinny and they are destine to live that way. This is normally the norm however, i would like to point out some of the fitness people in Singapore that will prove to you that you can make a difference! Shape your mind and your body follows.

Everyone who did a transformation has a story behind, that motivation comes from deep within them. Often people who didnt stick thru their plan failed to find the true meaning to what they are doing. It is the WHY factor and not the WHAT. We usually focus on What we are doing and not truly asking deep down giving us a deep reason why we should do it!

I workout today because i need to, is not as powerful as i workout today because it is going to keep me healthy and energize me for tomorrow! By tagging a reason to everything you do gives a meaning to it, going thru things without a reason is just like the recent ice bucket challenge where people just pour ice over and shout out to their friends just for the fun of it and throwing the real agenda behind it which is actually to call for more donation.

From today on, i hope you guys can find the reason why! Keep going and never give up!

True Motivation, we are highly motivated inside us!

This is not a motivation talk, because you are already a highly motivated individual. Everyone is self motivated, it just depends on where you focus your energy to. We are self motivated to get the things we wanted, for example working hard and saving up for that car, house, branded watches or to earn money to feed your family and most importantly for survival.

To get a ripped six pack, to get shredded, to feel secure, to get girls, to live healthier. Yes its a goal, but are these goal sustainable, why some people giving up half way? Its the mindset that matters, think about this “Oh its doesn’t matter if i am shredded or not, it is not gonna affect my living anyway.” Will you skip training today if your mindset is that? Do i need to have a fit body for survival? No! i need money more for survival as compared to having a good body!

In the short term you can trade your time for money but think about it in the long run if you are down with critical illness because you didnt care for your body. Think about this situation where you are a successful businessman and one day you got struck by heart attack because you didnt watch your diet. Or you are wheelchair bound because you got too fat to walk?

There isn’t any form of motivation in my opinion. There is only that emotional link that causes you to do what you are doing. Now we are looking at health as something we should do, but in fact health is something that we must do. Its like you must breathe in order to survive. It is always you should workout today, you should do that, but why not you MUST!

When you say you should instead of you MUST, are you saying that health is not important! You only know you have to do it. Do you need any motivation to eat? Most probably not. If you need external motivation to do something, that thing might not be what you really want to do.

For me health and fitness is a must, health and fitness is a lifestyle and not a short term goal. You spend so much time studying how to earn money to build your wealth, but what is wealth without health. Imagine if you are just training thinking that you need to lose weight just to look better, will you continue working out if you have no time? You will most likely to reply yourself, argh i got no time today i can always workout tomorrow or watch my diet tomorrow. BUT if your believe is this working out releases me from my stressful day and i will feel healthier will you find time to workout?  I always believe to be healthy gives me more energy and i can work longer and concentrate better. Its not that we are different, or i am crazy to workout and eat healthy its just that healthy living is on my priority list.

How to get rid of bloated tummy

A lot of people faced the problem of a bloated tummy. These are some of the things i do to reduce my bloated tummy.

1. Drink lots of water! Every day i drink at least 4 litres of water to prevent water retention! Water retention occurs when your body doesn’t have enough water and your body starts panicking therefore it holds water.

2. Reduce your salt intake, increase in salt intake causes your body to store more water!

3. Reduce your grains intake! Some people might not be able to digest grains that well and therefore it causes a lot of stomach upset and bloating.

4. Reduce your milk(yes it includes protein shake) intake! Everyone is lactose intolerant to a certain extend, or during your early stages of life you might not have lactose intolerant but there is a chance you will get it in the later stages.

* you can consider taking whey isolate is regular protein causes you to bloat!

5. Reduce Processed food normally contains high amount of artificial flavoring and coloring together with MSG.
