NO MORE EXCUSES: What I learned from my first day of Bootcamp.

Do the following sound familiar to you?  These were all statements that I said before or during my first day at a fitness Bootcamp yesterday. It didn’t hit me until after that I use too many excuses.

“I am going a bit slower today BECAUSE I didn’t sleep well last night” – said as I was hiking

“I am taking my time down the hill BECAUSE I sprained my ankle” – on the way down

“I’m nervous to start this program BECAUSE I’ll look like a beginner” – in the car before Bootcamp

Or maybe some of these sound familiar to you....

It can be hard but you need to train your brain to overcome setbacks.  I should focus on the reasons to continue and excel.

The negative behaviour of making excuses needs to stop.  Yes, there will always be a reason for me not to perform my best, i.e., I didn’t sleep well, my ankle is sore, or I’ll look like a beginner, etc. But I need to overlook such excuses and not let them hinder my performance.

My current goal of the Bootcamp is to stop making excuses and push myself.  It has been said: “You train your brain and your body will follow.”

Any tips or suggestions for how to stop this way of thinking???

I love being active.  However, this way of thinking is preventing my from doing what I love.
