A daily examination of a training diary can be on of the most motivational tools. If you aren’t already recording your workouts, begin doing so now. Of particular importance is writing down all the sets, reps, exercises and poundage’s your perform.

Training logs are crucial for giving you a frame of reference and allowing you to look back to see the progress you’ve made.  Such reviews help you understand that. Improvement doesn’t take the form of one consistent upward dramatic curve but rather is a series of peaks and plateaus. If you find yourself at a sticking point, reviewing your workouts can motivate you by the simple fact that right there in black and white, you can see the former impasses were eventually conquered.

The difference between knowing what to do and doing what you know.

Nutrition and exercise can be confusing subjects, so when you first get started, the initial challenge is that you don’t know what to do. With a Fitastic program in your hands, knowing what to do will no longer be a problem. However, gaining knowledge is only half the battle. The far greater challenge for most people is applying that knowledge and taking action. There is a big difference between knowing what to do and doing what you know. Goals are the bridges that span this gap.

Goals, when properly planted in the subconscious mind, produce action. Goals create energy and motivation. Goals get you out of bed early in the morning and into the gym. The secret to staying motivated all the time is to set emotionally charged goals – in writing – and to stay totally focused on those goals day and night, without taking your eyes off them. A goal with a purpose is the fuel that propels you forward.
