Have you ever stopped to think about what could be the serious factors that influence how quickly you lose weight or "get into shape"? Well, I sure have... For me, I think how stressed I am plays a significant role on whether or not I feel the positive inclination to actually be consistent with my exercise regime. It really does become a "drag" when I am just to exhausted from work or studying, to even start a positive trend by exercising. And then the counter-productive thing about it is: when I do skip the essential hours of exercise...I become frustrated with myself. I spend time and time again just beating myself up for having squandered what could have been great and beneficial exercise time and effort... So, what are your negative factors when it comes to things that hinder you from being consistent with your workout and overall fitness regime? Is it over-exhaustion, not enough personal motivation, eating too much too late at nights? Please, let me know! Hopefully, we can come up with some remedies that can help us to fight de-motivation!
