Exercising is not easy, it requires a ton of discipline and consistency, furthermore it demands a lot of patience as it takes time for consequential results to reveal themselves.
I always say the biggest part of the battle starts in your head and the story you tell yourself. Trust me when I tell you that even the most consistent fittest persons don't feel like working out or eating healthy MOST of the time. Although it might seem like they have it easy but the reality is that they are in constant dispute with themselves between following the status quo or sticking to their healthy lifestyle habits. What they have in great control however is how they perceive the choices in front of them granting them great discipline.
How you perceive a challenge or an obstacle greatly determines your overall success. Looking at a lifestyle change choice as a "pain in the ass" and repeating that story in your head will just make it harder to stick to your fitness journey. Try changing the narrative when you don't "feel like it", tell yourself that although you are tired and you don't feel like going out in the cold to go to the gym, that you are doing it because *insert positive reason(s)*. Just that slight change in narrative will affect your perception and give you an edge in your fitness journey.
