When you hear or see the word athlete, what comes to mind? Do you think of the pros? Do you think of high school and college kids?
Simply put, an athlete is a participant in a sport, exercise, or game requiring physical skill.
If you would’ve known me growing up, athlete would not have been a word you used to describe me. In fact, my high school yearbook would not have said anything like “mostly likely to become an athlete”.
Motivation. Where do you find it? How can I get some? You’re so motivated! I’m just not.
Let’s face it….it’s hard to do the right thing. It’s hard to eat right. Exercise 6 days a week. That’s hard. It’s hard to refrain from gossip. You want me to smile and wave at the driver who cut me off? I’m not sure about that. It’s hard to save money. Life can just be hard sometimes. Even a lot of the time it can be hard. We all have our areas of struggle and weakness. Given that this is primarily a health and fitness blog, I’m going to focus on that part in the “life is hard” scenario.
We all know the value of fitness. Maybe not all the specifics, but people know exercise is good for them. Knowing that I workout and run and that I blog about it and share it on social media, one of the first things a person says to me is “I really need to start exercising” or “I don’t know how you do it, but I really need to do something.” (It’s kinda like being around me makes them feel guilty!?!)
