Confidence Motivation and more Confidence

Whenever i try to do something or get something done, i often find myself having no desire to complete the task at hand. It’s usually either because i’m too lazy to do it or because I’ve lost sight on the bigger picture, or even worse i don’t think i can achieve that big picture. Recently i saw Rocky for the first time and it really teaches people something about the human’s way of never giving up. I for one am not a huge fan of violence in any way, but i usually let it slide when its a movie that’s just really, really good.

First off, this movie really touches on the whole push yourself until you can’t push yourself anymore, and then keep going. I absolutely love an underdog story and it always reminds me of how i need to get up and get into gear because no matter what it is i’m trying to do, i need to give it 110% or it won’t be worth it. Yet, with all this, i can’t do anything without confidence. Confidence is the number one thing someone needs to do anything, ANYTHING. Without confidence you’re just doing the motions and hoping it will be enough. NO! You have to look at yourself in the mirror or your front camera and say,”Hey, it sucks sometimes how people think of you, or how you think of you, but get this ish done because that’s what needs to happen and you deserve to have this be amazing.” Maybe not that detailed but for the love of God tell yourself you can do it! And if you can’t tell yourself or believe yourself, then find someone who will! Surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally and won’t forget to tell you, just be sure you’re listening. “People who mind don’t matter and people who matter don’t mind” I tell myself that it has helped me make so many decisions in life that would have ultimately made me a much sadder person had i not reminded myself.

 

What’s that? You have confidence but you don’t see a point? Is it laziness? Maybe, but if that’s the case go outside and take a run or hurry up and finish binge watching that T.V series. All in all you need some good old fashion motivation. Trust me i get it, if there’s no point then, well what’s the point. There always is a point though, always, some are just harder to find that others. Get up and find something that really moves you, something that bothers you so much you feel the need to do something about it. And for please let it be your reasons, not someone else’s’ because that’s just borrowing someone’s confidence and you gotta build up yourself to say i’m doing this for me and for whatever reasons i have because that’s that, so stand out of my way or help. Rocky heard everyone saying how stupid it is for him to be doing this, and how its just a joke, but he said i’m training and competing for me because i have something to prove, and not only to everyone else but to myself. That’s amazing to me, and an obvious reason as to why this movie is so memorable.

Whatever it is you’re trying to do i wish you luck, because it will be difficult and you might not get the results you wanted, but no matter what you did it the way you wanted to and hey, you did something!

Shhh, don’t tell mom.

The word “diet” is often misused whether it’s cutting the number of meals you have in day or getting rid of your indulgences ENTIRELY. It’s inhumane and it ruins the purpose of food. Food not only provides energy but should be eaten in enjoyment. Life becomes a little more bearable when the food you eat makes you content. It’s only contentment if food lives up to its name: comfort food, indulgences, desserts.

  1. Trade in the old for the new. Here’s where math comes in handy. That chocolate molten fudge you’re craving? Substitute it for a  hot chocolate banana-nut oatmeal instead, chocolate heaven with a crunch of a nut topped with a hint of banana. Breakfast just got better: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/hot-chocolate-banana-nut-oatmeal-recipe.html  Eventually with repetition and time, the cravings will lessen and you’ll be hooked onto new foods (vegetables, fruits, whole grains) with your changed palate.
  2. Work out to pig out. Turn those carbs into abs. Those ab workouts, lunges, crunches, cherry pickers, planks, squats….for the price of eating whatever you want, how ever much you want? Uhhh yes! Studies also show that there’s a release of endorphins after working out. Happiness+ food= satisfaction.
  3. Eat more meals. Three meals a day…how about five? Instead of splitting up your meal plan into three big meals, split it into more meals but with less food on your plate. Doing this, you increase your metabolism by allowing your body to digest more meals at a time. It’s amazing what your body can do.

The next time you’re craving, debate it with the tips and tricks above before making the final decision. Enjoy yourself!!
