I Can’t Work Out Because I Have No Energy

I hear this EVERY DAY: “I don’t have any energy!” “You don’t understand I can’t work out because I don’t have any ENERGY!”

I ask, “What have you eaten today?”

“I had three donuts for breakfast with a cup of coffee. For lunch I had two slices of pizza, a little Debbie snack cake and a diet coke. Before I got here I had a bag of Cheetos. I don’t know why I don’t have any energy…”

First of all you can’t eat nutritionally void food every day and expect to have any level of energy. If you don’t know what to eat or how to eat click here.

“I am so tired when I get home I can’t work out because I don’t have any ENERGY.”

I know you don’t have any time, yet you want to be in shape so badly! I am dripping with compassion for you. I feel so bad for you I am literally crying right now. Thanks to you, mascara is running down my face.

“Mascara claims it can make my eyelashes go from skinny to fat in five seconds, but all I can think about is how that describes what happens to me when I eat McDonalds.”

Let’s say I told you that I have two first class tickets to Hawaii, and when you get to Hawaii you will be picked up in a limo and driven to an exotic rental car service. There you will choose from one of three cars: a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Land Rover Range Rover, or a Lamborghini Avenatador (these are the most expensive vehicles in their categories). You will stay seven nights at the Four Seasons. The vacation is all inclusive and contains unlimited excursions and services. The best part is I am paying for the entire trip. (I am using this for an example but stay tuned for challenges to win prizes)

You are leaving in 28 days, but it’s under these conditions:

  1. You have to eat from a list of foods I give you.
  2. You must workout 1 hour a day.
  3. You must log your food intake and workouts accurately every day.

Do you think you could do it? Absolutely!! Because PEOPLE HAVE THE ENERGY TO DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO!

It’s not a matter of energy, it’s a matter of desire. If the reasons are strong enough the amount of energy needed to overcome any obstacle will surface.
People do what people want to do. If you don’t like what you are doing then decide what you want, and write down the reasons you want it. If the reasons are strong enough you will create the desire and ENERGY to obtain your dreams.

Thanks for reading.
