Motivational Tip No.4 by The Drama Queen

LivRelief 2

I have realized that once a thought has motivated me; it immediately becomes redundant. It cannot motivate me again ( at least not in near future). To generate new thoughts and gain more knowledge and stay motivated (of course!) I read a lot of fitness related magazines and websites and then derive my own logic (which works for my psyche and body) . I always find something that makes me go "Aaaaahhh! I didn't know that"!

Recently picked up some new perspective on hard-work. Hard-work versus Destiny debate has been beaten to death, so I won't be getting into that but what I found interesting was how everything in life (career, marriage, relationships, etc.) requires a bit of hard-work, a bit of luck, a bit of vision, a bit of perseverance and still there is NO guarantee that one will succeed! And then I realized that it's NOT true for health and fitness. It doesn't require anything else but hard-work (and may be a little bit of determination :P), I personally stand witness to that! I have been slogging my a$$ in the gym for years now and boy! it totally shows results (and is worth it!!!). Health and Fitness is one area where if I one is determined to work (hard) on, then will DEFINITELY see results (i.e. succeed). As long as one is true to him/herself and setting realistic goals (of course) and pushing him/herself to the maximum limit, there is no way that one could fail!

I am a believer of No Pain-No Gain and this is sweet pain because the gain is guaranteed! No wonder it feels so gratifying after a good work out! There are some things in life that you CAN'T fix and some things which you CAN. So why not focus on those that you CAN and make life happier :o)

Tip No.4 - 

Hard-work gives 100% results (in health and fitness)


  1. Thks Tanvi.I totally believe in this phrase.Any determination with efforts leads 2 success.

  2. Tanvi,
    Very good point about hard work in this area! I think I will quote you on it.
    I have found that people who say they work out but can't lose weight are not willing to look at both parts of the equation, namely Input + Output = Weight. Some focus on just Input (food) and some on just Output (exercise).

  3. Also, Happy Valentine's Day to you and Mr. Fabulous!

  4. thanks tanvi! your thoughts definitely make me want to go to the gym and work hard. however, we'll see who wins the debate tomorrow morning when try to get up! my tired body or my determined mind! the mind should always win, right?

  5. Meetu D - Thank You! :o)

    Amy - I hope you win the debate this morning to get to the gym :o)

  6. Oy dramey, i read all your posts again today, made me laugh, but hey, im keeping up with it all!!! I want more 1000 calorie recipies! that 1st one was fantastic but i cant do it everyday.... Hint hint, muah xoxo

  7. Will surely work on that and send it thru! Right now ready for a Rock'n'Roll weekend :o)

  8. Have a fan-ta-bu-lous one!!! xoxo

  9. Send me the 1000 calorie plans too ... :o)

  10. Thanks tanvii...for trying hard to keep us motivated. You must know that this old post of yours is still helping people here in California get up and go to gym.

    Wish there was a way for someone else could do the workout for me....but until then, I need to get my as$ off this office chair and do it myself :)

    You rock girl!
