    Motivate me with .jpegs.

    Hey guys, I just had my first training session with my personal trainer, i always wanted to get fit, buff, ripped looking good. il admit its always been for the looks, not for living a healthy life, but whats wrong with that. i used to always work out for a week before forgetting about it or neglecting it and not continuing it. but this time i decided im going to stick with it and make it a part of my life, so im getting trained 3 times a week for the next 3 months and im going to stick with it.

    what i want from you guys is, what do you guys use to motivate yourselves? i used to have a few .jpegs of motivational pictures that i used to look at when ever i was on the verge of quitting or just liked to look at coz it made me get pumped. what do you guys look at, listen to, or watch.

    I look at pictures of really fat people to help me motivate myself whenever I have to go to the gym.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    I have a collage in my room with "fitness" quotes. I am female, so most - well, all of my motivational pictures are of females. Not sure if you'd feel weird having picture of guys up in your room, haha. Meh. Whatever helps. Here is one of my favorites which pushes me to go on running up heavy inclines P: (can't forget about lifting though ... squats, lunges, deadlifts ofc all help too)

    I'm a quiet lifter I tend to internalize, all I focus on is correct movements and breathing. Don't focus on end goals ie 'I want to lose 20lbs' focus on immediate goals 'i want to lose 2 lbs this week' same goes for strength increases. The lifestyle is difficult to get into especially the diet (at least for me) but like everything you get use to it and it provides you with a good amount of mental discipline as well.

    first of all, i recommend a better motivation that doing it for the looks, for example, i have built a mentality of "pain is weakness leaving the body" and i have this immense admiration of the paladin class from the warcraft universe... and as foolish as it may sound my core motivation is to become more like a paladin, strong not only physically but also having a strong will.

    so putting both those together along with a good amount of knowledge, i have created an exercise plan that pushes my body to a point where i sometimes nearly lose consciousness
    and the results are unbelievable
