Hi.. Again

Hello everyone, I'm just sticking my head back in the forum after a good couple of years away.

I guess I'm back to try and get some motivation back as for the last few years it's dissapered. I've been going to the gym but absolutly hating it and not at all for the last 3-4 months as I've got plenty of niggles that have stopped me from training.. I've massively lost all self respect diet wise and need to get the love back that I had a few years back.

I've realised that I need to stop making excuses and just get on with it

Have any of you guys gone through a crap spell in your training? If so, what's inspired you to turn your mind around?

    Hi mate.
    The only time I lose motivation is now at Christmas because I'm too busy or if I get a cold.
    Keep at it bud :)

    Welcome back. I think many of us have been through it. It happens to me when work takes over and you feel that you can't justify the time when you could be doing something work-wise.

    Start slowly but remain consistent.

    Cheers guys, nice to know I'm not alone in feeling this way . I've not had much luck getting back into it.. I've been in bed with the norovirus for the last 5 days.

    Not loving life at the moment. Haha

    Still a motivation type question I guess...

    As I mentioned before I'm hating the gym, but it's partly because it's about 9 miles from my house.
    I'm tempted to rejoin my old gym, which happens to be an LA fitness, meh! But it's only down the road.

    I've only stayed at my current gym as they offer a body transformation kind of thing, which clients have had some awesome results if I'm honest.
    I'm not usually a whore to these kind of things but was hoping it would encourage me and guide me as I have lost a bit of knowledge in my absence, both training and diet wise.

    I'm massively unsure whether to stay put and hope I can get involved with the rigid transformation type plan, or go back to where I used to enjoy the gym and see what happens?

    How long does the transformation plan last?

    100 days mate. It's very demanding from what people have told me. It would be one of those things where I'd commit, then pick up and injury or have to work away a week into it.

    I love my positivity

    Why don't you see how it goes with the transformation program and if it doesn't work out then change to a gym closer to you? You are defo not going to make much, if any, progress if you're heart is not 100% in it.
     
    I go through times where I'm not enjoying it that much, my consistency is all over the show and before I know it 3 or 4 months have gone by and I've made no progress whatsoever. You kid yourself that you'll make up for missing sessions and that only putting in 50% effort will still get good results.
     
    I find having a rest from it for a short period of time, coming up with a new training plan or setting short term targets to give you something to aim for puts me back on track.

    I decided to ditch my current gym and rejoin my old one nearer my house. I thought about it and I really enjoyed it when I trained there and I made some good gains.
    With the help of the guys on here I'm sure I'll manage to get back in shape, not that I'm massively out of shape, just got a bit skinny fat.
    I'm planning on getting back to the gym doing some kind of solid routine like a p/p/l and eating real, clean food and see how that treats me for a few months.... I feel like I'm getting the love back a bit already!
