Stop and Think
It's easy to get caught up in the moment when you're working out. You can get fixated on the discomfort and difficulty. Those feelings can push your mind to stop and call it a day. Memories of those sensations can get your mind to stop you from trying again the next day. It's ok to stop and think when those doubts creep in. Think about why you're doing this. Think about the progress already made. Think about the progress you still hope to make. Then let your goals overcome your misgivings and keep going. Your body and your mind will thank you. Ali has a point; it's only when you challenge your muscles that they grow larger. If you keep pushing past the point where it becomes challenging, you will see results.
