The Pain of Discipline Now or the Pain of Regret Later

This morning I started a course of sessions with a Personal Trainer.  

I have been going to the gym regularly, doing my cardio workout and machine-based exercises plus I take weekly swimming classes so I think I am pretty fit.  I just want that extra "oomph" to lose a few kgs and tighten up some of the legs-bums-tums muscles that us women have a problem with, especially when we have had children so our abdomen muscles have stretched to a ridiculous size in relation to the rest of our body.

The good news is that my Personal Trainer, Dan, is very good looking and knows what he is doing.  The bad news is that I ache and feel weary all over.  

The easy option would be to give up now, go back to my previous exercise plan, but what would that achieve?

As Jim Rohn said,
"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live." 

Exercise is a discipline of both body and mind.  I know that choosing not to do the exercise will mean that I cannot wear some of my favourite clothes this summer because right now they are too tight.  Longer-term, I do not want to be one of the middle-aged women who have allowed the lbs/kgs to stick to my waist and thighs.  There are many women younger than me in my health club who are very obese.  At some point, they made the wrong choices and now they are trying to shed that weight.  It is so much easier to have the discipline now rather than having to correct the lack of discipline later.
"We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment."
Are there areas in your life where you know that discipline is what is needed to help you achieve your goals?  I can help you with my unique combination of Hypnosis, NLP Results Coaching and Personal Development to instill the motivation and determination to start the process and maintain the discipline to keep going.  I help people worldwide through Skype so contact me today, the English Skype Hypnotist, to set out a plan for reaching your goals with discipline of steel.
