Staying positive

On the surface, fitness can seem, well, shallow. You're often all alone, fixating on yourself—what you're going to do, eat, and lift. Occasionally, yes, there are mirrors involved.

Sometimes, like in Week 11 of a tough transformation program, this can seem like a reason to quit. But as with anything, this is just a matter of perspective. If you remove the "me" from the fitness equation, what's left? How can you make your fitness transformation about more than just your physique? How can you make it bigger than how you look? If you can discover a purpose—your family, your kids, your longevity, your ability to show someone else that there is hope for a better life—your cup of motivation should be ever full.

It's also important to remember that your fitness journey is a privilege. There are many, many people in the world who don't get enough food each day, let alone the chance to worry about if they're getting the "right" type of food. Don't waste your opportunity to do something some people can only dream about. Do your best every damned day to make it happen.

Once you have the right shift in perspective, finish this program! You've already made it 10 weeks. Another two will only add incentive to keep your transformation alive. We've heard thousands of times at Bodybuilding.com how the simple act of finishing a 12-week program changes everything. That feeling is right over the horizon.
