I exercise 3 times a week and often feel like I can’t do the exercise. Although I can most of the times and feel stupid about it so I do them anyway. To me it feels like a lack of confidence in myself and also I don’t want to loose face. I have trouble staying with myself and the exercise. Are there wise words that can help me building confidence and trust that I can do it and if I can’t than that’s something that’s okay too? (It doesn’t has to do with willpower, lost 42 pounds and am loyal to my gym appointments). Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer. (:

You should very feel Stupid about being active. A new exercise regimen may feel awkward at first . Keep being active and pursuing Challenges .

I used to go through that, especially when I tried to work out at home. I don’t know how wise it is, but I finally just said to myself, it’s OK to slack off a bit, JUST keep MOVING. I found when I gave myself a break, I’d have the power and desire to work harder next time. Hope that helps! And way to go on your journey so far!

Being consequent is hard, especially when we lack confidence in our skills or just feel down. Staying loyal to our goals takes a lot of willpower and is most important part of everything. I'm just a random person on the internet that don't really know any wise words or spells to help you with your struggle. All I know is that you're doing great and are a champ for sticking to gym appointments and everything even when you don't feel like it. Just be true to yourself, don't care too much about others and their opinion (it can be unhealthy) and most important of all – trust yourself, if you know you can do it, you really can, noone else will be stopping you harder that your mind and doubts. Winning with that is biggest part of your fight, and you're winning it.

Sorry, no wise words here. I have trouble sometimes too. I get uncomfortable but I try to alternate between types of exercise that are fun and comfortable and those that are a little more challenging.

I don't thinkwhat you are experiencing has anything to do with willpower. I think you might not be taking adequate calories as to burn, one also needs calories in. Otherwise, it is breakdown and thus fatigue, especially if you are using proteins only for calories. Iwould encourage low carbs but healthy fats andproteins in your diet. Also, observe your baseline heart rate and then after 1 minute of high intensity workout. Then rest and observe how long it takes to return to baseline. A lot depends on age, other concurrent conditions, etc. Hope this helps

Hello! Sorry if you had to wait a bit!! I would love to answer your question! It sounds like your really not that confident in yourself, and that’s Okay!!! Many people lose confidence in themselves for many different ways; was my drawing really that good? Am I gonna get that A in class, or did I not study enough? However, I find the best way to get my self-confidence up is knowing that even though I might have done the WORST possible stretch routine ever, I still did it! I’m still improving at least a tiny bit! It’s virtually IMPOSSIBLE for you not to improve at the very tinniest but every time you do something multiple times! And besides, you did something most people are too scared to start because they are afraid of not being able to do the exercise, kind of like you!! However, unlike them, you TRIED and that’s the best possible thing to do when your down on yourself!! Hope this helped!! <3

You’re doing great! 3 times a week excercise is more than most people can say! Just keep it up, see the changes in your body, feel the energy it gives you, everytime you’ve done it. Just doing your exercises is more than enough and you will feel how you improve over time.

I add a dance song to the end of my two workout songs and secretly regard the dance as the actual reason for exercising. It’s a personal party for having invested time in my health 😀

There could be a number of reasons for these feelings that you're having. It could be your biochemistry, in which case you got to look at your diet and make sure that it's balanced. Everyone is different and have different dietary requirements, so look into that. Along with that, look at your psychology, your self esteem. These factors are just as important to look after as your body is.
To make a long discussion short, 10 minutes of meditation a day, reading books on psychology, self help, self esteem and things that you're interested in as well as people that you consider great people will help lift you up.
Consider your environment, your circumstances, your peer group, friends and colleagues. All these factors play a fundamental role on how you view yourself and your abilities. Work on them, try to improve them in small ways every day, get better at it every day.
And when you're exercising and can't seem to stay with it? Focus solely on your breathing. This will clear your mind and centre you again.
I hope this helps, friend.
Take care. You're doing great!

I've found for me that exercising with a friend makes me feel less like I obviously don't what I'm doing (I'm not a newbie I've been exercising for five years now pretty consistently but I still feel like I am when I'm by myself). Another thing that works for me is doing a group class (like Barry's) it's easier to stay motivated with someone telling everyone what to do and reminding us to modify instead of quitting. I dont know if that helped but good luck!

The one thing that always helps me at the gym is knowing that everyone is there to do the same thing, to get fit. So even if I’m not doing something right, at least I’m doing and I’ve made the effort to be there and give it a go

Hello,
First of all you have to give yourself the respect you deserve for sticking up to your work outs and for losing the 42 pounds. That alone should give you a high dose of confidence. Everytime you feel like not exercicing count to 3 and go ! Also try to keep the work out equipements at hand it will make it easier. And remember one thing, the things that are worthy in life are the hardest to accomplish. Whenever you feel like giving up, remember why you started in the first place.

It seems like the problem here is you mentally putting yourself down, especially if, as you say, you actually do the excercise. What I have done to combat that is for every negative thought, I have to input a …, but… with a positive thought. Like "I feel overweight, but I know I have lost weight and I am training.", or "I feel like I can't do this excercise, but I know I have done it before!"
I hope this helps! 💜

What could you say to yourself to bring you confidence? You are committed to good health. Is it confidence that stands in the way or is it something else? Write yourself a letter of encouragement. Inside that letter find your better angel. Make a statement from that and repeat that statement every day. Commit to a better you, confident or not.

It sounds to e like you have a voice in your head that's telling you "you can't". I think wr all have that voice. I have found that as soon as that voice starts saying something negative to me, I IMMEDIATELY reply back to it with something positive. That is REALLY hard at first but the more you do it, the more your confidence will grow.. Try it. As soon as your voice says "you can't do these exercises", Tell that voice (out loud if you want to), I am more than capable of doing these exercises and they make me feel energized!. Repeat often! You will get that confidence you desire.

You are the most important person in your life, so the only person you should be worried of loosing face with is your self!. I can imagine how you feel as I was super feet a few years ago and after a very difficult time in all area I have started adding on weight up to 18 kilograms! I have tried everything to go back to my beloved discipline, but the only moment that I have managed to move confidently was when I started looking for other options.. walking alone, doing other type of exercises that made me feel better, to the go back to a more “social” training.. my suggestion is to embrace your self all the way through including when you don’t feel you can do the exercise, and in stead of giving up or bitting your self up, prepare your self with alternatives and celebrate the fact that you have helped your self out.
