Have you ever reminisced about how you use to be? Maybe how skinny you looked or athletic you were in your 20's? I can't tell you how many times I've had a student come to me and say "I use to be in such great shape...." or "I use to be so strong..." Here is the problem with holding on to these "use to be" feelings. They are gone and don't exist anymore. In fact this mentality could be holding you back. Your body and mind is completely different today. Things change and the workout along with the eating patterns which may have worked for you in the past, most likely won't have the same effect now. If you hold on to the "how you once were" mentality then it's very hard to move forward and grow. They key of knowing where to go and how to get better, is to know where you are NOW! Never jump in to something thinking you are the same person from the past or assuming you are some where that you may not be. Have I lost you?
