A quick look back
- Impatience We live in a society that is used to instant gratification, and we’ve grown to expect EVERYTHING to come to us in a nano second. When it doesn’t come the fast it’s a shock for many. Yes, I’ve seen the same infomercials that you watch that promise you a 6 pack in 6 weeks, Sorry my friend, it’s not going to happen. Repeat after me, there is no shortcut to fitness. If you grew frustrated in the past because results didn’t happen as fast as you would like, prepare yourself now for a different attitude: we will celebrate small results and you will be patient as your transformation happens.
- Lack of planning. The biggest sabotage in any fitness plan is lack of planning. I”ll be the first to admit that planning sucks, BUT as a former winger I’ll tell that once I started to plan things got much better and my results started to come. Without forethought, you can’t eat a healthy diet, get enough sleep each night and stick with an exercise routine. Starting NOW, you will plan before you start.
- Support. If you have attempted to get fit with little to no support, you are not alone. Many people try to change their lifestyle on their own. The trouble with this approach is that those around you will probably not value what you are doing. They will unintentionally or intentionally sabotage your efforts. They may resent the time you take to workout, or make you feel uncomfortable about what you are eating. They may even tempt you with these awesome words – “just this one time” or “only have one bite” This time, I got your back!!! Trust me the difference will shock you.
