I’ve heard it before… especially being in the fitness industry. Gym membership numbers go up and people decide they are now “motivated” to change. It usually sounds something like:
I am going to lose 10lbs!
I am going to start eating healthy!
Have you heard of this new fad diet? I am going to start it!
I’m going to join a gym and then I’ll have to go….
It begins and ends with this mindset. The idea that you can throw out some lofty goal because it’s close to a new year is the reason you are in the situation you are in. When we honestly look at the facts… you are where you are because of the CONSISTENCY and TIME you have spent doing things wrong. The body adapts to constant repeatable actions over time. Not one-liner goals!
Speaking these goals out [especially around the time of the year you are expected to] are not going to change a damn thing. I don’t care and won’t even begin to consider the bullshit gimmicks you are constantly pitched by the fitness industry… influencers are banking in on your insecurities by promising quick change and progress and they continue to do so again and again and again… you get the point.
If it sounds too good to be true… it is.
Ready for some actionable advice?
Change your life.
Take a step back and analyze what you are doing day in and day out. What are you eating? What does your sleep schedule look like? How often are you hitting the gym or getting outside? The irony is that you don’t need to be a professional, pay $100, or find the secret diet to receive the answer you’re looking for…you don’t want to know the real answer; that you know what you’re doing poorly in the first place and you’re either too lazy or afraid to attack these problems head on. Can a coach help? ABSOLUTELY, but not until you acknowledge the fact that you have created the situation you are in now and YOU are the only one that can change it.
How do I start?
