I am sure no one reading this has ever felt like you kept working towards something and weren’t seeing results fast enough.
I mean we all just see fat melting off our bodies at rapid rates, right?!
I know I am like most and we want results yesterday. No matter if it’s fitness/health goals, life goals, etc. Things never happen overnight.
I was having a great conversation with a couple clients after a “fun” cardio workout, and one of them said she never set out to lose over a 100 lbs.
I kind of stood there for a second taking that in.
She came to us originally to get in better health. Then she set small 6-week goals with her personal coach. Each assessment went by and it was another 10 pounds, another 10 pounds, and then she was under 200 pounds. Then in just over a year, 100 pounds were gone.
Losing any kind of weight takes intentional work. Whether it’s 10 or 100 pounds, it takes setting up a plan and executing it daily.
It is not when you feel like it, it’s not when all weather conditions are perfect; it’s a daily intention.
We continued talking, and we all agreed to make sure our a.m. workouts happen. We had to pack the bag the night before, get up, get moving, AND push all thoughts of “I really don’t want to do this” out of our head.
We all have them, myself included.
There have been many mornings when I’ll sit down at my computer writing or reading something, sitting in my fuzzy robe with a warm cup of coffee, and the thoughts run across my mind to just stay nice and comfy vs going and sweating!
BUT those thoughts have to get pushed out of your head immediately because I know my workout won’t happen if I don’t get it in first thing.
Everyone has a time that works for them. It is doing it.
Each day we eat reasonably well we win.
Each day we move our bodies we win.
Each day we feed our minds with positive things we win.
Then when those days start adding up we start to see the fruits of our labor. The trick is having multiple days of wins adding up.
I know it all sounds so simple. I know those 100 pounds did not just fall off because she said, “fat be gone!” But I physically saw the daily effort, the struggle, the pain, the working through different challenges of life, and each day she won small insignificant victories that added up.
What can you do each day to win?
Start small, be consistent, and push limiting beliefs out of your mind.
It is always worth it in the end.
Also, if you ever need to jump on the phone and talk I am available.
Having a personal coach motivate you and hold you accountable is what we do.
This can be overwhelming; we get that. Also, there is no “good” time to start. There will always be something, but don’t let time keep passing. You have lots of life to live no matter how many days we have, so do it to the best of your ability!
Get after it today! WIN!
As always, reach out if you need help.
