When you lose all excuses, you’ll find your results
Something I hear very often from clients on their fat loss journeys are reasons why they couldn’t train last week or reasons why they ate badly. Mostly this is down to social events, children, work being busy, stress…etc.
We have all been there. Nine times out of ten, the blame is put on someone else…
“My colleague came into work with cakes as it was her birthday”
“My husband worked late so we just got a takeaway”
“My children wanted a dessert so we all had ice cream”
Just a few examples of where we place the blame on others for our lack of training or eating well.
Of course, occasionally this is fine, but if you find yourself week in and week out making these excuses you are not going to hit that goal.
This brings me to the actual goal itself – what you are trying to achieve? Why? How will it make you feel if you do it? How will it make you feel if you don’t do it? The basics of fat loss are pretty simple – the hard part out of all of this is consistency, you have to really want something to find the willpower to be stronger than your excuses and start getting those results.
Dig deep and find your ‘WHY?’
Maybe you’ve been yoyo-ing up and down for years and need to knuckle down to finally get yourself into gear, maybe there are health reasons associated with your weight loss or you want to fit into that pre pregnancy dress and feel amazing again!
Whatever it is, do it for YOU. No one can control what you put in your mouth, so make the time for yourself and do it – for real this time! The people pressuring you to eat their birthday cake, drink alcohol and skip your workouts will be the ones asking you in a few months’ time how you did it.
