Approx 80% of people who start a regular training program after New Year will GIVE UP by the end of February if they haven’t already.
(this may vary depending on what resources you look at but either way the percentage is super HIGH).
That means only 20% will actually get the chance to SEE and FEEL real changes to their body, health, fitness and lifestyle.
Only 20% are going to have more ENERGY, feel more CONFIDENT, feel FITTER and feel HAPPIER in themselves.
I don’t know about you but I find that sad, quite scary but unfortunately NOT surprising.
Crazy diets + drastic lifestyle changes = FAIL
Quick fixes do NOT work!!
If someone tells you they have a ‘quick fix’ they’re LYING.
Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your dream body.
Small changes on a daily basis + consistency = lifelong RESULTS!
Now today is a NEW day, NEW week, NEW month and a FANTASTIC opportunity to chase your goals!!
NOT everyone will take advantage of this opportunity and NOT everyone will achieve their goals.
The Good News?
I’m going to help make sure YOU are not one of those statistics!!!
There is absolutely NO reason why you can’t have the body, fitness and happiness YOU want and deserve but in order to SUCCEED you need to break everything down into bite size goals.
If you don’t workout at all – aim for 1-2 times per week.
If your workout twice a week – aim for 3-4 times per week.
SLOWLY introduce more exercise as you work this into your lifestyle.
And my TOP TIP??
Do exercise you ENJOY!
If you don’t like something DON’T do it.
Keep it short, fun and varied.
If you REALLY put to know how to FUN into fitness and your in Aberdeen
Check these out:
If you’ve got GOOD food in the house, you’ll eat good.
If you’ve got crap in the house, you’ll eat crap.
EAT crap = FEEL like crap.
And don’t over complicate things, here’s 8 simple tips I posted last week:
1. Eat 3 meals a day.
2. Eat protein at every meal.
3. Go easy on the fruit.
4. Load up on veggies.
5. Stay away from ‘low fat’, ‘fat free’ products.
6. Cut down on sugary processed crap.
7. Limit alcohol (aka ‘Fat Juice’).
8. Aim for a min of 2 litres of water a day.
Need a little more help?
We have approx 70,000 thoughts a day.
How many of YOUR thoughts are negative?
I’m fat, I look ugly today, I’m not good at this, I’ll never be able to do that.
IMAGINE if you turned them into POSITIVE ones???!
It won’t magically happen overnight but the more you TRAIN your brain to think more positively the more AUTOMATIC it will become.
Here’s 5 simple tips how:
1. Put a POSITIVE screen saver on your phone.
(perhaps your fave quote that makes you smile).
2. Put a HAPPY picture by your beside.
(reminisce on those feelings of happiness as you get up each morning).
3. Stick MOTIVATIONAL postets to your mirror.
4. Make a HABIT of starting every day with a positive thought.
(this is surprisingly powerful).
5. Make a habit of listing 3 things your THANKFUL for that day before you go to sleep.
You’re ALIVE, you’re BREATHING, life is at your fingertips so instead of looking in that mirror and jumping on that negativity train of self destruct, tell yourself:
‘I’m grateful to be alive and today’s going to be a GREAT day!’
Time to put ‘Feel Good Feb’ into 1st gear : )
