You did not become overweight and out of shape from one bad meal, one bad day of eating, or even one bad week of indulgences. 🍕
It's a cumulative process folks. 📈
Same goes for taking the leap to get healthy.
Nothing happens magically overnight! 👉🏼 IT TAKES TIME
Look at someone who you admire for being in shape.
Do you think they got that way from working out every now and then or eating healthy when they “felt like it?”
They decided to change something that was not working in their life. They flipped the script & upended their daily habits.
In order to change you MUST do something different!
Do you know the number one reason why people don’t change or grab hold of their health and fitness goals....any dream or goal for that matter?
I can tell you it’s not because they’re lazy. It's FEAR!
Fear of feeling out of their comfort zone
Fear of failure
Fear of attention
Fear of what others will think
Fear of success
When there's any type of inner conflict what do we normally end up doing? 🤷🏻♀️
Yep! we take the path of least resistance - the easy way out.
Because we don't like being uncomfortable. I can tell you ultimately most of us want to be & do better but we’re scared of the outcomes.
So...if we are SUCCESSFUL in our endeavors that means we can't fall back on old excuses & habits can we? We'll HAVE to hold ourselves to a higher standard. We'll HAVE to deal with those feelings of self doubt instead of covering them up with food, partying, procrastination, or whatever your scapegoat happens to be.
Maybe it's scary to start acting like the person you want to be instead of "hoping and wishing" that you’ll become that person someday?
I know....it's heavy stuff to deal with you guys but anyone who's made it to the other side of any important goal they’ve set for themselves has had to ask themselves these same tough questions.
❓🙇🏻♀️ Do any of these mental roadblocks sound familiar to you?
Share your thoughts with me. Sometimes it helps to just let it out!
