Stop Wishing Start Doing: The Power of Being Present
Too often we spend time wishing and waiting for those results to come. We don't believe enough in ourselves to take action. We look at the long process and start putting excuses in our way. Fear enters and we never get moving.
The first thing to accomplishing your results is to simply take action. Remove expectations. Take it one thing at a time. I get super frustrated when I see Fitness programs that have the all or nothing approach. Your inundated with information. Coaches are asking clients to show up to their sessions and completely overhaul your nutrition and lifestyle. I would be overwhelmed too.
Let's start by being present. Let's celebrate the first choice you made. The choice to take action. You joined the gym or hired a Personal Trainer. You have taken your first step. That is something to be proud of. You stepped out of your comfort zone and decided that you come first for once.
Next, let's keep it simple. I always encourage clients to get their workout schedule sorted first. I do believe nutrition is a huge part of a total health transformation but that will come. You are busy person, you have now found time to come to the gym 3x a week or more. Get that under you belt. Progress is progress after all.
Finally, let's talk food. You are unique and so are your goals. Food means something different to each of us. It signals different results, it connects different to each of us and shares stories about who we are. We want this changes you may to be sustainable. You haven't written the whole story of who you are in one week. Therefore, nutrition can take time. It can have steps that will still promote major results. Maybe you don't eat breakfast? Now your going to take on the challenge of eating a healthy breakfast each day. As a result you may feel better, have more energy, less cravings. These are all "wins" in the progress of your health goals.
Before you see who will be at the end. See yourself for who you are right now. Be in this moment now. Take the end goal and pull it in. It is a lifestyle journey. That means taking it one day a time. Feeling and learning.
