Have you ever told yourself that you are going to lose weight and get fit in time for spring, only to be frustrated when warm weather rolls around?
I get it. It’s easy to hide behind fall and heavy winter clothes, but when the mercury starts climbing, the clothes get lighter and we can’t hide anymore : (.
Then we start to say….“Why didn’t I start working out weeks ago?” we ask ourselves. “If only I had started sooner!”
“A Year From Now, You Wish You Had Started Today.” Karen Lamb
The best way to protect yourself from a regret-filled spring is to set a deadline and start NOW. Deadlines are powerful motivators. Without a deadline, you really have no set-point toward which to work. You have nothing pushing you. We need to be pushed.
Deadlines create a sense of urgency. They help you position yourself to succeed, because that final date is always staring back at you. It forces you to prioritize and strategize. Otherwise, you will let things slide…you will keep putting off the workout, and insisting that tomorrow you will start eating better.
It’s time to shake things up
Get your calendar out and decide when you want to see your first wave of results. Be realistic: make sure you give yourself time to really dig in and see changes. But challenge yourself too—make it a little tough so you can take full advantage of the power of urgency.
If you train with me, more exercise likely isn’t what you need to work on…it’s your diet. Tough love I know, but remember.
If you want the scale to weight to go down, eat less.
If you want a lean, athletic look you need to eat lean protein and veggies.
Regardless…Go be awesome!
