How did I let myself go... this far?
After more than a year of the global pandemic, many people are finding themselves in worse shape that ever before. The stress eating and lack of exercise of the last year has really caught up for many people.
We can learn from the past, and create a new future, and all it takes is the DECISION to START NOW!
NOW is the perfect time to get back into shape, and it doesn't have to be a chore! It can actually be fun and exciting! REALLY!
Let’s change your in-front-of-the-mirror thought bubble to: "Wow, I’m on my way to feeling and looking amazing!" by reading on and taking the action steps below.
Start with Motivation: Why do you want to get fit and healthier? There must be a reason that you desire to change your body at this time in your life. Think about it until you have a very clear, very specific reason.
There is no wrong answer here. We all have our own personal motivators for wanting to achieve our best selves. What’s ultimately important is that your reason is specific and powerful to YOU.
Once you’ve determined what your motivation is, write it down where you can see it every day. Think about it. Focus on it. FEEL yourself making your motivation the driving force behind your actions.
Work on Education: You need to eat right and workout smart in order to achieve your goals. Do you know how to do this? Are you sure?
While there is more information on fitness available to us today than ever before, all of the information noise can get in the way. Don’t expect to know exactly how to get into shape by yourself.
A successful body transformation plan should be custom made by a fitness professional, like myself. I’ll take your personal information into account and will answer any and all questions to ensure your success. My goal for you is that your healthy lifestyle is sustainable. We will work together too create a plan that you love and that you will maintain.
Seek out Support: It’s time to have an honest and vulnerable conversation with the people in your life who matter the most. Let them know how you feel and where you're at. Let them know what your goal is. Let them know why this matters so much to you. Then ASK for their support.
Your success rate depends heavily on the support system that you build around yourself as you begin to implement healthy lifestyle changes.
It’s very possible that you’ll find one or more people in your life who are threatened by your desire to improve. While this can be upsetting, try to approach it with understanding. The best scenario would be them joining you, but remember that you can be true to yourself and while allowing others to do the same.
Please feel free to call or email me to get started on your body transformation. I will be your support system, your coach and the last weight loss expert that you'll ever need.
