STEP 1: STICK TO THE PLAN 100%
The first thing to do is ask yourself: Have I been 100% committed to my exercise and nutrition plan? Being 99% committed to your goals provides vastly different results to 100% commitment. It may be a case of taking a step back and being honest in your evaluation.
If you can honestly say that you have been 100% committed, then it’s time to move to step 2. If you haven’t been 100% committed then it’s time to remove your finger.
Step 2: CHANGE YOUR MINDSET
Have you been training the same way, following the same nutrition plan and have the same mindset for a while now? If you have, then it’s time to mix things up. What you need to do is something different from what you’ve done previously, and the first thing to change is your mind.
Here’s some important points to think about:
1. What you are doing right now is not giving you the results that you want. It would be foolish to keep doing what you’re doing and expect different results.
2. You have to change something – it may be your nutrition, it may be your training or it may be both.
3. You need to make some sacrifices if you want results.
STEP 3: MAKE SACRIFICES
Once you’ve HONESTLY changed your mind and accepted that change is required, it’s time to determine how to do it. If your goal is fat loss, then I would suggest that diet is going to be the most important change required. I find this is also the hardest for people to accept, as it means controlling what goes into your mouth 24/7 and it also means changing habits and dietary beliefs (which some people aren’t going to like).
If your current way of eating has provided you with the results you’re after then read no further. If it hasn’t….. YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR EATING!!!!!!
It means watching everyone eat chocolate cake at morning tea while you eat a home cooked snack. It means taking your own food to the movies while everyone else orders popcorn and lollies. It means eating vegetables at every meal. It means drinking water at night when you really could do with a wine.
The big question is – what are you willing to sacrifice? What are you willing to change? and remember, this is for those of you who WANT different results.
Step 4. TRUST THE PROCESS
The final step is to stick with it, don’t start a program and think you’re going to get miraculous results in a week. Significant long term results means a long term commitment and dedication and as some famous person once said…
“Don’t complain about the results you didn’t get with the work you didn’t do”.
