Let me just lay this on the line for you….
You want to no why you have excess fat that you can’t get rid of even though you have tried ‘everything’?
Lets start by eliminating the people you like to blame first and narrow it down.
-It is not your mum’s fault you are fat, if you live at home I bet you’re fussy as hell with your mums cooking but more then happy to go through the drive thru on the way home from a binge drinking session every Saturday night.
– It is not your kids fault you are fat, you decide what goes into their mouth and just because they don’t eat it doesn’t mean you need to.
-It is not your partners fault you are fat, you might have shared accounts, children, pets and all that jazz but believe it or not your stomachs are actually two completely different entities and just because your partner likes dessert every night doesn’t mean you do! ***MIND BLOWN***
-It is not your jobs fault you are fat, people like to bring in delicious foods – I get that – but at what point was it your job to eat it? I don’t think that was apart of your contract?
-It is not your trainers fault you are fat, mate I’m here to help y’all out but just because you have a membership doesn’t mean you’ll instantly get a killah rig – it is called hard work and actually implementing advice given not missing sessions because it is too wet, too cold, too early, I’m sick, my sisters friends dogs brothers cousin is over. (I’ve heard it all.)
-It is not your friends fault you are fat, hanging with friends is something a lot of us don’t do enough – yet it doesn’t mean when we do get to hang with our gal pals that it needs to be revolved around food, brunch, lunch, snack whatever you call the thing where you wear yoga pants and drink lattes whilst downing giant bowls of muesli, sourdough and smashed avo.
Well I guess that narrows it down a little – if you haven’t figured it out by now it is actually YOUR fault.
You want to change? Good, AWESOME! Do it, but don’t be the person that starts every Monday and then comes up with stupid reasons as to why you can’t do it because bluntly this type of person will never change. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING if you commit yourself fully – So stop making excuses and start seeking results.
START by writing down WHY you want to change – if you have no purpose you have no motivation and no intent and will fail…again.
PLAN your attack – Source out the information you NEED to change – your trainer is a ball full of useful info in this aspect!
TELL everyone about what you’re doing – this will 110% hold you accountable for your actions, trust me your work colleagues will be more then happy to point out and say ‘should you be eating that?’
Set GOALS it may be as simple as hit x2 training session a week and have only x1 cheat meal for a month – small achievable goals will lead you to BIG successes.
Change WON’T happen over night – don’t give up because you don’t see results after a day – these things take weeks and months – it is important to track your progress perhaps via a calendar, before/after photos or measurements and even by how your clothes feel.
Know it is HARD work, if it was easy we would all be walking around looking like super models – you’ll have stressful days and weak moments but remember why you started – pick yourself up and keep going!
If you are looking for that kick up the arse HERE IT IS – GO OUT AND GET IT!!!
Stay Strong & Stretch,
