‘There’s no point making a New Years resolution to get in shape, you won’t stick to it. This is a lifestyle change.’
Fresh starts are the reason I get in shape time and time again.
Every Christmas I take a break. Every time I go abroad I take a break. By every January I’ve gained weight and by every return-flight-home I’m at least half a stone heavier.
The plane lands, the 1st is upon me, and I am refreshed, replenished, well rested, well fed, and ready to hit the ground running.
And I do. I run, and I don’t stop until I have reached my goal.
Like EVERY change in your life, it all starts with a mental choice.
As soon as you DECIDE you want to change, you’re ready to start.
No, this doesn’t mean you’re going to float through your new challenge like a seagull through a cloud on a beautiful summer’s day. There will be days when you wonder what the hell you’re even doing, and you’ll remember how much easier life was when you were complacent and your routine was effortlessly in motion.
But remember your decision, feel PROUD of your recent efforts and KEEP GOING.
If getting fit, healthy, and or in shape in your goal this year, congratulations. You are NOT a cliche, you are smart.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. CLEAN UP YOUR DIET AND PORTION SIZES
2. FIND ANY FORM OF EXERCISE YOU ENJOY AND START DOING IT 4-6 DAYS A WEEK
3. REMEMBER YOUR GOAL AND STAY CONSISTENT
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
MY 15 MINUTE FAT LOSS APP (ALSO AVAILABLE ON ADROID) WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO TRAIN AT HOME.
MY WEIGHTS 4 WOMEN APP (ALSO AVAILABLE ON ANDROID) WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO TRAIN AT THE GYM.
MY EAT CLEAN GET LEAN iBOOK (ALSO AVAILABLE ON GOOGLE BOOKS) WILL TEACH YOU WHAT TO EAT, WHEN, CALORIES, MACROS AND RECIPES. YOU PICK WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, AND FOLLOW THAT METHOD.
And you don’t need to pick me, it’s no secret that people love The Body Coach’s recipes. People find classes at the gym monumental to their ‘lifestyle change’. A lot credit getting a PT to getting in shape. There are SO MANY options out there.
Thank you all so much for your continued interest and support.
Here’s to a happy, healthy 2017.
