Tell me if this sounds familiar….
The New Year is approaching, or the Summer starts to roll around, and you get super motivated to change your body.
You do your research, you start a new diet, and you are off to the races.
You wake up early, have a good breakfast, hit the gym, and then start your day.
You come home after work, have a super healthy dinner, and then get ready to do it all over again.
With day one in the books, you are feeling pretty good.
You worked out and you ate healthy….
Day two? Same thing….
You are 100% focused and committed. You are determined to ensure this time, is the time you finally get the body of your dreams.
Day three is just as good as the first two days…..you are on a roll.
But then…. day four rolls around.
You are still committed but its getting harder to stick to this new diet.
By day five your motivation is starting to fade.
You’ve had a stressful day and you want nothing more than to eat your favorite cookies.
You tell yourself you will have just one….
But one quickly turns into two, two into three, and before you know you have eaten the whole box of cookies.
Now you feel like a loser, beat yourself up, and decide to quit….
Does this sound like you?
If so, please know that you are not a loser.
You are human, and this has happened to just about everyone who has ever tried to lose weight.
So you are not alone in this my friend.
The key is to learn from your mistakes so you can do better the next time around.
So what is the ultimate weight loss killer?
Trying to do everything right and then quitting when you have a slip up.
Instead of trying to do everything perfect, start slowly by changing one habit at a time.
If you haven’t been to the gym in years, don’t all of a sudden start going 7 days a week.
This leads to overwhelm which will ultimately lead to you quitting.
Start by working out just 3 days a week.
And it doesn’t need to be anything extreme. A simple 5 minute walk is enough to get you moving in the right direction.
Instead of trying to cut soda out completely, why not start by cutting it out of just one meal?
Doing it this way greatly improves your chances of actually sticking with these new changes you are trying to make.
Always remember that weight loss is a process, and that process takes time.
Focus on making progress, and not trying to be perfect.
Your task for today is to pick just ONE meal you want to make healthier.
It could be breakfast, lunch, or dinner….it really doesn’t matter.

There’s an old saying, “How Do You Eat an Elephant?”
“One bite at a time!”
That’s how you should approach your fitness journey.
Take small consistent steps everyday to where you want to be.
Its going to take some time….
But if you take those small steps everyday, you will eventually get to your goal.
And the interesting is, once you get to your goal, you will look back and realize it didn’t take as long as you thought.
