Did you see it?

Did you see it?

Wow

It seems to be everyone (other than me)

Has been into Line of Duty…

My social media was plastered with it.

Most saying they 

Were disappointed with the ending.

“It was the best cop show ever until the end”

You’re probably thinking:

“Why are you sharing this, Matt?”

Well, 

It’s similar to what happens when we start a fitness or healthy eating kick..

We often set a goal like:

“I want to lose 2 stone by [insert date]”

“I want to get rid of my aches and pains by [insert date]”

“I want to be able to walk up the hill near my house without getting breathless and needing to stop by [insert here]”

“I want to get up and down from the floor more easily by [insert here]”

And these are all good.

They’re outcome based goals

Which could help us get out of bed and do the things we know we need to do 

^^ us “nagging” at Fruci Fit often helps as the ladies tell us 😂 

But the thing is…

These outcomes are NOT in your control.

You cannot 100% whether they happen or not, no matter what you do.

The problem with this?

There’s no guarantee 

You’ll be happy 

Whether you hit this goal or not.

And the bigger problem?

If you don’t hit it, you often thinking it’s a waste of time 

Or a let down..

“Line of Duty was the best show until the ending”

😆 

But the thing is,

Like with the entertainment you maybe got from Line of Duty

I can guarantee there were some positives with your health and fitness despite not hitting your goal ..

Be it with your fitness level 

You’re sleeping better 

Your bone density has improved (unfortunately you’ll not know about this unless you fall over and don’t break a bone….)

You’ve reduced your risk of diabetes / cardiovascular disease / certain cancers

Boosted your immune system 

More energy 

Your mental health Has improved 

Maybe clothes are fitting better..

Thing is,

We often forget about all of these benefits.

That can come from the PROCESS goal..

Aka 

Something you can control everyday. 

Which is – as we do inside our Kickstart Programme –

Track one habit at a time with your food, fitness and focus (self care)….

Have you moved today?

Did you stick to your food habit ? Your water?

Did you do something for you? 

You see…

There’s no happy ending to an unhappy journey…

 And you probably know all of this already ..

Most of the ladies on our programme know what to do already.

But knowing and not doing is as good as not knowing …

Which is why get you to do the things you know you need to do…

Which includes putting your attention on how you want to feel

And doing what you CAN do rather than focussing on what you can’t do..

And I get it 

I’ve been the same with public speaking 

And even doing what I do today..

Showing up with no one coming to any sessions..

But I just kept going ..

And that’s something that we help others do.

Keep going

And challenge their beliefs 

That they’re different 

And that it won’t work for you…
