“BANG, BANG, BANG”
^^^ that was warning number 1
I’d look at my friends in shock
Noticing that all of us were biting our tongues
Anticipating the full blown laughter and rebellious giggling to come
And then it happened.
One of us cracks
And all of us burst out laughing.
You might know what I’m talking about…
Dens made out of thousands of pillows and duvets
The ‘who can stay up the longest’ competition
The ‘how many skittles can you put in your mouth’ contest…
^^^ Ever tried that one?
And not to mention the TV marathon…
From testosterone filled wrestling to the lovable Fonzie…
And it’s easy to see how you might go into survival mode when it’s the kids sleepover nights
Maybe you should get T shirts made saying ‘I survived sleepover night’?
It always seemed to be the dad’s job to warn you that you were too loud…
After the first warning and rebellious giggling…
we’d hear dad’s footsteps.
They get closer
Dad opens the door.
“Can you turn the TV down. It’s getting late and you need to get some sleep”
And with a mouth full of skittles
I turn the TV right down from 24 to 18
“Now we can’t hear it…” we all cry
And this is where ‘the gradual’ tactic was invented
We agreed to slowly turn the TV down
First from 24 to 22 for 5 mins…then 22 to 20 for 5 mins…and then 20 to 18…
And you then adjust to this new level of volume and CAN hear it
Which is exactly the same when it comes to your fat loss
^^^ See, I don’t JUST ramble on. I do have scientific points as well
You see, when you put on fat and maintain this new level of weight or fat
Your body adjusts and now PROTECTS this new level fat on your hips (I know, bad news…)
Your ‘thermostat’ in your body adjusts
So whenever you try to ditch these love handles with the latest detox craze
Your body will fight you HARD
Make you feel hungry
Question whether you’re different and just don’t have the ‘willpower’ or time to do this
^^^^ ‘wronga-mundo’ as Fonzie would say
Irritable with the kids and other half
I could go on…
Because if you SHOCK your body ….it will REACT
Coach it…and it will RESPOND
And coaching your body is exactly what we do in Fat Loss Mastery
Small, MANAGEABLE changes that fit your hectic lifestyle and don’t leave you spending hours working out
Fantasising over that luscious Rocky Road….
All so that you can stick to it
Because I’ve got some good news for you
If you can stick to it…
Keep the weight you lose OFF
^^^ because you’ve created these new powerful habits that give you more ‘me’ time and the energy to actually POWER through your day without relying on your 3 hourly caffeine and sugar hit
Your body (or thermostat) will now adjust to this new LOWER fat, leaner, and more toned version of you!
And in the words of Fonzie….
There’s no more “diet starts Monday”
”Sunday, Monday, Happy Days,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days,
Thursday, Friday, Happy Days,
The weekend comes, my cycle hums
Ready to race to you
These days are ours
Happy and free. (Oh Happy Days)
These days are ours…”
Ready to follow Fonzie and co?
