The secret to getting the results you want…

The secret to getting the results you want…

“We need to read the book you chose”

I say to my 4 year old daughter who brought home a book from the library.

And as much as I too was feeling pretty tired  (like she was) and had stuff to do…

Having a book and not reading it is as good as not having the book…

And it’s the same when it comes to getting in shape, toning up, getting fitter, and feeling control of your food again.

You can have all of the information in the world, but unless you do something with it?

It’s pointless.

It is as good as not knowing….

So if you are reading this thinking:

“Yep, I know what to do already”

^^ as nearly everyone says to me

Then I hope this will help you today

After all:

If you want a FUTURE which doesn’t look like your PAST, you have to make different choices in the PRESENT  💝

^^^ read that again. In fact, write it down. Most people will nod their heads and think ‘ye that makes sense’…only to go back to default habitual decisions which keep them stuck later in the day.

So today I wanted to share a few tips. 

1- Do not wait for the perfect time → most people around this time of the year think it will be easier in January…

When it is colder, you have leftover chocolate, and dark outside like it is now, but without the Christmas lights…

The problem with this?

You might be 1-13lbs heavier…

You might now have more to lose which makes it harder..

Those small habits will be harder…

Habits so small that you might even be thinking they are pointless right now:

You know, like that 10 minute workout..

Getting your water in

Getting your protein and fibre in.

The simple things which if you did?

Would mean you probably never need a crash diet again.

So start now.

No matter how small.

As the only thing that exists is now.

Does the choice you are making today fit with what you say you want or fit with what you say you don’t want?

I will say it again:

If you want a FUTURE which doesn’t look like your PAST, you have to make different choices in the PRESENT  💝

2 – Enjoy yourself during this time – Have a plan. I can give you the best plan in the world, but unless you are 10/10 confident you can do it, then you need to change the plan. 

Keep it simple, as simple gets done.

Is it:

Filling your plate with protein and veggies first when eating out?

Allowing yourself to put on x amount of weight as long as I keep my exercise up?

Is it making sure I stick to higher fibre and protein meals around my meals out?

Planning your snacks in advance?

Truth is, most people will do nothing with the above..

Maybe they will read more..

Wait for January..

I am challenging you to be different..

Rather than read more..

Wait for longer..

Act on it today .

If you want to drink more water in January..

Do it now.

If you want to lose fat in January ..

Start now…(it’s easier than waiting and having more to lose…especially if you are someone who is motivated by seeing results fast…)

If you want to start exercising more..

Start now.

If you want to develop a better relationship with food…

Start now.

It will be easier …

You will be in a better place when Christmas comes..

This is why we have opened up our Pre Christmas Fit Challenge, specifically for women 40+ and 50+ who pretty much know what to do but want the accountability and plan to do it.

Reply with ‘Christmas’ and I will get you the details. 

Anyway, I will be like a broken record and leave you with this:

If you want a FUTURE which doesn’t look like your PAST, you have to make different choices in the PRESENT  💝
