You’ll get 70% of your results from this

There I was getting excited for the wave machine and finding myself showing off about going down the dome slides and rapids to my pregnant wife at the swimming pool haha

Now, despite nearly drowning in the waves…the dome slides just didn’t seem as fast and exciting as they used to be… 

UNTIL..

I remembered a few wise old words from my brother-in-law:

‘lean up on to your shoulders and heels when going down the slide’

And WOW…do you shoot down faster than a glass of red on a Saturday night…

My point?

Just this simple, little tweak completely changed my whole experience…even though I was on the exact same thing that I found slow and boring just 2 minutes ago….

And sometimes it’s just this simple shift in the way you think that can help you get started.

Get away from “but what if I’m not good enough’

And towards ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to find out?”

I mean, when you think of all the things that have gone wrong in the past, am I right in saying they’re rarely as bad as you thought they’d be?

And you’re still here, so that’s something.

So, how can you get started today?

1. Whenever something negative happens, flip it, and ask ‘how can I use this positively?”

Example: You did so well then ended up eating a few bags of crisps and a cookie before bed.

Solution:

a) Are you actually over your food target for the day? If no, well you’ve still done well and eating this so-called bad food, may actually benefit you…at least psychologically to stick to this

b) Would it be easier for you if it wasn’t in the house?

c) Do you feel it would be benefit if you  put these foods you love in your day and allowed for them? AKA is it the guilt about having the food that’s the issue or the food itself?

2. Batch cook on a Sunday (or any day that suits) so you have at least enough for the next day or so (this is still progress)

3. Put a portion of protein on your plate at each meal  (lean meats, dairy, fish, eggs, quorn, beans, eggs)

4. Don’t compare ACTUAL progress to IDEAL progress  (if you forget this, it’s a sure fire way to set yourself up to fail)

Accept where you are NOW. Your current situation. Lifestyle.  Then, only look at how far you have come from THAT moment rather than comparing yourself to the BEST results you could have possibly got if life didn’t get in the way. You know, emails, work, kids, family etc. 

After all, you’ll probably get the results you want, or at least be about 70% there (which is closer, right?) by simply showing up everyday and being consistent…even if it isn’t perfect..
