Congratulations. You are invited to Matt’s birthday party. Everyone will get presents even though its not their birthdays. And you will all get a prize during pass the parcel 😉
Ok, so today is my birthday. But what I wanted to share with you today is setting that has been getting a bit attention again in the media with all the debate about whether kids should keep score and league tables in sport at schools
And you might not like this, but here’s what this American footballer, James Harrison, said:
“I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies!
While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy.
I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned
and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…because sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy”
I have to admit…
I do agree.
I’m passionate about family life and seeing everyone around you be happy
^^^ hence why I’m always talking about NOT letting crazy diets stop you eating your favourite foods and enjoying meals out with friends and family (as I once did)
But sometimes, I wonder if trophies like this are priming us to miss the value of DOING THE WORK.
Don’t you think?
It reminds me of all these crash diets
We start the diet super motivated thinking that it’s gonna be all glitter and that when we drop a few pounds doing whatever it takes that we’ll be happy
Only to then get a harsh dose of reality when no one is there to support you and adapt your diet so you can get Transformation results once and for all.
Because just like James Harrison says…
‘trying your best’ on a cookie-cutter diet that leaves you craving all your favourite foods and burning out the motor on your Nutri Bullet…is often NOT good enough to get you the results you want
and blaming yourself does nothing!
Sometimes….You just have to get better and the best way to get better at losing weight and keeping it off?
START LEARNING HOW DIFFERENT TYPES AND AMOUNTS OF FOODS WORK FOR YOU AND FIT THEM TO YOUR LIFESTYLE
Because, whether you like it or not…Losing FAT, keeping it off…and fitting back into your favourite clothes..
Lives and dies on whether you can STICK to the ‘diet’ long-term
^^^ Meaning it has to fit your lifestyle and it not really a diet lol
And it just so happens that I teach you exactly how to do this in my simple (but not easy) Fit For Life Body Transformation Programme
I have just 5 spaces left for the 7-Day Free Trial I am giving away.

PS. Got this message from Jackie last week:
“I have lost 3 and half inches from my waist. 2 and a half inches from my hips. 1 inch from my bust. And an inch off each thigh! So very happy and best of all….
I’m feeling positive, strong and higher energy levels 😀”
And I can’t say you’ll get the exact same results. But what I will say is that there seems to be something very special about personalising a nutrition and fitness plan to your lifestyle
