Take action… the right way!

With January more than halfway through things are steaming up.

 

You, in particular.

 

The motivation of the ‘new year’ is waning and it’s back to routine. The goals you set for this year are still there… but is it a dream?

 

Not in this house!

 

That’s exactly why we themed this month as ‘Taking Action’.

 

You are more than capable of reaching your goals, with your combined effort with our support its possible.

 

You just need to take the right type of action.

 

Let your eyes ponder over the above graph.

 

Person A is excited for the new year and decides to change everything at once. They hit the gym hard (maybe too hard?), drastically cut calories and refuse to go out with friends.

 

Yes, they make progress. But it doesn’t last.

Soon, the rebound occurs and they are back to square one.

 

You are Person B.

 

You start a little slower. It’s manageable. You and your trainer have discussed the long-term goal and you realise it won’t happen overnight. This allows you to be consistent and, as the graph shows, make more progress.

 

The likelihood of you reaching your goals this year is not predicated on how hard you can go in the short-term. It’s how long you can keep going.

This directly comes from understanding what’s manageable. Commit to the things you know you can keep up.

 

It could be 3 gym sessions a week and eating 4 healthy meals a day (with no snacking).

 

It could be 4 gym sessions a week and counting every calorie.

 

We are all different.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing. It only matters that you’re Person B, slowing chugging away, building momentum and achieving real, sustainable results.

 

You’re more capable than you realise.

 

Take action on the things which matter. Build out your sustainable plan and commit to it.

 

Enjoy the results!
