challenge

It's already yours so go for it!

Why not make sure you have all of the things in life that are yours? Unless you really enjoy sitting back and watching others get it. There's more pleasure in getting it than just wishing for it. That body that you want is yours, those amazing body transformation results are yours, those awesome before and after pictures are yours. All you have to do is go after them.

To get them, there is no correct way to start, as long as you start. Begin with a plan. Take a moment to sit alone and think about all of the benefits and how much your life will be better once you start that fat loss plan and keep going. Jot your thoughts down as well.

Next, create your own circle of support by telling your friends. This group will help motivate by cheering you on and maybe even by joining you on this endeavor. Your chance of success is better with a buddy.

Lastly, execute! Start by whipping out your calendar and setting some dates and specific times. Once you write it down and fit exercise into your calendar you have a better chance of success as well. No need to go all out immediately, fit in 2 - 3 days your first week. Then add more the following weeks.

Remember, nothing motivates like results. Get some!

Challenge Yourself for a Change

So are you stuck in the same old daily routine that you've had for a long long time now and not seeing any changes on the scale or even in your life? If the answer is yes, then it is time to as they say, shake things up a bit, especially since you are still holding on to your dreams and goals. Trust me it's hard to get to where you want to go by driving back and forth down the same road.

To breakthrough this trap, you must challenge yourself and stop doing whats comfortable. This doesn't only apply to body transformation goals but you can also apply this to other aspects of your life such as your career. For example, if you have been stuck in the same position, role or pay at work for years and want something new then think outside of the box, dig deep, get creative and figure out how you can break out of that rut. It may mean you have to look outside of the company for inspiration.

In regards to fatloss, there are many ways to breakthrough a training plateau. Some ways to do this are to train harder than yesterday, try a new training modality and to rest. I'm serious about the resting part. I remember a client who believed she had to work super hard in the gym 7 days a week to lose some inches. She definitely threw herself into a wall that she couldnt get over. The minute she took the advice to include rest days in her routine she noticed a change and was extremely happy.

Do something difficult and different today. See how you feel when you conquer it.
