The devil truly is in the details, or in the case of fitness it’s in the consistency.
People seem to think they can do 4-6weeks in the gym, lose their excess weight (some can) and then that’s it, they never have to do it again….
*Frustrated Sighs of Disbelief.
Life doesn’t work like this. It’s never worked like this and it never will.
Have you ever heard the saying “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got.” because in the case of fitness/health it’s very very true. People spend a lifetime making poor choices and then expect to miraculously remedy their alignments in 4-6weeks so that they can then spend another 10 years eating too much and making more poor choices.
No, just no.
Another common problem people exhibit is that they live in the past. How many times have you heard someone say, or you yourself even said “When I was XYZ age – usually 16-21- I looked like this. I just want to get back to that and I’ll b e happy.” Well guess what buttercups, it’s not going to happen because you’re not longer 16, 21 or even 30 in some cases. You’re older, your body has changed and theres nothing you can do about it, well, actually you could go to the gym, train hard, make sensible food choices, eat according for your goals and make a lifestyle change so that you can be the best your body will allow at your current age but that’s probably too much effort.
A harsh truth? Yes, but a necessary one. Life moves on, all glories must fade and YOU must understand that as you age things change, there for so does your training. If you’ve always trained hard, eating accordingly then you will almost always have a decent mental and physical health, if you haven’t then there’s no sense in crying over spilt milk, you probably didn’t need those calories anyway.
Our intention is not to be mean or put people down. However it’s time that people stop pussyfooting around and start being honest with themselves, after all, the only person who can make a real change in your life is YOU.
