So frequently people join a training program and they want to make GIANT gains. They want to go full out in the first few training sessions and they want to 'get fit' in the first week.
While it is good to have a lot of motivation and gumption early on - we would rather have you channel all of that energy into DECIDING that you will be consistent over the long haul.
This is the ONE THING that is going to set you up for a lifetime of healthy living. No more on the wagon off the wagon. No more all or nothing. No more yo yo. No more deprivation. No more.
Just consistent effort over time. The tortoise, not the hair. This is mindset that will transform your life. You don't have to 'kill' any one training session - you have to keep showing up day in and day out slowly making progress towards your goals.
So many people only want to show up if they can give 120% effort. But the secret is - what really matters is the days when you show up when you didn't want to and all you've got to give is 2%. That builds character. That builds gumption. That builds trust because you've made a promise to yourself and you've kept it.
And you know what - after consistently showing up - you will want to ramp up the intensity - your body will be ready for it and it will feel really good and soon yesterday's 120% effort is todays 2% effort.
Make your training sessions like brushing your teeth. It is just what you do to take care of yourself. You don't argue with yourself about brushing your teeth or not - you just do it.
Decide right now to just show up. Show up when it is hard. Show up when you don't want to. Show up and keep showing up.
*This is part of the mindset component that we are incorporating to our new Online Course called Own Your Health (launching February 2021). Let me know if you want more information! It is going to be amazing!
Lots of love,
