What Does It Take?

What does it take to really hit your fitness goals?  The perfect workout plan?  An on point diet?  Sure these things can help but do you want to know what you truly need for success?  It’s the willingness to do what others won’t.  See, fitness and achieving your goals is more about starting and sticking with it than anything else.  It’s committing to the process come hell or high water.

Sometimes we can get so consumed with having to have the right plan.  Or telling ourselves, “I’ll start when I have more time”, “I’ll start when the kids get older”, I’ll start when I have more money”,  “I’ll start when my job is less tiring”.  The truth is with that attitude you will never start.  Because if you are not willing to start now, then you won’t be when some magical “what if” happens.

You have to be willing to get up earlier, stay up later.  Take those free 4 hours on Saturday and go to the grocery store and prep food.  Take that time on Sunday to get to the gym.  It’s doing those things that yes are hard.  When that alarm goes off at 5 am and you are nice and cozy in your bed and don’t want to get up to go to the gym, get up anyway.  When you want to gorge on ice cream and that burger stop and eat something that will strengthen and fuel your body instead.

Change comes through doing these small things consistently.  And then over time the compounded effect of those consistent daily decisions to do the hard things that others refuse to do will bring complete change for you.  So get out there and start now.  You’ve got this.
