Make Progress with These 3 Tips:
1) Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable
Change rarely comes as fast as we expect it to. For decades we've been sold pills, creams and gimmicks to look like the models we see on tv. The fact is, and you know this, nothing happens overnight. Talk to a coach to help choose the appropriate starting point for you and get comfortable making small changes over time, and trying your best to stick to them.
2) Eat Every 2 to 4 Hours
Eating every 2 to 4 hours does 2 things for our clients. It forces them to plan to eat and helps control their blood sugar by avoiding long periods of time without food.
Why does this help people make progress?
First, planning is everything. Eating "by the seat of your pants" will more than likely fail as a long-term solution to reaching your goal. Second, it prevents us from becoming HANGRY and eating everything in sight. When we're hungry, will power is at it's lowest leading to all kinds of funny choices. Eat frequently. It works!
3) Find A Support Network
Most videos we see of "fit" people is a lone shot of them with good lighting and perfect form. This is the biggest fitness myth that needs to DIE! It's very rare people actually reach their goals alone.
With that being said, make it easier on yourself and find friends, family or a coach to support you and hold you accountable. There are going to be times you don't feel like working out. Your friend will be there. There are going to be times you don't have all the answers. Your coach will be there. Find a community to support you to help you continue to make progress with the path is unclear.
