You wouldn’t believe how many people come up to me and say things like “You’re so fit, I could never do it” and “You’re so healthy! I couldn’t ever give up _____(sugar/carbs/soda/etc)” or “I wish I had a body like that, but I can’t go to the gym that much”.
These things? They’re called excuses.
You Can Do Anything. You. Are. A. Badass.
I’m not here to say that you need to work out every day. Or completely remove sugar from your life. But I want you all to know that it is possible. And for heavens’ sake, I didn’t get this way overnight, nor by starting all at once!
If I were to give someone a plan to build a health-centric lifestyle it would probably look like this:
- Food First
This is so true. It really is 20% exercise and 75% diet... plus 5% attitude. 🙂
You have to clean up what you put in your body. But again, You DON’T HAVE TO DO IT ALL AT ONCE! Start with something small…like stop buying ice cream/cookies/soda. This will at least force you to leave the house to get some. Add on from there.
- Start at Home
Home workouts are great for busy parents and people who maybe don’t have the confidence to hit the gym. You can find videos on youtube, get DVD’s from Target, or find workout routine podcasts.
- Make it a Habit
This is probably the hardest step. It takes, on average, 66 days to form a new habit. That’s a long fucking time. 66 days of _______ before it just happens for you. This is the period in which the “obsessed” (as referred to by people who cannot commit…or whatever) are made or broken.
- Be Patient
The results are not going to come in a day. You won’t see it in a week. It’s going to take a little while. But you will feel amazing while you wait! Roma wasn’t built in a day and neither was your health. But if you stick to your guns and prioritize you will come out on top!
That’s what I’ve got for you. I know that it’s not much, but I hope it’s enough to get you on the right track. Please, if you need ANYTHING! you know how to get ahold of me 🙂
