Summer is wrapping up, and although some of you stragglers may wait until after Labor Day to get back in the gym this applies to you as well.
After a long Summer of inconsistent workouts and even more inconsistent eating and drinking.
I’d like to give you 3 steps to getting back on track, and more importantly staying on track.
1. Goal and Deadline:
We’ve got approximately 12 weeks until Thanksgiving.
12 Weeks is more than enough time for you to totally transform your body.
The type of results that causes people to grab you by the shoulders, look straight at you and say, “I almost didn’t recognize you!You look FANTASTIC! How did you do that?”
So get your goal on paper.
“I will lose 25lbs by November 20th”
“I will Be in a size 8 in 8 weeks”
“I will wear a size 6 dress to Thanksgiving.”
Make your goal and deadline specific.
2. TAKE ACTION!
Just not random unfocused action.
Script the Critical Moves.
You know fast food, soft drinks, and long slow cardio aren’t going to help you reshape your body.
And you know there’s certain things that you CAN do that will give you the most return on your fitness and fat loss.
So you want to script a few criticial moves in advance.
1. I will track my eating in My Fitness Pal. And keep my daily calories between 1400 and 1600.
2. I will not eat anything out of a bag or a box (or in my car)
3. I will attend Boot Camp with my Buddy 3 times this week.
That’s an example of 3 critical steps that are simple yet will give you THE MOST return on your effort.
Just plan the first moves that will get you traction, because things will change but you want a visible return on your investment of time and effort.
Your critical steps will depend on what your biggest challenges are and what actions give you the most return on your effort.
3. Get Support
I read a great line the other day…
“Willpower is contagious”
You have to experience this to understand.
The more support you can get from your family, friends, coworkers, workout partners, and Facebook friends the better you’ll do every time.
It’s harder to miss when your buddy’s are looking for you.
And it’s nearly impossible to have a bad workout when you’re surrounded by others working out with you.
And research has shown that even using online support regularly will increase your success rate.
Facebook is a great place to get the support you need, and we’re just beginning to get traction with this incredible community.
So 3 things to move you into the fall looking and feeling your best.
1. Goals, because general goals produce no passion, be specific!
2. Action, script the critical few things you CAN do that will help you drop the most fat in the least amount of time.
3. Support, get some. No reason to struggle on your own with so many resources and communities available.
Take lot’s of action.
And take it right NOW!
