Hope you’re having a great day!
Sometimes the “what if’s” stop us in our tracks from moving toward our fitness goals.
What if I can’t eat this or that on the program?
What if I’m the fattest person in the room?
What if I’m asked to do an exercise I can’t do?
What if I fall over and die from fear and embarrassment?
These kids of “what if’s” will hold you back from reaching your goals.
And the fact is…you have to be agressive and kill them with the only cure.
Have you heard of the phrase? “Action alleviates anxiety”
I like that phrase and I see it at work all the time.
A new client will be super nervous before we begin and 5 minutes into the workout they’re focused and in the zone…And all the “what if’s are gone.”
The action alleviates the anxiety.
So today I want to share 5 steps with you from a guy named Dan Kennedy.(you may see some ofhis quotes in my emails sometimes)
He’s not a fitness expert he’s more of a take action, get it done expert.
He has his own weight loss success story. 6 years ago after being told he was on the road to type 2 diabetes. He immediately change his diet and kicked in an exercise program with the help of Dr. Cooper from the Cooper clinic.
He quickly peeled off 45 pounds. By keeping that off and watching his carbs and blood sugar he’s been able to keep the diabetes under control without medication.
Here are his action steps to getting more done.
You can definitely apply these to your fat-loss get in shape goals and you’re going to see much better results in less time. I’ll give you his step then how you can apply it to fat loss.
Dan Kennedys action steps to get more done.
1. Start Immediately–Once you identify something you want, start immediately
(Join our bootcamp or PT program now! Join a gym and start working out Monday not next week. Thinking time is over action time is here)
2. Take Visible Action– So others know you’re serious
(clean out all the junk food from your kitchen, tell your co-workers you’re not available from 5-6 M.T. TH-you’re working out and it’s not negotiable)
3. Take Simultaneous Action, Not Sequential– Do lots of things at once
(Start eating better and exercising at the same time. Exercise without a change in eating leads no where. Dieting without exercise is slow and you end up skinny-fat)
4. Be congruent with what you say
(Tell everyone you know you’re going to lose 10 pounds in 30 days. Your friends will support you will help and cheer you along the way. Your frenemies can stew while you hit your goals.)
5. Leverage Work- Rather than doing new work all the time
(Food journals work because you can always refer back to what was working. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel. You just need a good day or week to work off of.)
So there’s your 5 steps you can take now to ward off the “What if’s” and get moving in the direction of your fitness goals.
Take action, take lots of action, and take it right now!
