Gooood morning, my loves!
I received an email today from one of my favorite marketing gurus with this quote in it:
"People don't do what they say they believe, they do what's convenient and then they repent." – Bob Dylan
He was referring to coaching and sales, but I IMMEDIATELY thought of how it pertains to the fitness goals we set for ourselves.
When we set out on our fitness journey, we all have wonderful goals and intentions:
"I finally want to see my abs!"
"I'm going to lose 20 pounds."
"I want to squat 250 pounds."
But despite our best intentions, our actions often contradict these goals.
I want you to take an honest look at your habits right now...
Do you choose what's convenient, even if it contradicts what you want the MOST?
Maybe your goal is to finally see your abs, but you get home from work... you're tired... you're lonely... you forgot to prep your food.
THAT MOMENT - when you're tired, when your willpower is low, when alllll the odds are against you...
THAT IS YOUR DEFINING MOMENT.
What you do in that moment defines your results: will you choose the greasy burger/fries from the drive through. Will you reach for a cookie or food you think will comfort you?
OR, will you make the best of what you have - maybe it's canned salmon and avocado because that's all you have in your fridge. Maybe it's a warm bath because you're stressed TF out *and you know it's not food you're really craving.
There's a time and a place for indulgence (SUUUUSHIIII!), but if the majority of your decisions are mindless or indulgent -- your results will reflect that.
The results you EARN don't come when life is easy and all your food is prepped and a kale smoothie magically appears from Heaven above.
It's when you're tired. Sick. Frustrated. Lonely.
But you STILL CHOOSE THE HEALTHY OPTION ANYWAY.
RESULTS > CONVENIENCE.
ALL DAY. EVERY DAY.
Sending so much love!
P.S. If you're planning to apply for the position I emailed about yesterday, please do so by Friday! I'll be doing Skype interviews next week! xo
P.S.S. It's all about balance. In this post, I'm referring to the choices you make the majority of the time. If you do get off track, make your next meal #GPF style + the best option you can.
