I think it's time we had a heart-to-heart. You say you want to change your body, your fitness or your lifestyle and you take a few steps in the right direction but then you still allow yourself to slowly slide back into old habits, back into excuses, back into the way things have always been. And then you wonder why that fitness program isn't working or that exercise routine isn't working or that diet plan isn't working. I'm here to tell you fitness is something you're going to have to commit to.

 

 You may not want to hear it. And I know we're proponents of everything in moderation and the 80-20 rule, but let's be honest with ourselves. “Moderation” sometimes becomes something that allows us a whole lot of wiggle room and a means of not making a true commitment. If you think because you train with a coach twice a week, you don't have to make any other changes the rest of the week, you're doing yourself a disservice and wasting your money. If you think you can eat one salad a day for lunch and not deal with the fitness side of life or not let yourself get adequate sleep or hydration, you're basically shooting yourself in the foot.

 

The body is a complex living system and so many factors work well together. If you're not committed to making change across all facets of your life, the results you're going to get will be minimal at best. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I know you were hoping that working out 2 or 3 hours a week was enough. I know you were hoping that one small change like cutting out your soda for water would be enough. Those things are definitely good habits to form and are worth the effort, but what I’m saying is that if you expect to lose 10 pounds a month and totally transform your body, those small efforts won’t be enough.

 

There's a reason we try to address lifestyle pieces in our coaching programs. I know it's not easy for us to hold you accountable to staying hydrated, to getting adequate sleep, to planning your meals, to say no to some of those extra sugary snacks and treats and mindless eating that you've been in the habit of doing for a decade. But I can promise you we will address it and try to coach you towards making those small changes in all areas of your life, not just in the fitness side. I'm not saying changing your life needs to be an all-consuming project, but you do need to be 100% committed on a visceral level. It's not something that has to take an inordinate amount of time, but rather a consistency of decision-making across all the different facets of your lifestyle. You have to accept how important it is.

 

 Healthy Living is not a one-hour a week effort, it's a 168 hours a week effort, so don't sell yourself short. If you absolutely want to change, get clear on why it's important to you and then get committed to changing your entire lifestyle, even if it's one piece at a time, commit to making the change across ALL the different areas. Otherwise you'll just be spinning your wheels and continue to be frustrated with the lack of results.
