Eat too much this weekend? Upset with yourself? Read this.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Just so you know…
It’s not IF we’ll indulge. It’s not IF we’ll eat more than we’d like to. It’s not IF we’ll have a lousy workout. It’s not IF we’ll miss a workout from time to time. It’s not IF we’re not as productive as planned. It’s not IF we’ll have a less than “perfect” day. It’s not IF we’ll get down knocked down…
Because we all will.
And it happens!
It’s about one thing: How quick are you going to get back up?
What if every morning we read a list of why we want to be healthy and fit?
To think you’ll never “mess up” is simply setting unrealistic expectations.
Why do we set unrealistic expectations?
Because it’s a defense mechanism…
If we can’t be “perfect” why bother, we think.
But we know perfection doesn’t exist. PROGRESS does though!
Aiming to never “mess up” is giving ourselves an easy out. An easy out from what you wonder?
Well, change is uncomfortable. There’s no way around that. (I sincerely believe (and know!) that having support and accountability makes it way more tolerable.)
So when the discomfort gets…uncomfortable…aiming for perfection gives us a way to escape the discomfort.
“Ah, I messed up! There goes perfection!”
“Screw it, I’m going to quit because I can’t do this…”
And just like that we escape the discomfort of even TRYING to change.
Instead of focusing on the discomfort, try to focus on WHY you want to be healthy and fit. And instead of aiming for 100% on every meal – aim for consistency.
“In baseball, my theory is to strive for consistency, not to worry about the numbers. If you dwell on statistics you get shortsighted, if you aim for consistency, the numbers will be there at the end.” – Tom Seaver
If you don’t have a system of support, accountability and a way to monitor and track your progress how can you expect to get the body you want? You can’t. You’re simply just hoping and wishing.
