1: Don’t get hung up on other’s progress, you don’t have their lifestyle, training experience, knowledge, genetics or endless other factors. Focusing on what other people are doing will only distract and demotivate you. Focus on what you’re doing, your journey and your results.
2: Life happens and sometimes things won’t go your way, the worst thing you can do is beat yourself up about it and write the whole day/ week of. One off plan meal or one missed workout isn’t the end of the world.
3: Spend time with positive people on the same mission as you. They will support, educate and inspire you through your journey. Having that accountability will make it easier to stay on track and remind you of your ‘why’. If you want to be part of a positive group of people on the same journey jump into my ‘Life Style Design- Online group program’ Facebook group.
4: ” extremes are easy, moderation is difficult ” Something I haven’t mastered myself but I’m closer than I was when I competed. Fitness should benefit and compliment your life not detract from it. Find a middle ground between what’s optimal for your goal and what’s sustainable for you.
5: The scale is one of the worst measures of progress due to the fact your weight can fluctuate daily so much. Use the scale infrequently alongside other measures of progress such as photos to avoid getting demotivated.
