I am probably going to be stepping on a few toes with this post, but it is important and necessary.
We are three weeks into 2014. Some of us are going strong. We are pressing play everyday and tracking our nutrition and learning how to eat clean. Others are either starting to fall off of the wagon or are already on the ground, having thrown in the towel. Don’t give up. It’s not too late. There is still hope. You CAN do it!
There are going to be days when working out is hard. There are going to be days when eating clean won’t be easy. It’s time to check your excuses at door. Excuses don’t deliver results. Excuses are for children. Excuses are a sign that you don’t really have control. I don’t want to hear that you didn’t have time in your schedule to do a 30 minute workout. I don’t want to hear about how hard it is to track your nutrition. I know it’s hard. I know how it feels to shortchange yourself by making excuses. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. I want you to be the best you that you can possibly be. For some of you this means drastic changes need to take place. It might mean waking up earlier or staying up later. It might mean skipping that TV show or not eating at your favorite restaurant. If losing weight, eating cleaner, getting stronger, etc. are important to you (and they should be) then you have to change. No ifs, and’s, or but’s about it. You cannot expect to put in half the work for total transformation. You must be all in, all the time. Make a promise to yourself today to no longer listen to the excuses that your mind is giving you.
Remember, you can have result or excuses, not both. Jump back in here with us and let’s continue to start the year strong. Keep bringing it team F.o.F!
