I bet you can’t go a single day without seeing an ad for some new “quick fix” for losing weight and getting ripped. We see fat burning pills, muscle stimulating electronics, you name it, they have it. If it’s easy and requires little time people will buy it. I’ll let you in on a little secret….those things DON’T WORK! There is no way that you will be able to take a pill or workout for 5 seconds a day and get the results you really want.
The bottom line is that REAL CHANGE comes with REAL CHANGE. To really succeed and get the results you are looking for, you must be willing to put in the work. Getting healthy and fit isn’t some one-time, stop-when-you-get-there, type of thing. You have to be willing for a lifestyle change.
Getting unhealthy didn’t happen overnight. It’s takes years to get there. I know this first hand. It’s a slow fade into an unhealthy lifestyle and it took me 4 years to gain 40 pounds and I didn’t even notice it! Getting out of shape is so easy. It takes literally no work. So should we expect that getting healthy and fit should be the same? Absolutely not. It’s going to take time and a whole lot of effort, so be patient. You won’t get there with a simple pill or 5 second abs or whatever quick fix they are trying to sell you today. It’s simply not going to happen. You have to commit to a new way of living. Yeah, 90 days of P90X will definitely get you well on your way and if you follow the plan you will see relatively quick results. Heck, in 90 days of P90X2 I lost almost 30 pounds. BUT, if you revert back to your old lifestyle at the end of 90 days, you’ll be right back where you started. You won’t undo years worth of unhealthy choices overnight, but if you commit to sticking with the program, healthy eating, and dense nutrition like Shakeology you will see great results. So throw away the scale and forget about the day-to-day changes.
Keep crushing it gang and I challenge you to commit to being here a year from now. And remember not to get caught up in the quick fixes society is trying to sell you.
