So I’ve noticed something really positive recently ☺️
I had a call with a lovely girl called Rebecca yesterday who told me she wanted change to her lifestyle but in a way she could maintain forever, she didn’t want to feel like she was dieting and it was important to her to enjoy the process. She had no Interested in a 6 week blitz nor did she ask me to get her as lean as I could by yesterday! .
And Rebecca is not the first, it’s something I notice with a lot of the girls I work with . A complete change in mindset where they no longer have that ‘end goal’! We are starting to realise that these quick fixes aren’t worth the pressure let alone being maintainable. .
I’ve been there...set myself a specific amount of time to get as lean as I could, and convinced myself that I would only be happy when I got there (picture 2). Was I happy yes, but i STILL had my insecurities! And actually what I was left with a completely unmaintable physique that I would now forever compare myself to. Don’t get me wrong, I believe there is a time and place for challenges like this, I’m not against testing your limits, but you need to be in the right mindset of knowing it’s not a lifestyle, and not set this as something to achieve the first day you step into a gym
These pictures show a very different time in my life and a very different mindset.
1️⃣ The first - the first day I decided to make a change (6yrs ago)
2️⃣ The second - ‘get me lean by yesterday’
3️⃣ The third - my current situ, eating towards my long term, healthy and maintainable goal and enjoying life 👌🏼
My point it that right now people are starting to realise that these quick fixes aren’t actually the solution to what they are looking for. It makes me sooooo happy to hear that we are starting to be more realistic with our goals, not putting a time limit on our progress and actually making sure we invest in a process that is enjoyable and maintainable 🙌🏼 so a big shout out to everyone promoting that message ☺️
