A fitness mindset will keep you moving forward and making progress in your efforts to lose weight and get in shape, even when you make mistakes or encounter obstacles.
THINGS YOU MUST UNDERSTAND
In order to develop a fitness mindset one of the first things you have to understand is that whatever physical shape you are in today, it is the result of thousands of habitual actions performed throughout your life.
And you have to understand that just as you didn’t get out of shape and overweight overnight, you won’t get in shape overnight either. You have to truly understand that “instant gratification” is not possible.
Most importantly, you have to understand that a fitness mindset sees life as a journey rather than a destination.
I know this firsthand because I spent many years pursuing fitness destinations.
I went on many quick weight loss diets and tried many extreme exercise programs that were successful for a short time, but were not sustainable for the long haul. As soon as I resumed my normal eating habits and stopped performing hours of exercise I gained weight and got out of shape.
It wasn’t until I read Steve Siebold “177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class”, hired a coach, and studied the mind that I really began to understand and develop my concept of a “fitness mindset.” Join my private Facebook Group Empowering Your Life to get your free copy
I've also learned an eating plan is a sustainable plan – it is not a diet. It is an eating plan for life. It is a plan that is built on sound nutritional principles and it also includes a plan for eating those foods that you believe you just can’t live without!
It really got me thinking about how to develop sustainable eating and exercise plans – how to get started and how to make them a part of my life FOREVER!
