The solution has been in front of us all along. Habits are the key to success – routine behaviors so natural you don’t need to give them much thought. Successful people adopt the laws of success by creating lifelong habits that become ingrained and as much a part of who they are as the color of their eyes. They don’t have to think about it. It’s not torturous. It doesn’t control their every conscious thought. It becomes second nature.
I want to teach you how to create habits; how to break the bad ones and create successful one. There are plenty of diet books on the market that do an exceptional job of teaching the principles of changing your mindset, shifting your thinking, and altering the way you process information to help you change your body. Awesome books built on sound research. I love the idea of changing the way you think. But where most of these books fall short is that they miss what I have discovered to be the secret to long-term happiness and sustained weight management: the application of the laws of success.
The ingredients to lasting success in any area are universal, and one of the key ingredients is our consistent action. Those actions become our habits. Those habits become our thinking. Those habits change our body. Those habits define our destiny.
Habits have nothing to do with skill, financial position, education, appearance, or gifts from God. Anyone can learn to create a new habit. The right habits are the only things that separate you from the life you want to live.
It’s very likely, however, that the life you currently have is making you fat. Oh sure, I can give you a great diet that, strictly followed, will allow you to drop megapounds, fast! If you want, feel free to skip the important stuff and jump right into another diet. If you just love the roller-coaster diet and you think the stress lines across your forehead are quite attractive, well then, be my guest and skip the important part. But if you do that, just know it’ll be like sticking a Band-Aid on a bullet wound; a temporary fix. But I think we’ve established you’re looking for a solution.
Reality check! I’m a crazy-busy devoted mom of 2, I run several non-fitness-related businesses, and I enjoy a date night with my husband. I don’t have a chef. We do have homework. There’s always some kind of emergency, or dog poop to be picked up, and I have exactly 1 hour a day to workout. I live on this planet and have the stress and distractions in my life just like you. But you need to know that your diet is a symptom. Your fitness or lack thereof is a symptom. They are not the problem, which is why addressing those areas as the solution provides only temporary relief.
I must admit that for the first 10 years of my career as a fitness professional, I too approached weight loss and fitness for my clients from the same dated perspective. I was stoked when my programs and diets worked, but mystified when 6 months later they ended up gaining the weight back or falling off the fitness wagon entirely. Then it dawned on me. I was teaching them to drive a car without ever checking to see if they knew the rules of the road. Most would reach their destination, but eventually, when I handed over the wheel, they would crash.
If you find that you’ve been stuck in the roller-coaster of weight lose and weight gain and your tired of it…please let me help you!
