One of the biggest hurdles that I had to overcome in my 60lb weight loss journey was developing an exercise mindset. The desire to get fit was there, but the action plan and the exercise mindset was absent…
This is not something that is developed overnight either! This is why we see gym enrollments spike January 1st each year and then 3 weeks later, you see them plummet. These people had no CLUE what they were getting themselves into! And its not just people that go to the gym either! I lost 60lbs doing P90X and Insanity: The Asylum (at home workouts). Working out from home can be even more challenging since you dont have anyone else but yourself holding you accountable (and therein lies the problem)
So today I wanted to discuss what it takes to go from your current mindset to having an exercise mindset (if you haven’t already obtained the mindset you need to reach your goals). First though, we need to talk about the mind and why it has A LOT more to do with your physical results than you think!
I am actually going to lose some of you right here because you think getting serious results is all about hitting the weights and eating buckets of grilled chicken with a gallon of whey to wash it down…Humor me and read this entire article! I DO know what I am talking about (which I teach in my FREE 5 Day Bootcamp HERE) and I have the results to prove it…LOL, not trying to be cocking, but it gets frustrating when people (who dont have results) tell the person who DOES have results that, “you dont know what you’re talking about”…Its pretty funny!
Here are 2 things that you NEED TO HAVE before you are able to develop an “exercise mindset”:
You have tried this diet, you have tried that body by Numb-Nuts contraption that didnt work…you have come to the end of your rope and you have no other choice than to succeed. You only have one option…there is no turning to the left or right or choosing some other path…YOU HAVE TO SUCCEED because staying where you at or continuing on the path you are on right now is not working. Its killing you, literally!
One thing I have noticed about many of the people who come to me is that they always have a plan B, “just in case P90X doesnt work”…or, “just in case I cant afford Shakeology anymore”
P90X doesnt work because you didnt do it! You cant afford Shakeology anymore because you prioritize cable TV or Starbucks over your body! If you provide yourself a way out…then plan on failing! When you DECIDE that you are going to succeed and that there is no other option than to do just that…then YOU WILL SUCCEED…Then you will reach your goals!
Reaching your goal is a choice!
So many people want to blame their circumstances on why they couldnt achieve the goal they set out to conquer.
My wife was frustrated about my new lifestyle…there were plenty of arguments about food in our house! I didnt understand the nutrition plan, so I search and searched and looked into it more until it did make sense. I worked 60+ hours per week. I technically “didnt have time” to workout. I couldn’t afford Shakeology…until I stopped going out to lunch 3-4 times per week! I couldnt do the exercises in P90X as well as the people in the video…so I modified it to where I could!
You see how I took responsibility and didnt let my circumstances control my outcome.
YOU CONTROL THE OUTCOME
YOU MAKE THE CHANGES
YOU PRIORITIZE WHATS IMPORTANT TO YOU
YOU FAIL BECAUSE YOU CHOOSE TO FAIL
YOUR SUCCESS OR YOUR FAILURE IS NOBODY’S FAULT BUT YOUR OWN!
