Replica of 1 x kg of Body Fat.
Think about what will happen if you continue to lead a sedentary lifestyle.
Well, the above picture will increase to more than 1kg, in fact, it will keep rising the more you decide the couch & overeating is more important to you than getting off your butt and moving again to improve your health.
It really is that simple.
OK now, here is the space I have left for you to put your excuse in why you cannot exercise regularly _________________________.
Am I right? Did you straight away come up with an excuse why you cannot exercise?
The only thing stopping us is ourselves, and our excuses. The real question is, how do you start to make a change?
By turning your shoulds into musts
Instead of saying “I should exercise” or “I should eat better”, you need to
change your current thought patterns to:
“I MUST EXERCISE”
“I MUST EAT BETTER”
“I MUST START TODAY”
“I MUST GET FITTER AND MORE HEALTHIER”
Change your current associations to exercise (for example, that exercise = pain or discomfort) to a positive.
Focus on the pleasurable results you will get by exercising regularly and choosing healthier eating options.
How do we do that?
By getting enough leverage to change. You need to come up with enough reasons why you must change and you must change now to tip the scales the other way. Whatever ‘reasons’ you have now for not exercising need to be seen for what they really are – excuses.
What about your loved ones?
Do you want to see your children grow?
Do you want to live a long and healthy life?
Do you want to burden them if in fact you do get sick?
Do you want to be a burden on the health system?
You have got to interrupt your current negative pattern of association to
exercise and healthier eating.
One of the ways I have taught people in the past is to take a picture of
yourself naked and place it where you can see it!
YES, that’s right!
If you cannot face looking at your self in the mirror, put a
picture where you can see it every day so it will scare you into
WARNING – take it down when you have friends over, or you may never see them again.
