Insanity

Based on this definition I seem to know a lot of people who are pretty insane

Especially when it comes to health and fitness

Here’s the cycle I see over and over again:

Go all out and pile on the pounds on holiday

Come back and jump on the latest fad diet or exercise programme

Manage to stick to it for a few weeks then fall off the wagon because it’s too bloody restrictive and makes you miserable

Then feel crap about yourself for not being able to stick to what you said you would do

And because you feel miserable anyway you comfort eat or use booze to make yourself feel better

And so the cycle repeats. The whole process will begin again in January with the new year new you bandwagon

Sound familiar?

This process is basically setting yourself up to fail

And every time you fail and don’t keep the promises you make to yourself, your self esteem gets that litter bit lower

I used to do this too so I know exactly how frustrating it is

It wasn’t until I learned about brain science and mindset that I learned a better way

Along with exercising, you need to actually re-wire your brain to create new habits

And find a way to make it enjoyable. The brain will only uptake new habits if it associates it with pleasure

Fat loss is both a mental and physical journey. Most people only do the physical bit. They spent all their time focussing on the diet and exercise and pretty much no time exploring the beliefs and mindset that is keeping them stuck. If you don’t change your mindset and create a new identity then nothing really changes. When things get tough you’ll simply revert back to old behaviour patterns

I believe this is why most people are not getting the results they want. It’s almost as if we self sabotage and get in our own way.

If this sounds like you and you are ready to try a different approach, I’m looking for 6 people for my new Make the Weight programme starting in October. Along with a structured training programme and nutrition plan, Make the Weight involves weekly mindset coaching to help you understand and change the behaviours and beliefs keeping you stuck

If you are interested in finding out more about the programme, I’m offering free consultations throughout September

If you are ready to get off the insanity cycle and stop doing what isn’t working, just hit the ink and fill out the application to book one in https://12rounds.wufoo.com/forms/make-the-weight-application/
