One of the things I love most about working out is how we are forced from our comfort zones on a regular basis.
I remember reading a statistic years ago that only about 7% of Brits were regularly committed to exercise. 7%!
If that’s even close to true, it’s not hard to understand why. We humans are designed to seek comfort, familiarity, and to avoid change.
But being in the gym, under weights, and breathless, forces us to embrace the opposite of those comfortable feel
One of the major differences I see between fit people and those who aren’t is that fit people have developed something I call ‘lean habits’. For example, a person with lean habits can choose water over wine with dinner. They can walk past a bakery and not be tempted to nip in for a mince pie. They can say no to dessert most of the time without a second thought. Are lean habits easy to develop? Well, honestly, no. But they absolutely can be developed with consistent commitment
Have you ever wanted to accomplish a big goal like losing weight, starting a business, completing a large project of some kind, etc, and told literally NO ONE else about it? Have you ever stalled or held yourself back from getting started because it all just felt like too much? Have you told yourself you can’t be successful because you’ve failed in the past, and then maybe you questioned why you’d even bother?

We can feel momentary motivation and excitement over the possibility, but often, it’s followed by fear and a sense of not knowing where to start. You see, if you have a big dream or goal, getting there can feel overwhelming and even scary. Whether it’s losing 3 stone, starting a business, or even just getting yourself off of
Have you ever felt crazy stressed about a big to-do list? Whether it’s taking care of your home, losing weight, or just doing one of the many seemingly insurmountable projects or tasks life throws our way, I know you KNOW what I’m talking about. The normal reaction when facing what feels like a mountain of a task is to stall, to procrastinate. "I’ll get to it later." What ends up happening in our minds is that the ‘to-do’ becomes even bigger, more insurmountable. It gets push

As you know, your time on this planet is limited. Every single day is made up of a series of habits, behaviours, and choices that will help make your life absolutely spectacular, or they will make your life sub-par. These aren't big exciting events I'm talking about. They are the tiny choices we make each and every day. Eat vegetables and drink water, and over time, you become healthier and leaner. Choose not to exercise, move toward pain and disease. It's really that simpl
