This Fitness Thing…Get in the game!

Super Bowl weekend is here!

I want you to enjoy this weekend to the fullest! Fitness can be fun, it should make you feel happy and proud.

Make a promise to yourself that you will enjoy guilt-free. If you have all the guacamole and chips you desire, buffalo wings, and a few of your favorite adult beverages, so what? Your fitness goals and healthy lifestyle will be there come Monday. It’s not a competition, no end goal or score to make here. There is not a day, time, month, or year at which you need to achieve or arrive at your perfect life or fitness level. No need to stress or rush to the finish line. Consistency over perfection. This is the long game here, you are playing for life. It’s not for 90 days, 30 days, or until you complete the juice cleanse. This game is for life and fitness is forever.

Now, let’s get your mind into the game. There is nothing wrong with ‘falling off the wagon’ when making a healthy habit lifestyle change. For everyone except the perfect one, it is guaranteed you will fall off, be forced off, or voluntarily step off at some point. Have a plan in place for this play.  Make a promise to yourself that you won’t use it as an excuse to say, “I can’t do it” and quit. Replace that thought with an affirmation or a new thought.

Affirmations will change your brain. Neuroplasticity is the science of rewiring the brain with reactions and thoughts. A 30-day juice diet won’t reset anything but your metabolism, leaving you with the same mindset. As we become older, it becomes harder to change our thoughts. Now is the time to learn a new way, a new thought pattern.

I get so excited when my clients have a breakthrough in thinking. This training and coaching season has been amazing with many client breakthroughs. When given the ball, they scored. I feel I have won the super bowl! Having the privilege to train and coach people from all different walks of life and locations, I am clearly moved as I witnessed this real and lasting change. We can talk macros, meal plans, and weight all day, but until a client is ready and willing to show up at practice and do all the work, everything is temporary. Whether it’s undereating, overeating, or poor nutritional choices, mindset and diet is the main game when it comes to health and fitness.

Keep in mind when you see all the before and after pictures that flood social media, what you can’t see is a mind change. You can’t see is if there was a healthy mind change or not. You can’t exercise your way out of an old mindset. It will catch up to you when you least expect it.

“I can exercise with regularity, but don’t ask me to change my diet.”  

“I’m not ready for that part of the program.”

And then one day for one reason or another, something changes. When the shift happens with a client, I get goosebumps! When I can hear and see the difference in clients and the way they see their life and fitness, I know we have arrived at a new level of thinking. The super bowl of athletic minds. If you have a body, you are an athlete. These are the REAL RESULTS!

I love when change lasts a year, two years, a lifetime. Wisdom comes with consistency. Nothing is more heartbreaking than seeing all the weight come back on. That won’t be you, not this time. Get in the game and stop sitting on the sidelines. Nothing is more important than your health, no more excuses. Learn to live healthy and happy. YOU CAN DO IT!
