The struggle is real and that’s no joke. When it comes to truly having a health and fitness lifestyle the majority of people struggle. Let’s face it, if it were easy then everyone would already be crushing it and our society would look a lot different.
The thing I see most often is the when it doesn’t work or isn’t easy let’s just throw in the towel in frustration. That’s the very mindset that breaks my heart. Exercise and Nutrition are not a one size fits all kind of thing. What works for one person may not work for another. The key is to keep tinkering until you figure out what works for you. You could say nothing works for me so I guess that’s what I’ll do. I would call shenanigans on that though.
One of the areas this is most prevalent is with nutrition. Everyone wants a done for them program and when it doesn’t work the mindset is that this program just doesn’t work or what’s wrong with me that I can’t do it. When that happens so many people just quit and that’s the mindset I’m trying to change. Instead of admitting defeat we need to assess, adjust and reengage. Everyone can find success but it’s rarely just handed to you.
The difficult part is how do we adjust and reengage when it doesn’t work? The reality is that’s when you need to be part of a fitness family like we are here at Absolute. My mission is to help you with those adjustments and to help you stay engaged or reengage in the process.
Never just give up. Life is too short and the repercussions of giving up are dramatic. You might not feel them today or tomorrow but when they come it’ll be too late.
Please let me know how I can help you succeed and let’s make 2018 great again:)
