If you’re not getting the results you want when it comes to health & fitness, then you need to ask yourself a couple of tough questions –
- When things get busy, is it hard to be consistent? Are you frequently getting off track with eating well and skipping workouts?
- In the past have you tried lots of different gym memberships and diets and thought that would be the answer? But perhaps you were missing something important, something that could help make a difference.
What needs to change? Make yourself accountable to at least one other person. This is where a personal trainer, coach or workout buddy comes into the picture!
“Accountability is the acknowledgment of responsibility for your actions with the obligation to report, explain, and be responsible for the resulting consequences.”
In other words, accountability keeps you consistent because you have to report back what you’re doing—or not doing—in the gym and in the kitchen to someone else.
But if we have someone who’s checking up on us to see how things are going, we’ll get our butt in gear. Even if we don’t feel motivated in the moment.
We actually do the exercise—and eat the food—needed to look and feel great. And we do it over and over again, even when the going gets tough.
That’s why you can know exactly what to do. And you can even do it—exercise, eat good food, get eight hours of sleep—for short bursts. But you can still end up struggling.
Simply put: if you can’t be consistent, you can’t make progress.
If you want support, help and advice, to reach your health & fitness goals, ask me how!
