Without further ado, I’m really thrilled and extremely proud to introduce to you the ALL NEW! MyBodyTutor.com! I’ll do a post later on in the week talking about what exactly we changed but for now check it out!
I also, want to help you make 2009 your most fit year yet!
So, I’m going to let you in a on a secret I discovered when I was in 4th grade. You ready?
When your actions don’t follow your desires, you’re going to be unhappy! So obvious and so simple…but so true!
I’m sure you have some sort of health and fitness goal.
Whatever you goal is, it’s extremely worthwhile because when you’re healthy and fit, it feels amazing. And life is too short to not feel amazing! Enough said.
I’ve never met someone who doesn’t want to be healthy and fit but yet, 95% of the people I meet aren’t healthy and fit!
What’s the deal? Why are so many people struggling with their health and fitness goals?
I think it’s simple: It’s because it’s way too easy to make excuses. It’s even easier to rationalize those excuses. Believe me. I know!
I quit my full time job at Ernst & Young in January of 2007 to solve this problem in a big way. (If you’re interested in reading about my story with tons of corny pictures click here. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!)
As I wrote about in this post, you need to be brutally honest with yourself. You need to stop making excuses and rationalizing those excuses.
Unfortunately (and fortunately), we’re incredibly good at rationalizing. That’s how we make sense of this chaotic and insane world. Thankfully, it’s innate. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to function.
The problem isn’t that you don’t know what to do. Because you do! (For the most part.)
It’s the doing it – that is the hard part. The day in and day out. Meal by meal. Workout by workout. I call that consistency!
Being healthy and fit doesn’t require you to read book after book. It just requires you to stay consistent week after week.
So here’s your 5 step plan for making ’09 your most fit year yet!
One: If you do have a problem staying consistent (like most of us do!) realize that lack of knowledge isn’t your problem. Thinking you need to read the latest diet book is just another excuse. Still think you lack knowledge? Here you go! 40 free, simple and easy to understand articles I wrote.
(If you don’t have a problem staying consistent then you should be in amazing shape!)
Two: Start holding yourself accountable for your own actions. It’s a great start! However, be careful of your rationalizations because they always make sense!
Three: Change! If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. What are you going to change this year? That is the question. Yes you can!
Four: Make time for yourself. Obviously you’re ambitious and want to make things happen or else you wouldn’t be on this site! But if you don’t make time for yourself (like gym time) you’ll never find time!
Would you ever miss an extremely important meeting with your client or boss!? So stop missing meetings with yourself!
Five: By far, the best investment you can make is in yourself! I know I’m biased but throwing money at the cause is well worth it. Exercise and eating right pays off big in your quality of life! Also, figure out what you really need help with.
(I have found that most people don’t need someone to hold their hand in the gym (for $60-150 per session). What they do need is someone to make sure they get to the gym and eat right.)
Your template for ’09: Be brutally honest with yourself and stay consistent.
If you need that extra push (like many of us do), check out my company, MyBodyTutor.com.
I’ve helped all sorts, shapes and types of people realize their health and fitness goals by helping them stay consistent.
Studies show that when people are about to do something they know they shouldn’t do and are forced to look at themselves in the mirror they hold themselves back. Consider MyBodyTutor your 24/7 mirror.
Consistency is the key to your success. And that’s exactly why I created my company. To help you stay consistent like no other company in the world.
