What’s the ONE THING?
Making a change is hard. Truthfully, it is really hard.
Most people I come in contact with tell me how difficult it is to either lose weight, make it to the gym or improve their fitness in one way or the other.
They’re right. It is hard. They’re busy. They’re stretched thin. They’ve tried before and failed. They don’t know where to find answers. They can’t afford it. Etc, etc.
If that’s you saying those things, then fine. You’re probably spot on with most, if not all, of those
BUT instead of saying ‘SCREW IT’ and giving up altogether, why don’t you try doing that one thing you know you can manage.
Trying to lose weight? Start with recording what you eat. That’s it. Just one task. If losing a few pounds is your goal, then take the initiative to start by writing down (in a journal or better yet, in the app My Fitness Pal) everything you eat. Seems easy, but it will take a little work. Not much though. And it will be worth it. You need to know where you’re at to make a plan for where you want to go.
How about getting (back) into shape? What’s that one thing you could do to start your journey back to fitness? Start with making workouts a consistent part of your routine. Go to the gym or do them at home. Hire a coach or use google for “no gear crossfit workouts”. Whatever the method, just start by doing 10-20min of workouts 3-4 days per week. Something is better than nothing. Take action!
Maybe you struggle with sleep. Or you struggle to wake up early and not snooze 13895 times. That one thing you can do is plug your alarm in away from your bed. Plug your phone into the bathroom and set the alarm. That way you have to get up to turn it off. Or make a bet with someone to get “x” number of hours of sleep per night. I guarantee you’ll try harder.
Don’t let change overwhelm you. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Choose ONE THING you can do to improve yourself or get closer to your goal and do it as often as you can.
