1. They want quick results. This is a FALSE EXPECTATION. If your body has not been moving/exercising for a few years, why the heck would it bounce right back in a few weeks? It’s a new year, so give it 3 months to a year of your focus, to see results. Consistency is key so expect to feel results after working out consistently a few times a week for a few months. While it is fantastic to make goals, we want them to be achievable so that we’re not disappointed and give up.
5. All or nothing. This approach has zero balance to it. Balance is the other challenge to health. We tend to go all in or nothing at all. It is much harder to stay consistent with your workouts than it is to go to one really hard workout once a week and do nothing else all week. Stretching, foam rolling and movement are important to sustaining the other workouts during the week.
So make a FEASIBLE plan that you can stick to and give yourself at least 3 months of it to see a change. A change can mean more flexibility, feeling stronger, having more energy, sleeping better, being in a better mood more often, improved self-esteem and fitting into your clothes better. YOU GOT THIS!
