You may think it's a strange title for a blog in February, but i purposely didn't write this until now, because February is when about 90% of people's New Years Resolutions have failed. By starting in February you instantly increase your chance of success. Clever I know, I even amaze myself sometimes!
Another thing I don't like about the New Year is the whole new you thing. I don't want a new me and you shouldn't want a new you either, there is nothing wrong with the current me (or you). Rather than trying to get a new you, you should just work to make the current you better.
Another thing I want to improve is my deadlift, so i went out and got some coaching from a top deadlifter. Getting advice from professionals is a great way to improve yourself and it will give you the confidence to know what you are doing is right. No matter how good you are there will always be somebody that you can learn from.
Choose a goal + get some advice + have a plan = Success!
How do you want to improve yourself this year?
If you want to lose fat, then focus on your diet.
If you want to look better, then it's diet and exercise.
Improve you health, it's diet and exercise again.
I shared my favourite piece of dietary advice with my email subscribers last week. It's simple and straight to the point:
Eat like an adult. Stop eating fast food, stop eating kids
cereal, knock it off with all the sweets and comfort foods
whenever your favourite show is not on when you want it on,
ease up on the snacking and don't act like you don't know this -
eat more fruit and vegetables.
Really, how difficult is this? Stop with the whining. Stop with
the excuses. Act like an adult and stop eating like you
live in a television commercial.
- Dan John
As for exercise; pick up heavy things from the floor, press heavy things overhead and go for brisk walks. This is true for everybody regardless of their goals.
If you want more specific advice then shoot me an email and I'll see what I can do.
