We all want results.
I mean who doesn't want to be stronger, leaner, etc?
But do your efforts match the desired results?
Quite often, the biggest frustration from people when they tackle their fitness and nutrition is a lack of results.
As you break it down and look at what they're doing, it's no wonder they haven't seen any results...they haven't changed anything.
"If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got."
My mentor used to drive that quote home on a daily basis.
With every change we want to make there needs to be a certain level of sacrifice that goes into it.
How much you want to sacrifice is up to you, but it needs to match your desired result.
Let's run through a couple examples...
If you're 50lbs overweight, you haven't been to a gym in 10 years, and you're just looking to feel healthier, lose some weight over time, and just have more energy.
That's the desired result.
Now you have to make sure the change matches that.
So you're going to have to workout.
But probably 8-10 times per month.
You're going to have to change your nutrition.
Does it have to be perfect?
But you're probably going to have to cut out most of the snacking, get in more vegetables, and drink more water.
There's a certain level of sacrifice required to make that change.
There may be a financial sacrifice to hire a coach.
There may be a time sacrifice of a couple hours a week, away from the family, while you're at the gym.
There also may be the sacrifices to make healthier choices 80% of the time when you're eating out or meeting up with friends.
You get the point.
Is it super drastic?
Probably not for most.
But it's a certain level of change, a certain level of commitment that matches the desired results.
Now, let's look at another example.
You want to be super lean.
Flat tummy, no jiggle, very lean, and super strong, and you're currently 30lbs overweight.
The sacrifices needed to make that desired result are going to be greater than the first example.
You're probably going to have to bump up your workout frequency substantially.
That means earlier mornings or later nights to sneak them in.
You're going to have to eat clean all the time.
In the first example, you probably are okay having a glass of wine a couple times a week, in this example, the wine would probably need to be restricted to just on holidays and birthdays, let's call is once a month.
You're going to have to keep your calories low seven days a week.
Again, in the first example, you can probably achieve those desired results by eating healthy 80% of time, and "treating" yourself a couple times a week.
That's not going to happen in this example if you want the desired results.
You get the point now.
We all think we want six-pack abs and ripped arms, but does the desired result match that work you're willing to put in?
That's up to you.
The end goal is to find a level of desired result that matches the level of change and sacrifices you're willing to commit to.
