Updated: Jan 17, 2021
The new year is on the horizon and with it, a multitude of resolutions will be set and started with all the enthusiasm of a children's tv presenter.
But... How long will it last?
When things don't quite turn out as you'd planned; maybe you miss a few gym sessions, or a night out derails the next week, who do you point the finger at?
Usually blame is attached to everything but ourselves.
How often do you find yourself saying...
"I've had a busy, stressful day today so I'll leave gym tonight and go later in the week"
Of course, we've all been there and we all know that it's a pattern that quickly escalates
"One takeaway won't hurt"
Four times a week
So... what can we do about it?
Keep it simple
Each of us is guilty of over-complicating life.
I guarantee that if there's a harder, more complicated and less efficient way of doing something, I will find it and I will do it until I learn otherwise.
Information overload is very real and in today's Instagram age, very dangerous.
It's easy to find the latest 'special' fad and follow it down a vast rabbit hole in search of fast progress.
Find a reputable source of information.
If your goal is to lose weight, find a local personal trainer with a reputation for helping his clients achieve their goals.
