Diet’s don’t work
I saw this post on social media and I thought it was awesome
So I wanted to share it with you
I think it completely epitomises what I stand for
And is probably pretty relevant to you too
Let me know what you think….
‘Right at this moment, there is a woman sitting at home vowing to herself that 2017 will be her year physically.
This will be the year she changes her body, accepts her limitations and makes feeling good and moving often a part of her daily life.
Here is what every woman should know before she commits to fitness:
Strong women are beautiful women.
You will never become the best you can be by chaining yourself to a treadmill and walking for hours.
You might lose weight, but even those losses will stop soon.
The structure you see and admire in other women is muscle.
Most of the diseases of aging are self-inflicted.
In other words, you can control your own physical future through knowing your body, working with a knowledgeable coach and educating yourself.
Never chase your former self.
We were all somebody back in the day and chasing that unrealistic idea of trying to recapture your glory days isn’t going to work.
Yes, you might have been the prom queen or national class soccer player, but today you should just focus on being the best you can be today and stop chasing the woman you can never be again.
The lies you believe will harm your future.
Many women fade after 50 becoming lesser versions of themselves because they have always believed one inherent lie: if you lift weights you will get big.
That is like saying don’t take up golf because you are afraid of making all that money on the women’s tour.
If you only could go to the gym one day a week, then lift weights with a good coach.
If you only can go twice a week, then lift weights with a good coach.
Beyond that, you have to adapt your goals to your lifestyle, but you should still embrace what strength training can do for the next 40 years of your life and be afraid of the biggest lie ever told.
Your support group will often let you down.
When you take control of your life and your body, and those around you are still trapped by yesterday, your friends will often work against your success.
Someone doing nothing hates to be reminded daily that her friend is working seriously on a better life and is taking control of how she feels and how she looks.
As you change, make sure you are hanging with friends chasing the same goals and dreams.
And your significant other may be your biggest road block.
You will live longer as a woman than any woman has ever lived in the past.
The workouts you do today will determine the quality of life you have in the future.
You can’t wait until you are in the wheelchair to change your life.
Then it is to late.
The single biggest lie in fitness is dieting.
Diets do not work and never will.
Adapting healthy eating, based upon you as an individual and with the guidance of someone with some practical experience, to your body is the only way to keep your weight under control.
Nothing changes until you do.
Being the best you can be is there for anyone chasing that dream, but no one but you can set you on that path.
And did I mention find a good coach?’
I love this post
If you think I am the right person to help you, get in touch…
But what I really want you to do
Is find that person who SPEAKS to you
Who you LISTEN to
Who gets your juices flowing
Who pushes your buttons
That is the person who will take you forwards
Find that person
And talk to them
Don’t put it off
