Do you exercise with the hopes of reaching a specific number on the scale? Or are you wishing to fit into a particular size dress or jeans? While having a goal is great, it will NOT ensure your success.
Consider how many people you know who have had a specific weight that they wanted to reach. You are likely one of them. This number might have been posted up on a sticky note on the fridge, reminding you to watch what you eat and consistently make it to the gym. Maybe this number was updated and recorded every day, to enforce accountability.
How long did that last? A week? Two weeks? Statistics dictate that it likely didn’t last longer than a few weeks until that “goal number” began to fade from your life. Then you took it down off the fridge, or you stared at it defiantly as you reached for the off-limits food. You began to look at your goal number as an adversary rather than something enjoyable.
I’m going to clue you in on a new perspective that may help you when it comes to fitness, fat loss, and achieving any goal. Read on; this one is worthwhile.
IT’S NOT ABOUT REACHING A SPECIFIC WEIGHT.
What I just said may go against everything you’ve come to believe about achieving a goal, but then, your techniques haven’t correctly been working. The number that you’re hoping to be one day doesn’t matter one bit, and here’s why.
IT’S ACTUALLY ABOUT LIVING IN THE MOMENTUM.
Can you remember how it felt the last time that you ate clean, exercised hard and got adequate sleep for a few consecutive days? A feeling of momentum came over you, didn’t it? There was a buzzing in your cells and a rhythm in your pace. You felt alive, you felt healthy, and you felt empowered. Never mind that you weren’t yet at your goal number, you were almost there!
Getting down to your goal weight, and fitting into your goal size, is the direct result of living in that state of momentum for an extended period. You see, the energy can be felt immediately, once you start eating clean, exercising hard and taking care of your health, whereas that “goal number” just can’t be felt until you achieve, and so it’s not as powerful a motivator.
My challenge and advice to you is to find the joy of living in the momentum and keep that momentum going until your goal number is your new NOW! Focus only on the energy of moving forward, not on the figure on the scale.
Fitness is a way of life. Being lean is a lifestyle. Neither of which can be had by going about it halfheartedly.
You have to become the momentum.
