Productivity isn’t about getting more done. It’s about what you get done.
Research proves that consistency beats perfection regarding your fitness routine and weight loss goals.
Perfection sets you up for unrealistic expectations that can lead to major disappointment, hindering your progress altogether.
You can get into this mental state of thinking that if it can't be perfect, why bother? Which is a HORRIBLE mindset to be in.
Consistency, on the other hand, allows us to take realistic daily steps toward our goals. Whether it’s being consistent with your nutrition goals, or consistently showing up to your "me time", consistency will always win.
Consistency isn’t just important with fitness—it’s also just as important when it comes to nutrition.
Healthy eating is truly a journey, not a final destination. It's taking the foods you eat and learning how to fuel your body correctly, no I'm not talking about being on a strict diet of Chicken & rice. Though I love both those things, I'm married to a Farmer and we have a freezer full of BEEF.
It truly is unrealistic to think about radically changing your diet overnight and this will lead to regret, along with stress. At the end of the day, it’s about balance, not perfection.
It’s also about consistency.
Challenge yourself to get out of the perfection headspace. Realizing that no matter how small of a step you take, showing up and being consistent about reaching your fitness and weight loss goals are doing something positive.
Making consistent healthy changes, no matter how small, are never a waste of time. It's a part of the journey.
Say goodbye to the idea of perfection and say hello to being realistic and consistent.
Our bodies adapt gradually to exercise as well. In the end, consistency will help you reach your goals. Without it, you might not have enough structure to allow for growth.
Work first on figuring out your "why" statement. A "why" statement is an important part of a fitness journey. It helps you figure out why you are wanting to adopt these changes into your life. Then figure out your goals...determine the best route to achieve them, and get started with one step.
If you’re not sure how to get started, the trainers at FFT can help you set goals and develop programs tailored to those goals.
