Where do you stand?

by Megan K on August 22, 2014

I have had some interesting conversations this week with colleagues and clients about success.

 

The most common trend I’ve noticed is that the people who are having the most success are holding themselves accountable for their fitness and nutrition goals and they are doing so by checking in regularly.

 

The people who seem to have stalled in progress or who are even back sliding (in body fat, inches, weight gains etc.) are denying their current reality and or making excuses for what is happening.

 

 

We all have extraordinarily busy times in our lives, times when fitting in exercise becomes more challenging or when we choose to eat on the run with less healthy options available.  A life without these occassional challenges is a rarity and we recognize that at times life can be pretty darn tough.
Adidtionally, we all have times when certain foods seem more appealing- whether that be associated to hormonal fluctuations, micronutrient deficienty, natural ‘eb and flow’ of hunger or emotional eating.

 

But when poor nutrition choices and missed workouts become a common trend, progress will stall.   I’ve known people to deny that an alternative course of action could be taken or that a change is needed.  Sometimes we get so caught up in the stories we tell ourselves about how busy we are and how we simply “can’t” that we believe it and we relegate ourselves and our health to a lower priority.

 

It is important to know where you stand with your fitness and your health so that you can continue to make progress and this means stepping away from denial and moving toward accountability- even if you think you might not like to know the reality.

 

After all, it isn’t as though we’d write checks without first insuring we have sufficient funds.  Why would we overeat and under exercise and think we could get away with it?

With that dearest clients please note that we need to stay on top of doing regular fitness assessments (ideally once a month) so…if you’ve been delaying or avoiding doing this please lets do a check-in.

 

 

It is like a regular physical at the doctor’s office or a check-up at the dentist’s office.  It just tells you were you stand and gives us feedback on whether or not things need to be tweaked to increase your success. And we aren’t going to scold you if things aren’t going well.

 

 

At FBBC we want you to succeed in all of your endeavors because we firmly believe that when we are feeling good physically we are able to go out and do better in all areas of our lives.

 

 

Committed to your success,

Megan K and the team
