Here’s a little story:
I figured in the heat of summer it was time that Sev learned how to swim.
His first lesson saw him sitting dry on the shore, he barely got his belly wet.
He’s not a ‘fetcher’ so when I threw a stick in the water, he cocked his head and looked at me as if to say ‘who wants a stick anyway?’
So I just figured he either didn’t know how to swim or didn’t want to.
Then we hit the dog friendly beach in Kelowna and before I knew it, he ran into the water and started swimming…
What the heck?
<== I should have known.
I actually considered throwing in a coyote or a porcupine to chase, but never thought a duck would do the trick.
He had a fantastic time chasing ducks who were actually pretty sassy letting him get close before flying off. He was certain he’d get fresh duck every time.
We can learn from Sev’s swimming lesson.
My most successful clients have figured out their ‘reason why’ and then success follows. By the way, success can be measured in many ways, whether it be fitness related, fat loss/aesthetic results, or other reasons, your reason WHY is imperative.
Your reason why gets you moving, and KEEPS you moving.
Sev was motivated to swim and keep swimming with the hopes of a duck dinner.
What’s YOUR motivation?
Once you determine what your motivation is, set a SPECIFIC goal. It’s like having a destination and then a road map to get you there.
For example, your motivation may be to look great at your high school reunion. Your goal may be to fit into a certain pair of pants. Drill down that goal even more, include the specific measurements you want to achieve. You could even add a fitness performance element to your goal like that you want to squat your bodyweight for three sets of 10 reps and also do a front plank for 2 minutes etc.
This is the kind of thing that will help you reach your goals time and time again.
The best way to stay motivated is by continuing to set goals for yourself.
If your motivation is to improve your nutrition, then I have just the thing.
A study from Harvard showed that participants that used social support while losing weight were more successful than those who didn’t.
In fact, the average weight loss among participants who used social support was 20 pounds compared to 9 pounds.
