1 part Inspiration
I try my best to inspire you to take action, get fit and eat better but I am certainly not your only option. There are incredible stories everywhere about someone deciding to make a change then doing the work to succeed.
Whether you find it in a magazine success story, a blog or YouTube video, use the inspiration to light a fire in your belly. If another has done something amazing, so can you.
2 parts Perspiration
Did you really think you could you just watch the Nike video and like the waving of a magic wand, be transformed? No, I didn’t think so. You know you have to do the work, and it’s not a walk in the park either, although that might lovely on your recovery day.
To be successful in any endeavor you have to put in some blood, sweat and tears but this is what makes the reward so sweet. So don’t turn away from from the work, turn toward it and embrace it.
Success is sweet: the sweeter if long delayed and attained through manifold struggles and defeats.
-A. Branson Alcott
3 parts Determination
This is when you have to dig in a bit and do your workout when you would rather stay in bed or say no to the cookie when everyone else says yes. You have to stay with it. 3 workouts or couple days of clean eating does not an Action hero or cover model make. (shameless plug: today is the last day for the Hot for the Holidays sale. You can get Action Hero Babe (and 3 of my other most popular programs!) for 20% off . Just go here.
Regardless whether you want to be Red Carpet Ready or just fit and strong it takes consistent action,consistent workouts and consistent clean eating. There is no such thing as maintenance!
If you are not determined to keep pushing, to keep making better choices your body will respond by getting soft and then so will your willpower and so will your brainpower.
Get inspired. Be willing to perspire. Stay determined.
Rise above the masses that have given up their fitness during the holidays. You’re better that.
You will have a jump start on 2012. Your jump start starts now!
