Is it worth it?
Well it depends on what your long term goals are and what you are willing to give up. Let’s figure out our priorities and our goals!
If you don’t know what your priorities are, now is a great time to explore that. Where do we want to be and in what amount of time?
Next, WHAT WILL YOU DO TO SERVE THOSE GOALS AND PRIORITIES? Why? What actions are we going to take?
Whether it’s meal prepping, changing your daily habits, waking up earlier or spending more time in the gym. Think of why we want to do this? What is our Why?
After that, DECIDE FREQUENCY.
How often, how consistently and how precisely are you willing to do those things? Are we willing to implement this into our daily life and daily routine?
Lastly, DECIDE WHAT YOUR NOT WILLING TO DO. What are you unwilling to do? To trade off? Or that you won’t give up?
1. If you want to make further changes to your body, you’ll need to make further changes to your behaviors.
2. The leaner you want to get, the more of your behaviors you’ll have to change.
What you decide to change, and how much you decide to change it, is up to you.
What’s most important here is that you understand what it actually takes to do what you want (or think you want).
For example if you’re looking to be in the 6-9 (men) or 16-19 (women) body fat percentage there are benefits and trade offs to consider.
The BENEFITS ARE, you will look extremely lean and may even have a six pack.
Your overall health will probably be very good due to minimally processed foods and a balanced diet.
You also will probably experience less cravings.
The TRADE-OFFS consist struggling at social situations, especially those involving food. You may not have time for social opportunities outside of exercise. You might also have to give up other hobbies and interests outside of the gym.
Now you can make better decisions, leading the body you really want, while living the life you really enjoy!
