Yippie, it is the New Year again. Time to start over, another year of unsuccessful diets and workout plans.
Is this what you bring to the table every new years. Memories filled with an entire year of failure in the gym and with your diet. As if life is not stressful enough. It doesn’t have to be that way. If you can just change the way you think about your goals you may feel differently at the end of 2016. Nobody is perfect!
Living by the 80/20 rule works. I never tell my clients they fail if they skip a workout or have their favorite treat. I honestly believe that life is too short. I have tried not having cheat meals and not skipping a workout and I was miserable. The results were minimal because I was so stressed all the time.
How about this year you try to make lifestyle changes slowly and not think about all the rules you have put on yourself starting January 1. Do not think about what you can’t have but what can have.
I teach people to change the way they eat for the rest of their lives and to have a workout plan that is maintainable not killing your self for hours at the gym. A majority of us are Olympic athletes so don’t train like one it is not necessary.
So this year go for the 80/20 rule enjoy your 20 percent you are worth it.
