Fitness & weight loss programs: Do you sabotage your success?

November 7, 2012

It is now is the time to face a cold hard fact.

For everyone who starts any program or class there are those that don’t make the progress that others do. We know that everyone is different but what actually does make the winners succeed and stay on track? And, what is it that makes others fail, wander off onto other tracks, get lost, and never succeed.

Perhaps we can liken it to the Olympic athletes. What makes those who get selected better than those who don’t?  In most cases the answer is attitude; attitude to stay focused and to train despite all the things that could side-track them. It is difficult but they do it, and those that do it best get the medals.

So, I am going to ask you two easy questions about your attitude:

1. How much do you WANT to be slimmer or fitter, or whatever? If you want to you will be researching, finding the best way for you, putting it in place and doing it.

2. How much do you BELIEVE you can?  Now, this is a completely different question. This is a bit scary for those who have been on diets for years, and are now back to square one; scary too, for those who are still paying for an unused gym membership, or who ‘gave up’ last time. There can be a lot of doubt, such as, ‘What if I fail again?’

When we have doubt in our minds we make excuses, we try to avoid the situation, or blame other things if we fail; ‘They don’t do that class now’, ‘I am too busy’, ‘She cooked it so I couldn’t say no’. There are so many excuses people use to justify why they haven’t done something. In many cases they are in a repeat mental program that started years ago. Unconsciously they are sabotaging their own progress.

So, today I am suggesting that you get your priorities right. Improved fitness and health will make a huge difference to you, your work and your relationships with others. You deserve that! Use your drive and determination to be a winner.

And, if anyone even thinks of excuses, or finds themselves side-tracked, recognise it as a ‘self sabotaging belief blockage’ and deal with it now. I am very good at finding why unconscious blockages happen and freeing them.

If this rings true to you then it’s ok to contact me  for a confidential chat, in fact please do.

6 easy ways to get slimmer and fitter for free

September 12, 2012

Weren’t the Olympics amazing?  and the Paralympics were an eye opener. What challenges these people had to get over to attend the Games and what achievements they had.

I suspect they may have spurred you on to look a bit closer at your own waistline and fitness levels

So what can YOU do about getting slimmer and fitter?

1. Walking or cycling is easy enough. It is pleasant to get out in the fresh air and good for your muscle tone and health. If you exercise for half an hour 4 times every week in six months you will have made a huge difference to your body shape and mind clarity.

2. Drink water often. It is free, and if you put a slice of lemon, lime or orange in it you will enjoy the taste and help your digestion.

3. Cut back, or eliminate all fizzy drinks. The sugar in them is seriously and frighteningly fattening.

4. Eat only what you need. Many people eat way too much ‘rubbish’ food. Say, “No thank you, I don’t need that,” more often. It is surprisingly easy to say No, and surprisingly liberating.

5. Say “Yes,” more often. Say “Yes” to fruit, veges and salads. Say “Yes” to having a buddy to do all this with. Know that yes is an easy word to say when you think of your health and fitness. Say “Yes, I can do this!”.

6. Be more aware of your conversations. No-one else wants to hear your excuses. If you want to be slimmer and fitter then do it. Show others you are capable of it. Actions do speak louder than words, and best of all, you benefit. Yes!

Put these 6 easy steps into place and you will not only slim down and feel more energized but you will also save money.

Now, if you have a problem with motivation there may well be a blockage or two preventing your progress. It is quite likely that these have unconsciously stopped, or sidetracked, you in the past. Maybe a helpful coach with good ideas and techniques to clear these would spur you on?

My fully supportive 3 month ‘Bolt to success’ weight loss program recognizes that people want real help to succeed. It includes: 5 hours of very personal appointments; my 5 successful hypnotic healthy mindset audios; clear energizing meridian ‘tapping’ videos; helpful tips and techniques, all wrapped up into a constructive, caring package with unlimited support. There’s even a free phone consultation so that when you start we have covered the basics and can move on immediately the first session begins.

This is a motivational mindset change and it works. Like Miranda you could be 2 months on and 2 stone gone.
