I have a confession to make:
Over the last two months, my diet and training have gone out the window.
If I’ve been able to train, it’s been once per week rather than ideally three.
And I’ve even had a few MacDonald’s while rushing about town!
(Chosen for convenience, not taste!)
Well, I had serious commitments, so I’ve had to put myself second.
Any coach that tells you to stick to the plan no matter what, is talking bull****.
I’m here to tell you that: LIFE HAPPENS.
You won’t always live optimally, but that doesn’t mean you stop.
To try and offset my deterioration I’ve:
– Introduced a regular sleep routine.
– Added more fruit and vegetable to my diet.
– Prioritised my mental health.
And whenever I can, I’m getting a workout in.
In my time as a coach, I’ve seen many people stop as soon as there’s an obstacle.
Maybe you thought it would be a week, or when you’ve finished that project, or you’ve settled.
(The list for starting tomorrow is endless!)
In reality, it becomes years.
You’re up a shirt size, your back aches and your self-esteem is in the gutter.
By then it can be too late.
Your health is like a current account; you can’t simply stop paying into it.
As it’ll run out sooner or later and you’ll go into the red.
Depending on how long it’s been, it can then take years to even get back to 0!
