Tell me if this sounds familiar.
You decide that it’s time to get in shape and you won’t be stopped, working out every day, weighing food, and taking every supplement known to mankind. Things are going great…at first.
The weight is coming off.
Your strength is improving and you feel awesome and empowered.
But, a few months down the line things start happening, like life and you miss a workout (and that’s okay). Then, a small injury or sickness gets in the way and you miss a few more.
Before too long you wonder “how do all these fit people keep up with this?!?”
Here is the secret – they don’t.
Fit people, the ones who are fit year-round and for life, understand that this is a lifetime achievement award. It can’t be done in 8 short weeks or whatever the current magazine is promoting. They understand and appreciate the efforts of the hares who go from “couch potato” to “gym rat” but know that those efforts aren’t sustainable.
The turtle always wins the race, and here’s how:
1. Lift weights three times a week and be conservative with your progressions.
2. Eat real food 80% of the time.
3. Get eight hours of sleep.
4. Take a near-daily walk.
5. Drink water.
6. Avoid caloric beverages and added sugar.
7. Repeat – for life.
This approach doesn’t sell magazines but it works for life because you can repeat it for life.
Which are you?
A turtle or a hare?
Remember, the turtle always wins the race!
