Not a good start for me as my van shut down on Saturday 40 minutes before Maximum Metabolism Bootcamp started 🙁 . Just as well I always set off ahead of time as I had to leg it like Forrest Gump to the nearest Taxi rank!
Today I thought I’d drop some musings on the fact that losing body fat – is definitely WORTH IT……however……….it can take longer than you think.
Often, I’ll have someone in front of me (or at a social gethering or whatever)……..and they want to lose fat to look better. Sometimes its just for generally looking better – but sometimes it for a special occasion.
After all – who doesn’t want to look their best on their wedding day?
These occasions give a date and a deadline to work to. When you set a goal – deadlines are important – like I highlighted why you need to be S.M.A.R.T.E.R. (CLICK TO READ THIS ARTICLE)
This is useful………but you probably know what happens. We DON’T LEAVE ENOUGH TIME.
Say you want to lose 2 stone, and you have 1 month to do it in. That’s going to be pretty tough if you’re say 2-4 stone overweight………….(it could be done easily if you re 10-15 stone overweight like on The Biggest Loser TV programme).
A simpler way might be to use a steady 2lbs-a-week method (not a bad average), and just backtrack. So if you want to lose 10lbs……give yourself AT LEAST 5 weeks. You won’t be disappointed, as you’ve not given yourself much chance (if you ‘ve not given yourself enough time).
The leaner you are – the less you will lose.
It’s January now……….summer holidays are not THAT far away. Make the decision early (click to read why) and start NOW.
You know what I hate hearing? When people say “I dont want to start yet…I just want to get a bit fitter first………then I’ll start. ”
You know you need to start early.
