When there is SOOOO much to do, and you do nothing

An observation:

Many Slimmers I see are OVERWHELMED.

They look at what there is “to do” (to start a new diet plan), such things as:

*Planning ahead
*Cooking new recipes
*Shopping for new foods

And the list goes on.

Some well intentioned slimmers don’t even manage to get started.

All because there seems so much to do.

And I agree.

For example, just take water, yesterday I said to one of my personal training members, Cath, that ideally, if she is having a blow out on the weekends, she should try to drink 3 (maybe even 4 if she got really drunk) litres of water.

Her face said it all.

I could tell in her mind she was thinking, “there is no way I could do that”.

And she’s probably right.

Because she isn’t drinking much water at all yet, its a big step to go from drinking very little water, to drinking that much.

The lesson, and something you probably already know:

You don’t have to do it all at once.

Cath could start with a few extra glasses of water at the weekends, and build it up.

I work on the premise, anything better than you’re already doing, is a bonus.

Same goes with the grub.

Get a simple breakfast sorted first, and do that DAILY, before you try and tackle everything else. Then work on maintaining that NEW HABIT, before you try to add more to an already full plate.

For lots of my members, this approach has lead to them PERMANENTLY changing their wicked ways.

Of course there is a right way and a wrong way to do all this. To learn the right way, one of my personal training or nutrition programmes would be a BIG step in the right direction.
