Acknowledging that a mess was made of a situation = good. Not acknowledging that something needs to be done about it = bad. Wrestler translation: you may get in deep for a takedown, but if you don't finish and finish quickly, it is worth nothing. Life translation = implentation and follow-up is key to success.
How saving 15 secs filling up my water bottle affects me personally? I do it 4 times a day (1-min). Twice for the dog bowl at 30 sec each (1-min). When taking kids to the sitter and already running 2 minutes behind another 15 sec just ain't in the cards. Forfeiting vitamins and hydrating before the day even starts is a big blow to my energy level and motivation. Bad choices here I come. Bottomline for this one: if filling up my water bottle is fast, I'll do it and a cascade of positive choices will follow.
Feeding the baby, teaching responsibility, and blogging. Listening to a webinar while exercising. Going to bed earlier to increase energy level for tmrw while focusing on what's important, decreasing seratonin and cortisol levels, regenerating muscles, increasing fat burn, and decreasing calorie consumption by avoiding late night snacking. Time saving tip: fill up water bottle with the sprayer instead of the faucet decreases fill time by half!! Add 15 seconds to your day. Ha! When trying to fit exercise into your routine try integrating it into your current lifestyle rather than adding it to your already full day.
The best way to get results with a client is to create a completely transparent nonjudgemental relationship. One way to do this is to have a dounut or two every few months to communicate your humanity, empathy, and not so out of touch grasp on reality. We all live with what I call real life obstacles but they are all things that we can overcome if we are gut wrenchingly honest with ourselves about what we want and are capable of. Just look at Demi Moore in G.I Jane. One-arm push-ups = very nice, passing all the other tests despite being ganged up on by all the men = awesome, the men finally accpeting her as an equal and saying they'd go to war with her any day = inconceivable (but it happened at least in Hollywood). Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. What are the things in your life that appear to be true that are keeping you from accomplishing your goals? Or am I a hypocrite personal trainer because I ate a dounut.
