The simple habit that changed everything

Sandy started her fat loss journey with 56 pounds to lose, though when you see her now you’d never believe that she was once overweight. Today the lean, attractive and walks confidently with a spring in her step and a smile on her face.

Given her amazing transformation, it’s easy to see why she’s so confident and happy.

The simple habit that started it all…

Aristotle taught us that, “You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” His words aptly apply to fitness.

For Sandy, dropping 56 pounds was not the result of an act, but of a habit.

The simple habit that she adopted was to place her gym clothes on her nightstand before going to sleep each night.

That’s. It.

Every morning the first thing that she would see was the tidy stack of clean gym clothes. So her first act of the day was to put them on.

Naturally, now that her gym clothes were on, Sandy would then go directly to her workout. By starting her day in such a positive, fitness-oriented way, Sandy was then able to continue making healthy choices throughout the day, ending it by putting the next day’s gym clothes on her nightstand before bed.

Did she have any hiccups along the way? Certainly. There were days that would start out great, but then she’d get off track sometime after lunch. Discouraging as the occasional setback was, she kept on putting her gym clothes out each night.

By starting her day out with such a positive fitness experience, Sandy was able to make a habit out of fitness. As a result she lost 56 pounds and regained her confidence and sunny disposition.

What about you? What habit could you adopt that would keep you on track with your fitness goal?

It shouldn’t be complicated.

Maybe you will start putting your gym clothes out each night, like Sandy. Maybe you will make the recipe below for Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken each week to pack with some veggies in mini meals to eat throughout your day.

Pick one simple, fitness habit and add it to your daily routine.

Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken

Having healthfully prepared protein on hand for on-the-go meals is a MUST when it comes to packing healthy meals to eat throughout your day. Put 4 to 6 ounces of protein (like this amazing pulled chicken!), a handful of cooked veggies and a handful of fresh arugula in a little Tupperware and drizzle on a bit of homemade balsamic dressing for a simple, quick, get-lean meal.

Eating small meals every few hours consisting of protein and veggies is the most reliable way that I know of to drop body fat and maintain a steady flow of energy throughout the day. It’s pretty darn tasty too, when you make the meals yourself!

Daily Quota and Big Goals

You have some BIG GOALS in that brain of yours! Good for you! Big Goals give us the purpose and meaning that we need to live a fulfilling life.

The way to reach your Big Goal is to put daily quotas in place. These are the little steps that add up to the achievement of your Big Goal.

In writing a book, the daily quota is typing a minimum number of words per day. In fitness, your daily quota is the workout and clean eating that you’ll do.

Put your own daily quotas in place, and each day you’ll travel closer to the achievement of your Big Goal. Go get ‘em!
