Consistency is key in really improving the way you look, feel and perform.
In our daily lives we repeatedly do things that either hinders or benefits our goals – these are called habits.
A habit is a regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.
What are you doing on a regular basis that’s holding you back right now?
And… what can you start doing to look and feel better?
For example if you started exercising regularly and eating healthier consistently you will build that into a habit and that becomes part of your lifestyle.
Let’s be real each week is different, you have to stay late at work and can’t cook a healthy meal or kids are sick and you miss a workout that’s called reality.
But if your consistent for the most part let’s say 80% of the time on a regular basis that’s enough to help get in shape.
Most people need that 20% wiggle room when life simply gets in the way.
Also Habits create automation which creates consistency, you just go and do it.
A study showed: the best way to trim down is to steadily – not drastically – cut down your calories. The key to losing weight and keeping it off is consistently losing a small amount each week.
It may not be as trendy as a juice cleanse, but a sensible weight loss approach will pay off in the long run because people who lose a lot of weight in a short period of time nearly always pile the pounds back on afterwards.
It was found that the participants (80 per cent of whom were women) who lost a consistent amount of weight week-in week-out for the first six weeks of the study had lost more weight a year on than the yo-yo dieters, despite the fact that they’d seen more dramatic results in the early stages.
And another year on, those who’d lost weight consistently were more likely to have kept it off.
The key is sticking to it!
