Taking Responsibility For Your Habits
I was recently at an event where, being the personal trainer among the group, I was bombarded with questions on what people can do to achieve their goals. One of the ladies there was asking me about strategies to implement around the house to help her stay on track and not binge on food she shouldn’t be eating
My first question to her, which I already knew the answer to, was, ‘Do you do the shopping?’ to which she replied ‘Yes, every week.’ I went on to explain that would it not make sense to not buy those foods in the first place, then they aren’t in the house and then hey-presto crisis averted.
Fill your pantry with the foods you should be eating and not ‘snacks’ as she put it, that you know you shouldn’t be. If you want a healthy snack try this green smoothie, I guarantee it will give you the boost you need.
While this all sounds simple it’s one of the most common themes I hear. So my question to you is, do you take responsibility for what you eat? The answer should be yes, without any hesitation, a strong solid yes. If it’s not, then why not? How can you expect to reach your goals if you aren’t taking responsibility of what goes in your mouth?
Sometimes a push is needed, and this is it. If you truly aren’t taking responsibility for what you eat everyday then you will not reach your goals, it’s that simple.
If you have a goal in mind, you need to take control of your food, your exercise and your mind set. These are the main building blocks of any successful goal-orientated journey which I educate my clients on and it all boils down to one thing.
To a happier and healthier you
