Are You In a Rut?

It’s the month of June and you’re well into your healthier lifestyle, working-out, eating right and getting your recommended sleep but lately you seem to be struggling with something.
Your not seeing the results as fast as you thought, you are tired of the same old dinners and snacks, you see your friends drinking that glass of wine (the good one) and the mirror just isn’t showing what you want it too!
Are you in a “RUT”? Well now is the time to tell your-self to “stick to the plan”!
When you stick to the plan you do something that you promised yourself or decided you would do and believe you should do.
Great physiques and a healthy body are created with consistency, compliance and patience and to have all of these you need to “stay the course”, keep on track.
So how are you going to do that you ask? Just remember this:
Consistency: The regularity or steady continuity.
You are someone that can be counted on and only you can provide the consistent flow of achievement and level of performance so everything runs correctly in your lifestyle makeover.
Compliance: In agreement with established guidelines and specifications.
You set out on this Lifestyle change and made specific changes and practices to your daily routine for the process of becoming your best self. In theory, you really made a “Terms of Contract” for yourself and only YOU can conform to the specific standards of your lifestyle contract.
Patience: The key to change and growth.
Your multitasking, your on a tight schedule and stretching yourself too thin your looking for that endurance under difficult circumstances to keep you going.
Patience is what will help you persevere in your lifestyle change.
When you’re stressed out and impatient and making slow progress, you’re going to experience more emotions. Your ability to suppress annoyance to any and all emotions and elements is essential for long-term success.
Establishing healthy patterns and achieving permanent weight loss takes patience. Take the time to forgive yourself for having that chocolate bar. When your stressed and impatient it slows your progress and that causes emotions, which causes cravings, which causes more stress and around the circle you go!
You have it in you, keep that yielding tolerance for patience and you’ll see it will all workout in the end.
Now it’s time to congratulate yourself and keep looking back to see how far you’ve come. Every time you do, you take your attention off of the distance you still have to go and it gets shorter a little bit more each time. Focus on how proud you are of yourself for doing so well.
Congratulations and keep going!
