DO THIS, GET RESULTS by Paluna Santamaria
What if I told you that focusing on big nutrition goals might be keeping you away from achieving them?
Let me explain, when you start a nutrition program your goals read something like this:
-I want to lose 20lbs.
-I want bigger shoulders.
-I want ripped abs.
The above statements are outcomes that are possible to achieve, however it’s impossible to know the rate in which your body will respond to a program.
Obsessing about those outcomes can cause frustration when the results don’t happen as fast as you want them.
When it comes to nutrition and training, patience is the name of the game.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m not suggesting you set no goals. I’m saying once you have set them, have a plan and concentrate on the daily behaviors that will add up to the big results.
-I will eat protein at every meal today.
-I will walk to work instead of driving at least 3 days out of the week.
-I will get 8hrs sleep every day this week.
The difference between the first set of statements and the second set is that on the second you have a list of things you CAN control.
I think it was Ed Coan who said:
“My goal was never to be the best in the world, lift this amount of weight. My goal was to get better every single training cycle. And if you do that for a lot of years, you’re gonna be pretty good”
To sum up, trust the process, do things you can control more often and as I usually say thanks to coach Mash “don’t forget to have fun.”
