I’ve heard this story a million times. A new client or challenge participant is getting ready to start training with us here at To The Core Pilates. They’re nervous but excited to see some results. It’s maybe Thursday, and they’re getting started on Monday.
But Monday they show up bloated with low energy and 3 pounds heavier.
Why, you ask?
Because they literally binged on all of their favourite and soon-to-be “forbidden” foods. I’ve seen people create huge setbacks for themselves in the name of not being able to have what they love ever again. And honestly, if you approach any workout or nutrition plan with that mentality, you will fail. It’s that simple. This is a truth that MUST be told. No food will ever be off limits. We just believe, for one reason or another, that it has to be this way to get results. However, there is no all or none in health and fitness. It can be as simple as smaller portions, decreased frequency of consumption, or preparing healthier alternatives to your favourite foods. But there is never a reason to believe that you’re going to have to say goodbye to bread and cheese forever.
So, have you ever approached a fitness program with this mentality of “never again?” What was the outcome?
P.S. If you’re ready to get off the “all or none” thought train and get real, lasting results, reply to this message and we can talk one on one about getting started.
