Happy New Year! You’re totally driven to finally lose all that weight and drop all those problems that have been holding you down! This is the year it all changes!
Eh. Buzz-kill alert. Most likely it won’t.
They say only 8% of people actually follow through with their new years resolutions by the end of the year. I don’t need a reference and a study to believe it. It’s no doubt that you have convinced yourself and totally believe this is the year for Change! But, the way you eat, the way you go to work, and the way you live your life will bring you right back to square one. Maybe, this year can be different.
1. Go to CrossFit 3-5x/week
What if someone wanted you to reserve 1 hour to [insert something you'd LOVE to do here]. Whatever the priority, you CLEAR your schedule TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. I know this to be true, because some people cancel out of their classes to make something else happen. If you have a lot of weight to lose, want to get off medication, or just want to bring your athleticism to the next level, You need to get your ass to the gym 3-5 times a week.
2. If you’re trying to diet, then you need to go Paleo this time around
Firstly, this will only work if you believe in it, do it right, plus, throw all the bad shit out of your cabinets and fridge. Got a family? Great, they are all on board, too. Your kids don’t need cheez-its. There is nothing that will benefit kids more than their meat and vegetables. Cookies and ice cream are not waiting in the end, either. You need to stand up and stop letting your children tell you what do to do. What will paleo do for you that other diets (or magic pills) don’t? Help you sleep better, improve happiness, clear your skin, crave less sugar, get sick less, decrease medication. Our own members are off their arthritis, migraine, and diabetes medications from as little as 5-6 weeks of paleo.
3. You have to stop with the excuses.
I’ve heard it all and you’re not going to get pity from me. If you seek out someone to agree with your bad habits, they are making it harder for you to find happiness. The truth will hurt and it sucks, but you have choices in this world. You choose to be overweight, reliant on your health insurance, and hate life and your body.
