Trust The Process

It goes without saying that anything worth having takes time. Nothing in life comes as quickly as an Amazon package, yet why are we so impatient, especially when it comes to sculpting our bodies? If we behaved the same way when we baked a cake we’d never have a cake! 

One of the biggest complaints I hear from women around the world is that it’s been weeks and they are not seeing results. The scale hasn’t moved, the tightness on their clothes hasn’t changed, therefore the program they are following must be a scam. Wrong. It’s their minds that are leading them astray. If you are a woman reading this then I want you to be rest assured that if you are in week 4 of an 8 week transformation and have yet to see results, THAT IS NORMAL. Same goes for someone on a 12 week plan. It may take 6 weeks or more for you to finally notice a difference. What doesn’t help is if you are on that tipping point and decide to give up and have that cheesecake or skip your cardio. As they teach in sales, you never know when you may be hitting gold. You could be one cardio session away from seeing a drop on the scale or from feeling a release in your clothes. Don’t give in. Stay in your lane. 

This may not be the case for other women. Some women may see a change in a week! Don’t worry about them. Stop stalking them on Instagram. Keep your head focused on your goal and worry about you. Make sure you are ticking off all of your boxes everyday because at the end of the day you are only responsible for yourself and your actions. 

Are you ready to give reaching your physique goals another chance? 

Here is my quick-start guide to lose weight that doesn’t involve going to the gym:

  1. Hydrate hydrate hydrate. Increase your water consumption to at least 1 gallon a day. I like to drink ELECTRA SHRED because the natural flavor entices me to drink more and it’s loaded with electrolytes. You need water to function and water helps shuttle fat cells out of the body.
  2. Start your mornings with lemon water, not coffee for a quick metabolism booster. After you drink water then you can reach for that warm brew. 
  3. Movement: After having your lemon water and coffee go on a 20 minute walk or do some sort of steady state cardio. 
  4. Cold Therapy: After cardio take a 3 minute cold shower. 

I challenge you to be consistent with this for one month. Consider it a social experiment! See how you feel if you increase your hydration, increase your cardio, and add some cold therapy into your routine. Getting in shape is not rocket science, but it does require dedication and discipline. Are you up for it?
