Is Doing More Better for Fat Loss?

Is doing more ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ better for fat loss?

Working out more only ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ด like itโ€™s a better fat loss plan, because youโ€™re doing more. But how many times have you tried committing to the gym six days a week, only to find yourself falling off?

You assume itโ€™s because you canโ€™t get your shit together, right?

Itโ€™s not that, baby girl.

Itโ€™s because youโ€™re over-committing yourself and doing too much too soon. You wind up feeling overwhelmed because itโ€™s impossible to maintain.

And then you give up.

Circling us back to the answer of the original questionโ€”๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ž ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ง๐จ๐ญ ๐›๐ž๐ญ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ, ๐›๐ž๐ญ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐›๐ž๐ญ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ. Better is whatโ€™s most practical for YOU and what you can be consistent with.

Youโ€™re more inclined to stick to something if itโ€™s easy for youโ€”and consistency is the true game changer here.

So, how do you establish that?

1. If it feels like too much, take something out of the equation.

Example: if youโ€™re trying to workout five days a week, but youโ€™re having a hard time scheduling it all in, cut down to three or four days a week.

2. Start with one to two habits at a time and build from there.

Example: rather than trying to change everything in your diet at once, start by creating one healthy habit at a time and then add from there.

3. Be easy on yourself. No really, itโ€™s just fitness, itโ€™s not that serious. Stop beating yourself up about slipping upโ€”youโ€™re only human.

HOW TO STICK TO YOUR GOALS

Are you having a hard time sticking to your goals? Don't worry. I got you! Below are my top 4 tips on how to stick with it.

TIP #1: START SMALL

I think a huge mistake the majority of us make is jumping up to level 12 instead of taking the first step. For instance, if you eat fast food everyday and don't workout at all, do you really need to start taking BCAA's? Hell no. You don't have to tackle everything all at once, you can start with 1-2 small goals at a time and work your way up. Not only does this make things much easier on you but you're more likely able to maintain it in the long run. 

TIP #2: NO MORE "ALL OR NOTHING"

I used to be guilty of the "all or nothing" mentality which was the biggest mistake I made starting my journey. I constantly felt like I couldn't get my shit together when the reality of it was, I was just being too hard on myself. You don't have to be perfect about it and I think that's where a lot of us mess up. It's okay to indulge or skip a workout. It doesn't mean you messed up or have to start all over, it means you are human.

TIP #3: BUY CUTE GYM CLOTHES

If you are anything like me, cute gym clothes make you feel more confident and push you to work harder. If I go to the gym with an outfit I don't like or don't feel comfortable in, I instantly don't want to be at the gym. So update your 2017 wardrobe with some Roc It Fit Apparel. You won't regret your choice. 

TIP #4: ACCOUNTABILITY 

Find someone or something that helps to hold you accountable. I can tell you from personal experience, motivation is not what keeps you there. Motivation is something that fires you up to start and while it may be there for a few weeks, it something that comes and goes. This is why it's so critical to find that sense of accountability. So I want to encourage you to grab a gym buddy or work with a trainer, like me! ;)


So that my friends is how to stick to your goals. I hope you found this helpful! Please share this with a friend who may need a little extra help sticking with it :)
