I’ve been a little M.I.A. from the social medias and blog-o-sphere this week. We are in the process of painting and prepping our new house, getting ready to move in. To say it’s been busy would be an understatement.
So, if you’ve missed me, sorry.
However, I wanted to pop in, say “hi” and give you some quality content at least once this week.
So here I am, doing just that.
When it comes to getting stronger, getting leaner, or getting healthier, most people lack one thing.
It’s not the perfect meal plan, or the perfect exercise regimen. It’s probably not a lack of information, or a need to do more research.
What is it? Consistency.
I am a big believer that a half crocked plan done consistently will get you further than the perfect plan done for a short period of time.
Imagine you take the time to plan everything “perfectly”. Your meals, exercise, sleep, hydration, stress management-everything is planned to a “t”. And you follow this plan for a few days, then don’t for three days. Then you get back at it for one or two more days, and then abandon it altogether. How much progress do you think you will have made?
On the other hand, what if you didn’t worry about getting everything perfect, but just made a few changes that you could keep consistently. Say, eating more vegetables everyday, and planning all your dinners for the week. And, what if you’re able to do that 5-6 days a week for the next two months. Think you might have better progress than the first scenario?
Now, if you think I’m advocating poor planning, you’re missing the point.
The point is that you need to focus more on being consistent than getting everything right.
Maybe it’s time to stop “planning” and start doing. And start doing more consistently. It might take you further than all your planning ever has.
