Weight Training

I imagine many people have this idea in their head that once they lose an amount of weight it will just magically stay off of those hips, thighs, stomach and butt. Some people have a delusion of thinking they can go right back to their old eating habits, and forget about what they've been doing to succeed for the past several months. People it's NEVER going to happen.

The small step diet is about how to take smalls steps so you may enjoy lasting success in your diet and fitness. It's a weight training program you must adhear too for the rest of your life if you want to remain fit. It is a lifestyle change in not only your eating habits, but you exercise habits too. The point is, you really can take small steps to accomplish success for the rest of your life, but without those steps, you will see the results you definately do not desire.

Let's review a concept:
In order to walk from one place to another you have to take one step at a time. In order to take one step at a time you have to put on one shoe at a time. Before that you have to tie one lace at time. Is the picture getting clear? Weight trainning is all about taking steps. It doesn't matter how small these steps are, they all lead to the desired outcome. One day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time gets you to your destination. Without these steps, success is unlikely because you overwhelm yourself with fear.

Train yourself to accept taking small steps. Enough small steps lead to big outcomes. If you make your goals small enough, you basically have to succeed. If you can't walk a mile, you still might be able to crawl a foot. Set in motion some small step to take every day towards your goal.

...And you thought this was going to be about Dumb Bells, didn't you?


What It Takes said...

Great concept. In NLP therapy we call it 'chunking down.' For me, it helps my mind not get overwhelmed by what can be a big goal.

Definitely something I recommend as something that works.

Yes, Somewhere I've heard that term, 'chunking down.' It's just a very effective concept to help people face the fear of being overwhelmed by taking on to much at a time.

To your success...
