Get your best body ever (step-by-step plan)

September 4, 2019

Is your body in the shape you want it to be? Do you feel free to wear whatever you’d like

without needing to cover up any trouble spots?

If not, then I’voe got a step-by-step plan to get you into your best body ever…

Best Body Ever Step #1: Programme Your Mind

Your mind is your number one ally when it comes to achieving your goals. However, until your

mind has been programmed for success, it will do more to derail your efforts than to help you.

  • Take a few moments each day to visualise yourself at your ideal weight. Imagine how it feels

    to look the way you’voe always wanted.

  • Protect your mind from any negative self-talk. If a negative thought comes to mind,

    immediately reject it.

  • <

  • You want to be thin and fit, and yet you think of yourself as out-of-shape and fat.

    Re-programme your mind to think of yourself as fit and attractive, and you will be well on

    your way toward achieving your goal.

  • Give up the belief that you can’t achieve the body you’voe always dreamt of. See it first in

    your mind, and then in the mirror.

Best Body Ever Step #2: Conquer Your Fear

Change makes most of us nervous – even if it is a change in the right direction. You may not be

consciously aware of the fear you have of getting into shape. Until you conquer this fear, your

best body efforts will be blocked by self-sabotage.

Professional speaker and author, Anthony Robbins, has outlined three specific beliefs that you

must have in order to conquer your fear and instantly create a lasting change.

  • Believe that something MUST change. You can’t be wishy-washy about it. You can’t be

    considering it. You can’t even be pretty sure about it. You’voe got to be rock solid.

  • Believe that YOU must change it. You can’t pass the buck of responsibility and expect

    to lose weight. It’s on your shoulders. Other people will prove to be great assets in your

    journey, but in the end you are the one who is going to make it happen. You have to want

    this weight loss enough to make it your personal mission.

  • Believe you CAN change it. You may have failed in the past, but that doesn’t matter.

    When you put your mind to it, you’re able to do amazing things. Do you believe that you are

    capable of losing weight? Once you own the belief that you can, you’ll be unstoppable.

Best Body Ever Step #3: Lose Your Excuses

Your excuses for being out-of-shape are getting old. An excuse takes less immediate effort than

an action, but in the long run the action taker always has the advantage. Don’t allow excuses to

ruin your life any longer.

  • Don’t skip out on your responsibilities with excuses, instead expect more from yourself.

  • Focus on the big reason why you are losing the weight. Make a list of the benefits you’ll

    enjoy once you achieve your goal and read them first thing each morning.

  • Remember that you can only have two things in life: excuses or results. Which do you want?

Best Body Ever Step #4: Strengthen Your Commitment

How many times have you tried to lose weight, only to give up a week or two later? We live in a

commitment-phobic world, so it’s no wonder that you routinely abandon your goals. If you truly

want to lose weight, then your commitment to the process is a must.

  • The margin between success and failure is bridged by your commitment. Don’t give up until

    your goal has been achieved.

  • Treat exercise with the same importance as a work meeting, and you’ll never skip it at the

    last minute. Find three available 30-minute time slots in your schedule and mark them on

    your calendar. Now stick to your schedule.

  • If you don’t give up, then you’ll never fail.

Best Body Ever Step #5: Control Your Diet

If you consistently eat the wrong food, then your weight loss efforts will all be in vain. To

put it bluntly, you need to stop eating junk. Processed foods, refined sugar and high fructose

corn syrup do not belong in your diet if you want to be in great shape. Cut these items out of

your diet and replace them with real whole foods like lean meats, vegetables, whole grains, nuts

and fruits.

  • Don’t eat processed foods. Even though processed foods are accepted by our society, they

    contain tons of chemicals and empty calories that will make you sick and fat.

  • Fat contains twice the caloric density of protein and carbohydrates, so make sure to limit

    the amount that you consume. Eat lots of lean proteins and wholesome carbohydrates from

    plants and whole grains.

  • Vegetables, whole grains, fruits, nuts and seeds are filled with fibre and antioxidants

    which are vital for healthy weight loss. Snack on these instead of packaged treats.

Best Body Ever Step #6: Utilise Your PatienceIt takes time to transform your body from fat to fit, even though you want it to happen

overnight. Remind yourself that it took time to put the weight on, so it will take time to take

the weight off. When you find your patience wavering, or when you encounter a frustrating

plateau, do the following:

  • Review your goal. Is it specific and measurable? Is it small and attainable, rather than

    monumental? Focus on your goal when the going gets tough.

  • Make each workout a new experience. Challenge your body with different resistance, new

    exercises and a varied pace.

  • Remember that anyone can have one great workout, but that won’t get you the body you want.

    The only way to achieve your goal is by consistently exercising and eating right, plain and

    simple.

Best Body Ever Step #7: Build Your Support

People who exercise alone are less challenged, less accountable and are more likely to fail. It

makes sense. Who would rush to the gym if no one is was waiting for them? Who would push

themselves if no one was paying attention? Exercising solo is a recipe for disaster.

  • Find a workout partner who is in better shape than you, or better yet, work with me, your

    local fitness expert, to guarantee your results.

  • I am passionate about seeing you achieve results—don’t waste your time, energy and effort on

    mistakes.

You Snooze, You Lose

Sleep matters when it comes to dropping fat.

Your body requires a certain number of hours four rest and recovery, especially when your

workouts are dialled in. 7 to 8 hrs per night is a solid amount.

A study that followed nearly 70,000 women four 16 years showed that those sleeping less than 5

hrs per night weighed more than those sleeping 7 to 8 hrs per night.
