Hi guys,  Kris from Custom Fitness here, your Amarillo personal trainer. Today we’re going to be talking about the one thing, or what is the one thing that you can stop doing today that’s going to help you achieve your goals? This is going to be the first part in a two part series, so be on the lookout for part two coming soon. And if you have any questions about today’s blog, then please give us a call at (806)-322-3188

There are so many things as Americans that we feel like we need to add in. We’re constantly trying to find the solution and we’re trying to add something to our lives, and we’re trying to figure out how much more we can do, and what we can do with it. The problem is, sometimes we just have too much going on, and we need to take a moment to think about what we can take away.

Often times an easy way to look at this is, I’ll have clients come in, and they feel like if they get a new water bottle, or they get a new piece of equipment, or they get something new, that they’ll be able to stay on track with their goals, where we can sit down and talk about the fact that those things aren’t going to be a good addition to what they have. They really just need to put their minds towards what they’re doing and they’ll be just fine.

I have other people come in, they say, I have no equipment, so obviously I can’t do this. I need to get things before I can do this. The problem with that is, no you don’t, because you can use your body weight. You can use the foods that you do have, you can use the mentality that you do have. There’s a lot of things that we already have. We don’t need to add to it.

Beginning a health and fitness regimen can be kind of tricky sometimes, because honestly, you’re trying to add something into your life that you haven’t made time for before, for whatever reason. It’s not a bad thing. It’s just that’s where we’re at. Adding something in can be kind of tricky.

Whenever I think about the one thing that people could stop doing today, there’s several things that come to mind. One is procrastinating. Begin to act. Whenever we procrastinate we put things off just because they don’t seem like something that we really want to do, or something that we really understand how to do. Maybe we don’t understand how to fit it into our schedule, or understand how to fit it into our budget and those kinds of things.

Procrastinating is a big one that keeps people from reaching their goals. Just because you can’t do one option, doesn’t mean that there’s not another option out there for you. It just may take a little more thought and time to find it.

Stop over complicating things. It’s time to simplify. Again, you don’t have to have big fancy equipment. You don’t have to have a big fancy gym membership. You gotta have you. That’s all. You and a mentality that you are going to do this, this time. There’s so many resources out there, some good, some bad, obviously to get help on exercise, nutrition, healthy living, mindset, habit coaching, you name it. But if you start to take the process of simplifying, then you can actually get to your goals instead of over complicating with millions of different resources. That’s kind of a step we take, is we bring all that information in for our clients and simplify it for them so that they have just a cut and dry program of what to follow, and they’re not trying to search online for every other little thing.

Stop making excuses. Instead of making excuses to why you can’t, find a reason that you can. It doesn’t matter if it’s an hour workout, if it’s a 30 minute workout, if it’s a 10 minute workout. If it’s getting you started, that’s all that matters. Maybe you went outside and were active for 10 minutes today. Congratulations, that’s an awesome start. Just moving one step at a time, 1% at a time, being a little bit better every day, that’s your goal.

You’re not meant to make a whole life switch and flip your life upside down in one day. But, over time, we can take millions of tiny steps to get us to where we want to be, and it’s an amazing process as we allow it to take a little more time, because it starts to integrate into who we are, and just how we believe in ourselves through that time.
