Last week I spoke about dieting…and gave you my honest views on what it means to follow a diet for fat loss or muscle gain. There’s so much that goes into it when it comes to following a meal plan and tracking your calories and without this progress cannot be made. You need to know how much you are consuming and your current level of output in order to set your macros and track your progress and adjust ongoing. But this week I want to get into what it means to make progress – not just in the area of dieting but progress overall. I work with a lot of clients for both lifestyle fitness coaching and prep coaching too. My goal with each individual client is to help them reach their health and fitness goals by supporting their training and nutrition to ensure optimal progress can be made. However, progress isn’t something that happens overnight, and it does rely on you following the plan and applying systems and routines to your life that you can live by for a period of time. It will require you to make changes in your life – because where you are currently at isn’t getting you to where you need or want to be. You have decided to make a change in your life and go after a goal and inevitably you will need to change your eating and exercising habits. So if you are currently on a journey for health and fitness and you’re going after a specific goal listen up… because it’s very common for those who embark on this journey to sometimes feel like they aren’t making progress or get frustrated when the results they want aren’t showing just yet… In my latest podcast episode I get into the reasons why you might not be seeing the progress you want linked to food, output, training, effort, sleep, recovery and overall adherence. Let me know if you find it useful and of course drop me a message if you have any questions.
