I’m currently cutting weight and leaning out.
(I just finished a “bulk” phase)
I’m two weeks into this cut and I was thinking about something today that I never really mention very often..
When I’m knee-deep in a goal, like cutting weight..
I can sometimes take a bit of a militant approach..
I’m always talking about being persistent and relentless and never allowing yourself excuses…
Blah, blah, blah..
BUT.. I forget that I rarely start out that way on day one.
Beginnings aren’t usually that straight forward, they’re messy, you’re still figuring it out.
..not what to do, but how to get yourself to WANT to do it.
The most important thing when you start a new goal is ᴄᴏɴꜱɪꜱᴛᴇɴᴄʏ.
No my diet wasn’t 100% the last two weeks..
I didn’t nail my macros every day, I didn’t always get all my water in, my workouts weren’t as intense as intended..
But I don’t expect them to be in the beginning, I just expect to keep AIMING for a 100% day after day.
As long as you can do that, the habit, the routine, the discipline.. all of the rest will come.
That’s all, I like to keep it short and to the point on here.
Just wanted to remind you that no one starts out perfect, but continuing to strive for it is what will set you apart.
