Here is my fifth and final blog on why people seem to have such good intentions, but get such poor results. In each blog I give both the problem and the solution. If you missed this series, here’s a recap…
#5: Selectively Disciplined: They’re work harder in the gym, than the kitchen.
This person likely enjoys working out, or at least doesn’t mind it. As a result, they are the first to post their insane workouts and share their their hard work, so people can see their amazing efforts. As a result, people feel so sorry for this type of person when they find out they aren’t losing weight because they see how hard they work. This person looks like they have great intentions but the gods are just not on this person’s sides. (and if you know me, that’s supposed to be funny since I only believe in one God, not mystical gods that help people lose weight).
OK, so back to this hard worker. The problem is, this person fully believes they should be able to control their weight with exercise – and while exercise is helpful and can improve health, it is no competition for food. Exercise will always lose. Or, they are in denial, and think they are eating healthier, and eating fewer calories, than they truly are.
Solution: This person needs to understand that tough exercise is not enough when it comes to weight loss. They can be a maniac on the aerobics floor (my FlashDance throwback), but until they are a maniac in the kitchen, they will never 100% reap the benefits of their hard work. It’s time for this person to go all the way with their fitness – both in the gym and at the dinner table.
