If I said to you, train 5 days a week.
Track your calories perfectly every single day.
Wake up and walk half an hour in the morning before work.
Drink 3 litres of water every day.
When you are only just starting as a beginner, it would be a bit much don’t you think?
Maybe you will be able you do it for a couple weeks, but mostly like you would fail.
In a perfect world, being able to do the exact thing we need to do to achieve our goals week after week from day one without fail would be great.
Going from 0-100 is a very difficult thing though and this is one reason why a lot of people fail new workout programs or diets.
Any change needs to be done so gradually, and consistency needs to be built up over time.
Rather than setting yourself the goal of training 5 days a week, start with three.
Once you can do that week after week, go for four, then 5.
When starting a new nutritional plan, do not go on a super restricted diet straight away.
Gradually decrease the number of calories you are consuming and work on building positive habits that make up your daily lifestyle.
Remember, anyone that you see or know that trains well week after week and gets great results started just where you are as a beginner.
Just focus each week on progressing in some way.
Rather then sprinting when you are only still just learning how to crawl.
Before you know it, going to the gym and living a healthy lifestyle will simply just be apart you who you are and what you do.
