    New Year - New You: Step by Step

    New Years Resolutions

    This is the best time start a new program. Follow the below to ensure success!

    1. Reflections: Not just what you see in the mirror. Take a good look at the past. Focus on the positives and learn from the mistakes.

    2. Set Goals: Be honest with yourself. What can you realistically do this year? Believe in it.

    3. Make a Plan: Most fail to set phases properly. These things take time. Don't just jump into a crash diet. Set your schedule up properly.

    4. Execute: Start up and don't stop. Your will to change has to be greater than your will to stay the same. Keep motivated.

    5. Evaluate: Whether it be weekly or monthly, check in with your progress. Blog it, photo it, calculate it. Track your progress.

    It might look simple but I know many intelligent people who set themselves up for failure right off the bat.

    I wish everyone a great new year!

    Train Smart!
    Bodybuilding isn't about competing against others... it's about besting yourself mentally, physically and spiritually. I'd rather place last knowing I did everything I could, rather than first knowing I didn't.

    Great post!

    So simple......so hard to follow for most. It’s all about being consistent with an effort. You put in the time and make good nutritional choices on a consistent basis....the changes can come quite quickly. That and don’t fall for magic pills or try to boil the ocean (many people tend to focus on the small things that really have little affect on the big picture because they heard it from a friend or read something online about the latest fad)

    Nothing ever works as well as hard work and being consistent.

    True.

    It comes down to your will.

    If your will to change is greater than your will to stay the same, you will reach your goals.

    I have seen this in so many people, what's interesting is how this will changes or slides the other way once they see results.

    They become comfortable with a look and then relax. This leads to the yo-yo effect.

    You have to stay committed and use the change as motivation, rather than excuse to relax.

    Ever deal with this kind of thing........

    Helped out family friend with diet exercise program. Nothing fancy just focus on cutting out most crap and eating well and balanced along with upping protein. Training routine pretty standard but changed up regularly so as not to become static.

    She followed this for 9months and made incredible progress. She then stepped back away from this as she got pregnant with her first child and doctor told her that she shouldn’t train. With that the eating went too.

    Baby came and was healthy and now she is back on the train. However now she is a self proclaimed expert in all things diet and exercise. Like expert to the point where she would be giving you advice...lol!

    9months =‘s expert?!

    It drives me batshit crazy!

    Very good advice.

    I know so many people who simply give up when they're on the cusp of achievement. Or sabotage their goals, but moments of weakness and insecurity.

    Great things are never easy otherwise they'd be ordinary.

    It's always good to be reminded of what's important. Confident people... achievers... don't hear criticisms, they hear advice (from the right people of course.)

    Those of us who partake in AAS... those of us who dedicate themselves in the gym are already 90% ahead of the general population.

    Even trying to explain the passion for fitness is a waste of time to people who spend more time fretting about what to shove down their throats.

    It's one of the reasons I come to the forums. I don't have a group of friends who work out like I do. They aren't dedicated like I AM. Passionate about it like I am.

    When you're living outside the box you need to find solace and like minds in that ether.

    And give it more credence than those who will shit on your dreams while shoving a donut in their mouths.

    This is actually not a bad situation to be in. The alternative of course being she no longer wants to train #mombod.

    There is no shortage of confident people in the fitness industry. Applaud her drive and desire.

    Keep thinking about that alternative I mentioned above when she starts to drive you nuts.
