#BEGREATGUYS Tip #10 Making It A HABIT

Can’t expect to start something for only a few days — you have to make it a “lifestyle” change aka habit/routine. 

We can all start something, but how long before you decide to give up or try a new method? Fitness works the same way, if you want results; patience has to form along with being able to give it a go for longer than a few days. Nothing is given without the effort; you have to make fitness/ your health a part of your everyday, it can’t be for a month & expect long term changes, it needs to be for a lifetime if you want to be healthy for a lifetime. 

The problem is, everyone wants something “quick” & “easy” but what people forget is, there is no magical pill, or supplement that will do all the work for you (not even steroids) you have to be the one to put in the work if you want something to happen. Time is not on our sides, I know this but there is always time to take care of yourself — the smallest forms of doing so can bring the best results if you keep at it & make it routine. There is this saying that ‘after 21 days of doing something, it becomes habit’ & making exercise & eating a good nutritional meal is a good habit to have for the longevity. Once something becomes a lifestyle change, something that just happens without thought — it makes the process of reaching goals so much easier. 

habits are formed best with routine & self discipline. In order to make time for your health and well-being, you need to add it to your schedule FIRST, then you need to DO IT, and then you need to make it a priority in your life; that way you live the best life you can & feel the best.

BEGREATGUYS Tip #9 Acceptance but not complacent

We have come quite a long ways; to a point where most people on social media seem to be more positive towards others bodies and choices of sport, and their lifestyle choices. Even more beautiful is the self love I see on social media from men and women alike, who have stood up to the bullies and have chosen to speak on how they don’t feel any less self confident with themselves anymore because they have chosen to love who they are — I know body shaming still exist on and off social media; and it probably won’t cease anytime soon, but when I see how people choose to handle it, it makes me smile because everyone’s body and genetic make up is different & we never really know another person’s journey. Saying this, I have decided that there are two things that I believe are important when it comes to the body & how one should treat it. 

  1. Acceptance – In other words accepting your body for all the flaws it may have, being able to accept the fact that we are all different & unique; that we can’t compare ourselves to others because each journey is different & each person has their obstacles. Our genetic make up can be a curse or it can be a blessing/ or perhaps a mix of both but it is who we are before we work towards changing it. Accepting your body today, tomorrow and in the future will bring a more positive perspective & learning to accept someone else’s body is showing that you respect their choice even if you don’t agree with it. 
  2. NOT staying complacent – This is where you change what you want to make better & learn from trial/error what works best for your body. While you have accepted its flaws, does not mean you cannot work towards progress and make new results that will make you feel much more confident inside & out. Choosing to not be complacent means you want growth & growth means you constantly want to be the best person you can be. Success is golden if you aim for better but not perfect & sometimes even if results don’t come when you plan on it, they come when you least expect it and challenge you to keep pushing even when the odds are stacked against you. While accepting another person’s body flaws and lifestyle choices is respectful, it doesn’t mean you can’t motivate them to want to better themselves — maybe a simple understanding of where they started and where they are now & where they see themselves will be enough to encourage them to keep going. 

As a personal trainer & athlete, I have taught myself to love my body even on bad days but to always seek for improvement — because improvement is possible. If I want something bad enough, I work towards it at a reasonable pace that works best for me. I have taught my clients to say positive things about their bodies but to demand the change they want to see by working towards their goals with my help. The more we teach ourselves to accept the flaws but go after changes that allow us to grow; I believe it will create a body positive experience.
