Have you ever put in the work but then been disappointed with your results?
You stuck to the diet.
You completed the training sessions.
You followed all the rules.
But you didn’t see the outcomes you wanted to.
You didn’t lose the weight.
You didn’t build the strength.
You didn’t perform as expected.
Possibly even a bit annoyed or mad.
You might feel like a failure.
You might feel like you were misled or cheated.
You followed the plan.
So, what now?
How do you move forward?
What do you take away from this?
There are countless reasons things might not have gone how you wanted.
Your training might not be appropriate for the rest of your lifestyle.
Your diet might not be appropriate for your training or vice versa.
Maybe you’ve been under too much stress lately.
Your sleep might not be up to par.
It could be that it just wasn’t a good plan.
Situations such as these are far from uncommon.
They’re probably the norm, actually.
Rarely health and fitness goals achieved on the first try.
Often, not even on the first, second, or third.
There’s so much trial and error.
So much experimentation.
So much failure.
So much picking yourself up.
So much trying again.
Showing up again and again.
Figuring out what works for you.
You might not lose the weight.
You might not build the strength.
You might not set the personal record.
But you can do the work.
You can track your progress.
You can modify as necessary.
You can only control what you do.
What happens from there is out of your control.
You are worthy of the best life.
Making that happen will be a process.
It depends on myriad factors that you can’t affect.
So, do what you can.
Focus on you.
It will take time.
It will take effort.
It will take grit.
You’re up to the challenge.
You’ve got this.
