“I get results then I lose focus and take my foot off the accelerator??”

A prospective client said to me recently:

I start to see results but then for whatever reason, something always happens to take my focus, or I relax and then take the foot off the accelerator.

In this video I am going to share with you how to identify and overcome the common mindset beliefs, and practical food and exercise missteps that keep high performing women in business constantly falling off the bandwagon when it comes to making time for their healthy habits.

This destructive pattern is exactly what holds you back from living in your best, most vibrant, toned, healthy and fit feeling body.

I’m going to show you the key to How you can stay motivated and be consistent with your healthy eating habits – so that 80% you’re eating nourishing food and exercising, and 20% of the time you can relax and enjoy yourself WITHOUT sabotaging and just losing focus and ending up back to square one all the time.

This is not what your local GP will tell you…

Or the fitness models on Instagram will tell you..

But – it IS what any holistic health professional who understands positive psychology takes their clients through for long lasting and sustainable results.

One of my clients Gilli used this exact process to release 26 kilos in 6 months – and she had been on and off dieting for years – and she could lose sometimes 4 kilos in a week for an event, but then she would always blow out and return back to that weight within a few weeks. And sometimes she’d end up heavier than she was before! All that effort – just wasted.

It was this obsessive food rules and stressing about her body. This fluctuating between strict paleo, or weekend binges at weddings that was creating havoc with her body, her hormones and her self esteem. Fast forward 3 years on, she’s not only kept that weight off, but lost another 5 or so to the point where she only has fitness goals these days, and for the first time since she was a young adult she doesn’t have a weight loss goal.

 

The 3 main problems I see busy, successful professional women struggle with:

1. You work really hard so want a stress release and that often comes in the form of food and wine and it’s really hard to resist that temptation.

And that’s totally understandable if you don’t want to live a life always eating LCHF or on a strict macro balancing diet. You’re right – life is worth living and you do deserve that glass of wine, or that cappuccino, or that beautiful rich meal at a restaurant with friends – but if you don’t have a plan that accommodates those lifestyle values you’ll always struggle.

 

2. You know what to do but you just don’t do it.

And I get that – when you’ve done all the diets, and the results have worked in the past for a while – but now you’re back at square one, climbing that mountain and all the meal prep, and the sweat and blood and tears all over again. It’s enough to send you straight back into the arms of chocolate, chips and wine at even the THOUGHT of going on another diet.

 

3. You’re ALL or NOTHING and struggle with finding a happy medium.

You’re at an age that you know that there are more important things in life than punishing yourself with a strict diet. At the same time you can be worried and know you need to prioritise your health – but for the life of you you just can’t seem to do it. It just takes a turn into boring and blah town and ends up being just another thing on the to-do list and not a very enjoyable one at that.

These are really understandable reasons why it makes it difficult to stick to a health kick longer than a few weeks – but there are a couple of critical ways you can avoid these issues and ensure your long term success.

 

Yes, you CAN have your cake and eat it too!

I mean, what’s the point of having cake if you can’t eat it.

 

If you’re struggling with these issues and kinda beating yourself up about them no wonder – but here’s some cold hard truths:

  • You don’t actually know what to do – you know an outdated, old school, myopic and unsustainable way to trick your body into losing weight for a short period of time.
  • Your plate is overloaded so you’re literally overloading your plate – you need to create some space in your life and create some different strategies on how to manage stress.
  • You need a plan that gives you flexibility around food so weight loss success is not reliant on you being ultra good and “perfect”.

 

If you find yourself being able to be motivated for a few weeks or months, you get some results and then realise you’ve lost focus, or you’ve taken your foot off the accelerator, there are some critical steps you need to be taking into consideration:

1. FORWARD MOTIVATION CLARITY

Get clear on the image of WHAT YOU WANT – not just motivated by the absence of what you DON’T Want.

When you’re not super clear about the end destination of where you want to get to, you’ll find yourself getting halfway there, suddenly now the pain of where you were isn’t so strong, isn’t such a big motivator – and the compulsion to get to where you want to be isn’t clear enough. You kind of just end up being in no man’s land and you’ve got no other mode of operation but to sabotage and end up back to where you were before so that you can then again use “away from” motivation to propel you forward.

 

2. IDENTIFY YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS SABOTAGE TRIGGERS

You need to identify what your subconscious triggers are – what’s so scary about that ideal size/weight. Maybe you associate that with getting unwanted attention, maybe it makes you not feel safe to stand out, maybe it feels like you won’t be any fun if you’re going to be that size/weight. There’s a whole bunch of blocks that may be standing in the way of you actually manifesting your desire.

On the flip side of that, you might actually have a bunch of secondary payoffs of staying stuck with where you are right now. Maybe you get to hide away, maybe you get to sneak under the radar, maybe you get to miss out on the pain of failure, so you don’t even try. All these things can be real interferences getting in the way of what we truly want.

 

3. COME FROM A PLACE OF NOURISHMENT & KINDNESS

It’s only in this place that the sum of all efforts repeated over time can actually accumulate to give you enough momentum to keep you propelling yourself forward. When you use one of those really strict plans where there’s nothing fun or pleasurable programmed into it because you’re trying to punish yourself healthy, that’s what kicks off the All or Nothing pendulum.

You literally set yourself up for failure by using one of those super strict meal plans without being really clear on how you’re going to be nourishing yourself, how you’re going to be kind to yourself, and really understanding the delayed gratification of your efforts.
