This week, before I go on holiday for a couple of weeks, I want to give you one last gentle nudge to help you get started with your health, fitness & weight loss goals before Christmas ( which is 10 weeks away FYI!)
Today’s topic also relates to Emma’s success story that I’ve been writing about each week and that is… having someone believe in you. Slightly different from having someone to be accountable to because unfortunately an ‘accountability buddy’ won’t necessarily be a positive influence (it would be most helpful if they are though!)
What I mean by this is that you have a champion for you, your progress and your long term goals. Someone to praise you, be inspired by you and inspiring for you, motivate you and pick you up when you’re not at your best. And celebrate the small achievements and not just the big successes. This person wouldn’t let you off the hook, criticise if you don’t meet your short term targets, compare you to others when it isn’t helpful or compete with you.
They simply believe in you and your goals and are willing to voice that.
Emma has built up a fantastic support network at onesixeight: fitness and on Facebook and this has definitely helped with her confidence, self esteem and belief in herself. She has people around her that praise her and champion her to keep going and ultimately that has helped her adherence to the programme and results in success along the way.
And so this week, even if we’ve never met and we maybe never will – I just want to say “I believe in you”. I believe that you CAN achieve anything you put your mind to, you just have to DO it.
So please, whilst I’m away enjoying some sunshine after my Half Marathon please take the first step or the next step to achieving your fitness & weight loss goals… because I believe you CAN do it.
Have a great couple of weeks!
