How To Build Training Consistency

Not everyone has the willpower and determination to tackle each training session with the same passion and rage as Arnold did. And that’s fine. For you, having training motivation might be a constant battle between putting your feet up after a long day in the office versus dragging your ass into the gym.

Story of a Recovering Fitness Addict

There’s a reason why I preach a reasonable approach to health and fitness: I know how it is when life is not in balance. Throughout my twenties, I was obsessed with fitness. I missed out on a lot of awesome stuff because on most occasions I chose the gym when others went to do something else. I combined that with healthy eating taken too far, and it snowballed. When you combine too much, sometimes forced, training with a strict diet, it adds up to a dysfunctional, unhappy life.

It's So Easy

 

You get nothing for nothing if that’s what you do. – It’s So Easy, GN’R
Anything worth striving for takes work. You have an image how you would like to look or be. Lean, sexy, muscular, sizzling, chiseled, brave, strong. The sky is the limit when describing your future self. But these are just words and no matter how many inspirational quotes you read or post on Facebook it won’t get you very far. You can read all the books in the world and pay for all the possible advice but if you don’t take action nothing ever changes.

Fat Loss Is Not About Willpower

Fat Loss Is Not About Willpower

You’ve set yourself a clear goal to reach your health goal in six months. You’ve know that the biggest road block is your appetite for sweets at work. You’re motivated, committed and maxed out on willpower.
Until the first busy afternoon at work when your stress levels are through the roof. You start fancying a thought of a sweet sweet chocolate goodness. You try not to think of that vending machine loaded with chocolate bars. Or that bowl of chocolates in the break room. But no matter how hard you try the chocolate goodness creeps back in your head until it become impossible to resist. So you give in and make the vending machine sing, but only today. Because tomorrow you’re stronger, more motivated, even more committed and full of willpower.
And then tomorrow afternoon rolls around and you repeat the same cycle. Same thing happens over and over again. Why is that and what to do about it? To find an answer we have to revisit a couple of studies from the past.

Bedtime Ritual – Better Sleep Better EVERYTHING (Step by Step Guide)

Bedtime Ritual

In the past I’ve written about the importance of having a morning routine to set you up for the day ahead. Think of yourself as an athlete going to a big match, instead that your match is the big business meeting that’ll happen at 10.30am. Yes, you’ll have to plan and “train” for it but you also need to be mentally ready. Getting in the right head space before getting to work (or other place important) can help you with that.

Today however we’ll focus on building a similar routine before hitting the slumbertown at night.

Thoughts on Habits, Road and The Destination

Thoughts on Habits, Road and The Destination

Thoughts on
It’s a no secret that I like to emphasize clients to work on a one habit at a time to eventually get them to their goals. Sometimes the habit might seem trivial but it’s all about focusing on each step and building a list of successful habits overtime that will align with where you want to get to. It’s all about knowing your destination and adjusting the road as you travel to get there.

Get Better Results by Focusing on the Positive

Get Better Results by Focusing on the Positive

 

It’s a funny little thing, being positive. People with positive attitude have the best outlook on life no matter what the situation they’re in. We all know some of these people. I can think of one right know and I can’t think of a single moment I’ve seen them upset, always smile on their face. I like to think myself as some-what positive but I wish I could be like them. However, it must be the Finnish in me that stops me from achieving that kind of outlook, yet. It’s a work in progress and I am getting better. I think.

Compare that to the cynical and negative folks who see the bad in every situation, even in great ones. Each of us knows some of these people. They’re the ones who’s company makes you feel like you have a pair of shoes on made out of lead. Again, I can think of one right know. Even thinking about them makes me feel lethargic. These are the folks you do not want to hangout with, ever.
So, when you focus on the positive you’ll be happier and more enthusiastic about life in general and others around you will feel the same. This doesn’t mean that you always need to be super happy, praising joy to the world, blasting in eternal sunshine while riding unicorns farting rainbows.
