The hardest thing for any human to do is change. I'm sure someone famous said that somewhere, sometime. It's hard for me to imagine that I coined that phrase myself. Regrdless of who said it 1st, it's true. If your used to doing things a certain way, it's extremely difficult to change those ways.
Personally I work daily to change the bad in me to good. Ok that's bullshit. I probably don't work daily at it, but I do, every so often, make an effort to change what's wrong with me when others are watching. There that's more along the lines of the majority of people. We try to do what's right when "others" are around. Usually strangers. Do you fart on the bus? Maybe one slips out every now and then but it's not on purpose.
So now that we've established the difficulty of change itself, let's discuss the what. What do you want to change? In my industry, when asked that question most people look at their mid section, drop their shoulders in shame and say, "This" (gesturing to unwanted belly fat). Now how did that get there? Did that belly fat jump on you as you walked into my office? Was it because you don't own a dumbbell that you shake back and forth over your head? Or maybe shoes that return energy from the blah blah blah. No. Clearly the reason for the unwanted fat is due to ingesting too much while burning too little.
If the reason is simple than shouldn't the solution be simple as well. Usually yes. The problem is that the unwanted fat, accumulated over time and you want it to go away NOW. Therein lies the difficulty.
You didn't always eat the way you eat. You used to challenge yourself. Push yourself to the limit until you got the result you were looking for. Most of you are now thinking, "Yeah, when I was in college I was a go-getter! Believe it! Achieve it! Yeah!". No. I'm talking about babies. They eat every 2-3 hours, they nap afterwards, and they challenge themselves until they get the results they are innately looking for. I don't know if you know this but babies can't walk. Some can't stand, but they stay in the fight until they CAN stand. They hold on to the rail of the crib, legs shaking, pushing and pulling their way to the top. They fall right on their butts and start all over again.
So now I ask, "What the hell happened to you?!". Why do you give up so fast now. A little burn in your legs and your ready to give up. I told you change was difficult.
You gradually started eating twice a day. You were hungry when you first did it but you told yourself you needed to get your work done. Now you believe it. Its true. Your body has adjusted to your new eating schedule. In return, you have less motivation for exercise.
So how do you gradually change back? Well put the vibrating dumbbell down, along with the breakfast and dinner meal plan. Start eating like a baby. Smaller meals spread out over the course of your day. Use common sense before scientific studies, later we can get to the specifics of things. Start working out on a regular basis. Two times a week, then three times a week, after 2 months, increase the weights that your using OR decrease the rest time in between sets. This may be the most difficult part of all in our fast paced world. Go to sleep! Your bills, problems with work, spouse and children will be there in the morning. Well maybe not the spouse, but all your problems will be there.
Exercise doesn't have to be, Up, Down, Push, Pull! If that's all your trainer has then your trainer sucks. Maybe they start you there but eventually you should be doing some very dynamic things. On the other hand if you can't do a full pushup, your legs wobble during squats and you tell your trainer, "I'm bored. Can we do something else?" then you better believe your trainer is thinking, " I'm bored can I train SOMEONE else?"
Ladies, stop whining and get stronger. Guys, stop whining and get stronger. Stop sounding like a baby. Start acting like a baby by pushing yourself until you see the results you were looking for. That's real fitness!
