Mish is here to tell you why it’s time to get serious NOW. She’s made a special video all about it! In 2015 who do you want to be: a ‘gunna’ or a ‘doer’? We all know a ‘gunna’. “I’m gunna sign up for a fun run,” “I’m gunna lose 10 kilos,” “I’m gunna, gunna, gunna.” They talk a big game but rarely act on anything. ‘Doers’, on the other hand, set a goal, show up and get things done.
Ask yourself: What do I really want to achieve in 2015? How do I want to feel in three months’ time? Six months’ time? When the countdown happens next New Year’s Eve? Now is the time to get focused on what you want out of this year.
Here Are 5 Reasons Why It’s Time To Get Serious
The Year is NOT Over
In fact, it’s just beginning! If you lost focus over the craziness of summer, remember there’s still the entire year ahead of you. A year in which you can achieve some seriously awesome stuff.
You ARE Worth It
It’s easy to get distracted with school holidays, summer events, family and friends visiting, holidays … arghhh! But now’s your chance to turn the focus back on you and what YOU want to achieve in 2015 and beyond. Why should you do that? Well, it’s just like the L’Oréal ad says: “Because I’m worth it!”
Your Resolutions Can Still Be Achieved…
Did you set your resolutions or intentions for 2015 back on January 1? Have you somehow forgotten about them, or lost focus? That’s totally fine. Life happens! But now it’s all about regrouping and realising that with some work, those resolutions can become REALITY.
…By Midway Through The Year, Actually
Join our 12WBT team for the March Round (which kicks off March 16), and by June you’ll have made huge STRIDES towards being the best version of yourself. How good will that feel?! Even better – sign yourself up for an event in June (check out our running calendar [add link] for inspiration) and train towards it.
And don’t forget that completing your Pre-Season Tasks [link to https://www.12wbt.com/blog/advice/youll-love-power-pre-season/] will prepare you fully for the 12 weeks of the Round, and will help you shrug off those excuses you’ve been using to put this off. By the time the Round starts, you’ll be be ready to get serious!
A lot of people are all talk, no action. As Mish says, be a man or woman of your word! Losing weight or achieving new fitness goals doesn’t just happen – trust us!! It takes focus, work and dedication. But most of all it takes that first step to commit to yourself, and GET SERIOUS!
If you’re serious about your health and fitness goals, join 12WBT and make 2015 your year of CHANGE!!
Im hoping to lose 5 to 10 kg with very little support from my husband it is going to be hard
We have lots of members who have partners and/or families who are not interested in actively supporting them in doing a Round of 12WBT and that’s ok. Although it’s certainly nice to have your loved ones’ support, it is not necessary for you to achieve success in weight loss – ultimately that rests on you! If you are the primary maker of meals, then you have control over this area – and you can just follow the 12WBT Meal Plans Cooking for 2 and your hubby ends up eating what you eat (secret support if you like!). If he doesn’t want to eat the 12WBT meals (this would be unlikely/unusual as most members report that their families love the 12WBT meals), you can change your Meal Plan to be Cooking for 1 and hubby can make his own meals (this usually elicits support anyway, as they generally don’t want to make their own!). If you have children and your husband is not prepared to mind them while you do your exercise, you could get up early in the morning before the kids get up and do your training then. Alternatively lots of gyms offer creches so you could use that while you train, or take the kids with you for a walk (pushing prams is great cardio!) or to the park while you do your session there (we have Outdoors training locations on most of our Fitness Programs). Hope this helps!
