Here are 5 tips to help you stay focused on your weight loss goals.
1. LISTEN TO YOUR COACH – Sometimes people have the best intentions in hiring a coach BUT they battle and question the coach consistently – know the reasons why you hired a coach in the first place and reflect on your ‘old ways’. Did your old ways work for you in the past?
2. COMMUNICATION – Occasionally clients forget about this part and just want the next phase of workouts or nutrition. How can your coach know what the next phase is for you if the coach doesn’t know your stats or progress? Communication is the KEY! (** I will never send out plans without updates from my clients)
5. ACCEPT FAILURES – If you fall off track for any reason, accept it and get back on plan. Be truthful with yourself (and your coach) and don’t think it’s the end of the world. Your coach is there to guide you (and reasonably help you) but can’t make decisions for you. Make note of it but continue back on plan. If you are constantly cheating (i.e. snacking or drinking alcohol) it’s time to assess your commitment level.
