#WildWinning

Everyone is so quick to talk negatively about their body, their exercise results, their food... everything. We are English! Your body hears everything your mind thinks so if you are talking negative, your body will feed on that energy. Buck that right now.

Your mission right now is to properly celebrate the little wins. That doesn’t mean telling everyone on social media that you’ve gone to the gym to take selfies or you’ve cooked a bit of fish with some broccoli and rice.... again. Celebrate the little wins yourself. Say I came and I did so I rock! It’s about you!

It is not about getting approval from your friends online. What if no one responds to your posts about being so healthy. What if someone attacks you online for rubbish form. It will just become a negative and a reason to give up. Sharing about your healthy choices on social media works for some people but for the majority that I see seeking to create a new identity as a fit person through broadcasting it regularly online give up pretty quickly.

Instead... we are all now positive ninjas that celebrate the good and forget the bad. Keep it simple. Just choose some realistic activities you are going to WANT to do regularly to become more active. Make sure it’s fun. Keep it varied so you don’t get bored. Do some stuff you’ve never tried. Martial arts. Dancing. Rock climbing. Being fit doesn’t mean the gym or running.

Think of exercise as anything that is a physical expression of your personality.

If you don’t know what that means go and find a good personal trainer that can show you. Good trainers aren’t just fit. They know different types of fitness. Avoid the “I’m a runner so we run”... “I’m a lifter so we lift”... “I stretch lots so stretch with me... and so on type of trainers. 

Find inspiration. It’s a lot more powerful than motivation. Motivation is just someone trying to get you to do something you don’t want to do. Find someone that can show you something you want to do. Move towards a positive. Not away from a negative. “I want to be fit because it’s my time”. Not “I don’t want to feel fat and weak anymore”.

Food. Harder for most people than exercise. In my head I don’t expect to eat perfectly... ever. We live in a world, and lead lifestyles that makes that almost impossible. What makes it worse is through education we become more aware of how bad the naughty choices are for us.

You know what is worse than eating a cookie.... stressing about eating the cookie for a day and how it ruined your “good streak” which is your justification for giving up and going back to the cookie jar to eat the rest of the cookies, with a bottle of wine!

Eat the cookie, and forget the cookie

Go to the gym with an extra cookie in the tank to absolutely smash your workout... and laugh about how hard it is to burn off one cookie. Cool thing about it being hard work, is that you can still do it, because you are bad ass!

Anything you want takes one thing. It's always the same thing and it's the only thing that people never seem to want to accept. Flat stomach. Bigger muscles. Smaller thighs, more strength, better flexibility, abs.

Time. Time is the only thing you need. 

We all have the same amount of time. We all struggle with how we manage it... but managing it is exactly what we must do to get the most out of our time. Re think you time. Re focus. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO HAPPEN. 

A bitesize fitness routine

This came from our new Wild Training Online system which is free for people to sign up to. New programs every month and tips on nutrition. Exclusive offers too. Videos available when you sign up. Super simple workouts. Not too many exercises but when you use these combinations the body gets a real shock and the protocol is one of the most famous HIIT/interval systems ever. Metabolisms will go through the roof as will oxygen burn which means great fat burning. Plenty of time under tension too so muscles will change shape and tone up.

#WildWinning! Do one of each blast 3 times a week and you are doing great. Do two of each blast 4 times per week and you are going pro!
