#84 - Suck It Up, Buttercup - How Bad Do You Want It?
6 days ago
What's REALLY Stopping you? If your fitness journey isn't producing the results you were hoping for... you may have to reassess your attitude, your priorities, and honestly ask yourself - how bad do you want it? You could call it "failure to launch". I'll cut right to the chase - FitWife Megan and I are having a particularly rough go of it lately. We're 3 and a half months in and we're not nearly as far along as we expected we'd be. Needless to say - we're not getting the results we'd hoped for. If we're being honest with ourselves... we know why. Nobody said it'd be easy. We, of course, knew going into this that it wouldn't be "easy", after all - we've done this before! With great success, I might add. This time, for many reasons, has just been so much harder. Part of that difficulty has been our own fault. We've made excuses, we drag our feet on a regular basis, and we just generally aren't approaching this with anything you could call "enthusiasm" or "drive". "Suck it up, Buttercup." Frankly, we need to get our sh*t together and quit whining. We know what we need to do (mostly), we know we have the time necessary to get it done, and whatever pieces we're missing or in need of fine-tuning... we have the knowledge necessary to make it happen. So, really, what we need to ask ourselves is this - "How bad do you want it?" And THAT, all of that, is exactly the conversation we have on this week's episode. We do sort of a post-mortem on the last 3 and a half months of the journey (mostly FitWife Megan's) and determine how to move forward. For the full blog post and show notes visit the blog here.
