I knew they went to the gym nearly every day, and I knew they counted calories. I remember thinking, if I could get to the gym at least 5-6 days a week, and I committed to eating low-fat, low-calorie everything, I would look like them too.
So, I joined a gym. I dieted. I counted calories and I obsessed over all the little details we’re taught to obsess over in order to hit our goals.
I focused on exercise, diet, perfection. In that order. Because according to my skinny friends and all the magazines, if I just had the discipline to exercise frequently and diet religiously, I would see the results I wanted.
It wasn’t until I stopped losing weight and started feeling fatigued for no apparent reason, that I realized I was doing it all wrong. I was focusing on the wrong things.
Losing fat wasn’t about how hard I could go in the gym, it was about how I viewed myself, my body, and the special ways I took care of it. It started with my mindset, continued with adequate nutrition, and rounded out with exercise.
Fitness magazines and fad diets will have you thinking if you run on the treadmill like a hamster, you’ll get the body of your dreams. It just doesn’t work that way.
Mindset and nutrition trump hours in the gym any day. It’s time to start focusing on the things that matter in order to see the results you desire.
