Being almost 4 complete weeks into the Whole Life Challenge it has to be extremely frustrating to hear that some of our athletes have already experienced some huge successes, while you may not have noticed any yet. Several of our athletes are building on double digit weight losses, others have had the best sleep in years, clothes are fitting better (in some cases new wardrobes) and others are simply waking up in the morning fresh, hydrated and energized to attack the day.
So what else besides “Be patient” do I have to say to those of you that haven’t noticed any changes yet? I would highly advise you take a moment to re-evaluate your intentions, goals, expectations and ensure all of your efforts are geared to get you where you want to be.
For example, I personally have a serious weight loss goal for this 8 week challenge. So beyond keeping up with my workout time in the gym, I’ve added in some endurance training each week. I started out by performing a 10 minute run on my off days and have built upon that to include a 5k run each week. This week I hope to get two 5k runs assuming the weather holds out. I’ve also added in a few extra minutes on the rowing machine. By making these simple changes to my workout routine, I’ve been able to have great success in my weight loss goal.
“And as we’ve mentioned before, mediocre efforts yield mediocre results.”
