A simple way to lose fat is to…find out how you are eating and exercising first. Then make a few small changes.
It beats taking on a radically different exercise regime and diet – because that stuff doesn’t usually last. It’s hard to do.
Why is something as simple as writing a quick few lines each day about what you are doing so powerful?
It’s because you and I might not be as disciplined and have the self-control as we think we do…
We don’t see in black in white what we are doing every day because we aren’t taking note of it. And as we usually think taking notes as hassle we don’t realise how important it is for a fat loss plan to do it.
The simple truth is that without knowing what you current are doing to try and get rid of those last inches of fat, you won’t know what to change to achieve better results.
Because it is just so worth it in the end. A little effort regularly really gives you that insight and awareness…especially when you look back over all the short entries (not talking about a Captain’s Log here!)…and see how much progress you’ve made..
And it may be that in a short while all you do is write a single line or a brief bullet list of what exercises the workout contained…and how you felt you have performed…instead of a detailed table about what calories you saved…
Even the process of writing every day…or at least doing it a few times a week produces a great habit of self-discipline and control…
And it’s this that keeps you on track for your fat loss plan…even if when you talk about it with your mates they might think it sounds like you are a a bit of the compulsive side!
Well, as is often the story they’re the ones who could do with getting rid of some of their weight, getting into shape and having better discipline!
Just remember: keeping even a one-liner a day log is enough for you to see how much you exercise and if it is matching the changes in your body…
And remember that it also subsconsciously reinforces your fat loss plan…and without having to spend more than 5 minutes of your time!
