🌱Growth Thoughts:

If goals are destinations, habits are the pathways.

Having a goal is the start of change.
“I want to lose 30lbs.”

Once you establish a goal, the next step is to change your habits.
What we do daily determines how our future looks like.

If you want to become a leaner version of yourself, find habits that align with who you want to be. Immerse yourself with repeatable habits.

When thinking about habits, Here are some things to think about:
How often does this person train? How does training look like?
What does this person’s meals look like?
How does this person carry him/herself at a family dinner?
How does this person deal with stress?

Yes they have unsustainable diets where you eliminate certain food groups. 30 day challenges. Detox teas, cleanses, and weight loss pills.
The problem with shortcuts are that they don’t solve the bigger problem of changing who you are.

“I just want a head start.”
“I’m just going to try it then go to something more sustainable after.”

But for those trying to lose weight, losing weight isn’t the hard part.
It’s about becoming the person who didn’t need to lose weight in the first place.
