1. PLAN, PLAN, PLAN.
Don’t wing it.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Results are what you want so you must map out the very steps that lead to these results. No amount of wishing, hoping or praying can make up for the lack of a plan.
Planning is most important FIRST STEP you can take for doing so allows you to create the road map for your success – for fast and the lasting success.
2. GET RID OF THE SCALE
I would have given up if I was weighing myself every day! That is what sabotaged me in the past.
The scale is just a number – NOT your Value or self worth. At the start of a true fat loss plan, the scale cannot measure the amount of fat lost as you gain lean muscle. Best to stay off the scale and use your Clothes – especially your skinny jeans – to see and appreciate the loss of inches as you reshape your body.
3. Social support is crucial.
If you don’t have someone to cheer you on, it’s going to be one hundred times harder than it needs to be. If I didn’t have this support there is no way I would have finished.
This is more than just Losing Fat – this is changing the way you take care of you – the way you live….and there is NO reason why you should have to do this on your own. Sometimes its super helpful to have someone to ask…”Is this what is supposed to be happening?” or advice on how to overcome the every day obstacles.
4. Keep a DETAILED journal
And Be Honest – no sense fooling yourself.
Writing it down helps you identify your current habits so you are aware of what changes need to take place in order to get results. Guessing or committing habits to memory will only end up as another excuse.
Plus, not only will this provide you with a running record of what is working and what is not – it becomes an additional level of accountability – making you think twice about your choices – especially if you keep an journal online where others will read what you post!
5. Think Positive
Some days are harder than others; when you have a bad day, forgive yourself for the mistakes you made and move on. No one is perfect – and no one NEEDS to be in order to get results. This is more of a matter of knowing what to do when the going gets tough so you do not flounder and get off track.
Plain and simple – Consistency= Results.
You must take action each and every day and follow through. The habits and tasks needed to successfully achieve fat loss are things that ANYONE can do ~ it’s just that the successful person does them CONSISTENTLY.
7. Keep only supportive food on hand.
Restock your kitchen with foods that support fat loss and increased energy and make sure you eat enough of it. Your environment supports your habits.
8. Be teachable
Don’t ever think you know it all or know better. Be open to try a new approach …especially when it’s a strategy all the successful FYMs are doing!
9. Look for inspiration wherever possible
Be an inspiration magnet! Reach out to your support system, get encouragement when needed, give it every chance you get, look for quotes, create vision boards, make a goals list of things that really get you excited and read it often.
10. Take it day by day
This is a journey….not a destination. I hope you enjoyed these top 10 fat loss tips for busy moms!
