Make sure your expectations are realistic, or you’re setting yourself up to fail.
-0.5lb a week is realistic if you’re trying to lose weight.
-0.5cm from your waist is realistic if you’re trying to lose weight.
Weeks where you gain weight is realistic when you’re trying to lose weight.
Some weeks you’ll feel like crap, that’s normal.
Taking months to add a little bit more weight to the bar, that’s normal. Maybe you’ll bench press/squat the same weight for the next 3 years, 100% normal.
Showing up to train is one million times more important.
Days, even weeks where you can’t be arsed to exercise or eat well, everyone has them.
Know that this will happen. Accept it. Get your brain in gear to take on board what we encourage you to do. We’ve studied and practiced this for years. If you do it, I promise you it’ll work, but just know and understand that it might take longer than you want it to.
