I wrote to a client this morning coaching her and letting her know that it will take time to see results. Here’s what I wrote…
“You are on the right path.
Know that I've been working out since I was about 13 years old. I can say that I've trained at least 3 days, up to 7 days a week during this time.
I just turned 53 last week...so that's 40 years of training.
I've learned to "judge" myself on the effort and consistency of work that I put in. My effort may vary from day to day, but for the most part, I give it 100%.
Results will come over time, but to set a specific goal of pounds lost, or inches lost, is often a setup for failure.
Be committed to yourself. Dig in, and do the work. You'll get stronger, and your body will thank you. It will appreciate that you are training it, and improving it.
P.S. I tried to find a pic from 40 years ago, but only came across a few from 45 plus years, thought you’d get a laugh.”
