5 Ways to Overcome Barriers to Your Best Body

There are many complex reasons that make fat loss and healthy changes a challenge… reasons that go deeper than simply calories-in versus calories-out.

I’m talking about the life issues that get in the way of your success.

Here are 5 things that block fitness results along with the solutions to unlock your best body.

1. You are crazy busy.

Let’s face it, you work too much, commit yourself to too much and don’t even get enough sleep most of the time. The fast-paced way we live leaves us exhausted, stressed and hungry for comfort food. We even begin to feel too busy to take care of your health.

It’s time to reprioritize. Let go of your perfectionist standards and remove a few commitments from your schedule so that you are able to cook healthy meals, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. Remind yourself that taking care of your health is not a luxury—it’s a necessity.

2. You don’t want to wait for the good stuff.

Just as you wish to avoid pain, you are also an expert in seeking out pleasure—namely food. This served the cavemen well, but these days it ends up as extra pounds and insecurity.

There’s good news: extra calories are not your only option to stimulate the pleasure center of your brain. Find an activity or two that make you smile and indulge in those regularly.

  • A walk outside
  • A good book
  • A night out to the movies or theater
  • A spa day

You can also retrain your brain to crave the pleasure of exercise-induced endorphins. Talk about weight gain kryptonite!

3. You don’t want to be bothered.

It’s in our DNA to avoid pain and seek out pleasure. Unfortunately, this works against us when trying to get fit. In our mind, it’s painful (or at least uncomfortable) to deny the tasty food we crave and to exert ourselves with exercise.

There’s a simple way to work around this obstacle: set your objective as an empowering question (for example: “How can I have fun with my fitness plan and feel fantastic every second of the day?”) and do the same with all your excuses keeping you from that objective (for example: “How can I find the time and energy to exercise?”)

Keep repeating these to yourself and be amazed at how your mindset shifts dramatically.

4. You don’t deserve it.

I don’t agree with it, but we often act like we don’t deserve to live the good life in the body of our dreams. Take a moment to think back on all the times you have self-sabotaged your weight loss efforts. If you don’t believe deep down that you are worthy, then you’ll never give yourself a chance at a fit body.

I believe that you deserve to have a healthy body—and I urge you to dig deep down to uncover why you don’t. Once you conquer your feelings of unworthiness, getting on an exercise and healthy eating plan will be easy.

Take the time to take care of yourself. You DO deserve it.

5. You are afraid.

You’re afraid to start because you just might fail, and wouldn’t that be embarrassing? You’re also afraid to start because you just might succeed, and change makes us uncomfortable – even if it’s change in the right direction.

When you decide to get fit you will need to go through a bunch of changes:

  • New diet
  • New exercise routine
  • New friends at the gym
  • New clothes
  • New self-image

First off, remember you don’t have to change these all at once! Focus on all of the ways that shaping up will make your life better. Envision that better life everyday so that it goes from being new and scary to familiar and comfortable.
