YOU THINK YOU NEED A WIZARD WITH SOME MAGIC,
BUT YOU HAVE HAD THE SOLUTION ALL ALONG
For years, trainers, nutritionists, and people with health goals have been debating the ratio of what the fitness commitment must be in perspective to the dietary commitments in order to achieve your outcome. You will often hear some swear by the 80/20 rule, where as it is 80% diet and 20% exercise. Some will argue more or less in either direction. The latest discovery here by an account of trial and error within PLYOGA Fitness has opened up the complete truth about a 3rd factor that nearly no one addresses in this algorithm.
What was this X-Factor?
YOUR MENTAL GAME. HAVE YOU DECIDED YOU ARE WORTH IT?
Based on this new discovery, PLYOGA will be the first to make a ground-breaking announcement in the world of fitness. Achieving what you have set out for physically, either at random or for a New Year’s Resolution, requires a new equation that is:
90% mental commitment, 8% dietary, and 2% exercise
You think this is wrong, let me tell you why you are from another planet.
- By the middle of January, (out of 100% of people) the majority of people (over 50%) with a New Year’s Resolution have given up.
- By the end of the year, 90% of people (9 out of every 10) have let their New Year’s Resolution extinguish. 1 out of 10 succeed.
WHY DID THEY QUIT? THEY DID NOT MENTALLY RENDER THEMSELVES WORTH IT.
There are all kinds of explanations, excuses, and absolute perfect reasons why each of these people quit “in their minds”. Let me explain our new equation.
Since the question is only asked when someone needs answer, then since the fail rate is 9 out of 10, it is only fair that 90% would be rendered mental in order to succeed. (It’s fair to say the journey is 100% mental, but that would mean nothing else needs to change). It’s like an alcoholic or a drug addict who will not recover until they want to. They have to want it. You spend 2 hours per day both thinking about what you are going to eat and then eating it. You may multi-task during these times, but the ratio is accurate. Guess what 8% of a day is…. Just about 2 hours. If you don’t take advantage of that 8% wisely, you will not achieve that 100% mark that you rendered important to you. I work out about ½ hour per day, or 2% of a day, and I can physically keep up with nearly everyone reading this in pull ups, push-ups, interval training, or extracurricular athletic activities.
So you have the new eating lifestyle and you have the new fitness regimen that you need to secure that last 10%. How can you remain committed to holding them as a priority mentally?
Make your inspirations and your original reasons unable to be ignored. Put the picture of your sister who died of heart disease in your car. Keep that memory of your brother-in-law running and playing with your kids vivid in your mind as you set out to be able to do the same thing in the future. Sit down and have that conversation with yourself about how exercise is now going to replace that crutch that food has become after quitting smoking. As you push your elderly mom who is in a wheelchair because her knees are not strong enough after carrying around those extra 150 pounds her whole life, understand that you deserve better for yourself. Once you can establish that inevitable motivator, the real journey begins 1 step at a time.
Stop this 1 food for now, try this 1 new exercise, and then build incrementally and fluently along your personal and lifelong journey toward a better you. Even the most fit, healthy, rich, and grounded people try to get better every day. Just because you are not at your goal, does not make you a subordinate person either, so don’t let your journey discourage you. Picture it like you are waiting on line to buy something. The person who is at the register is not any better than you, they have just been there longer.
