Accountability Hack: Flip the Script

Accountability Hack: Flip the Script

A great trick I’ve learned over the year is when I’m feeling “burned out” or starting to lack motivation with FITness and/or Nutrition is to…

“Flip the Script”

Most of us know what it takes to be successful with our Health and FITness. The problem is…we are human.

And so much of our success with our Health and FITness rides on what is going on with our lives, family, friends, work, and the normal everyday stresses that life will present you with. Motivation is all about the mental and emotional.

So when the workouts are becoming stale…
And when the PR’s aren’t happening…
When it’s starting to get harder and harder to get yourself to the gym…

“Flip the Script”

Pretend you are telling your friend (who has the same goals and motivations as you) to do what they should do to snap YOU out of it.

Why?

Because we always hold others more accountable then ourselves. Think about it.

When was the last time you planned on going to the gym and you didn’t?

Or when were you supposed to eat that healthy home cooked meal and opted to not cook and drive yourself to the nearest fast food?

Ahhh I can go to the gym tomorrow…or I will start my diet ‘Monday’.

But when one of your friends asks you for advice about working out or eating right you seem to always give them the advice of exactly what YOU need to do…

It’s easier to let ourselves off the hook and much easier to NOT let others off the hook.

Are you being a baby??? Or is something more serious happening?
