Now, onto the topic I want to discuss, "What Can You Control?". This actually derived from a conversation I had with Michael this morning after I finished my workout. I had mentioned to him this week I wanted to lose four pounds, but he wanted to also discuss a goal to meet by the end of August. He gave me his thoughts, and we came to an agreement on a good end of month goal. But, because he knows me well and I tend to over-think sometimes, he also talked about the importance of not stressing.
I'm not sure about other clients, but I really try to take everything my trainers say to heart, because they truly are the professionals. They wouldn't make suggestions or comments that would hinder my health and fitness goals. And today during our talk, he said some things that I've heard before, but for some reason I really pondered on them throughout the day. He told me to just show up for my sessions, watch my diet, and do my cardio and HIIT sessions, because those are the things I can control. But, he also mentioned things I can't control, and I can't let those things discourage me from reaching my goals. It basically comes down to this quote "Focus on what you can control.", then I think everything else will fall into place!
