Are you a fit person with lean habits?
One of the major differences I see between chronically fit people and those who aren’t is that fit people have developed something I call “lean habits.”
Their habits did not not develop over night. For instance, a fit person has typically developed enough discipline over time to make the choices that best serve them and their goals regularly, which is what allows them to stay fit.
For example, a person with lean habits can choose water over soda with lunch. They can drive by fast food restaurants and not be tempted to pull over. They can say no to dessert most of the time without a second thought. Fit people can bring their workout clothes with them so that they can hit the gym after work.
Are lean habits easy to develop? Well, honestly, no. But they absolutely can be developed with consistent commitment over time.
Perhaps you work on developing your lean habits first with creating rules and parameters to slowly change your current habits.
Firstly, limit soda to 1x/day if you normally drink 3
Secondly, eat out only 2x/week instead of 4 times
Thirdly, go to the gym 2x/week consistently rather than not at all
Fourthly, brush your teeth if your are tempted to eat late at night.
Fifthly, go to bed 15 minutes earlier 3x/week to improve your sleeping habits.
There are no hard and fast rules around how to develop lean habits, it’s simply about doing what works for you. However, you have to start some where, even if that’s just one habit each month.
