What sets apart those who reach their goals from the ones who just wish for them?

Anyone can write a goal on a piece of paper or post a picture on the fridge of their favorite fitness model. Writing and dreaming are easy.
Changing your behavior is not.

I’ve found that a client that has to fit into a wedding dress & be the center of attention, in front of all her family and friends… she, will get to that goal… OR, the woman who’s going on a summer vacation with her size 4 sister in law, and wants to wear a bikini… so will she.


For them, the consequences of NOT reaching the goal is motivation enough. Not fitting in the dress and not looking the way she always dreamed of is not acceptable; having to hear another condescending word from the skinny sister-in-law? She’s not going to put up with it.
Deadlines are important. They create an instant time frame within which you MUST reach that goal. However, you can have a deadline, but have no drive.

Look at your own behavior. Are you doing the things you need to do to reach your goal? What can you do to achieve your goals?

So now on to the New Years resolutioners… yes, I’m picking on you now….

It’s now March. Are you still contemplating if you should or could achieve those goals, ask yourself how you can move away from I SHOULD lose 10 lbs to… I COULD lose 10 lbs.

COULD you track your diet for a few days and see exactly how much you’re eating?
COULD you sign up for a race, or take some classes at BODY N BALANCE?
COULD you change your behavior in even little ways…. to work towards what you want?
COULD you join BODY N BALANCE , and let us help you stay on track and accountable?

OF COURSE YOU CAN…and you will…if you want it bad enough!  313-792-8181
