Ever done the same thing over and over again and wondered why you didn't get a different result from last time? Yeah, me too. Only this time, I've consistently done the same thing over and over for a whole month. Repetitive, boring, over and over and I'm getting results. I've discovered a pattern with me. I get bored doing the same thing over and over. I want change. I want the excitement of something different. I turned 50 this year and decided I would arrive fit and healthy for my 50th birthday. I hired a personal trainer and got strong. I have a healthy physical regime of spin classes, pilates and weights 6 days a week. Nailed it! The consistency of showing up every morning at the gym for 30-60 minutes a day was reaping results. I didn't realise it was working until I discovered my weights were increasing, the dial on the spin bike was up over 50 and I was consistently holding a plank for over 2 minutes when I could not even manage 30 seconds. I'm stoked. Now I've always worked out at the gym, participated in fun runs, commando training programs. I've always been active. And I've always eaten too much. I've consistently been 5-8 kilos overweight. I eat well. I'm a vegetarian, currently eating fish for the past 3 months. I just eat more than I need. I got educated on how to be a healthy vegetarian at Raw Satya in Windsor in Melbourne with Rosemarie Walmsley. Best thing ever. My blood tests each year are awesome. My GP can't believe how good my results are, year after year. So I came to the decision that the layer of fat covering my strong muscular body had to go. I did some research and commenced a 30 day nutritional cleanse. I took every item of clothing out of my wardrobe that was too small and put it on display. My bedroom had stuff everywhere! I consistently followed the program, did my bit of exercise, increased my water intake and hey presto ..... 4 kilos lighter! My personal trainer commented on the muscle definition she can now see in my back. I have a heap of clothing that is now too big and needs altering. Everything that was too small, now fits. Well, if I can do that in 30 days, what might be possible in another 30 days? What I've learned is that consistency works. I decided I'm more committed to my health and wellbeing, than I am to a glass of red wine or a packet of chocolate bullets (both treats I really, really love!). So, today marks the commencement of another 30 day nutritional cleanse. I'm committed to having the physical body that I really want - strong, fit and lean. I'll focus on what I want and consistently do what it is I need to do, one day at a time. No more, no less. I'm not bored with consistency. I'm bloody excited by it! Where could you use consistency to make an impact in your life?
