Kettlebell Workout Fat Loss Mistake #9 – E _____ D ______

Kettlebell Workout Fat Loss Mistake #9 – E _____ D ______ 

In my last video on this subject, I discussed helping our daughter acquire new skills to help her get to the next level in her gymnastics training. And I said there were 3 things that applied to you losing body fat.

The first was IMPATIENCE.

We covered that fully in that video.

Today, we’re covering the second: 

E-D – EMBRACING DISCOMFORT

See, in order to lose body fat, you have to do things differently.

You have to get out of your Comfort Zone.

And you have to learn new skills – like Meal Preparation.

Or getting more out of breath than you’re used to while training.

Being uncomfortable is part of the Process of Transition.

It’s the period of time where you’re learning new skills, applying them, and making mistakes, in order to achieve the goals you want to achieve (lose 20 pounds for example) and become the person you want to be (lean, strong, healthy, capable).

But most people won’t do this.

They give up too soon.

Many times because it’s “too haaaaarrrrddddd.”

And they just don’t realize this:

When you’re doing new things, you’re going to be uncomfortable.

It’s going to feel hard.

And that’s all part of the process.

Just keep going – pressing through – and don’t stop.

What feels hard and awkward today will be automatic in another 62 days.

(It takes 63 days to build a habit, according to cognitive neuroscientist, Dr. Caroline Leaf.)

63 days from “uncomfortable to automatic.”

That’s only 9 weeks.

Out of 52 – or one year.

Pretty good trade off if you ask me.

Speaking of 9 weeks…

How much fat could you strip off between here and July 4th – Midsummer here in the US of A?

Well that all depends on:

1- How you’re eating, and

2- What kettlebell program you’re doing.

So, EMBRACE DISCOMFORT (or, if you prefer the US Marine Corps’ version, “Embrace the Suck!”).

You got this.

I’ll leave some information for multiple 9-plus week programs you can use to strip off body fat and overcome discomfort in the process:
