"It never gets easier, you just get better."
I love the candid, honest check-ins from my clients about being successful with their nutrition while out of routine or on vacation, avoiding fast foods for the longest stretch they've ever gone, or an increased understanding regarding what foods work for them and what they should be avoiding in order to achieve their goals.
"It's getting so easy!" is the common closer to these check-ins.
But guess what - it's not getting any easier - you are still having to prep, plan, track and make decisions about the food you consume- the problems are the same ones that arose when you first began this program & wanted to make a change to your eating style to hit your personal goals. What's changed is that you're better equipped with a solution - you've gotten better.
Imagine where you would be today if you'd given up after a week, or a month, or fell off track after a vacation…. just because it wasn't "easy" in that moment. You've stuck it through, grown immensely and are reaping the rewards physically, mentally and "nutritionally" because of it!
If you're thinking of getting started, close your eyes and imagine yourself in 1 month, 3 months and 12 months after working hard at going after your goal. Every change begins with the decision to start, and the commitment to stick through it. It never will get easier, but you have the power to make yourself better!

P.S. I hear a lot of peole who are interested in beginning to 'count their macros', but are 'scared' because they don't like the picture check in component of it. If you are or you know someone who has this as their barrier, please let them know I am happy to speak with them and come up with a solution.
