Intensity vs. Consistency: Which is better for effective weight loss?
Remember the childhood story of the tortoise and the hare? In a competitive race, the hare was so far ahead of his opponent that he carelessly took a break before getting to the finish line. While the hare rested, the turtle kept going at a slow and steady pace and ended up winning the race to the hare’s surprise!
The moral of the story has tremendous value for your weight loss goals today and that is consistency wins every time.
Motivation gets you started, but eventually it tapers off. Intensity can take you far, but it can only last for so long. When you consistently maintain good habits, you will achieve the results you want to see.
Intensity vs. Consistency: What does it mean to be consistent?
Consistency looks like:
Showing up regularly no matter how you feel.
Being open to change and constructive feedback.
Not letting your emotions drive your actions, but letting results drive your actions.
Giving your best, and on the days when you can’t, being determined to give your best perhaps later on that day.
What it doesn’t look like is completely giving up on days when you’re just not feeling it. You’ll never get the results you want to see if you let your emotions drive your actions, so it’s important to remain consistent even when you feel like wavering!
Intensity vs. Consistency: Consistency is the KEY to getting the weight loss results you want.
