Since running Stayfitbuzz I have communicated with many individuals. Some were already quite successful in their fitness journey, while some were just starting out. In fact, I feel like name dropping from a random list:
- Meni Fotara
- Zorica Nalbantjan
- Meera Hirani
- Andrew Harrell
- Ale Rodriguez
- Bruna Gomez
- Gloria Herrera
- Sylwia Czauderna
- And more….
Either way, they all caught the Stayfitbuzz. Because regardless of the results or current levels of fitness, they have come along to stick it out for the journey. That’s the approach and mindset you need if you want to succeed in this fitness lifestyle.
However, nothing is perfect and the world changes daily. Does that mean that no plan can be perfect? Well, I’ll let you argue about that in the comments. But before you get there. I want to give you a 7 step fat loss formula. A system that if followed can only fail if you fail to use the system.
Let’s get into it…
- Eating less will work, but only up to a certain point (You ate A LOT less, but you didn’t magically disappear? )
- Becoming active via strength training/weight training and cardio is a vital part of the formula. But then you probably faced that dreaded 6 week sticking point where no changes happened.
#1 Stop fooling around and decide what the hell you want
I gave a brief introduction to goal setting in this post. But the first thing you’ll need to do is write down what you want to achieve manually, on paper. Not on a computer. Because there’s something magical about physically writing things down that helps you remember things and why it’s important. If so, great, because you at least have an idea of where you want to go, instead of following a tunnel to nowhere.
#2 Know your starting point
Remember Rippley from the accelerate your fat loss post?
- Weight: 200lbs (She obviously weighs more, but 200lbs for example sake
- BF%: 20%
- BF: 38lbs
- Lean body mass: 166lbs
- Wants to lose: 20-25lbs
Yes, she may have a long way to go before reaching her ultimate goal. But she at least has established her starting point… with objective measurements. Which basically means that she will be recording all of the above stats on her progress reports (I’ll create these for you at some point soon)
#3 Take some freakin’ action already
Now, the reason you found your way to Stayfitbuzz is because you wanted to find a proven model for fat loss that you could simply copy and paste. If so, great, because that’s the smart and fast approach to success. You don’t want to model what everyone else in the world does, which is to lose weight fast and gain it right back. And so, you have Stayfitbuzz (The posts and programs).
Now, it is true that varying factors (e.g genetics) will of course yield a different result for every individual that follows the programs. But that’s OK. The main point about following a proven model is that you will be able create your best physique in the quickest time possible.
Because you are unique it will mean that you will have to experiment with the ‘proven’ formula somewhat. That’s OK too. As long as you follow each process, you will be victorious.
#4 Keep on taking action
Now that you have the proven formula, you have to keep on acting on it daily and weekly each step of the way, because a goal without action is useless. Quit the talking and start doing. Again, the majority of people out there will talk. But when you look at the amount of people who actually see a goal through to the end, then you’re looking at a handful. Be one of those in that handful. Whether it’s turning a change into a habit, getting yourself into the gym at least 3 times a week or cutting junk food from the shopping list. Just keep on doing it. If you take your eye off the ball, you’ll lose.
#5 If it works, keep on doing it
I may have mentioned something in the ‘formula’ that should have worked well for you, but didn’t quite work as well… for YOU. You decided to tweak a small thing and like magic, the results blew you away. What ever that process is, just keep on doing it.
If what you do isn’t working, then go back to the formula, identify where you went wrong, repeat the proven aspect of the formula and try again or tweak. Just don’t go around in circles repeating the same mistake over and over. It can become a deadly habit, that if not cured can affect you for life.
The ability to sense whether something is working or not will take some trial and error. Just make sure you know what you are looking for when you are making judgments. Again, once you find a process that works with what you learn here on SFB and from your own reports, then stick to it. Don’t change it. If any Naysayers try to question your approach, then screw ‘em. Because you know what’s what. You’ve seen you’re journey, they haven’t.
#6 The program isn’t crap, it may not just be for you
No matter how popular a program may be, there is no program out there that caters to EVERYONE. So it’s not uncommon to hear the positive and negative views about a certain program. If a program doesn’t work for you, even our own, then try something else. Don’t be bitter and quit. In fact, quitting is the worst thing you can do, because it keeps you at ground zero… forever! You’ll always produce a result with any form of action. Some results will be great and some won’t. It’s as simple as that. Just use the not so great results as feedback for your eventual great results, which for many of you will be to strip away that final phase of fat. The only time you have to worry is when you can’t notice that something isn’t working.
#7 Be persistent
Yes, I know that you know this by now. But it’s true. Smart consistency and persistence will take you to your goal physique. Persistence, because you may have to change your approach more than once to hit your ultimate formula. Whether that’s with the timing of your meal plans, the types of foods you eat, where fat tends to build up most or whatever. Keep a smart eye on everything.
But most of all, be honest along the way. If you’ve been doing something for too long, then it’s OK to quit something, as long as you change the direction. Just don’t get into a habit of jumping onto every single program out there one after the other. That will get you nowhere.
Your initial plan may not workout, that’s OK. Heck, the original plan for Stayfitbuzz isn’t on the same course as originally planned.
If so, you can just switch, because there are countless strategies to adapt to in this industry. It’s just that the StayFitBuzz formula is a proven approach… that you’re allowed to be flexible around . Take the fundamentals and apply the 7 steps to create your own ultimate formula. And when you need an extra boost, Stayfitbuzz will always be there for you.
Your tools for progress
1. The mirror
4. How your clothes fit
5. Your friends and colleagues thoughts about your appearance
6. Opinions from strangers
7. Fat weight
8. Total bodyweight
9. Your lean body mass
10. Your body fat percentage
11. Your skinfold thickness
The best from the bunch are the opinions from ‘fitness friends’ and strangers. This is because your fitness friends probably only see you every 7-10 days if that, so they’ll will be one of the first to notice a real change, even if you haven’t. And strangers will perceive what they see within seconds of acknowledging you. And if it’s a positive reaction, you’ll know. Not that you care what anyone else thinks . You can agree to disagree. Either way, these will be your tools for progress. Stay tuned for part 2.
