I read an article a few months ago called "Strength Doesn't Care". It was a GREAT article for me because the jest of the article was that strength doesn't care what your excuse may be, you either did the work and got stronger or you didn't and you didn't, it's as simple as that. The only person you have to be mad at is yourself.This got me to thinking however about how this relates directly to you. You want to lose body fat. Great, join the club, I hear they're getting jackets. But much like strength, FAT doesn't care either. Let me explain...
You see when it comes to fat loss there are things that need to happen before you can lose any body fat. These things range from eating the right amount of calories, to the right ratios of protein fats and carbs, to how many calories you are burning in a day. For the sake of this article, I will refer to all of the above as WORK. That is all it really is...work that has to be done.
Now, when you get to the end of a week and step on that scale, no matter what it says, that is what your WORK earned you for the week.Did you get busy and miss a day at the gym? Fat doesn't care
Did you have a BBQ on Saturday and eat a little too much? Fat doesn't care.
Did you stay up late watching the House Wives of BFE reunion? Fat doesn't care (and neither should you)
No matter what, at the end of the week, you either did the WORK, and lost some body fat, or you didn't, and you didn't. That's it.
There is no begging after the fact, there is no reasoning about how much you cheated or how you did most of the work. FAT DOESN'T CARE!
You may have an awesome excuse, like a sick kid, or you yourself were sick as a dog. That is a valid excuse, but guess what, fat still doesn't care. Fat gives no partial credit for effort, or intentions, or if you tried really hard. You do the WORK or you don't.So if you are unhappy with your progress you are making, chances are, you are not doing the necessary WORK to get the results you want.
