Expectations determine your path: choose them wisely

One of the major reasons some of us don't achieve what we hope to is that we are expecting something to happen that is in direct contrast to our efforts.For example, if you want to lose weight, body fat, or a bad relationship, how do you make that happen? Now I know this might sound like a no-brainer but consider how some of us go about this.

When considering the achievement of weight loss; the usual images come to mind: sweating in a gym somewhere or running up and down a single flight of stairs til near exhaustion. Some of us may find such images useful in theory but not so much in reality. What is the expectation for weight loss if activities that can make the loss real are undesirable? The expectation, whether verbalized or not; is failure! We have succeeded in self-sabotage. Shooting ourselves down is rarely a conscious thought; we don't necessarily start out expecting failure. However, if we fail to align our expectations with our efforts; failure is the only result.

One resource I am currently using to help me achieve my weight loss and fat loss goals is found in the teachings of a natural body-builder: Tom Venuto. I was fortunate enough to come across this knowledgeable gentleman while looking for nutrition information on the net.  I understand that nutrition is key to losing body fat and weight; I just wasn't sure of the best way to achieve it.

The idea of burning body fat and feeding my muscles was a unique one. Tom is renown for his awesome physique; a physique achieved without the use of the usual suspects (steriods) and other performance enhancing agents. Click on the Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle image and check him out.
