Rant Alert!

I don't get why people wait until a month before their beach trip, or whatever event it is, to get "in shape". They go on some strict diet and do a ton of cardio every day, only to make minimal change in how their body looks-because a month is just not enough time.

I have had clients do this. They 've been training with me for a while, but I know that they're not being consistent with their eating, or doing enough outside of our training, even when I am always on them about it.

Then all of a sudden, they have a vacation coming up, and NOW they want to get focused and eat really good. The problem is....their trip is just a few weeks away! They tell me that they're going to eat really good and that they want to work out extra hard. And I'm just like, "What?? You should have been doing that this whole time!!"

If they had had that same drive and determination a year ago, 6 months ago, even 3 months ago, and been consistent, they would probably have gotten awesome results by now and wouldn't have to be rushing to get in "bikini shape."

The thing is, unless you are already pretty lean to start with, a few weeks of eating really good is not going to be enough to see any drastic change in your appearance. You just can't transform your body in a few weeks, no matter how healthy you eat or how much exercise you do.

And anyways-why wait until you have a beach trip coming up to get a beach body? Wouldn't it be nice to be in bikini shape all year round??

I'm willing to bet that Erin is always beach ready!
