This is from Alwyn Cosgrove, a great coach, author and gym owner:

An entire half of 2019 has already passed- we are now only six months away from 2020. 184 days to go.

Are you on track with those New Years Resolutions (remember those)? Are you on track with your goals?

If you wanted to lose 20 lbs this year – are you down 10 lbs already?

If your goal was to do 250 workouts – have you completed 125?

It’s amazing how time passes so quickly. If you need a “do-over” then I’m going to give you one.

You can REDO your New Years Resolutions right now and get started all over again.

That’s right – I’m letting you off the hook – but don’t waste a single second.

If your goal is fat loss, start today.

If your goal is muscle building, start today. If your goal is to train for an obstacle course race – start today. If your goal is (insert anything here) – start TODAY!

50% of this year is gone forever. Will you make changes TODAY or will another 25% pass….. another 50%?

I meet a lot of people in my job, and get a lot of questions via email. I’ll talk to guys who track every single macronutrient that passes their lips, and have tried just about every program out there. When I ask them how things are going — they’ll tell me that it’s great, or that the program is working well.

However, very few people actually measure and take stock of their efforts. If you are following a plan to lose fat – are you actually losing fat? And I mean at a rate that is acceptable for your efforts? Or are you blindly following a plan that doesn’t work, and essentially ignoring that?

I know where my progress towards my goals stand because I measure it.

If you remember “SMART” goal setting — one of the keys is ‘M’ – Measurable. Measure your results.

As we enter the final half of 2019, it’s time to take stock of your efforts. Has your current return been worth the investment?

Again — 50 % of this year is gone forever. Will you make changes TODAY or will another three months pass, then before you know it — it’s 2020…..Don’t waste a single second. Start TODAY.

Where will you be at New Years Eve – Dec 31st? That’s 26 weeks away. Will you be 26 weeks leaner – down 26, or even 52lbs of fat? The time will pass anyway….
