Stop Outsourcing Your Health and Fitness Tips
We believe and say it on our website - "We have outsourced our lifestyle for way too long! It's time for a lifestyle transformation from the inside out. We help women over 50 get fit and healthy one step at a time by improving their mindset, daily practices and self-discipline."
These are the practices that we live by and that we teach our clients to live by.
We write about ideas, tips to help make the lifestyle transformation one step at a time. We believe that change in our lives can be accomplished one practice at a time. Today we are sharing our ideas on the topic of helping you to Stop Outsourcing Your Health & Fitness Each Day With These 6 Simple Easy Tips.
To make long lasting change requires a commitment to a disciplined and focused intention over time to move toward what you want rather than the focus on what you say you want. For example: If you say your really want to live a healthier life then you will have to set out to do a number of practices over time, like eating real organic life-affirming foods at meals cooked in your own kitchen everyday, set out a disciplined exercise/fitness practice 6-7 days a week and begin the practice of improving your sleep consistently each night.
At this point stick with me because all of these intentional, disciplined and focused changes will be done over a period of time where you start where you are right now and improve by tiny steps each day. You’ve heard the saying – “Inch by inch it’s a cinch, yard by yard it is hard” right?
We have written about taking tiny steps here https://www.wendybottrell.com/blog/how-to-make-big-changes-by-tiny-steps and to help you create YOUR powerful WHY we have a detailed blog post to help you here https://www.wendybottrell.com/blog/implement-the-5-whys-method-to-energize-your-best-life
We think about outsourcing as a way to not take responsibility for your health and fitness. Either by the way of excuses or giving your power to someone other than yourself. It is time to take complete responsibility for where you are now and where you want to be in a day, week, month, year or 5 years from now.
Outsourcing certain aspects of our health and fitness lives can have several downsides.
Some of these include:
Lack of personalization: When we outsource our health and fitness, we may not be getting a program that is tailored to our specific needs and goals. This can make it difficult to achieve the results we want.
Limited understanding: When we rely on others to guide our health and fitness journey, we may not gain a deep understanding of the principles and practices involved. This can make it difficult to sustain healthy practices or continue making progress in the long term. Meaning we quit on ourselves because we most likely haven’t created a strong enough WHY.

Dependence: It can be so beneficial to hire a coach and/or trainer to help you move in the direction you say you want to move in. However, relying too much on others to guide our health and fitness can lead to a lack of autonomy and self-sufficiency in our own health and fitness journey. Working with someone that is going to help you do for yourself is an important aspect to help you not outsource your transformation to someone other than you.
Cost: Outsourcing health and fitness services can be expensive and may not be a feasible option for everyone.
Limited access: Not everyone has access to the same health and fitness resources, thus outsourcing might not be a viable option for everyone.
Limited access to expertise: While some professionals may have a great deal of expertise, they may not have the same level of expertise in all areas, and thus may not be able to provide the best advice or guidance for certain health or fitness concerns.
It's important to note that outsourcing certain aspects of our health and fitness can be beneficial in certain situations, such as when seeking specialized guidance or treatment for a specific condition, but it's important to use it in balance with a self-directed approach.
Begin by finding your WHY and take action toward your goal with tiny steps in a disciplined and focused manner and everything is possible. Take control of what you say you want and begin where you are starting today!
