Top 5 reasons why you're not getting results (yet)!

You've been working really hard and right now you're feeling frustrated that you're not seeing the results you were hoping to see at this point.

Sometimes you might find there are simple things you can change and all of the sudden shifts happen but let me tell you that often self-sabotage is the prime reason you’re stuck and frustrated.


Yes I know it’s hard to here but you might be self-sabotaging your results by justifying certain behaviours or avoiding the uncomfortable bits that need to be addresses and changed.


So what are the top 5 reasons you’re not getting results?


‘Simplistics’ first!


  • Training/ Sleep/ Stress

I know you deep down know this BUT it’s often overlooked and forgotten about. So please answer the following 3 questions:

  1. Are you training enough? (Are you putting enough effort into your training?)
  2. Are you sleeping enough (7-8h) and how is your quality of sleep?
  3. How stressed are you and if you are stressed how are you managing it?


  • Are you eating enough and what’s your relationship with food like?

One of THE most common reasons women are not seeing results is because of their mindset “train more, eat less”. Although this works temporarily, it never works in the long run.

You MUST dedicate time towards educating yourself about nutrition, address emotional eating, change your mindset if necessary and work on creating a positive relationship with food.

This takes time but it’s worth the effort.


  • Alcohol

We just spoke about not eating enough, right?

Although it’s important that you eat enough nutritious food, make sure that you’re not on the other end of the spectrum and that is consuming a large amount of empty calories through alcohol.

Two things: it won’t help your body recover or change shape (highly inflammatory) and it easily tips your calories over if you’re drinking a lot frequently.



  • Self- sabotage

Self- sabotage most of the time happens subconsciously. It pretty much means that certain habits, behaviours and thought patterns are running on autopilot and they are stopping you from getting where you potentially can be and want to be.

If you want to break though unhelpful eating patterns and negative self-talk, shoot me a message and I’m happy to have a chat with you.




  • Consistency

Consistency is key. If you’re someone who jumps on and off the train all the time, it’s likely for you to never reach the destination.

Depending on your current health status, training age and state of metabolism it can take anywhere between 6-24 months for you to get the results you’re after.

Embrace the journey and trust the process instead of stopping.

Build a routine that works for you in the long run so the magic can take place.
