I don’t usually comment on celebrity fitness journeys because their lives are often different from regular folks like you and me. They often have a team of people around to assist them with achieving their goals, whether it be career or fitness. However, I’m making a departure here to make a point using a celebrity as an example about consistency.
Enter Rebel Wilson
Australian actor Rebel Wilson was known as the funny chubby girl since breaking into the Hollywood scene in 2011. However, in 2020, she decided to work on her health. Wilson surrounded herself with people who could help her. She educated herself about healthy eating and exercise. She set herself on the path to earning her a 60lb weight loss. Her current schedule includes 7-days of physical activity, whether it be high-intensity interval training or classic resistance training, or mobility and active recovery.
It’s no miracle that she lost 60lbs in 2020 and continued to lose weight in 2021. Whenever she’s interviewed, she asserts that being the best and healthiest version of herself is her focus, not the weight loss. She has transformed in almost two years into an athlete who moves and eats and lives to be strong, fit, and healthy.
How did she do it? Consistency.
Your Body On Consistency
The human body is designed to respond to exercise and proper nutrition at a genetic level. These genetic responses begin seconds into an exercise session and create a demand on the body for the correct ratios of proteins and carbohydrates. If we exercise and feed ourselves appropriately, our genes code new muscle and mitochondrial proteins to improve our body composition and endurance over minutes, hours, days, and weeks. These changes can add up to create better versions of ourselves as time goes on. Provided we stay the course and consistently choose the movement and nutrition that benefits us.
What Will Your Story Be?
Rebel Wilson’s story is not unique. Millions of people have transformed their health and lives by becoming consistent with the right choices for diet and exercise.
