You Don’t Get Fat Accidentally

Fellow Melbournian and blogger/fitness guru Craig Harper recently made a comment which really caught my eye. It was one of several useful points in a blog post of his and was simple this –

“You don’t get fat accidentally”

And I guess, when it comes down to it, that this is true. At the end of the day, someone has to take responsibility for the state of your health and wellness, and ultimately that someone has to be you. Sure, your Mum might have stuffed cookies and ice-cream down your throat when you were young, and maybe you really did have zero positive influence in the health arena while growing up. Maybe bad genetics play a part, or perhaps you just spent years not even being aware that there was an alternative way of eating, a way that didn’t result in a slow but steady rise of the scales. And it could be that you’ve been unfortunate enough to suffer some kind of physical, emotional or otherwise impairing ailment that really has restricted your ability to eat well and exercise.

But the long and short of it is that, like it or not – and whether or not you’re fully to blame – the body that you’re walking around in is the direct result of the foods you’ve put into it, the thoughts and subsequent actions you’ve allowed to take place, and the amount of movement that you’ve made room for in your busy life. And you might think that poor health or a greater waist girth than you’d like is something that just snuck up on you, but the truth is that you kinda knew things were going wrong a while ago, didn’t you? It’s just that, for whatever reason, you didn’t feel ready to face facts. To square your shoulders and admit to yourself that whatever you’d been doing was clearly not working out for you. And that more of the same would absolutely, most certainly, in fact irrevocably lead to more of the same.

And hey. Who am I to talk? I spent at least 3 or 4 years in my early days as a Personal Trainer a good 6-10 kg overweight, pretending that it wasn’t an issue, trying to convince myself I was getting away with not practicing what I preached, going out to dinner nearly every night and then finally, eventually, having to look myself in the mirror and admit that I wasn’t happy with what I saw. And that despite the fact that I’d been working 80 hour weeks (and therefore had the ‘excuse’ of having no time for exercise or food preparation) and despite being constantly ‘dragged’ out for less-than-healthy meals by my then partner, the image I was looking at was a direct outcome of my behaviors. I was the one who had chosen to let things slip, and I was the one who was paying the price. So it stood to reason that I was the one who had to do something about it.

Your situation may be more complex than that. I was lucky enough to figure all this out at an age where hard work and good eating alone was enough to (slowly) turn things around. And I didn’t have any underlying hormonal issues holding me back, at least nothing that a few week’s of proper sleep couldn’t sort out. Nor did I have kids or any other sort of serious responsibilities to worry about. You might have so much going on in your body let alone the rest of your life that you feel as though – accident or not – your current physical state is a battle your gradually losing and that you really don’t know if you can do anything about it.

But the good news is that just as you don’t lose control by accident, you don’t get it back by accident. Why is that good news? Well sure, it would be wonderful if the magic fairy came by and waved her wand and you were suddenly looking at the you you’ve always longed to be, but we both know that ain’t gonna happen. And really, who wants to live in a world where success depends on chance?

You’re lucky enough to live in a world where you do have the power. You can decide right now who you want to be 100 days from now. You can decide right now what you’re going to put in your mouth from here on out. And whether or not you’re going to continue to kid yourself, to justify the treats, the ‘surely-this-little-bit-won’t-hurts’, the missed workout opportunities, the constant waiting for the right time to really be tough on yourself and find out just what you’re capable of. And what are you waiting for? You wouldn’t be scared at all, would you? Afraid of what might happen if you do man up? Square your shoulders, look yourself straight in the eye, and admit that you really haven’t been giving things a proper shot? Because when all is said and done, if somebody has to take responsibility for the state you’re in (and they do), then isn’t it best that that person is you? Assuming of course, that you have your own best interests at heart.

But if you’re okay with always wondering, or if you truly don’t mind the added bulge, then that’s fine. Don’t face the fear. Don’t finally take the plunge, truly commit to eating, thinking and training right day in and day out. The choice is yours, after all. There are no accidents in the weight loss game.

This course will include all the practical things I do to continually grow real wealth (boy oh boy was that a minefield for me to wade through, and find soul alignment with, at first!),

my personal daily and weekly money routines and practices,

also what I get my team to do / the behind the scenes of how we create and also manage cashflow in my biz,

the quantum side of it, the energetics of the thing,

everything you ACTUALLY need to know about clearing shit, and how to know when there IS action to take on that, what it is, how to take it,

how to know when it IS time to align to your next money goal, what that goal is, how I myself would know (and then what to do about it),

how I do my money energy work, my own feelings and relationship with money, and how I created that

as well as a literal ‘what to do and how to do it’ process to align YOU to your next money goal, right there and then together in that course. Yep, you will actually be implementing and shifting shit with me there right by your side kicking your hot ass as needed (gettin’ you soul aligned baby!)

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

    I needed this. Thank you!

    For me, I have to be mindful everyday what I do, how I eat, and how much activity I do. NOT being mindful had me anywhere between 40 and 50 lbs overweight as a young woman. Some people think that I “worry too much”, but not thinking about it and making a consistent effort didn’t work for me. Unfortunately, genetics are not in my favor!

  3. Nate says:

    Very well said. My articulation of this very subject isn’t quite as elegant as yours (I just tend to get angry when people repeatedly act like this.) Its funny how people draw a line in the sand, so-to-speak, over and over again until they feel like they have accomplished a lot, when they really have done next to nothing.

    Just what I needed to hear kat. Thanx. May the mountain climb become a little hill!

    This is one of the things I think about and that angers me most, especially when I’m at the grocery store, and I could write forever on it. I think there are two subcategories of people who are in the larger category of Accidentally Fat: those who are ignorant and those who don’t care. The latter is a huge category here in the U.S., but that’s another topic. I think there are many good people out there who just don’t know what it takes to be physically fit. All they need is some guidance and discipline to start their path to fitness. The people who don’t care are the people who grow up in super-sized families and just think that they’re “a larger person”, not too dissimilar from having blue eyes or brown hair. They think that being huge is perfectly normal (again, speaking of the U.S.) and therefore are completely apathetic to their physical situation. I wish both categories of these people would take responsibility for themselves and their fitness.
