I like to call, November and December SURVIVAL MODE when it comes to nutrition and fitness. This is the time of year when most people give up on their exercise goals or why they don’t have the money to eat healthily. I am going to call Bullpoop-ocky right there. I KNOW for a fact that if you have a strong desire and motivation to DO ANYTHING then you will find a way. If you are not highly motivated then you will FIND EXCUSES instead! I hear it all the time. When I was full time in the fitness industry and helping people with their goals I would hear every excuse under the sun, I see people lose motivation and give up, but I also see people that succeed.
The characteristics of success when it comes to our health goals are this: 1. A strong driving force or “WHY” to change their nutrition and fitness. You can’t just sorta kinda want to change, you have to REALLY WANT TO CHANGE! After the novelty of the new wears off, what is going to keep you going? It’s an internal motivation to change more than you want to stay the same! 2. Committed. People that succeed are committed. They are willing to do whatever it takes to be successful and they are not QUITTERS. They are committed to starting and finishing exactly as it is laid out and they will evaluate and tweak their program as they go. But, once they go in, they go ALL in!
3. FAITH. People who succeed have faith! They believe that without a shadow of a doubt that somehow, someway, they will be successful at making a change. It’s just that, it's a series of trials, errors, and triumphs before you find what works for your body the best. Those that have faith in the process and believe that I won’t lead you astray succeed. It is those people that think it's not working fast enough, or that their progress is TOO slow, or that they NEED MORE cardio or MORE protein and start going off and changing things on their own that get frustrated and FAIL. The reason is that they didn’t follow the plan!
4. Successful people follow the nutrition plan. Yes, I know this isn’t what you wanted to hear but it’s the truth! The people who have the MOST success are those that really do truly follow the nutrition plan laid out. If you aim to eat 80% of the time according to your plan you will get results. If you track your food in a journal, you track your water intake, you allow yourself 1 or 2 treats per week you will make great steady, and healthy progress! You can have your cake and eat it too! I am on a mission this holiday season to keep people ACCOUNTABLE & MOTIVATED (along with myself) to continue their health and fitness journey. This time of year I’m not asking you to go 100% strict but what I am asking you is this.
Imagine how much more energy you would have to get in your holiday shopping, wrap presents, to visit with friends, to get in those extra work hours, and do everything on your holiday wish list if you ate healthier and exercised 30 minutes each day? Yes I am even committing to this! Did you know that just the simple act of fueling your body with really great nutrient-dense food can ALONE boost your energy level and metabolism? I know for a fact when I do my workout first thing in the morning that I feel more empowered and strong to take on the day! I find when I fuel my body with healthy foods I’m not starving or craving unhealthy snacks. #truthserum It did not happen overnight but through support, accountability, and daily motivation that I use to keep me accountable even when I feel like POOP! We are planning a healthy Thanksgiving dinner, some fun foods but I am staying accountable and eating on track 90% of the time. We know that when our treats happen they are earned and they are in moderation! It is truly just a shift in the mindset of taking it one day at a time and not getting overwhelmed by the big picture! So that’s the game plan! I feel that it would be super VALUABLE AND HELPFUL to do the same for YOU!!! ESPECIALLY in this weird season, we are in!
If you're ready for a change? I am finally getting back to my roots and doing what I love...... health & wellness! I am opening up a revolutionary new kind of health & wellness group for you. We will focus on Holiday Survival & taking care of us for the rest of the year.
