Well, we're a few days into the new year and I imagine some focused 'resolutionists' out there are out on their missions - getting fit, going to the gym and starting diets. And if you are one of them and are out there lovingly motivated, inspired and with a sustainable game plan then I applaud you and cheer you on!!
However! IF - you're stepping into your 'new year, new me' approach with nothing more then fleeting statements such as: 'I'm gonna work out every morning for an hour from now on' and 'I'm not eating carbs anymore' because your GOAL is to lose weight, then I sincerely question and wonder about your approach. You very well might succeed but the chances are slim. The problem is, is that weight loss is not a goal to pursue - it is a consequence of other, more meaningful goals that you have pursued. And these, more appropriate goals are the ones that I am here to help you formulate. With specific action steps, that include timelines and milestones. But don't worry - it's not just charts and targets and super dry disciplined kind of stuff. We also aim to make it fun and playful. Perhaps, sweating it out in a packed gym is not actually the way you want to spend your time. Maybe - tuning into an online, streamed workout class with AMAZING music, joined virtually by other friends that you know is more appealing and doable! Or you discover that an hour long session every morning is not even effective and a solid 15min workout is enough!
There's also the food prep game plan and self care strategy that should ideally go along with any kind of self-improvement undertaking. If you really want to get serious about weight loss - then FORGET about weight loss! Focus on the ACTION steps that will get you there. And if your lost or overwhelmed with ideas - then call me!! And/or join my private Facebook group Harvest The Day!
Other welcomed side effects, (besides losing weight!) of working in this way with me are the following:
- better sleep
- less stress
- more energy
- less anxiety
- better relationships
- inner peace
- and so much more!
