There comes a time when you have to look at yourself in the mirror and be honest with yourself….

“Why am I not in the shape I know I should be in?”

“Why do I keep self sabotaging my results when I know I want to be better?”

“What do I need to STOP doing in order to make this possible?”

“What do I need to START doing in order to make this possible?”

“Who do I need to tell my goals to help keep me accountable?”

“Who do I NOT tell my goals to because they are a negative Nancy?”

Chances are as you are asking yourself these questions, the correct answer is the one that immediately pops into your head. Your gut and emotional intelligence almost ALWAYS know the right answer…

…it’s your heart and your head that make the wrong choices!

So how do you change your ways and stop repeating that same cycle?

There are so many experts and gurus that will tell you a million different strategies, but to me there is just one simple step: make decisions faster!

Start making quick decisions and go.

Stop letting yourself get talked out of what you want in life. Start trusting your gut and stop trusting your emotions.

Don’t worry about what might happen or could happen and instead focus on WHAT WILL HAPPEN if you consistently make the changes necessary in your life.

Think about how it would feel, how you would feel and how your life would be different if you were in better shape today.

Be the author of your own story and write the happiest ending you could every imagine.

Then, step-by-step and day-by-day start making it happen!

Is it better to eat the same thing all the time, or is it necessary to change things up all the time? It’s such a confusing split of philosophies!

We are in our second week of our transformation challenge, and one thing we often find is a complete binary 50/50 split of clients that have either…

1.) tried to get WAAAAAY too fancy with their food and meals, or

2.) have tried nothing new and eaten the same meals for 9 straight days

So which way is better?

Ideally there’s a happy middle between the two that I’d say our most successful clients find.

It’s typically a balance of the same 2 or 3 breakfasts, 4 or 5 lunches/dinners, and 3 or 4 snacks.

Then when they see a cool recipe on Pinterest, Facebook or from a friend, they try it and either add it to their repertoire or move on with their life.

So no matter which side of the fence you currently sit on, it might be a good idea to write quick list for yourself of your favorite or go-to meals.

Break it up into these 3 categories: breakfast, lunch/dinner, snacks

This is how you start to customize and create your own personalized meal plan.

Otherwise if you’re just following a list of meals that I’ve written or that you found online, you are following MY personalized meal plan with the foods that I enjoy most.

I personally do not really like eggs, or fish, or really anything but chicken and beef. So when I write a meal plan for you, that’s what you’ll see because that’s what I like. Make sense?

Creating your own personalized list could be a turning point for you that helps you turn this into a lifetime of healthier eating following your own customized plan.

Today could be that day. Just open up your notes section in your phone or text yourself a quick list right now!
