Don’t Make a New Year’s Resolution

This year I’m asking you NOT to make a New Year’s resolution. You read that correctly–DON’T make a resolution. They don’t work. Plain and simple. Take a look at the definition of resolution:

Definition of resolution

See the inherent problem? It’s vague, it’s ambiguous, and there’s nothing to sink your teeth into. It’s just a decision, not a plan of action.

More than 70% of people who make resolutions don’t keep them, and more than 40% never even start! Things don’t magically change on January 1st. You don’t suddenly become a different person, one who can stick to a diet or exercise program, if you never have in the past.

That’s why this year, we’re asking you to skip the resolution, and make a #REALsolution.

Follow this simple 4-step process to create a #REALsolution that will set you up for success all year long.

Step 1:
Set a clear, attainable goal. Think of exactly what you want to achieve, and be specific. Instead of,” I want to lose weight,” decide that, “I will lose 10 pounds by April 5.” Instead of “I want to eat clean,” decide that, “I will eat 7 servings of fruits and vegetables each day and I will try one new healthy recipe each week.”

Step 2:
Make a solid plan for achieving your goal. Choose a fitness program or nutrition plan to help you get there. Or, commit to using a program you already own and visit Beachbody’s YouTube channel for motivation and mini-workouts from Tony Horton and Autumn Calabrese.

Step 3:
Download this accountability contract. Sign it. Post it somewhere you will see it every day. Snap a photo of the contract and post it on Instagram. Make sure to tag #REALsolution and @beachbodyhq. We’ll pick 5 winners to win a program of your choice, one each week from December 26-February 1.

Step 4:
If you’re not already part of a Challenge Group, join our #REALsolution Challenge Group on Facebook where you can check in daily, get encouragement, and stay accountable.

When you’ve reached your goal, repeat this 4-step process again to continue to improve!

Here are examples of what your accountability contract might look like:

Fitkini Challenge

Is $4-$5 a day for 60 days worth achieving your New Years Resolution ?!

Wow I cannot believe it is already that time of the year again! This time last year so many women joined me in my Fitkini Challenge group and saw some incredible results!!! Today they are rocking their new bodies and new control over their health and fitness!!

Tonight I am opening up 10 Spots in my 4th Annual New Year’s Challenge Group! This group will begin January 5th! This year is your year to really lock in your New Years resolutions to get fit! Most Americans make a resolution that they will lose 10-50 LBS. They get about 3 weeks into the year, make some progress, and then fall into old habits! WHY?!?! THEY LACKED ACCOUNTABILITY and a sound game plan.

This isn’t about quick fixes, pills, wraps, starvation diets. This is about fitness, clean eating, and a lifestyle change.

Together we will complete the appropriate fitness program for you!! We will discuss your goals and figure that part out together.

You will follow a dialed in meal to keep you from being super hungry, and tired while burning body fat!

We will replace one meal a day with a super dense dose of nutrition.
You will pay $4-$5 a day for 30-60 days (replacing the cost of lunch btw).

I will be hosting this group with a select few of my personally sponsored coaches to help you achieve the results that you desire.

You will also work with a group of other women as equally motivated as you!!

Space is limited to 10 women so act now!

Never Too Late To Change Your Life

mebeforeafter1

I know well the desire to be COMFORTABLE. I believed when things were hard it was a “sign” that it wasn’t meant to be.

Luckily I reached a point in my life where I was in so much PAIN, that I had a wake up moment. Cuz that’s all pain is – a wake up call, an opportunity to pull your mind into the NOW, and face the results of the choices you have made.

And boy oh boy did I get to face the results of my choices!! My choices were to do what’s EASY. I was sleeping on the couch while my kids played on the floor, never engaging as a mother. Eating junk food with my husband while wasting hours watching TV each night. I had always given up on my goals when things got tough. There were so many choices I was making at that time that weren’t working for me. And the result? I was uncomfortable being ME.

My very painful moment that woke me up? Realizing I was not even leaving the house because I hated how I looked. I was MISERABLE, embarrassed, & uncomfortable. I find it amazing I even have “before” pics to show because I sure did avoid the camera!

I drew a line in the sand and said “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! I am FINALLY willing to be uncomfortable. Struggle is far less painful than regret, right?!!” I had the regret, and knew first hand how PAINFUL that was. So I was ready to struggle for the things I knew I deserved, that my family deserved. I knew it was time to LIVE. Time to BE the kind of person I would be PROUD of my kids modeling.

It wasn’t easy. I had do a lot of things I didn’t want to, like eat vegetables and get up and work out when I really wanted to sleep. lol. I had to train my mind to think differently. There were a lot of habits I had to break, and new habits I had to create in it’s place.

I started reading personal development, filling my mind with positive affirmations, surrounding myself with people who were headed where I wanted to be, and I EVEN set goals. And I’m not gonna lie, those goals made me really uncomfortable. It was a constant reminder that I’m not where I want to be yet.

But guess what??!!!

I changed my life. I CREATED a life that I’m proud of.

So now I feel a responsibility to spread the word that we have ONE life, ONE body, ONE chance here on earth. Don’t let life pass you by! Don’t let life HAPPEN to you, take control!

You get to CHOOSE the kind of life you want. So design your dream life, and then take action! Because all it comes down to is choosing different daily behaviors to bring about different RESULTS.

Just remember – it’s worth it. Even if those daily behaviors are uncomfortable at the beginning.

It’s never too late to change your life.
