Day 4 Folks!
This is the 4th Day of your Prep Week!!
Today we are going to continue with the theme of strengthening your mindset before approaching this 21 day challenge.
But ALSO we are going to talk about your nutrition and how to set yourself up for success. Two videos today: One shorter one by Tony Robbins talking about nutrition and another by Les Brown. The Les Brown video entitled You Gotta Be Hungry is longer (44 min) so take time to watch that when you can, because it will GET YOU GOING!! I PROMISE YOU!! It’s about the fact we need to start living as if each day were our last. Valuing each moment that we are blessed with. Honor yourself as your word. Absorb and educate yourself with the principles and values you want to live by…but DONT STOP THERE! Create an action plan with goals and SPECIFIC steps to succeed.
That being said…
What can I say. I am SO ABSOLUTELY PROUD of this group…and we are ONLY in prep week! The daily check ins AND interaction between all of us has been great. Seriously. You have no idea how thankful I am to have all of you here, together!
Again, friendly reminder, MONDAY is our Day 1. Have you done your measurements? Have you entered the Beachbody Challenge on the website?
Also, for those of you that are NEW customers on Shakeology, approximately 2 weeks in you will want to contact your sponsor to switch you over to distributor status before month 2. If you ordered a challenge pack it’s FREE to do so….and you will save money every month on your Shakeology…and you can cancel at any time. Contact your sponsor for details.
As you can see, I tend to run my challenge groups different than many of the ladies…or men for that matter.
I like to focus on MINDSET first and get your personal development on point BEFORE we get into the nutrition aspect of it.
Today we are going to talk a little about diet and nutrition and end with a great video from Tony Robbins that I play for all my challenge groups…it just never gets old.
Why is it so hard to fight obesity? Why is it so hard to keep the weight off?
Well, it goes against our natural human drives. The humans that were fed and ate the most were the ones that survived. The stored fat was utilized for energy and conserved when needed. If you didn’t eat you probably didn’t live. So we are constantly fighting these hormones being released in our brain that signals us to eat.
How do you overcome this?
Well, first you must UNDERSTAND it. We must appreciate that it is in our DNA to eat and eat and eat. Also we must appreciate that food is chemically altered, sugar added, and preservatives as well…all acting to cause our brain to release chemicals telling us we are hungry….and so you keep eating, seeking out more food.
But what is stronger than sugar? Than simple carbs?
Our willpower. Our purpose. Our drive. AND food that is DENSE, nutritous and helps generate a tremendous amount of energy for us. Spinach, Broccoli, greens,etc…are nutrient dense so our brain says THANK YOU.
This can fight off the hunger chemicals…at least for a little while.
So we must also establish an emotional WHY for us to overcome the bad habits. Something we keep in front of us at all times.
We must speak out loud every morning: ” I wll feed and nourish my body with amazing food from the earth and supplement it with superfoods that will allow my mind and body to operate at a maximum capacity. I WANT and NEED CLARITY, FOCUS and PASSION to SUCCEED.
What’s next? Well, obstacles will happen. The struggle is real. So we must commit to surrounding ourselves with other men and women that want the same thing.
This is SO important. One person in a community of fast food nation will fail 100% of the time.
Even one family in a community that doesn’t exercise or eat properly…will fail 100% of the time.
You must immerse yourself in this new life. It’s your life. You deserve it.
We must let our environment work FOR us. Take a look at your kitchen and your pantry.
Throw about ANYTHING that might cause you to get off track OR something that is just crap. PLEASE PLEASE don’t use the excuse that your husband, wife or child likes it. Don’t be that weak. You are the savior of the family and doing this FOR them.
Just as the Bible says, we must always be in the service of others for salvation. Basically, helping us understand the way comes first. But it’s REQUIRED to turn around and share this with your loved ones, friends and community.
There are SO many great youtube videos on willpower and science behind motivation…and the struggle of overeating…but it’s actually easier than you think.
Balance. Turn your brain off and learn a proven structure.
Team Beachbody has that structure. Simple nutrition guidelines. Superfood shake to make up for all the nutrients we dont’ get anymore AND to make up for us just not being perfect. Daily exercise. Water intake. Community.
There you have it. So simple…yet it’s human nature to doubt and throw stones at something that might cause them to disrupt their daily routines.
Ok, without further ado, here’s today video:
ACTION STEP FOR TODAY:
1. Go in your pantry and fridge and remove anything that might cause you to get off track. TAKE A PICTURE of what you decided to throw out, post it on your wall and say you are doing this for accountability..or whatever else you’d like to say…about why this change is important to you…and tag me in it.
2. Let me know your thoughts on Tony’s Video today. When you watch, please let me know your emotions and thoughts about Les Brown’s Video as well!
Have a great day!
