How Sarah Lost 10 PoundsApr 14, 2022
The sun has yet to rise; however, I'm feeling hopeful in the early-morning darkness.
With a hot cup of coffee to my left, medium roast to be exact, I began to type these words.
That’s been my routine for the better part of the last decade and I would be darned if anything is going to get in the way of that.
Every morning there are three things I’m certain of.
I’ll read, I’ll write, and I’ll drink some coffee.
If one of those things don’t happen, well, it’s going to be a rough day.
However, I’m pretty certain that they’ll happen most days.
It’s my routine.
Just like I have my routine, you have your routine.
Think back to the start of the the COVID-19 lockdown.
I challenge you to look at what routines you HAD.
Heck, some people I know quit all types of physical activity during the entire quarantine.
But you must be relentless and keep going no matter what.
Now, more than ever.
I've been hustling my face off, to make sure my beloved clients are staying healthy, strong (mentally and physically), and lean with things like:
✔ Completely Done-for-You 21-Day Nutrition Masterclass
✔ Team Support (Livestream Q/A)
✔ 1-on-1 Accountability with Coach Joe
✔ Mental Health Guide
✔ Mobility, Core, and Stretching Learn-by-Doing Videos
Think about the routines that you may have put on the back burners, and insert them into your day to create one thing…
It’s a fundamental human need to have certainty.
Unfortunately, outside of your little bubble, there’s not a lot of certainty in the world right now, so we must create it for ourselves.
As you map out a new week, look at the routines you enjoy, the “non-negotiable” things in your life that are important, and put them into your weekly planner so it creates some certainty for you.
Doing this not only allows you to get those things done, but helps with your stress and anxiety by creating something you can count on.
It could be as simple as the morning cup of medium-roast coffee or working out at a scheduled time.
The task, the thing, is not as important as the routine of it. The certainty of it.
Give this a try this week and let me know how it goes.
How Sarah Lost 10 Pounds
You know I'm a big believer in celebrating your successes.
So today I'm celebrating my friend, Sarah.
She lost 10 pounds in just 6 weeks.
How? She followed a proven plan.
There was a method to the madness.
Sarah was sick and tired of delaying her success with another trial-and-error approach.
She was done with procrastination.
No need to reinvent the wheel.
Are you constantly reinventing the wheel?
If yes, stop now.
Focus on the fundamentals and ditch the complex.
Remember fat loss doesn't need to be complicated.
Simplicity always wins when it comes to getting lean and strong... having more energy... having less disease risk.
Nothing about getting lean and strong needs to be rocket science.
Not in it’s most basic form.
Does it make sense that you can eat "unlimited amounts" of something, just because it's your "cheat day," and it will have no effect on your bodyfat levels?
Let me explain with some simple math.
Say you need 14,000 cal for the week, to maintain athletic levels of bodyfat.
It's your last meal of the week, on Saturday night, and you're at 13,500cal.
Technically you have 500cal remaining to stay within your weekly energy requirements.
(Remember that a calorie is simply a unit of energy.)
You proceed to eat an entire large pepperoni pizza (around 4,500 calories) to celebrate a week of mindful nutrition.
This puts you at 18,000cal for the week (a surplus of 4,000 calories).
Do these extra calories magically disappear?
Of course not.
Your body simply stores them for future use.
When your liver and muscle glycogen stores are full, everything else gets stored as fat.
Bottom line: Calories matter, just as they always have.
In fact, by the time most folks get to 40 years of age, you've probably dabbled in more complicated exercise-and-diet plans than you'd care to reveal.
Once again, Sarah is a good example of someone who focused on the basics and had great success.
In our talk, Sarah shares how much of the good stuff (practicing mindful nutrition, training smart) is actually easy.
But that doesn’t prevent most folks from messing it up, of course.
Way too many people, when presented with a proven system to get lean and strong, simply refuse to take action.
And, as a result, do not accomplish their priority-one goal.
Others do it unconsciously, because the "I’m not worthy" demons are relentlessly busy encouraging chaos and negativity.
I’ll bet some readers are experiencing this right now.
Maybe even you.
