Well done on making it to Month 3! Woohoo 💜Month one was all about reviewing RESET, then we focused in on you and about your stories. This month, we are looking at your environment!
In research, we know that one of the most important factors in terms of developing a condition, curing a condition, sticking with a lifestyle, not sticking with a lifestyle is a person’s environment.
Is the person stressed? Are they supported? Are they doing the intervention solo? Are they in a low socioeconomic area? Are they surrounded by like-minded people?
You see, who is in your life really matters. And even more importantly, who you listen to really matters!
When you’re surrounded by people who are cheering you on and believing in you, then you’re more likely to succeed in what you’re doing.
What’s interesting, is that people who are in the right environment are more likely to not develop certain diseases/lifestyle associated conditions, but if they do, have a better chance of reversing them. Environment is one of the most important factors in our health.
So this month, you need to consider your environment. Particularly the people in your social circles and your family who are not supportive of your lifestyle change.
You need to consider how you are going to not let these people sow seeds of doubt into your life.
When someone says something that makes you question what you’re doing, consider these points:
1. Are they part of your tribe?
2. Do they have your best interests at heart?
3. Do they understand what you’re working towards?
4. Do they know your vision and goals?
5. Are they likely to be unhappy in their own situation?
Once you’ve done the mental checklist, then you can decide whether to take onboard what they’re saying or brush it aside and continue on being awesome!
Let’s detoxify our environment and crush this month together 💜
P.S. Remember – to succeed in this program just follow the To Do List!
Menus need to be sent to your coach by Friday lunch-time so they can be checked and confirmed before your weekend shop.
Your coach is looking for:
1. Adequate protein intake
2. Micronutrient diversity
3. An appropriate first meal
Make sure you have a look at the checklist and consider both protein and micronutrients in your planning.
REMEMBER! Every month you need to be setting your monthly fitness goals. This will help keep you on track and focused. It is your fitness that is crucial to your dietary flexibility so you need to stay focused and keep on putting in the hard yards! This means you should be refining and tweaking your programs and asking your coach for any amendments you might need for your programs.
Go back to your Monthly Missions PDF and check on your 12 month fitness goals. Are you on track? If yes, continue on. If not, what do you need to do to get back on track? Or do you need to change your goals? Remember your goals are fluid and will need to be changed at times. Remember, you’re not failing if you’re changing them. This is simply an important process in making sure you stay on track and focused.
Once you have assessed how you’re going and set your goals for the second month, make sure you send them to your coach on Trainerize.
You should also be recording weights and times in your current programs so that your coach can include these in your subsequent programs.
Goal setting is a crucial component to this program. The only way we know we are on track is via our goals and monthly missions.
Pleas take the time to sit down and think about what it is you want to achieve this month. Once you have completed your goals, please photograph them and message them to your coach in Trainerize.
