THE THING THAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK

This could be what you put in your body (food) … what you focus on with your thoughts and beliefs … and anything else that’s cluttering up your health and fitness journey.

The first step is probably the hardest …

It’s getting REAL and identifying exactly what’s holding you back. 

It’s a challenge because we can get into autopilot with our everyday life … and we don’t even notice what’s in our way!

I have an exercise you can do to help.

Grab your favorite pen and a journal – or open a Google doc – and start writing. 
(Pro tip: The words you will write are for YOUR EYES ONLY and you can throw away/delete what you write later if you want!)

Make a list of ALL of the reasons you think you haven’t been able to achieve your goals.

Seriously, write down everything

Maybe you hate getting up early … don’t like “healthy” foods … feel like you don’t have willpower or motivation … feel overwhelmed … feel alone in your journey … or maybe there are factors outside of your control.

Or maybe you think your goals are for other people – not for you.

Let loose and write it ALL down.

THEN, read through your list and look for common themes: time factors, mindset/motivation issues, confidence, support/accountability, etc.

Now it’s time to get into problem-solving mode and TAKE ACTION.

  • Don’t have support? Find it! Think of the health and fitness-minded people in your circle and enlist them, search for an online community, and/or work with a coach (a real game changer).
  • Not enough time? Get creative. Find ways to sneak health and fitness into the spare moments of your life. A coach can help with this, too.
  • Mindset issues? Surround yourself with motivation – read self-development books, watch inspiring YouTube videos, and keep a journal to track your progress. 
    This is a HUGE area where a coach can help. 

Imagine how great will it feel to finally ditch the obstacles between you and your goals. 

INCREDIBLY GREAT.

And we’re here for you if you don’t want to do it alone.

7 “Bonuses” of Junk Foods

To be clear, when we’re talking about ultra-processed foods, we’re referring to manufactured foods or “food products.” They come in a package and usually are ready to eat, although sometimes you have to heat them up (like ramen soup, frozen dinners, or those “helper” boxed meals that you mix with
