Accountability, Support, and Mindset Matter WAY More Than You ThinkAug 23, 2019
“If you know what you should be doing...why don’t you just do it?”
“You have the knowledge..you know the process...just make it happen.”
“You help other people achieve this EXACT thing...why is it so hard to help yourself?”
These were the thoughts that continuously ran through my mind as I was trying to figure out why it was so hard for me to buckle down and get my shit together.
I had put on some extra weight after dealing with a pretty stressful year..moving across the country, becoming self-employed, writing a book, and suffering from a drawn-out back injury that prevented me from participating in my normal CrossFit workouts (that was the icing on the cake that definitely put me into a more depressed state...working out is my stress reliever and the part of my day I look forward to most. Not having that was a huge downer).
Anyway, I was depressed and just felt super uncomfortable in my own skin. I knew I wanted to make a change, set a goal, and get back to feeling myself again.
But I was struggling…
Struggling to get motivated, to make a plan, to try new things...
And then one day it just hit me. I was on a lunchtime walk around my neighborhood in San Diego (because I couldn’t do my normal lunchtime activity...get my ass whooped in CrossFit) and I had this sort of ‘epiphany.’
I know, I know, sounds like B.S…but I’m serious, it hit me like a pile of bricks.
I realized that I was trying so hard to do everything on my own that it was causing me to become paralyzed.
Put together my own nutrition plan, write my own workouts, try to keep myself accountable...all of these things that I knew I could do, and that I LOVED doing for other people, just turned into a chore and became another stressor in my life.
So I stopped...I stopped trying to do it all on my own and I decided to get some help.
I knew I needed to change things up with my diet protocol and have someone to bounce ideas off of.
I knew I needed a long-term plan with continued support and guidance both mentally and emotionally.
And I knew I had to make a financial commitment.
So, I hired my own nutrition and fitness coach, committed to a 3-month contract with him, that turned into 6...and is now going on 7.
I set a specific goal for myself and we made a long-term plan together that included experimenting with new diet strategies, implementing an exercise plan to work through my injury, and create more mindfulness in different areas of my overall lifestyle to create new, sustainable habits.
I learned SO much about myself throughout this process and realized that I had all of these new insights and strategies that worked and that needed to be shared.
So over these past few months, I’ve taken ALL of the strategies I’ve learned and implemented for myself and put them into creating my Keto For Women Program.
I cannot be MORE excited to share them with you and help you reach YOUR full potential and become your best self!
