Three Steps to reaching your Goal

Following 3 simple steps can help you reach your immediate and long term goals

It is Day 1.  I am soooo ready to reach my goals in 2010.  For me, there are so many that I truly have my work cut out for me.  So if you have any suggestions…please let me know!

So, Let’s get rockin!!

Step 1: Schedule It!!   For me, one of my goals is to get in great shape.  So I just scheduled the same time everyday and plan to meet a group to workout with.  I am meeting my “support team” tomorrow and we are actually going to take measurements and take before pictures.  This is actually step 2.

Step 2: Make it public.  Figure out my support system.  Don’t go it alone.  It is a fact that people reach their goals more often when they publicize them and ask their friends to hold them accountable.  I know of 3 sisters in three different states that do a conference everyday during their workouts.  They haven’t missed a workout in 4 years.  And they actually post their workouts online.

Step 3: Organize your tools!  Make sure you have everything you need; and when it comes to getting in great shape, the MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE PUZZLE IS WHAT YOU EAT.  Because I know I am busy, I will never be able to sit and eat every 3 hours as WE ALL SHOULD, so I ordered meal replacement bars and shakes.   I also bought a great cooler so I can make everything the night before.  I also ordered a great multiple vitamin so I know I am not wasting my workouts.

I will elaborate on the eating part for you. 

You just cannot eat whatever!!!! You must understand what your body needs and when to eat it.

You must understand post-workout nutrition and feed your body a carbohydrate AND protein formula for rapid replenishment of muscle glycogen immediately after exercise.

You must also understand that not eating doesn’t make you thin….  It makes you suck!!  Sorry for the language, but I deal with people everyday who stop eating when they feel fat and all that happens is you become miserable and pack on fat so much easier when you finally eat again.

A few tips which may help you:

1)      Plan a weekly menu and eat the same thing every day.  If you like variety, exchange a meal with only good stuff.  I eat kasha Go Lean everyday for breakfast.  If I feel crazy, I will have egg whites and whole grain toast.

2)      Have your supplements auto-shipped.  I use ProGrade Nutrition and they send me my supplements on the 1st of the month.  This way I always have them and save tons of money because they offer great deals when you set up auto-ship.  If you want to use ProGrade, make sure you follow this link

3)      Take a day off.  Every Sunday I eat whatever I want and as much of it as I like. 1 day a week won’t change a thing and will actually make you stick to your new eating plan.

That’s all for now.  I love you all.  Happy and healthy 2010. And as always, let me know if there is anything at all I can do for you.

Have an Awesome day,

Coach Kevin
