Hey there!

This month we are all about making your healthy lifestyle EASIER … 

And one big way to do that is to get rid of the things that are blocking you from your goals. 

I’ve got a quick list of 6 things you can stop doing now … so you can start getting results NOW! 

Ready? Let’s go! 

6 Ways You’re Making it Harder to Reach Your Goals 

1. Aiming too high, too soon.

This is a recipe for failure and frustration.  

Goals like shedding 20 pounds in a few weeks… or running a marathon within a couple of months can be daunting and discouraging. Instead, set smaller, realistic targets to fuel your long-term progress. If this is an area you struggle with, a coach can help. 

2. Comparing yourself to others.

It’s okay to draw inspiration from others but don’t let their progress define your worth.  

Plus, you never know behind-the-scenes of what it REALLY took them to get there. Your journey is unique, so own it and celebrate your progress. 

3. Over-restricting your diet.

Eliminating foods (and food groups), skipping meals, or obsessing over the scale is not only discouraging… but it can lead to cravings, fatigue, and a serious lack of motivation.  

Aim for a balanced, enjoyable lifestyle that supports your health and well-being.

4. Navigating without a plan.

Having a proven game plan to take you from where you are NOW to where you want to be will save you time and effort. Otherwise, you’re relying on guesswork to reach your goal. 

5. Short-term vision.

Being fit for a vacation or an event is great… but staying in shape is even better. Consider your long-term health and avoid the exhausting cycle of temporary fitness.

6. Isolating yourself.

Everyone needs support. A strong support network or a great coach can hold you accountable and help you reach your goals even faster.  

Having someone in your corner cheering you on – and helping you find the inner strength to step out of your comfort zone – is invaluable!

If this is an area you need help with, make sure you check out our Metabolism Jumpstart Program.

You’ll get more support for feeling great & loving your body from someone who’s already helped thousands of women like you achieve amazing results.  

Remember… what you DON’T do is just as important as what you DO do in reaching your goals. 

Make it a great day,

    Often women think they can only love their body if they hit a certain number on the scale, feel good in a certain size, or fix something they don't like about themselves. Post this manifesto on your bathroom mirror, at your desk or in your favorite journal. It will show you how to make loving your body a new habit - and get you closer to building a life you love.

    Loving your body is not an outcome, it's an input.
