Are you ready to ramp up your results? I hope so because this month I’m focusing on the TOP ACTIONS you can take to 10x your results …even (especially!) if you’re stuck in a plateau.
Basically, a plateau is when your results stall out and you stop seeing the progress you saw when you first started your program.
Nearly EVERYONE goes through a plateau from time to time. It’s not a fun place to be – but the good news is that if you DO experience one (or are in one right now), there are a few key things to pay attention to…
1. You Are “Kinda-Sorta” Following Your Program.
Have you started to slack on your plan? Be honest! This is one of the top causes of plateaus and it’s a good sign to shake things up with new recipes, workouts, or injecting some more FUN into the mix!
2. Your Body is Used to Your Workouts/Plan.
This is another top cause of plateaus! The good news is this means you’re fitter/healthier. It also means it’s time to (safely) challenge your body in a different way.
Regular updates to your plan is going to be KEY to your success! A great coach can help you quickly identify small tweaks to fire up your results again.
3. Hormones, Stress, Sleep Deprivation, and More. Your body isn’t a machine! It’s an incredibly complex organism that functions best when it’s in balance.
So many things can throw it out of balance, from being overtired to overstressed and even undernourished and overworked.
4. You’re Not REALLY In a Plateau (Part 1). If you only rely on the scale to track your results, you’re missing out!
Your body could actually be changing in a big way EVEN if the scale doesn’t move. That’s why it’s important to measure other things – like the percentage of body fat or circumference measurements.
5. You’re Not REALLY In a Plateau (Part 2). If you’re struggling to lose those “last 5 pounds,” you might be at a weight that’s healthy and natural for your body.
Losing those pounds can take extra effort – as can keeping them off once you hit your goal.
I hope this list helps you rev up your results.
The fastest and surest way to get – and keep – your momentum going is to work with an experienced coach with a tried & tested program. They’ll be able to make adjustments as you need to make sure you stay on track with your goals to get the results you’re looking for!
We’ve been talking a lot about resilience and taking personal responsibility for our health and fitness this month. Today, we’re going to get REAL on the mindset, habits, and actions you can take to become more resilient.
How many kinds of stress are you dealing with right now? (There are SIX major types of it.) Stress is like a double-edged sword for our health. In manageable doses, it can actually be good for you and boost your resilience.
The other day I was in the middle of a workout and listening to a podcast. A guest said something to the effect of: “Change is going to happen no matter what. It’s up to YOU to decide whether that change is progress.”
Here’s a fact: even if you love veggies, it can be hard to get the required amount (2 to 3 cups a day) and that’s a shame, because veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that your body needs to function at its very best.
