What stands between you and your goals?

This month we’re tackling a big topic: getting rid of what’s standing between you and your goals. 

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

  1. 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!)

  2. 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.

  3. Read through your list and look for common themes:
    ​​​​​​​> time factors
    > mindset/motivation issues
    > confidence
    > support/accountability, etc.
  4. Get into problem-solving mode and TAKE ACTION!
  • Not enough time?
    Get creative. Find ways to sneak fitness/health 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.
  • Don’t have support?
    Find it! Think of the health/fitness-minded people in your circle and enlist them, search for an online community, and/or work with a coach (a real game changer)

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


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

How many calories do you burn every day?
