Day 4

➠ ➠ ➠FAILING TO PLAN IS PLANNING TO FAIL!!

Hey friend! I know this whole thing can seem sort of overwhelming. Especially during this prep week as we learn what is what. ♥️
→ Will I have time for this?
→ Will I be able to sustain and maintain it?
→ I am afraid I am going to miss something in this group because it’s so engaged.

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN HEAD AND BACK AWAY FROM THE EXCUSES! 😃

I will give you the secret right now. Do you want to succeed?
PLAN to succeed.
That is it. No gimmicks, no tricks, no difficult tasks. Just plan and you will win.

The two biggest struggles for us as challengers are
1)FOOD
2)Getting the workout in.

📅 And isn’t that the way it goes? We say “okay, I’m gonna start on Monday!”

But then Monday rolls around and we forgot to prepare and shop and wash our workout clothes and make time in the schedule to sweat …

So guess what. We are gonna PLAN FOR IT and we will succeed. It is as easy as that and no, I am not oversimplifying.

FOOD

Your answer is simple. Meal prep. When you get home from the grocery store, chop, separate, and package your food for easy consumption. MAKE IT EASIER TO GRAB the carrots and hummus than chips. Make it easier to throw the salad fixings in your mini cooler than it is to hit the drive thru!
*Yes, meal prep takes some extra time at the end of your grocery store run. So what? You came here to succeed. Invest the time so you can be healthier. This is NOT about weight loss guys. This is about fueling ourselves properly, many of us for the first time in our lives (yes, I am also talking to those of you who think you eat pretty well already. I especially can’t wait for you guys so see where those gaps and roadblocks are and how much BETTER you feel overall once you close those gaps). Check out the video below for an example of a quick meal prep session.

Schedule. Your. Dang. Workout.

If your evenings are busy and you know things get in the way at the end of the day GET UP EARLY AND PUSH PLAY! Yes! Even if you are not a morning person.

Do we want to elevate our awesomeness to the next level? HECK YES!! Then we need to do something we don’t normally do.

If you are newer to this, then my best suggestion to get up early and get it over with. I don’t have a magic wand over here to make you do it or to do it for you. So if you are not sure what your afternoon or evening is going to look like then PLANNNNNNN!

  • Lay out your workout clothes the night before (or even sleep in them)!
  • Have your BOD (Beachbody On-Demand) cued up and even take a peek at the workout you’ll be Pushing Play on!
  • Set your alarm. When it goes off, get up and push PLAY!
  • Then jump into our group and tell us all about it!

If you ever do that and regret it, I will eat my hat.

We guys can DEFINITELY do this. But it is going to take some effort on your part to get the momentum started.

Change is uncomfortable. It always has been and it always will be. 

It is why so many spectacular people concede to a life they don’t deserve and possibly don’t even like. Because rocking the boat is so scary. Lucky for you, you have this tribe to hold you up during the process.

Be okay with the fact that parts of this might be uncomfortable at times.

But rest assured that it won’t always feel tough. Very, very soon — very quickly, many aspects of this will become a habit that is just a natural part of your routine!

➠ ➠ ➠ACTION ITEMS TO COMPLETE TODAY + THIS WEEKEND

👉🏼Check out the both of the videos above.

👉🏼Schedule a time today or this weekend to loosely plan your dinner plan for the week ahead!

You can:

  • utilize the awesome recipes through your BOD account (I especially like the filter for “5-ingredients or less” because I don’t personally love the kitchen); or,
  • stick with your family staples and make them fit into the containers; or,
  • a combo of the two.

It is really going to be up to you because some people LOVE trying new recipes and playing in the kitchen, and others prefer simplicity.

👉🏼Make a grocery list based off the ingredients you’ll need for the week.

👉🏼{{Recommended}} Choose a couple of staples you can count of for breakfast and lunch. Add your variety to snacks and dinner time. Remember, a staple isn’t forever! But once you find something you like that works, stick with it until you get bored, and then you can swap it out!

Examples:

  • pre-made egg cups for breakfast, big salad for lunch (also known in our group as “Hugh Jass Salad” 😂)
  • Shakeology for breakfast, leftovers for lunch

You can also rotate your weekly dinners in the same way, having similar things that WORK for you week to week, and swapping things out when you get bored.
