January 1: Becoming More This Year

January 1st

You’ve been here before. A new year staring at you with a blank slate.

 

The opportunity for anything you choose.

 

But chances are you’ve been motivated before to change our habits. Chances are you’ve been inspired to start a plan or better your life or whatever it was that has been important to you along your journey.

 

And yet, something happens along the way. You stop. You can’t really pinpoint when that happens but it does. And you become defeated by stopping, yet again and then tell yourself stories that you are not strong. You believe the voices in your head that whisper you are weak, you’ve failed so many times and you just don’t have what it takes to succeed.

 

I call B.S.

 

Hello! It’s been awhile! In case you’ve never seen my blog posts before, my name is Kathy and I’m a fitness coach, fitness trainer and all around fitness and health obsessed nut. I love challenges and my mission is to empower women over the age of 30 to take control of their body, their mind and their freaking lives – once and for all.

You’ve been a victim for much too long and it’s time to take control of your success.

 

In this first day of the new year, I want to talk about going deeper into our goals. We typically go shallow.

 

For example, you have most likely set basic outcome goals like, “I want to lose 25 lbs”.

Ok, great. And then what?

 

I want to look thinner.

Ok great and then what?

 

I want to be healthy…and then what?

 

That’s good, you say. That should do it.

 

I’ll then ask you if you were to lose 25lbs, look thinner (which would obviously be a fact after losing the weight) and healthy (which means nothing in reality because it’s not specific)…you will be happy?

 

Yes, you repeat.

 

POOF! Your wish is granted. Instantly, you are 25 lbs lighter, looking thinner and feeling healthy.

 

Then just as fast as it’s gone, it reappears.

 

What is this? you demand. How could this weight be gone and then reappear almost instantly?

 

It’s not magic, it’s what most dieters repeat, year after year. And over time, they end up growing larger and more unhealthy over time.

 

Why does this happen? Not because it’s your fault, I want to assure you, but because the goal wasn’t specific enough and the learned behaviors didn’t get to stick.

 

You see, we like instant.

 

Instant messaging; instant pots; instant results.

 

The problem with instant is that nothing is learned. There is no growth or knowledge gained. So ultimately, with the instant mindset, there is no long term success or change.

 

Success in this new year isn’t going to be about what you want to achieve. Why? Because when we reach a goal, it isn’t the outcome that makes us feel happy and successful.

 

That happy and successful comes from us waking up every darn day and completing what we say we are going to complete and then seeing our goals appear over time because we are doing the work.

If you start to enjoy eating good foods that you like and you do it every day this coming year; and then you also start to workout every week because you want to become stronger and stop stopping. So you workout every week for the next 52 weeks. You do these not because you have a goal of losing 25 lbs (cuz that goal won’t last, I promise you that!) but because you start to look forward to your workout sessions because of how they are making you feel about yourself. You are growing stronger. You are feeling more energetic and you are starting to become more confident in your abilities. Then what happens as the months go by? You obviously lose weight. You become healthier and you start to change the shape of your body and your life.

 

Success comes because you are now putting in the reps. Do you see why a quick instant diet solution is the complete opposite of this? Do you believe you have what it takes to become more in the new year? Share your goals below…

Will you run with me in 2016?

Every day we wake up to a blank slate of a day; ready to be filled in by what we choose and what we decide is most important to us. Have you ever sat daydreaming about your perfect world? Have you ever wondered if you could truly amount to more than what and who you are today?

I am going to tell you that I believe you can. I believe that we all can. What’s the hang up? Sadly, it’s ourselves. We tend to believe what we’ve learned from our past results and failures. We base our success on what we haven’t yet achieved. We stop before we have ever truly begun. It’s sad, and I hear it from so many others now that I am pushing beyond my own limitations.

Think about it. What would your “perfect day” in your “perfect life” look like  to you?

What time would you wake up each day? What would you do first each day? Where would you live and who are you surrounded by? What are your work hours? What do you consider your successes?

These are just a few of the blank sheets you can fill in and you can start it today.

A new year is upon us…again. A new year to start with big goals that have haunted you before and yet you’ve been too afraid to start because of your past.

Believe me, I can relate with those fears. And I can relate with big goals and big dreams for my life and my family’s lives. In reality, we are the only person who is holding us back. It’s time for us to push for more; to show ourselves that we are capable of so much more than we have become complacent with. Are you tired of being “tired”? Do you believe without a shadow of a doubt that you were destined for more? Do you believe you can somehow succeed in every way you have dreamt about before? Well, I am right here with you and I am ready to blow the roof off this coming year too! As I look back at 2015, I realize that I have grown in many ways and come far in my beliefs, in helping my customers succeed in major weight loss and fitness goals. I have worked with others in learning how to truly believe in their capabilities and in turn, it’s helped me believe more in my own. I believe we all work together, and yet we are only responsible for our own successes or failures.

The goals I have for 2016 are so big that they do honestly scare me. But it’s that kind of “scare” that can easily be felt as excitement and a sheer sense of awe and wonder. I have been playing it “safe” for much too long now and I am looking to focus on throwing off every bit of doubt and fear and diving headfirst into the success pool!

I am creating simple and duplicable systems to share with my team. I want to build an empire and have already laid out the groundwork. I know that I can easily stay where I am today and be “content” enough with my income; my drive and my goals…but I cannot accept that as my dream come true.

My dream come true looks like this: I see a team of women, just like me; who are busy, and driven and love their families. I see us working together on empowering other women to become successful in not only their bodies, health and fitness, but in their lives and in their daily successes. I see us coming together and braving the uncertainties of building a successful business to help others in the same way we are being helped. In doing so, I see my family being blessed for their patience and faith in my perseverance in a “better way” and a life of freedom to be healthy, happy and able to give to others as freely as we wish.

Are you wondering why I am sharing this with you today? Because I want to ask you a question, is this something you can relate with:

Are you are a go getter?
Are you driven?
Are you motivated for greatness?
Are you independent?
Are you into health and fitness?
Do you believe you are worthy of something greater than where you are today?
Do you have the drive to build a life by your own design?
Do you want to fire your boss?
D0 you want to work from home?
Do you want to wake up and decide how to spend your dream days?
Then I am looking for you! I want you on my team! I want to build this empire together and dream bigger than we’ve ever dreamed before.
I am currently accepting applications for my 2016 New Coach Training Group!

It’s a choice to do or not to do. You will have access to a system that is easily duplicable and simple to follow. You will learn to manage your time effectively. There are daily assignments, which can be done at your pace. There will be weekly focused group calls, there will be 1:1 calls and there will be access to our team resources and support group.  My goal is to help you, as a new health and fitness coach, succeed as soon as possible.
