It is crazy that we have wrapped up another year, another decade and are starting what I think will be an incredible year, and incredible decade!
This is the time of year that we start thinking about goals for the new year and setting resolutions. I know a lot of people set goals around health and wellness. That is what I have always done.
Today I want to share what I used to do before I found the FASTer Way to Fat Loss.
When it came to setting goals, this is what it looked like for me…I had goals to run X amount of miles, run X amount of races, or set a PR in the half marathon, 10K or whatever race I wanted to run better. I would include goals like I will eat healthier and get stronger this year.
My method for reaching those goals was to GOOGLE it. Maybe you do this too? Tell me in the comments. And if you do, kudos to you! You are thinking about your health and wellness and that is a GOOD thing!
So I would GOOGLE everything. I would Google training plans for running, speed workouts so I could be a faster runner, yoga for runners because I would be a better runner if I improved my mobility. I would Google healthy recipes because I had to eat healthy to be in good shape and to be a fit runner. I would Google strength workouts, so I could get stronger.
And it was all out there, it was FREE and it was at my finger tips.
The problem was I didn’t know how to put it all together properly. So instead of becoming a better, faster, stronger runner, I was injured a lot, my weight fluctuated up and down (and I didn't know why) and I did not get stronger.
I didn’t know what I was doing even though I thought I was doing all the right things.
I didn’t know that I was spending way too much time on cardio and not enough time on strength training.
I didn’t know that in order to get strong and build lean muscles, I needed to eat the right amount of foods.
I didn’t know that getting lean and staying fit relies a lot on eating at the right times.
These days people are GOOGLING all the same things I used to and information about intermittent fasting and carb cycling. They're searching for free meal plans on Pinterest.
And it’s all still out there and still FREE, but in order to get the best results, in order to get sustainable results, you need someone to show you how to use all of that information.
You need someone helping you implement intermittent fasting, so that you don’t damage your hormones. You need someone working with you on meal planning to make sure you are eating enough and not stressing your body by under-eating. You need a community to lean on and support you with motivation and guidance.
GOOGLE won’t do all that.
But the FASTer Way can!
My clients in the FASTer Way learn how to properly implement sustainable strategies and get daily one on one support and guidance from me. They get six weeks to practice putting all of the strategies to together to work with their everyday life. Because in order to be sustainable, it has to be something that they can successfully do ON THEIR OWN.
GOOGLE won’t do that.
