Welcome to a difficult journey. Changing the way you think about exercise, and food, and attitudes, and positivity and how you move, is difficult.
But if it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be a challenge
Many will have tried a diet before: most diets are a 2 week Thing. Diets like that are bullshit, wrong, unhelpful and commissioned by stupid ( psychologically damaged) magazine editors to get more readers.
The diet patterns we want you to establish are life long. Over the next 46 day we want you to invest in failure: try and fail to up your diet game, try and fail to record. Try and fail to cut down on refined carb Every time you try and fail to get rid of a bad habit, you slowly shake its grip on you. It may take 18 to 50 attempts. I call it “terrorising the habit”. Every time you fail, consider why you failed , and learn from that.
Over the next few weeks we will talk in depth about eating ideas.
TASK try and identify the best thing you eat, and the worst
So much of living a successful life depends on your ability to create habits. Phillip Rolling and I are playing with the Tiny Habits Programme
TASK Join the Tiny Habits Programme . Its a free sign up.
You must achieve 10,000 steps a day. Hold yourself to this standard. Post a photo of your pedometer reading every day on Instagram, facebook or Twitter. Include failures. If you failed today, say why and make plans for tomorrow! Its Ok to be lazy as long as you know you are being lazy. If you are lazy, forgive yourself and correct it.
TASK post your pedometer reading
Start dealing with this. Become positive. Praise others, help them on their way. Any one who is rude to you , or snaps at you, or bullies you or is inpatient with you is simply crying out for help.
Understand that these people are hurting. Motivate them by your example of love and forgiveness. This concept underpins all effective regimes.
on a 121 level, you may not be the person who will directly help them, but sometimes your example of patience, forgiveness and old fashioned goodness can inspire others.
TASK privately forgive the next person who wrongs you, Feel empathy as they are probably having hard time.
Be a Positive influence! Walk around with a BIG TICK*!!!
* obviously, this should be a virtual big tick. Try and not write on your forehead, otherwise you will look as stupid as me
