How To Be More Disciplined in Your Nutrition.

Happy Epic Wednesday Motiv8ers,

Coach Ty Here.  Crew as many of you know every month we have some sort of challenge for all of you.  So far we have had the fiber challenge, green smoothie challenge, and the hydration challenge.  We use these challenges to help push you to slowly start adopting those new healthy habits that will help you become that new person you are looking for.  As June's Hydration Challenge is coming to an end Team Motiv8 is gearing up for a new challenge coming this Friday.  July 1st.  You will have to tune back in on Friday to see what the new challenge will be but before that challenge happens I want you to take a minute and really read today's blog post. To make our next challenge really work for you you need to take today's blog post to heart.  So PLEASE check it out!

Let's start this blog post off with a quote from me: 

"You choose how you experience your environment and daily life!!!"

So, choose to be EPIC and AWESOME!!! =)

Alright Motiv8ers, time for our main topic of the day: How To Be More Disciplined in Your Nutrition and with your GOALS!

First let me ask you a question,

why haven't you started eating healthier yet?   

What is stopping you?

In our American World, we hear good advice all the time on how to manage our day.  We also hear the truth about how bad processed food, fast food, dairy, candy, fried food, and box meals are for us. 

Most of us know the truth.  We know which foods are bad for us. We know why we are still overweight.  We know why we are not as fit as we want to be, and we know what we have to do in order to make our dreams and goals happen.

So, what is stopping us from being the healthiest person we can be?

Why can't we just get started eating right?

Why can't we take this information, start applying it to our lives, and start living the life we want to live?

What is holding us back?

Sit down and ask yourself these questions, Crew.  Be real with yourself.  What are the factors or reason why you haven't started yet?

Basically crew, it just comes down to you haven't disciplined the new habits you want to adopt enough.  You haven't laid out the action that you need to do everyday to make yourself successful.  Check out this quick 8-minute video about how to be more disciplined.

To sum this video up, here are the 4 things you need to do:
  • Visualize your dream and really connect to why you want to make a change;
  • do your work first before you answer everyone's else needs;
  • schedule a block of time where you only do the action you need to do, don't mindlessly go through your day, and use a calendar;
  • and set up some social rewards.
If you want the details of each of these topics, check out the video. Seriously, it is awesome.

Also, let me add two more things to this topic.

First, the big Motiv8er here is the calendar.  You have to program exercise and eating right into your daily routine and schedule.  Crew,  I say this all the time.  You have to turn these two things into a daily habit.  If choosing the right foods, shopping for the right foods, spending time prepping the right foods, and exercising isn't part of your daily habits, and are something you only do when you have time for it, you are never going to get it done and see results.

Just say this to yourself, "I am the type of person that eats healthy and I will set some time each day to making sure I eat right."  Then, start planing.  Also take Coach Kaolin's Advice.  She posted this the other day.

Second: Your Environment. This one is HUGE!!

Many of us want to eat better but the temptations from the world, the environment we live in, and the peer pressure from our friends and family are just too heavy.  It takes a very strong willed person to say no to bad food when there is a large table of everything you can think of: pizza, ice cream, chips, fried chicken.  We see this stuff all the time at work, on our drive home, in commercials, at parties, and possibly from our family when we get home.  It is hard, I know.  These cravings are crazy hard to fight ,and real food just doesn't sound as good in the moment.

Ok, this is what you do.

Take out a pen and a notebook.  This will only work if you write it down. Trust me.  I've been listening to some neurologist stuff.  =)

I want you to write down every moment in your day when you where tempted to eat bad and you did.  Be truthful with yourself.  Ask yourself how it made you feel.  If it is a moment that made you feel bad then write it down.  Then, write down what you could have done differently, or what you wish you would have done differently in that moment to make a better choice.  

Once you are done, re-read it.  When you confront those moments again the next day you will remember the action that is better for you then just following your cravings.

This works trust me.  I have done it myself!

Or, try to change your environment.  Find a way to take the temptation out of the equation.

Crew, I hope this post has you thinking a little bit on how to make the change you are looking for.  If you have questions post below our bug your coach.

Crew, Keep Being EPIC and Don't Forget to Be AWESOME!!!

Coach Ty Out!
