I Challenge You

"When faced with two equally tough choices, most people choose the third choice; not to choose."
~Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

Have you ever been asked, "Are you up for the challenge?" Are you?

I'm giving some great women (who are putting their trust in me) a month long challenge that I hope will transform the way they live their daily lives.

I'm asking them to eat consciously, move daily and think about their health. Do you do that?

I've started a program I'm calling Healthy Reboot and it means just that, reboot your lifestyle in a healthier fashion. There are three areas of focus:

1) Eating consciously. What that means is simply thinking about what you're eating and why. What are your bad habits, for example, late night TV munching or overindulging in restaurants? And most importantly, are you eating the right things for your body to stay healthy?

I HATE the word diet. When you tell someone they need to diet, I don't care who you are, it's a depressing thought and they immediately think about everything they can't eat. There are no taboo foods. It's all about a balance.

2) Exercise. Move. Be active. Do you know that the starting goal on a Fitbit is 10,000 steps? That's the baseline goal. For one month, I'm asking my clients to move every day. Whether it's swimming, biking, yoga, an exercise class or simply mowing the lawn or walking the dog, I'm requesting something that moves the body every day. Could you commit to that? Do you already?

3) Coaching. As a coach, it's my job to ask the right questions and try to help with anything that might be a source of sabotage or trigger points that trip someone up. Often just talking about your health and what your goals are will keep the idea present and in perspective, making it easier to obtain. Also knowing that nothing happens instantly so making sure those goals are reasonable, not unattainable to the point of frustration.

I'm also your biggest cheerleader, motivator AND task master. I am the person, besides yourself, that will keep you accountable and help you when things don't go as planned or your train gets derailed.

It takes, on average, a month to make or break a habit. So that is what I'm offering, a month to make good habits and break bad ones. Of course, I'll also be available when needed after the month but if you're determined you can reboot your lifestyle in a month.

Get out of your comfort zone and explore your potential.

Do you need a reboot?
