The Holidays are upon us!!! That means spending money, wrapping gifts, decorating, parties, parties, and more parties….which in turn leads to food, food, and more food….and you can top all of that off with a drink here and some dessert there!
With all of that coupled with the stress of the Holidays a little weight gain is inevitable…..unless you have a plan! Now this plan shouldn’t simply be geared towards weight loss alone. It should be a spiritual and physical journey of self discovery with the end result being some pounds shed and a new lease on a healthy active life! So how are we to do this?
Simple! 4 Weeks of Fabulous! Each week you will have a new assignment and each day you will be responsible for checking in with me and weekly with a friend who will hold you accountable, and most importantly, that you can trust. Below is the entire month’s line up!!! There are no excuses and NO surprises. Planning this out and knowing what you have to do will set you up for success! By 2011 you’ll be a whole new you….inside and out! (If you haven’t already, please send me your email! Send to: email@example.com Subject-4 Weeks)
(Week 1 will begin on Monday December 6th, but the 1st assignment begins on Wednesday Dec 1st.)
Wednesday Dec 1st: You will weigh in and write down the REAL number. You will then find your real life accountability partner and tell them that number, the REAL number. Saying it out loud makes it real. If you need an accountability partner I would be more than happy to be that for you, and please note your emails are for my eyes only. You will also need to begin your weekly journal entries. On this 1st day I want you to log your weight and how you felt when that number came up in front of you. Were you shocked? Happy? Disgusted? Mad? Sad? Whatever it is you need to write it down. Then below that entry I want you to write down 4 goals that are realistic. They can be anything!!! Drop 2 pounds the first week, meet new people, ask someone out on a date, spend more time with family, go hiking…ANYTHING.
Remember this an Inside Out Makeover!
