How to stick to your goal

Uncategorized

Hi. This is Tori your certified health coach and creator of kick-ass life with tori.com
It's already March 2018. How is your new year resolution going? Do you have New Year's resolution? Or you never make one? According to statistic brain.com, only 9.2% of people achieve their resolution. Can you guess what is top 3 New Year's resolution in 2017? #1 was "Lose Weight and Healthier Eating." 2nd was "Life, Self Improvements", 3rd was "better Financial Decisions". But why more than 90% people fail yes 90 %? Today I want to tell you how you can stick to your goals so that you can finally lose unwanted body fat and get a body you've always wanted. Let's dive in.

1. Do one thing at a time.
Let's say you want to lose 20 lbs in 3 months. You decided to stop eating gluten- no bread, no pasta, no cookies. Then no sugar. Stop drinking wine, no meat. Blah blah blah...... Basically, chicken breast and broccoli. Alright. Oh, no more happy hour with coworkers remember? Don't forget, you promised yourself to go to the gym 4 days a week. Run on the treadmill 30 minutes and lift weights. Never mind you were a couch potato until December 31. All the sudden, you have to cook, go to the gym, no more happy hour. It is a lot. I get it. You want it so bad, but your brain and body just can't handle too many changes at once. You will be overwhelmed and end up not doing any of it. You know what I am talking about.
Trust me I've done it.
To solve this problem, do it one thing at a time. Instead of cutting everything at once, maybe focus on cutting sugar when you feel that you got that, then cut out all your packaged processed foods. Then when it becomes easy to do, move on to another one.
When I decided to go on a Ketogenic diet, I was already sugar-free but I had to stop eating potato chips but I just could not cut out rice. So I stop all the snacky foods first then finally cut out rice. It took me a while but I never look back. Although, I still do eat french fries and sushi when I'm carb backloading. So you know I am not eating ketogenic way of eating 100% of the time. I am going to talk about carb backloading in another video.

2, Set a realistic goal
It's good to set your goal big but sometimes you overestimate what you can do in a year or just wishful thinking. For example, Losing 60 pounds in 6 months. Yes, some people who are on a ketogenic diet do accomplish. But losing average 5 lbs/week is a realistic number. Probably it's not that hard first 20,30 lbs but then losing last 10 pounds is going to be hard. Or making first 6 figure income this year from making $20,000, I am sure it's possible but you better have a plan.
So instead of making 1 big plan, start small and plan exactly how you are going to do it.

3, Find an accountability partner
You know you try harder or behave better when someone is watching you right? So if you are doing a ketogenic diet, do it with your friend or your husband or if you can't find anyone, you can always join Facebook groups or online challenge program. No excuse. ok? If you are interested I have a brand new facebook group at kickassweighlossproject. You can ask questions and we support each other anything about weight loss and life.

4, Be aware of your thoughts
What does it mean, being aware of your thoughts? If you are like me who has done yo-yo dieting, you know you tell yourself things like" OMG you are such a loser you can't even do what you said you were gonna do" or" I had a stressful day, I need to drink." or " I took hard spinning class today, it's ok to have a burger and fries". You know what? Those thoughts are not real. You are not a loser. You just haven't got the result you want yet, and ok you had a stressful day, I get you, but you don't need a glass of wine to take the edge off. Instead, take a bath, go take a walk with your husband and talk about it. How about binge eat after a hard workout? Remember, you can't out-exercise a bad diet.
Every time, you tell yourself that you know it doesn't help you to lose weight, pause and come up with better thoughts which support your goal.

5, If you fall off the wagon. Get right back on.
I just hate to say fall off the wagon. First of all, you are not a boxer, you don't need to weight in to get a certain class. Do you want permanent fat loss, not temporary water loss right? So what do you have to do? Make your diet as a lifestyle. Don't treat a diet as a temporary thing. If you start a ketogenic diet, you are going to live ketogenic lifestyle maybe when you reach your goal, you may want to switch to Paleo or low carb diet or stay in keto. Whatever it is, if your diet is unrealistic like eating 500 calories a day and run 1 hour a day, I guarantee when you get off the diet, you are going to gain all the weight back and more. Trust me. I know this. I've done it so many times. So find the way of eating that you can stick with it for a long time.
