So yesterday I was asked what the Christmas Fit Challenge involved.
So here it is:
We have a flexible start date from next week:
✅ We will have an initial one to one where we set your starting habit together.
✅ You will get one habit to add in every 2 days (habit stacking). Habits which you can do even on your busiest, most stressful day..or even throughout Christmas with social events and purple Quality Street 😉
✅ It’s the first Christmas back since lockdowns..parties, social events, and purple Quality Street (THE BEST) are back. But you just can’t beat that sense of achievement, fitness, healthy habits, feeling of being more in control , more energy, and better sleep that come with small habits that you can do even throughout this Christmas period.
They’re so simple on paper.
And so so effective.
Unfortunately, not many of us (me included) do them often enough.
To help with this snacking
Putting off exercise
The day after each habit, we reflect and go over what worked well and what didn’t.
✅ I will be sharing a habit tracker you can print and post to me each day to keep you accountable.
If you’d like to have a chat just send me a message and we can arrange time.
I had a question yesterday about whether it is too late to join our Pre Christmas Fit Habit Challenge
Specifically for women 40+ and 50+ who pretty much know what to do but want the plan and accountability to DO IT…
All whilst still enjoying meals out and social events..
(as we travel up to Nottingham with the Fruci Fit team today for a nutrition conference all about binge eating and strategies to help with this, rapid fat loss, intuitive eating, and the latest research on body image )
It is not too late…
This is about making small SUSTAINABLE habits, which you could do on your busiest most stressful day.
Habits which are so simple and easy…
Yet surprisingly WORK…
Giving you a headstart for January
And leaving you feeling better for when Santa comes down the chimney…
And speaking of feeling better..
If you want to feel better?
Act based on on how you want to feel rather than how you currently feel.✅
Acting based on how you currently feel is leaving everything to chance… ❓
Because you won’t always “feel like doing it”….
Just remember, stressing about why you’re “not feeling like doing it” is taking your energy away …
Rather than “why do I not feel like doing it?”
“What could I do?”
Just likes these ladies have here:
Small habits, compound effect
Just reply with ‘Christmas Fit’ and I will get you the details
I wanted to sharing something with you today which might just be the secrets to getting results long term:
“On a scale of 1-10, how confident are you sticking to the plan?”
Why am I sharing this?
Well, is this the secret?
Creating a plan where you are 10/10 for how confident you are that you can stick to it, might just be the key..
1- Most people (no matter where you live) gain weight in the holiday season
2- Most people do not have a plan…
3- Most people don’t believe they can reach their goals (probably because they gained more weight during the holidays and now have more to lose so feel disheartened even after losing 7lbs in a week on a detox diet in January…)
4- Most people don’t take action (maybe because it is too hard or not the ‘perfect’ moment)
And speaking of this, I had a chat with one of the ladies on our Pre Christmas Habit Challenge
(reply with ‘Christmas and I will get you the details to start next week)
And she mentioned that she thinks it will be hard during this time of the year..
So asked ‘how come?’
And her response was interesting:
She felt she had to have a pudding on the meals out
(not necessarily because she wanted one but because everyone else was having one)
“It is ‘paid for’ already so I may as well have it”
“don’t want to be boring”
^^^ ever had that?
Isn’t it interesting that there is almost ‘health and fitness shaming’?
And the thing is, I am not saying do not eat out and enjoy yourself.
What I am saying is make the choice that makes you happy.
And I mean makes YOU happy (not someone else).
So take home today:
Make a clear, simple plan…
Here are some examples I set with some of the ladies this past week:
“I will have pudding when I eat out at peoples houses rather than restaurants”
“I will only drink when I am out or have guests (max 3 times a week) as when I drink I feel rubbish the next day”
And just get started.
Picture what might be different come January…
That sense of achievement …
The feeling of being in control of your food again.
There is nothing more rewarding than doing what you said you would do…
Just make sure you are 10/ 10 confident you can do it (no matter how small)
