Planning for Your Goals

I hope you had a great weekend! And if you are a mother, either to a human or fur baby, I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day as well 🙂

We had a great weekend. It rained all weekend, but because of that we got a lot of things done inside the house.

I also checked in with all of the busy moms I work with, something I do every weekend so that they know what they have to do to get ready for the week ahead with meal prep and/or training and to make sure they are on the right track to meeting their goals.

In simple terms….plan!

See I believe the quote above.

If you have a goal but don’t make a plan to reach that goal, it’s simply a wish.

And as simple as it sounds to make and keep a plan, it’s not always that simple.

One busy mom in particular is having a bit of a hard time planning her week and getting her meal prep and training in.

It’s not her fault, she’s not being lazy, actually very far from that. See she is a new mom, a wife, has a full-time job that she just went back to and wants to get back to her pre-baby body.

That’s a lot for 1 person.

But it seems that every time she plans out her week, something comes up and pushes everything aside. Mostly being her training and meal prep.

So this weekend we talked about her schedule and if she could pick 2 days, yes only 2 right now, that she could train and meal prep, what 2 days would that be?

She felt that M-F were out of the question right now. It’s just not in the cards. I agreed with her. I mean why set a plan to work out Mondays and Wednesdays, as an example, if you know it’s not going to work and you are just setting yourself up for failure and becoming upset.

So we decided that the weekends are her best bet for not only training but meal prep. Then as the week goes on, IF and only IF she has time, she will get a third training session in or a nice walk.

That is her plan for this week. She will train and meal prep over the weekend and if she can, get in another training session or walk.

Will that be the plan always?

Nope.

Next week might change completely. It all depends on if this plan works and if her schedule changes or not. But we know for this week, this is what the plan is.

This is just one of the pieces of the fat loss puzzle I give the busy moms I work with. We come up with a plan for them, each busy mom is different, and then I keep them accountable to that plan. If the plan doesn’t work or stops working, we adjust until we find what does work.

Then we keep chugging along, adjusting as needed, until they hit their goal.

So what is your plan for hitting your goals? I’d love to hear it!

Have a great day!

What Every Woman’s Goal Should Be…

Happy Thursday!!

I hope you are having a great week!

Mine has been pretty great but P (my daughter) woke up with a slight fever and cough. So I gave her some Motrin and she seemed to feel fine. Fever gone and she was running around. There was no way I was keeping her home LOL. Now I am so praying I don’t get a call from the school nurse.

The other day I was talking to one fo the busy moms I work with and she was telling me that for the first time in a really long time she felt good about herself.

Not only did she feel good about herself, but she feels very confident in her own skin.

So of course I told her how proud I am of her for not only feeling that way, but actually saying it out loud. Because sadly not many women will shout it from the rooftops that they feel good about themselves. Which I think they should every single day!

See I know how she and many other women feel or have felt when they didn’t feel comfortable in their own skin.

I didn’t want to go anywhere.

I didn’t want to wear any clothes that were too tight, or too tight for my liking.

And I didn’t want to feel like that.

I wanted to be and stay confident in my own skin!!

Or as the quote above says….I want to be OBSESSED with feeling confident in my own skin.

And that is what I did.

Instead of looking at the negatives I had, such as the scale being higher than I would like or the clothes being a little too tight than I would like or even seeing some extra around my belly, I didn’t let that mess with my obsession of being comfortable in my own skin.

When all of that happened, I decided to love myself and work on being a HEALTHIER me, not just a SMALLER or LEANER me.

When I switched my mindset, the whole game changed and I was not only feeling better and I was reaching my goals faster.

It’s crazy what a positive mindset can do for a person.

And that is exactly what happened with the busy mom I spoke about above. She decided to change her focus to becoming healthier which in turn made her thoughts more positive, her results come faster and her thoughts about herself become more positive.

I love it when this all happens because that is where the magic is.

This is one of many pieces of the puzzle that is weight loss that I coach in my Train Like A Girl Sweatpants to Skinny Jeans solution.
