IF YOU TRUSTED EVERYTHING YOU READ ONLINE, YOU WOULD BELIEVE THAT:
Carbs are bad… you shouldn’t eat those
You have to work out every day
The greater the calorie deficit, the better
Lose weight by doing more cardio
Fruit is bad because it’s high in sugar
Eat only lean protein and vegetables to lose weight
No sweets, chips, or booze if you want to lose weight
How you look is more important than how you feel
The Keto Diet is the ticket to weight loss
Sound familiar? Well, it is no surprise that the internet is full of fake news.
This challenge is going to help you break down some of the perceptions you have about how to use food and mindset to look, feel, and perform better.
By the end of the 8-weeks, you will have a better foundation of knowledge about how nutrition, mindset, and lifestyle play into sustainability and personal progress.
SO, WHAT'S INVOLVED IN THE MACROS & MINDSET CHALLENGE?
On the nutrition side, we are going to be tracking daily calories and protein intake using MyFitnessPal. Every person will receive personalized targets unique to their goals.
If you have never tracked macros/calories before, DO NOT FEAR. This is an amazing learning opportunity and LOTS of support will be provided.
If you have experience with tracking food, then awesome! This is a perfect opportunity to re-calibrate your eyeballs to what an optimal quantity of food for your body looks like.
We will also be using daily accountability checks for sleep, exercise, non-exercise activity (steps), mindfulness/meditation/breathing, mobility, veggie intake, and hydration.
I have made it INSANELY EASY to complete your daily accountability. Just 30 seconds at the end of your day.
And here’s a fun fact for you… Accountability and Consistency Get Results. Period. The End.
Notice I said “consistency” and not “perfection”?
That's basically the anthem for this challenge... strategize to be consistent, not perfect.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE CHALLENGE?
An InBody body composition scan at the beginning and end of the challenge - this shows how your body composition (fat, muscle, and water) changes over a period of 8 weeks
Personalized calorie and protein targets tailored to your unique goals and for your unique body
Bi-weekly personal check-ins via Voxer, a free messaging app
Bi-weekly (that's every other week) 30-minute group Zoom calls where we discuss hot topics like nutrition, exercise, mindset, hormones, sleep, stress, and whatever else you all want to talk about!
A private Facebook group for connecting and sharing with other members participating in the challenge
An online and real-time PERSONAL challenge leaderboard that automatically tracks your progress based on your daily check-ins... the only person who sees your points is you!
A complete challenge guidebook with resources to help with food choices, tracking tips, nutritional facts, and more
Tons of recipes with options for high protein eats, nutritious carbs, one-pot meals, quick and delicious snacks, and more
Weekly “Check Your Mindset” emails to challenge your current practices and perceptions as you pursue sustainable physical change
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost for this 8-week Macros & Mindset Challenge is $197.
And believe me… you get WAY more value than what you pay for.
Just think - this could be the kickstart to a more energetic you… a more rested you… a more confident you… a stronger you.
Oh yeah… and you know those people you kinda want to beat in class WODs? This will definitely help.
IS THERE A WINNER? ARE THERE PRIZES?
While you will accumulate points daily for nutrition, hydration, sleep, mobility, mindfulness, steps, and exercise, the points are there for you to gauge your own progress.
There will not be prizes awarded for those with the most points.
The goal is to figure out what YOU need in order to be successful. It's to figure out what has the greatest impact on YOUR overall wellness and to determine how best to implement changes moving forward.
That's where the focus should be.
This challenge isn't about you are doing relative to others... it's about how you can be better than you were yesterday.
In fact, the only leaderboard is your own. Everyone has a personalized leaderboard to track their own progress over the course of the 8 weeks. You only see your own points.
