Goal-Setting-Steps

Whats good people.

I hope you are all well.

We are now here – Summer has arrived – Hopefully some of you are into your programs by now, if not, at least you can use this information to help you with other projects. Let’s get straight into it.

Goal Setting

This should of been at the top of the list – But I wanted To give you the diet and exercise sequences first to get the ball rolling. And we kind of already know the goal here – Loose Fat/ Build muscle – But its important to discuss some of the psychology behind goal setting.

Its a like a business – A business has a mission statement of what it wants to achieve and where it wants to go – Setting Goals is no different.

Setting a goal helps you to know where you are going. It is your target destination so to speak.

So for example, if you want to achieve abs – Have a plan and know how you are going to get there. Know your meals and know the exercises you are going to execute.

If you want to loose fat, know how much fat in lbs/kg you want to loose.

If you want to gain muscle, know which program you are going to utilize.

I find the strategy/method S.M.A.R.T works a treat.

Goal Setting – Lifestyle change/ Loose Fat/ Build Muscle

Why are you setting this goal?

Had enough of looking and feeling the same (always be grateful for what you have though) and just know that you deserve better if that is what you want.

Knowing these things helps you to stay in the zone and gives you a better overall perspective on your mission statement so to speak.

Stay at it guys – You Can Do It!

What’s good folks.

How is everyone doing.

I hope you guys are staying fit and keeping healthy.

For part 1 we looked at Exercise and the important role it plays in not only Fat Loss/Muscle Building but overall health and fitness.

We also touched upon the importance of combining both Exercise and Nutrition for realistic results.

For Part 2 we are going to be focusing on Nutrition.

So firstly….

Food Preparation is Key

 

Imagine trying to follow through a 12 week nutrition plan but not actually having any food prepped or knowing what you’re going to eat.

You’ve set yourself back already and started out on a road of failure. It would be near to impossible to see through your plan.

Things would work out expensive also as it’s likely you would be spending A LOT of your money on take-aways & ready made meals.

This isn’t good as you want to be saving up your money!

Plus, a lot of ready made meals may be processed (not a good idea) and buying regular take-aways would go against the whole idea of loosing fat/building muscle anyway. Can you imagine…

So food preparation is key!

You want to write down a list of foods that you are going to be eating for the time frame of your plan. Organisation is everything. Stick this list on your fridge to help you stay in the zone!

You want a balance of:

Proteins

Carbohydrates

Fats

For example:

Proteins – Legumes/Beans/Nuts/Pulses Meat (I’ve cut down my meat intake)
Carbohydrates – Rice/Potatoes/Pasta/Yams/Sweet Potatoes/Quinoa/CousCous/Grains
Fats – Avocado – Extra Virgin Olive Oil/ Coconut Oil/ Nuts/

This will help you to stay on track for the next 12 weeks, (you can even execute this plan well over a year if you need the structure)

Now, on the weekend or when you have some free time:

Food Preparation Step By Step Plan

Step 1

Prepare and cook your meals. Make sure you use lots of seasoning to keep your food interesting. Apply variety to keep things mixed up. The moment you get bored it’s easy to fall of the bandwagon.

Step 2 – Have a tuppaware to store your food in. This allows you to take it to work with you or your place of travel without being tempted to buy some “Fast Food

Step 3 – Refrigerate or freeze the tuppawares for the following week or two (depending on how much food you cooked)

Step 4 – Heat them up and you are ready to go

Step 5 – Utilize a food thermal bag to keep them warm

You gotta ask yourself – Is The effort you put in worth the work at this stage – Hell yea!

Most Definitely

New body transformation _ A new you. Healthier – Fitter – Faster – Stronger

You look good, you feel good!

You feel good, You live a better life!

I personally don’t use a microwave myself as I’ve heard shady things about them (I will do some research and see how true this is though as I’m not 100% sure, but I thought I’d mention it anyway – I heat my food up on the stove – But please feel free to do your own research and see what you find)

You know guys…

This is a journey to be enjoyed and an opportunity for you to learn a lot about yourself. It is a time to build strength, courage and to live life a better you.

SO…

Key notes from today:

1) Food preparation is very important. It’s half the effort in loosing fat/building muscle

2) Cook ahead of time and stay prepared

3) Enjoy the journey

Hopefully you guys found this helpful.
