Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 6 steps to begin your journey to Live Lean.
Happy New Year and welcome to 2015. First off, if I haven’t said it before, let me say it again, it’s an absolute honor that you have put your trust in me as the leader of the Live Lean Nation. So thank you.
Now if you’ve been a long time subscriber, you know the major thing that separates us Live Leaners from all the rest, is that we live this lean lifestyle, 365 days a year.
No off-seasons, no bulking, and no cutting. It’s lean gains physically and emotionally all year round.
However if you’re a new subscriber, it’s my duty to help lead you to the Live Lean promise land. That means teaching you how to make ongoing, sustainable lifestyle changes, starting today, so we can create new habits and make this your best January ever, and keep that momentum going FOREVER!
Since you’re subscribed to this channel, I know your health is important to you.
But I want you to take it one step further. I want you to make your health a priority this year.
This time of year, we’re bombarded with advice on writing out our goals for the key areas of our life: career, relationship, financial, and so on. However, this can be overwhelming. For this year, I want you to pick just 2 areas of your life and make it a priority. One of those areas needs to be your health. Then pick another area that would have the most impact on the quality of your life. As the saying goes, when you chase 8 rabbits, you’ll end up with none. This is your year of focus.
To begin your journey to Live Lean, change one behavior at a time. If you don’t currently workout, make the decision today to invest in a workout program that is suited to your fitness level, and stick to the workout schedule.
Going from 0 hours of exercise a week, to 2-hour daily sessions is crazy.
If you’re new, commit to 3 x 45 minute workouts a week. But please don’t just walk into the gym empty handed. Invest in a workout program, hire a trainer, or workout with a friend. The investment and accountability is priceless.
You can continuosly read all about the best workouts, you can dream about working out in your sleep, but without putting in the physical work, nothing will happen for you.
Stop the analysis paralysis over the best diet or the best workout program.
Make this the year of continuously doing that one key behavior that we talked about in step #2.
Things that get measured, improve. If your one new key behavior is working out, keep a workout journal. If it’s diet related, keep a food journal.
As mentioned earlier, make a workout pact with a friend. Join a bootcamp. Invest in a workout program. Hire a trainer. Surround yourself with like-minded people like on our Facebook Page and our TeamLiveLean.com inner circle site.
It’s inevitable, your will power will drop throughout the year, but if you’re accountable to someone, it makes a big difference.
I made this mistake early on during my journey to Live Lean. I was all business and no fun. Big mistake. This potentially creates negative relationships with people and bad relationships with food and exercise.
Depending on your goals, decide to take one day as your “fun day” or active entertainment. Enjoy a treat meal or treat day once a week.
Living Lean is not about perfection, it’s about progress.
and make 2015 your year to Live Lean.
Bottom line. Decide to focus on your health as your one major priority this year. Pick just one key behavior change that will drastically improve your priority (your health) and commit to it.
…or on my Facebook Page, commit to action right now, by telling me that one key behavior change so I know you’re ready to be a Live Leaner.
