Good Morning and Happy Friday!!
Oats, Java and a shake and I am headed out the door to the gym for a circuit before seeing Mrs Superstar Traci for our 30 minute circuit workout and then packing my bags to head up to LA for the weekend. Traci has been digging deep and working to get back into the best shape of her life aiming for that “FABULOUSLY FIT AT 40“. With all the support and tools, we all know you can do it Traci, mind over matter! Excited to watch your journey unfold… one year baby, we’ve got this! That is the best way to strive for those long term results! I am so proud of Traci for accepting the journey of taking it one day at a time, building her dream home with a solid foundation!
So many people want results YESTERDAY, yet they start striving for them TOMORROW! How does that work? Well, it doesn’t and it only leads you towards short term possible weight loss success goals, if that. If losing weight is your goal and your only goal, you can go for a crash diet or hey, have you heard of the Cabbage Soup Diet, for strictly weight loss and to see those number drop, this may be fore you…
The Cabbage Soup Diet plan promises a 10-pound weight loss in one week! Check this out!!
The 7-day Cabbage Soup Diet plan promises all you can eat — as long as you stick to the small list of allowed foods on alternate days, along with two daily bowls of fat-free cabbage soup. Other specific foods that must be eaten including fruit, vegetables, skim milk, and meat. Dieters are also advised to drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol.
Here’s a sample Cabbage Soup Diet plan:
Day 1: Cabbage soup and all the fruit you want except bananas. Drink unsweetened tea, black coffee, cranberry juice, or water.
Day 2: Cabbage soup, all the low-calorie vegetables you want (except beans, peas, or corn), and a baked potato with butter.
Day 3: Cabbage soup and a mixture of the above fruit and vegetables.
Day 4: Cabbage soup, up to eight bananas, and two glasses of skim milk.
Day 5: Cabbage soup, up to 20 ounces of beef, chicken or fish, up to six fresh tomatoes, and at least 6-8 glasses of water.
Day 6: Cabbage soup, up to 3 beef steaks, and unlimited vegetables.
Day 7: Cabbage soup, up to 2 cups of brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices, and unlimited vegetables.
Okay, really…. ????!!!! I am not even going to comment on this program but the point is, there are so many ways you can go for that quick fix but they are not building LONG TERMS SUCCESS. Your goal is to build that foundation of lifelong habits, physically, mentally and emotionally! Having a realistic long term goal, allows you to make the necessary changes and take the necessary steps to build up your foundation and then anything laid upon that foundation is holding steady!
Imagine you build a house without a foundation. It may be the prettiest house in the world and you could have spent so much money on all the finest bells and whistles but guess what there is NO foundation and without that foundation, it could be a simple shake of the earth and that beautiful house is falling to the ground! Now, if you spend a little bit of extra time, building the foundation and slowly laying brick by brick, it may take a little bit longer to obtain the house of your dreams but guess what, once you get there and have the completed project, it is yours forever! From there, it is minor design tweaks and changes but your foundation is built and it was so worth the wait!!!
Imagine your success on this journey in a similar way, we are laying our bricks, each day and all these bricks we are creating our masterpiece that is going to hold
Think about it, do you want the breathtaking house without the foundation within the next few weeks or are you willing to invest into that house, even if it takes you a year to build it? The choice is yours!!!
Here we are building a foundation and offering the tools to allow you to lie one brick at a time and build upon your solid efforts towards lifelong goals! Living the lifestyle ladies, one day at a time…
Have an amazing Friday!
