Imagine if you could codify your health and fitness.
Certain inputs go in and a predictable outcome comes out. It’s repeatable and works every time.
It’s similar to what you’ve already created in other areas of your life. Think about your family dynamic. I’d be willing to bet that there are certain rituals, routines, and rules that you follow on a daily and weekly basis.
For example, you may be the one who gets your kids ready for school each morning. You may be the one to pack lunches. You may be the one who gets them on the bus or even drives them in. You may have family dinner each night. You may have a family game night each week or scheduled times when you go to the movies together.
I know for my family, I do most of the cooking but Kristina does most of the driving to and from school and practices. We have breakfast together almost daily, and usually, Sunday nights are family movie nights. My son and I have a no-holds-barred wrestling match nightly (one or both of the girls often join in – usually from the top rope).
The rituals, routines, and rules that you’ve created for your family create a certain outcome. You feel more connected. It gives you a sense of purpose. It creates a higher level of joy and fulfillment.
You know what to put into it and you know what you’re getting out of it. The same can be said about your career or business. The inputs are very clear when you get to work each day and the outcome is a product of those inputs.
Imagine if you could do the same thing for your health and fitness. How much mental stress and energy would be removed from your plate if you simply knew exactly what rituals, routines, and rules to establish for yourself so you achieved the physical outcome you desire?
Beyond just being more fit or loving what you see in the mirror, it would bring you more joy, purpose, and fulfillment. Just like your family does.
I’m a believer that all pillars and values of our lives operate the same way. If we know the inputs that deliver the outputs we desire, then we can create an operating system around that. Because once it becomes automatic, you’ve got a ton of mental bandwidth to prioritize the people and things that bring you the most joy.
If we’re not loving the process, then what’s the point of exhausting so much energy on something? That’s not to say it’s always easy. In fact, when has anything worth pursuing ever been easy?
However, when we know what it means to us, it always becomes worth it.
So the question you might be asking is…
How do I codify my health and fitness? How do I know what rituals, routines, and rules to create? What inputs will yield the outcome I desire?
Great questions. The answer that no one wants to hear is… It depends. Because your goals, lifestyle, and values are unique to you. Just like your family dynamic, relationships, and career are all unique to you as well.
I’m not here to tell you what works for someone else. I’m here to help you figure out what works best for you.
What I do know is that you’ve probably tried a bunch of stuff in the past. Random diets, challenges, and other methods to lose weight. You’ve probably oscillated between extreme measures and not prioritizing your health at all.
You may even be experiencing fatigue, a lack of confidence in what you see in the mirror, and a desire to set a better example for your kids.
The purpose is there. We just need the protocol to match.
Like anything we want to achieve, we cannot get started without a baseline. We use data to establish a baseline which gives us our point A. The inputs would be a random guess if we didn’t know our starting point.
More specifically, I’m talking about objective data like weight, calorie intake, movement, sleep, etc. And subjective data like mood, energy, hunger, cravings, digestion, libido, etc. We also look at lifestyle data like food preferences, stress tolerance, readiness to change, commitment level, and personal responsibilities.
Now we have our point A.
From there, we begin to create the rituals, routines, and rules around eating the right things for YOU, along with the proper exercise routine that makes sense for what you want to accomplish and what you can realistically adhere to. Not only is this the phase where you begin to codify your success but it also is a huge driver in supporting internal health.
As we solidify your foundation for success, we can push the gas pedal on fat loss and body composition changes. You’ll notice progress in the first phase but this is the part where your body is ready to respond more efficiently. Not only will you be proud of what you see in the mirror, but you’ll also be proud of the way you’re doing it.
It’ll be sustainable and an example that those you love the most can model. Finally, we implement our unique Nutrition Seasons™ approach to accommodate for the natural phases of work, life, and family. For example, when things get really busy with work or in your personal life, it may be the time to pursue maintenance. When things ease up we can go through a season of body composition improvements or muscle building.
You’ll know exactly what inputs will create the outcomes you desire. And you’ll be able to rinse and repeat that process for the rest of your life. We call that the shift from restrictive behaviors to health freedom.
If you’re interested in knowing a little bit more about how this all works, the next step is simple.
Just shoot me a message. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
