Setting New Year's Goals is NOT Stupid

Alright, we are rolling up on New Year's. And despite what the Grinches say, there is NOTHING WRONG with making NY Year's Resolutions. In fact, they ROCK!

And when you make them public and join something like, you'll get social support, accountability, a deadline, and an incentive. The four secrets to success.

That's why Resolutions Rock!

Make sure to set process goals (ie. shopping for healthy foods twice a week, exercising 4 days per week), etc. that will get you closer to your outcome goals (wearing the bikini again). Or checking your bank account each day (process goal) in order to get out of debt.

Process goals + Action + Accountability + Support = SUCCESS. 

Keep up the great work!

And watch our free nutrition (from Isabel) and workout video content (from me) here once you join the $100,000 Transformation Contest Party!

This also will clear up the cardio confusion (avoid the "cardio confessional!)

My training today: Hang Clean, Deadlift, Military Press, and Good Mornings.

Focus on replacing your bad habits and thought patterns, one-by-one, over time, with good habits and thought patterns. One step at a time, done over time, leads to powerful changes in your life.

For me, we're cruising on up on 124 hours (5 days) of perfect nutrition since that chocolate covered almond feast on Christmas day - LOL. No Coke Zero either! Had a nasty habit of drinking a couple per week.

Here's my 2013 Daily Diet (updated)

Today's Additional Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Have the uncomfortable conversation today. Even if it's with yourself. Clear the air. Establish an action plan. Make sure everyone is clear on what changes need to be made. Set deadlines. Implement. And follow-up. That is how we will change and make 2013 the best year ever.
