Competition Training Nurture

You are amazing! We love that you set high goals, and  you push yourself!  Competing in the fitness world is a challenge that most people never have the courage to take. You are different!  You are strong and confident!  Now, as coaches, we want to challenge you to take daily steps that will move you in the direction of your dreams! Below is a list of small goals we would like to see you incorporate into your daily routine.  You will notice we have given you suggestions on how to incorporate these goals into your fitness routine.  There are 15 days listed.  This is a perfect way to start the beginning of a new month!  July has 31 days.  We challenge you to use this list the first 15 days of July. Then, work from this list to create your own daily goals for the remainder of the month.  We would love to hear how this helps you! Please share your results with your Elite Coaching Coach.

Day 1 Goal – Be Self-Driven
Coaches’ Suggestion: Keep a fitness journal.  Record notes in it (some suggestions follow), and use it to reflect on your goals and feelings.
Day 2 Goal – Focus on the health benefits of your external goals
Coaches’ Suggestion: Today choose to celebrate one thing that is healthier about you since you have started your training.  Some examples might be your blood sugar is stabilized, or your cholesterol has lowered. Congratulate yourself for achieving this level of fitness in your new journal.
Day 3 Goal – Change how you see yourself
Coaches’ Suggestion: Make a list of positive adjectives that reflect your ideal fit lifestyle, such as “energetic” & “strong”, and keep them on your fridge and in the front of your journal. Look at them often and meditate on them.
Day 4 Goal – Compare yourself to yourself, not to others
Coaches’ Suggestion: Share your tracked measurements on your EC portal with someone you trust, and allow them to hold you accountable. Keep a hand written copy of your progress in your journal.
Day 5 Goal – Don’t wait for results
Coaches’ Suggestion: Create a section in your workout log where you can write down the ways you immediately feel better after a training session – physically and emotionally.
Day 6 Goal – Focus on short-term goals
Coaches’ Suggestion: Set a specific new training or nutrition objective that aligns with your current plan. For example, hold a plank for a certain amount of time or eliminate extra bites, licks, and tastes that you take for granted.  Ask your coach if you need help with this.  Write your goal in your journal.
Day 7 Goal – Choose the right intensity
Coaches’ Suggestion: Log the sets and reps you perform each workout as well as how tired they make you feel.  Kick it up a notch when you find you’re not being challenged.
Day 8 Goal – Become adaptable
Coaches’ Suggestion: Decide ahead of time how you will make up for a missed workout.  That way you have a plan is in place, and you don’t have to feel like you failed.
Day 9 Goal – Keep your rewards related to your goal
Coaches’ Suggestion: Get a new pair of running shoes after a certain amount of miles or a new song downloaded when you stay on plan.
Day 10  Goal – Create a fit environment
Coaches’ Suggestion: Put your gear by the door or in your car, and keep a change of clothes at work so that you’re always ready to workout.
Day 11 Goal – Shop at the same grocery store
Coaches’ Suggestion: You will be familiar with the store layout  making it quicker to shop and less likely to run into temptation.
Day 12 Goal – Make a list
Coaches’ Suggestion: Keep a grocery store list on the fridge, so you can add to it as you need each item.
Day 13 Goal – Schedule your workout
Coaches’ Suggestion: Get up before your family, and get your day started right with a workout.
Day 14 Goal – Be prepared
Coaches’ Suggestion: Have the kitchen stocked with healthy options at all times.  Get the junk food out, and fill the pantry with foods from the 911 food list.
Day 15 Goal – Stay consistent
Coaches’ Suggestion: Do check-ins every week whether or not you have stayed on plan.

We want you to succeed, & we are here for you!
Caring, confident & committed to you,
Kristie, Michelle, Amy, Tanya, K-Rae, & Sierra
