Full of juicy bits!

Whoot! So much goodness here - juicy bits to chew into haha! Let`s dig in shall we... (Carbs controlled and to 80% full of course. BTW those are the two MOST challenging habits and will likely present challenge in some way for your entire life - so embrace that and all of a sudden it`s not a challenge, just normal).

Your celebrations are REAL... I feel genuine awesomeness in each one. I must say this one lit me up: "My boyfriend is a personal trainer and he is amazed at my progress, he said NONE of his clients have achieved what I have achieved in this amount of time."

I love this kind of feedback that we are going in the right direction in Precision Nutrition by bringing our system of change management not "dieting`` to the PT community. Very simply, LE works - we know it but now you are living it and your BF is seeing it first hand.

BOREDOM & FOOD


Let me go right to the root of 80% Full and Carb challenges because I said in paragraph 1, those habits are life challenges. They get better and we evolve in our application of Carb Awesomeness & 80% FULL but they are never perfect or we never truly defeat them. It`s like an eating disorder - it doesn`t go away, we learn to manage it and embrace the essence of who we are.

Carbs and 80% FULL in time will be fluid and you will KNOW your challenges - predict them - and be armed with strategies. Sometimes we do exemplary and sometimes not so much... but in the end, we are winning the battles towards a pretty awesome war. You get me. Just keep in it, keep working on it, keep reflecting and keep aiming for `good, better, best`.

Side note: Consider coming to the LE / S2B Gathering at the end of August (Chicago area)? I will be speaking in more depth about this whole "good, better, best" concept. I call it the Spam to Super Hero continuum. You will love it and it will help you with the latter goal here (competition).

The Strategy - WAIT 5 MINUTES / GETTING TO THE ROOTS


I recommend you go to the roots of boredom, feeling meh or dissatisfied at times or areas of your life and reflect... dig deep.



Managing the MEH Factor as it relates to food choices

It may be uncomfortable but it will help you practice mindfulness not just with food, but in life. When you feel "meh" and want to go for comfort or a mindless or quick fix (temporary), rather, sit in it. FEEL it. FEEL bored. Let that feeling flourish and give life to other feelings. There are OTHER deeper, root feelings UNDER boredom or apathy. Apply the WAIT 5 MINUTE rule. In that time you must be mindful, not chose food as a friend and reflect. Do this enough times (everything takes practice) and the NEXT emotion will surface.

At the same time, come up with a concrete list of alternatives to eating (or eating stuff that you feel does not help you towards your goals) that help you better manage and overcome feelings of boredom.

Summary:

1) Be ok with feeling this and not being quick to fix / comfort
2) Sit IN those feelings for 5 minutes and over time giving life to the underlying emotions
3) Have alternatives that help you towards your goals or do not hurt the process that you can implement and chose AFTER the 5 minute reflective process.

MAINTENANCE

Well good news! We will teach you LOTS to make this worry a non-issue... just that, a worry. Guess what much of the final 6 months of LE is focused on... how to change you from the inside out and make this truly a lifestyle change and part of every fiber of your being.

"There's no going back".

That's all I will say at this time, but keep this in your back pocket. You are continually being armed with more habits. You will know what works for you. You chose. Whatever life brings you after LE, you chose it.

Now you are inspired right! I HAVE CHOICE! Nothing just happens to someone. We always have choice. And we will get you to a position to comfortably launch Next Level YOU post Lean eating. But the secret? You HAVE to give this your all and truly dig in. Do the Difficult-Difficult work... as you are. So keep doing that. Simple.

BIG VISIONS


...so all of these things along with my goals of becoming the Leanest and Fittest ME I have ever met are insanely motivating.


THAT is all you need to grasp onto right now. Thoughts become things. Visions become reality. Lean Eating doesn't just changes bodies - we change lives. If you again can dig into LE fully and completely and reap ALL the benefits, you will be able to carry that over to any area of your life, goal or initiative.



The Power of Less: Do ONE thing and do it very well. Then move on and do the NEXT thing and do it very well... repeat. Indefinitely.

This has been fantastic. Thanks for truly giving it your all. Keep doing that.

Coach K's TRANSFORMER Movie List

I was talking to client a few days ago, on my Lean Eating 2012 team (TEAM TRANSFOMERS) - she is in my Top 3 in fact. Has been since the 1s week of the program. I felt her "winnerness" and did a Grab & Go and got on a tangent about movies I felt she MUST watch!

These are transformational movies. You cannot help but be fired up and ready to take on ANY challenge after watching these movies. Also, they will remind you to believe in miracles.

MAN ON WIRE - Documentary


Blown away by this guy! Passion beyond passion.

UP - Animated (Disney)


I dare you not to cry... more than once.

IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON - Documentary (Ron Howard)


No words. Just friggen A.

HUGO


Lovely in all ways.

And yes, KongFu Panda, but my team is well aware of my love for KongFu Panda (I). If you haven't watched it yet, start there.



Action-packed, inspiring & hilarious!
THE BIG 3 of Awesomeness all rolled into one -


Make this your movie bucket list this year and I promise something will stir within you and a switch will be flipped.

Pumping Iron IS on my list... as is Arnold

Why?

Arnold was the MASTER of making his dreams reality. He was the MASTER at transforming his body through the power of the mind. He is fully of moxy and mojo. Moxy is SO rare these days, few know the meaning of the word.

Moxy:

Self possessed confidence. An attitude of fearlessness in everyday circumstances. The capacity to stand alone in favor of an unpopular opinion or course of action with a casual demeanor. The word fell out of usage as the character traits it represented both became less common and came to be viewed as unfavorable in others.


And I must say, with 10 years in policing and 15 years in coaching / training (I get to know people stuff and secrets), Arnold simply got busted. Billions of people before him and after him have been down that path - and no one knows it and may never know it. We all have a dark side.



Those with the highest highs and the lightest Lights, have the lowest lows and the darkest darks.

Arnold
Marilyn
Tiger
Clinton
Lance

The burden of greatness is great conflicts.

Arnold, I salute you - all that makes you light and the darkness that keeps you moving forward, upwards, onwards.

I have met Arnold twice. Once during a powerlifting contest in 2008. His men in black arm barred me.



Exactly one year later he was back stage with me before I entered the stage to perform my routine. I didn't care how I placed - I had just won my trophy.



I didn't care how I placed... I was back stage with Arnold 30 seconds prior.

When he enters a room, you feel the entire room shift its energy. He is very special and it has nothing to do with his biceps or his politics.

Krista, I am not in league with companions of achievement here however, this quote hit me so hard this morning in light of how my own insides have come to work... I had been viewing the darks and lows as deficiencies that are like a stubborn obstacle, and maybe they are, I have always had them and I have achieved a lot... and when I don't achieve as I intend, it can seem very dark. Thanks to LE and life work overall, I know this is not true... however lately for a short time, it has seemed so. This post, was inspired, at least for me in this line above. Thank you, you didn't know, but someone or something did... I am carrying it with me, the two, light and dark, are not only compatible, but in some, married.
Wow.

OT to Krista

Krista, I'm trying to complete the LE "Dream Warrior" assignment. My wild crazy dream? To have arms like yours. I'm going to try my hand at gaining this winter. I've received advice from my own great coach (Georgie!), but what advice re: gaining mass would you be willing to offer me - someone who is at the end of the beginning when it comes to strength building. You're such an inspiration and so badass and well, your body is amazing. (I'm not on FB, etc., and wasn't sure how best to reach you.) Thanks, Krista.

Uniquely yours...

This is paradigm shifting and uniquely yours. Of the thousands of threads and tens of thousands of posts, you find this one. It was just for you.

A book you will want to read.

The Shadow Effect.
