Okie doke…it’s time to stay accountable!!!

A 4-month assessment of my 22-month Nutrition & Fitness Goal

As some of you are aware, back in March of this year, I embarked on a 22-month Nutrition & Fitness goal.

Of course, we all know that staying accountable is one of the not-so-secret super powers of all Superhumans, so I’m going to practice what I preach and share a quick update with you here. Especially since you promised to hold me accountable!

My goals for the 22 Months are as follows:

My 22-Month Back Goals!
  1. Eliminate all remaining processed foods from my diet.
  2. Permanently transform my mindset and create a new baseline lifestyle of ongoing health for longevity.
  3. Upgrade my life patterns in the areas of physical fitness and nutrition to “consistency over time” versus only very short-term sprints.
  4. Develop long-term integrity with myself in the arena of nutrition. (I am usually super healthy, but with crazy “cheat streaks”. Makes no sense whatsoever to my long-term life goals!)
  5. Shed roughly 10 – 15% body fat and maintain my new physique as an ongoing lifestyle versus a lifelong roller coaster of weight loss and gain.
  6. Master full pull-ups.
  7. Use an 18-month body-building program as my tool for gaining strength and a community platform to help me increase my knowledge, troubleshoot any challenges, and help me remain accountable to myself overall.

I’ve now completed four months (131 days to be exact), so I figured it’s a good time to stop and assess my progress thus far.

Here’s my daily action plan:

Making a plan and sticking to it is part of staying accountable

Should I be discouraged?

With all of this time and energy invested, it’s tempting to become discouraged with my lack of visual progress over a four-month time-period, but I keep my eye on a few key points:

Where do I go from here?

Next week, I begin Phase 2 of the Body-Building Program, so I’m excited to step it up a notch, now that I’ve got the basic foundation in place.

With the exception of slow visual results, I’m actually very happy with my progress.

So…..last but certainly not least…

Why on earth am I sharing all of this with you?

Well, firstly, it’s a great exercise for me to stay accountable!  But much more importantly, I hope it will be a source of encouragement for you.

Insights worth sharing:

Does YOUR daily schedule reflect your main priorities, the goals you’re most passionate about, and the outcome you want to create?! And, will you stay accountable?

Wish me luck in Phase 2, and I’ll keep you posted on my progress!

All my love,

Chaya
