Chances are youโ€™re not going to have any massive gains or weight drops while traveling, so aim to keep everything at status quo. If you can get in a workout, great, if not, itโ€™s not the end of the world. If youโ€™re currently eating 3-5 meals a day, maybe take it back to 3 square meals while traveling.โฃ

Self Doubt

So youโ€™ve decided to level up and make better decisions for yourself.โฃ..
โฃ
Thereโ€™s going to be resistance along the way.โฃ
โฃ
Youโ€™ll be tested and youโ€™ll question why youโ€™re making these changes as they add more work to your already busy schedule.โฃ
โฃ
Youโ€™ll feel like your life got harder because youโ€™ve decided to follow this new path, but you have to keep pushing past the doubt.โฃ
โฃ
Donโ€™t let your doubt win and make you give up all the things that make you feel your best.โฃ

What is a NSV?

Itโ€™s like a NFT, except not at all.โฃ NSV stands for non-scale victory.

Because the scale isnโ€™t your only measure of progress.

Wins like, better sleep, hunger, digestion, recovery, energy, stress, habits, routines, etc. all add up! I ask my clients about their biofeedback markers every week, because those NSVs matter!โฃ
โฃ
Which form of progress is more important to you?โฃ
โฃYour clothes fitting better, lifting more weight, having more energy, with the scale staying the same?โฃ OR have the scale decrease by 5 lbs while having no energy, high stress, terrible sleep, extreme hunger, and wrecked digestion?โฃ
โฃ
If you opted for the second option, then the Warrior Program might not be for you.โฃ
โฃ

If youโ€™re ready to start stacking NSVs send me a message and weโ€™ll talk!

Find Your Fire

If itโ€™s not a hell yes, then itโ€™s a noโ€ฆโฃ
โฃ

If you force yourself into a training style you hate, youโ€™ll probably drop out in a few weeks.โฃ
โฃ
Plain and simple, you wonโ€™t do it long term unless you like it.โฃ
โฃ
Iโ€™ve done running, spin classes, yoga, Zumba, IM sports, CrossFit, and even Pure Barre. While I enjoyed all of them, at the end of the day, my heart is fueled by lifting weights.โฃ
โฃ
I love lifting so I stick to it because I crave it. But I had to explore all those types of training first in order to find the style I love most!โฃ
โฃ
I donโ€™t care if itโ€™s jazzercise or water aerobics, find your fire and let it fuel you.โฃ

How to Know if Your Plan is Working

Results happen over time, not overnight- work hard, stay consistent, and be patient… you got this!

Measure your progress often, but recognize that fluctuations will happen.

Donโ€™t depend on the scale alone. Monitor your performance during training too!

Use the fit of your clothes or progress pictures to keep you going in the right direction.

Most importantly, pay attention to how you feel. Sleep, stress, digestion, these are all forms of feedback!

If your mind isnโ€™t right, then youโ€™re less likely to be kind to yourself. Itโ€™s easy to get down on ourselves but something Iโ€™ve always used is โ€œIf I wouldnโ€™t say these things to another human, then why would I say them to myself?โ€ #positiveselftalkโฃ

We may get down on ourselves thinking we didnโ€™t push hard enough, didnโ€™t give it our all, or had a โ€œcrappy workoutโ€ but those could be the result of too little sleep, not enough nutrition, crappy nutrition, or even dehydration.โฃ

Are you set up for consistent success?โฃ
Are you taking care of your mind and body together?โฃ

I use the same app as my clients to keep me focused on my training and stick to a plan. Plus, I don’t want to be “thinking” that early in the morning.

Working out in the morning will boost your energy throughout the entire day, so tap into that and make the most of it!โฃ

Adherence

You can have the BEST diet and training plan, but if you donโ€™t follow it, it will do nothing for you.

The more extreme your plan is, the less likely that youโ€™ll sustain it long term. Go for the realistic option even if it takes a little longer.

Then stick to that plan long enough so that eating healthy meals & doing workouts becomes routine!

Take away the feeling of needing to be ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ง๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ต and focus on being ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ.โฃ
โฃ
As a coach, I create programs that look great on paper, but I know full and well that life comes first and we merge the two the best we can.
โฃ
If your plan isn’t working on paper then it’s not reasonable and you need to shift things.โฃ
โฃ
I would rather you nail a program that is realistic than have a โ€œperfect planโ€ that you can’t stick to.โฃ
