This section is all about how to REVIEW AND ADJUST your first month and make those all important tweaks to keep the gainz (or losses) coming. Focusing on what you HAVE achieved opposed to what you HAVEN'T achieved will ensure you remain positive going forward.
HOW TO REVIEW?
When reviewing your plan it so important that you have some form of data to review. If you don't have SOME form of information then this is going to be difficult!
It all comes down to how well you have been tracking....
STEP 1 - IDENTIFY THE POSITIVE CHANGES YOU HAVE MADE
- List the positive changes you have made in the first month. Write them down, put them on the group and tell everyone!
- Repeat any measurements you have taken. Pictures, measurements, weight - anything you have been tracking. Assess the difference
As you well know - it is not all about body fat.....however we do want to see some changes in body composition. This is where weight can be a misleading metric to track.
A common thing we see with clients is a disregard of their improvements in energy, skin, sleep etc....not to mention the 4 PB's they hit that month. They say "well I have only shifted 0.5kg in a month".
Can you see that this is an incredible change in one month...with this being a very common result of following our structured plan. But they focus on the negative - which isn't even a negative! They still lost 0.5kg.
Let us know how you have got on in the GROUP or tag us on Instagram!
STEP 2 - IDENTIFY YOUR WEAK AREAS
HABITS TO WORK ON.....
THIS IS THE KEY PART TO SUSTAINABILITY
We need to BUILD HABITS. Identifying one or two weak areas and making small changes opposed to changing everything is how we move into making nutrition a lifestyle not a diet.
Sometimes you don't even need to track - you KNOW where you have gone wrong or what area needs to be tightened up.
If you are not assessing you are guessing
