Day 11 of our Paleo Challenge

sit-up-1

Welcome to Day 11 of your 30 day Paleo Challenge. Today January 14th you will record your points from 1/13/16 by Midnight. (As a reminder I will not except posts after Midnight)

I always learn something new from each challenge I do -  and we are only one week and a few days into this challenge and I realized I don't know all of your goals or why you wanted to join this challenge - so if you would be so kind and comment below with your goals and what you'd like to get from your 30 day journey, that would help me further support you along the way.

AND

It just so happens that I received an email today -- perfect timing -- "Three steps to achieve any goal"

Step #1 - A Defined Goal

Okay, before you say this is a "duh", know that most people never actually even get to this step.
Yup, that's right - Step #1 and most people have already quit. Are you still reading? Good, you're not most people.
The TRUTH is that most people are TOO SCARED to actually say their goals out loud.
Most people are embarrassed, or they think they'll fail, or just plain worried about looking stupid.
If you want to achieve anything, you have to be willing to SAY it and BELIEVE it out loud.
 

Step #2 – A Plan

If you're serious about achieving any goal, you need a plan, a blueprint, a method of how you plan to get there.
"Winging it", isn't gonna cut it.
Admittedly, I'm a fan of winging it. It was my mode of operation for a good 25 years of my life. I rationalized it as being "freeing" rather than what it really was - a lack of discipline.
Now don't get me wrong, there's something awesome about adventuring sometimes without a plan (one of my favorite things), but when it comes to goal completion, you MUST have a plan, a blueprint, A METHOD, for achieving exactly what you want to achieve.
No exception.
No one has ever become successful without some sort of plan.
Whether it's business, finances, or life.
Sure, people have accidentally won the lottery without planning, but they've also accidentally had kids :)
SUCCESS does not happen by accident. Getting your health back does not happen by accident.
As they say, "Failing to plan is planning to fail."
 

Step #3 – Execution & Discipline

You know what's the hardest part about this whole healthy lifestyle thing?
STICKING WITH IT!
That's why I ask anyone who is serious about it two questions:
  • How bad do you want it?
  • What are you willing to give up for your goal?
Most people DO NOT ask both questions. They simply talk about what they want without talking about what they're willing to do for the thing they want.
And lets be real...SOMETIMES IT TOUGH! It's real tough! So how do you react when it gets hard?
Remember, one day at a time. You don't have to fight the next years battle in one day. You just need to fight today's battle.
One day at a TIME
Joel from Ultimate Paleo Guide
 

I can help you finish this challenge with success, but ONLY YOU can decide to keep going when it gets tough. I can't promise it's easy, but it IS worth it. Remember - life is short. Don't let it go by wondering "what if?"

Make this life worth it. It's the only one you got.

You have a new challenge today - how many sit ups can you do in your awaking hours? Click on the link to see what deems as a counted rep, if you don't have a abmat pad no worries you can use a pillow or rolled up towel. Post your sit up reps by MIDNIGHT!! tonight JANUARY 14TH. Good Luck!
