I was going to write about something different today
But I was listening to Steven Furtick on my way to my morning session...
and he said something that I tweeted...I share on Instagram as well so don't worry ;-)
He said "JOY IS A FOCUS, BEFORE IT'S A FEELING"
and WOW...did that hit home and dis that get the wheels turning.
For months and weeks I have been talking about THE PROCESS...
I have said The Promise is in The Process
Our Nutrition Coaching program is called THE PROCESS..
People always talk about the journey….not the destination...
and I agree...but sometimes it's hard to understand and even hard to explain for everyone to understand...
But this morning I hear it a different way
HE SAID "YOU CAN NOT CHOOSE JOY, YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE YOUR PRIORITIES"
Now I am not going to use this email to go to deep...even though I am more than willing to if you would like to have a conversation...BUT
What I will say is....YOU....YES YOU READING THIS....YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS YOU GET AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT MAKING THE PROCESS YOUR PRIORITY....oh that was good...you can tweet that ;-)
Here is what that means....
You can control, if you eat your food, drink your water, take your vitamins and workout...
You can not be happy if you lose or gain a pound...because...you can't prioritize how much you lose...
If you only base progress or results on the scale...you can't ever be happy with the outcome, because you will always think you could have lost or gained more.
If you make THE PROCESS A PRIORITY, YOU WILL SEE THE PROMISE...ohhh this is good today
You guys know we have that seminar this weekend for everyone that may want to compete or take their physiques to the next level...one of the things I say to my clients is...consistency and compliance...that is where you find results
Did you know, no one gets weighed or measured before they get on stage?
The results are not about your weight, they are about your body.
Do you know how you get those results?
You follow The Process...The Plan...day in and day out...your goals is to do what you are supposed to do every day...the scale is just a weight to check what adjustments we need to make
Now, how can someone follow a plan for so long without losing their mind, or without cheating, or any of the other things that make people fail at their diet..?
They need a plan that allows flexibility, foods that are delicious and the guidance to make the right move...and that is what I help with...
So for those of you curious, could this work for you...for those of you that keep saying I want the results, but don't want to get on stage...for any of you reading this..that want to transform the way you look...
"We will have an 8 weekRESHAPE YOUR GLUTES WORKSHOP
This program will be a workshop for 8 weeks, that is designed to completely transform your GLUTES...

Will you use the weekend to build momentum or to set yourself back?
So, let's get to the Meat and Potatoes of todays message
"So, You Are Not Getting The Results You Want?"
and I will add..."Even tough you are *trying*"
WELL MY 1st QUESTION IS WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO?
MY 2nd QUESTION IS WHAT ARE YOU BASING IT ON?
How many of the decisions you make about your eating and dieting are based about just stuff you have always heard or your feelings vs. facts or the truth
I talk to people every day...literally everyday, about their food
Some people listen to me
Some people ignore me
Some people argue with me
and I have made some observations….to many people, maybe even YOU
are just you used to saying things and doing things a certain way...and never stop to think that there might be another way.
No matter what kind of results I have helped anyone else achieve...
Some people value what they believe (even if it's not true) more than the facts or truths I want to help them with.
Let me give you and example...most people believe that in order to lose weight you need to eat "healthy" foods like salads and boiled chicken...
Most people believe bread and rice make you gain weight
Most people believe eating at night makes you gain weight...
So this week I documented a lot of my food....every meal had rice, I ate mostly red meat...and 2 or 3 of my meals every day are after 7pm ..result: I lost 3 lbs this week...I have other people eating ice cream after dinner, having wine with dinner, eating guava pastries and cheese bread....and all have lost weight this week.
Yet the same people that don't listen and keep eating the salads, avoiding rice and basically doing all the things they believe are right, have not gotten any result or worse have gained weight.
Now I am not saying you have to listen to me or that I know everything...
What I am saying is you are not getting results because YOU don't want to let go of your beliefs, that are not true to begin with.
Not all of you are ready, this email is not to try to sell you anything or try to convince you buy anything..
This email is just to try to open the possibility that maybe you start thinking about the fact that if you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten
This email is to tell you one bad meal won't mess up your results just like 1 good one won't get you any
This email is to tell you, that real results are the ones you can keep 4 ever, not the ones that go away once you stop the momentary plan
This email is to let you know that you are not getting the results you want because, You keep getting in your way.
The truth is out there, the answers are out there...if I can help you, I would love to, but if not I encourage you to seek out the right information.
Eating plans are not for a few weeks and that's it, real results take time...and they are well worth working for
I hope that helps, even if it's one of you reading this
I'm ready ready to rock and roll at THE WORKOUT today
