Let's recap what we've already accomplished, then make a plan for next week.
We're wrapping up the first week of your fitness and health reset.
How you doing?
Let's take a minute to step back and look at what we went through this week. Making sure you haven't missed a step and talk a little bit about what's going to happen next week.
So week one, the first thing we asked you to do was to listen to the podcast, seven keys to unlock a long fit healthy, energetic, and happy life. If you haven't done that already, please take a little bit of time to do that. It kind of gives you the whole overview of the entire program. If you can't find it, let me know. I'll send you the link, not a problem, more than happy to help.
After you reviewed that we asked you to start doing a daily class and/or movement.
We offered you a free 30 days at RiversZen's fitness classes. Hopefully you took advantage of that and hopefully you're using them. Please don't dismiss this program because it's free. I think a lot of people, they, they say, oh my gosh, it's free. It can't be worth anything.
I guarantee it. This program, we have charged hundreds of dollars and had people go through it and be just as happy as can be. So don't let that slow you down. Make sure you're taking advantage of the free classes, if you're not already a member and sign up. A lot of our training is in RiversZen Fitness.
Number two, we asked you to take long, slow, deep breaths and be more focused on breathing, knowing that you know how to breathe. And just kind of getting that going. We're going to cover more on that next week.
Number three, we asked you to start cleaning up your eating, start paying attention to your eating, to kind of eliminate processed foods and refined sugar. If you can't eliminate at least start pulling back a little bit, trying to eat whole foods.
Number four, we talked about discovering your compelling reasons. Those bottom line reasons... not I want to lose weight because I want to lose the weight is not a good reason. Now, digging down for those reasons. Like I want to travel. I want to have fun with my grandkids, my great grandkids. I want to enjoy life. I want to be able to take walks. I want to go, go to the beach, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. So hopefully you've dug down, discovered your own compelling reasons.
Then with those reasons you can set your passionate goals. Then you go, I want to lose weight because I want to see my grandson get married. Whatever your reason is, that was one of mine. So get those passionate goals set, and sometimes it helps to share those goals with somebody. So if you'd like to post them in the Facebook group or send them to one of us and we'd be more than happy to agree to those. I believe it's the Bible that talks about, if any two people agree on the same thing, mountains can be moved.
I know that's a bastardization of the quote, but you get the idea and I do believe that's true.
Now every day, Kim has been sending you a journal prompt. It's just a quick idea. Every single day to put in your journal. Journaling is awesome. Journaling is awesome.
As part of that, we talked about creating your future diary. Be sure to check that our, it's very powerful.
Yesterday. We sent out a reminder of YOU CAN DO THIS. I told you Betsy's story and how she persevered and just was so resilient. She refused to give up and she's living the life of her dreams today in her early seventies.
And then with assessments, we made a wide variety of assessments available to you. Set yourself a baseline. If you haven't done it by now, let's get that first week baseline set. And then the next week, I'm going to recommend that you check and see what progress you've made.
I think that's pretty simple, we gave you a lot of stuff for the first week, and I know, I know you're doing well.
If you're not just dive right back in, you can even be a day or two behind, or you can catch up. Most of this stuff could be done in a day or two.
Tomorrow, I always end every week with a 10 to 20 minute reflection meditation because stress reduction is such a huge part of this.
Then next week, we're going to start off going a little bit more depth into breath and hydration, and then digging into creating your customized eating plan.
I think next week is going to be a very exciting week. So be sure put it on the calendar, put everything on the calendar. Be sure you set a time every single day to listen to that day's two podcasts, very short from Kim. I mean, it's almost embarrassing. She gets her message across in 20, 30 seconds. And my little intro outro is sometimes longer than her message, but that's okay. That's okay. I think it's about 10 seconds. If you just fast forward 10 seconds, you can start right into the message and miss my little welcome message.
So that's it really proud of you! I hope you're proud of yourself. That's kind of a wrap of week one.
So until tomorrow move well, stay healthy, be happy, live with passion. And hopefully your purpose is to reset your fitness and health.
