Did you know that most people set resolutions with no real thought of completing them?
The Today Show reports that learning a new habit takes, on average, 66 days for the behavior to feel automatic. The actual time it takes to form that habit varies based on the person, the behavior and the circumstances. I want your habits to lead to good results by taking small steps that lead to big results. Developing a daily routine is key. Getting Lean in 2016 is a 60 day program that will help you to achieve the results you are looking for. Over the next 60 days we will learn how to change our eating habits, understand what clean eating is and how to fuel your body for energy and not for comfort.
Let’s learn how to control cravings, and instead of reaching for sodas and alcohol, we will drink Shakeology. Shakeology is packed with nutrients and vitamins that will give you the boost you need to get healthy from the inside out!
I know it has helped my skin, hair, and nails along with my digestive system. The pre and post probiotics and digestive enzymes are awesome!
My mission is to help other women just like you truly change their lives with health and fitness.
For this first month of 2016, we’ve got a challenge for you—it’s time to create a new healthy lifestyle habit!
Whether your aim is to get maintain your weight, lose some weight, or tone up this year there are a few things that you need to do.
1. Start with your intentions. What do you intend to achieve by the end of the year. Yep we’re looking at this as if the year has ended and what we achieved. Now let’s reverse engineer that thought. .
2. Identify a goal. Dr. Stephen Covey writes that an effective person begins with the end in mind. Goal setting has become so cliché just like resolutions. People set them and that’s it. You know what you want to achieve, what steps do you need to take to get there? How long is it going to take? Remember it takes 66 days to create a habit .
2. Identify short term goals and complete it before moving on to Create the next one. a small habit toward achieving your goal. Set a goal with a date attached to it. Identify short term and long term goals 60-90 day goals, 91-120 day goals and so on. Breaking your goals into chunks will lead to success rather than one big goal. So to say I’m eating clean on January 4th, you may want to pick one food or food group to replace and then add another next month or once you have mastered that one.
Let’s say you want to avoid eating out and use the money you save to buy a new iPad. Come up with a simple and repeatable way to prepare for meals so you don’t hit the drive-thru line. Prepare your lunches for the week on Sunday evening. Make a list of the dinner ingredients you need before going to the grocery store. Eat leftovers every Tuesday and Thursday. Find what works for you. Put your stamp on your routine.
3. Be A Regular Person ~ Reward yourself. Here’s the fun part! Figure out a reward for sticking to your habit. If you avoid restaurants every day for a week, put that money you would have spent in a savings jar. If you worked out every day put up the daily cost of a gym membership so you can treat yourself to a piece of workout equipment, or clothing. Small rewards keep you excited about the progress you’re making.
As you succeed with your new January habits, share them with us. Tag us in your Facebook and Twitter posts with the hashtag #itsyourbodyownnit so we can celebrate your success! Make sure to also challenge your family and friends, invite them to join the challenge group.

Each participant will be required to replace 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the 8 weeks. My goal is to teach you how to make clean eating a lifestyle change vs a crash diet.
