Crush your health goals in 2018 with our free 5 day online challenge

2018 is full of possibilities ….

Now you have set health goals or resolutions before, full of enthusiasm and plans on how to achieve them but the life happens and before you know it’s 3, 4 months down the line and you have long forgotten your health goals. you ask yourself, what happened?

I bet they were written down and if you are anything like me in the past, I just never looked at them again.

There are many reasons why people don’t achieve their goals, here are 3 reasons why

We try to do too much

Weight loss, emotional eating, stress eating, Crush your health goals in 2018 with our free 5 day online challenge

We often take on too much and can feel overwhelmed

We get all excited and set these really great goals for ourselves, but we get overwhelmed with all the ways in which we want to implement our goals. We keep running from one strategy to the next. from my experience I have learned that instead of taking on many goals and not achieving any of them why not set just one and focus on only that one. Once you have achieved this goal you can move on to the next

We don’t have a plan

We know what we want and we have written down our resolution, but there is just no plan on how to get there or maybe we don’t know what the plan should be. I have found that making a detailed road map of how to get to my goal broken down into daily action steps is very helpful. It also helps me to feel good on a daily basis knowing that I have taken one step closer to my goal.

We don’t get help, we totally try and do things on our own

Making changes to your health can be overwhelming and without the support and motivation from friend and family we often tend to lose momentum and eventually lose motivation. Recruit a friend or family member to join you on your quest or join a community with similar goals.

It is because of these reasons that I have decided to put together a free 5 day online challenge where we are going to set goals together, create a community that will support each other in our journey to achieve our goals. and not only will we achieve our goals we will crush them 🙂

So if you are ready to make some changes to your health and you are looking for like minded people then this is the place for you.

If you want to make changes to your lifestyle but you lack motivation or don’t know to maintain your motivation then this challenge will steer you in the right direction and I will be there to help you every step of the way
I invite you to join our free Crush your health goals challenge where I will help you get one step closer to your goals

The challenge starts on 8 January 2018.
