Keeping ‘it’ Consistent…

Keeping ‘it’ Consistent…

We are right smack in the middle of our CPM Wired to Eat Challenge. And like all challenges do it gets me thinking about the psychology of success and winning.

It’s so funny how our human brain is wired to resist change or challenges
-We are creatures of habit. The real challenge is getting out of our comfort zone.
-If left up to us we would choose the path of least resistance.
-We all have great intentions. But being intentional is the tough part.
-Paralysis by Analysis. We OVERTHINK everything!

As the group finds their new rhythm with the challenge in full swing I’ve noticed what key factors are playing a role in those who are staying consistent and in the challenge vs. those we fade away and drop out. (Regardless if you are in the challenge or not these tips will help on the everyday person’s journey as well:-)

Consistency Tips 101:
1. Keeping it simple. Not overthinking it. Just build your plate one meal at a time, finding a Protein, Vegetable and Fat (PVF)
2. Planning in Advance. The further out you look at your day, week or month in advance the easier it is to troubleshoot and stay consistent. Especially if you schedule is going to change in the future (travel, an event, something not in the routine happens).
3. AMMAP. (As Many Meals As Possible) Just like the workout version AMRAP, when you cook, leverage the time and energy by cooking as many servings as possible.
4. Being Habitual. If you can workout, cook, eat a meal, post your results at the same time of the day you are more likely to do it. If we think less we act more.
5. Do the Best with what you Got. Mistakes will happen. The motto of the challenge is “Progress Not Perfection”. Its not about the mistakes that you make, it’s about minimizing the time you can respond and get back on the plan.
