How To Be In Great Shape Over The Holidays – Part Two

Charge Through This Holiday Season With Your Body Incredible

In the first article of this series I wrote about the importance of planning your attack on the holiday season. While you should feel free to eat, drink and be merry, you should also stay true to yourself and your Body Incredible journey. With the right knowledge and accountability you can achieve both. How To Be In Great Shape Over The Holidays, Part One, gave you a detailed health, nutrition and lifestyle assessment to fill out for your own records. We looked at:

  • The ‘what’ and ‘why’ of your holiday goals
  • Your current weight and measurements
  • Physical and emotional energy
  • Appetite, food and cravings
  • Alcohol, smoking and party habits
  • Digestion
  • Sleep and mental focus

If you have your copy but haven’t gotten around to filling it out then get to it! In case you haven’t noticed, it’s December – if you’re serious about being in great shape this holiday season you simply must start today. Right now, This very minute.

Choosing goals that are truly important to you

Although your Body Incredible assessment only took you a few minutes to fill out, it was extremely detailed. What you’ve done by honestly considering your current shape and health is given yourself a fantastic platform to set some SMART goals. A SMART goal is:

  1. Specific (who, what, when, where, why?)
  2. Measurable (how much, how many, how will you know?)
  3. Attainable (what attitudes, abilities, skills and opportunities will help you reach your goal?)
  4. Realistic (you must be both willing and able to reach your goal. What conditions would be required in order to accomplish this goal? It’s fine to set a high goal so long as you believe you can achieve it, in fact big goals are often easier to achieve as you are more motivated)
  5. Timely/ Tangible (Timely: anchor your goal with a time frame. Tangible: can you visualize how you look and feel when you achieve your goal?)

Regardless of how motivated you are, you just can’t set goals in every area covered in your Body Incredible self-assessment. It’s not even necessary, anyway. It’s far smarter (!) to focus on just a few areas of your overall physique and health. If you make daily steps to achieving those goals it’s more than likely you’ll notice improvements in other areas. Improving the way you eat will also aid energy and mental focus. Paying attention to how much you drink and party will also impact your sleep quality. Both the way you eat and how much you drink and party will affect your digestion.

When you think about it, everything you do or don’t do has a direct impact on just about every area of your wellness.

With that in mind, you need to choose 2-3 goals that are important to you in order to be in great shape these holidays. Let’s start by being general. Here are some options, but feel free to add anything I’ve missed to this link before you mull it over:

  • A weight related goal you’d like to maintain or achieve
  • A clothing size goal you’d like to maintain or achieve
  • A specific body part you’d like to keep in check
  • How much sleep you’d like to average each week
  • How many drinks you will set as your max each week
  • How many nights out per week
  • How many indulgent meals
  • The way you’d like to feel mentally, physically and/or emotionally (this is harder to measure but I’ll get to that in a moment!)
  • How much time to relax/chill out you’d like to keep aside
  • An exercise-related goal (frequency/duration for example)
  • Goals related to how/what/when you eat

The best way to determine your 2 or 3 priority goals is to follow your gut. When you scanned the above list, which points jumped out at you? You know what I mean – the ones which caused some sort of immediate emotional reaction. Logic does not really matter here. It’s not about ‘I should’, it’s about ‘I want, I must, I will’.

What is it about your health, weight, energy, about the way you want to feel about yourself that you are 100% driven toward achieving? That you really really want to prove to yourself?

Make a note of these things.

Next, you need to Get Smart. Write down each of your goals, and underneath it note down each of your smart goal points. This is where things really become real – because in recording the details of each goal you will be forced to realize that you are actually capable of achieving, that success is not out of reach. Here’s an example of how to make your goal smart:

Goal: Stay in control of my weight over Christmas

Specific. I want to not only maintain my current weight but even lose a little over the December/January period. I want to do this so I can continue to feel confident and happy with my body, my health, and what I’ve achieved this year.

Measurable. Drop one ‘belt-notch’ and feel my jeans loosen up around my bum by mid-January. Lose 2kg on the scales (around 4-5 pounds)

Attainable. I am positive-minded about my ability to manage my weight over Christmas. I don’t believe that holiday weight-gain is ‘just something that happens’. I plan to keep up my current level of exercise, and use my down-time from work to get some additional outdoor workouts in. I know that the eating and drinking side of things is the thing I need to  watch most, so I’m going to prepare a food calendar at the start of each week, taking into account any events or nights out. I know I may not stick to the calendar 100% but at least it will give me some guidance. I also plan to record my eating in a food diary each day. This will keep me accountable. I’m going to enlist the support of  a friend who I know is also serious about staying in shape over Christmas – I know I’ll need to surround myself with some like-minded people.

Realistic. It’s a challenging goal to set at this time of year, but I’m determined to achieve it, and – with the right planning I believe I can achieve it. I’m definitely determined! Success is a habit, not a choice.

Timely/Tangible. I’m setting myself an overall time-frame of now (!) until January 14th. From the 7th till the 14th I will be on holiday in QLD, so this makes the goal particularly challenging, but there’s nothing better than the feeling of coming back from holidays in better shape than what you left! As far as tangible – yes, I can definitely visualize how I will look and feel throughout this holiday season. I’m fortunate in that I’m not far from my goal now, and I’ve been there recently, so I know exactly how much I love that feeling of being in MY ideal shape. If you are finding it hard to create a mental image of your goal, try writing down exactly how you’d like to look and feel. Be as specific as possible and persevere until you’ve filled at least half a page – words will begin to flow once you allow them to do so.

Stay Ahead Of The Rest This By Planning Your Body Incredible Success This Christmas!

Don’t wait till tonight or tomorrow or next week to do this. You have to start right now, this very minute – just think how proud of yourself you’ll be come Christmas day when you know you’ve truly earned the right to sit back and indulge. It’s still not too late to plan for a Body Incredible this Christmas – wouldn’t that be the greatest gift of all?

In Part 3 of this series I’ll be talking about How To Fit In Quality Exercise Throughout The Holiday Season, and I’ll also explain why I didn’t include exercise in the initial assessment. Hint: it’s not because I don’t think exercise is important!

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.

All in on madness.
All in on crazy.
All in on chaos.
All in on the TRUE epic awesome ridiculousness and too much-ness of YOU.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
