How To Transform Your Body In A Week

What do you do if you want to get in phenomenal shape within a week? Here’s my 7-point plan to get you in tip-top shape ASAP. Granted, it’s definitely easier to stay in great shape if you’ve already been exercising regularly and eating fairly well, but even at this time of year even the most committed Body Incredible seeker can slip up. When I need to shape up, tighten up and lift up (my energy!) as quick smart as possible I follow this format. And it really works. But no half-hearted attempts – it is, after all, only a week.

  • No Alcohol. No exceptions.
  • Start the day with a digestive kick-start. I use a high-grade magnesium supplement (I love the Isagenix IsaFlush capsules because they are such superior quality, but you can also find one at a good health food store), chased with 2 glasses of tepid water. Those who find things particularly hard to move in the morning can add some lemon to the water, and also try this yoga pose to massage and relax your colon. Start with one leg at a time, and then after doing each side (right first), pull in and hug both legs to you. Don’t forget to breathe! You should hold this for at least 10-20 seconds.

  • Sounds obvious, but GET MOVING! How often do you think ‘Oh, I’d like to exercise more, but I’m just too busy’, or ‘I only have 20 minutes to spare so it’s not worth it’? Guess what? Every minute really does count. If you’re looking to shape up quick-smart then you simply must do some exercise every day for that 7 or so day period. I’d suggest alternating the tough stuff (meaning weights, running, exercise that bre aks muscle down) with some recovery. Yoga is one good example, but even a lighter walk is okay if you did a big sweat session the previous day. When I’m really keen to tighten up, I try to squeeze in 2 sweat sessions per day – even if it is only a quick circuit for 15 minutes. See Craig Ballantyne’s Turbulance Training for ideas on fast n furious workouts.
  • Stop eating so darn much. Again, a bit obvious, but if you cut back on your food intake then you will tighten up. Of course, there is a bit more to it than just cutting back – I certainly don’t advocate calorie counting or skipping meals, but I do encourage you to consider the size of your meals. The protein element should equate to about a palm size (for an ‘average’ 150 pound (about 70kg) adult. That’s your palm, not your local giant’s. Fill the rest of your plate with fresh veg and salads and a couple teaspoons of good fat. Coconut oil, palm oil, organic ghee, extra virgin olive oil, avocado – these are all great options. If you’re not convinced that this will help you get in great shape, check out my article ‘Eat Fat to Lose Fat’ If you’d like more ideas on what to/not to eat during your shape-up week, my article ‘Why You Should Be Careful With Carbs’ is also really relevant.
  • Get your 8 hours. One of my favorite books, ‘Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar and Survival” by TS Wiley, details in vivid detail how a lack of sleep can cause you to hold onto fat stores regardless of exercise or nutrition. This is due to the imbalance caused to your hormonal system when you don’t get enough shut-eye. Sufficient sleep will not only aid physical and psychological repair, relieve your body of nasty fat-storing stress hormones, but it will also allow you to exercise more effectively throughout the day, and feel mentally strong enough to resist temptation. You can read more about the effects of sleep/lack of sleep here.
  • Watch the sneaky fat makers. You may not realize how much that skinny latte, low-fat yogurt, spoonful of sugar, etc is affecting your waistline. It’s only a week, so be strict. That means no sugar laden beverages. This includes sugar in tea/coffee, milky tea/coffee, fruit juices (even fresh), artificial sweeteners of any kind, including diet soft drink (studies have shown that these trick your hormonal system and cause a fat storing reaction). You can also cut out the low-fat products (these are generally laden with sugar, and even if they’re not, they’re still not fresh food, and say no 100% to any kind of sneaky snack. That means not even one jelly baby! It really does all add up.
  • Be careful with caffeine. Personally I love my coffee, and enjoy at least one organic long macchiato each day. But too much caffeine can have a very undesirable effect – it can cause a stress hormone reaction that puts you into fat-storing mode. Limit yourself to one cup in the morning, and stay off any other kind of caffeinated stimulant.

Even if you don’t have a really really important reason to shape up fast, why not follow this advice for a week anyway and just see what you can achieve? Who knows – it may even inspire you to live every day with greater health and energy! Oh – and if you don’t have your own reason, use mine: being unhealthy sucks. And it makes you unhappy. You know it, and I know it. And guess what? Now, today, yes this very minute, really is the best time to start transforming your body.

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.
