Anyone who regularly steps on the bathroom scale knows the power—and intimidation—of numbers when getting physically fit. But the black-and-white reality of numbers are beneficial to achieving the vision of ourselves we want. Just by tracking what you eat and how you exercise, you’ll find yourself on a more concrete path to becoming the You to want to be.
In this episode, Kelly discusses using your idealized vision to design a personalized schedule that will allow you to meet the numbers you need to succeed.
The Finer Details of This Episode:
-Vision: what are the specific goals you want to accomplish, e.g. physical appearance and fitness, activities you want to participate in, etc.?
-Taking advantage of mental encoding.
-How scheduling lets us turn our abstract goals into concrete reality.
-Kelly provides an example of her typical schedule for reference.
-The “boring” but important process of tracking your food intake and exercise habits.
-Water: easy to overlook but so very necessary to staying fit and healthy.
-Why you shouldn’t solely rely on BMI (Body Mass Index) and give Dexa bone density scans a shot.
“You need to know your vision, you need to have a schedule, and you need to know your numbers—but those numbers do not always come from the bathroom scale.”
“Being able to feel it, see it in your mind, and know what it is you want is a super quick shortcut to getting what it is that you want.”
“There is magic in [putting] pen to paper and then having your schedule somewhere you can see it.”
“The bottom line is: you do need to know, at least in broad strokes, what you’re consuming.”
