Hello, all my Facebook friends. Bianca Aiono here, Weight Loss Motivation Coach, and I’m coming to you from Bali. Now, my mission on earth is to help you get vibrant health and incredible life wealth, and I’ve been living it up here, but I’ve been a complete banana-lounging, nasi-goreng-eating, chocolate-binging, couch potato for the last week or so, and I definitely, definitely am inspired to get back on track, back on the healthy-eating track when I get home to the Sunshine Coast.
One of the things that I always want to tell people is that there are some golden rules if you want to get back on track with your healthy-eating. Neglecting these awesome rules is what sets you up for failure where you might eat healthily for 2 weeks, but then you forget and slip up, over and over.
Or maybe you just realise you’re bored and life’s too short to live without chocolate, or pizza, or wine and then you end up binging on it just because you said you couldn’t have it.
I’m really excited to share with you some of these golden rules and definitely being overseas makes me so much more aware of the incredible produce and healthy food that we have available to us. Right now, I’ve been experiencing just that cloggy feeling from eating nasi-goreng. It might be the easiest thing to buy and it’s very inexpensive – there aren’t many leafy greens in there and the rice is cooked in oils that makes you feel really claggy and stuck.
Whilst there are an abundance of different options, like coconut water, and some fresh juices depending on where you go, the type of foods that I would normally go to are really expensive in a resort like this. If you’re paying Australian prices here, it’s like sitting down and paying $80 for one serve of poached eggs, toast, tomato and some ham or something like that. (And not even Australian quality either!)
Yes, I’m definitely keen to get back on track when I get back home, and three of the golden rules that I make sure I tell everybody ….
1. Do NOT have a Start Date!
Never ever have a day where it’s going to be a stop and a start. Okay?
When you know that you’re going to start Monday, you’re always going to end up bingeing on the weekend beforehand. You’ll end up eating foods that you know you’re not “allowed” to have, and that actually sets us up for bingeing on foods that we didn’t really want to have in the first place -just because we think we’re going to go without.
I know that after one of my body sculpting competitions I did, I actually woke up the next day and I had a whole packet of meat slice biscuits for breakfast. I had meat pies for lunch. I had toasty sandwiches. All the foods that I missed out on, and then I thought, “I’ll start Monday, and I’ll just have all this stuff,” and that went on for six months! I went for six months ON a diet and then Six months OFF a diet!
I know first-hand what it’s like when you just feel like you’re either on a diet or off a diet, and there’s no happy meeting in between, so the first golden rule is don’t have a start date.
I’m actually going to be telling you about my Back on Track in 30 Days programme, which starts in September 1st, but the cool thing is there’s actually a week zero. How cool is that? There’s actually so much warming up to the programme that you don’t even know you started it.
You’ve already started before it even started, and that blows us out of the water because we are so used to thinking that we’re failing when we start this type of programmes that this is actually one of my golden rules to make sure, ensure that you have success.
2. NO Foods are Off Limits!
The second golden rule is to not ever say that you’re not allowed to have something, so only add things in so use the add-in principle. As you add all the good foods in, the leafy greens, the good fats, the lean proteins, when you add those foods in, then you actually start crowding the junk food out, the negative food out, the negative behaviours, so just think about adding foods in.
3. Set the intention of what you want (Not what you don’t want!)
Then, the third one is having and setting an intention. This is the most important one, right? Setting the intention of where you actually want to end up. Most of the time, if there is a weight loss goal, you’re really just saying that you are trying to achieve the absence of something, right?
If I get in a taxi here in Bali, I can’t say that I don’t want to be here at Karma Kandara, right? I can’t say I want to lose Karma Kandara. I have to say what I actually want where … Hi, Jen. I have to say what I actually want and where I actually want to end up.
That’s the same as when you set the intention of where you want to end up and what the purpose is of your healthy-eating, and so that might be, “I want to end up in a destination where I feel comfortable in my clothes, I can put my hands on my waist and feel that trimmed waistline, I jump out of bed in the mornings, I crave healthy foods that are full of vitality, and I just have a smile on my face, and I feel confident, I love doing activities like going swimming with my family, I love working out, and it’s just an easy, and effortless, and natural thing that I do.”
Can you see how different that is to the normal, average, “I want to get rid of this,” or, “I want to lose this,” or, “I want to be X number on the scale?” When you can actually see, taste, hear, and feel exactly where you want to end up, you infinitely improve your chances of arriving there.
That’s why you hear so many of my clients talk about they’ve dropped all this weight and they didn’t really even try because they were just living life, because your life gets set up for sustaining this kind of healthy change.
If you want to know about my Get Back on the Healthy-Eating Track in 30 days programme, it’s actually a live programme where you’re going to get videos like this helping you get your mindset right every single day, and I’ll be doing it along with you.
I’m going to be sharing with you the best tips and tricks to organising yourself in the kitchen, about preparing your meals, and there are just so many things in there that I didn’t realise people didn’t understand and now are really going the hard way about trying to eat healthy.
When you’re trying to eat healthy there are so many hacks. There are so many easy ways around your obstacles. and this is where this kind of information need strategies to really change people’s lives because they didn’t realise how easy it can be. No, you don’t have to like throw out your whole kitchen cupboard. You don’t have to just be smart!
