Hey everybody! Today we are going to talk about short term goals, long term vision. What are short term goals that will lead to a long term vision? Okay! My name is Stephanie. Welcome to the Keto Mom page. Where are you tuning in from? And are you watching this live? Or replay? Post it below. Are you watching live or replay? I'd love to know. And where are you tuning in from? I am tuning in from Minnesota. Right now we had a huge thunderstorm and it is spring here we are so excited. Winter is gone, Spring is moving in, at least we hope so that we're not going to get any more snow. But where are you tuning in from, live or replay? I'm super excited to talk about short term goals, long term vision.
I was standing in the shower, I know I get a lot of ideas in the shower. Anybody else? like is that like your idea place? So I was in the shower. And all of a sudden I was like, "Oh my goodness!" We are constantly on this page coaching about long term vision, how to make this a lifestyle, making sure that you never go back to the way that you were eating before. And then I was like, "You know what? There really is a different aspect to short term goals". I would love to say that our story happened overnight, right? I would love to go yes, we cleaned out our fridge, everything was on point. I understood Keto and low carb and I just had this great, like "Aha" moment. And then it was just in this little amount of time we accomplished our goals. Not so much, but we've been able to create a long term lifestyle over the last six years.
"But what we really need to be talking about are these short term goals to get you to where it's going to be long term".
So I was at the store with my girls the other day, they talked me into going to target I don't love to go shopping currently at the moment. Why? Because it's easier to shop online. Anybody else, but we had to get out of the house. And so we went to the store, my kiddos are... we're from Minnesota, just so you know. Which means when it's 50 degrees, it's summer. So my kids are running around in shorts. They need new swimsuits, and so we went to the store just to look and I am not a swimsuit girl at all. In fact, you will find me in basketball shorts, running shorts and a T shirt pretty much my entire summer. I don't remember the last time I bought a swimsuit.
So we were looking through the swimsuits, and I was like "Oh my goodness! It's almost swimsuit weather".
It's almost swimsuit season, who has thought about that? Like right now... we've got I think less than 90 days before June 1st. And so that's where this idea came from, you know, my shower idea going swimsuit shopping. And I thought what we need to be talking about is "How do you want to feel the summer?". Do you want to be able to run around with your kids, Do you want to feel confident in your own skin? Do you have goals for the next 90 days? And what does that look like?". So I love to coach lifestyle, long term, six years, don't ever go back to the way that you were eating. But what I really want to focus on right now is "What are you doing for the next less than 90 days?". Do you have goals... Like on June 1st. How do you want to feel? Is there a certain way that you want to look? Is there a certain confidence that you want to have? Do you want to go hiking and swimming and play outdoors with your kids or your spouse or go on vacation? What is it, right? Because in this next 90 days is what is going to... you're going to get to June 1st and then we'll talk about new goals, right? We'll talk about what's going to get you through the summer so that you don't fall backwards and have to start over.
So I'm going to give you five tips to get you focused and ready to go.
Over this next less than 90 days. I will tell you this... go to the store, browse through the swimsuit section and buy yourself a swimsuit. I bought a swimsuit, which I never do. I think my swimsuits probably 10 years old that I sometimes wear maybe once a year. I was like "I'm gonna buy a new suit". First of all, there's lots to choose from they get picked through very quickly. I bought a suit, it's super cute. My kids would say it's very "momish" but I think it's adorable, and it's like a little cute black skirt and I tried it on. And let me tell you for not being a swimsuit person, I was like "Huh! Alright, I can do this". I need to do a little bit more leg work outside. It gave me an extra boost to go "Oh, I want to work a little bit harder".
What can I do in the next 90 days to go a little bit stronger, feel a little bit more confident. So if you are up for the challenge I would say go to the store and buy yourself a suit and hang it in your bathroom. Because something that I've never done before, and I actually am quite confident in who I am, I was like "I could step it up! I could take my fitness to the next level! I can work a little bit harder!". So it was just something that's pushing me what would it be?
What is it going to take you to get you to push harder for the next 90 days? Like what is it that you need to visibly see?
Or maybe it's an accountability partner, maybe you need to call up your mom or your sister, your cousin or your coworker, your friend and go "Hey I need to get focused for the next 80 days", because I think we've got for sure, less than 90 days till June 1st. Will you hold me accountable? Let's go walking together. Hey every single day, let's text each other at the end of the night and go "How was your eating?". Is this making sense? Let me know... like what are you going to do to hold yourself accountable for the next, under 90 days to get to the summer? I'd love to know below.
What is it? Is it an accountability partner? Are you going to go buy a swimsuit, or you're going to go buy a pair of shorts that you want to fit in and you know that if you could get to that next size, you're going to feel so great this summer? Go get it hanging in your bathroom? So I hope this is making sense. I want to read your comments... Like, what are you going to do? How are you going to go after it? Are you going to work out a little bit longer? Are you going to say "No, I've got a girlfriend actually a whole bunch of girlfriends that have said you know what? We are saying no to sugar all of March". And I was like, "Oh, that's so great".
So what if we started that today on the Keto mom page and we said "No sugar for the rest of March".
We'll talk about April when it gets here. We'll talk about the next month but who can commit to no more sugar? No more little sneaky, sweet treats like no more cheat treats. Could you do it for the rest of March? Could you? I can!. We've had a lot of birthday parties, I'm not gonna say that I never cheat. I usually will have a cookie or at my mom's 60th birthday, I had a piece of cake. I got myself back on track the next day, but I had a piece of cake. Did I feel great? Absolutely not. Could I feel it in my system? 100%. Was it worth it? I don't really know we got to celebrate, it was fun. But I got back on track. But I am committed today. Whether it's a birthday party, or you know something at our church, whatever it is no more sugar for the rest of the month. We'll talk about next month later.
So all I want you to do is I'm gonna give you five quick tips, if your goal is to get on track and then get to where you want June 1st, here's your tip. I actually wrote them out for you. If you do not know I am a homeschool mom, we've got four daughters and four dogs kind of equals eight kids. We homeschool them and here is your tip. So it's kind of like a homeschool lesson today.
Take a screenshot if you need to, if it helps. I'll hold this for you and if it's backwards, I'm sorry. It's backwards I'm just going to say them for you really quick. Here is what you need to do for the next 80 days, see if you can commit to it. Number one, work on intermittent fasting. It rests your body you're not going to overeat, you're going to actually help get your body into ketosis quicker. Intermittent fasting, it's about 16 hours from separate time the night before, to about lunchtime where you're not eating. Some of you drink coffee, I drink ketones. Some of you drink fat coffee, whatever it is water tea, but intermittent fasting. And everybody's intermittent fasting might look a little different, it's okay. Number two, we're gonna work on drinking more water. What are you drinking that's full of sugar? Let's get sugary drinks out, drink some water. Mine has some ketones and electrolytes in it, drink your water. Number one intermittent fasting, number two drinking water. Number three, we are cutting the sugar for this month.
No little treats, no cheat treats, no doughnuts, no cupcakes, no birthday cake. It's okay, you're going to survive, it's going to help you I promise. No sugar.
Number four, we're just going to lower the carbs, right? Think about when you're making a meal. Can you get rid of the pasta, bread and potatoes and just eat some more protein and veggies. I'm not talking about being crazy strict and tracking every single thing you eat, although some of you do that. But if you're just starting or need to just get something in your mind of what you're doing to make those better choices every day. Drop the pasta and potatoes and bread eat more protein and veggies or a salad. And then Number five, I'm going to talk about real quick. I think it's super important is I drink ketones every day, super powerful. It's super incredible, and it has helped me from day one.
"Day one I drank ketones, it completely changed my life".
So here's what it is. You can grab a five-day trial kit. This is where I started almost six years ago. I took a packet of ketones, I put it in my water and that day, I felt incredible. It gave me the energy focus, appetite control, better mood, better sleep. And so if it's helpful, guess what? Grab some Ketones, you can post a five in the comments if you want to trial kit. Or Guess what?
Focus on your water, focus on making better choices in your food. Focus on your sleep and moving your body, all of those things.
Reach out with questions, post your questions in the comments. Or send me a message, and I would love to walk you through what it looks like to whatever your goals are. How are you feeling? How are you doing? So we're going to focus on we're always focusing on a long-term lifestyle. Always, always always, because I don't want you to go backward, and then get here in a year and then have to start over.
But for right now we're going to focus on a short-term goal. And that's from now until summer. So that you can feel confident you can move your body, you can play with your kids, you can go hiking, you can feel comfortable in your skin. So I want to know who's committed to no sugar this month? Who's committed to under 90 days of focusing on your goals. Reach out with your questions, I'm always here to help. Post "New" below, if you're brand new so I can get to know you. I'll reach out and we'll have a question about your goals and go back and forth. Otherwise, we're going to develop habits over the next 90 days to create a long-term lifestyle.
