Top Tips To Help Hit Your Goals! You Only Fail If You Quit!

Updated: Jan 6

Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie Mielke. I want to give you some tips and tricks on what an average day can and should look like, as you're diving into being healthier and stronger.


I want to talk to you a little bit about a life lesson...

It would be so interesting to know how many people have had one of those days where it didn't go the way that they wanted it to. Since the day hasn't gone the way that they wanted, most people either quit and restart tomorrow, or get super frustrated. This is what most people go through.

You might have days where you feel like you messed up... Just like today, I could say I already messed up. I did. We have guests in our home, my sister and her family are here and we've been having a great time. We have been partying from Thursday until Wednesday, and so we've been up late. Our days aren't going as 100% as I thought.

Here, we talk about life lessons and mindset. So, since we stayed up till like one o'clock in the morning, I'm going to tell you where my mind was when I got up. I didn't have enough time to talk about the new book, I actually didn't do a lot of my mindfulness this morning. I walked myself through being thankful, and grateful, and listened to something because I was getting ready for CrossFit.


Something I think that's super important, as you're diving into a new year, new day, new month, new goals, and big aspirations for this year is having something called A.Q.

I want to talk about our life lessons because that's what's going to help you not quit. It's going to help you when you have those days that are not going your way... There has to be some adaptability in your life for you to keep going and keep pushing forward.

We had to be adaptable all week, and it's been great. We love our family, we have great conversations about life, and we're staying up late till one o'clock in the morning.

All I want you to know is, "The only way you're going to fail this year in anything that you're going after, is if you quit"...

I got up this morning, even if it didn't go exactly the way I planned. But we still went to the gym, we made everybody a great breakfast, we had some great conversations, and I went through my book. But I could have also easily gotten frustrated and not read it.

Sometimes you might just want to throw your hands up in the air, restart tomorrow, and then spiral out of control for the rest of the day. Whether it's your attitude, things you choose to eat, or skipping a workout. I want you to know that there has to be some kind of adaptability on this journey, and that's a life lesson. We've also talked about awareness, EQ, or controlling your emotions. We've talked about the power of your words, and understanding adaptability or A.Q.

If you're somebody who loses it, gets frustrated, or angry, or throws your hands up in the air if the day doesn't go your way, then that means you have a low adaptability quotient (AQ). I can actually say that our family has a really high AQ level. I actually did not feel like I started the year off how I intended to start it, but that's okay. It's okay to be like this.

It's like the game of life and how well you can handle it. When things happen and you did not plan for them to happen, it's okay. You can make some rearranging, you can choose your attitude.


The only way You fail is if You quit!

We actually made a funny YouTube short about telling people what to do. A lot of people have been messaging me "Just tell me what to do", "Tell me what you want to do", or "How do I lose the weight?", "How do I get healthy?"...

And so we posted one video on Youtube, and all I was doing was giving very directive actions...

"Don't eat this".

"You don't need to snack all day".

And I have never seen more hateful comments in my life over one directive post. It's so interesting how another life lesson that we talked about last week was not being offended. It's so funny how people will say "Tell me what to do!", and when you tell them what to do, they get so mad!

It was so funny because we teetered on this, "Do we take the video down?"... Wow! People are really offended that I'm telling them not to snack.

"Who are you to tell me not to snack?"

I mean you're on my page! It's called Keto Mom, clearly, you want to lose some weight. You're going to have people in your life that are going to throw something at you or give you some negative feedback. But we eventually decided to delete the video because of the amount of hate and that could have wrecked my day.

So I said, "Delete the video! I actually don't care if they want to know who I am, they can come and figure me out. They can come and ask questions and realize that I really do want to help and coach them".

If you want directive coaching, then tell me what to do, if your feelings get hurt easily. I can go easy on you. But you're going to have to be quite adaptable because it's not going to always go your way, but it's okay.

I want you to have this concept in your mind because the mindset is super important...

"I just can't quit"

"I just can't quit".


We're coaching people on intermittent fasting, and my husband and I have been way more intentional with intermittent fasting. If you want to lose weight and feel better, follow this process. I've never felt better in my life.

So I'm using an intermittent fasting kit that gets me up in the morning with my ketones. I drank my electrolytes, water, and protein right before I went to the gym. I felt amazing, came home, and made some breakfast for everybody. I intermittent fast and I ate after I was done with my morning. If your goal is to feel better, intermittent fasting is key.
