Week 5 of Our Challenge: And…ACTION!

IMG_6081_zps743aa6be (1)

4 Weeks down and just 2 more to go of Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp New Year’s Revolution Challenge.  My AWESOME team members have been so focused and committed through this challenge. As I said in my last post, it is so exciting to see people gaining confidence in their ability to change their body and their life. BELIEVING that you have the power to control your life is the first step in reaching your health and fitness goals, or any goals for that matter!

But BELIEVING will only get you so far. While this is crucial to the foundation of your success, it is only one piece of the puzzle. You must add ACTION to make your beliefs come alive! Let’s put it this way, is the person who is reaching their health and fitness goals the one on the couch making the fanciest vision board full of chiseled ab photos and power statements, watching “The Secret” and thinking about how they BELIEVE that this is the year for them? Nope. It is the person who…

  • Calls a friend to schedule a workout date
  • Takes out their calendar and schedules 3 workouts for the week
  • Throws out all the junk food in the house
  • Finally does that fitness DVD that’s been on the shelf
  • Goes to the gym
  • Puts on their shoes and goes for a walk/run
  • Google-researches their health and fitness questions
  • Plans their healthy meals for the week
  • Schedules an appointment with a personal trainer
  • Schedules a nutrition consultation
  • Logs and shares their food journal (heyyy Fitness Pal)
  • Reaches out for support from trainers, friends, family
  • Calls to find out more about Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp (shameless plug)

Get the point? Nothing wrong with vision boards (believe I’ve made enough of them to build a small poster board house) but wanting, visioning, and believing will only position you in the right direction for success. ASKING, DOING, and SWEATING is what will get you there AND KEEP YOU GOING when you hit inevitable bumps along the way. So this week, commit to adding some jet fuel (ACTION) to your coffee (YOUR GOALS). Here’s a simple sample –

MY GOAL THIS WEEK:

Beat my fit test numbers from last week

ACTION STEPS:

  1. Message my Accountability Partner and let them know my goal
  2. Google-research tips for doing burpees and push-ups
  3. Foam roll, hydrate, eat clean, and go to bed early this week, especially the day before my fit test
  4. Ask someone who has higher numbers than me what their tricks are for fit test

You can use this method of adding ACTION STEPS to your goals in all areas of your life! Create a new ritual…sit down on Sundays and write out all the things you want in life, then add 3 ACTION STEPS that you can take during the week to get you closer to each one! Then DO THEM!!! Revisit the list every week and be amazed by the way the Universe supports those of us that TAKE ACTION to create the life we want! Boom!

Wishing you an inspired, empowered week full of ACTION! Go get ‘um, Team!

But what are the RULES?

Guess what…I have been purposely VAGUE on what the “rules” are for our Team Awesome Boomtastic Challenge because I truly believe that YOU KNOW what you need to do to be healthy. If you sit quietly enough and REALLY listen, your body will tell you exactly what you need to do to make this the healthiest, happiest year yet. And when you listen to yourself and follow your own intuition about what is true for you and what YOU need, the results will be so much more meaningful and lasting.

I know it would be so much easier if someone would just tell you what to do, what to eat, how to magically cure all your aches and pains, and how to heal all of your emotional issues, but when we rely on others to design our lives, we lose touch with who we are and what it is WE NEED to be our best selves. We go on auto-pilot and tune out the only person in the world who is completely 100% invested in your health and happiness – YOU!!!

I am here to guide you, support you, inspire you, and give you recommendations based on what has worked for me. Some of it will resonate, some won’t, and that’s OK! Take what you want and leave the rest. As a team we are here to support each other in becoming more and more awesome everyday. Share with each other, pump each other up – it’s amazing how the more we help others, the more we grow, expand, and evolve too.

Yesterday I took some time to listen to my body and this is what it told me it needed:

  • Sleep (I listened and went to bed at 5pm and woke up at 5am! OMG!)
  • A break from booze (I plan to go dry for at least a month – although I’m allowing myself a couple drinks when my Unicorn Sister May comes to town to visit in a couple weeks! Yay!)
  • Some alone time to get organized (yesterday and today I caught up on housework, work, email, and other stuff I’ve put off during the holidays)
  • Water water water! (drinking some as I write this)
  • More organic, raw, vegan, unprocessed deliciousness in my diet and less dairy and processed sugar/white flour/white rice/white pasta, etc. (made some yummy mostly raw mushroom kim chi sprouted tofu nori rolls for lunch today – see photo)

Each week, I plan to take some time to get quiet and check in with my body to see what it needs and wants and I encourage you to do the same. Simply lock yourself in a room somewhere, turn off all media, disconnect from the outer and connect with the inner…write down any inspirations or messages you receive and then ACT ON THEM.

Remember – change only happens when YOU REALLY WANT IT. And if you really want something, you will find a way to achieve it and you will magically manifest the support you need (that’s where me and your teammates come in!). My wish for you is that this is the year that you discover what you truly want and you take full ownership for how you are going to create the body and life you desire. I believe in you, but to be Boomtastic YOU gotta believe in you!

So…what is your body telling you, oh Awesome One?

Here Comes the BOOM!

Merry Christmas, especially to my beloved Team Awesome of Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp! As we gear up for the new year, I have decided to resurrect CampKimi.com to help support us as we head into what is sure to be the MOST AWESOME YEAR yet!

I’m so happy and grateful to have had an amazing year, and an especially MAGICAL November and December for many reasons ❤ . But between my Mediterranean cruise (http://www.foodiecruisingwithalan.wordpress.com), my first marathon (and carb indulging), visiting friends, holiday parties, dinners, sugary treats, and lots of wine with my SUPER AWESOME friends and family…my body (and spirit) could definitely use some house cleaning and rejuvenation. In fact, my actual house could use some deep cleaning too, because as you probably have observed in your own lives, there is always a correlation between the state of our surroundings and the state of our insides.

I love this special week between Christmas and the New Year. Everyone is nursing figurative and literal Christmas hangovers, so expectations are minimal and work is light, making it the perfect time to review the past year and get focused on the year ahead. I’m so excited to set some new goals, get my body back in balance, and make 2013 the best year ever!

I know from experience that team challenges with my Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp family are a sure fire way to take our health and fitness to the next level, so as a Christmas gift to all of us I’m kicking off a New Year’s 2013 Challenge especially for my class members at Egan’s Bootcamp, better known as the amazeballs sub-cult, Team Awesome.

This Challenge is going to go hand-in-hand with the incredible Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp New Year’s Revolution Challenge that all of our bootcampers will have the opportunity to participate in. If you want in on the awesomeness, visit http://www.hawaiifitcamp.com for more information and give us a call ASAP!  Challenge begins the first week of January, so don’t wait – make this year the best one yet by getting on board right away!

Our Team Awesome sub-cult sub-challenge, will be known from here on out as The Team Awesome Boomtastic 2013 Challenge, named after one of our amazing Team Awesome members, Joel Cosseboom, in honor of the inspiring life changes and transformations he has made in his life in the past year! Joel represents the spirit of Team Awesome – striving for awesomeness everyday with an awesome attitude, hard work and dedication, a great sense of humor, and amazing team spirit. Let’s all commit to bringing the Boom! in 2013 just like Joel!!!!!!

Our Challenge will begin one week from today on January 1 (although, if you have big New Year’s plans, no biggie if you start Jan 2 – I don’t like putting too much emphasis on New Year’s anyway…really, the best day to start any program or challenge is ANY day you choose to start…it is less about the day and ALL about the INTENTION).

I’ll be posting encouragement, guidance, and my personal progress/journey on this blog and in our Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp facebook groups. This week is PREP WEEK, so we’ll be taking the next few days to get ourselves primed and pumped for our BOOMTASTIC 2013!!!!! So tell me, are you ready to BRING THE BOOM?!!!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned, Awesome Ones!
