The Strong Kitchen Goal Setting Guide
By Lucas Serwinski C.S.C.S, PN Certified
We know nutrition can be confusing. There is so much information, conflicting advice and suggested diets that just choosing something to work on can be hard!
We’re here to tell you that nutrition plans don’t have to be complicated, nor should they be for most people. So we decided to create a 4 step approach to creating your own easy to use system that makes getting results simpler and more realistic.
You need to have desire, of course, but that doesn't get you far without actually setting a goal, creating habits and then having a process to measure them by.
I've watched every Rocky movie multiple times, especially the old-school ones. Every single time I watch I have this 5-10 minute desire to take up boxing as a hobby; I feel thrilled and elated seeing Stallone training hard and overcoming his adversaries.
Except, that feeling fades pretty quickly because I don't want to do that, it's just an effective movie. If I REALLY wanted to start boxing I'd have to search for local gyms, try out a session or two, buy equipment, train for a specific goal and set a timeline for something I wanted to achieve.
When setting a goal, think to yourself, "is this just a 5-10 minute Rocky-type thrill I am feeling or something different?".
And remember you can start small -nail a pretty easy goal and keep building on that over time. Small successes lead to larger successes.
Most people simply need the following:
- Simple, straightforward guidelines
- Making sure you have the skills and tools to implement habits and changes
- Enough education to understand the process
Here’s the process we’ll take you through:
- Goal setting- Lets create clear goals that are measurable, time sensitive and can bebroken down into practical daily habits and skills
- Goals -> Skills -> Habits – We need to break down your goal into a skill that you need.That skill is made up of daily habits and practices that support that goal
- Food Education – Making sure we have a basic understanding of what foodgroups/sources like protein, carbohydrates, fats and fiber are
- Implementation- Deciding what habits we work on first and in what order. This builds your nutrition plan and does so in a way that is measurable, time sensitive, clear andsimple to implement
Are you ready to make a change? Let’s work on this step by step. Don’t skip ahead in the process and follow steps 1 through 4 to create your own unique and achievable nutrition system!
