Time to get measured and encouraged again.

Hello All!

So, you have started (some of you are already half way through) the 30 day challenge. You should see some results by now. All the headaches and discomfort with the detox symptoms should be finished (except for those who just started).
The first week is the toughest, then it get better, and better, and better.... I have started with you (the first group) and enter my 3rd week now. I had actually gained 2 pounds in the first week. I had to adjust my munching on too much of the good stuff, like nuts and seeds. Even of all the allowed foods, one can overdo it; calories don't need to be counted, but they do count. Especially if you don't get enough exercise. So I took it easy on the nuts, and increased my exercises. I have not only lost the 2 pounds and a few more, but I see a change in my body shape; I like it! As I told you, you have to exercise every day. At least 15 minutes of concentrated high intensity workout (the ones we practiced on the field the other day). If you have any concerns with this, or want to come in for more instruction, please call me and I will arrange to meet with you.

I also want to have everybody at the Center on Tuesday evening at 5:30 PM for a one hour long instruction on visualization, self hypnosis and positive thinking, and share thoughts about your progress or the lack of it.
I will send out e-mails to everybody as a reminder.
Until then, stay focused! Don't cheat! be stubbornly consistent with your program, and you will be successful. I guarantee it! It's only for 30 days!! You can do it.. I believe in you and I love you.

Time to get dead serious about your commitment

Hello again!
Well firstly I have to apologize for a a laps of 4 days although I promised a blog every 2 days.
I tried to find out why it seems to be difficult to respond or follow my blogs. It looks like google wants you to have an account with them, albeit free, but not everybody may want to do this. I still will work on a solution. Of course when my website is up and running (2 weeks hopefully), we will not have this problem anymore.

Today is check up day:
Answer these questions truthfully (who do you want to kid anyway?)

1.) Have you written clearly and well described your goals? Have you looked at them every day and restated your commitment to follow through 100%? Anything less is not acceptable, and will only make you feel bad about yourself until you give up. Don't do it! It has been shown that if you have written down your goals in a clear and time sensitive manner, and prepare your meals at least a day ahead, the success rate is 98% secured. In today's uncertainty, I take 98% for sure at any time. It's only for 30 days! I hold you accountable. Are you writing your food and liquids in your food journal? No? Why not? Please start immediately; it will help you to see if you plateau in your weightloss what may cause it. Just d
o it. Follow through. Most failures can be prevented by just following through to the end, no matter what! You will be so proud of yourself!!! 2.) We will start a regular workout that you can do at home. It will only take between 15 and 20 minutes; twice a day. It is called the Integrated workout. Every muscle in your body will be worked. No equipment necessary. You need to come to the Center so we can practice the sequence a few times. I will send out personal e-mails later tonight to which I expect a quick reply to find what time would be convenient for everybody. So, as of Monday January 26 you will be entering a new phase; you will be joining "Angelika's Bootcamp" You want to detox, reshape your body, implement some healthier eating habits (for life) and get energetic, powerful and ageless! Don't you? So let's do it! See you soon at the Center. Much love (yes, I love you) and joy, Angelika
