    Stacking Habits: Piggybacking Your Way to Success

    Right now as I look at my progress, I want to quit eating all food, go on a liquid diet, run a marathon, and dump a ton of weight by 6:30. We want the weight off. We want it off yesterday. Meanwhile back, in reality, a better strategy is to set up some habits to do the right things on a consistent basis.

    He Lost 70 lbs and Has Kept if Off For Four Years

    I got an email. In it stated:

    4 years ago, I weighed over 275 lbs. I was depressed and addicted to video games. I played more than 12 hours of games per day. Fortunately, I lost over 70 lbs and I've kept the weight off for 4 years.

    More importantly, I transformed not only my physical health but my emotional and mental health too. I'm at that stage where I wanna share my experience with others who wanna make the same “health gains” that I did. So I invited Danyon Toniga on to the show to share his story. Some of the keys to his success:

    Do what you love. If you make it a chore, you'll never do it.

    Drink water before the meal and eat healthy first, then have a taste of the junk food

    If you can't do a taste, then plan it ahead of time and work it into your schedule, but keep that calorie deficit.

    Danyon uses the scale, but more importantly how he feels as a gauge of his success.

    The Poison of Perfection

    January started great for me, but mid-monthI started to go back to my old habits. We've talked about doing little things. I know what I want in my routine:

    • Meditation (God time)
    • Affirmations
    • Exercise
    • Water
    • Sleep
    • Food that helps me achieve my goals
    • Taking my Advocare MNS 3 Suppliment

    Yet, for some reason, I'm not doing all of these and the one that is mind boggling is taking a supplement. Really? how hard is swallowing a pill? The MNS 3 has a few pills you need to take at certain times, and yet at the end of the day, there is always one package I forgot to take with my lunch. 

    I decided I would write down all of the things I wanted to accomplish each day into the Way of Life app. I was determined and decided I would start on Sunday.

    Here it is Monday, and I didn't do it. I was so pissed. Do I need to make a checklist to remind me to use my checklist? UGH! So my initial reaction so that I could get a perfect week (my goal) was to try again next Sunday. Wait, what?

    Yep instead of getting on track on Tuesday, in an effort to have a perfect week, I would wait until Sunday to try to get hyper-focused. 

    I was being poisoned by the thought of perfection. I noticed how this idea made me waste sic days where I could work on improving my efforts. Why wait until Sunday when I can take another crack at this tomorrow? So I did, and I did.

    Don't start “tomorrow” or “next week” or ” (insert day/event, etc) you can start improving you health right now

    Advocare Spark Energy and Focus Drinks

    Advocare Spark -Mango Strawberry

    I love Advocare Stick Packs. They are introducing a new flavor that is pineapple and coconut. I love it, and will be very sad when my free sample runs out. In the meantime, my favorite is Mango Strawberry. Add these to your water and you've got a unique blend of 20 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that work synergistically to provide a healthy and balanced source of energy.* Spark contains an effective amount of caffeine to give you a quick boost, B vitamins to enhance your body's natural ability to produce and sustain its own energy, and neuroactive ingredients that enhance mental focus and alertness.

    I became a distributor cause I love their chocolate protein shakes. When you are a distributor, you get deep discounts, and it pays for itself.

    Follow Up On Last Weeks Interview With Karina Melvin

    Last week I interviewe Karina Melvin and got lots of great feedback. She is from Ireland, and it turns out her books is not available in the US. I let Karina know we are trying to get her book, and she sent this link to a book distributor that should deliver to the US.

    Atomic Habits

    Thanks to Josh from www.onthebubblepodcast.comhttp://www.onthebubblepodcast.comand www.punchingsideways.com for recommending the book, “Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones.” You can get this as an audiobook for free by going to www.logicalloss.com/audible 

    In the book, the author James Clear talks about how little things can add up to big results. Think of it like compound interest with money. This is what inspired me to create my checklist of atomic habits I want to create. I'm only through three chapters and so far I love it. 

    One easy step you can do is to ask, “What would a healthy person do?” Then do that. Eventually, YOU will be a healthy person. The other thing that really struck me is when we start doing these small steps, in the long run, they can change how we feel about ourselves.

    The Psychology of Weight Loss With Karina Melvin

    I don't normally have interviews but I saw all the credentials of Karina, and how she had multiple degrees in psychology and addition I thought she must have insights that can help us all.

    Today you will hear her say things that may make you go, “Wait, what?” but on the other hand if you've been doing the same things for year and all you have to show is a yo-yo weight loss plan, Karina explains how some of the very things I do (restricting my food choices, focusing on calories, and other things) may be the wrong strategies. 

    With this in mind you might check out her book and if you are new to audible you can get her book for free when you sign up at www.logicalloss.com/audible

    Check out her book, her courses, blog, podcast and more at www.karinamelvin.com

    I'm So Glad I Didn't Quit

    Special thanks to Nick Florido for the $30

    Today I share how I was doing everything I was supposed to do I:

    Drink 60-80 oz of water
    Get seven hours of sleep a night
    Eat less than 2000 calories
    Get 60 minutes of exercise or 10,000 steps
    and yet the scale didn't move. In fact, in some days the scale went up. I was furious, and frustrate and I wanted to quit, but I didn't. I'm glad I didn't

    Today I woke up and I hit my goal.

    I focused on doing all the right things that lead to weight loss instead of the skill. On the Biggest Loser they had a saying, “Trust the process” and in this case I did
