August LC Basics Boot Camp 2017: Week 2 (8/8-8/14)
Repeat of the challenge parameters
Welcome to the August LC Basics Boot Camp!
One key thing that I have learned in my journey is this:
Consistency + Persistence + Time = Success
Consistently nailing the basics is so important. And consistency creates good habits, routines, and gives you momentum that will carry you through hard times or disruptions to your normal schedule. Forget motivation. Motivation is a fickle thing. Discipline carries you through when motivation fails you.
So what are the basics?
Well, hitting your carb goal, obviously, right? There are other very important basics we need to lock in: staying hydrated, keeping electrolytes up, logging consistently (if you're a logger), exercise (if that's one of your goals), hitting your macros, staying away from trigger foods and other things you know set you back...
You can report your progress to your goal, whether it be ultra-obsessive daily hitting your low-carb plan basics, or working on a fitness goal, or even nailing down other good habits in your life. And if you have problems or need advice, you'll find that here.
Each week there will be a thread to collect your progress that week and to interact with other challengers.
I'll keep links to the weekly threads at the bottom of the stickied post should the thread get buried. 2 clicks, to this post and the Weekly link, will get you back to it.
So go ahead and post your goals in this Thread.
My daily post would look something like this.
Prelogged next day:
But this is your show. So focus on your basics.
Make this month count! Tear it up!
