‘How bad do you want it? The choice is yours’

Are you pushing yourself 100 per cent? Maybe 80 per cent? Well, if that’s the case and you aren’t happy with your results, why not push yourself that little bit EXTRA this last week on the August  28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and give it the full 100 per cent?

Dana says, “Remember the choice is yours. You can put in little effort or BIG effort! Just know when you put yourself all in, be ready for change!!!”

As it’s the last week of the August Challenge, this week is all about focusing on your goals as we approach the finish line. Thankfully, Dana has some handy tips to help!

1. “Write down your goals.”

Sometimes it helps to have them in one place rather than keeping them just in your head.

2. “Surround yourself with your goals.”

“When you wake in the morning make sure you can see them! When we surround ourselves with what we want – we start to stop doing the things we don’t want…”

3. “Wake in the morning and have a warm glass of lemon water.”

4. “Have a smoothie!”

5. “Look in the mirror and say ‘I CAN DO THIS!!!'”

That bit of self-motivation can make all the difference!

6. “When the day starts to get hard, LOOK at those goals!!!”

Dana says, “It’s the last week of THIS challenge but it’s the start of a whole new chapter! YOU CAN DO IT!”

Thanks for the awesome tips Dana!
