One of the problems a lot of people run into along their wellness journey regards measuring progress. First you need an effective system to create results but you also need a system to measure results. Sometimes individuals might be following the right principles and creating results but lack the method in which to accurately measure progress. In the same manner, they might place too much importance on certain progress indicators without understanding the overall importance of multiple progress points. This leads to to a decrease in motivation, consistency, and ultimately sustainable results. If we have high demand lifestyles we don't have time and energy to waste on spinning our wheels. We need effective and efficient systems to get us to our goal and give us the capacity to better execute our life mission (the things you are very passionate about). During this blog, I want to share with you my progress point system that will allow you to accurately track progress which allows you to see results effectively and efficiently.
This topic is primarily directed towards those who are looking to lose fat. If you are maintaining your weight or aren't focused on weight loss at this point this can also be a useful topic in terms of creating more sustainability with your nutrition.
Weight loss is primarily driven from viewpoint of the weekly caloric deficit. That is where you see a lot of your progress. The daily calories matter (because they make up the weekly calorie data) but the total weekly caloric deficit is where you see the results. I would encourage you to view your nutrition through this lens because in doing so you gain a different perspective. First, you can let go of meals where you "miss the mark" because you realize the weekly picture is more important. Secondly, you can begin to see holes or opportunities for growth in your nutritional protocol from a larger point of view.
