Hello and welcome to the Find What Works module! This week we'll be addressing a common misconception that holds us back. I don't know why but we make this mistake all the time.

We think we're supposed to do something and get it right on the first try. I don't know why we have these false expectations. What makes matters even worse is that when we try something and things don't go according to our false expectations, we then blame ourselves for it.

Well in Exercise Bliss we know better! Let me get this straight - I don't expect you to find the perfect anchor, the perfect exercise and frequency of exercise in your first month. No, what I expect you to do is to experiment, try different things, and gradually discover what works, as well as what doesn't.

So this week is all about learning how to experiment. This is supposed to be a fun process where you'll learn all sort of different things about yourself.

You'll also learn how to evaluate whether you're really progressing, how to pick good anchors for your new habit, and how to increase the amount of exercise you do! Really how do you go from 5 minutes to 15 minutes, 30 or beyond?

Now before I let you go I want to remind you that next week will be "catch up" week. So there will be no new material for Gold Members other than more exercise. This is designed so that you have the time to catch up on any videos you may have missed. We'll resume in Week 5.

Now ready to learn all about creating better weekly exercise plans?

Evaluate Your Progress

Let's use the scientific method to study...yourself and how to best get to your vision of making exercise second nature. You'll learn:

  • Skipped a workout? Here's how to diagnose what happened and discover what got in your way.
  • How to use this information to set better weekly goals. And...
  • So you've been exercising. But are you really progressing? How can you tell? Is it just about strength and what you see on the scale? In what other ways can you measure your progress?

Finally, you'll learn all about the difference between "result metrics" & "process metrics," and why it matters.

From 5 min to 10, 15, and beyond.

So you picked "brushing your teeth in the morning" as an anchor. But is it a good anchor? And what if it's not?

Introducing the Stacking Method, or else how to go from 5 min of exercise to 10, 15, and beyond.

What Insights Did You Gain?

Now that you know all about tracking your progress I want you to write down 3 different process metrics that you will be using to evaluate your progress. Don't skip this step - the people who write down what they learn are the ones who get the best results.

Ok, if you don't want to talk about metrics you can talk about your anchor. How has it been working for you?
