Your Keto Journey - TEAM WORK: Life and Health is about assembling Your Team

team work 1

If you follow most any type of sports, you quickly see that no one person is solely responsible for his or her own success.  You need a team to work together in cooperation with you to accomplish Your Goal!!!  Learn more in today’s Your Keto Journey© post.


Many sports consist of a TEAM of players.  Oh sure, one person may get top billing by the media for a brief period of time.  But, notice how this happens only for a brief period of time.  Why?  Because the next “Big” thing or person is right around the corner.  So, in the media, you see one name mentioned until the next Big Name grabs the spot light.


My point is this:  A TEAM is just what the term implies.  More than one.  Several.  A Group.


The purpose of any group is to work together toward a certain or specific goal.


Even track stars, skaters and Olympic athletes – although they may perform singularly – are comprised of a TEAM.  There will usually be at least one coach involved in this person’s success.  Then there are what I like to call the Supporters.


An athlete’s Supporters may consist of Family, Friends, Fans, other professionals, and medical professionals. 


What’s the point of this?


Even those individuals who appear  to be performing solo, are not really alone.  They have a TEAM of men, women and children Supporting them!  Never underestimate your Fans.  Nearly everyone knows the joy of being a fan.  Fans that consistently show strong Support are an integral part of a person’s success.  Fans are also an important part of YOUR TEAM!


So, how does TEAM or TEAM WORK apply to your Keto Diet?


Quite simply, you need to put together a TEAM of your own if You are to Succeed.  You need Someone to cheer you on as you eat healthy, lose excess belly fat and get into great shape!  There will be times when you need Someone to back you up.  Someone telling you that you are doing a good job.  Someone that will keep you energized, motivated and inspired to continue in your journey.



Glad you asked!

Your TEAM members in Your Keto Zone will include:


  1. Good Mental Attitude
  2. Good Physical Behavior
  3. Good Emotional Support
  4. Good Social Support
  5. Good Spiritual Support
  6. Good Recreation Time


You may find additional TEAM members to add as you go along.  That’s just fine.  I want you to understand that in order to become Successful, you need the Right TEAM members.


1. Good Mental Attitude:

It is imperative to keep the Right mental attitude.  Quit calling yourself nasty names.  No more rude talk about your size, how much you weigh, or bad-mouthing any body part.  JUST STOP IT!


2. Good Physical Behavior:

You must get physical.  I’m not saying you have to climb mountains.  If you want to, that’s great, go ahead and climb.  But in plain speak, your body needs exercise of some type.  The two types that I have in mind are aerobic and resistance training or weights training.


Aerobic training will improve your body’s cardiovascular system in absorption and transporting oxygen.  At a minimum Walk.  Resistance training or weights training will provide strength and endurance.  Even if you have weaknesses in certain areas of your body, you can find something to do that will not cause pain, and will strengthen you.  You don’t need fancy equipment or clothing to do this.  You can start by lifting a can of soup in each hand if you have to.


3. Good Emotional Support:

Don’t let yourself fall apart when people or obstacles challenge you.  Equally important is to not beat yourself up for imperfections or slower results.  Each person is unique in their own way of what they can do and how they perform.  At a minimum, JOIN US and find Encouragement, Inspiration and lots of Love at


www.Your Keto Journey.com.


4. Good Social Support:

Don’t shut yourself off from the rest of the world just because you are doing what it takes to get healthy, stay healthy and lose excess pounds.  In the beginning of your Keto Journey you may find that you must stay out of restaurants for a brief period of time, until you learn how to order your meal correctly without blowing up your eating plan.  Find restaurants that will allow you to order smaller portions, sides of just what you want, or allow modest substitutions.  Then go out and enjoy yourself with friends and family.


Secondly, do not allow people to brow beat you into cheating or taking a cheat day on your eating plan.  If you are truly on a mission to eat well and lose excess belly fat, DON’T CAVE OR CATER to well-meaning friends or family who tease or tempt you to do things that will not bring your desired results.  They will still love you in spite of your dogged determination.


Third, DON’T ALLOW ANYONE to cause you to feel like a freak because YOU CHOOSE to stay healthy.  Remember – no person can make you feel bad.  It is you, who allows yourself to feel bad, based on what a person says to you.  So, DON’T ALLOW IT.


5. Good Spiritual Support:

God did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  2 Timothy 1:7.

Furthermore, Philippians 4:13 says that you Can do all things through Christ Who strengthens you!

So don’t let anyone frighten you or tell you that you’ll never stick to a successful eating plan!!!


6. Good Recreation Time:

Make it a strong emphasis in your life to get proper refreshment and rejuvenation of mind, body, and spirit.  This will cause your other TEAM members (listed in steps 1-5) to come alive and truly work together as a TEAM for You!  Your Fans will cheer you on to VICTORY.  When this happens, not if, but WHEN this happens, you will:


  1. Refuse to give up your own power and determination.
  2. Share joyfully in the successes of Others.
  3. Know and See that what you are doing is WORTH THE EFFORT.
  4. Drop old bad habits that have been causing you problems.
  5. Establish new good habits that will enable you to SUCCEED.


Always See and be Thankful for good results.  No matter what size they are.  One of my own sayings of Encouragement to Self is this:

    Journal of an Opioid Addict: A Letter to Mom and Dad

    Book two in the Conversations You Hear Series

    Many people have addictions.  Some addictions are easily seen and noticed by others.  Other addictions are hidden for years, if not decades, and are not seen or noticed by others until the person with the addiction admits two things.

     First that an addiction exists.  And second, that it is nearly impossible to kill an addiction without the loving help of other people who are willing to do whatever it takes to help the addict bury the addiction and live without it.

     This is the story of a young woman who prefers to remain anonymous.  She does this for personal reasons.  She speaks from her heart and does not wish to be judged by you, the reader.

     The young woman has made a commitment to herself and also toward others who find themselves in this humbling place of hurting oneself and not really understanding why until you come out the other side of your addiction and take a long, hard look back.  Looking back is not a way to blame others for what happened to you as much as it is recognition of why you made the choices that you did.

     Many times a young person makes choices based on fear.  Fear of the unknown.  Fear of the known.  Fear of what you think you know.  Medical professionals trained in this area of study understand that fear is irrational.  A perceived danger or threat.  Frightening facts or evidence that appear real.

     A person’s response to fear varies.  One of these response variations is an addiction.  An addiction as described by a young person, untrained in the fields of medicine, psychology or psychiatry could be described as “something I do to keep my fear at bay”.

     A young person living in fear often will not be able to clearly state his or her feelings.  He or she simply knows that there is something that is bothering them on a regular basis that needs to be taken care of.  So they experiment.  They try things to make themselves feel better.  More secure.  Protected from danger.

     Once he or she finds what “works” for them, they use this behavior as a way to get free of their problem.  Notice the words “free” and “their problem”.  Yes, this is a very personal event for many young people.  It is their way of dealing with a problem that they have.  They know no other way of curtailing the situation.  So as long as the addiction works for them, they will continue the course of action.

     Fear comes in many shapes and forms.  This young woman’s fear came from growing up in what many would call a “normal family atmosphere”.  Only to some children, what is called normal by others is far from normal for her.

     As listeners, conversations have a way of awakening our senses.  When we listen to the conversations of others, we have been granted access into another person’s very personal view of a topic.  Be that view right or wrong, it is important to hear what the person has to say.  If we desire to lovingly help people, especially young people, then it is important that we listen to the “cry” of their heart.  Without judgment.  Without interruption.  Just listen.  Listening is the first step.
