About the episode:

Today I bring you episode two of our series on the art of the streak. Last week we heard from Marcus Smith about how he managed to complete 30 marathons in 30 days just months after being hit by a truck and shattering his scapula and multiple ribs. If you haven’t listened to that episode yet, check it out now!

This week’s guest, David Robinson, inspired me to start a few streaks of my own. It’s actually because of David that I realized the power of the streak as a motivating tool to develop consistent habits. And that’s HUGE because when I asked you, the listeners, to share your top struggles with nutrition, some variation of ‘staying consistent’ or ‘staying accountable’ made up 60% of the responses.

So if that’s you, keep your ears open AND make sure you download the calorie and macro calculator worksheet at beyondmacros.com/worksheet as a starting point for your nutrition. When you do, we’ll give you the opportunity to choose your goals & learning objectives and the email content you receive will be specific to your needs. We’ll also send you a streak behavior planning worksheet a few days after you download the macro calculator.

And if you are struggling with consistency and accountability, just a gentle reminder that we are nutrition coaches, and we have both 1-1 and online coaching that are great starting points for getting the accountability you need. Our coaching is a “different from other approaches in that it is relational and intentional”, in the words of Online coaching client Dakota. You can learn all about our online coaching at
