{Day 30} Let’s Check Ourselves Before We Wreck Ourselves

Okay — that’s a old school Dr. Dre song, but I love it none the less! We are 30 days into our challenge we have 1 more day and I  {Day 30} Lets Check Ourselves Before We Wreck Ourselves want to do another check in to see where you are now!!

Are you stuck in a rut or are you like Stella and you’ve found your groove! Here’s a quick test.

You’ve found your groove if you:

  • Feel awesome after a workout
  • started to feel less stressed
  • have seen your mood has improved
  • don’t stress about what to eat
  • don’t stress about your workouts
  • head to the gym instead of the couch and you no longer think its a chore (okay sometimes it is, but you know you’ll feel better)
  • are motivated to hit your goals
  • completed more than 50% of this challenge and determined to finish the rest of it

Somebody reboot me please if you:

  • struggling to reach your goals
  • working hard and not seeing any results
  • are feeling unmotivated
  • been focused on the same goals for a while and unable to get started
  • feel like crap for hours or days after a workout
  • feel guilty for missing workouts or not eating cleanly
  • hit a plateau and have been stuck for a while

If you’ve got your groove — rock on and good luck to you!!! If you need a reboot, let’s discuss how restart. The best thing about this challenge is that you can do it over and over again. I recommend starting from day 1 and taking it day by day. Don’t beat yourself up. We all have things that come up in our lives that may have prevented you from doing this challenge daily, but we just need to keep plugging away.  Do you need some accountability? Do you need a more formal program? That’s where wellness coaching can come in handy.  I will nudge you to explore what is most important to you right now, we’ll talk through your challenges and work to navigate obstacles so that you meet your health and fitness goals quicker and have the confidence that you will succeed.  To learn more about my programs, click here.

{Day 27} The Art Of The Start!

When you think about starting something new – {Day 27} The Art Of The Start!

  • do you feel excited
  • do you feel like you are stepping onto a large platform about to dive into shark invested waters
  • are you one of those folks we are always starting something and not finishing it
  • are you someone who says you are going to do it and boom it done!

2 snaps up to you if you are the later. So many of us struggle with getting start and actually finishing. Today is all about how to keep that moving forward. The biggest reason people fail at creating and sticking to new habits is that they don’t keep doing it. That seems obvious: if you don’t keep doing a habit, it won’t really become a habit. So what’s the solution to this obvious problem? Find a way to keep doing it. When you look at it this way, the key to forming a habit is not how much you do of the habit each day (exercise for 30 minutes, eat 5 meals, etc.), but whether you do it at all. So the key is just getting started. Let me emphasize that: the key to forming a habit is starting each day. What do I mean by starting? If you want to form the habit of meditation, just park your tushy down in a quiet area each day. If you want to form the habit of running, just lace up your shoes and get out the door. If you want to form the habit of writing, just sit down, you can write it out long hand or type on your computer. Form the habit of starting, and you’ll get good at forming habits.

Easier Said Then Done — How Do You Get Started?

What happens when you wake up and don’t feel like doing yoga or heading to your cycle class? Let’s first take a look at why you don’t feel like starting. It’s usually for one or both of these reasons:

  1. You are comfortable with what you’re doing (doing something online, sleeping, just sitting down =)), and the habit you’d like to start  it’s too hard – aka not comfortable. We cling to the comfortable. We love our comfort zone!!!
  2. It’s too difficult to get started — to do the habit, you have to buy stuff or find someone who will help or teach you, or drive 20 minutes to the gym, or go get a bunch of ingredients, etc. — This is when the excuse monster rears its ugly head.

Those are the main two reasons, and really they’re the same thing. So the solution is to make it easier and more comfortable to do the habit, and easier to get started. Some ways to do that:

  • Focus on the smallest thing — just getting started. You don’t have to do even 5 minutes — just start. That’s so easy it’s hard to say no.
  • Prepare everything you need to get started earlier. So if you need some equipment, get it ready well before you have to start, like the evening before, or in the morning if you have to do it in the afternoon, or at least an hour before. Then when it’s time to start, there is no barrier.
    • I lay out my gym clothes the night before so all I need to do is put them on my body.
    • I make my shopping list on Friday night and head to the grocery store on Saturday afternoon so I have food in the house for the week.
    • I put my workouts in my calendar weekly so I know when I’m working out.
  • Make the habit something you can do where you are, instead of having to drive there.
    • Can you buy videos and do workouts at home
    • Can you pull out your ipod and just dance for 20 minutes
    • Can you grab stuff out of your cupboard and make a new recipe?
  • If you have to drive or walk somewhere, have someone meet you there. Then you’re less likely to stay home (or at work), and more likely to go — and going there is the same thing as getting started. This works because you’re making it less comfortable to not start — the idea of leaving a friend waiting for you at the gym or park is not a comfortable one.
    • I recently started going to a cycle studio where if I don’t cancel the night before I lose my money.
    • Sign up for personal training sessions
    • Work with a coach on accountability
  • Tell people you’re going to do the habit of starting your habit every day for 30 days. Having this kind of accountability motivates you to get started, and makes it less comfortable not to start.
    • This is the main reason why I started this challenge to help you get moving on a goal you may have been putting off.
  • Start with the easiest version of the habit, so that it’s easy to start. For example, if you want to form the habit of reading, don’t start with War and Peace, but with the Shopaholic Series or whoever you find fun and easy to read. If you want to start yoga, don’t start with a head to a 90 min power yoga, head to a 60 min to class or find a website that shows you a few salutations.

Make it as easy as possible to start, and hard to not start. Tell yourself that all you have to do is lace up your shoes and get out the door, and you’ll have a hard time saying no. Once you’ve started, you’ll feel good and probably want to continue (though that’s not a necessity). Learn to love that moment of brilliance, and your habit troubles fade like the night.

{Day 14} Doubt!

Call it what you will. Doubt, self sabotage, fear. What have — at the end of the day it paralyzes you and keeps you from moving forward. A few months ago I read the Slight Edge and the big take away  {Day 14} Doubt! from that book was two fold — easy to do and easy not to.

Not making the changes you want to make that falls into the easy to do category. Looking at yourself with regret, anger and embarrassment, again, easy to do.

Now flip the coin, how would it you feel about yourself, when you are putting forth your best efforts to meet OR exceed your goals.  Now that’s not easy to do, you’ll need to set a plan and take action toward your goals.

Here are 2 great articles I wrote in the past the can further help you with doubt.

Are You Willing?
Doubt

Doubt can only be removed by action. — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Here we are 14 days in take what has been holding you back?? Have you been following along faithfully, have you been taking action on the homework. Or are you sitting back saying I’ll get to it.

Today’s assignment

  1. Write down the 1 thing that is holding you back from taking actions on your goals you set during this challenge.
  2. Now write down the 2 small actions that you can take in the next 48 hours to get moving forward.

{Day 13} Dedication. Consistency and Focus!

I know first hand consistency is really hard. I understand it from a personal point of view.  When I was competing consistency was a major requirement. Click here to read this article. I also understand this Affirmations for children I can do whatever i focus my mind on {Day 13} Dedication. Consistency and Focus! from my clients who get ready for big events — weddings, vacations, reunions, fitness competitions, etc and then go back to being inconsistent. This yo yo effect makes losing weight that much harder.

A well thought out fitness plan will go a long way in helping you to reach your goals. To achieve consistency, you will want to think about the types of exercise that you can do on a regular basis. A consistent workout regimen reduces stress and increases your mental well being. When you work out regularly, your body releases endorphins that enhance your mood. Sticking to a regular exercise regimen will keep you to feel revived both physically and mentally. When you exercise with consistency, your muscles will develop gradually and the body that you always dreamed about will materialize.

It’s also important to design a training program that fits your lifestyle and can be followed consistently without upsetting other areas of your life. Make sure your fitness goals aren’t so aggressive that you have don’t have time to train or are constantly running short on time that you don’t finish them. Be honest with yourself regarding how much time you have to work out. Personally I hit the wall at about 1:15min.

If you are unsure about how to put together a program hiring a coach will help with developing a customized a plan that fits your needs and lifestyle. Click here to see a list of services that I offer that may be of assistance to you.

There are three main components in any healthy lifestyle program that help you to build lean muscle, lose weight fast and lose body fat.

  1. Strength training — increase your lean, tone, body mass, thus giving a better shape to the body and increasing metabolism. Review the strength training day.
  2. Cardio — help you burn some extra calories that will lead to fat loss. More cardio doesn’t make up for bad behavior or if you missed a day. Just do your normal workout. Review cardio day.
  3. Nutrition — this is the hardest for most people. As we talked about on nutrition day, it’s about moderation and making this a lifestyle and not a diet.  Review nutrition day.

I want to spend a little more time on nutrition as this where the rubber meets the road. If you are awesome with your workouts but a mess in the kitchen you will struggle with losing weight. The biggest factor that cause you to fall of the deep end is the lack of convenience. Convenience is a big factor that effects the consistency of eating the right foods.  We’ve discussed preparing your own meals ahead of time. This will eliminate the excuses of stopping off at a fast food place because you have nothing to eat. It will eliminate the excuse for skipping a much needed meal. You can purchase a protein powder, a meal replacement packet, protein shakes in a can already mixed, and protein bars. Again these help eliminate any excuse for not getting the proper nutrition your body needs. I would still rather you eat whole foods, but something is better than nothing at all.

Train hard, train smart and train consistently. This is the only way I know how you can win the weight loss game.

There is no secret routine, there is no magical number of reps and sets. What there is, is confidence, belief, hard work on a consistent basis, and a desire to succeed. ~ Unknown

 

With fitness slow and steady wins the race, don’t come out of the gate so fast that you burn yourself out. That is one of the reasons why this course is 30 days long it’s to help develop consistency.  Remember there is no short cuts to fitness, despite what you might hear.

Today’s challenge

  1. Write down where you struggle with consistency — cardio, strength or nutrition. Name 2 things you can do to help improve that
  2. I am a very visual person. I hope you are too. So.. find motivating picture that visualizes your goal and post it somewhere that you have to see it every day. I also like post its. I post my goals all around the house so that I’m consistently reminded of what I’m working towards.

{Day 3} Gotta Have Goals!!!

Every client I work with I always ask what are your goals. What are we working towards. I typically get 2 types of response.  They either know their goals and can rattle them off gaolblocks {Day 3} Gotta Have Goals!!! or they look and me and say hmm what do you think I need to work on. When I hear the lather response I’m always taken a back. My feeling if you are seeking advice from a fitness professional you must have a goal. I can certainly help you fine tune them, but I’ve found that when you work toward a goal that isn’t yours you aren’t as passionate achieving it. Setting goals sometimes requires you to deep dig look in the mirror and really ask what you want.

So. today’s challenge is about setting SMART goals. I want you to think of goal setting as creating a road map for where you want to go. Imagine if you wanted to go to California. Would you get in the car and just drive, no.. you’d make a plan. You’d figure out do you drive, fly or some other mode of transportation. You’d map out where in California you were going and then you’d figure out when you’d want to go and for how long.  I want you to keep this analogy in your head as we dive into goal setting.

When clients set goals I typically experience two things.

1. They aren’t measurable, I hear something like this

  • Tone up
  • Get cut you know shredded
  • Lose my tummy
  • Firm up my J Lo (okay that’s my goal =))

2. They aren’t realistic

  • I’m going vacation in 2 weeks I want to drop 20 pounds
  • I want to put on 5 pounds of muscle while I’m training for a marathon
  • I’m going eat less than 1000 calories to drop weight fast

So.. when you set goals it doesn’t have to be this HUGE over the top goal. Now I’m not saying don’t set challenging goals, but set goals that you will be able to see and have some success.

We all have goals that we are trying to achieve, but are you setting SMART Goals. When you set SMART goals you are more likely to achieve them.  SMART goals are written in such a way that anyone who reads them can see what you are trying to achieve.

Here is what I’m talking about:

Specific What do I want to accomplish?
Measurable Criteria for measuring progress toward your goal
Attainable Goals are realistic and can be achieved in a specific amount of time and are reasonable.
Realistic You are both willing and able to work toward achieving this goal.
Timely Goals have a clearly defined time-frame including a target or deadline date.
Examples I will be able to do 10 pushups from my toes by January 31st.
I will bring my lunch 3 days on Mondays, Wednesday and Thursdays for the month of February.
I will do cardio for 30 minutes 5 times/week on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Is this starting to make sense?? So.. Day 3 Challenge as you can image is to set goals for this 30 day challenge.

  • They should begin with I will……
  • Now if you are feeling aggressive let’s set some goals for the next 60 and then 90 days.
  • I write a lot about goals so here are some additional reading about goals that may help you.
  • If you are stuck reach out! That’s why I’m here.

Debunking The Myth Of Eating Less To Lose Weight

One of the biggest myths about losing weight is the idea that you need to eat less in order to shed pounds. New studies have shown that this is simply not the case.  As a matter  Debunking The Myth Of Eating Less To Lose Weightof fact, it’s just the opposite. Let’s take a look at why you need to eat if you want to lose weight.

The Scientific Benefits of Breakfast

People who eat breakfast on a daily basis tend to lose weight easier. The National Weight Control Registry performed a study that showed people who eat breakfast have a better chance of maintaining a 30 pound, or more, weight loss for at least a year. Studies in The Journal of the American Dietetic Association showed similar results.

Another research group analyzed government data on over 4,000 adults and found those who ate a regular breakfast tended to take in fewer calories during the day and had a lower fat intake. They also noted that regular breakfast eaters were more likely to engage in routine exercise.

Eating breakfast also jump-starts your metabolism, says Elisabetta Politi, RD, MPH, nutrition manager for the Duke Diet and Fitness Center at Duke University Medical School.  She states; “When you don’t eat breakfast, you’re actually fasting for 15 to 20 hours, so you’re not producing the enzymes needed to metabolize fat to lose weight.” In fact, sumo wrestlers don’t eat until late in the day for the sole purpose of gaining weight.  If you don’t eat breakfast, you are actually following the sumo wrestler diet.  Now, that is a scary thought.

Keep Your Metabolism Going All Day

With the right mechanisms in place, your body will naturally burn fat.  But, what are the right mechanisms?  That’s your job;  to find your body’s balance between energy consumed and energy burned.  Metabolism is the name of the game.  When you eat healthy small meals, starting early in the morning, your metabolism is set in full swing, mobilizing and converting fat stores into energy.

When you eat breakfast along with regular snacks and small meals throughout the day, your body gets the nutrition it needs and goes to work, breaking down your food into energy.  If you wait until you’re starving before you eat anything, that gnawing feeling in your stomach is telling you something. Your body will start by robbing your muscle tissue of anything it needs first, like protein, then it will store fat because it thinks it’s in famine mode. By eating early and often, not only are you protecting the muscle that supports your frame and allows you to walk, sit, and stand, but you are also keeping your metabolism going so it works all day to give you energy.

Simple Weight Loss Tips to Get You Started:

  • Eat slowly. It takes twenty minutes for your stomach to tell your brain you are full.  Don’t eat and run.  You’ll be looking for your next meal way before you need it.
  • Pick out foods you need to chew. Try apples, whole grain hearty breads, celery, and other raw vegetables. These foods will slow down your eating and satisfy your chewing instinct. Raw nuts are another option. Just be sure to monitor the serving sizes as you snack.
  • Drink 6 to 8 glasses of cold water per day. This helps to feel full and as your body works to raise the temperature of the water, you are burning calories.  Keep bottles of water filled in the refrigerator and sip, sip, sip.
  • Eating whole fruits are much more satisfying than just drinking the juice. Keep this thought when choosing other fruits and vegetables.  Whole is usually better.
  • Have a healthy snack before you start cooking dinner. This will help with overeating while preparing the meal, and after.  Munching on celery is the perfect way to keep you satisfied while cooking. I like to munch on romaine lettuce leaves or carrot sticks.

The less you eat, the more your body protects itself and begins to go into starvation mode, holding on to more food, storing it as fat and robbing your muscles of nutrients. Make sure you eat a good breakfast to start your day right. Then, keep your metabolism working throughout the day with small meals and healthy snacks.

Stop starving yourself so your body can relax and start to lose that weight.  Adding foods instead of subtracting foods?  It’s so crazy it might just work.

Oxygen Cover Model Turns to Isagenix For Her Best Figure

Late last year, Angelike N.’s world shifted in almost every sense.

She had a baby. Her father passed away from a sudden bout of cancer. She accepted a promotion and relocated with her husband to anmarchcover 225x300 Oxygen Cover Model Turns to Isagenix For Her Best Figureother state.

So, when Oxygen magazine came knocking to see if she could get into peak condition for the cover of their March 2013 issue in just a month, it would have been easy for her to turn it down. Thankfully, she knew preparing for another Oxygen cover would be easier this time around because she had Isagenix®.

“Before a child, I used to prep and carry my food everywhere. I was a ‘chew your food’ athlete and did too much cardio and weight training,” admits 34-year-old Angelike of North Carolina. “It was a difficult lifestyle to maintain and it was made even more impossible when you have to carry a diaper bag, a stroller and manage a full-time executive career. Isagenix changed my life.”

“I trusted my Isagenix products,” continues Angelike, who started using Isagenix when her daughter Ella was six weeks old and kicked it into gear in September. “I honestly feel like the products did most of the work since my schedule was very haphazard and unpredictable.”Between late board meetings, driving long distances to support her 19 team members and working from her home office, Angelike was able to cobble together a consistent cardio and weight training regimen that included key Isagenix products such as Ionix® Supreme, Want More Energy?®, IsaPro® and IsaLean® Shakes. She skipped the boxed lunches in board meetings and on planes and opted for IsaLean Bars or an IsaLean Shake instead.

When she stepped on set for her big photo shoot with Oxygen magazine, she felt better than ever.

“I was really proud and that’s the first time I could really say that,” shares Angelike. “I was proud of all of the components of truly being ‘healthy’ coming together and shooting in my best form ever, especially after bouncing back from having a child and all of the adversity I had faced.”

Her passion for Isagenix products has caught on with her husband, mother, in-laws, and other friends. And, though she initially said “no” to creating a business because of a “lack of time,” the 2-Star Golden Circle and her husband have earned good money…even having no idea what they were doing.

She could have earned money through lucrative sponsorships with other supplement companies, but it’s never been about the money. When she’d turn over bottles and notice scary ingredients that were unhealthy, she’d turn the companies down flat.

“I just wasn’t willing to make those compromises for the sake of vanity. This is about your health,” says Angelike.

Now, as she reflects on her journey with Isagenix, she says she hopes her experience will shine a light of hope for others facing tough obstacles.

“I know people are on their knees every night praying for better health, financial freedom or freedom from their bad habit,” says Angelike. “I feel like somewhere down the line, I’ll be able to help someone else going through turmoil; to help lift them up, edify them and help them get the fight back against the things that life throws at them.”

Do You Have Discipline?

Today is all about instant gratification, if we don’t get results in a short amount of time when give up.  To survive 2013 and get MP900442363 300x199 Do You Have Discipline? lean you will need discipline. Do you have the discipline it takes to make your dreams come true?

Discipline – “Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t” – Jerry Rice. I just love this quote. Do you have your goals written down? Are they in a place where you can see them and get you fired up to take action?

Inspiration – This is what keeps you going. What inspires you to dream. I create a vision board every year and place it at my desk so that I can see if over and over again.

Sacrifice – What are you willing to let go of to make your dreams come true?

Coach – Do you have someone to help you? Someone who can give you advice and guidance when you are feeling stuck? Someone to share your highs and your lows.

Intuition – Get out of your head and do what you need to move toward your goals.

Plan – Remember the old proverb — falling to plan is planning to fail. You want to be successful with anything you need to plan. Set up your action plan and move forward.

Laser focus – Do you believe you can? Do you have the strength to stand up to the naysayers and all the negative Nelly’s

No Excuses – Are you will to put your excuses aside and make this happen? One of the best books I’ve read about this is Wayne Dyer’s book  Excuses Be Gone.

Energy – Do you have to energy to stay the course. Do you have the energy to say no to treats, the energy to get up consistently in the early AM to get your workouts in?
