A Call For Action!

As soon as you begin to take ACTION, your doubts and fears will start to lose power. Doubts often seem overwhelming. Your focused effort will make those doubts less real, until they finally disappear completely.

Are you Dense?

  Are you dense?  This phrase was coined back in the 80’s, slang meaning are you dumb, an airhead, or are you just not getting it?  While its applicability still applies, what I want to know is - is the food you’re eating dense?

Remind yourself and Stay consistent

Still with me on developing a habit?  Whatever it is make sure you do your new habit every day best advice do it at the same time.  It will be easier to remember and easier to keep on track. Don't think oh no I missed .....just get to it!  Forget the excuses and keep evolving you can do it!

Big to Small

The next time you design your workout for the day, try to structure the exercises from big to small, complex to simple. For example:  Start your strength training workout with the bigger muscle groups such as the pectoralis major (pecs) and latissimus dorsi (lats). Then, progress towards the smaller muscle groups like your shoulders. This is done because the smaller muscles are involved with the exercises you do to workout the bigger muscle groups.

Healthy Eating

 Its time to kick those diets and become Healthy! I know that this seems really scary but its not. The best way to achieve a healthy lifestyle is to go at it one day at a time. Start by doing things that you know you can handle. Trying to cut out everything at once is not the answer, it is overwhelming and extremely hard to stick to. This can end up putting you right back at square one. Here are a few things that you can start off with. 

Epiphany

I finally made it back to cycle and Turbo Kick classes after more than 6 weeks off letting my knee heal.  I figured I'd start with cycle as it should be less impact on my knee.  We do sit but we also stand on the bikes so I was hoping to survive.  Class went great - no issues with my knees.

SSS Starting Stuff

Starting Thoughts: Where are you in your journey? I'm in a transition...I've been working hard, just not quite to a place of "peace" with my performance, consistency and discipline. I've made good progress in my fitness level the past 3 months-- yet, I want more. I'm on the attack to get MORE!

Meal Planning for a BUSY Schedule on the RUN

I like to cook for the most part, but I don't enjoy cooking when we are going in 3 or 4 different directions 3 or 4 nights a week due to volleyball, jr. high football , and high school football schedules.  I can say, in all honesty, that I have survived an entire football season sitting in the stands for countless evening hours without EVER visiting the concession stand! HOW?  I plan ahead. PLAN, PLAN, PLAN!  

Can You THINK Yourself Thin?

I read A-L-O-T of quotes, articles, magazines, research.... from fitness professionals.  Regardless of what meal plan (clean eating, low carb, high protein, Atkins, Paleo, ....) or exercise routines (cardio, strength training, cross fit, zumba, boot camps....) they do or promote - a common thread seems to be attitude.
