Willpower and Motivation are NOT the Answer. Do this instead

The reality of 2024 setting in as your goals feel more out of reach every day? This is nothing to be ashamed of — besides, guilt is one of the most destructive emotions there is. It's early in the year. If you get back on track now, you can still make this a kickass year for your body and overall health!

I didn’t feel like working out

  You know those days when you finally leave work…… and the LAST thing you want to do is hit the gym, cook dinner, and tackle your never-ending to-do list? Have you ever thought about what happens when you say the heck with it… and  DON’T  do those things? In the moment it feels like a relief.But later? It can feel like a real letdown.Because choosing NOT to slack off — to do the thing anyway, especially after a tough day —  is where real growth happens . Every time you choose to push through, you're not just working toward your goals…You're also building mental resilience and self-efficacy (your belief in yourself to follow through). And that’s not even talking about how your workout can actually boost your mood and energy levels because of the feel-good hormones released during exercise. These small victories — the moments when you choose what's good for you over what's easy — add up to big changes. So, next time you feel like ditching your routine in favor of the cou

7 Secrets Behind Every Successful Diet

The secret behind the effectiveness of different diets, despite differing principles and guidelines, lies in a few core concepts that are common across all successful diet plans. These seven fundamental elements provided are found in all successful diets when weight loss and improved health is the goal. 1. Caloric Deficit At the heart of most diets is the principle of a caloric deficit. Whether it's a low-carb diet like Keto, a low-fat diet, or intermittent fasting, the underlying mechanism for weight loss is consuming fewer calories than the body expends. This deficit forces the body to use stored fat for energy, leading to weight loss. 2. Nutritional Balance Many effective diets emphasize a balance of nutrients. They promote a varied intake of essential nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals. For instance, Mediterranean and plant-based diets focus on whole foods, offering a rich array of nutrients essential for the body's overall

The one-two punch for fast fat loss

  How many times have you looked in the mirror and wished that you could make your belly fat vanish before your eyes? Unsightly fat around the stomach is one of the most common body frustrations that I come across with my clientele. No one wants a chubby stomach! Unfortunately for most, losing body fat is a slow and steady process, rather than an instantaneous fix. However…I do have an extremely effective method for losing belly fat faster than ever, and I’d like to share it with you today… The One-Two Punch For Fast Fat Loss.  This deadly, fat-incinerating method fights fat simultaneously on two separate fronts for maximum effectiveness: your sugar intake and your high intensity workouts. First Punch:  This is the punch that requires zero extra effort on your part! In fact all you have to do is NOT do something that you’re currently doing! You stop consuming refined sugar, in all its forms. This means no sodas, no desserts, no packaged snacks, no candy, no mocha latte

What’s YOUR version of 100%?

 What if you woke up tomorrow and decided to give the day your VERY BEST? And by that I mean, you intentionally decide to give everything you do 100% of your attention, focus, and effort. And then you BRING IT. This isn’t something you can do EVERY day — because you’d burn out — but once in a while? It’s AMAZING. Here’s why: It helps you see what 100% of your effort looks and feels like It helps you pinpoint your priorities and what truly needs your full attention vs. what doesn’t It keeps you focused and in the moment  It helps you push the needle forward on what you’re capable of — no slacking allowed And it doesn’t have to be for an entire day! Even spending just an hour or two in “100%” mode a few times a week can yield HUGE results.  It can also help you level up because you’ll be able to easily recognize when you’re not operating at your absolute best. Another thing I love: you get to decide what your 100% looks like. Example

The real reason you skipped your workout

  It’s normal to exercise less this time of year. Most will blame this on all of the holiday activities that they have to take care of. The parties, the shopping, the baking, the wrapping… ( For a detailed action plan on how to Survive the holidays AND still lose weight.. read THIS ) While it’s true that there’s a lot to do, that’s not really why you aren’t working out. You’ve been just as busy in the past and you managed to keep your workouts consistent. So what is it? Why did you skip your workout? It’s because of stress. The stress is real this time of year. Obligations and expectations are coming at you from every angle, and somehow you are supposed to juggle it all with a smile on your face. It’s a setup for mismanaged stress to wreak havoc on your healthy routine. Mismanaged stress leads to overeating, overdrinking, headaches, weight gain, anxiety, fatigue and trouble sleeping. All of this overwhelm makes the idea of heading to the gym for a
