You know I like to focus on the positive, right? Well, I’m about to tell you how NOT to reach your goals this year. Because there’s one big mistake you can make that can push you into a HUGE trap – and you’ll end up feeling frustrated, burned out, and like a quitter.
Ready to make some serious progress on your goals in 2023?
I’ve got an exercise that’ll help in a BIG way. Ready? Let’s get into it!
Do me (and yourself) a favor! Take a sec and relax your shoulders and your jaw. Right now!
Then, draw in a nice slow breath … and feel those muscles relax even MORE.
It’s one of the most anticipated emails of the year … because it’s got all of the details for this year’s 12 Days of Fitmas Workout! This is a special holiday workout that will fire up your metabolism and help keep you on track with your goals.
It’s not just you — a study by Healthline found that when it comes to health and finances, not only do 44% of people think the holidays are “somewhat stressful” and 18% of them classified them as “very stressful”!
Did you know that how we think about what we eat – i.e., “healthy” or “diet” or “low cal” “small portion” or “large portion” – can actually play a role in how hungry we get?
As the holidays are now in full swing, in order to help you celebrate but STILL stay on track with your goals …
I’ve got a quick list of healthy swaps – and my #1 swap might even come in handy today!
Over the years, I’ve had tons of clients tell me they were going to take the holidays off from their workouts and they’d see me again in January. And then in January, they said they wished they hadn’t taken the break!
They felt like they were starting over again.
I came across a pretty cool study I wanted to share with you because it’s really important this time of year.
The study was published in the Journal of Health Communication. In it, researchers tracked 704 people in an online weight-loss program.
Can you imagine making major progress on your top fitness goal in the next 8 weeks? …there are only 8 weeks left in 2022 … Which means now is the best time to make that happen!
I’ve got a big confession for you today … and yes, this happens to coaches, too. The other day I was NOT FEELING my workout. I don’t know why… but I was dreading it.
The other day I met with a client who was SO frustrated because it felt like everything in her life was working against her goals. She has a demanding job … her family life is hectic … AND she is taking on some new responsibilities with her aging parents. “There is absolutely no time for ME,” she told me.
Did you know that reports of anxiety are up 25% over the past couple of years? I personally think this number is low since anxiety shows up in different ways for different people … and it’s not always easy to recognize it as anxiety.
Has this ever happened to you before? You’re planning to work out after work… but right when it’s time to leave, you start to think….You’re too tired…The weather is too cold/hot/nice/cruddy…You’re hungry…You have too much to do…You’re stressed….You’re not sure what workout to do…You really just want to watch something on Netflix, etc.
Have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule? It can apply to just about everything in your life … including your health and fitness. It’s an idea that works for a LOT of people. Not only does it get them out of the “all-or-nothing” mindset with food and health – but it’s also really simple.
A few years ago I remember seeing a chart of “burpee equivalents” for food. Do you remember it? A cookie = 141 burpees, a small meatball sub = 402 burpees, a Big Mac = 506 burpees…
Do you love “hacks” when it comes to fitness and health? I know I do! Well, these fruits and veggies below can help power up your workouts and recovery in a big way …And I bet the next time you see them in the grocery store, you’ll look at them in a whole new light!
Shocking stat! Only 1 out of every 10 people eat enough of this food group … Even though these foods help keep your heart healthy … your skin glowing … your energy high … your hormones balanced … and your tummy happy.
Raise your hand if you love a “how am I doing?” quiz. (I know I love them!) I’ve got a little fitness & health self-audit for you today to help keep you on track with your healthy habits. This can be a good self-check to see if you need to double down on your healthy habits after the past few months.
Do you know one of the TOP reasons people have for NOT being able to commit to a regular fitness routine?
It’s because they say they “don’t have enough time.” So I’m going to break down some ways you can find that time!
