The Power of Books!

0 Comment

In our 25 days of fitness today is day 9.  My tip for the day is read a book.  Why?  There is no better way to change your thinking than to read a good motivational inspiring book.  I just finished a book called Mind Gym yesterday by Gary Mack and David Casstevens.  It was all […]

Rest Days

0 Comment

When you start or change any exercise program, make sure to schedule in your rest and recovery days.  I always tell my clients to listen to their bodies on a daily basis.  Sometimes you may work so hard that you forget to figure this in.  For any goal that you have, your recovery days are […]

Strategy for fat burn

0 Comment

When you think of burning fat, you think of what?  Cardio?  Weight training?  Cutting carbs? Did you know that up to 30 minutes of exercise will use glucose (carbohydrates) as the primary energy source?  When our body is depleted of these stores it will convert fat for energy.  This process however requires a lot of […]

Putting it on the top of your list

Are you one that notoriously struggles with trying to establish a regular fitness routine??  Did you ever notice that the things at the bottom of your priority list are the things that get pieced in at the end (if they even fit)?  Think about it, if exercise is not a priority on your list, everything […]

Monday Motivation

Most of us have so much more to do during the holiday season and unfortunately neglect our workouts.  This is a big mistake, due to all the extra calories and stress we have this time of year.  Even if you can only squeeze 30 minutes of physical activity per day, make sure to make it […]

A little observation…

I’ll admit it, I’m not the most organized person but this has been something I’ve been working on for the past year.  It was my new years resolution to utilize my agenda more and write things down.  My husband on the other hand is extremely organized and has helped me work on those challenges.  What […]

Intensity?

We live in a day where nutrition is hard and workouts are even harder.  Is all that necessary though?  Life is all about balance (which I preach all the time).  You can’t eat what you want and then punish yourself with exercise.  How will that leave you in 20 years?  Not in a healthy spot […]

Emotional Attachment

Did you ever wonder what is the secret to change?  Let’s face it, change is hard to do.  If you are trying to workout on a regular basis and you haven’t achieved that yet, change has not happened for you.  We all work and move with our emotions.  Our feelings make up our actions.  This […]

Don’t waste your time

If you are a human, there are days, weeks, or even months where the unexpected happens and interrupts your routine.  What do you do when that happens?  Do you wait for an even time to restart (a Monday or the begining of the next month)?  This is a HUGE mistake when you are striving for […]
