Results or Excuses

Just about everybody says they really want results BUT they seem to find excuses so easily. Of course there will be challenges in your health and fitness journey – just like any endeavor. They typically range from busy work and social schedules to injury or trauma. Can’t find the time in your day for a

Gaining Trust

You don’t gain trust by asking for it. You earn trust by consistently demonstrating that you’re worthy of it…aka, trustworthy. Consider a time where someone has said, “trust me.” Didn’t that create doubt for you? Why trust based on a request? Those that you really trust (I hope) are the people in your life who

We’re Animals Too!

Do you know why cougars (not mature women chasing younger men) don’t eat berries? It’s the same reason that deer don’t eat chicken.

Keeping it Real

Realistic limitations and actions are much easier to adopt, practice and become habitual. This is why it’s so important to set up your plan using realistic or easily achievable guidelines.

Let’s Talk About…Carbs

So maybe they’re less interesting than sex but they’re still important. First of all ‘carbs’ include but are not limited to bread, pasta, rice and the often villainized potatoe. I’m a little sensitive about that one because potatoes are one of my fave foods! Carbohydrates or ‘carbs’ include all of the edible plants AND things

Your Plan Must Suit You

It’s super hard to achieve anything without a plan. Even getting out of bed in the morning requires pulling back the bedding then sitting and standing up. You just keep doing it because it’s a well established habit. The same applies to your weight loss goal. You need a simple plan that is easy (so
