You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? From boosting your mood and self confidence in that little black dress to improving your sex life and even work life, exercise is a great way to improve your overall experience on a day to day basis.
While my clients initially come to me for exercise programs and fitness-related advice, I always get asked this question after the first couple of training sessions: What should I eat for breakfast? It's a good one.
We've all been there before: dieting and exercising hard for months, dropping 98% of that excess visceral fat, but then... WE GET STUCK?! Impossible! You've been getting 6-8 hours of sleep more often than not, have eaten well a vast majority of the time and continue pushing your threshold in the gym. What gives? Aren't those three things the keys to avoiding a plateau and continual success? The answer: Yes and No.
KEEP your eye on the prize... your pain free, healthy, long life, of functional freedom. Do you know the NO.1 fear in older adults is losing their functional freedom. That's why in my classes my SUPER SENIORS ROCK IT HARD, and that's no lie.They got more stamina than some young people. They got drive, focus and determination to keep going as long as they can. My oldest SUPER SENIOR IS 89 years YOUNG. HOW'S THAT. ♥
If you’re like many women, yourbreakfast and lunch tend to be light and you rake in most of your protein at dinner via lean options like chicken or fish. On paper that sounds like a healthy diet plan, but it turns out that loading most of your protein into one sitting may not be getting you the results you’re after.
Fat loss eating is different from a weight loss approach to food. Weight loss places a sole focus on calories. Fat loss focuses on calories too, but puts more focus on hormones. Fat loss is about eating in a way that controls the natural compensatory nature of your metabolism. Metabolic sensations such as hunger, cravings, and energy are dramatically influenced by hormones. Balance your hormones and these sensations too will stabilize resulting in less food intake without much conscious effort.
Fall is my favorite season, but the change in weather and daylight can throw your health and fitness routine out the window. Don't let the cooler season get the best of you. Lazy days of Summer are behind us and the busy hustle and bustle of Fall is here! Between work, the holidays, grocery shopping, errands, etc., it's easy to push exercise to the bottom of the list. It should be just as much a priority as any other appointment you have. Put exercise on the calendar!
