So we are coming to the end of 12 week weight loss contest where I train. U have been blessed with to amazing groups of people. They are all individuals but work as a team and sometimes as teams united. I am sure that some sort of "Tribe" has formed. I hope that they don't hate me by now and still include me and that I am not shunned from this new "Tribe".
Arguably the biggest obstacle to getting in shape or maintaing a fitness program is motivation. I have seen countless clients come in for a month straight and then cancel for three weeks in a row. If you have a demanding work schedule, kids, school, or health concerns then you can relate to having a lack of motivation.
Well, it's been a crazy few days, clients and classes, kids home on spring break, working on video productions and trying to stay sane, eat well, fit in exercise, and of course, my blog! I miss it when I don't get in touch with you all out there for more than a few days, so here I am, even though it's just a quick piece.
There are times when we focus so much on our jobs, other things in life and doing for other people that we completely forget about the person who needs us most“ourselves!
To become and be the best person YOU can be, you MUST love yourself from the deepest part of your being—completely, unconditionally, and faithfully. Listen to your heart’s desires.
A good pair of walking shoes and you are out the door! My Chocolate Lab loves to go out and definitely loves when I walk! Pets need their exercise too so don't forget about incorporating them into your outdoor workouts.
The Institute of Medicine now regards the adequate levels of sodium for people ages 9 to 50 years old to be 1,500 mg per day. For children age 1 to 3 years old the adequate intake is 1,000 mg and kids 4 to 8 years old it's 1,200 mg of sodium. Those age 51 to 70 should get 1,300 mg per day, and those over 71 need 1,200 mg each day. All age groups have a tolerable upper intake level of 2300 mg. But it's easy to get too much sodium when you eat at restaurants. When I read about these high sodium meals even I was shocked...

Sounds so counter productive doesn't it? A little lazy. a little selfish. Yet in reality, you must sleep at least 7-8 hours every night to aid in fitness and overall health. In bed is when the magic happens! (not THAT kind of magic- we're talking weight loss people!) ;)
So what is going on while you are sleeping? The body creates a natural growth hormone that keeps your metabolism buzzing and tells your body to burn stored fat. This hormone can only be produced in the deep stages of the sleep cycle. So your 4-5 hours a night won't cut it. You are hindering your own hard efforts.
