The top tips to reach your fitness goals are here and not as hard as you may think!
Do them all at once or take baby steps and do one or two at a time. These are YOUR goals and YOUR in charge!
Don’t worry about the whole year…start with today and they won’t seem overwhelming.
1. You can’t out train a poor diet.
You have heard it or maybe even said it yourself. I started exercising but still eat what I want. Well, that may work for awhile but unless you have been consistently eating really clean and continuously mindful of eating healthy, chances are your efforts will come to a screeching halt sooner than later.
The upside… if you reach a plateau and still need to lose weight your diet is what you are going to have to change. The downside…if you reach a plateau and still have reached your fitness goals your diet is what you are to have to change.😉
2. Have a plan.
Gym. Don’t walk into the gym without one. Write up a routine or find programs on line to follow if hiring a coach isn’t in your budget.
Food. You see all those pics with the long lines of meals in their plastic containers…it’s no joke. It really works. Pick a day to plan and prepare all your meals and you will literally see the weight melt off.
3. Get your zzzz’s.
Your body recoups and grows when at rest. Your body produces growth hormones when you sleep.
Did you know even your brain grows when you are sleeping?
4. Drink your water.
5. Use an on-line food tracker to keep your diet in check.

6. Do a HIIT.
Short and sweet or short and painful, studies show your calorie burning is enhanced long after your cardio is done.
7. Make sure you get your omega 3 fats.
8. Enjoy a cheat meal every week or two.
It will help to regulate leptin levels and keep your sanity and keep you sane.
9. Ditch the booze.
It raises estrogen, lowers testosterone and slows your metabolism.
10. Choose high quality supplements for all your fitness goals.
I reached 200 pounds after having my children and several things have led me to be healthier for myself and for my family; countless fitness DVDs, a gym membership, leading a weight management class at my church, and a personal trainer telling me I had good symmetry.
My husband and I have competed in several competitions from 2012 to 2015. Every competition brought more information on how to be better and stronger both mentally and physically.
I have learned many things on my fitness journey, but the one thing that I hear over and over no matter what size they are is the self-talk that many women tell themselves regarding the way they see themselves. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have the tools and wisdom of the people around me to help women of all shapes and dynamics to help them on their journey.
