Preparing for the Holiday Season

Summer is over, and these next few months can be challenging if you are trying to stay in shape. Let’s face it, it is going to be colder and darker. That is going to make it less enjoyable to get up and go to the gym and workout. Also, there are going to be many temptations with what to eat. What should you do?

First thing is realize that there is always going to be temptation no matter what time of year it is. There is always going to be a reason to cheat on your diet or not go to the gym. This is true for winter as well as summer. There will always be holiday’s, birthday’s, new restaurants to go to etc. And once you realize this, you can see that this time of year is not that different from any other time of year.

Next, don’t be afraid to adjust. You may prefer to run outside while the weather is warm. But now that it is cooling off, you do not have to quit, just run on a tread mill at a gym. Or spend the next few months working on indoor activities.

Finally, not everyday has to be a cheat day. Yes there are many more holidays during this time of year. That is why they call this the holiday season. But you do not have to cheat between the holidays.

The truth is, you do not have to repeat the same behavior that many do year after year. They do not lose the weight they say they are going to lose over the summer, then, in discouragement, say to themselves, “well it’s the holidays, I’ll just get back on it after the new year.” But how often does that work?

Break the cycle and accept the truth that you can be in even better shape by January 2nd than you are now! The holidays season is upon us. What will your decision be?

What You Need to Know About Intermittent Fasting

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to write a quick post and let you all know that my book on intermittent fasting is now out! I’m so excited. As many of you know, I have lost almost 100 pounds. What you may not know is that a good portion of that came as a result of IF. In fact, I found IF when I was gaining weight again. I was getting fatter and did not know what to do. IF re-ignited my fat burning hormones and revd-up my metabolism. I share all about it in my new booklet.

More good news. It’s free for those who are on Amazon Prime! And only 2.99 for those who are not! So don’t wait. Click the link below and get the book!

One Big Mistake That Will Ruin Your New Years Resolution to Get in Shape

As a health coach, I see a lot of people who want to get in shape for the new year. It’s natural. It’s a new year filled with new promises and new possibilities. It seems like nothing is impossible.

There is a lot of truth in that last statement–nothing seems impossible! But wait. Haven’t you been here before? Haven’t we all? I remember telling myself every January 1st. that this year would be the year I finally got in shape. But by the following December, I found myself in the same if not worse shape than when I started. So what’s gone wrong and how can we fix it?

The truth is that it is not just one thing but a bunch of small things that that add up to failure. However, if there is one encapsulating issue that if addressed would solve most problems, it would be this: No plan!

No Plan 

Instead of having a plan people say things like, “I’m just going to try harder,” or “I’m going to be more healthy,” and “I just need to lose a few pounds.”

The problem with this is that it is too vague. In what ways are you going to try harder? What does “more healthy” mean? And how much weight do you actually need to lose? The truth is without a specific plan you are more than likely going to find yourself in the same place by next year.

The plan you choose should be specific and should cover an eating protocol, a workout protocol, and psychological conditioning. You want to keep as motivated as possible on all levels of fitness. This includes what you eat, how you move your body, and your state of mind.

Realistic

Your plan should be realistic. It should include a time when you can eat your favorite foods, and a time off of exercising for rest.

It should also include more than one way to track your weight-loss progress. For example, the scale is a great way to see how much you have lost but this should not be your only means of measuring your success. Another way is by having a goal shirt or dress that you want to fit into. Often you may not be making progress on the scale but you may be fitting better into your clothes.

Finally, let me extent an invitation to you from Advanced Weight-Loss Resources. If you are looking for lasting success in the area of health and fitness, please contact us and let’s get you to your goal weight this year!

I Could Not Believe The Scale 8/20/16

The good news is I’m down to 204. That is two pounds from last week. And it was very unexpected. I was planning on maintaining or being up a pound or so, but I really did not expect to lose weight. I cannot remember the last time I weighed that low.

Over the last 24 hours there is really not much to tell. I have gone a full day without eating to there is nothing to report there.

After work I ran my 4 miles. I made more than 3 without stopping. The last was walking and running. I plan on trying to make it to 4 without stopping and even upping my run by a mile. After the run, I did a light bicep, shoulder, and back workout.

Anyway here is a picture of me in my goal-shirt. The first one is from today, the next is from last week, and the final one is from where I started.

I was really happy with my performance today as well as the results. I can go into my rest and free day without shame and feeling like I earned it.
