Follow on me while I do my OWN 7+7 REBOOT - Whole Food Detox. One week down, one to go!
The warm weather is fast approaching. You can smell it in the air. Literally. AND at the gym. People have recommitted themselves to their fitness regime in preparation for summer attire. Most of us have the workouts down but what about the nutrition?
For optimal body fat reduction and weight loss, nutrition is key. The magic formula is 80% nutrition 20% exercise. Don't get me wrong, you NEED to exercise but if you're taking in too many calories, you won't see the fruits of your labor and those extra pounds won't go anywhere. You might be building up some serious muscle but if there's a layer of body fat on top of it.....
It's actually pretty easy. Stick to 5 oz. portions of lean proteins, lots of low carbohydrate foods such as vegetables (Think leafy greens or really anything green), 1/2 to 3/4 cup "good" starches (think sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa) and 2 to 4 tablespoons of fat per meal (EVOO, raw nuts and avocado). 1 to 2 servings of fruit per day can serve as dessert. This might sound rigid but it's really not. And it's even easier if you try.....
Have you ever felt like you wanted to push the RESET button on your current nutritional habits? I've designed the 7+7 REBOOT to help take you back to basics: foods that provide essential nourishment, spark your metabolism, maintain blood sugars and decrease body fat. This 2-Week Nutrition Plan combined with moderate exercise and meaningful lifestyle activities will jump start your bod to shed excess weight and feel great. 14 EASY days of quick & easy recipes, healthful eating and 24 hour support.
Isn't it though? It's SO weird how in 30 minutes a day you can completely change your health/life/wellness and overall happiness. So why wouldn't anyone want to find that 30 minutes in their day??? THAT'S what weird.
Um, who isn't? I work most days from 7 AM until 8 PM and NO it doesn't matter that I'm a trainer and I'm in the gym 11-12 hours each day. Those hours aren't spent on working on me, they are spent working with my incredible clients. I'm training them and coaching them and helping them reach their goals. Don't get me wrong, I love my job more than life itself and selfishly seeing my clients both reach and exceed their goals is the most gratifying feeling I've ever experienced. But I need to stay healthy too…
Schedule it! TA-DAH! Schedule your workouts and your time for YOU and YOUR health just as you would schedule a meeting with your boss or personal appointment. Lock it in and don't budge on it! Get selfish, you deserve it!
Get. A. Trainer. And this is coming from a trainer of 18 years who sees 2 to 3 trainers herself each week cause you know what, I'm tired too! As we've already discussed, I spend 11 to 12 hours per day in the gym so when it comes time for my work out sometimes that couch looks much more appealing. But having that set appointment and that accountability to show up gets my a$$ where it should be, maintaining my own good health and fitness!
I fell in love with boxing about 10 years ago. It actually started back when I was a group exercise kickboxing instructor but once I strapped on my first set of gloves, I was hooked. First of all, you SWEAT. Buckets. Boxing training is not just about throwing punches and jumping rope but rather a total workout experience. The endorphin release is incredible! I like to call it my workout "attitude adjustment". It's amazing how throwing a few punches can turn a frown upside down.
You use your entire body in every move that you make within boxing. Your core is rocking, you're moving in every plane of motion possible making you crazy agile. Your legs are trained in a unique way that gives you an incredible sense of balance and mentally you simply become sharper because boxing is just that, a mental workout, especially in the ring!
Boxing is a stress reliever. Boxing is a confidence building. Boxing is not about violence, I've never hit another human being. It's about skill, technique and most importantly bringing your fitness to a new level. And learning little self defense doesn't hurt.
