Day 18 of 30
Mind, Body, and Soul Transformation
The sun is shining, and we are all blessed with another opportunity to be great. So get up and let’s make the most of this day and this week. We might be shut in, but that doesn’t mean we have to be grouchy and grumpy!
I wanted to start off my week with a poll. Well, several surveys. I am so interested in what people like and don’t like. I swear I annoy the people who are blessed to see me daily. Just kidding, I know I get on their nerves. I ask a lot of questions!
Okay, so my first poll is exercise-related.
Do you prefer to workout WITH WEIGHTS or WITHOUT WEIGHTS

How often do we think about others and put ourselves on the back burner? How often do we say I will worry about my health, appearance, happiness tomorrow? My kids and spouse come first, and I’ll take care of me next. But what happens when you’re next just doesn’t arrive? Read More

Have you ever sat in the gym and listened to random chit chatter about losing weight? Not that I’m eavesdropping, but people talk so loud. Which is one reason I refuse to workout without headphones. Read More
Do you want to know how to fail on your diet? I have lots of experience at this and I’m not ashamed to admit it either. Failing was a part of my journey and that’s why I became interested in the health and fitness industry. Trust and believe that I am a pro at failing and I learned from all my mistakes. So hopefully I can help a few people with this post.
The number one complaint I get from clients is, I can’t lose weight from any diet that I try.
What do you think I’m going to say?
STOP GOING ON DIETS!!!!! You have to make a lifestyle change and do something that is sustainable for the rest of your life. Diets are okay If you have to lose a massive amount of weight because your doctor is concerned about your test results. But they will place you on a specific diet that will help you get into a safe place. Then you have to take over from there and learn how to make better choices in all areas of your life.
Firstly please know that sleep deprivation will cause you to keep on unhealthy weight as well as cause chronic conditions, ages you, cause depression and that’s just to name a few. Choosing a good bedtime is just as important as choosing a healthy meal or drinking water instead of soda.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with trying the Keto diet if you are trying to jump-start your weight loss. But I do have concerns and would advise all my clients to see a certified nutritionist if they wanted all their meals to be Keto based for longer than a week. You want to make sure that you are getting the appropriate amount of nutrients and a nutritionist will see that you are.
I personally have to choose Keto or low carb meals for my dinner. Me and carbs have an evil relationship. I can NOT eat carbs after 3:00 pm. I found that out after years of battling with weight. Now don’t get me wrong I do eat carbs, but just not for dinner.
I wish everyone well on their weight loss journey. I smell success ahead!
