MOTIVATION! HOW TO STAY IN THE ZONE

Good morning! It's a beautiful morning, the sun is shining and the birds are singing - love it! This time of year is so rejuvenating! I wish it could stay this way all year round...

How many times have you said to yourself that you're tired and don't have any energy? Are you waking up feeling refreshed and rearing to go? Or are you waking up tired from lack of sleep, proper nutrition and exercise. Many of my clients in the beginning have a difficult time staying motivated to exercise and their eating habits are not so good either. I have a list to of tips to help achieve fitness goals.

CAROL'S TOP 10 WAYS TO STAY MOTIVATED

1. MAKE YOUR WORKOUTS A HIGH PRIORITY
Set out your workout clothes the night before and get dressed first thing in the morning. Set time aside each morning for at least 30 to 45 minutes to exercise.

2. CHOOSE A LOCATION TO WORKOUT
Choose a gym close to home or create your own home gym. All you need are dumbbells, a bench and a mirror and you have your very own gym!

3. SET ATTAINABLE GOALS
Write down 5 short term goals. Create your own map to success. Be specific such as, "I will lift weights 3 times a week." or "I will eat a small meal every 3 hours."

4. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
I always say "Believe in your dreams. Dreams really do come true!" If its your dream to be fit and thin then BELIEVE YOU CAN BE. Our minds are very powerful, thoughts becomes things. So believe in yourself that you have already accomplished your weight loss goal! :)

5. STAY POSITIVE & HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
Visualize yourself as already accomplishing your fitness goals. See yourself the perfect size, shape, & weight as you aspire to be. If you do your body will naturally begin to crave the healthy foods and will have the desire to exercise more. Be grateful for everything in your life. Especially your body as it is now. The more you are grateful the more you'll have to be grateful for!

6. KEEP A LIV FIT JOURNAL
Journal keeping is imperative for success. Being accountable for everything you eat & drink will help you immensely. Be honest and write down everything you eat & you'll begin to think twice about what you eat. Be sure to eat every 3 hours to jump start your metabolism!

7. CREATE A SUPPORT GROUP
Using the buddy system is a huge benefit for weight loss. Tell all of your family and friends your goals and then you won't feel the group pressure to over eat when at a family gathering or out with friends. Exercise with a friend if that helps you stay motivated. Surround yourself with people that believe in you.

8. HIRE A FITNESS COACH/TRAINER
Hire a fitness guru to help you learn how to properly eat and exercise. Being accountable to someone who you look up to will skyrocket you to success.

9. GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Sleep is highly important to achieving a long, lean, fit body. Your body repairs and builds muscle during sleep. Try to get to bed before 10:30 pm each evening so your body can fully recover properly.

10. FOLLOW THROUGH
Start your fitness plan today. Follow through with your goals, journal, and exercise routine now. Set a timeline and when you reach that goal reward yourself. Get a pedicure, see a movie you've always wanted to see, or read a good book. As you continue to do so, you'll find that your new life is just that a new lifestyle.

Staying motivated is a mindset. Believe in yourself and don't look at your new fitness routine as a diet, because it's not - it's a way of life. The more you stay focused on what you want the sooner it will appear. Trust me, having a positive mindset and staying in an attitude of gratitude will open doors that weren't open before. It's amazing how a little mind adjustment can change our lives in miraculous ways! So think positive, believe in yourself and drink your Liv SXinney Water for a happier, healthier life! :)

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
