Contrary to popular belief, weighing in DAILY will help you reach your weight loss goal much sooner than doing it once a month or not doing it at all.

I used to believe that the scale didn’t matter it was only how my clothes fit… But then I realized the power of the mind and how weighing in daily truly reaches an entirely new subconscious level that made me think twice about what I put in my mouth.

Those that are afraid of the scale have a mental block ~ they’re terrified of what number will be on the scale; so in turn they eat more calories than they should and gain unwanted weight… and before long instead of reaching for your skinny jeans you realize that your fat jeans are much too tight for comfort.

Studies have shown that using the scale daily will indeed help you lose weight faster!

Trust me weighing in daily will change you from having a scared, fat conscious mentality to a "bring it on" weight loss mentality. It’s highly empowering to get on the scale and watch the numbers go down  as you pursue your weight loss goal.

I’m not saying that there’s a certain weight you should be – that’s a personal choice. But if you want to shed a few pounds then stepping on the scale first thing each morning will highly motivate you to stay on track & focused on your fitness & weight loss goals.

Give it a try for a week and you’ll find that you won’t desire the high fats, sugar & sodium laden foods because you won’t want to see the number go up the next time you step on the scale.


Be realistic and don't set an unattainable goal.  Start of by a setting a goal to lose a few pounds at a time, stay away from setting a big weight loss number or it will be overwhelming and you probably will give up before you even get started... When setting a weight loss goal you have to begin with a positive mental attitude to achieve ultimate success that will last.  Start off by wanting to lose 5 to 10 lbs, once you achieve that and you find that you want to lose more weight then set a new goal again of wanting to lose 5 to 10 lbs.  Take baby steps it's much easier both mentally & emotionally as you begin to work towards your ultimate weight loss goal.


By eating smart and often, every 3 to 4 hours, you will be able to keep your waistline down and you’ll find that you’ll have sustained energy throughout the day.

What does eating smart mean? Eating clean and practicing portion control. By having lean protein, a complex carb & lots of fresh veggies with each meal you'll find that you'll be satisfied longer without feeling heavy. Remember, protein builds muscle ~ the more muscle you have the higher your metabolic rate which results in burning more calories at rest ~ who doesn’t want that?

Protein alone won’t build lean muscles however, you have to be active throughout the day and exercise daily to maintain lean muscle tissue. Lifting weights is a must to create a lean, shapely physique which in turn burns fat tissue and builds beautiful muscles. And to wrap it up weighing in each day will keep you focused on your gaols to achieving your fitness & weight loss goals.

So don’t be afraid of the scale, let it be your friend & personal motivator. Visualize your ideal goal weight & the physique you desire each night before you go to sleep and before you know it you WILL see your goal weight when you step on the scale!

If you gain a few pounds, no worries, that’s just a friendly reminder to cut back on your caloric intake and get moving more. The scale truly is your friend, the more than you realize that the easier it will be to get on the scale each morning. 

Until next time… Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy!

"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.
