FAMILY FITNESS


FAMILY FITNESS

I'm passionate about assisting others in achieving their fitness, weight loss goals & dreams.  I receive emails with questions almost daily from people wanting advice on how to improve their quality of life through diet & exercise.  

Today I received a question regarding how to introduce fitness to a child and what they can do to incorrporate exercise into their lives.  

Here is my reply...

Thank you for your kind words, it's my pleasure to connect with you. Congratulations on your daughter's great success at such a young age.


I wouldn't push her too much into doing serious workouts at the tender age of 12. If she truly has a desire & a passion to workout then you're goals for her are commendable; however, if it's your idea then it may cause body image issues for her in the future, of which, could be detrimental to her health in the long run.

I recommend to my clients to do family fitness activities to encourage children to embrace fitness. As a family go jogging or swimming at your local family fitness center, do fun aerobic videos, pushups, as well as go bike riding for excellent noninvasive activities that improve overall fitness levels at any age. You can even speed-walk the family dog around your neighborhood for additional evening exercise.

Be sure to allow her to be a "kid" and to enjoy yummy treats such as cookies, chips, ice-cream, etc. Lead by example, prepare healthy whole foods and lean meats for the three main meals of the day; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have an abundance of fresh fruits, nuts and veggies that she loves to eat for her between meal snacks; encourage her to eat often to sustain her energy levels and muscles development. I hope this was helpful...

Have a very Merry Christmas with your family and a joyful, prosperous New Year! 

I hope this inspires you to incorporate more exercise & activities with your family.  Keep moving and you'll feel healthier, happier & more empowered than ever!  It's truly a gift that only you can give yourself! 

Until next time... Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy

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.
