FITNESS TIP OF THE DAY

MOTIVATION! The Power of Progress Photos

Are you finding it difficult to stay on track with your fitness goals?  Staying motivated is essential to achieve any fitness or weight loss goal.  A great way to stay focused is to take weekly progress photos of yourself.  It's highly rewarding to see the results of your dedication to living a fit lifestyle.  We look at ourselves differently in photos than we do when we look in the mirror.  It's an awesome feeling to see your progress and to keep you laser focused on your goals.



Keeping a diet and workout journal is also highly motivating, you can print and paste your progress photos in your journals to keep a better record of your accomplishments.  You will be amazed at how your physique transforms as you keep track of your progress photos.  It's also fun to look back and see just how far you've come in a relatively short amount of time (if you workout regularly).  You may also find that living a fit lifestyle is a lot of fun and you may become as passionate about it as I am!

You can take progress photos with your cell phone, that's what I do each week, the photos of me above were taken a few days ago.  By taking your own photos you won't be embarrassed about someone else taking your picture or you can have a family member take photos of you with a digital camera. 

Having progress photos is another great way to log your fitness progress.  You can upload your photos on many diet and weight loss sites online as well.  How you keep track is up to you, there is no right or wrong way to do it.

So make it a point to take a progress photo of yourself at least once every week or two.  When you reach your short term goals reward yourself, you can buy a new pair of jeans or get a massage, you can do anything that makes you happy. 

As always, think & speak kindly of yourself and always believe in you!  Dreams really do come true!


Embrace Your Journey to Success

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.
