GETTING BACK ON TRACK!

Getting Back on Track!



"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."  ~Lou Holtz

YOU CAN DO IT!

Getting back on track with your fitness and weight loss goals after a festive holiday of overeating with family and friends can be overwhelming for some people. If you ate too much yesterday don’t worry you can regroup and attain your goals!

Typically at social gatherings there is plenty of high calorie foods and desserts to tempt and tantalize your taste buds. Often self discipline and control seem to go out the window the moment you step through the door. 

If you overindulged this past Easter weekend, don’t despair, there is nothing wrong with indulging a bit by eating succulent foods; in fact, it’s good for the body and mind to have a high calorie meal now and again after weeks of eating clean.

Unfortunately, many people have negative self talk in the aftermath of overeating and convince themselves that they already ruined their diet, they may think “Why should I continue try to lose weight or get in shape? I already gained weight back....” then before they know it they begin to mindlessly eat junk food and sweets, and lack the desire to continue to exercise which ultimately causes more weight gain and frustrations.

If you are discouraged here are 5 simple ways to get back on track to assist you in reaching your fitness goals.

5 Fitness Motivational Tips

1. Love yourself unconditionally. Think & speak positively to yourself. Visualize how you wish to be, and then believe that you are deserving to accomplish your dreams.

2. Write down your goals. Write them in the present tense, as though you have already accomplished them, i.e. “I have lost 10 pounds.” “I wake up each morning and exercise 6 days a week.” “I crave healthy whole foods each day.”

3. Visualize your success. Each morning and night focus and visualize exactly how you want to be, use all 5 senses. Post a photo for a visual aid of how you desire your physique to be. Have gratitude in your heart and give thanks aloud throughout the day for your miraculous body & for all the blessings in your life.

4. Be prepared! Write down your meals & workouts plans for a week, and then follow through!

5. Keep a gratitude, meal & workout journal. Being accountable to you is highly motivating. Keeping a gratitude journal will literally transform your thoughts to create the life & body of your dreams!

If you do the above faithfully you will achieve your fitness dreams easier! Believe in all that you are and have fun as you continue to strive to live a healthier & happier way of 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.
