The power of this moment

Are you still looking forward to the day that you’ll be lean and fit?

Do you tell yourself that you’ll start living healthy tomorrow? Or next week?

After you’ve had just one more pizza dinner and one more lazy day on the couch…

Then you’ll commit yourself to eating healthy and exercising daily, right?

It’s time to realize that this way of thinking is a sneaky little trap. One that has fooled all of us at some point.

You see, when you put off healthy living to some designated day in the future, you’re putting the responsibility of action on your future self. Tricky, since your future self doesn’t even exist yet.

Only you, in the present moment, are capable of making action happen.

Being fit and lean is the result of thousands of healthy choices – all made in the present moment.

So give your future (fictional) self a break and start making real, tangible progress towards your goal – right now, in this moment.

Begin right now by calling or emailing today to get started on an exercise program that will enhance your life and bring your goals from fantasy to reality.

Pay Attention

When you are eating, pay attention.

Sounds simple, but how often do you snack in front of the T.V. or eat your dinner while in rush hour traffic?

Paying attention means eating when you are hungry and stopping when you are full. It means never eating just to eat, but rather because your body needs it.

Do this and you will quickly reach your ideal weight.

Low Cost Summer Program?

Summer is fast approaching & that often means a relaxation of habits to accommodate holidays, BBQ’s, drinks on the patio etc.

It can also mean that come September, jeans fit more snugly than you’d like.

Not many people want to do a challenging program at this time, but would you be interested in a simple habits based one that helped you stay on track and even helped you gain a little strength?

I’m thinking of doing a low cost (less than $2 a day), month long accountability program to help you check off the boxes for healthy habits so that you’ll feel energized & possibly even drop a pound or two.

The goal of the program would not be restriction but a reminder to stick to a few simple habits related to nutrition & exercise.

I could also make working out dead simple with LIVE & on-demand 'do anywhere' workouts.

If you’re NOT currently a coaching client and would like some low cost accountability towards staying healthy this summer, reply ‘I’m in’.

I’m thinking I can handle a small number of clients & I can put you on the list.

Have-Your-Chocolate Pudding

As you work towards your fitness goals, finding desserts that are low in natural sugars will facilitate your results. It will take some time for your taste buds to adjust from enjoying intense, refined sugars to appreciating the subtly and delight of natural, wholesome sugar found in fruit. This pudding is a spectacular way to enjoy creamy chocolate while avoiding refined sugars entirely. The avocado, banana and dates provide real, usable nutrients and vitamins while pleasing your sweet tooth.
