5 Habits of the Fit and Fabulous

Being fit is all about the lifestyle, and not the quick fix, so let’s take a glimpse at the habits that fit people have. These following five habits are held by successfully fit people…let’s see if you could apply some to your own life.

1. They See Each Day with Perspective

Fail to meet your fitness goals today? Move on. Tomorrow is another day to make smarter decisions. When you wake up, rededicate yourself to your fitness goals without beating yourself about whatever mistakes you made in the past. After all, you can’t change what you did yesterday. All you can control is right now. So get to it!

2. They Find Ways around their Excuses

If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t quite get fit, it may be your proclivity for caving to pressure. And that pressure may be self-induced. Fit people do not give into excuses for why they shouldn’t exercise. Quite the contrary. They are continually finding reasons why they should hit the gym and find pockets of time to do it—even if the trip to the gym is shorter than usual.

3. They Eat and Sleep Well

Study after study has shown the benefit of eating whole, unprocessed foods. It provides energy and strength, helps you feel full throughout the day, and makes your time in the gym as fruitful as possible. Getting good sleep is equally as important, as it keeps all your bodily systems in rhythm. Put these two fit activities together and you’re well on your way to optimal fitness.

4. They Track Progress

For some, keeping tabs on health progress is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Once you get into the routine, however, you will become a believer in the power of tracking your progress. Tracking serves to both reward and motivate you, as you see that the countless hours in the gym and smart food choices lead to a healthier weight and greater strength—a.k.a. better overall fitness and health.

5. They Lean on a Fitness Professional

The final thing fit people do is rely on someone with lots of knowhow in the realm of fitness. This is why my clients have such a high success rate in achieving their goals – because I make sure that they stick with it! I have a sincere interest in your overall health and well-being and know how to help you reach the goals that can seem so far away when you’re trying to achieve it on your own.

Emotion Creates Motion

Can you remember a time when you felt completely discouraged with your body? It’s easy to beat yourself up when the body that you have is miles from the one you want. When negative emotions flood over you resist the urge to get down on yourself, rather turn the tides in your favor. You may have heard the expression ‘emotion creates motion’. This is a very powerful tool. Channel your dissatisfaction with your body into ‘motion’. Take control of your body and put a plan into action.

What Works Best for Weight Loss?

Accountability.

You may know WHAT you should be doing to be healthy, but are you doing it?

If you need some hand holding to establish (or re-establish)​ your healthy habits, you're in luck. My MOST affordable coaching program is designed for this purpose. 

It's my 'Waist Management' program that I originally developed for the summer, but due to it's popularity with clients, I've kept it rolling all year.

In addition to weekly check ins with lifestyle habits, 247 access to me for questions and twice monthly live coaching calls, you'll have opportunity to workout LIVE with my team and me (as well as you'll have access to 100's of follow along videos).

Most ladies that join the program either stay in it or move into other programs because they love the support they are receiving.

Menopause Weight Gain?

Just because weight gain is common in menopause doesn’t mean it will happen.

There are plenty of things you can do to offset menopausal weight gain.

AND, if weight has crept up, you CAN lose it, despite what the mainstream suggests.

Is it a challenge? Yup…

But weight loss at any age can be a challenge.

This is why I created my  Nutrition Academy​​.

Understanding what’s going on with your body, and accountability are key to long term weight loss success.

My goal is to provide the info you need to finally achieve your ideal weight.

You'll learn exactly what you need to know to lose the weight & keep it off while eating the foods you enjoy, without starvation diets or scams, pills, powders or potions.

Portobello Eggs Benedict

Have you ever noticed how most of our favorite breakfast dishes center around a grain+gluten filled item? Breakfast is notoriously a high-carb, low protein meal, which sets you up for a day filled with poor food choices.

So, rather than go with the high-carb flow, start your day off with this Portobello Eggs Benedict – where a marinated and roasted Portobello mushroom cap is used to replace the English muffin. Think of it as a modern, fitness-friendly version of Eggs Benedict that will keep you on track with your results. Enjoy!

What you need
Serves 4

For the Marinade:

2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon minced shallot
sea salt and black pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil

For the Creamy Mustard Sauce:

2 Tablespoons coconut cream
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon fresh chives, minced
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon water

For the Benedicts:

4 Portobello mushrooms
1 teaspoon white vinegar
4 eggs
1 cup baby spinach

Instructions

1. In a medium bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients. Wash the mushrooms and remove the stems. Place the mushrooms in a ziplock bag with the marinade for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

2. In a medium bowl combine the mustard sauce ingredients. Mix until creamy then store in the fridge.

3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Place the marinated mushrooms on the pan and bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

4. In a large saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a simmer (not a boil!) Add the vinegar. One at a time, crack the eggs into a cup and gently slip into the water. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs.

5. Plate each benedict by topping a Portobello with spinach, a poached egg and a dollop of creamy mustard sauce. Enjoy!
