Avoid These Common Mistakes For Fitness Success

How many hours per day are you spending at the gym and still not getting the results that you want? OVER 55 million people start their fitness journey in January and OVER 65% are done by March!!  There are a bunch of reason of reasons for this major drop off.
  • Lack Of Results
  • Extreme Burnout
  • Lack Of Knowledge From Bad Fitness Information 
Here are few more common mistakes to avoid for the first time exerciser or the veteran gym rat.  Keep in mind there are many variations or maybe you have a combination of each of these mistakes.
  1. Muscle And Fiction:  How many times have you tried a program from one muscle magazine and noticed zero result?  Have you noticed that every fitness magazine advertises bogus claims or the common infomercial that states " If you lose more than 30# in the first 2 weeks then discontinue usage"..hmmm heck yes I take those odd.
  2. Law Of Diminishing Returns:  This common law of economics should not be forgotten.  With fitness not necessarily more is better.  The longer you spend weight training the more damage that you are doing to the body.
  3. Skipped Meals:  Are you skipping meals or snacks?  If so then you are missing one of the most IMPORTANT steps of developing good habits.  A catabolic body (muscle wasting) will never produce lean muscle tissue to its fullest potential.
These are just a few to avoid for fitness success in January and for the rest of your fitness journey!!    Share it! Facebooktwitter

Top Grocery Shopping Tips

The other day I was walking around the grocery store and was just shocked how strategically the store was layout.  It seems that the average small town grocery store is a thing of the past and are now being replaced with huge super centers.  I am now able to do my dry cleaning, banking, drink coffee, eat Mc Donalds, change my oil and even cut my hair all in a grocery store!  Well here is the secret…the longer they can keep you in the store the more products you will purchase.  With this in mind, I have come up with 10 grocery shopping tips to help us stay on track to reaching your goals.
  1. Never shop hungry!  Have you ever noticed that food that normally is not appealing all of sudden sounds really good?  You will be tempted to purchase junk food and what I call “mindless food“. These include chips, crackers, candy bars, and other little snack grabbers. So avoid this at all costs!
  2. Shop on the outside isles.  Over 80% of the foods that you want to eat are on the outside isles of the store.  Foods like mixed green salad, lean meats, dairy products, vegetables, and fruits are always located on the outside isles.
  3. Shop from a grocery list.  Use the 30 Day Shredded Diet grocery list.  Stick to your list.  Over 40 percent of supermarket purchases are made on impulse thinking.  Stick to your guns!
  4. Stay away from the inside isles.  Here is a true fact.  Grocery stores regulate the heat on the outside isles.  They purposely heat in the inside isles more to keep you there longer.  The outside is always colder.  The inside isles have all of the junk food.  Be careful!
  5. Check out temptations!  With children I notice this a ton!  As we are stuck in line surrounded by candy bars, lolly pops, beef jerky, energy drinks, magazine tabloids, and other “mindless” foods the temptations rise tremendously!  Be careful.
  6. Choose foods wisely.  One rule I live by is that I always choose foods with one ingredient or no label.   If you cannot pronounce the ingredients on the package then avoid it.  Probably not good for you!
  7. Hurry Up!  Have you ever noticed the music in stores?  Supermarkets play down-tempo music to make you move slower and enjoy your shopping experience.  Marketing to get you to stay longer!
  8. Be careful in the cereal isle.  Companies pay big money for their prime spots on the shelves.  Have you ever noticed that all of the Disney characters are strategically placed at childrens height?  They are marketing to your children.  Sneaky,  huh?  Yes the healthy cereals are up high or way low.  The fruit snacks are right at eye sight level for children to see also.
  9. Why is the dairy case clear in the back?  Well this is strategically done as well.  Normally we are tempted to buy more as we walk to the back of the store.  Normally you will leave with more than just milk.
  10. Online grocery shopping.  Have you ever tried to shop with 3 small children screaming and wanting everything in the store?  Well it is not pleasant!!  My wife found the online grocery shopping experience to be very convenient.  A current study showed that people purchased 28% less calorie dense foods when shopping online.  Give it a try!
Bonus Tip:)  Avoid all of the free samples that the nice little vendor is offering!!   summermarketShare it! Facebooktwitter

The “Silent Killer”

Yes believe it or not but lack of movement is labeled as the "silent killer".  If you really look at your daily activity you might find a big majority is "sitting" .Yes we have become a screen viewing society and many just lack movement with a combination of poor nutrition is a DEADLY combo. As you are aware, I’m sure, people who work in an office tend to sit down ALL DAY LONG, and even if they have worked out in the morning (like at your boot camp), they still might be very sedentary during the day.  Here’s a typical example:  Get up and go to Steve’s boot camp with your day starting at 4:30a.m. If you look at your life schedule with children.  It could be even more lack of activity.  Driving children to their activities and sitting and watching activities..in general we have become even more inactive the more involved our children become.  On the go makes us even more open to grabbing food on the go and foods with preservatives. glfnutrition   4:30a.m -5:00 – SIT in car on way to Good Life Fitness 5:00-6:00am -- Boot Camp at Good Life Fitness 6:00-6:30am – SIT in car going home 6:30-7:30 – ready for work 7:30-8:00 – SIT to go to work 8:00-11:30 – SIT at work 11:30-12:30 – lunch (SIT most of it) 12:30-5:00 SIT at work 5:00-5:30 – SIT on the way home 5:30-bedtime – dinner, SIT to read/watch tv/help kids with homework, e.t.c.   That’s 11 hours of sitting, not including the sitting time after 5:30p.m. Lack of activity...YES belly fat and flat butt syndrome:)  Amazing when you really break down your daily activity like above. GOALS:  Get up and move around through out the day.  How about a ergonomic desk that allows you to stand?  How about taking a walk or better yet go to the gym over your lunch hour?  How about go for a run/walk when your children are at their practices?  Your daily goal is 10,000 steps per day!!Share it!
