Top Tips To Help Break The Stubborn Weight Loss Plateau

Top tips to help break the stubborn weight loss plateau!!!  YES the secrets of dropping 5#- 20# in 100 days. Now I know you were hoping for me to say in 2 weeks or 30 days but as you know I am not about fad diets, weight loss formulas, or bogus supplement schemes advertised to the be the answer to your problems. These methods produce short term results but NOT long term fitness success. With the New Year right around the corner you will be enticed to jump on ship to the quick fix schemes and YES they are tempting but stay clear as they are not the answer to fixing you long term. The secret is hard work, consistency, and dedication to your nutrition and those 3 will direct you to the right path of success. Every fitness challenge that we at Good Life Fitness have placed together has fitness tools installed and they work every time!! So many people have dropped 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 40+ pounds of body weight and well over 2 pant sizes in a short time of 100 days. Did they take weight loss supplements…NO?!? Did they have a nutrition program that was designed around supplements or frozen food to promote their success….NO?!? Did they have to sign a contract to hit these goals….NO?!? All of the competitors achieved these results with accountability, nutrition consulting, a well designed program by a certified personal trainer, group support, and yes HARD work!!

Accountability– Yes accountability is key. Methods as checking in with co workers, social media, friends/family, nutrition accountability are key. All competitors of the challenges use a calendar system to record their workouts.

Nutrition Logging– I highly recommend using www.myfitnesspal.com or even a diary to track your nutrition. This is key as many are unaware of how many calories they consume or what their macronutrient balance is. Many guestimate (sp) on their calories and many are 12-20% to too high or too low. If you bite it…then write it.

Personal Training– Yes many of the competitors use the fitness boot camps who are taught by a certified personal trainer at a highly discounted rate. Many also used personal trainers to custom design their fitness program for the weight room and to evaluate their programs. Many of the competitors or boot camp members are veterans. Having a program that is designed specifically for your goals is key.

Nutrition Consulting– During the challenge so many mentioned that the key was having Karissa, Tara, Christy, Kurtis, Jamie, Jim,  Bryant, Natalie, Dani and Ryan custom design their nutrition program and provide feedback along the way and make changes.

Hard Work– I am a fan of doing it the old fashioned way. Hard work and no short cuts is the key for long term success. I truly believe when you work hard for something and you put in your sweat and tears this has more impact for long term fitness success!!!

Daily Reminder For Long Term Fitness Motivation

The Better Your Reason, the Better Your Results

One of the interesting things about life is that we want to change, yet at some level, we want to stay the same. But you can’t do both. Clearly, you can’t be a before photo and an after photo at the same time. Every single success story I have seen over the last 25 years was created, to a significant degree, by the person wanting to change more than they wanted to stay the same. Sometimes people were absolutely at the end of their ropes — their health failing, their relationships suffering, their lives falling apart. Other times, people wanted to change because they knew that their lives could be even better. It might be inspiration or desperation that gets you started. Whatever your reasons are for wanting to change, please don’t lose sight of them! Remind yourself of your reasons daily and allow them to help you keep motivated and moving forward. ~Bill Phillips

Finding Your Fitness Motivation

Summer time and the cold winter is the hardest part of the year to stay on track with motivation. How do you restart your fitness motivation if you were once in great shape and/or maybe someone recovering from a major set back? All too common I hear the phrases “oh ya I’ll start tomorrow or ya I’ll start next week/month when I have time”. The sad thing is the time is never right and all the stars will never in be in alignment to be a perfect time. Here is a question for you?  What if you were once in a great shape like in high school or maybe you were in great shape before baby #1, baby #2 or what if you were in great shape before enduring a major surgery? How do you regain your fitness motivation? How do you find the internal drive to start up and get started? Throughout the years I have witnessed people start again with FIRE but fall short of attaining their goals. Why to they constantly restart? What is the mental thinking behind starting and stopping over and over again? What makes it so hard….is it knowing the pain that you must endure again? Is it sacrifice and dedication that is an obstacle? Is it prioritizing balanced nutrition and “creating” time for fitness? NOT sure but here are a few tips that I think will help you if any of the above pertains to you.

Tip #1: Change the mindset of shoulda, coulda, woulda. So many people think like this….you must retrain this mindset.

Tip #2: Forget your past failures if any. Focus on the present and not on the past…this is tough.

Tip #3: If your physical or current health has changed…you must work with what you have. If you have a joint condition change…accept and adapt.

Tip #4: Understand that you will have setbacks and obstacles along the way…expect and overcome. You are not a tree and you do have the freedom to overcome

Tip #5: Avoid habits that led to your “down fall”. Identify them and overcome.

Tip #6: Goals daily, Goals daily, and goals long term.

Tip #7: Have fun…so many become tunneled vision and everything else around you suffers. The key is balance…have fun and enjoy the ride to your success.

Tip #8: Don’t be so hard on yourself…NO ONE ever fails in fitness.

Selfish Versus Self Responsibility

SELFISH VS. SELF-RESPONSIBILITY

Oftentimes people mistakenly believe that by accepting responsibility to take care of their own health and happiness, they’re somehow being selfish. And no mature, conscious person wants to be “selfish.” This is yet another obstacle we need to overcome in order to reclaim sovereignty in our own lives. The fact is, we are being self-responsible when we prioritize, each day, doing what we need to in order to recover and renew our physical, mental and emotional well-being. That means we must choose to make time for exercise, eating healthy meals, rest, recovery and sleep.

We also must choose to create at least some quiet time for self-reflection and to clear and calm the mind. We must also choose to make time for doing things which we enjoy and that bring us happiness. These can be very simple things, for example: taking an evening walk at sunset; listening to your favorite music; getting out to enjoy your favorite hobby on a weekend. Although this all sounds simple, if we perceive them as being selfish, we’ll resist and put them off.

If you are a caretaker by nature, as I am, it is important to remember that we can’t give what we don’t have–and when we are low on energy and strength, it’s time to make renewing and re-energizing our selves a top priority! Make YOUR health a priority and I promise, you will find you have more to give others who need your help.
