I often hear people say, “I eat really well.” I always reply, “what did you have for breakfast?” To which they say, “Well, except for today. I was late getting the kids to school, blah blah, blah, or last night we were busy so we stopped for pizza, etc.”

The strategies to fight this war are calorie burning, full body workouts, and a nutrition plan that change your habits permanently. That’s why we offer great body slimming and toning workouts and our Personal Fit Nutrition Coaching.

We have been talking about goal setting and how it can help you achieve your fitness goals. Some of you are working on the Couch-to-5k program, others want to do pull-ups, or 30 push-ups, and squeeze in 4 workout sessions per week.

Nutrition

Skip the cereal bar for a treat or snack…they often have as much sugar as a candy bar. Inexpensive apples can provide natural sweetness. Here’s a quick recipe for an apple cobbler type dessert.

  • 1 apple, cored and sliced into wedges
  • 1 T butter
  • Non-caloric sweetener to taste, like stevia
  • 1/8 t apple pie spice or cinnamon

Arrange apple wedges on baking tray. Pat butter on top of apple, sprinkle sweetener and spice over everything. Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes at 350. Serve warm or pack in container and refrigerate until ready to eat.

Remember what Coach Chris always says: “If you are not hungry enough to eat an apple, you are not hungry!”

Just for this week

People often say it’s expensive to have a personal trainer and/or a nutrition coach. But think of this….

Just for this week, decide to drink less alcohol, go out to eat less often, and buy less soda. For many of you, these simple changes could add 100s of dollars/month back into your wallet.

Stay at home and cook dinner, make your lunch to take to work. Not only will you save $, but you will also eat healthier because you will control the content and portions of the food you eat.

You can do it!
