To win the week you need to get your mindset right. Developing successful strategies to set yourself up for success requires reflection, mindfulness and an independent observer like a coach! Check out our latest coaching webinar where we focus on non-scale victories and owning up to any setbacks we faced in the past week.
There are a wide variety of nutrition strategies and diets out there. Some focus on reducing your appetite, while others focus on restricting calories, carbs or fat. However, it can be a bit difficult to find the nutrition strategy that’s best for you with so many options out there.
Have you ever wondered if you could get more done? What habits would allow you to do this? Days roll by, tasks are overwhelming and sometimes just getting started seems like the most daunting task. Too many distractions, brain fog, crappy sleep, you can’t focus on just one task because every single one seems important.
Cheers to the freakin’ weekend! It’s Friday and if you’re like most people living that weekday work-life, then it’s normal to want to kick back and relax with a drink or two. But if you’re reading this, then you’re probably wondering already, if alcohol will effect your progress. Well, YOU SHOULD BE.
Tracking alcohol might sound tedious, but if you’re serious about your goals and living a sustainable lifestyle then it’s important that you learn how to do it. Flexible eating is designed to be flexible! Enjoying a few drinks with your family and friends now and again is a part of life. So here’s how you can plan ahead for those drinks and still hit your numbers at the end of the day.
Active recovery? You’re probably thinking “ain’t no one got time for that!” Don’t worry we get it. You’re focused and committed to achieving your goals. You’ve got a one way ticket on the gains train and you don’t want to get left sitting on the platform! Well if you haven’t already, have a read of our post about calorie intake on training days vs rest days and that might just help you drop that mantra you’ve been clinging to that “More is Better” when it comes to your training and workouts.
Do rest days feature in your training routine? When it comes to improving fitness and performance, exercise and calorie intake are a major priority for our clients. Most of us know what we should be doing in the gym and the amount of calories we should be eating on training days, but what about rest days? One of the most common questions we get from clients is:
“Should I eat more on training days vs rest days?”
I am sure most of us are familiar with the paleo diet, or have at least heard of it at some point. After all, it’s one of the most popular weight loss diets out there. But as with anything in life, there are some good and bad things about this diet. That’s why many people opt for flexible eating or If It Fits Your Macros (IIFYM) instead.
We have been on vacation in Hawaii for nearly two weeks. Check out how we have been doing so far, how we have stayed on top of our nutrition and fitness plus some tips and tricks for saving money when you’re on vacation.
There’s no doubt that the biggest challenge for our clients and for us too, is when we’re thrown out of our typical routine. Whether that be a long vacation or a short weekend trip away, continuing to make progress or at least avoid undoing progress is no easy feat. Jason and I have both been on vacations in the past where we would do nothing but enjoy indulgence after indulgence. It’s fun when you’re doing it but the guilt and self-loathing when you get back from vacation and discover you’ve gained in excess of 10 lbs., well that’s more than just a little bit miserable!
