What I really want to say!

Stop it Already!

Stop looking for a quick diet fix. Stop eating crap! Stop spouting excuses for why you cannot workout today. Stop wishing your butt and thighs fits into skinny jeans and do something about the state of your fitness. Stop complaining, repeating bad habits and then maybe, just maybe, you can have the body you know is buried under layers of accumulated fat. And do it now!

Get Moving

rebounding fun for fitness

I’m sorry, but every year it’s the same thing. It’s January and the gym is full of people who will drop out within 3 weeks.

Fitness is not just a dream

You want to be fit, but do you really believe you can ever be in great shape? If you don’t believe it and want it, you can never have it. Sorry, just the way it is. You must have faith in yourself and realize that you are  a member of the most advanced species on this planet. You have an amazing brain inside your pretty head, so use it!

Let me Scream

Every time someone gives up on themselves and resumes bad eating and starts their day with exercise excuses, I want to scream like a giant angry head. Your body is made to move and be fueled with real food. So do it now!

Eat less & healthier

Yes, you will need to cut back on seconds, heaping helpings, and sugary, salty and fatty foods. You can do it! Use smaller plates, portion out your food ahead of time, shop healthfully, cook at home, avoid fast foods, shun sodas and other useless non-foods. Take charge of your eating, and not just for a few weeks.

Stick with it

In other words, if you really want to make a change to one of fitness and health, then push through your excuses and don’t give up. Allow yourself only positive motivating thoughts, and stay that way all year and for the rest of your life. it’s your choice!

Choose!

Fitness or fatness! Skinny jeans or fat pants! Long or short life!

More tough love coming…

Stay tuned!

Lighter Side of Diets

The Hollywood Vowel Diet

This diet is as easy as 1, 2, 3.  How can this be true? Just ask Sesame the Cat!

Sesame is the master living and breathing for one thing — food. Some say this is  because he was neutered last year, which freed him of all his manly cat ways. But those who live with him, such as the Round Lady, know his thoughts are  consumed with eating his next meal or treat.

So, when Sesame was asked by his Hollywood friends to partake in a review of the latest diet craze in Hollywood, he did not need to lick his lips twice.

The Call of the Pastry

Good Morning, Please eat me

You drag yourself into work after eating more than planned over the weekend. Monday is a new start and you promise yourself a healthy day of eating.

Moments after arriving you are barraged with mounds unhealthy eats. Muffins, bagels and pastries stare at you innocently. They want you and you want them. But not so fast!

What to Do

  1. Walk on by.
    Caution: Do not stop to smell or gaze lovingly at even one pastry crumb.
  2. Pour yourself a cup of hot tea and sip it slowly.
  3. Take a 10 minute walk around the building or up and down the stairs.
  4. Stop by the bathroom and assess your body.
  5. Remind yourself of your good heating promise.
  6. Return to your desk, avoiding the baked goods.
  7. Wait 20 minutes and pretend you ate a muffin, bagel or pastry.
  8. Know you did not eat even one and feel really good about yourself.
  9. Tell yourself “Good job!”

When Temptation Wins

If the baked goods win your Monday morning battle to eat healthy, remember that guilt gets you nowhere. Keep moving forward. Pour yourself another cup of tea. Relax and think of ten good things. Let the guilt go and think ahead and picture eating a healthier lunch.

When temptation seeps into your brain and muscles your good intentions, ask yourself if giving in aligns with how you want to feel at the end of the day. Then do the thing you promised yourself you would do.
