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!


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

More tough love coming…

Stay tuned!

Bump Up Your Fitness


You can bump up your fitness by adding 5 minutes to whatever exercise you do, such as when you are running, cycling, swimming, rebounding or weight lifting. And then you can bump it up some more with another 5 or 10 minutes, topped with some intensity.

Top it with Intensity

There are many ways to add intensity to your workout, and they all require your full attention. This means forgetting about chatting, ogling or moving like an aimless sloth. When intensifying any workout, you’ll need to be well rested, well fed and ready to go for it.

To add intensity to your workouts:

  • Start with aerobic exercise followed by weights without resting.
  • Focus on the muscle(s) you are working or exercise you are doing.
  • Switch from one exercise to another without resting
  • Superset 2 to 3 weight training exercises back-to-back.
  • Push yourself during the last minutes of any exercise.

Do dumbbell curls for your biceps using lighter weights than you usually lift. Look directly at yourself in the mirror, concentrate on your biceps as you curl each dumbbell. The rest of the world does not exist. Forget about the number of repetitions and concentrate on form. Do rep after rep until  it burns, then lift each side 5 more times. Take a 30 second break and start all over again.

Interval mash up

If you love your treadmill or other cardio machine, shaking things up with some interval training can bump up your workout. In a nutshell, interval training is a combination of alternating short, intense spurts of exercise with moments of resty. Interval training is chock-full of different aerobic exercises that keep your heart rate up for a period of time. The speeding up and slowing down of interval training turns your body into a stress-handling machine, both mentally and physically.

Make sure you eat before you workout, especially when adding intensity to your routine. You don’t want to fizzle out in the middle of any exercise, and you’ll need ample fuel to get you through an effectively intense workout. Prior to working out, eat something hearty like oatmeal, a whole banana, and half a cup of coffee.

Newbies and in-a-rutties Can Do It

If you are a workout newbie or have been in an exercise rut, it might be time for you to mix it up. If you’ve never hired a personal trainer, you might find it helpful to learn correct form and a routine that is best for your body. Ask the trainer to create a routine for you and make sure you write it down. Once you’ve followed the routine a few times, it will be like second nature.

Workout Buddy Time

You can also enhance the probability that you’ll keep working out if you have a workout buddy. This can be a friend or somebody you click with at the gym. Your buddy will help motivate you to get into the gym, and you’ll do the same for them. And when you both get into better shape, you can also celebrate together when you reach your goal.

Just go for it. Start small. Mix it up. Workout with a friend. Add new exercises. Rest less between sets. Add intensity to your workouts. Find a friend or start by yourself–and start now!  The sooner you start the sooner you’ll feel more fit!
