Plateau? Here’s what to do

Plateau? Here’s what to do If you work out for any length of time no matter how hard you try you will eventually hit some type of plateau.  It may be a weight loss plateau or a strength plateau (as I did with my pull ups) or a mass gaining plateau.  Whatever type it is not a lot can dampen your enthusiasm as much as seeing your progress come to a halt.

Sleep Yourself Skinny

Sleep Yourself Skinny One of the most amazing ways that I have found to burn fat since I started this fitness journey has been the ability to burn fat while I sleep.  I know it sounds too good to be true but I have been doing it and have passed along this information to others and they have seen similar results.  What I do is make sure I eat my last meal by 6 PM and make sure that I do not eat any...

Female Fitness Myths and P90X

Female Fitness Myths and P90X There’s a lot of pressure on women to look, in a word, hot. Sure, for a chosen few, curves in the right places come naturally, but the rest seem to spend all their time snatching up the latest fitness fad, be it the Abs-o-matic 3000, Cucumber Colon Cleanse, or Low-Cholesterol All-Bacon Diet, desperately hoping to discover the new them. Instead, they usually walk away—or...

Push to Failure Failure.  We all hate it!  We hate to fail.  We much prefer success.  But guess what?  You can’t have success unless you make yourself vulnerable to failure.  Do you want success with your P90X / Insanity transformation?  You have to be willing to push yourself to the point of failure!  Do you want success with your job / relationships / etc.?  Then you have to go...

Cost of Healthy Eating

Cost of Healthy Eating Eating healthy costs too much!  Right?  That’s the most common excuse I hear about why people can’t stick to the nutrition plan.  They just can’t afford to buy all that “healthy food”.  After all, a bag of chips IS cheaper than a container of blueberries.  There’s no denying that! Well, I think there is a lot more to the story of eating healthy than just how much...

The Transition Diet

The Transition Diet A Transition Diet was something that I did to help change my eating habits from the “American Diet” of fast food and sugar to a more healthy diet that you can maintain.  It also helps you slowly break the habits that you have had for years about what you eat as it is very tough to just say “Now I’m Going to Eat Healthy” and be able to stick to it cold...

Feel Like Quitting?

Feel Like Quitting? Do you ever feel like giving up? I mean can’t you just hear your inner voices telling you that this whole “working out” thing will NEVER work for you?
