THE 5 “P”s FOR SUCCESS

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

In all areas of life you have the “5 P’s” that will determine your success.
I am going to deal with fat loss and fitness.

So let’s start with what are the 5 P’s?

Here you go: Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.

Think about it.

So in fat loss the number 1 excuse I hear is “I don’t have time to eat”,
followed by “It’s too hard to eat good.”

We will attack this very simply and easily. I will tell you what I do.
Now remember I own my own business, run 3 boot camps a day, 2
exercise classes, train clients, train dogs, take care of my house,
take care of the gym, take care of my husband!My schedule is
usually 3:30am til 9:00pm. Oh, and I have time to eat and eat right!

Sunday night is my preparation night for the coming week. I can
pretty much take care of all my meals at one time. How is that?

It is just as easy to cook 14 chicken breasts as one-right? What
about 14 sweet potatoes? What about making a whole box of
brown rice instead of 1 serving?Hey and I can cut up veggies
and store them in baggies in fridge.

So I just cooked 2-3 meals a day for me for the week. I will
throw in some yogurt, oatmeal, fruit along the way for snacks.
And I always have the whole 1 minute it takes to make a protein
drink!! I praise God for tupperware and for a fridge, and for
rewarming food the all important microwave.

Now can you do that? Of course you can. So no more excuses,
you can do this and be a healthy role model for your family and
friends and actually have more time to spend with them.

So get a planning and do your “5 P’s” and be a testimony for
health and fitness.

A LITTLE TIP FOR YOU WOMEN

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Ok, so you know Vitamins and Minerals are important. Most every
woman knows that.

However, not everyone understands WHY they are so important
for their body. So I recently asked Registered Dietitian Jayson
Hunter to give us the easy rundown on the Top Women’s Vitamins.
Here’s what he had to say:

Vitamin A – This vitamin contributes to the health of you eyes,
skin and nails.

Vitamim B – While B Vitamins are often referred to as “energy vitamins”
they don’t actually give you a surge of energy, per se. What they
actually do is help facilitate metabolic reaction in the body to create
energy. They’re also necessary for a healthy metabolism.

Vitamin C – This women’s vitamin is a great antioxidant and immune
system booster. It also helps skin health.

Vitamin D – Helps women absorb calcium. And it may help prevent
certain types of cancer.

calcium – It’s actually a mineral not a vitamin. And as most women
know already, it improves bone density.

Pretty simple, right? But you can also see why it’s so important to
understand vitamins for women. When we understand the reasons
to make healthier choices it helps us make them.

Now, I get asked all the time by women which vitamin supplements,
if any, they need to be taking. Great question.

Well, if your nutrition is 100% perfect all the time then you probbaly
don’t need to take any.

But that’s not the case for most women. Most women are busy as
heck and don’t always find the time for proper nutrition. So if that’s
the case with you I recommend taking a Whole Foods based Multi-Vitamin.
And the only one I recommend is Prograde Nutrition’s VGF 25+ for Women.

It’s actually really cool because it’s literally made from 25 veggies, greens
and fruits. You should definitely check out Prograde’s Women’s Vitamins

VGF23

At the very top of the page is the list of ingredients. You can see the 25 whole foods they use to make VGF 25+ for Women.

10 REASONS AMERICANS ARE FAT

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Weight control is far more complex than simply balancing calories
eaten with energy expended. Here are 10 top (alternative)
reasons why Americans are overweight – and some may surprise you.

Rates of obesity are higher than ever in the United States. According
to the Centers for Disease Control, more than six in 10 American
adults are overweight or obese
— and most adults are about 25 lbs
heavier than people were in the 1960s. To make matters worse, more
than half of all overweight people actually think they’re at a healthy
weight, according to a recent Associated Press poll.

In theory, weight control is a simple matter of balancing energy intake
(the calories supplied by food) with energy output (the calories expended
by physical activity, the digestion of food, and the functioning of your body).
To lose weight, you need to expend more energy than you take in. In
practice, however, the task is not that simple. While the basic principle
of energy balance remains true, several mechanisms — genetic, metabolic,
and environmental — can affect how much you eat and how your body
uses and stores energy.

A revealing study published in the International Journal of Obesity
(online edition, June 27, 2006) highlighted 10 reasons why Americans are
fat. The study explained that too much food and a lack of exercise are
not the only factors contributing to obesity. They identified 10 other
possibilities:

* Weight gain factor 1 — Less sleep. We’ve gone from an average of
nine to seven hours of sleep a night; sleep deprivation is linked to a
more robust appetite.

* Weight gain factor 2 — Pesticides and other chemicals in foods.
These substances can change hormonal activity, which can boost body fat.

* Weight gain factor 3 — Air conditioning and heating. We don’t
sweat and shiver as much as our ancestors, so we don’t burn as many calories.

* Weight gain factor 4 — Fewer smokers. Nicotine is an
appetite suppressant. Don’t start smoking!!

* Weight gain factor 5 — Greater use of medications, such
as antidepressants and diabetes drugs, which have weight gain as a potential side effect.

* Weight gain factor 6 –Population changes. There are now more
older people as well as more Hispanics in the United States, and these
groups have higher rates of obesity.

* Weight gain factor 7 — Older birth mothers, whose children
are more prone to excess weight gain than the offspring of younger mothers.

* Weight gain factor 8 — Genetics. Obese moms may pass
the trait onto their children in utero.

* Weight gain factor 9 — Higher body weight = greater
fertility. Heavy people produce more offspring than thinner people.

* Weight gain factor 10 — Assortative mating. Heavy
people tend to mate with each other and produce heavy children.

Michigan Boot Camps For Women

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

WOW!!

Well the boot camps for women is celebrating our year anniversary.
It has been a very successful year. We have had clients lose up to
60 pounds! We have seen the bodies transform before our eyes!
We have seen strength increase 10 fold! Women came in doing zero
push-ups on their knees now doing 30 push-ups on their toes!
We have seen women go from not being able to brisk walk 1/2 mile to
running it in 4 minutes!

These are just some of the testimonies. We have women change their
whole families health for the better.

Now that we offer a co-ed boot camp we have husbands and brothers
coming out to get what the women have!

I am simply humbled by the changes and results and lives touched by
our boot camps. It makes it very easy to sleep at night knowing you
have helped people live a better life.

The nutrition we teach, they are getting it. Building muscle they are
understanding the importance of it.

More than anything, they are blessing me with getting results and
living life and not just going through it!

Here’s to another great year for the Michigan Women Boot camps.
May we touch more lives and lose more fat and get fitter than last year.

CHOCOLATE AND SUNSHINE

Monday, June 8th, 2009

Ladies, don’t think you are crazy. That time of the month
can bring about many symptoms. The hormones in your
body are very powerful things.

Serotonin is lowered during this time and as it lowers we
can feel depressed, tired, and just plain ugly.

Chocolate can actually up your levels of serotonin so if
you feel yourself craving some during this time, your body
is telling you to raise that darn level. You are not crazy
and you are not just looking for an excuse to eat.

Sunshine can also raise your levels. Get outside for at least
15 minutes a day and get some sun rays. I love the sun.

Hey exercise can also raise your levels! Oh, yes. So get off
your couch, quit watching Oprah, and get moving. In fact the
best exercise you can do is interval training. This will actually
burn 9 times the calories of normal cardio!! So hey have a
chocolate bar, roll down your windows and get up to one of our
bootcamps.

SUMMER FUN

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

Summer is my favorite time of year. I love all the seasons
but summer the most.
I get to get outside and enjoy the sun, I love working in
the yard. And my dogs love going for walks through the
trails in the woods.

I love going “home” to South Haven and seeing my mother,
this is my excuse to go and enjoy the beautiful beaches they
have over there on lake Michigan.

I enjoy just laying out in the sun and recharging my batteries.
What a great time of year.

Now I will admit when i am carrying a little extra “fluff”, things
aren’t as fun. No, not at all.

So if you are anything like me that little extra fluff takes the
fun out of summer.

Come on now, you have time to lose weight and still enjoy the
summer so get busy.

Any help you need let me know.

WOW, WOMEN BOOTCAMPS OF MICHIGAN ROCK

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

All I have to say is everytime we have
a session of the Women Bootcamps of
Michigan I am so impressed that I just
have to shake my head.

I will watch women do things in the bootcamps
that I know they couldn’t do on their own.
Heck i couldn’t do some of the stuff they do
at the intensity level they do.

How does this work you ask.

Well anytime you have a group setting,
like in the Women Bootcamps of Michigan,
you will preform at a much higher level
than if you were by yourself. Also the
accountability to your “crew” keeps you
focused outside of the bootcamps also.
You will have a 75%+ success in dieting
if you have an accountability group.

All I have to say is I am proud and
honored to help these awesome women
stride towards their goals of fat loss
and overall health.

So thank you ladies for letting me be a
part of your success.

SWIMSUIT SEASON!!

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

Well ladies it is upon us. The annual ritual
of pulling out our bathing suits and trying
them on.
Scary, aint it.

Well for most of us this winter was not
kind to our waistlines. Was it just me or
was this a more severe and longer winter
than usual?

I felt like it was never going to end. Cold,
depressing, and boy did it encourage a
little overeating and under moving.

Well, yesterday I put on my 2-piece and
went into our back yard and to my joy
my suit fit as good as ever. Whew!

Actually I knew I was okay because of
the lifestyle I live. I do my exercise and I
eat very good (most of the time).

Well now it is your turn. Go ahead, get out
your suit, try it on. Oh oh.

Well here is my recommedation – get on in
to the Better Life Women Only Bootcamps
of Metro Detroit and you have time to get
rid of those hips and thighs, firm up that
belly, and lift your rear. Just in time to hit
the beach.

Do what hundreds of others have done.
Join the best fitness program for women
going here in Michigan, Better Life Women
Only Bootcamps.

Get some solid nutition advice and hit the
beach with a new and improved you. And go
ahead and start looking for a new swim suit!
