FIVE EASY WAYS TO HAVE A HEALTHIER LIFE IN 2012.

(1). Write down your goals. Any goal, fitness or lifestyle, that matters should be written down somewhere it can be seen multiple times a day.  People who write down their goals have increased confidence and a higher success rate in achievement. (2). Stress less.  Stress is the ultimate enemy of health, and stress is a choice.  Sign up for a local yoga class, try to get to bed 30 minutes earlier, and stop over-committing and over-extending yourself.  Make 2012 your anti-stress year. (3). Eat more frequently.  Small, frequent meals, every...

HOW TO EAT INTUITIVELY.

Posted by on Oct 27, 2011 in Fitness Tips, France | 2 comments

Intuitive eating is eating based upon what your body needs.  In order to eat intuitively, you must learn to listen to your body and know that you can have a little bit of everything without guilt. Check out this video from the airport in San Diego — remember, listen to what your body craves and never deprive yourself of something you want. Everything is permissible in MODERATION. I always loved TCBY as a child since I shared initials with the company (Trisha Christine Blackwell), so needless to say, I was thrilled to find a TCBY on the...

7 Words & 7 Rules for Eating Pollan says everything he’s learned about food and health can be summed up in seven words: “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” Probably the first two words are most important. “Eat food” means to eat real food — vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and, yes, fish and meat — and to avoid what Pollan calls “edible food-like substances.” Here’s how: Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. “When you pick...

COMPARING AND STARING

Posted by on Aug 18, 2011 in Fitness Tips | 0 comments

There is a lot of comparing and staring that goes on in life and in the gym, none of which is productive for anyone.  Nothing good comes out of comparing yourself to anyone else, especially when it comes to comparing bodies.  Use the following list to remind yourself that you are doing GREAT just as you are today and to stop comparing yourself to someone else that you aspire to look like. Everyone has a different body shape.  You will never look like anyone else and someone else will never look like you.  Point blank. Mirrors are often...

THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING & FITNESS

Posted by on Aug 18, 2011 in Fitness Tips | 0 comments

While 80% of physical results come from nutrition and only 20% come from a workout, perfecting and balancing your nutrition to work FOR you rather than against you is impossible without getting your mind right.  You have the power every day to CHOOSE positive thought patterns; you have the ability to be the most positive person that you know, and when you are the most positive person you know, great things happen to you. In order for you to achieve whatever fitness goal you might have, you MUST believe that you can do it.  Unfortunately, 90%...

Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. Taking care of your body means putting the proper fuel into it.  Studies show that dieters who document the food and drink that they consume see 50% more results than those that don’t.  If you have a smart phone there are a ton of easy to use applications that keep calorie and nutrient counting easy!  My personal favorite is www.myfitnesspal.com — it works like Facebook for food. You can’t expect to see changes in your body unless you know exactly what you...

THANKSGIVING DINNER TIPS

Posted by on Aug 18, 2011 in Fitness Tips | 0 comments

1. Don’t starve yourself all day, this will only set you up to over-indulge and to regret your Thanksgiving dinner.   Be sure to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner today. 2. Make your plate as colorful as possible and only allow yourself one helping of food (or one plate).  Load half your plate with low-calorie, high fiber vegetables, a quarter of the plate with turkey / protein, and the other quarter with a good carbohydrate choice (ie. corn on the cob or a sweet potato). 3. If you are the cook, substitute unhealthy ingredients for...
