“TOO” & Weight Loss Sabotage

January 16, 2013

“TOO” & Weight Loss Sabotage   Are you too tired?  Too injured?  Too hungry?  Too busy?  Too poor?  Too addicted?   “Too”  is an enabler.  “Too” leads to weight loss sabotage. An excuse seed.  Don’t cultivate that seed, it will grow into a forest of distraction and deterrents.  If it’s too late, clear cut the forest.   Your brain can over ride your body and stop it from doing things but you have to give it the ok to do so.  Ever want to hit someone but didn’t do it? Self control.  When you hear yourself saying that you are “too” something, stop and think.   Are you allowing how you feel about yourself alter your course toward success with wimpy resistance?  Stand up to the thoughts that you’ve been programmed to have by parents, friends, teachers and the media.   The word “too”  when coupled with the thought of doing something, implies that you can’t do that thing.  You can do whatever you set your mind to.  You have the power, you simply have to access it.   If you would like examples of accessing the power, call for a free 15 minute meeting by phone or in...

Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance – 2013 Resolutions in Portland’ Maine

December 14, 2012

2013 Resolutions in Portland, Maine   A recent article in Muscle & Fitness Magazine revealed the following statistics:   15% of Americans belong to a gym. 67% of that 15% NEVER use the membership. 10% of resolutions are to exercise more. 19% of all resolutions are to lose weight. 67% of Americans make 3 resolutions every year. 8o% of people who join a gym in January Quit by February.   My experience with weight loss challenge participants and weight loss coaching clients has been the following:   People set the right goals for the wrong reasons. People lose steam because they haven’t been honest regarding their motivation(s). People have their plan “in their head” instead of on paper and it gets lost in the day to day this and that. People who write down their goals and keep them prominent (reviewing them daily) win. People think they understand nutrition and food and when their self made customized diet doesn’t work, they are surprised, and blame the process not themselves. Education on diet and nutrition, even if you already know a lot, never hurt anyone. Having a support group, attending classes, using a trainer and/or a coach does not mean...
