Imagine you have a messy room and you set a goal to clean it. If you summon the energy to tidy up, then you will have a clean room - for now.
But if you maintain the same sloppy, pack rat habits that led to a messy room in the first place, soon you'll be looking at a new pile of clutter and hoping for another burst of motivation. You are left chasing the same outcome because you never changed the system behind it. You treated the symptom without addressing the cause.
I see this happen often...even with the people I coach...you see knowing how many calories or macros is great...but the execution is different and so are YOUR habits.
So let me tell you what happens on TUESDAYS...but before I do, I have to work backwards
Friday rolls around...there is a social lunch, or out of the ordinary dinner or even planned outing...
But then Saturday comes and it's breakfast or lunch out...very little water..no movement
Scale hasn't moved much..and it shouldn't...not enough time went by
Sunday...wake up later, very little water, little movement...more foods that don't go with your goals...because goals are momentary and habits set in
But maybe you do workout a little cause you are trying to do the right thing
Monday..weight is up a little..but not to much, but now you are back on plan
So you eat your food, drink your water, but because you didn't over the weekend, now your body is retaining some...
And here is Tuesday...you wake up heavier
See you do that enough times..and 1 of 2 things will happen...the weekdays will become more like the weekends because you think it's not worth the effort - scale keeps going up - or you catch you behavior and patterns and the weekends become more like the weekdays as your habits change - you move closer to your goal
Our friends Brian and Carrie have a saying "THE STORY YOU TELL IS THE TRUTH YOU KNOW"
If you tell yourself that you are committed because you had grilled chicken and brown rice for lunch on Wednesday, but you don't acknowledge the rest of your meals and patterns....in your mind you eat healthy, follow your diet..and if you happen to get a walk in...you also believe you workout all the time
"THE STORY YOU TELL IS THE TRUTH YOU KNOW"
Now..how do we correct it...unfortunately no pills or magic
and Adults like things quick...right???
So you correct it but adjusting a little bit at a time...no you don't need to workout 7 days per week..but how about 4 days per week
No you don't need a gallon of water but how about the 8 glasses they say you should drink to start
No you don't need to eat out of Tupperware, but how about a little thought go into how you fuel the body the carries you around, takes you to work and keeps you alive...
Not sure how to do it...that's ok...
I'm not a mechanic so when my car needs help I don't ask instagram or youtube, I go to a mechanic
We are here to help...Virtual Workouts, Nutrition Coaching, Private Coaching (online), Contest Prep, and more
We are setting up 2 or 3 more photo shoots for the rest of this year
Would you like to be in one of our team shoots
Would you like to set up a photo shoot for your self
Want to TRANSFORM your body to be camera ready
The Fitness Competition stage is not for everyone, but a photo shoot is something anyone can do
Want to go through the Transformation process and finish it with a photo shoot?
So I shared this on IG yesterday and got a few questions
1st My approach to a Transformation doesn't change because the goal is different.
If someone is looking to get on stage like the girls in the pictures above or someone want to transform for a photo shoot or just transform for themselves....what I do does not change...I want you eating in a way that supports that goal, I want you training in a way that supports that goal and I want you to be consistent and compliant
Now as you see all the people in the picture + the team members that didn't make it + plus my other clients this is not a program I am offering for 50 people to jump on...I have a few openings only
This program is for a few people that want to do the work. Go through the process and get the outcome...No shortcuts...you will not be beach photo shoot ready in 2 weeks
2nd My Nutrition and Training program is for men and women,and all done remotely...you do not have to come to me, so you can be in Florida or Texas or Peru or Sweden.
I will create your Training program and Eating plan to follow at home or your gym
We will connect daily to make sure you are following your plan and I will help you Transform...at the end we will invite you to one our Team shoots or will invite you to one of our shoots so you can do some solo shots...or you can just enjoy your new body
3rd...Obvious questions...How strict is the diet and how many days do you need to workout?
I don't like restrictive diets, so that's probably what you are asking..but strict like if I say eat a burger, I want you to eat a burger. How much training?...well as much as it takes is the right answer...Can you get in AMAZING shape with minimal effort...NO
Stop thinking you can, that math doesn't add up
Can you do it taking 4 days off per week...because that is what 3 days on is...NO
That math doesn't add up
But I'd say more days on than off...and some days when you are tired and not in the mood..that you breakthrough...
Again...not 5 hours a day like Arnold would do in the 70's...but none of the people in the pictures asked "how many days off do I get?"
Last thing....Make sure that you catch why you ask, most people tend to find all the reasons why they can't do it after they got curious about it...instead of looking for the reasons why they can or should...you are interested...that's great..maybe a little nervous, that's ok..don't confuse excitement for doubt
If interested in the cost after reading all of this...just reply to this email with your questions..
So our Virtual Studio is ALMOST ready for delivery
Here is the email they sent me:
"We did not have an agreement signed by you until September 9th, so we were not allowed to start building your virtual studio until that agreement was signed. Once everything necessary is turned in it takes about 10 days or less before the virtual studio is delivered. Your expected delivery date is September 18th. But, looking at the buildout process it could be as early as the 16th! "
So there you have it...between today and Friday it will be ready

"Losing the baby weight is HARD" and "Your body is just NEVER the same after a baby"
Are 2 things I have heard over and over in the last 25 years I have been Coaching
And It's Just Not True
Just like you can't get 9 woman pregnant and have a baby in a month...you won't do it over night....but when do the right way...with time and patience + the urgency to do the work...hell yeah we can make it happen
You can do it after 30
You can do it after 40
You can do it after 50
You can do it after 60
I've helped Mom's of all ages
You can do it after 1,2,3,4 babies...
I've helped Mom's do it over and over
Stop saying you've tried everything
Stop saying you've given it all you had
And start saying that your Transformation is a must instead of a should and let's make it happen
