Why GMO’s are a good thing

healthy lifestyle Mar 04, 2019

 It’s really easy to find things to demonize.  Turn on the news, read a newspaper, or gossip about the neighbors.  It’s easy to find someone to criticize or blame for a problem.  If we can step outside of ourselves and see the other angles it can be very enlightening.  It doesn’t mean you change your beliefs.  It just means you understand the other point of view better. 

 

When we get into this black and white thinking it takes us down a bad mental, emotional, and spiritual path.  Now before I tell you about the good of GMO’s let me assure you that in our modern 1st world country we have infinite choices and we should choose not to eat GMO crops for the most part. 

 

So why are they good?

 

Let me explain to you how I came to understand the gray area.  We have a book called “the kid who saved the world” by Andy Andrews.  It’s a kids book and it’s super cute. ...

Unauthorized Food Pyramid

Uncategorized Feb 28, 2019

I’m not a dietician or nutritionist but I do listen to what they say.  I decided to make a food pyramid that was a little more reality friendly and still helped people to understand what they should be eating. 

 

The least controversial of these is the top and bottom of the pyramid.  Most people, no matter what “diet” they promote, would agree that the fewer processed foods anyone eats, the better.  Also, most people would not argue with the fact that vegetables are good for you.  Shoot, parents have been trying to get their kids to eat veggies since the beginning of time!  Pretty much the more veggies, the merrier. 

 

The second bar from the bottom Meat and Fruit is a pretty controversial one currently. The big trends right now are “plant-based or veganism” and “keto” which is mostly a repackaged Atkins diet. Keto says no fruit basically and vegan’s say no meat.  I think both can be...

My Trainer Adjusted My Posture, NOW IT'S SO MUCH HARDER!

Uncategorized Feb 27, 2019

 

Have you ever had this happen? You're happily going about your workout and then you can see the trainer make a bee line for you. Your heart jumps. You must be doing something wrong. The trainer offers a few words of (hopefully) gentle correction and then the exercise becomes nearly impossible.

During your next set you try to abide by the advice given, but it makes the exercise 10x harder. 

Why is that?

Let's compare your muscle to a group working on a project. In any lift or exercise, there are multiple muscles being asked to perform different functions. When you give the signal to your muscles to "bring that barbell from my waist to my shoulders" you will perform a biceps curl. But not all biceps curls are created equal. 

Not all teams are created equally either. I can remember group projects in college. They usually went something like this: one group member is the bossy one and is bound and determined to get an A on the project. Two group members are neutral and...

No Bake Energy Bites

recipes Feb 27, 2019

These are so good.  If you are one who is always grabbing an energy bar this is a great alternative that hasn't been processed and you can control the quality. 
 
I like that they are small, I find most bars are too many calories for what I need in the moment but somehow I finish the whole darn thing.  With that said WATCH OUT because the calories can add up quick with these.  
 
I often pop one before a workout when I am not fueled enough and don't want a lot of volume in my stomach.  
 
No Bake Energy Bites

The mixture is a little sticky so I used a...

Diet is a Noun, not a Verb

Uncategorized Feb 26, 2019

I could almost leave it at that but I’ll add a little detail.  It is not something you DO it is something you have.  Diet the noun is the typical food for an animal or person.  You shouldn’t go ON a diet.  You already HAVE a diet.  Now it may be terrible, but it’s yours.  If you make a radical change to yourdiet, it’ll work for a little while. 

 

But…when it breaks down you go back to your typical eating and gain it all back and then some.  Instead take what you are already eating and make a small change that you can live with.  When people join our program they are sometimes shocked we don’t have a “DIET PLAN” for them to follow.  There are helpful guiding principles in nutrition that we try to improve on but that can look very different person to person. 

 

Don’t go on the “Stone age diet” or the “Plants only diet”.  Go on the (your...

I was so frustrated and embarrassed

transformation stories Feb 26, 2019

I'd like to start by saying I am a very private person and hate being the center of anything so doing this testimonial for all to read will be very difficult but I honestly hope that in doing so can spark the interest and motivate someone to realize it's time to get up, get moving, get healthy so they can enjoy life for many years to come, as Art Williams would say "JUST DO IT!", so here goes:


I worked at a job for over 20 years and I really enjoyed it, until the company went through many changes at all management levels, plus many layoffs in production, they even froze pay raises and took money away. After laying off my workers my dept. I was expected to do the same amount of work. This became very stressful, and I even gained a new boss who thought he was all that, he wasn't and treated me like I didn't know anything and worse a female.  It hit me, I was stressed, overworked, and so unappreciated, all with having chronic migraines, hair literally falling out, and...

Proof your mind controls your hunger!

I stumbled across this and it was too good not to share. 

 

Milkshake Study YUM!

 

Grehlin is the hormone in your body that is responsible for hunger.  (think growlin’ grehlin).  The higher it is the hungrier you are.  They did a study with mostly college students.  There are a lot of studies on college students because for a couple bucks and a milkshake they’ll do just about anything.  So, they had them fast for 3 hours!  Basically, they needed them to be a little hungry.  They checked their Grehlin levels when they got there and then gave them a milkshake called sensible delight that promised guilt free pleasure.  At only 200-300 Calories, low sugar, etc.  They had to wait an hour for the milkshakes effect show up in the blood.  Then they checked the Grehlin levels again.  They had fallen.  Not far but some.  From what we know the more you eat the more they fall so a small milkshake should...

Never Plateau Again

Uncategorized Feb 05, 2019

Plateau. It can seem like such a dirty word at times. 

You may feel:

  • Stuck
  • Stagnant
  • Loss of Momentum
  • Powerless

Plateaus are not fun. You work so hard, yet you aren't seeing any positive results. To break out of a plateau you must do the opposite of all those feelings we just listed. 

You need to create:

  • Change
  • Motion
  • Improvement
  • Ownership

In order to do all of those things you'll need to tap into The Growth Cycle. There are three parts to creating growth and blasting through plateaus.

ACTION

LEARN

PURPOSE

You'll need to understand why you're doing something (PURPOSE). You'll need to actually go out and do something (ACTION). And you'll need to find out more information or get some guidance (LEARN). 

Here are a few examples of each.

ACTION

  • Plan out dinners for the week
  • Sign up for a workout
  • Take time for some meditation/breathing
  • Pack your lunch
  • Have the difficult conversation that you keep worrying about
  • Identify what the deeper problem really is

LEARN
