Why Your Goals Overwhelm You

Take a second to think about everything you have to do today.

Seriously. Take a second. I’ll wait…

Got it all?

Did you add the basic things like showering, eating, commuting, cooking? I want everything!

If you really put down everything it’s probably created a little bit of stress. You know you need to do a lot, but putting it all on paper makes it seem like even more!

Now the last thing to check is if your goals made it on that list. Continue reading “Why Your Goals Overwhelm You”

Creating Consistency With Your Health Goals

In a 12 month period, how many months or weeks do you spend CONSISTENT with your health goals?

Consistently eating well.

Consistently exercising.

Consistently sticking to you goal.

It’s my belief that the current ’trend’ of health and fitness is done in 2-12 week periods. With most people actually failing within the 2-6 week range.

As in, we aggressively pursue our goal for 2-12 weeks but eventually we “fall off the wagon”. It’s the constant on and off that we do throughout the year.

We jump into some new trending 12-week program and either don’t finish it or don’t stick to it after it’s done.

I think a lot about this trend because it is my mission and goal to find a way to help people be more consistent with their health pursuits.

I believe our health is one of the easiest things we can control, to have a happy and long life, and it’s why I do what I do. I want to help as many people as possible have a long, healthy life.

I believe that the first step to that goal is consistency. Being able to develop consistency in the pursuit of your goals is what will keep you moving forward.

My suggestion: stop thinking short term quick results and start thinking long term. Be the tortoise not the hare.

Just get started! Lower your barrier to entry, start small, think of it as day 1 and get moving.

Worry less about WHAT you should be doing and more about that you are actually doing something!

Nutrition Tip – Improving Digestion by Eating Fruit

Food combining is the concept of eating food in certain combinations for overall health, improved digestion and weight loss.

There are many concepts in food combining, but the most basic principle (and the most effective!) is to separate fruit from other foods. Fruit digests much more rapidly than grains, meats, dairy, starches, proteins and fats. If fruit is eaten with or after other foods, it can actually begin to ferment and cause gas and bloating!

Food Combining

It’s best to eat fruit on its own away from meals, or 15-30 minutes before a meal.

Eating fruit before a meal can actually jump start your digestion and metabolism, and often crush cravings for sweet foods after eating!
