7 truths for for golden fitness results!

February 1, 2012

1.)  Act Like You Already are GOLDEN!

Act as though you already are everything you always wanted to be fitness and health wise.    If you already were super-buff, svelt and uber sexy, how would you behave?  What would you be doing, to be that way and look that way?  ….Well, be that now, do those things now.  Does your super-fit-you go to boot-camp 3 times a week, have a at-home personal training session once a week, and maybe get in a yoga class or two?   Act like you already are golden-sun-kissed-fit, and before you know it – SHA-BAM, that future you is you!

2.) Think About Your Worst Case Scenario

Think about in detail, your absolute worst case fitness and health scenario….  perhaps sitting at home on the couch, bloated obese, body in pain, breathing is difficult, heart is working-over-time just for you to be alive, having to wear mumu’s or pants in outrageous numbers, body image so low, you can’t stand to look at your self……yikes -Get me out of this night-mare.    Looking at the very worst of what could occur if you totally fell off the fitness wagon, is a pretty snappy way to hop-the-heck back on.  It’ll scare the bee-jeebers out of you, and make you think again about skipping a class, or whether, saving a bit of extra cash is really worth not signing up for a session.    Now I’m not trying to be harsh here, I know we’de still be absolutely lovely human beings…no matter how we look…but think about how it would feel if that were you….                                      ……now think of that golden future you…..                                         which would feel better?                       I know what scenario I’m choosing!

3.)  Pick a Fabulous Fitness Professional 

To keep you going, motivated and moving forward, you want to find a fitness professional you can gel with.   You want someone, firstly, who is QUALIFIED!  Certified, and well versed in Fitness, Health and Nutrition., and who stays current and keeps things fresh and up to date.  Secondly, you want a trainer who’s on the same wave length as you…. Do you want a hard-core boot-camp to sculpt and drill you into fitness?  Do you want a dance-type instructor, who makes fitness feel like play?  Do you need Yoga to de-stress and let go of anxiety and tension?  Do you want choreography?  Do you want weights?  Do you want one-on-one, or partner workouts?  What is it YOU want?  What do you feel you need?  Hiring and working with a qualified fitness professional, lets you sleep better at night, knowing that your in good hands, safe from injury, and moving towards your goals.    Ahhhhh…… Bonne-nuit.

4.) Remember WHY Your Here and WHAT You Want.

Write your goals, and why they are important to you, on your mirror, laminate it and carry it in your wallet, paint it and frame it on your wall, (or like we did at Christmas – hang it on your tree)  put it in a locket….     Put it where ever you will see it often – keep it at the forefront of your mind to keep you focused and determined to succeed.

5.)  Put Your Support Group on Speed Dial

Your mom, your sis, your BFF, your trainer, your fitness buddies… keep them on track with your fitness and health goals, and call them up when your feeling a little over-whelmed, un-inspired, lazy, tired, down in the dumps, frumpy and grumpy…etc… sometimes we need someone to pick us up, or kick our asses- and say GET OUT THERRE, and Just Do It.   Also these are your peeps you want to CELEBRATE with when you finish your first month of boot camp, or drop 2 dress sizes, or have eaten clean a full month – share your success also with the one’s who love you and support you!  – – – That’s the real juicy good stuff.

6.) Get a Just-For-The-Fun-of-It Fitness Hobby

Hobbies keep you enjoying the moment, free, fun, joyous and maybe even a bit silly….  What physical activities do you love (and, yes….the obvious does count – – you sassy girls….)  What physical activities, make your heart sing?  What make your heart skip a beat with excitement?  What lets you forget about everything else and purely enjoy the moment?……. maybe a sport…. maybe swimming….. maybe ping-pong or other child-hood games…. maybe it’s even wii fit….  whatever it is, let go of the “fitness concept” in your brain, turn it off, and just enjoy feeling your body move….wow – we’re made so brilliantly!

7.)   Look Into Your Future

No crystal ball required….. just ask yourself the question “100 years from now, will this have mattered?”  …. Or to make it maybe easier to grasp “In 1 year will this matter?”  …… Is it leaving a legacy?  What am I teaching my children?  What am I doing for preventative medicine and health long term?  Am I elevating my life?  Does it help to elevate others lives?    Is it important to me?   How will I feel 1 year from now? How will I feel 3 years from now?  How will I feel as an older woman?  What difference will it make in my life..and in the life of those who love me?

Shine on Darlings….in health, fitness and natural living
