Simplify your training and nutrition

so you can get results and enjoy your life, too. 

Mental Health Approach to Your Workouts

Fitness might look a little different this year.  At least it does to me.  While I have always been focused on weight training and minimal cardio in just three days a week to get optimal results, I’ve had my perspective shift.

Not a complete shift, though.

Lifting weights is still the way to go for ultimate results, but for the sake of metabolic health and increasing immunity, I am now cherishing cardio more than I ever have. I’m lifting at the gym, and having fun doing cardio with my Bowflex C6 Bike at home.

With lifting three-ish days a week and increasing a little HIIT afterwards, you can have it all. At least, that’s what I’m doing.

I’m getting the results, increasing my metabolic health, increasing my immunity, and also taking my mental health more seriously than ever before. Also leading Immunity and Wellness events, so be sure to subscribe if you haven’t already so you can join.

MENTAL HEALTH APPROACH TO YOUR WORKOUTS

Be kind to yourself.  While before there may be more tension for counting calories and macros, and letting weight loss be your goal for fitness, look at it differently.

Approach with the perspective of taking care of your mental health, overall well-being, and relationships.

 

 

 

 

ADJUST YOUR DIAL FOR NUTRITION, TRAINING, AND OVERALL WELL-BEING

Hey, we aren’t always doing our best.  It’s ok to not be ok.  However, it’s not ok to feel sorry for ourselves.  I learned that one when I crushed both of my ankles and had to learn to walk again.  No matter what; do NOT feel sorry for yourself.

Look at your dial.  Maybe you can’t be at a 10, and that’s ok.  What do YOU need for YOU and YOUR mental health right now? It’s better you adjust your dial back to where you need it versus jumping off the wagon and feeling awful about yourself.

You have this dial to feel more empowered.  Take some pressure off yourself.

Thank you to Dr. John Berardi of Precision Nutrition who gave permission to use the dials for coaching and publishing purposes.
