Reaching Your Full Potential
Failing to reach our full potential can often be due to underestimating our capabilities. Interestingly, as we become more fit our capabilities change and our end goal must also continue to change. In your journey…. Recognize when you reach a new level of fitness and remember to set a new higher goal.
Are You Bored with Your Food or Are You Just Bored?
Try a Smoothie: There are at least 100 different combinations of fruits for your protein smoothies. Actions speak louder than words: Make that smoothie first thing and you are committing yourself to healthy eating…or at least reminding yourself of it 🙂 If you are still bored… maybe food isn’t the answer.
You Can Break Your Emotional Eating Habits
As you eat well and workout you become super sensitive to what you are consuming. The more fit you become the more obvious the difference is between eating well and not. Eventually your attachments switch from habitual eating to eating for optimized energy, fitness and feeling awesome. Tune in to your fitness experience and your emotional eating habits will fade away.
Sheena's Fitness Reminders
Live Lean for Health We begin to lose lean muscle after the age of 30 through a process called Sarcopenia. Common minor side-effects are premature aging, pronounced wrinkling, sunken cheeks, loss of strength to do simple things. Our metabolism decreases as we lose muscle and our body fat% increases. Later it can result in metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes., since muscle tissue helps regulate blood sugar, insulin and other things. Muscle Building Tips Effective resistance training at least twice a week, combined with a protein and nutrient rich diet, specific for your body composition, will increase muscle mass. Cardio improves our response to insulin, helping with muscle repair. Helps with blood flow to get nutrients to muscle. How to do Both In addition to cardio classes I like high intensity, cardiovascular strength training workouts… so we get the benefits of both.
Momentum is Key
People who have a workout scheduled everyday have an easier time eating well and staying fit for life. It’s hard to recover from loss of momentum, both from an eating and exercise perspective. The longer the lull the more difficult.
