5 Healthy Ways to Celebrate Weight Loss Success

diningWhat do you think of when you think of “celebration”? I think of parties, food, drinks, sweets, cake, friends and music. It’s the easy way to celebrate, but not the only way to celebrate. It’s also not the best way to celebrate when the thing you are celebrating is weight loss or meeting a health and fitness goal.

Think about it this way. What if you were a recovering drug addict? Would you celebrate 30 days of recovery by having a party where you can indulge in some drug use just for one night? It’s actually quite ludicrous when you think of it that way. So why would we do the very same thing with food after finally getting “clean”?

Here are 5 healthy ways to celebrate your success:

Instead of going out to eat or indulging in the greasiest, gooiest, highest-calorie food you can find, go shopping! Seriously! You could easily spend $100 treating yourself to a special meal or two, or going out on the town. Instead of sabotaging your success, secure it! Treat yourself to a new pair of jeans or a new outfit instead to fit your brand new body. Not only will this be a great treat, but it will also keep you motivated to stay in your new smaller size. This type of celebration supports success, instead of sabotaging it.

We tend to let old habits creep back into our new healthier lifestyle. We ALL do this – even me. Next time you reach a goal, instead of treating yourself to an old unhealthy habit, do something that actually supports your new healthy lifestyle. Treat yourself to a new pair of tennis shoes, a gym membership, a class pass, fitness magazine, gym bag, fitness accessory or helpful gadget. Set small goals with small healthy prizes along the way to keep you focused and motivated to keep plugging away.

Many times we piggyback our celebration onto another event, like a birthday party or football game. If you do this, your celebration not only loses value but it can easily turn into a habit of making excuses to celebrate because there will always be a party to attend or an event surrounded by food and drinks to tempt you to “celebrate” again and again. Plus, it’s very unlikely the people who are “celebrating” with you appreciate what you are celebrating or will share common goals. Celebrating on purpose takes planning, but it also should be set apart from other typical celebrations. Otherwise, you may find yourself celebrating every weekend.

4. Celebrate with the right friends.

high five friendIt normally takes more than one person to help you reach your goals. It could take a supportive spouse, a trainer, workout partners, friends or co-workers to help you stay committed every day. If you want to celebrate, don’t celebrate alone. Celebrate with the people who will understand your accomplishment and are excited for you more than others. Most of the time, they too are working toward a goal so they won’t want to sabotage their success either. And, if they haven’t reached their goal, your victory can inspire them to try harder. Also, the right friends will understand why you are still drinking water or not wanting to go completely overboard in your celebration instead of trying to convince you to let loose because you’ve “worked so hard” and “deserve it”.

5. Party outside the box.

pedicure partyA party doesn’t have to involve food or drinks. A party or celebration’s most important component is the people who are celebrating with you. Once you have decided who you want to celebrate with, then decide what you want to do – and be creative! There are SO many ways to celebrate. You can go to a theme park, play mini-golf, go bowling, plan a beach or pool party (Lord knows you won’t want to pig out if you are wearing a bathing suit! LOL), go to a rock climbing gym with friends, see a show, plan a mini vaca, schedule a shopping trip with friends or have a spa day. You can even go solo and treat yourself to a pedicure or schedule a relaxing massage and just enjoy some quiet time to yourself.

We will always be tempted to do what we’ve always done and take the easy route, but if you are truly changing your lifestyle, you will also have to change the way you celebrate victories. Because, if you are working this hard to improve, you will have a lot of victories in your future!

Is Fear Holding You Back?

Fear! We ALL have fears. Fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, fear of the unknown, fear of injury, fear of being uncomfortable or unhappy. Fears hold us back so it’s only when we allow ourself to go afraid that we can actually go anywhere at all.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  – 2 Timothy 1:7

fearFear is not something God wants us to live in. He wants us to move boldly ahead and trust Him on our journey. If you are letting fear hold you back from doing something healthy, better, good, helpful or right, you are actually in sin because you aren’t trusting Him to help you through it.

I have let fears hold me back so much over my lifetime. I will move boldly in any area I am strong in, but not when it comes to an area of weakness or the unknown. Then my tendency is to make excuses, procrastinate, watch from a distance or pretend I don’t even want “it”.

Even something as simple as taking an exercise class was something I didn’t do because I was afraid. I am a fitness professional, yet I was terrified of being put on the spot, failing or not being able to live up to what I thought people expected of me. 4 years ago, I made a decision to put my fears aside and just, like Joyce Meyer says “go afraid”. Feeling fear isn’t wrong, but not doing what you know you should do because of fear is what is wrong.

I have watched fear paralyze people and it has even paralyzed me, but no more!! I’m going to be the woman God desires me to be even if I have to do it with my knees knocking and fingers shaking! Who’s with me!?

A Guilt Trip to Regret City

Regret signHow much time do you spend thinking of the past. Past failures, regrets, disappointments and mistakes? How often do you take a guilt trip down memory lane? How often do you let your past into your day and affect your thoughts and decisions?

Many people allow their past to continue to affect them simply because they don’t make a conscience decision to leave the past behind. Here’s a little story that puts a funny spin on one trip we take too often; the Guilt Trip.

 

GuilttripGuilt Trip

I had not really planned on taking a trip this time of year, and yet I found myself packing rather hurriedly. This trip was going to be unpleasant, and I knew in advance that no real good would come of it. I’m talking about my annual “Guilt Trip.”

I got tickets to fly there on Wish I Had airlines. It was an extremely short flight. I got my baggage, which I could not check. I chose to carry it myself all the way. It was weighted down with a thousand memories of what might have been.

No one greeted me as I entered the terminal to the Regret City International Airport. I say international because people from all over the world come to this dismal town.

You’re Invited!

unhappy dinner partyAs I checked into the Last Resort Hotel, I noticed that they would be hosting the year’s most important event, the Annual Pity Party.

I wasn’t going to miss that great social occasion. Many of the town’s leading citizens would be there. First, there would be the Done family, you know, Should Have, Would Have and Could Have. Then came the I Had family. You probably know ol’ Wish and his clan.

unhappy familyOf course, the Opportunities would be present, Missed and Lost. The biggest family would be the Yesterday’s. There are far too many of them to count, but each one would have a very sad story to share. Then Shattered Dreams would surely make an appearance. And It’s Their Fault would regale us with stories (excuses) about how things had failed in his life, and each story would be loudly applauded by Don’t Blame Me and I Couldn’t Help It.

Well, to make a long story short, I went to this depressing party knowing that there would be no real benefit in doing so. And, as usual, I became very depressed. But as I thought about all of the stories of failures brought back from the past, it occurred to me that all of this trip and subsequent “pity party” could be cancelled by ME!

Taxi!!!!!!

I walking down the streetstarted to truly realize that I did not have to be there. I didn’t have to be depressed. One thing kept going through my mind, I CAN’T CHANGE YESTERDAY, BUT I DO HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE TODAY A WONDERFUL DAY.

I can be happy, joyous, fulfilled, encouraged, as well as encouraging. Knowing this, I left the City of Regret immediately and left no forwarding address.

Am I sorry for mistakes I’ve made in the past? YES! But there is no physical way to undo them. So, if you’re planning a trip back to the City of Regret, please cancel all your reservations now.

I’m Moving!

perfect homeInstead, take a trip to a place called, Starting Again. I liked it so much that I have now taken up permanent residence there. My neighbors, the I Forgive Myselfs and the New Starts are so very helpful.

By the way, you don’t have to carry around heavy baggage because the load is lifted from your shoulders upon arrival. God bless you in finding this great town. If you can find it, it’s in your own heart. Please look me up. I live on I Can Do It street. – Story by Larry Harp

Time for Change

Joyce Meyer shared this story in one of your teachings and it reminded me of just how much our thoughts affect us. We have a choice on what we think about, who we spend time with, what we spend time doing and what we talk about. All of these things greatly affect our present and future. Sure, we can’t do much about our past, but we sure can refuse to let our past hang out with us. We can leave our past behind. We can learn from it but we don’t have to repeat it. We can embrace new things. We can embrace change!

Woman-Waving-GoodbyeWHAT is something in your past that you are allowing to stay in your life. What needs to be locked up tight so it doesn’t get back out? WHO is in your life that keeps bringing the past back up? WHAT rules or requests have you put in place so you can successfully leave the past behind? What steps are you taking to leave it out and KEEP it out?

Mistakes, regret, sorry, disappointment and failures will always invite you to spend time with them. You have a choice to just say NO. :)

10 Simple Tips for a Healthier Heart

Unhealthy fatty heartThis picture is an ugly reality of what excess body fat does to our vital organs.

A fatty heart is no joke and it’s a reality for so many people. When we overeat and don’t exercise, we are making our heart work so hard to keep us alive. No food is worth that. Being comfortable now on the couch isn’t worth being bound to a couch for the rest of your later life. We have to fight for our health.

 
We can’t be who God created us to be if we aren’t around or in good enough health to be a blessing to others. A number on a scale or pants size is just a tiny part of fitness. LIVING a healthy life is more valuable than riches or abs. At the end of your life, you are not going to regret not having abs. You’ll regret not taking care of your life or regret not being able to keep up with your grandkids, etc. Health is #1.

Healthy Heart10 HEART HEALTHY TIPS:

1. Lose weight and keep it off
2. Limit sodium intake (season with herbs & spices)
3. Eat a healthy low-fat diet (healthy fats vs fried food)
4. Avoid and/or limit processed carbs and sugars
5. Nourish your body with quality vitamins and minerals
6. Rest, relax and reduce stress in your life (adaptogens are awesome for helping reduce the effects of stress & anxiety)
7. Eat more fish
8. Maintain a high-fiber diet
9. Lift weights – Yes! It works more than just muscles!
10. Exercise your cardiovascular system
Notice how I included lifting weights AND cardiovascular exercise? Did you know thut pumping iron does more than just pump up your muscles?

cardio vs weightsCARDIO VS WEIGHTS

Studies have shown that resistance exercises produced a different pattern of blood vessel responses than the aerobic exercise, suggesting that the former may have important and unique benefits for cardiovascular health. The resistance exercise produced greater increases in blood flow to the limbs—even though it also caused small increases in central arterial stiffness. In contrast, aerobic exercise decreased arterial stiffness—but without an increase in blood flow.
 
Resistance exercise also led to a longer-lasting drop in blood pressure (as much as 20 percent) after exercise, compared to aerobic exercise. (Resourse: Great article in Men’s Health)

heart rate GET IN THE ZONE

You can predict your Maximum Heart Rate by subtracting your age from 220. It’s called the Maximum Predicted Heart Rate (MPHR). An MPHR, for example, for a 50-year-old is 220 minus 50, or 170 beats per minute. But your MPHR can vary by as much as 10 to 15 beats per minute compared to your actual Maximum Heart Rate. Invariably, an exercise tolerance test is a better predictor of your actual Maximum Heart Rate.

TRAINING HEART RATE

Your Training Heart Rate is the range in which your heart should be beating during exercise to get optimum aerobic conditioning. Where are Polar Heart Rate Monitor for best results. 
 
Moderate intensity -Training Heart Rate is 60 to 75% of your Maximum Heart Rate.
Vigorous intensity – Training Heart Rate is higher than 75% of your Maximum Heart Rate.

8 Things to Look For When Shopping Supplements

BONNIE PFIESTERWHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT?!

What do you look for in nutritional products? A certain amount or type of protein? A product that promises results? Organic ingredients? Something you can “feel”? Sadly, what is important to me NOW  was no not even on my radar just 2 years ago.

I admit I used to have a very narrow-minded view of supplements. I looked for specific things that were “important” to me, not necessarily important. As a result, I was pouring products into my body that were not healthy for me at all. I was irresponsible – ignorant, really. Out of sight, out of mind. I looked for ingredients I recognized and ignored the rest. NO MORE!!

My criteria has completely changed and I thought I’d share with you what I now look for when choosing products for my health and fitness goals.

NUTRITION1. Complete nourishment

When you are dieting, you are cutting calories and cutting nutrients so you are underfed and malnourished. Even if you are just watching what you eat to be healthy, it’s hard to get all the nutrients you need in our food today.

This is why it is so important to look for nutrient rich ingredients that are loaded with vitamins and minerals so your body is completely satisfied nutritionally. This is not only good for you, it prevents your body from searching for missing nutrients, which translates to cravings. I find I’m more satisfied, fuller longer and feel so much better all the way around when I am getting a good daily dose of vitamins and minerals.

Taste used to be #1, then protein grams and calories, never looking at what I was really putting in my body.

When reading the label, compare the list of vitamins to other products. Which product has the most vitamins and minerals? Which products seems the most complete? The more good stuff you get, the better investment you are making!

2. Zero chemicals

no chemicalsChemicals are in EVERYTHING! They are in our snacks, seasonings, condiments, prepackaged foods and most every day kitchen staple. Even organic stuff can have MSG or other unnecessary additives so you really need to watch labels. I almost expect to see junk in 90% of the stuff on grocery shelves, but that stuff shouldn’t be in “health food”. Unfortunately, 95% of stuff even in “nutrition shops” are also loaded with the same bad junk, from soy protein, fillers, sweeteners, artificial flavors and chemicals.

If I am going to spend my hard-earned money on good nutrition and supplements, I do not want to spend it on products that are laced with arsenic, so why would I want it laced with other stuff that could be harmful to my body – or not be useful and good for me at best?

YUM3. Yum Factor

Yes, that is important. If it doesn’t taste great, you won’t stick with it. I refuse to eat anything that is gross. Period. I don’t care what the package promises. YOM YOM!

puzzle4. Products that work together.

I no longer use different brands. I used to be the QUEEN of mix-match nutrition. However, over this last year, I realized that piecing your supplements together (whether to save money or get what tastes good) creates holes and overlaps in your nutrition.

When you get products that are designed to work together, you can be confident that you are not wasting your money on ingredients you don’t need or have too much of.

Grass fed undenatured whey5. Quality protein

My top choice for protein is the healthiest protein on the market, called undenatured whey. It’s a high quality protein from grass fed antibiotic-free happy, healthy cows that does not go through the denaturing process (which strips it of awesome health benefits). It is highly absorbable and bioavailable (meaning our body can use it easily). I look for protein that has ZERO fillers so that every gram of protein is used to heal, repair and build my body’s strength for optimal health. (Learn more about undenatured whey)

Holistic Nutrition6. Holistic ingredients and remedies.

While I have never been a tree hugging holistic health nut that never eats pizza, I do love it when I can find holistic remedies for common issues like restless sleep, inflammation, pain, immune weakness, stress, mental fog, etc. I never used those products simply because I had no idea how powerful natural nutritional supplements (like adaptogens) and remedies really were. Once I gave them a try, there really was not a lot of need for Advil and Monster energy drinks.

Also, many medicines only get rid of symptoms, when the ideal solution is to find ways to actually get rid of the problem itself, not just the symptoms.

easy-button7. Easy, practical, maintainable

I used to alway look for the fast fix. Now I look for solutions that are practical, and something I can do for life (not just for a season). Fad diets and fast fixes are rarely healthy or something you can maintain longterm. I’m looking for healthy LIVING nutritional support; things I can do everyday that are manageable both financially and realistically in my life. I want to LIVE, not STARVE. I don’t want to be a slave to popping pills or extreme workouts.

anti aging8. Healthy aging support.

I wish I realized I was already starting the aging process before it showed up in my crows feet and back pain. Sadly, I didn’t realize it until I started experiencing the painful effects of aging – wrinkles, pain, skin issues, stiffness, etc.

So many companies focus on outward aesthetics and immediate “affects”, and spend most of their money on marketing to get fast customers and fast money. Many of them even bank on you not even using their stuff. for long. Besides, they will just market a “new and improved” version to keep you spending money with them. I love it when a company invests research and resources on making quality products that are scientifically proven to go the distance. I love when I can find added ingredients to support overall longterm health, not just good looking ads or products that just taste good.

Companies that put a lot of effort into adding ingredients in products to support longevity will stay in business because they will have lasting happy healthy customers. For example, the vitamins I take has years of research behind them, offering a lot of extra support like Coenzyme Q-10, sex-specific support and telomere support, which is something I have yet to see in any other mainstream company.

I mean, if I’m going to take a vitamin pak, pack that sucker with everything you’ve got to help me aging gracefully! :)

5 Ways to Make Fitness Fads Work for You

fitness accessoriesFads come and go, but what is here to stay is the fact we will always have a new trend arriving on the scene. Why? Because we always need something new in our life. We get tired of the same styles, same workouts, same foods, same TV shows, etc; and the same goes for fitness.

Are some fads better than other fads? Sure, maybe. But, sometimes it is not as much about something being better as something just being different. Different in of itself can be better.

Sure, products can always improve. But, in the fitness world, something new (even if it isn’t a technological break through) can be just what we need to get us started or take us to the next step simply because it’s new.

fitness trackersWhy Fit Fads Really Fail

The latest DVD, tennis shoe, workout program, fitness equipment or accessory will rarely be the end-all be-all. Even if we know this, we often act like these products have magical powers that should motivate us into greatness just by owning them alone. We simply have unrealistic expectations, resulting in failure.

Can they help? Yes.
Can they get you excited for a bit? Yes.
Can they be effective? Yes (if you use them).
But, will you be using it 5 years from now. Probably not, but that’s OK!
They may be EXACTLY what you need right NOW!

5 Ways to Make Fitness Fads Work For You

treadmill coat hangerHere’s my take on fitness fads and how they can help you reach success. First, let’s define fad. Pretty much all fitness gear, fashion and accessories are some type of fad. They are trending today and out tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t helpful. They can be fantastic for us!

The fact is; fitness fads don’t fail us. WE fail us. We ask the wrong questions when contemplating the purchase. If you want success, you have to change your mindset and ask the right questions. You will experience more success when you are honest with yourself and have more realistic expectations.

The fact is, most products work when used. So the question is “will you actually use it?”

5 Questions to ask yourself next time you want to click “BUY NOW!”

1. Could you see yourself using this product over the next 30 days? 

calendarYou don’t have to commit to using your new fit find every day necessarily, but you will have to commit to putting it to good use at least for a period of time. Whether it’s a new pair of shoes or leggings, or it’s a new piece of equipment, decide how often you could use it and set a time period that best matches the investment.

If it’s a small purchase, it should entertain and excite you for a smaller period of time. If it’s a larger investment, it should last you longer. But don’t be surprised if the latest deal of the day didn’t keep you amused for an entire year. Some purchases can be a huge success if they just get you pumped for a few weeks or months.

NK_Women_High_Heel_Shoes_NK_Dunk_SB_Running_Shoes_Sneakers2. Is it ideal?

Often times we settle for something when it’s not exactly what we were looking for. I do this with clothes all the time. Just because it’s on sale, doesn’t mean it’s a good buy. If it is the right style but it’s the wrong color, then you likely won’t wear it. If you don’t wear it often, it’s not a good purchase. However, even if something is more expensive, but you know you will really put it to good use, it’s worth every penny!

hamster treadmill3. Is it practical?

Some products are perfect, but just not perfect for you. You can buy an amazing piece of equipment or fitness tool but if it’s not practical, you won’t use it.

Do you have the right place for it in your home?
Is it convenient?
Is it comfortable to use?

Even the best product on the market may not be best for you if you can’t easily put it to good use.

excited shopper4. Does it get you excited?

This may sound silly but one thing most of us are not excited about is sweating and getting out of breath. Exercise is work, so if you can find a product that gets you pumped, then you are on to something.

What gets me excited? Fitness apparel and accessories. Gym bags, workout clothes, shoes, headphones, activity trackers, new workouts and new tunes get me excited. Since I am not super stoked to exercise, I purposefully invest in things that make fitness more fun for me.

5. Will it get you closer to your goal?

This is where most people go wrong. They want every purchase to catapult them straight to their goal. However, a good fit find is a success if it just gets you closer to your goal. It doesn’t have to take you straight there all in one shot. Each fitness product you purchase just simply needs to support your goals. If it helps you move in the right direction, then you have made a good investment.

Stop putting so much pressure on the latest workout or product you purchase. Cut it some slack and cut yourself some slack. We need new things in our life – especially along our fitness journey. Keep making these small investments here and there. Remember, progress is success – even if it’s moving closer to your goal one little step at a time.

Here is some footage from my recent visit as a guest on the Healthy You show with Brett Chukerman on HSN, where I talk about this very topic.
