8 Weeks to Fit with Diane! (Grandbaby not Included 😁)

 

Super cute today… My little pumpkin decided to join me while I was doing my killer legs workout this morning… He wasn’t working out though… He was decking himself out in all of my workout exercise bands and slides LOL 😂

In the end, when It came time for me to do my stretches, he decided to make himself a “sleigh” out of my exercise mat and said he was going to slide down the hill with it 😂. 

Never a dull moment with my little pumpkin around LOL.   😍😍

I am almost done the second round of my eight week program and in fact… I only have two workouts left for the week and I will be done! ✅ 

I am starting another round of the same program again on Monday morning (Nov 12) if you wants to challenge yourself to eight weeks of fitness and nutrition with me in a private group?  

Please SHARE with anyone you think may be interested!   It’s going to be 8 weeks of special nutrition coaching for fat loss and muscle building!  (Targeted for female body type but will work for males too! 😁)

I need to get in the best shape EVER for a cruise I am going on first week of January, and I will bring you along the ride if you are interested! 😁💪🏻💪🏻. Let’s do this!!!

Belief in Yourself is Everything!

Belief in yourself trumps everything when it comes to achievement in life

In order to achieve great things or things that you perceive as challenging, what it really takes is a firm belief in yourself…

How many times do we let self-doubt get in the way of us achieving something really important? The lack of faith in ourselves can really get in the way of achieving important things in life… It holds us back from making decisions, creates uncertainty, and makes facing fears and having courage much more difficult.

Having self-belief can lead to incredible achievements in health and fitness, marriage, relationships, career, business, making a positive change in the world, and so much more!

When we don’t believe in ourselves, it completely stalls our progress and makes us more sensitive to the critical reviews and opinions around us as we try to move forward…

Belief in yourself creates an unshakeable strength that is more resilient and powerful to allow you achieve anything that you want in life. It will give you power to easily solve problems and find solutions and to live a positive and fulfilled life.

Never underestimate the power of having belief in yourself!

I had a firm belief in myself this morning that I could lift heavier weight to make the most progress with this round of lifting… I just completed day two of week five today sweaty and feeling accomplished after lifting heavy for back and biceps… It’s a great feeling! 😁

Take some time today to work on analyzing what areas of your life you’re lacking belief in yourself and really work on this because it will make a huge difference in your life! ( and if you really have a hard time doing this then maybe it’s time to get yourself a coach for some help!)

Granny has Good Reasons (So it keeps her going!)

Persistence pays off…..its easier to stay persistent through the tough times with a strong reason

Pushing through those tired and challenging days is worth it when you start to notice the increase strength and progress in muscle development.  In only 6 weeks, I progressed from 20 lb ea hand dumbbells doing a lat row to 30 lb in ea hand!   ..and it felt difficult but amazing afterwards!   My back was feeling so pumped up, it was time to capture that in a pic 😁💪🏻. Gotta love progress!!😁

 

Persistence certainly pays off and when it comes to health…it’s worth the work!  My goal is to be an active and healthy Granny for my grandkids and not get prematurely old and out of shape…my reasons to be healthy are what pull me along even on the most challenging and tired days!  Let’s GO!

Its time to work on your health, lose excess weight and get stronger!!  The time is NOW!

Choose your Hard (Smile and Say Cheese!)

I pick the “hard” of working on my health.. Its tough, but absolutely worth the effort. 🙂 cheese! 🙂

A picture speaks a thousand words…. And can really help you to see that you’re making progress in the work that you’re doing to improve your health… And… When you do see progress… It jacks up the motivation and keeps you moving forward with a smile…😁

This morning… The triceps and the chest really got a butt kicking… The triceps were really pumped up after that and had an impressive look which  made me smile 😃 💪🏻. After that, I put in a 15 minute HIIT workout to burn some extra fat since I kind of overdid it yesterday on the mixed nuts LOL

Working on your health some days is really hard… and it takes constant work and attention.   But remember that feeling tired, miserable, overweight, and just generally depressed is also very hard (I used to be there and I would rather take this hard!!).  … I say… Pick your hard and decide what’s worth it for you.   

For the long term, I’d rather put in the work and be healthy and have good energy and feel positive and motivated for each day.  How about you?  What “hard” are you going to choose?

I would say pick the healthy hard and… As you make progress, take pictures and notice how well you’re doing… And just know that it’s so worth it!  …Say “cheese!” 🙂

Get going to balance hormones! (Become a Fit Grandparent)

Maintaining lean body mass is an important way to maintain a healthy body composition and minimize natural aging!

 

As we age, we typically lose lean body mass and gain fat mass… It’s a natural change that occurs with our body composition. However, we can fight this by working on maintaining our lean body mass through lifting and burning fat through exercise… When our body composition is more balanced, we naturally have a stronger and more balanced signalling systems in our body which naturally keeps up our energy and our hormone balance as well.   

The moment you sit by and allow the natural body composition change to occur, you will see fat build up around the middle, and muscle mass on limbs and body start to decline… Do not let this happen if you can help it!  Fighting this will keep you younger longer, keep you well, and keep up your energy…   If you’re like me… as a grandma, I want to be able to keep up to my three-year-old grandson and I do not want to be sitting in a chair, being tired, lazy, and weak, because my body has aged too much…no thanks!

We can fight this natural aging process and it just takes a bit of work a few times a week to build muscle mass, to reduce fat and to re-balance of hormones and then look and feel much younger as a result!   Incorporating clean/whole food eating lifestyle, adding superfoods and eliminating pop and junk/processed food will get you there even faster!

Without your health, what do you really have?  We all want energy and a sense of well-being and we know how much it changes our life when we feel good!!. Get started now and make a change for the better! Improve the quality of your life, change your body composition, balance those hormones, and build some muscles! It’s not that hard, and it only takes work a few days a week to get it done!

Getting yourself a nutrition and fitness coach can also make all the difference… And I definitely recommend it as it made such a big difference for me. It made such a difference in fact… that I decided to become a coach myself and I even took special training on strategic intervention so that I could be the most effective coach possible for you.

if you have been looking for a completely new approach a new way to get into good shape… Perhaps it’s time to message me and to get onto a program with the support of coach.  Don’t delay..there is no time like NOW to get going and get those hormones and muscles in check!

Grit and Determination Will Get You There

Rolling with punches and challenges, keeping a stiff upper lip, and moving forward with determination and grit helps you to achieve any goal you have

It took absolutely everything I had to get out of bed this morning… After the last two days of the new HIIT and lift program, my shoulders, arms, chest, and especially triceps are super sore and I just feel so tired out.  

Before just giving up, I got up and had some energize and some exogenous ketones to fire me up… I waited 15 minutes and then could feel (sort of) enough zip and energy to get myself downstairs to hit play.  

Some days, it definitely takes real grit determination and pushing yourself to really get the workout of the day done early in the morning.   Even if you are a person who works out often, starting a new program really fires up muscles you have not been using in the same way!!   This is why starting new programs can really help to break plateau and take fitness to a whole new level!  I am up for this! 🙂

Today, I did an intense 20 min HIIT workout to burn some fat and a 20 min stretch and recovery to prepare myself for the next 2 days of lifting!  Now I feel much better, and ready to face a busy day of work and helping others…

HIIT and Lift your Way to Health (…with me!)

The beauty of HIIT workouts is that you can do a very short workout and burn a tonne of fat!   In today’s world, things are so busy and it feels like were all so short on time… So, we need a workout that’s going to give us maximum benefit in the shortest amount of time!!    

Ideally, a workout program would include some weights and some HIIT to maximize muscle building as well as fat burning all in one short and sweet workout!!  Now wouldn’t that be awesome?

It was like a dream come true when I heard about a new program coming out that is exactly that!!   Just what I was looking for!!  …

A program that provides structured workouts involving weights and HIIT all in one and… In a short workout only four days a week!   No seriously… That sounds so doable and awesome!   Don’t you think?

Starting in mid July, I have made the decision to lead a small group of motivated busy people through this new program by setting up a private accountability group.  As a very busy grandma and professional, (and business owner), it is ultra important to maintain energy and health not only for myself and my patients… But also for my little grandson who is full of energy at three years old and who wants a grandma that he can go play with outside who won’t get tired out after only a couple minutes LOL 😂 

In order to be effective at coaching and leading you through this program (including nutrition), I am going to limit the participants to 10 to 12.  Those interested in joining this exclusive coaching program will need to apply to join and show that they are truly committed before getting accepted.   

As a bonus for being part of this special program, you will learn to develop a success mindset, learn the benefits of keto as well as how to maximize the power of momentum in your life.  (not to mention prizes for completion and participation as well!)

For questions about this program, comment in comments for this post or send me a private message!   The time is ticking, so we need to have our group set up within the next week!   Deadline for applications is June 30 and we need to have time to order in our supplies for a July 16th start date!

APPLY HERE to join this exclusive group… PLEASE NOTE!   Only apply if you are truly committed to transforming your life!

 

Morning Routines change the Game

Getting up a little earlier in the mornings, getting in a workout, having some quiet time alone to reflect and plan out your day and then having a superfood breakfast pretty much is the best way to start a day!    Oh yes and I have a little energy booster before my workout too just to fire it up just a little more!   

I remember back to the days when I would hardly be able  to drag myself out of bed, get into shower late then be scrambling to get ready in a mad rush.  This was no way to live!  It’s not enjoyable and does not give the day a good start at all!  I was flying by the seat of my pants with no plan or positive feel for what my day was going to be like at all…not good.

With a morning routine that gives you breathing room, time to move your body, reflect, plan your day, have a green superfood breakfast, and breathe…it totally changes the game of life!   You are more productive, positive and happy as a result of starting the day in a good way…and it feels great too😁

Have a terrific Tuesday!!

September, A Great Time for Change

img_4410

I got a great sweat on this morning with a yoga and Pilates continuous movement combination work out… It was really tough but I felt great and was dripping sweat afterwards… I never really thought that I would enjoy this type of exercise, but I’m finding out that it is really improving my health and I’m totally loving it!!

September is approaching and I don’t know about you, but I find September is a great time of year to start new things, develop my knowledge, and get creative by implementing new things into my life. I have always felt this way I guess because September is the start of a new school year and it’s just a great time to start implementing change. Some people get nervous about making changes but it truly is exciting if you make yourself do things outside your comfort zone!

Starting in September, I plan to implement a completely new diet regimen, a new exercise plan, and as well implement a new and exciting career in providing healthcare services with my own business. I am adding this to my already existing health business where I help people with fitness, optimizing their nutrition and lifestyle change as a coach … It is all just very exciting …even though it can be scary at times, I am pushing through the fear!

Make September the decision time to make a change in your life! Take a course! Start a new health plan! Revamp your financial plan! Dig into that relationship you have been afraid to take to the next level! Make a career change! Start a new business!

Do something to make fall time exciting! It makes the transition to winter much easier when you are feeling fulfilled, energized, healthy, happy and passionate about something you love!

FYI… My job as a FREE coach is to help you select the health program that will best help you achieve your goals… Be sure to contact me to discuss!

Accomplishment Fuels Motivation (Oh Yeah!)

OH YES!! after accomplishing this 7-days, I am fired up for 7 more!

Holy crap! Did day number seven of the Shaun T week challenge and it was definitely no joke! Red faced, huffing and puffing, could barely keep up, and in the end I was dripping, smiling, and satisfied that I completed this seven day challenge! Oh yeah! Really hard but so worth it! 😅

I feel so much stronger and fit after only 7 days with Shaun T! I think I am going to do this 7 day challenge AGAIN!!   Are you looking for some motivation to improve your fitness level?  To be able to run faster, go up stairs without getting tired, have more energy?  Well, achieving short challenges really gives rewards for hard work FAST and boost that motivation to amazing levels!  As of yesterday, I really hadn’t planned on doing this challenge again.  Now that I have actually completed it…the sense of accomplishment is so amazing after such a short time, that I have changed my mind!  I am gonna DO IT!

Anyone want to join me starting tomorrow for a 7- day fitness challenge? This 7-day challenge made me realize I was not in good a shape as I thought I was! 😬. So if you think you are ultra-fit…I challenge you to try the next 7 days with me! I dare you!  Come on!  Message me to join our group for the next 7 days!
