New Years Resolutions: Changing my body

This picture here describes what happens to many of you every year. January 1st you are bursting with motivation and all fired up to change your body but as time goes on you slowly start falling off.

This is evident in the gyms as well and I see it all the time. Between January and March the gym’s are packed with people who want to change the way they look and to make a lifestyle change or for some they just ate to much over Christmas.

Whatever your reason…Don’t be a quitter!

I totally understand that it’s not easy to stick to a goal or to stay consistent, I’ve been there. But I’ve managed to over come this minor step back and so can you.

2013 is a good time to start doing things you said you was going do this year but just didn’t get round to. New Year, New start, New things.

Make your goals now and I will work with you in 2013 to achieve those goals. In the meantime, check some of my previous post on staying motivated and consistent.

I sincerely wish you all a Happy New Year & send nothing but peace and love to you all. Stay Blessed.

Body Fat Levels

Here’s a selection of pictures I found the other day showing body fat percentages for both men and women.

What body fat level looks good to you?

What do you strive for 2013?

What level do you think you are sitting at now that Christmas is over? LOL, did you go from 15% to 25%?

Whatever your situation, I will work with you in 2013 to achieve your goals.

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you?….. Not much.

The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.

Hello boys and girls. We are getting closer and closer to Christmas and already people are telling me the pounds are slowly creeping on LOL. It’s all good though, treat yourself’s but slow down on the ice cream everyday.

Tip #4 today is – Eat Slower.

Did you know that it takes around 20 minutes for your brain to register that you’re full. I’ve covered this before but I’ll cover it again for those who missed out.

Say it’s Christmas day and you have a buffet style meal sitting in front of you waiting to be destroyed. Do you think you could eat it all without the uncomfortable bloat and the guilt trip after…

A lot of times when we are surrounded by food (and lot’s of it) we tend to eat pretty fast -especially when the food taste good. Have you ever been in that situation where you’re full but you still keep going cause the food taste so good – I’ve been there 🙂

Just slow it down a little. Take your time and chew the food slowly, no need to pig out. Appreciate the aroma’s and the flavours of the seasonings that bind together so wonderfully. 

Just by eating slower you will realise that you don’t actually need so much food. You will avoid over eating which leads to the inevitable weight gain.

Here are 5 reasons below you should start Eating Slower:

1) Lose weight – A growing number of studies confirm that just by eating slower, you’ll consume fewer calories — in fact, enough to lose 20 pounds a year without doing anything different or eating anything different.

2) Enjoy your food – This reason is just as powerful, in my opinion. It’s hard to enjoy your food if it goes by too quickly. In fact, I think it’s fine to eat sinful foods, if you eat a small amount slowly. Think about it: you want to eat sinful foods (desserts, fried foods, pizza, etc.) because they taste good. But if you eat them fast, what’s the point? If you eat them slowly, you can get the same amount of great taste, but with less going into your stomach.

3) Better digestion – If you eat slower, you’ll chew your food better, which leads to better digestion. Digestion actually starts in the mouth, so the more work you do up there, the less you’ll have to do in your stomach. This can help lead to fewer digestive problems.

4) Less stress – Eating slowly, and paying attention to our eating, can be a great form of mindfulness. Be in the moment, rather than rushing through a meal thinking about what you need to do next. When you eat, you should eat. This kind of mindfulness will lead to a less stressful life and long-term happiness.

5) Rebel against fast food and fast life – Our hectic, fast-paced, stressful, chaotic lives — the Fast Life — leads to eating Fast Food, and eating it quickly. This is a lifestyle that is dehumanizing us, making us unhealthy, stressed out, and unhappy. We rush through our day, doing one mindless task after another, without taking the time to live life, to enjoy life, to relate to each other, to be human. That’s not a good thing in my book. Instead, rebel against that entire lifestyle and philosophy … with the small act of eating slower. Don’t eat Fast Food. Eat at a good restaurant, or better yet, cook your own food and enjoy it fully. Taste life itself.

If you are a fast eater, after reading this, will you slow down…..
