You Got This! I live by these words, they are the base of my passion for fitness, I say them to my clients on a daily basis, I say them to myself on a daily basis and that's how I end every JZTrainedme Fitness post. Simple to say...sometimes harder to believe.
This past Mother's Day, my husband got me the best give ever! No, not jewelry or flowers or candy...he bought these letters from Hobby Lobby and hung them up for me. He knows I absolutely love thoughtful gifts, not just the typical, hallmark holiday obligatory gifts and I was so touched by his attentiveness to my work and my career.
I love reading those words every morning when I workout. It makes me think of how important he has been to my journey and my success. It's coming up on almost two years ago that I started my business, JZTrainedme Fitness. It was scary, it was risky, it was definitely a different type of income stream and yet his support has been never ending. He believes in me, he's always lets me know that he's proud of me and when I have those moments of doubt, he reminds that it's all going to be okay by saying those three amazing words: "You Got This".
I'm so thankful and appreciative of everything he does for our family and everything he has done for me to help me live my passion for helping others on a daily basis. I absolutely love what I do for a living and every single day there is a moment that reminds me of how lucky I am to be living out my dreams and I know I couldn't have done any of that without him.
So thank you Mike for the best gift ever...those letters may not have been very expensive but they, along with your support, will always be priceless to me! ❤
First off....let me start this post by reminding you...you are not perfect however, you are human. When you eat a bad meal or two or even just have a bad "eating" day, why do you feel the need to punish yourself? It's time to put a stop to that way of thinking though I know it's easier said than done.
So you ate the pizza, you drank a lot of beer, you devoured the ice cream cake, you went back for seconds...all human...all normal and all OKAY! This is no different than when you miss a day or even two of working out. You wouldn't stop working out because you missed a day of working out would you? Hopefully not and therefore you shouldn't not eat or eat substantially less because you made some bad choices.
Food is nourishment, not a punishment, so if you think that depriving yourself of food is a means of getting back on track because you went overboard on your daily calorie goal by 1,000 the day before, you are wrong. If you under eat or choose not to eat at all because of the bad choices you made the day before you are neglecting your nourishment - you fed your body unhealthy foods so not feeding your body any foods or barely any at all will not help, in fact, it's the opposite. You made bad food choices the day before and fed your body food that doesn't support your goals so the best way to get back on track is to eat according to your daily caloric goal by making healthy choices while still managing your macros and practicing consistency.
Remember one unhealthy meal won't ruin your progress just like one healthy meal won't make you fit. It takes consistency not punishment. Two wrongs don't make a right but consistently good choices will right the wrongs!
My true passion is health and wellness and helping others achieve and maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle through strength training, cardio training and optimal nutritional choices. Everyone has what it takes to achieve their goals - all you need is the right motivation, guidance, and education to help get you there.
