Day 26: Fruit Lover? Who isn’t!

Fruits are definitely a lot more fun to eat as opposed to vegetables.  They’re sweeter and have a better texture in my opinion.

Here are my top 10 ways I incorporate fruit into my diet:

  1. Whole grain toast and peanut butter with sliced bananas for a pre-workout
  2. mixed berries in my oatmeal with chia seeds
  3. Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice (no sugar added and pulp still in the glass) with my breakfast or as a snack
  4. In a fruit smoothie with mint leaves and herbalife wild berry or peach mango beverage drink mix
  5. When my carbs are low for the day I love organic dried mango slices (be careful that the ONLY ingredient is mango
  6. Whole grain crackers and peanut butter with sliced berries on top
  7. Banana and Peanut Butter for a quick and fulfilling snack
  8. As dessert with some drizzled cookie butter
  9. I love putting lemon slices in my water whenever I’m tired of plain water
  10. Dried fruit is a killer additive to homemade trail mix

Day 12: How to fight Burnout

So this post is supposed to be advice on how to handle summer blogging burnout, but since I do not by any means consider myself a blogger, I’m going to write about summer fitness goal burnout.

Because this society views fitness in short term, versus long term, people spend the first 3-4 months of the year shedding their holiday wait and prepping for the summer only to slowly fall into a downward spiral to repeat the same toxic cycle over when the new year hits.

So, how do you break the cycle?  I get that summer is hard because you have more BBQs, More vacations, more time to go to the beach, go out, but what about the goals you’ve worked so hard to achieve?  How do you keep them in Check?  There’s no need to avoid going out in order to avoid gaining weight.

10 Tips to Making you Summer body, your winter Body:

  1. Keep Alcohol to 1-3 drinks a week
  2. Don’t drink your calories in juices, sodas, etc.
  3. Make healthy choices at restaurants!  Most places have a light and fit menu with more realistic portion sizes.
  4. Request cutting the salt a restaurant uses for the dish in half, or excluding it altogether because chances are they hide salt in the sauces without realizing it.
  5. Don’t skip your workouts!
  6. Replace a meal with a healthy shake!  I’ve been drinking the same meal replacement every day for 4 years now and love it! Definitely helps keep me in check when I’ve gone too far passed moderation!  Click here for more info!
  7. Don’t forget your water!  Avoid retaining water, skin break outs, and dehydration from the summer heat!
  8. Swap the fried for the grilled!
  9. Swap the processed sugars for REAL sugars found in fruits, vegetables, and grains.
  10. It’s ok to eat the pizza and have the slice of cake!  It’s just not ok to eat more of that than you do whole foods!

New Nutrition Labels

A while back I did a post on how to read nutrition labels, but that post will soon be irrelevant as nutrition labels are changing for the better!

There are 6 key “things” that will be rolling out from summer of this year all the way until July of 2018!

  1. Serving: “The number of “servings per container” and the “Serving Size” declaration have increased and are now in larger and/or bolder type. Serving sizes have been updated to reflect what people actually eat and drink today. For example, the serving size for ice cream was previously 1/2 cup and now is 2/3 cup. There are also new requirements for certain size packages, such as those that are between one and two servings or are larger than a single serving but could be consumed in one or multiple sittings.”
  2. Calories: Soon will be bigger and bolder
  3. Fats: “Calories from Fat” has been removed because research shows the type of fat consumed is more important than the amount.”
  4. Added Sugars: ““Added Sugars” in grams and as a percent Daily Value (%DV) is now required on the label. “Added Sugars” include sugars that have been added during the processing or packaging of a food. Scientific data shows that it is difficult to meet nutrient needs while staying within calorie limits if you consume more than 10 percent of your total daily calories from added sugar.”
  5. Nutrients: The lists of nutrients that are required or permitted on the label have been updated. Vitamin D and potassium are now required on the label because Americans do not always get the recommended amounts. Vitamins A and C are no longer required since deficiencies of these vitamins are rare today. The actual amount (in milligrams or micrograms) in addition to the %DV must be listed for vitamin D, calcium, iron, and potassium. The daily values for nutrients have also been updated based on newer scientific evidence. The daily values are reference amounts of nutrients to consume or not to exceed and are used to calculate the %DV.
  6. Foot Note: “The footnote at the bottom of the label has changed to better explain the meaning of %DV. The %DV helps you understand the nutrition information in the context of a total daily diet.”

Your idea of average is not always someone else’s.

I feel like there are 3 types of people in this world:

Person A:  Is happy with a 9-5, never wants to put in anything extra, is happy with doing just enough to get by.

Person B:  Works a “9-5” but is always putting in extra hours, going the extra mile in attempt to climb the corporate ladder and do better for themselves within corporate America

Person C (aka me): The entrepreneur.  The person who lives breathes and sleeps their business.  The person who would rather sit at home on a friday and saturday night and put in work.  The person whose ambitions go beyond the typical owning a house, living a middle class life, being satisfied with a few vacations a year, or being ok with requesting days off.  The person who wants to create a legacy.

Whichever person you are, i’m here to tell you IT’S OKAY!  Whatever brings you happiness is what matters.  Where my BIGGEST issue lies is when people try to get others to conform to their own personal level of average or feel bad for not thinking the same as others.

If you are person A do NOT try and bring down person C because they want more than what you want.  If you are person C except that person A is not like you and look for more B’s and C’s to hang around.  My biggest pet peevs are when people patronize the go getters and the doers for doing too much, not living in the moment, blah blah.  The same way I hate when entrepreneurs try to convert people who fall in my A category to the B or C category.

Becoming aware of what you think is average and understanding that everyone has their own idea of what average is, is something that is ok.  If you are a person B or C my biggest piece of advice is get rid of the A’s in your life.  They aren’t like you, nor will they ever be like you.  They won’t make you rise to the next level, they won’t tell you to keep going when you want to quit, they will tell you that leaving a legacy doesn’t really matter.  It’s ok for people to fall under the A category, but its not ok for you (a B or a C) to succumb to the thoughts of an A person.

Let the A’s hang with the A’s.

B’s and C’s need to stick together, motivate each other, better each other, and create legacies together.

Establish who you are and become ok with it.  There is nothing wrong with either person, but if people were meant to be the same we wouldn’t need employees, managers, bosses, or owners.

Health = Success

This past weekend I attended the 10X Growth Conference put on by Grant Cardone.  Aside from all of the information that was given to help with our sales and overall business, one thing that really stuck to me was said by one of the speakers, Lewis Howes.  He said that one of the things we really had to focus on in order to reach our goals was our health.  As a fitness coach, I view health as a necessity for quality of life, preventing diseases, etc.  He did not even touch on that.  His perspective was if you’re body is not functioning at 100%, you cannot produce at 100%.

I agree 100% I reflected on the times I got lazy, or was half assing things (aka being lazy) it had a direct correlation to my diet.  I was off my game eating tons of artificial sugars, making poor choices, and naturally I felt lethargic.  Not only did I feel lethargic, but I felt embarrassed from all of the weight gain, which kept me from promoting what I do.  Where as the times i’m on fire my diet is clean, I’m eating energy yielding foods, and I feel good.  That feeling gives me energy and motivation to keep going, expand, reach out to more people.  Health really does equal wealth, not just for the usual reasons given by people.

Reflect on yourself for a second:  Do you think your current health status is affecting your success levels, your drive, etc? Do something about it!  I am more than 100% happy to help! Whether its through fitness or nutrition guidance, maybe even both!  I’ve got your back!  Shoot me an email! LetlerFit@gmail.com
