You are your Biggest Excuse

Last month I finally decided to stop using school (I never use work) as an excuse to not make it to the gym and get my workout in. You know what happened? The week I declared that, a million and one extra obstacles (i.e. a term paper, quizzes, an exam, 2 assignments) all popped up in one week! ⠀

When you declare that you will no longer be using your specific excuse as an excuse isn’t it funny how all of the sudden that excuse is magnified whether it be extra school work, extra work hours, your kids getting sick, emergency vet bills, household appliances break, your car breaks down, whatever it is….extra obstacles are created. Making it easier for you to continue using it as an excuse, but this is where you need to dig deep and realize it’s life testing the commitment you made to yourself.⠀

There will ALWAYS be something to make excuses for, your life can always get harder, but what separates the goal achievers from the wannabes are the ones who are conscious about the excuses they make and do NOT let them get in the way of your goals.⠀

What is EBP? Why is it important?

Let’s talk about Evidence Based Practice (EBP). What is it? EBP “is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual client. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research.”⠀

How does this pertain to fitness? Somewhere a long the line genetically gifted people who have no issues putting aside their moral beliefs for a nice pay check decided to say fuck EBP and go with whatever is going to make larger sums of money despite the harm it could potentially cause the people who fall for the gimmicks. I get it, business is business, but there really ought to be a line people are willing to not cross, ESPECIALLY when it comes to the human body. Whether you realize it or not exercise greatly affects our body, not just in our external physical appearance, but internally as well. You go to a doctor because they have a medical degree, you see a physical therapist because they have their DPT, so why do you go to a “personal trainer” who just has genetics going for them and doesn’t even have a CPT. Just because something works for that person does NOT mean it’s going to work for you. We are all DIFFERENT in our own ways, those differences should be tackled in a way that REAL science (fuck bro science) supports, in a way that’s not going to have you pulling muscles left and right, constantly feeling beat up, creating hormonal imbalances, and the list goes on. Next time you seek fitness advice, I challenge you to find out about their level of education about the human body and how it responds to exercise.⠀

7 Ways to Change Your Think About Exercising

We’ve all heard the saying, 80% nutrition, 20% exercise, and 100% mindset.  As cliche as it sounds, fitness really is a mindset.  It’s not a chore, it’s something that should become a part of who we are.

  • We must stop thinking of exercise as a punishment for eating something bad.  Far too often I hear “I need to burn off what I just ate.” or “I can’t get off the treadmill until I burn the 250 calories that were in the chocolate bar.”  That is so wrong in so many different ways.  Exercise is NOT a punishment, it is a BLESSING.  We are not paralyzed, we are not confined to a wheel chair, we have the ability to MOVE, and therefore are blessed to be able to to exercise.  Even then, we’ve all seen the para-olympic athletes…so even then many of the disability excuses become invalid.  But I’m not here to talk about the minority.
  • Exercise is a part of life.  The same way eating, sleeping, and working, are part of life exercise should be as well.  We need to stop thinking about it as something on our “to do” list.
  • Exercising CORRECTLY, (I emphasize the word correctly because every time I walk into a gym I see a lot of people herniating discs, or torn meniscus in the making.  Simple because people lack the proper education) allows us to grow old gracefully and with less aches and pains.
  • Exercise not only allows us to age more gracefully physiologically, but it also allows us to look better in the process…who doesn’t like to look better naked.
  • Exercise is FUN!  Find a way that makes it fun for you, because we are all different some activities are more fun for some than others, so find what is fun for YOU.
  • Exercise energizes! Hate constantly feeling sluggish?  Exercise allows us to have more energy throughout the day.  Many people workout at night and then complain they could not sleep because they had so much energy, imagine if you did your workout first thing in the morning and started your day with all of that energy.
  • Exercise is point blank a MINDSET.

How does your mindset all  you to make exercise a part of your lifestyle?

15 Fitness Quotes To Get You Moving

Today’s post brought to you by some of my favorite pinned fitness quotes!

  1. “Stay so Hungry, you never Stop Eating.” trademarked by yours truly! -Melissa Letellier.  How bad do you want to reach and set new goals?
  2. “Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally, but from what you do consistently.”  Going to the gym 6 days one week and never stepping foot in it again for another 4 weeks is way less effective then going 2-3x every week.
  3. “In 2 weeks you’ll feel it.  In 4 weeks you’ll see it.  In 8 weeks you’ll hear it.”  Sometimes we need the extrinsic motivation to continually light the fire.
  4. “At first they’ll ask why you’re doing it, later they’ll ask how you did it.”
    When I started by journey I got so many negative remarks about why I’m always on a diet.  Some of those same people were now forced into a continuous restrictive diet due to medical reasons while the lifestyle I built allows me to continue reaching new goals while enjoying pizza and donuts every now and then.
  5. “I’m working on myself, for myself, by myself.”  Sometimes the road is lonely, but you should always be your biggest reason why.  Not for revenge, not to make someone jealous, to make YOU happy.
  6. “When you feel like stopping, think about why you started.”  It’s normal to lose motivation, it’s normal to get “derailed,” but at the end of the day if your reason why is bigger than your reason why not…you will get there
  7. “Do it for the after selfie.”  While my fitness journey was for me, i’m still human.  It feels good to prove people wrong and brag about my hard earned accomplishments, don’t feel ashamed for what you’ve worked for!
  8. “Slow progress is better than no progress!”  It’s normal for your body to see more progress at the beginning.  Don’t feel discouraged when the pound that once took you 3 days to lose now takes you a week.  It’s stilling coming off and better than putting the pound of fat back on!
  9. “You are your only limit.” This can be applied to everywhere in life, not just your health and fitness.
  10. “Remember when your body is hungry it wants nutrients, not calories.”  This one is HUGE for me!  In a world obsessed with counting calories and macros, we often forget that vitamins and minerals also exist and are also equally important.
  11. “Workout because you love your body, not because you hate it.”  Yes it’s ok to want to change your body with exercise but remember to never take for granted the ability to exercise!  Not everyone can!  Exercise should also not be used as a punishment for eating a cookie.
  12. “I don’t diet, I just eat according to my goals.”  Seriously, it’s why it’ a lifestyle.  Diets are short term and never  work.
  13. “Sweat is Pretty.”  Sweat is a sign of good hydration, your body regulating heat the way it should be, and working hard!  So many women are afraid to sweat i public for fear of looking gross or smelling bad.  Be proud of your work and being well hydrated!
  14. “Fall in love with taking care of your body.”  As cliche as it sounds, you really do only get one body!  What body do you want to take with your through life as you age?
  15. “Create healthy habits, not restrictions.”  It’s not about never eating the cookie, the pizza, or the donut.  It’s about choose the fruits and the vegetables more than you do the cookie, the pizza, or the donut.

Get LetlerFit the Personalized Way

With the launch of the NEW LetlerFit.com I now officially publicly advertise my customized online training.

If you read yesterday’s blog post you know that I touched on the major differences between my e-book guides and personal training.

If you can check off any of the following I definitely recommend my online personal training:

  • Have any mobility limitations from past or current injuries
  • Have any diagnosed medical condition
  • Have specific goals
  • Want a training program that is 100% customized for your body and fitness level (everyone is different!)
  • want guidance and accountability

All of my clients begin with my online Needs Analysis (i’ll be touching up on this tomorrow).  What may differ between one client and the next are the different packages available:

  • Just the program:  This is for someone who has a good idea about how to perform the exercises and wants a program to cater to them and any specific goals or needs, but also does not want the coaching or accountability
  • Weekly Check Ins:  Your program will come with a 60 minute weekly check in to go over any questions, video critiques of you performing your exercises, etc.
  • Unlimited Coaching:  This is for the person that wants full access to me during the month of training to ask questions, record and send videos to, while still getting a personalized program
