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!

Why did I start LetlerFit?

About 2 years before LetlerFit even came into thought my involvement with the Health and Fitness industry had been through tae kwon do when I was younger (to read more about my tae kwon do back ground click here) and as an Herbalife Independent Distributor 4 years and counting!

As someone who want to help as many people as I possibly can I was frustrated because naturally not everyone is interested in Herbalife Nutrition.  It is what it is.  So one day having a conversation with a friend expressing how I wanted to help those not interested as well as a way to better serve my current clients.

And then it dawned on me, I could created a separated independent company/personal brand dedicated to fitness as a way to expand the reach of my mission to empower as many people as possible, especially women into a healthy and active lifestyle.

LetlerFit apparel started because I wanted a way to help women feel confident and make a statement whenever they’re working out.  Before having my own line people loved my unique leggings, clothing, etc. that I wore from other brands so I said why not create my own line that reflects my personality.

Now, 2 Years later LetlerFit has allowed me to help my Herbalife Nutrition clients get on a solid workout regimen and help sedentary women become active and reach their fitness goals.  I couldn’t be more grateful for the LetlerFit fam.

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.

My Challenges Help me more Than my Clients

I Run 3 challenges every year:

  1. A 90 Day New Year Kick Off Challenges with my Fitness Programs
  2. A 4 Week Gallon Challenge utilizing the Herbalife Nutrition Products
  3. a 6 Week Challenge Incorporating my Fitness Programs WITH the herbalife nutrition products

We are mid way through week 2 of 4, of my Gallon Challenge with my herbalife ladies and I am reminded daily about why these challenges benefit me more than everyone else.  I mean yes, I coach everyone personally and my accountability chat is a challenge favorite, but the one who truly sees motivation and gets inspired daily is me.

  • Seeing how everyone motivates each other is such a beautiful thing.  It really does show how people are inherently genuine and authentic.  Everyone wants everyone to do well and get used to this lifestyle change and establish a healthy balance.
  • I love getting recipe, snack, and meal ideas from all of the ladies
  • I stay in check with my own meal plan and exercise routine.  After all what kind of a coach and leader am I if I don’t get on my own goals.  For example I had been getting comfortable only making it to the gym 3 times, when I know I would personally benefit from 4-5 times per week on the program I’m on.  Seeing how one of my fit moms and a full time student who is also working full time (dejavu) made it to their 5 day goals the first week has pushed me to make sure I get my 5 days in as well!  Whenever I feel like overindulging, I think of all of my challengers learning how to establish their balance and learn to choose healthy 80% of the time, my desire to indulge dwindles.
  • Our weekly check ins add more fuel to my fire seeing how much progress everyone makes in just one week including my self is just a motivational bonus!
  • I am always grateful for those who choose me as their coach and allow me to guide them on their journey, but if only they knew they’re the ones that inspire me to keep going when I lose my own motivation.
