Did you know that the average person gains 7-10 lbs over the holiday season!?
That is 7-10 lbs maybe on top of what you already wanted to lose or its going to force you to feel sluggish and less energetic for the things you need to get done this season. Its insane to think about all that right ? If you’re someone on your health and fitness journey, the holidays are also about survival mode when it comes to reaching your goals. This is the time of year when most people make excuses as to why don’t have the time to workout or why they don’t have the money to eat healthy.
I know for a fact that if you have a strong desire and motivation to do anything then you will find a way. If you are not highly motivation then you will find excuses instead! I hear it a lot. For the last 2 years of coaching people to reach their health and fitness goals, I see excuses, I see people lose motivation and give up , but I also do see people that succeed. You can stay on track during the holidays! Here are 4 characteristics you need to have to stay on track this season and always.
Whypower. A strong driving force or ” WHY” to change their nutrition and fitness. You can’t “sorta” kind of want to change. You have to really want to change! If your why isn;t big enough, it will be that much harder for you to stay consistent. The work you put it now will be a reflection of your results next month and the month after . The work you put in NOW does not need to be perfect. You just need to have a good balance to get through this tough season. Its possible!
Commitment. Commitment means staying loyal to the things you said you were going to do; long after the feeling of wanting to do it goes away. People that succeed are committed. They are willing to do whatever it takes to be successful and they are not quitters. They may feel like they failed from time to time but they are all in !
Faith. People who succeed have faith! They believe that without a shadow of a doubt that somehow , some way , they will be successful at this . Its just that, it’s a series of trials, errors and triumphs before you find what works best for you . Everyone is different.
Stick To Planning. Preparation and planning is key. Successful people follow the nutrition plan. Yes , I know most people don’t want to hear this but it’s the truth! The people who have the MOST success are those that really do truly follow the nutrition plan laid out in the program.
I am on a mission this holiday season to keep people including myself ACCOUNTABLE and MOTIVATED to continue their health and fitness journey. Have you applied yet?

What is Gut Health?
I’m sure you’ve seen, heard , or yove u’d a conversation about gut health . Have you heard the term “leaky gut“?
Everything starts in your gut . It’s the “Home” station in your body and basically means it’s the starting point to our health. So why wouldn’t we want to take care of our bodies right ?
Did you know that problems with your immune system, skin, inflammation, digestion issues, emotional health , can all mean there’s a problem with your gut?
It all boils down to what we put in our gut . The majority of people are putting bad bacteria in their bodies and it’s the GOOD bacteria that we need more of !
Here’s the deal … it’s connected to all of our issues. What we feed our bodies causes inflammation. … Sugar , processed foods , and gluten. It all breaks the lining down in our intestines and allows the bad bacteria and toxins we’re exposed to daily leak into the bloodstream.
Crazy right ?
If toxins are leaking out of your gut and into the bloodstream, it’s no wonder you’re feeling horrible .
It affects us in forms of pain; inflammations, fatigue , and auto immune issues …. Serotonin is even affected! So this is what I’ve learned …
If we feed our bodies things that don’t keep it whole, that’s when we see more things like depression and anxiety go up!
Listen to your body, it’s your vehicle. It wants to run at its best. Fuel it do what it wants to do .
Biotic means life and antibiotic means death: probiotic gives our gut the good kind of bacteria . Aka Flora! This helps your digestion, boosts the immune stem , and helps your body see and feel good things that are happening to it . The prebiotic in my shake is one of the BEST probiotics that can actually break down the acid in your gut ! Most don’t even get that far .
It’s made out of Whole Foods with no chemical or artificial sweeteners! Whole Foods help heal your body naturally! Don’t rely on meds or do do the job. Medication is not natural and your body doesn’t know how to deal. In return, it will just be a temporary bandaid for what’s really going on.
