Momma Fit Podcast Episode #4: How to FIT Working out Into Your Life
Fitting in fitness, can be a tough job but one of the best ways to start any kind of habit is to create a ritual around the habit you want to create. And working out is no different!
For example, maybe you want to work out first thing in the morning before you go to work every weekday. You might create a ritual where every morning before work, you get up, eat a small breakfast while listening to the morning radio, then do a workout, shower, and drive to work or do your scheduled daily task.
The idea is to get your mind and body so used to including a workout in your morning routine (or whatever time of day you like to work out) so you no longer have to think about it—it just comes naturally to you.
Listen today to get more tips, along on how to get on a schedule even with a busy life!
Momma Fit Podcast Episode #5: New Year Goals
When you talk about New Year’s resolutions, most people chuckle and say they don’t bother with them anymore. Probably because they know in their hearts, there has been too many years where their goals have completely fallen flat. Ring a bell? Or noise maker for that matter?!
Most resolutions are abandoned usually within the 2-3 week mark, and you are left feeling guilty that another year is here and yet again did not follow through on your big plans to better your life.
Dayna is going to go through a step-by-step guide on how to set your goals the right way, so you can be more successful in ALL areas of your life, AND not just working out ones! To be a successful, you need to hit on all areas and not leave them out because those are the steps that get us closer to that BIG New Years Resolution goal! Happy New Year, let’s start your NEW year off right!
Momma Fit Episode #6: The Reason Vision Boards WORK!
I have been creating vision boards for the last 4 years, and I will tell you that they will work. I used them to envision what my goals were with my online personal training business, creating the Determinite Express DVD workout series, writing The Gluten Free Momma Fit Cookbook, getting the programs and jobs I have wanted, and having two healthy pregnancies…and the list goes on. All I had to do is was add my goals to my vision board, create the emotion around it, then creating the steps to get there and knowing that these goals will happen.
Using a vision board will give you a clear picture of what is important to you and, will define for you what your goal actually looks like.
In this podcast I will give you easy tips and tricks to help build your vision board around your goals. If you are still unsure how a vision board can help you accomplish your goals, listen to the reasons why you need to use one for 2017.
Momma Fit Episode #7: The All or Nothing Approach
Some of us lack a couple of gears; it’s either full power ahead or nothing. Do you suffer from that? I used to when it came to my workouts, to my nutrition and just everyday life. My All or Nothing mode was forged a long ago and was basically how I got through my college and my eating disorder years. I felt that if I stopped the momentum that I would have to re-do the whole darn thing. This topic I wanted to share this topic with you because when we start the New Year goals, you started with determination to create your healthy lifestyle and with enthusiasm and hope. You watch your food intake diligently, exercise like it was going out of style, and even avoid the temptations that seems to be lurking around every corner. And you are confident that you were going to reach your goals once and for all!
Then certain tragedy struck. You ate an extra piece of pizza this weekend. Realizing you had “blown” your day of nutrition; so you ate another and another and but then couldn’t get it together the next day either. Even worse, you missed one workout, and that turned into a whole week away from the gym. After that, your momentum to start over again was gone, and your gym bag hasn’t left the closet since.
Every time you misstep on your healthy journey, you have two choices: to keep walking backwards, which will surely take you even further away from your goals; or accept what has happened which is completely is normal and forgivable. If you choose to accept you have taken not one, but two positive steps down the path that brings your closer to the future you want.
If you’re reading this, you might have been walking backwards for a while. But instead of waiting for the next day, week, month or even year to overhaul your habits, start TODAY. And start small. You can’t go from the recliner to running or from burgers to Brussels sprouts in an afternoon. But you can do one thing little steps to get you back on the right track. That will help you regain your momentum for healthy living. It will happen, I promise. I see this day in day out being a trainer and let me tell you, it is more of a mental game than anything else. I get it—if you have read my bio, you know I had and still have the same issue.
Listen today, as Dayna gives you tips and tricks on how to balance out your life and get you started on the right track!
