Does this Sound like You?

Are you stuck in a workout rut? Having a hard time breaking free to hit the gym? I am ready to help change your life!
I will come to your home when it works for you! I will teach you WORKOUTS THAT WORK so you can meet achievable, life changing goals we establish together. My goal isn't to make you reliant on a personal trainer for the rest of your life. My goal is to show you how to make several small changes in how you move, eat and think which will make huge changes in how you live for the rest of your life!

Exercise...It's So Mental!

Eat Better:
I'm always on the lookout for breakfast recipes as eggs can get rather boring day in and day out. Here's one from I just might be brave enough to try...sounds good! What do you think?
Move Better:
As the weather gets nice don't  underestimate the exercise you get just by playing outdoors! Mowing, gardening, playing sports with the kids, swimming, walking, biking, washing the all adds up! The sun and the sidewalk are the only reasons you need to get outdoors and burn some calories!

Amy's Corner:
My kids love to say things like, "Raise your hand if you like the color pink!" Even if it's just us 3 in the room, it's a game that goes on and on and on....
So, here's one for you! Raise your hand if you play games in your head to get through tough workouts. I would wager to bet most hands are in the air. Exercise is so mental, isn't it??? So, let's look at some of my quirky ways of getting through intense workouts and see if you can relate or even find one you want to try!
  • Count reps backwards so I end at 1
  • Divide large rep counts into feasible numbers, 21 = 11, take a rest, then 10
  • Repeat a positive saying over and over and over in my head
  • Turn on a favorite song that gets me going
  • Envision how it'll feel to be done
  • Remember the things I've accomplished that were much harder
  • Set goals, whether it be reps or running to a certain building, before resting
  • Pretend my kids are watching and cheering me on
What could YOU add to this list??
