Not getting enough protein? Scary!

Hey Fit & Fabs! Scary is not getting enough protein after your muscle-building weight training. Scary is putting in all that sweat and hard work and not getting muscle popping results. Are you working out and still not seeing the muscle tone you desire?! You could be protein deficient.
Read ON!
 7 Reasons Why You’re Not Seeing Results!
1.) Not getting enough protein. Protein is the building block for muscles; if you’re not getting enough of it, you will not increase muscle mass and you may lose your hair. Scary!
2.) Not sleeping enough. During sleep, deep sleep, the body is able to repair and rebuild the muscle fibers that are broken down during exercise. Sleep is a building block for muscle. 
3.) Consuming too much alcohol.
4.) Not increasing weight and reps, ever.
5.) Skipping workouts and not making them up. 
6.) Lack of muscle confusion (aka doing the same thing over and over).
7.) Lack of a progressive planned periodzation program.
Stop wondering around the gym aimlessly and hire a Fitness Pro to help you achieve the body you dream of and build the muscle you’re lacking.  It’s really not scary. It’s science. You can do it!

My 3 Top Tips To Keep Health
a Top Priority:

1.) Join a Group for accountability and #motivation!

2.) Schedule your workout time like you would a lunch date! Like a boss and don’t skip or cancel!

3.) When you are feeling low on energy, do a 10 minute walk outside and watch your motivation come back! Building your will-power muscle will give you repeated impressions in your brain, that will make you feel better to build-in the ability to resist your resistance to moving. That happens only when you make yourself do it, behave your way out of it!

Tuesday Trainer Tip : Find Your Yoga

The road to yoga is filled with many styles of yoga. It’s important to find a yoga style that fits your comfort zone. The word yoga simply means “union.”
Yin, Vin, Bikram, and even goat yoga!  yoga instructors come in all sizes, ethnics, ages, and political parties. Truth is, you will need to shop around until you find a good fit. Yoga is thought by some to be a stretch session with candles. Do your research or analysis  or you may end up crawling out of class in a sweaty puddle, discouraged.

So excited to add virtual yoga to my teaching schedule.  In offering  several styles and intensities and, after a consultation, I can guide clients in the direction they need to go. Having taught and taken yoga classes in many venues. One thing I have observed during my virtual sessions is the peace of a personal journey by each participant. A journey free of competition and judgement. The yoga classes with an environment of extreme competition, in my opinion, defeats the purpose of yoga. I have also gotten to know the furry family members. It’s  because they all seem gravitate to the peaceful and safe energy flowing into the space. They are naturals at yoga. Down dogs and all. I have a hard time getting the goat yoga thing, but I think what I’m getting from this observation is this. We know we get peace and comfort from our pets and yes, they from us. I hope to see you in Virtual Yoga Soon! Pets welcomed and always optional.
