Good afternoon friends!  And more importantly...Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope you have had a fantastic day so far.  Mine has been absolutely NUTS!  Of course I started the day off with a FAST but KILLER workout, then it was off to volunteer for the entire morning/early afternoon in my son's Kindergarten class.  Let me tell you, it was too cute to see how excited 5 & 6 year olds could be about a day of LOVE.  But I've got much more going on the rest of the day with parent teacher confeence meeting and oh yeah, SOCCER PRACTICE ( case you didn't know, I am a SOCCER MOM).  This is how I've spent my day of "LOVE" and will continue to spend it...romantic isn't it?!

So this blog is going to be SHORT and SWEET!  Here's the deal...most of you will be INDULGING tonight in some serious calories.  Whether it be APPETIZERS, combined with HIGH CALORIE FOOD, ADULT BEVERAGE(s) AND...DESSERT you need to make sure you put yourself at a DEFICIT.  Get up right now and do 50 Jumping Jacks!  Don't want to cause a scene at work with people staring at you...take a quick break and go for a walk 3 TIMES around your office building.  Work from home???  Down the block and back up 2 TIMES...Stay at home Mom/Dad???  Turn on the stereo RIGHT NOW and move...groove to 5 of your FAVORITE songs on your Ipod and DON'T STOP until the last song is finished!

My point is, don't waste all the hard work you put in or have put in this week to get yourself closer to your Fitness GOAL because of ONE day.  And don't say "oh Famisha, it's only ONE day.  I'll get back on it tomorrow!"  You can say that all you want, but if you have been sedentary ALL DAY and consume a bunch of calories have no one to blame for the scale being up tomorrow but YOURSELF.  So MOVE...even if it's only for 10-15-20 minutes...every bit counts!

That's my blog of the day!  Short and SWEET (no pun intended!)  So enjoy ONE piece of chocolate and whatever else you and your Sweetheart decide to have for the evening and make sure you have done something to also promote your health and fitness for the day.

Thanks as always for taking the time to stop by and hear what I had to say.  Now go have yourself a Happy, Healthy LOVE filled day!  And a Fabulously Fitness Filled Week!


As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!

Good afternoon friends!  It's another beautiful day in paradise and I thought I'd blog really quick about FIVE things that you can do to help ASSURE that you DO workout the NEXT day...

Here's the deal, it's now February and I'm sure a lot of people's New Years Resolutions of "Getting back in Shape!" or "Losing those last 10 lbs" are no longer top priority.  Well, that is why I personally feel you should decide to make a LIFESTYLE change BEFORE January 1st because it doesn't happen over night.  As I like to clients get RESULTS because #1 I hold them ACCOUNTABLE, #2 they work HARD and #3 they make it a LIFESTYLE.  I can't stand it when I hear someone say "IT just doesn't work..."  Really?!  MOVEMENT...EATING SMART...LIFESTYLE CHANGE doesn't work????  That would be incorrect!  I make it very clear when a potential new client meets with me and can't wait to work with me that if they think I wave magic wands over my clients to get them the AMAZING results they get, they are sadly mistaken.  It's called hard work and determination...and we have fun too!

So here are 5 things that you can do the night before to HELP YOU make it to the gym or your workout wherever that may be the next day:

#1, SLEEP IN YOUR WORKOUT CLOTHES.  Yep!  This actually works!  If you wake up and you're already dressed to workout then you might as well do it, right?!

#2, PACK YOUR GYM BAG THE NIGHT BEFORE AND PUT IT IN YOUR CAR.  If your gym bag is sitting on the front seat of your car when you get into it to go to work, it basically tells you "YOU BETTER TAKE ME TO THE GYM, YOGA STUDIO, BOOTCAMP TODAY!"

#3, SET AN ALARM ON YOUR PHONE.  If it goes off and states "GO WORKOUT!"  It tells you it's time to now FOCUS on your health and fitness for the day.

#4, PUT A PICTURE OF SOMEONE IN A MAGAZINE WHO'S (BLANK) YOU WANT ON YOUR FRIDGE.  The blank can be legs, abs, arms, butt...doesn't matter.  If it's on the fridge, that's just going to motivate you to make a smarter choice on what you choose to eat and want to work out hard that day on whatever area you want to focus on.  Now CAN'T spot reduce, but you can certainly perform exercises that are going to get you closer to achieving your fitness goal.

And finally...#5, PUT MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES IN PLACES YOU CAN'T AVOID SEEING THEM.  On your mirror, "NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!"  Which is a sign I actually have up in my fitness studio.  "YOU ARE WORTH IT!"  "FITNESS IS FUN!"  "YOU WILL BE THAT DREAM SIZE!" Etc, etc...whatever statement will motivate you to allow yourself the time to work on getting closer to your Fitness Goal.  Post these on your fridge, mirror, closet, rear view mirror in your car, on your computer...just to name a few spots.

So I hope my FIVE ideas help you figure out how to keep moving towards accomplishing your 2013 FITNESS GOAL!  Just know that YOU CAN AND WILL ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOAL!!
