1. Fake it until you Make it - Act like the person you want to be: If you want to be a fit individual who has a healthy routine of meal prepping and working out hard 3-5/week, then start doing it. Start small, with the time you have. Slowly incorporate the new you with the old you. No one can change overnight, but if you take a step by step approach you will succeed. Why? Because you deserve to be the person you want to be.
Example: When I was almost 200lbs I always envied my 'skinny' friends and thought they were just naturally skinny. Then I started to look at how and what they ate. They ate way slower and therefore less than me. I started to 'act' like my skinny friends and mimicked the way they ate. It was definitely an adjustment at first, and to be honest I couldn't do it all the time. Sometimes I just wanted to scarf down the plate of food in front of me and get my usual post eating tummy ache. But never the less, I continued to eat like my skinny friends, and guess what I started to loose weight.
2. Be Visual with your goals: These are prompts that encourage you to envision yourself achieving goals. A trick all athletes use. A great example is placing a picture of your 'healthiest' self in your closet or bathroom, somewhere where you will see it everyday. People like Oprah Winfrey, Katy Parry, and many others have used visions boards in the past. Vision boards are essentially boards where you share what you want in life. It can have anything from travel experience, to completing a triathlon, a new kitchen Reno, a baby or a new car. Whatever you WANT in life, tangible or experiential. Take a variety of magazines and let your creative juices FLOW! Make a night out of it with your friends.

3. Take Risks: We tend to view risk-taking negatively, often regarding it as dangerous and even stupid. But while some risks certainly don't pay off, it's important to remember that some do. We learn from risks -- and those lessons may lead us on an important, new path. Success won't fall in your lap -- you have to pursue it. I'm sure you can understand how important this is both in the gym and outside the gym.

4. Don't be lazy: This is a hashtag I LOVE to follow as it consistently has life encouraging posts. Life will only give back what you put in to it. So if you work SMART and hard, you're life will benefit. The key word there is SMART. Be selective where you put your energy and don't try and do it all, because you and I both know that's just not humanly possible. So choose a few eggs to put in your basket and kick butt with those goals.
5. Be Kind: This is another example of Power of Attraction. I saved this one for last because it's something that truly hits home with me. I have had my stages of anger and bitchiness in my life and it never worked out for me. Once I changed my mindset to be naturally happy and kind, life got a whole lot easier and I exhausted way less energy on things that didn't matter. Kindness will get you further in life. It will attract kindness to you. Who doesn't need a little kindness sent their way? Am I right or am I right? So as Ellen always says "Be Kind to one another".

Cheers to 2019 and creating the life that YOU want and DESERVE.
Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. That was 13 years ago. Since then I have devoted my career life to helping other humans, like yourself, kick butt in their health and fitness goals. If you're looking for a helping hand or not even knowing where you should start... I would be more than honoured to help!
