Help I’m about to cheat….ON MY DIET

Girl with Hamburger


By: Stephanie Joanne

This is always a popular topic around the gym! How do you keep yourself on track? Fitness trainers will have lots of tips and tricks that we use to make sure we stick to the plan! Of course it comes down to motivation. Really what fitness program is complete without sounds nutrition? Here are some tricks of the trade to keep you in check as far as your diet is concerned.

1.Schedule- Know exactly what time your meals will be for the day. This way you know that anything other than those set times are off limit and your body doesn’t really need it.

2.Stop emotional eating- Learn to deal with the pains in your life instead of searching for food to comfort. Find something else to do to occupy your mind…exercise!

3.Sauce- Ditch it all together. Get into the habit or ordering and preparing your food without sauce. Believe me you will get used to it and once you do it will actually start to gross you out when you see it again. New best friends…mustard and hot sauce…enjoy!

4.H20- Drink 2 huge glasses of water…often our bodies mistake hunger for thirst. Drink up!

5.Gum- Chew some gym!

6.Thoughts- Consider that you want what you can’t have because you know you “can’t” have it. Don’t let your mind play these games one you!

7.Let it pass- ask yourself “If I resist eating this, later won’t I feel this amazing sense of accomplishment?” Worth it!

Remember…nothing tastes better than fit feels! Stick to the plan and love it!

Ditch the Fragile by Stephanie Joanne

Stephanie Joanne


To define the word fragile would be, easily broken, shattered, or damaged, delicate, brittle or frail. Are these the reasons why most ladies still steer far away from the weight room?

The fear of the weight room is so overwhelming for most of my female clients when they are starting out at the gym.

Fast forward a few months and they can’t get enough of it. I wish it were as simple as telling them to just not care what people think and stop thinking you’re going to embarrass yourself.

I must also address the nonsense idea that you are going to put on muscle. If your goal is to lose weight or tone up, realize that the only way to do this is to put on some good old lean muscle. So put your game face on and hit the weight room full force.

Be the powerful woman you know you are and strive for some strength within you. Once you peel away your shy self, and feel how empowering your body can make you feel, you will forever be addicted to using your muscle!

Here are some ways to “peel away the fragile” of the weight room today:

Step one- Ask for help! Trainers, members, anyone…we love talking fitness. I personally love when someone asks me for help with an exercise they are unsure of on the gym floor. Most trainers come with Egos, feed those slightly and we’re all yours.

Step two- Believe that you will not bulk up. It is actually impossible to do so as our bodies just do not have the genetic makeup. If you want to be lean and toned, you must lift weights and yes heavy weights.

Step three- Educated yourself. take time to learn about your body. There are a ton of resources online to help you. The amounts of time you spend thinking about what you wish you had could be converted into time well spend researching some new moves.

Step four- Just go! Start today..stop thinking about it. The sooner you grab that dumbbell and enter that dreaded weight room zone the sooner you will feel like the Muscle Bombshell that you already are.

 Lose the fragile and I’ll see you in the weight room!
