Stupid Goals! What’s the Point?

Why bother setting a goal? It is one more thing I can add to my failure list!

Sound familiar?

Goal setting seems to be something the “successful” people in life do. And if you do not think your worthy of experiencing joy for yourself, then what is the point?

Let’s start with asking yourself a question: Are you worthy of a little extra time to discover what you are capable of? Or is your time allotted to making everyone else happy and leaving yourself at the bottom of the pile?

People don’t one day wake up and say “I am not worthy”; it’s something that happens over time when life gets busy “adulting.” Continue reading →

You Could Be Sabotaging Your Goals and Not Even Know It

Our feelings serve a purpose for many areas of our life, however fitness is not one of them.

When it comes to getting in workouts each week, so many people “see how they are feeling” when making their decision to workout or not.

When we give our feelings that kind of power it’s like giving a two year old a bowl of ice cream and saying “don’t eat it.” Of course the two year old is going to want to eat the ice cream, same goes for you when you don’t “feel” like working out. We know who wins – the feelings. Continue reading →

Today I Cheated on my Juicer – Juicing Made Easy

We all know juicing is good for us. It’s a power pack punch full of high density green nutrients but let’s face it – juicing is a pain in the ass, and that’s why I cheated on my juicer.

I love my Breville juicer (when I make the time to juice). She is smooth, she makes delicious juice and she fills my body with the good stuff, however, cleaning her seems to be what stops me from juicing more frequently.

So while I was making my coffee, I looked over at my nutri bullet and thought “hmmmm how you doing?”

I know this isn’t rocket science and I know the whole point of a nutribullet is to juice with the extra fibre, but I had never thought to cheat on my juicer until today. Continue reading →

Creating a Body You Love

“Exercise, through strength training and conditioning, will help you create a body you love. Nutrition, through clean eating, will help you burn off the fat to show off the body you love, created through exercise.” Coach Seay

It seems like we always have half of the equation figured out. Some of us have mastered exercising but still don’t feel happy with our weight, while some of us have mastered nutrition, yet feel frustrated by their body. Continue reading →

I Got This!

“YOU GOT THIS” is probably our most common catch phrase at Inner Fit and the reason why is simple – we believe you do “got this.”

Humans are capable of incredible feats and your coaches know that while the workout may be challenging, you are more than capable of rocking it (regardless of your fitness level).

Next time you doubt yourself, simple remember these three words, “I Got This” and watch your world change.

 

Finding Motivation

What is it with motivation?

We read self help books, watch youtube videos, read success stories in magazines all to feel inspired and motivated at the gym, but have you ever notice that motivation fades quickly?

The mistake people make is they think motivation comes first. Do you want in on a little secret? Motivation comes second to what successful people know all too well – taking action.

Weird huh? How does motivation come second to action? Here is what happens when our brains and bodies take action. First, you get to the gym (often kicking your heels) and you begin your workout. Within about 20 minutes your brain starts to activate more. All of a sudden you start to feel a little better. This is because the blood is rushing to your muscles to provide energy. As you continue your workout, your brain seems to be on fire. Have you ever noticed how problems seem solvable after a workout or you are less mad at something after you worked out? Imagine, 40 more minutes of your brain being activated. Continue reading →

How to Achieve Your Goal When You Don’t Feel Motivated?

They key to your success is the celebration of mini goals. Little goals along the way keep you proud of your self and help you feel like they are achievable.

Start with setting one small goal this week such as lose 3 lbs, attend 3 classes, weigh in each day for 7 days, or meal prep for 7 days. Continue reading →
