I participated in a conference call with Valerie and want to share some of her fitness tips with you:
Make a goal and start immediately. Develop a strategy - start immediately folks, if you miss a day just pick up where you left off and keep it going!
Get a consistent plan, get the exercise in. “You’re one workout away from a good mood!”
You aren’t going to love every workout. Personally, I don't love every workout. Some workouts I am more enthusiastic about than others but inevitably when I complete a workout I feel better!
Have breakfast within hour of getting up:
She suggests- Veggie egg white omelet spinach. Pack the vegetables in it will help you to stay full without extra carbs.
Oatmeal - add protein powder and top with raisins/banana
Workout first thing in the morning. The Psychological effect of working out in the morning are carried around with you for the rest of the day. You will feel virtuous.
Stretch before and after exercising. Stretch with movement. This warms up muscles more dynamically.
40 or older? Be sure to Strength Train! Once you hit 40 your muscles start to atrophy so it is important to keep them healthy but utilizing strength training (from personal experience I can tell you this is true. I stopped strength training and my muscle tone has decreases significantly! I’m taking this tip to heart!)
Valerie believes we can all be “Red Carpet Ready” and she has partnered with California Raisins to encourage us all to have our own “Red Carpet Moment” by sharing a time when we felt our best! Share that moment on facebook and you can win a trip to Hollywood the contest is open until March 15th, check out their Facebook Page.
I also look forward to meeting Valerie in person this Thursday at Blissdom where I am a Fitness Tribe leader! Are you going? Be sure to find me!
Disclosure: I recieved a California Raisins giftbag for participating in the webinar but as usual all opinions are my own.
