Comments Off on Yikes! I am a Personal Trainer So How Did I Get This Fat?


There are times when I feel like this.

Let me just clear the air a bit by saying this article is not meant as a judgement against anyone

particularly if his or her measurements are larger than mine. This is, however, a judgement on

myself and my sobering realization that I really need to get back in line!

Just a week ago, I declared to the world that I was going to initiate a transformation for myself

This one thing will eliminate excuses

June 16, 2011 by  
Filed under TxL News

So many times, I hear excuses about “time” being a problem.

Or, in the case of many moms, that they are last on the list after a busy day.

What I don’t see in those statements or after a little digging around for the thoughts behind those excuses, is a real lack of intention when it comes to being fit.

We definitely intend to take our kids to their baseball practice and games because we want them to experience the fun of the game and perhaps we can also chat with friends.

That is good.

We intend to go to work, which requires our setting an alarm, getting dressed and out the door in time.  We see earning money as important, and it is.

We intend to go the grocery store because we have to eat.

et cetera

When it comes to our personal self-care, getting our hair done tops the list, and that is important. Nothing in my book comes
as close as having a new look just moments after entering the salon.

But in many cases disease prevention is last on our list.  We don’t intend to exercise 5-6 times weekly. Why is that?

We don’t look at staying hydrated or eating a minimum of 10 servings of raw, just-ripened fruits and veggies every day. We don’t know about the impact plants alone have on inflammation in the body, which is the precursor to disease, whether or not we exercise regularly.

Do we think our future selves don’t deserve to live a better quality of life?

Intention is what produces activity.

Intentional activity produces results.

Being intentional with exercise and proper eating will take you places you never would have imagined when excuses were easier to make. Having real intention will be the first step to staying accountable. Start with a calendar and defining your borders -what will you have to limit so that you can tend to your self care properly?  Twice a week workouts will not give you results, prevent weight gain or disease.  So, be realistic and honest here: 5-6 workouts per week.


What will you be doing to become or remain faithful to your fitness lifestyle?

Are you ready to mark those 5-6 appointments with yourself on your calendar every week? These are unbreakable commitments
to yourself now and a healthier you in the future.

For the best Cleveland Fitness Bootcamp, be sure to inquire about TxL Fitcamp and how we guarantee results.

AND if you have not yet heard of Juice Plus and how you can easily and economically add up to 26 servings of raw fruits, veggies and berries to your day, then you owe it to your present and future self to check it out. (Click the Juice Plus box on the right.)

She has earned the world's plushiest hand towel.

Congratulations go to Nora Peralta, a not-real-busy mom of six (ha!), Administrator of Padre Pio Academy Catholic Grade School, massotherapist and professional thumb twiddler (when she can fit that in). Nora has made perfect attendance to Fitcamp in February despite the fact that her household was going through chicken pox at various times. Now, that’s DEDICATION!

Nora is already finding her clothes are fitting looser after just four weeks. (Yes, Fitcamp is designed to burn belly fat.)

She will enjoy her very own resort quality TxL hand towel and manicure!!
