My Most Inspiring Advice
I talk a lot.
There are many things I say which are probably completely useless. However, I do think every now and then I come up with some helpful nuggets to pass along to clients which offer some value.
I’ve collected 50 of my favorite personal pieces of advice and listed them here in no particular order. I hope you’ll find at least something worth remembering, to help you break a plateau, get started on your journey, feel motivated, whatever it may be.
1. Don’t expect to feel motivated every day. Motivation is fleeting. Instead, focus on developing DICIPLINE. Discipline trumps motivation every day.
2. 10% effort yields 10% results. Give 100% and you are guaranteed success.
3. You will never reach your goal unless your mind truly believes it’s possible.
4. Don’t try, do. Saying “I’ll try” is giving yourself permission not to follow through. Instead, say “I WILL” and work at repeating that to yourself every day.
5. There’s no magic pill. Choose to move, eat for fuel & treat your body & mind well. Weight loss will follow.
6. You CAN control your nutrition choices but you HAVE to be willing. Without willingness to change the way you eat, don’t expect much.
7. The only workouts you regret are those you do not do. Think about how you’ll feel when you’re done. No one ever walks out of the gym in a worse mood.
8. Sleep is more important for weight loss than diet or exercise. Lack of sleep= Lack of motivation + cravings — energy = disaster.
9. Start with getting enough sleep, drinking more water and eating more veggies. Then work to replace one unhealthy habit each day with a healthy one.
10. When it comes to exercise, following an effective training plan is KEY. You will not see continued results by doing random workouts day to day.
11. If you’re lacking knowledge of what to do or where to begin, hire a coach. There’s a reason we have jobs and we are here to help you.
12. Liquid calories pack on pounds and do not provide hardly any nutritional value. WATCH THEM
13. Progress takes patience. If you aren’t willing to wait you aren’t going to get results.
14. Don’t skip the weight room. Strength training builds muscle which helps your body burn more fat in the long run.
15. Hit a plateau? Change up your workout! You can’t get new results with the same old routine.
16. The biggest factor in weight loss isn’t your diet or your exercise program. It’s consistency.
17. You didn’t gain the weight overnight so don’t expect to lose it right away. Rome wasn’t built in a day, it was build consistently, every single day for THOUSANDS OF DAYS.
18. Sometimes you have to stop making excuses and just get tough on yourself. In the end, you’re the only thing standing in your way
19. If food is not the reason you are bored, stressed, tired or unhappy, eating will not fix it.
20. You deserve health. You deserve energy. You deserve confidence.
21. Confused about which fats are good and which are bad? Remember, nature doesn’t make bad fats. Factories do.
22. You get stronger by doing what’s difficult.
23. You can’t out-exercise a bad diet, but exercise can motivate you to eat healthy. The two of them combined are the perfect formula for results.
24. The road less traveled may be bumpy but it’s a lot more interesting.
25. Caring for others starts with caring for yourself. In order to give your best you must be your best. If you want to be the best version of yourself for your kids, it requires taking care of your health.
26. Taking control of your body and health is an investment in yourself that pays off over and over and over again.
27. Never feel guilty for investing time and energy into your own health and fitness. If you don’t take care of yourself, your loved ones end up taking care of you.
28. Sometimes in order to know what we DO want, we have to figure out what we DON’T want.
29. If someone isn’t supportive of positive change in YOUR life, should they BE in your life?
30. Willpower is not an unlimited resource. Prevent decision fatigue by planning ahead.
31. What’s the “secret” to weight loss? Eat whole food, move your body, get enough sleep, and manage stress.
32. You are not a number on a scale and your weight is not your value. There are many other things we use to measure your progress: measurements, photos, energy, mindset, relationship with food
33. Focus on little wins each day. Not only will this create a positive environment for yourself each day but little wins every day lead you toward your big win.
34. The only thing holding you back are the obstacles you create yourself. Get out of your own head.
35. Expect there to be obstacles. Do not expect perfection.
36. Focus on the process rather than the end goal.
37. Life isn’t always fair. Accept it and move on. You have to make the most of the hand you’re dealt.
38. If you do the same thing you’ve always done you’ll get the same results you’ve always gotten.
39. How you spend your time reflects your priorities. You’re not too busy, you choose to spend your time on something else, like TikTok or Instagram.
40. You’re never too old to start focusing on your health.
41. The space just beyond the comfort zone is where the change happens.
42. What works for one person won’t work for someone else. Determine what works best for you and ignore everything else.
43. Change is hard. Don’t waste time waiting for it to be easy.
44. Small steps can seem insignificant at the time but they add up to big changes in the long-term.
45. Focus on habits rather than results.
46. Change is about inertia. The more you do the more you want to do. The more you stay still, the harder it is to get going.
47. What gets measured gets managed. If you want more education about food, start by tracking your food intake. You’ll quickly be educated on portion control, balanced eating, and how certain foods amount in a day.
48. You can’t control what happens to you but you can control how you respond to it.
49. Physical strength leads to mental strength.
50. Fear is the greatest enemy of progress.
