Personal Training Client Spotlight!!!

I am going to be starting a new monthly segment-Client Spotlights!!

I absolutely love my clients!

They not only are my clients but most have become close, trusted friends!

My clients are as different as night and day and that keeps my work interesting!

What workout one loves, the other hates.

Their goals are varied and different, they each have their own set of emotions and hardships. Sometimes those hardships carry over to their workouts. When they’re struggling emotionally they may need to workout some anger or frustration. I may need to be their cheerleader, drill Sargent or they might just need a hug that day!

This is what makes my job worth it.

The relationships.

The realness.

The Interview-

I asked a variety of questions.

Favorites, least favorites.

Accomplishments.

My favorite saying!

The responses were so funny!

I have enjoyed watching her grow from barely being able to deadlift 50 pounds to deadlifting 200 pounds!! It is so rewarding to see your clients succeed!

We’ve had some physical setbacks but, through it all she keeps working, keeps moving ahead and continues to put in the work!

I am super excited to see what the future has in sore for her!!

Until Next time!!!

Good Changes are Coming!

I recently decided I needed to make some changes in several areas of my life.

I am odd in that I actually do like change.

I find that I get stale and complacent if I don’t change things up!

When I switch things up here and there, I tend to get bored and sloppy!

After some careful consideration, I decided to make changes physically and business wise!


Physical Changes-

Dietwise:

I really do believe that whole, healthy foods and eating from all food groups in your daily diet are really important. I try to not jump on diet bandwagons and try the latest, greatest diet out there.

But-

In the past I tried eating a modified Paleo diet. I had good results.

Though, I eventually went back to counting macros and eating bread and other non-paleo foods!

I struggle with fibromyalgia and it seemed that bread(even my homemade that was glycophosfate free), crackers and snacks were causing it to flare up worse and when I often ate it, I would be stiff and achy.

I also had stomach issues when I would eat breads, crackers and etc.

So here I am doing the Paleo diet again.

I modify it in that I do allow a small bit of cheese and I eat Greek yogurt as well as some quinoa.

I am feeling so much better and my body is less achy and cranky!

A great side effect was losing 5 pounds the first week!

Workoutwise:

I have started to focus more on strength in my weight workouts. I’ve always been pretty strong, but I am focusing on it more!

It is really hard but I am enjoying it tremendously!

It is totally awesome to hit PR’s(personal records)! Seriously(sorry guys), it is awesome to be lifting a weight and look over and see that I am lifting heavier than the guy beside me!!

Who knows where it might lead!

More about that in a future post!!!


Business Changes-

After much consideration, I have decided to make the Personal Training aspect of my business my sole focus.

I tried for quite a while to incorporate my Personal Training business with trying to start a doTERRA business.

Perhaps I am bad at juggling things but I just felt like I couldn’t do justice to them both!

I feel very passionate about my personal training business. I get great satisfaction in helping others achieve their fitness goals and get healthier!

To me, it was a no brainer that I wanted to throw all my energy into the personal training!

I am keeping the name Essential Fitness because I try to focus on, teach and train what I feel are the essentials of fitness- Weights(heavy and light), Cardio and Yoga & stretching

I have put myself in a Sharer position with doTERRA and will continue to support and help my oil clients however I can!

Since deciding to solely focus on the Personal Training aspect of my business, I feel like I need to change up my logo and my website a bit!

So, be on the look out for a New Logo and some changes to my website!

Also-

One other change to keep an eye out for is merchandise!!

I want to offer some fitness t-shirts and tanks, car decals and water bottles!

I love making and designing shirts so I am super excited about that!


Shirts-


Decals-


Water Bottles-


Also, Also-

I want to incorporate some fitness challenges throughout the year!

They will give you a chance to step up your fitness level!

I will be incorporating weekly healthy eating challenges as well as some weekly fitness challenges!

I will be offering a prizes to those who accomplish all their tasks!

More on this later!

Keep an eye open for the first one towards the end of the month!

Also, Also, Also-

I will be closing my Essential Fitness group that I currently have and will be establishing an Essential Fitness Tribe group.

This will be revamped and refocused on all aspects of fitness and healthy eating! I may also incorporate some essential oil things here and there!

If you would like to be a part of this new group message me on FB I will also be putting the link for the new group on the old one for a week or so where you can join that way!


Whew!!!

I think that’s it as far as changes for now!!!

Thank you for joining me for this wild ride!

I look so forward to more fun adventures with all of you!

XOXO-Amy

How to Stay Committed to Your New Years Goals!

How so we stay committed to our New Years Goals?

This is probably harder than actually making New Year Goals!

We all have good intentions and often want to achieve things but well….

Life happens.

We then get side tracked and discouraged. We then end up saying, I’ll do it next week, I’ll do it next month and then that becomes I’ll do it next year.

It’s easy to become disappointed with ourselves and just get in this ugly cycle of putting off our dreams, hopes and even our health.

Every time we place these resolutions or goals on the back burner it gets easier to stop moving forward. It gets easier to get complacent. It gets easier to accept failure. We then start to give up on ourselves.

How do we stop this ugly cycle? How do we set goals and then work to achieve them and not get side tracked?

I am going to give you 10 steps to help you be successful this year at achieving your New Years Goals!

10 Steps to Help You Achieve Your New Years Goals-

!. Be Realistic-

Make sure the goals you set are realistic! When you set goals that are too big, the likelihood that you will achieve them is slim. If you say you will go to the gym an hour every day and you work a 10 hour workday, have a family and home responsibilities, church and outside interests an hour everyday is going to be hard. Saying I want to workout 2-3 times a week with that schedule or adding in a walk several days during your lunch time is also more achievable. If your goal is not fitness related-say saving money every month, saving half your paycheck is usually not doable either, but saving 5% of it might. Make sure the goals you set are doable with your lifestyle!

2. Make an Outline of Your Plan-

Decide some definite deadlines and dates you want to achieve your goals. This is sort of like making an outline. Be very specific. Definite plans and deadlines can keep you on track. You should also have some rewards listed in this plan as well. Some ideas would be, “if I lose 15 lbs I will go buy a new workout outfit or new shoes”, “if I save $100 the next 3 months I can go out to a movie and meal”. Rewards are very important and really make your plan worth while.

3. Plan Ahead-

Plan for pitfalls, plan for mistakes and plan for bad attitudes. Believe me,eating another salad can sometimes seem like an impossible task! Have a back up plan. Have people in place to help encourage you when you don’t want to keep working towards your goal. Have friends or family that will not only hold you accountable but will come alongside you and work on your goal with you. Being a Personal Trainer I do this a lot. Sometimes I have to encourage and sometimes I have to tell the person to get out of their own way. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Period!

4.Don’t Keep It a Secret-

Tell your significant other about your goal plans, tell your mom, your best friend, your co-workers and maybe even your kids! Kids tend to be some of the best accountability partners. They tell it like it is! If you say, “Mommy isn’t going to eat candy for a month”, and they catch you unwrapping a Hershey Kiss, don’t think they wont remind you! By telling someone it makes it “real”. Who knows perhaps they will want to join you!

5. Put Your Goals in a Prominent Place-

Have your list of goals, your goal plans or even a vision board in a place you will see it every day. This is not about it matching your decor. Seeing it every day will remind you of what you planned out! You cant escape it! I have had mine on the wall beside my bed where I see when I get up and this year I put it right on the wall in front of my desk. I can’t miss it. Also making it colorful and eye catching helps as well!

6. Make an If, Then Chart-

A pro/Con list will work as well. You might stay if I walk every day at lunch then I will feel more relaxed or if I eat 5 servings of vegetables every day I will keep my calories in check. It might also be good to do some negative ones as well. If I miss my workouts then I will be behind in my progress. You get the idea. Put value on the goals you set!

7. Track Your Progress-

That might be you buy stickers to put beside an accomplished goal, marking it out when you finish a goal. Setting short term goals are not as overwhelming. Think of each small short term goal accomplished as a step towards the top of a Lighthouse. You can’t jump to the top of one, you have to do it step by step!

8. Realize You are Going to Make Mistakes-

Don’t beat yourself up. Do the best you can. There is a reason we get a new start every day. Mistakes are also why Whiteout was invented! Take it one day at a time and keep pushing ahead!

9. Stick to It-

If you are trying to lose 30 pounds well guess what? You didn’t gain that over night and you’re not going to lose it overnight. Experts say it will take about 21 days(-although I kind of disagree, I think it takes about 2-3 months) for new activities to become a habit and about 6 months for it to become a lifestyle. The main thing is to keep moving forward and to never give up!

10. Keep Trying-

You may just have to start over again. Tell yourself you will do XYZ for the next day. You can do anything for a day. Then tell yourself you’ll do it again the next day when you get up! Each day builds on the other and suddenly you have a good habit formed! I am always telling my boys you can’t eat the whole elephant but you can bite by bite. There is a story about

It’s Not Going to be Easy……

But it will be worth it!!

Imagine 3 months form now when you have formed some new healthy habits or accomplished a goal you set for yourself!

Every goal achieved is worth the work and the hardships!

What are some of your New Years Goals?

What do you hope to achieve?

What do you think will be the hardest part?

Who can you ask to help you stay accountable?

I look forward to hearing for you all!

XOXO-

Amy

The Story of the Next 365 Days

Tonight we flip over to a new decade, a new year and a new month!

I recently saw a quote by Brad Paisley that said, “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”

What do you have planned as an outline for your story for the next year? Do you have any exciting chapters? Do you have some chapters that are going to be tedious to not only write,but to read? Is your book going to be full of suspense or do you have it well defined?

We know that God ultimately determines our steps but we should make plans and not fly by the seat of our pants!(Proverbs 16:9). The Bible also says, “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” (Proverbs 16:3)

What Do You Want to Achieve this Year?

Do you want to make physical changes? Per haps you’d like to lose some weight or get stronger. Or maybe you’d like to just be healthier this year!

Do you need to make career changes? Is your current job slowly killing you? Or would you like to move up the ladder? Maybe you’d just like to continue on as you are!

Perhaps you’d like to get out of debt or grow your 401k! Maybe you’re making plans on how to cut back on your expenses.

Have you felt far away from God? Maybe your plans include growing closer to Him or you want to return to church!

But the First Step is to Make a Plan

Write your goals down.

Make a vision board.

Put them in a prominent place where you’ll see them every day.

Pray over your goals and plans.

Then Place Them in God’s Hands-

Like Proverbs 16:9, we can make all the plans we want but ultimately God directs our steps.

So why not invite Him in and give Him the authority over your life.

He will bless your plans even more when you give them over to Him!

What is the title of your book for the year?

I would love to know!

Feel free to leave me a comment!

Until next year!!!

Miraculous Mug Muffins and Treats!!!

In the past few months, I have been toying with idea of trying the Paleo diet again.

I know, I know eating overall healthy is best and not omitting any food groups is truly my belief, but I am finding I have some issues with wheat! My joints are not happy when I eat too much of it!

I also find that I do eat more veggies and fruit when I follow the Paleo diet since I am not eating crackers and such!(I followed it a couple years ago).

Now, I make my own bread with Non-gmo, organic and no glycophosphate (Round Up) sprayed wheat(yes your organic, heathy wheat bread is sprayed with Round Up unless you buy it from a grower who states that they do not! Mine is Montana Wheat Company). It doesn’t seem to bother me as much, but I find its really hard to keep up with the bread making and I don’t make wraps or crackers-I could, I just struggle with time to do so!

Okay, so now that I have told you this, let me explain my title of this blog post-

Miraculous Mug Muffins and Treats-

I have found countless recipes for mug muffins, breads, cookies, cakes and brownies!

Most are very Paleo friendly, meaning they use Paleo “flours- Almond, Cashew, Coconut and Cassava flours. They also use Stevia or erythritol sweeteners in place of sugar!

The awesome thing about these recipes is you feel like you are eating something bad, but it is really quite healthy! Most are higher in protein or its easy to convert into a protein muffin, bread, cake or brownie by adding protein powder!

They also use less of the “flours” so you actually get more servings out of a bag of what ever you are using!

Mug recipes are typically one to two servings and that also helps cut down on the temptation to over eat treats!

I have also found a neat way to partially make up the mix so you can throw it in to a mug (or large glass mixing cup like I do!) and add the wet ingredients in the morning for a quick, healthy and filling breakfast!

I take all the dry ingredients and put into a small baggie and I either write the wet ingredients and amounts on the bag or I make sure I save the recipe on my phone.

Then the next morning I either mix the wet ingredients up in the baggie or I dump everything in a Pam sprayed large mug and combine!

Most of the recipes only take 1-2 minutes to make and then you have your breakfast!

Of course, you can also make a quick treat after dinner as well!

I have found these to be time saving, healthier choices and quite filling for breakfast in the mornings! I am often flying by the seat of pants out the door in the morning, so these are a lifesaver!

My Favorite Mug Recipes-

Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake

Ingredients:

1 scoop vanilla protein powder 32-34 grams

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 T coconut flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 T granulated sweetener of choice(I use Pyure)

1 large egg

1/4 cup milk of choice

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the glaze:

1 T coconut butter(or any butter) melted

1/2 tsp milk of choice

pinch cinnamon

(I also a just a pinch of Pyure)

Mix the “butter”, milk and cinnamon(and Pyure if you want) set aside and spread on top when mug cake is done!

To Make Cake:

Mix all ingredients together in a Pam sprayed mug or glass measuring cup. Microwave for 60 seconds or until done!


Lemon Mug Cake:

Ingredients

1 tbsp almond flour

1 1/2 tbsp coconut flour

1/2-1 tsp lemon extract(or one to two drops of lemon oil!)

1 tbsp granulated sweetener of choice(Stevia or Pyure)

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 large large egg

3 tbsp milk of choice

Sugar Free Vanilla Glaze

2 tbsp sugar free powdered sugar

1/16 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp milk of choice

Instructions

In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.

In a separate small bowl, combine the milk with the egg and whisk with the lemon extract. Add the mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined.

Grease a large mug or a glass measuring cup generously and pour the batter in it and microwave for at least 50 seconds, depending on the microwave.

(You can turn this into a protein Lemon Mug Cake by adding 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder and add a little more lemon and milk-just add by the tablespoon until like cake batter)


Ultimate Mug Brownie-

Ingredients

Instructions

Microwave version

  • Grease a small cereal bowl or deep mug and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, granulated sweetener and cocoa powder and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg with the milk and pour into the dry mixture and mix until fully incorporated. Top with chocolate chips if desired.
  • Microwave for 60 seconds and remove from microwave and enjoy immediately.
  • This is one brownie you can eat for breakfast!!!


These are just a drop in the hat of recipes that you can make in a mug!

I am sharing my Pinterest Paleo board, take a look around and check out all the recipes! If you make some let me know what you think!

https://pin.it/apjkusdkgm7ke (-you may have to copy & paste)

Also, I’d be interested in hearing if you have ever tried the Pa;EO diet and what successes you have had!

Until next time-

A New Year, Some New Fitness Options

I am gearing up for a new year for my personal training business!

I have some new training plans coming out and can’t wait to roll them out!

First Some Observations

After training for about 2 years one thing I have started to see that sometimes you need a set period of time to try personal training to see if it is for you! This is why I like month to month, but I am seeing where it might be a good idea to actually purchase a set number of sessions or months!

The other big thing I see is that people need to make a commitment to themselves and not just be paying for sessions!

This is an investment you are making! An investment of lifelong health and vitality-not just losing weight or toning up!

The last thing I see is my clients that have a specific goal in mind seem to be more successful! And they are usually not weight related! They seem to be the ones with fire in their bellies and they want to achieve those goals!

Some New Offerings-

I have decided to offer for new clients a couple of options-

6 Week Strength Training Special-

1 session a week( 6 total sessions plus 1 introductory/planning session)-$150

Your training is yours to keep.

I can supply a nutrition plan if you want, as well as, holding you accountable!

A free T-shirt!

2 sessions a week ( 12 total sessions plus 1 introductory/planning session)-$300

Your training is yours to keep.

I can supply a nutrition plan if you want, as well as, holding you accountable!

A free T-shirt!

Bigger Packages-

Buy 15 Personal Training Sessions (at 2 a week) and Get 2 Free-$375

Your training is yours to keep.

I can supply a nutrition plan if you want, as well as, holding you accountable!

A free T-shirt!

Buy 30 Personal Training Sessions (at 2 a week) and Get 5 Free-$750

Your training is yours to keep.

I can supply a nutrition plan if you want, as well as, holding you accountable!

A free T-shirt!

By the Month Purchases-

Still the same as usual. $25/session 1, 2 and 3 times a week available!

I Need Some Input-

I am wanting to gauge my reader interest in something new!

I am thinking of purchasing a building to start training out of. It would be located on our property.

There would not be a membership fee, just paying for your personal training sessions.

I would also be looking to possibly offer some small group circuit training eventually.

What I am looking for from you all is,

-“yes” I would be interested in training in my own private studio or

-“no”, I’d prefer to train elsewhere.

I am so excited for this New Year to begin!

The next 365 days are yours to shape and change as you want!!

I look forward to hearing from you all!

XOXO-

Christian Meditation-Is There Such a Thing?

Several years ago I saw a counselor for some issues I was dealing with.

I walked in her office somewhat guarded because I feel very strongly about my Christian beliefs and often many counselors are more secular in practice.

Finding a Christian counselor is hard and having your insurance pay for one is even harder!

But much to my surprise this particular one I went to had been formally trained at a Christian college but explained she didn’t advertise herself as one simply because there wasn’t a market for it and insurance issues.

I explained to her some of my concerns and she was very considerate of my beliefs!

So as our time went on my counselor introduced me to Centering Prayer.

According to Wikipedia- “Advocates of Centering Prayer say it does not replace other prayer but encourages silence and deeper connection to God.  Also advocates of Centering Prayer say it helps people be more present and open to God.

What is Centering Prayer-

I can’t speak as to what people outside of what I was taught practice but I can share what my counselor taught me!

To me Centering Prayer is sitting quiet, in a comfortable place(I often sat in my closet because it was quiet and some what sound proof!), taking the time to close your eyes, control your breathing and focusing (and saying in your mind) on a name for Christ or a short Bible verse.

She suggested doing it for 20-40 minutes a day. Twenty was about my max. I just can’t sit still much longer!

I still practice it about 1-3 times a week.

Again, there are probably different practices but this is what works for me!

This to me, fits into what my beliefs are and I feel they help me to relax and focus better on Christ!

Why practice Centering Prayer-

There are many benefits of meditation.

-Reducing Stress

-Helps Anxiety

-Can help with memory

-Lengthens attention span

-Helps with emotional health

-Improves sleep

-Can help control pain

-Can help reduce blood pressure

And since Centering Prayer is a form of meditation, you will reap the same benefits as regular meditation plus growing closer to Christ!!!

Which in turn gives you a greater sense of peace and rest!

What can you do besides Centering Prayer-

One other practice I have is “Grounding”.

What is grounding?

Some people call it earthing.

The thought is it connects you to the electrical charges in the earth and it promotes healing in the body, muscle and body pain.

I don’t know about all that!!

But, being a West Virginia girl, I LOVE being outside and I do fall under the stereotypical “barefoot”(but NOT pregnant!!). I try to go outside barefoot and stand in the grass or walk up to get the mail barefoot! And Yes-even on cold days!

It totally makes me happy to feel the grass and ground under my feet!

So that is enough for me!

What about you?

Do you practice meditation, centering prayer or grounding?

Do you have any other stress control practices-like breathing, massage, yoga or tai chi?

What do you do to help with stress and anxiety?

Do you use essential oils to help with stress, anxiety and depression?

I would love to hear what practices you have found helpful as well!!

The Last 30 Days of the Year!

There are only a little over 30 days until the end of the year and end of a decade! Now is the time to make the best of it! It’s also time to make some solid plans and changes for the coming year!

Every year I try to start new goals or plans before the beginning of The New Year! I think you’re more likely to stick with it if you go through the hardest part of the year! Especially if it’s diet and exercise!

Next 30 Days-

But let’s talk specifically about the next 30 days!

What do you need to let go of to make solid healthy changes in your life?

What mindset changes do you need to make?

What goals did you set at the beginning of the year and have not achieved yet? If you can’t achieve it you can at least start working on it!

What is one change you could make in the last 30 days- mentally, physically, spiritually or even career wise?

Prepare for Next Year-

Now is the time to set some solid goals and plans for this coming year!

2020!!!

This is the time to start planning your vision board and list of goals as well as the steps you need to take to get there(short term goals).

Uncategorized

I’m Setting my 2020 Goals!(and Challenge!)

Every year about this time I turn my thoughts to the coming year!

If you haven’t caught on yet I love to set goals and think about the future!!

This year I have actually been a little behind in setting my plan up and working on my vision board! It seems like everyday I have too many things on my list to get done! Oh well, there is still time to make plans!

It’s funny because as much as I like to plan there definite things I procrastinate at! Christmas shopping is one I put off and put off! All I can say is thank goodness for Amazon Prime!!! Now I do have a written list and mental list but just haven’t put them into action yet!

Deciding Your Goals-

I divide up my goals in to Personal, Physical and Business goals.

Personal entails Spiritual goals(like reading my Bible everyday, praying etc), relationships(family, friends etc), emotional(healing, dealing with stress, controlling better), and anything that I feel I’d like to accomplish personally.

Physical entails workouts, do I want to gain muscle, lose weight, participate in a competition of some type, do yoga more, eat better, write down any specific diet goals(eating 5-8 veggies a day, eat paleo, eat less wheat etc), it could even be get 7 hours of sleep a night! There is always something to accomplish physically!

Business(Work) goals entail anything relating to your work or business! It could be you’d like to get a raise, gain so many number customers/clients, make so much a week/month, grow a business, start a business and a 100 other things!

When thinking about your goals you may only have personal goals. There really is no wrong or right!Goals are very personal and I doubt any 2 people ever have the same goals!

Write them Down-

So there are several ways to write these goals down!

You can do daily and weekly goals, monthly, 3 and 6 month goals as well as one year!

I start with some yearly goals, then break them down into 6 month goals, then 3 month and then 1 month goals. The thought is to break them down into achievable goals! You often can not accomplish your biggest goal in one sitting!

I will take a piece of paper and just brain dump everything I’d like to achieve. Then I pick 5-8 things I’d really like to do that will take time-I white those down on another piece of paper. Next I take those and break down each into the steps I need to accomplish. Then if needed I break them down into even smaller steps.

From there I can start to see what is a one month goal, a three month goals and then 6 months and then 1 year.

I make a list and then I place it near my desk where I can see it all the time!

Visualize-

I then take my goals that I have a list of and I translate them visually onto a Vision Board.

I collect pictures, sayings, bible verses and anything else that applies to my goals. I then divide my Vision Board into my 3(or whatever number you had) sections. I like to label them but its totally up to you!

I then glue or tape down my pictures, sayings and etc on a foam board and decorate it however it suits me.

I like to place my board in a place where I see it every day!

Take Action-

It’s all good and well to write down goals and make a vision board but you have to take action for the things you write down.

If needed break those monthly goals down even further into weekly and daily goals.

Small steps are still steps forward!

Take five minutes every morning and look at your vision board, read over your goals and get inspired!

Failing to plan is planning to fail!

Live each day on purpose!!!

A Few of My Goals-

I have a few things that I am working on and I am so excited!!

I am working hard on gaining some strength and want to set some personal records weight lifting-wise.

I want to get some more personal training clients! I LOVE my job and love helping others!

I want to grow my website and my offerings there!

Losing some weight wouldn’t be bad either!

I want to learn to deal with frustrations, worries and things I can’t control!

I do not want to get stuck in a rut like I often do!

I have a ton more that I want to achieve this year!

Get Excited!!

A new year is coming!

New experiences, new opportunities and new achievements!

What are some of your goals?

What do you want to have different this time next year?

What is one thing you can change this year?

A Challenge-

Be brave and leave a comment with three of your goals for this coming year!!!

XOXO-

Amy
