Maybe it’s just me, but I can really see the fitness industry booming in the last two years. More people want to be fit, healthy, and happy. More people join gyms, and sadly, more people buy into the whole Fit Tea Detoxes or Detox Wraps *shameless eye roll*. Being a personal trainer, many people come to me for advice on so and so diet or training regimen. Very often, their misconceptions on training or diet aren’t based off of something they read, but sadly, by something a previous (or current) personal trainer advised them to do. Now, I’ll be very polite throughout this entire post, but I might shake some feathers with some people. Oh, well.
Binge eating is the cause of many athletes’ weight gain after competing or after being in a calorie deficit. Normal individuals can also be victims to binge eating, restricting their calorie intake during the week to finally cave and binge on the weekend. This cycle can mess with one’s metabolism and hormones, turning one’s body into a fat gaining machine. This article will discuss how I overcame my binge eating and what recovery entails.
With the holidays right around the corner, I want to remind you of how important you are. Too many family members getting together over food and alcohol can sometimes turn ugly. Opinions are vocalized, comments are thrown, and people’s worth questioned. This blog post is to remind you that you are worthy. You are worthy of love. You are worthy of health. You are worthy of everything you wish you accomplish.
If you ask anyone about fat, they’ll tell you what it means to be fat right away. They’ll tell you all about how they’re feeling lethargic and heavy, how they have to watch their calorie intake for fear of having health problems. Some may even talk about their difficulty to perform at the gym or find clothing that fits well. Ask someone about inflammation though, and watch them slowly quiet down in confusion.
Do you ever look at Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, Taylor Swift (yes, yes), or Bill Gates, amongst many other successful people, in awe at how quickly things seem to fall into place for them? It’s as if everything they touch turns to gold. People around the world want to know their secret: why does everything look so effortless for them? Why am I not successful yet?
We’ve all met at least once the Mr. or Mrs. of the world who just can’t let someone take care of something in their life. They like micromanaging everything in their lives, even when they’re better off giving the task to someone else. Fix the drain? That’s Okay, I’ll do it myself. Problem with wires in the house? No problem, let me just Google it. Too many projects due? I’ll just stay more hours at the office. Not seeing results at the gym? I’ll just take a fitness class. They’re the people who want to do everything themselves and refuse to admit that they might actually not be able to handle it all.
Over the past 10-15 years, the popularity and aura around becoming an entrepreneurhas sky rocketed. We’ve seen more innovation, creation, and growth than ever before. The technology at our fingertips today allows not only me, but thousands of other entrepreneur as well to run/grow a business 100% remotely. I hopped on the entrepreneur wagon with Prolific Fitness LLC while simultaneously following my passion of playing pro hockey overseas (Europe in my case).
We’ve all been there. As winter is coming, the motivation start lacking and the urge to just give up on everything we’ve worked so hard for the past months is strong. I get it, it’s not like the weather is motivating; we wake up before the sun and want to fall asleep as the sun goes down, at five in the afternoon. For some of us, we don’t even get to see the wonderful sunlight, as we leave early in the morning to go to work, and clock out after the sun goes down. It’s like running in a dark circle.
Welcome, November! Aslo known as Thanksgiving Month or Pre-Christmas. Starting this month, people will start looking at their finances for gifts, food, and party rather than investing or marketing. For those of us who specialize in building other people’s businesses online (see: Writing Leo), it can be a tough period.
I’d love to say that I can be productive on two or three hours of sleep, but it would be a major lie. I nee 7-8 hours of consecutive sleep in order to function properly without my eyes twitching or my brain switching off.
