Your thoughts are EVERYTHING!

Your thoughts are EVERYTHING. Wouldn’t you agree? Some people succeed and some people don’t. The difference? Their thoughts and beliefs about themselves. Success is a mindset. Those that want it bad enough already envision themselves succeeding. Those that don’t, will see the wagon they plan to fall off of before they’ve even fallen. At the end of the day, it all comes down to your thoughts.

Living Healthy

Living healthy and responsibly can be difficult, inconvenient and won’t always make you the most popular person at parties, I know, lol. Ultimately, though, it is those healthy decisions that will prove to be wisest because what you ingest as well as your actions literally alter your body, state of mind, emotions, and consciousness (good and bad).

Have a Plan In Place

It would be great if everything were to go according to plan. Like having healthy meals prepared, not hitting the snooze button when the alarm goes off and getting those workouts in first thing in the morning. But let’s get real, there will be hiccups so you might as well find a backup plan.

Don’t give up on your health and fitness just because you had a change in your schedule. Adapt, adjust, and make every effort to stick to your plan!

Get What You Put In

In order to experience true heath and fitness, you must give attention in those areas. There is no way around that.

Obtaining a fit body will never ever come from a fad diet, wrap, surgery, pill or injection. Health comes from what you put in your mouth and how you move your body. The body you desire will never come from a quick fix. Success will come from living authentically healthy in all aspects of your life.

If you attempt to cheat with a pill or fad diet, the best you can hope for is a smaller dress size. Don’t expect health. You deserve much more than that and you owe it to yourself.

So go ahead do the work, give it your best and you’ll get in return a life that’s healthy and fit and increasingly satisfying.

Choose to consistently test your limits and force yourself out of that comfort zone. Pushing yourself to new limits is what will get you to your goal, not staying within the confines of comfort.

So go ahead, go find pleasure in the new difficult exercises, the unfamiliar, the ones that truly test your grit!

When is the best time to exercise?


When’s the best time to exercise?

The time of day you workout gets a lot of buzz but how important is it? Let’s take a look at how the time of day can the outcome

When you WILL actually exercise!

Plain and simple, exercising is better than no exercise. So schedule your workout during a time you know you can complete a workout.

When you feeling BEST
Are you a night owl? Work out at night. Are you a Morning, person? Work out first thing in the morning, etc. Any time you pick that you can push yourself is the best time. The most notable physiological advantages happen when you push yourself further than you’ve ever pushed before. There’s a reason the Insanity Fitness program’s mantra is “Dig Deeper.” The more you drive yourself to 100% effort, the more you push your body into an adaptive state, which is exactly what’s needed for significant changes to occur.

If you exercise in the morning in a fasted state, your body will be forced to utilize the fat stores for energy. Over time as you continue to do so your body becomes more efficient at burning fat, which is cool.

As a last resort, you can workout in the evening. However, unless it is the ONLY time you can work out or the only time you feel at peek to perform your best it is recommended to avoid it.
Working out prior to bedtime can affect your sleep in a negative way. Exercise disrupts melatonin production, the hormone that regulates sleep, among other things. This isn’t ideal because sleep is vital to recovery.

Bottom line, we all need to exercise, and most of us can eat better too. As a matter of fact many need to drop the evening cocktail! When ingested it completely halts the fat burning process. So. when it comes to getting your best possible results eat clean, workout and remember psychology often trumps physiology. Exercise when you can focus on your performance and form. Then choose your preferred workout time based on your results. It’s really that simple. Looking for more fitness tips visit: www.positivelydiesel.com/blog
