My clients that have successfully lost weight have one thing in common. They wanted it.
They wanted to drop excess pounds more than they wanted to keep them. You want it, too, you say…but how much? Instead of excuses they found possibilities to make healthy choices and squeezed in moments to move no matter what.
Over the years, I’ve received photos of clients doing push ups in the snow, squats in an O.R. hospital room, biking in the rain, and crunches on the floor of a plush office.
We are animals meant to MOVE. Go get ‘em tiger. Get back in touch with this need, the fire within you. Feel your heart pumping. Steal away for a quick walk during your lunch break, something to make you feel alive in your body.
Here’s a quick workout if you don’t know what to do.
Squats – 20 reps
Push ups – 20 reps (or just hold the top of a push up and count to 60)
Crunches – 40 plus reps
Core hold – 30 to 60 seconds
