Are your thoughts ruining your life?

If you’re reading this know it isn’t by accident. You were meant to read this and begin the process of letting go of your limiting beliefs.

 

You see, far too many of us are walking around with a ‘poverty mindset’ and then wonder why we lack those things we truly desire.

Whatever you are FOCUSING on the most will manifest itself in your life. Do any of these limiting beliefs sound familiar?

🔹️I’ll never be able to afford it.
🔹️I don’t believe I can do it.
🔹️I’ll never lose this weight!
🔹️They just have it easier than I do.
🔹️I’ll always be alone.
🔹️This is my lot in life.
🔹️I’m just not motivated.
🔹️I have no energy!
🔹️I’m just unlucky.
🔹️I’ll start tomorrow. [procrastinate & avoid]
🔹️I’m such a failure.
🔹️I failed before so why try again?

All of these are self-fulfilling prophecies, and the MORE you repeat them to yourself the MORE you will struggle with them. Think of your thought life as a big magnet. Whatever dominates your thinking the most is what you will attract into your life.

Make sense?

There is abundance EVERYWHERE and you don’t have to struggle for the rest of your life.

You can either CHOOSE to believe that you will always struggle or you can CHOOSE to believe that you will OVERCOME.

Let go of those negative, unproductive, patterns of thinking and being. They aren’t helping you and are only keeping you stuck.

Begin today to FOCUS on the life you want. Follow that up with affirmations that reflect the life you want, and then take ACTION.

Yes, it will be hard to do at first. You will want to reject what you’re doing, but in time you will start to accept this new information.

Remember that in order to RECEIVE you must first BELIEVE. ☝️

Do you need to take out some mental ‘trash’ and renew your mind? Are you confused as to where to start and feel overwhelmed?

If so, I want to help you on this journey. I too struggled unnecessarily for a long time. Then one day I got tired of how my life looked and how I was living. I was tired of not being happy, using food to cope, and missing out on really living life. I had allowed myself to become a prisoner in my own body because of the weight.

I had hit my ‘bottom’ and to be honest that’s the best place one can be at times. You’re left with no other choice but to fight or die. I chose to fight and here I am today. I want you to choose to fight as well.

There will be no perfect time to start, so just do it now. You’ll try to talk yourself out of it like you’ve done a million times before. I want you to stop doing that. That is just a tactic used by the enemy to keep you stuck and miserable. Take a leap of faith and trust that God will help see you through this.

Reach out to me today for a phone consultation. I can work with you no matter where you call home. I have clients all over the globe who are finding freedom from those things that used to hold them back. You can be one of them too.

Go here to set up the call that can radically change your life.

Also, be sure to grab my FREE fat loss guide. It also has a sample menu for you to follow.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Tips on dealing with life’s struggles

I have received a lot of messages from folks regarding depression and this time of year. I know that for many it is a joyous time, but for some of you it is very hard. Maybe you’re dealing with the recent loss of a loved one, a relationship has ended, etc.

No matter the case, I want you to know that I get it. You are not alone and you don’t need to feel guilty or ashamed for FEELING depressed.

If you have followed me for any amount of time you know that I will not say, “I AM” depressed, but I will say that I feel depressed. When we say, “I am” we are owning that thing or feeling, and I don’t want to own depression, but I will allow myself to feel it and process it in a healthy way.

It has been my experience working with clients that far too many Christians suffer in silence when it comes to depression. They feel as if they aren’t ‘spiritual’ enough, so that’s why they feel depressed. You’ll even hear other Christians tell them to just “pray it away!”, as if it was that easy. Now, I do know, and believe in the power of prayer, but comments like that are incredibly insensitive to the person suffering before you.

I’m going to share my testimony of sorts and how I handle dealing with depression. This isn’t advice for you to take, but what I choose to do.

Many people are shocked when I tell them that I have dealt with depression, and anxiety for the better part of my existence on this big ball of mud.

There is no shame in ‘FEELING’ depressed or anxious. I say “feel” because I am very careful in how I choose my words surrounding anything. I won’t own depression or anxiety. I won’t say “I am depressed” but I will say “I feel depressed.” By doing this I have not personalized it or made it about me, it is just a feeling I’m experiencing at that moment.

I think the important thing to keep in mind is that everyone has dealt with this at some point and time, it’s just to what severity. I have found that those who deal with, myself included, often felt like they are the only one or that they are somehow defective.

There are a myriad of reasons as to why someone may deal with depression or anxiety. If you have a history of emotional, sexual, or physical abuse and didn’t have some level of depression or anxiety I would be shocked.

These types of childhood trauma, at a young age, literally change the brain. As a child you were constantly on guard, waiting for the next thing to happen. Being in this constant state of ‘fight or flight’ keeps cortisol [stress] levels high, even when the danger is gone. This usually will carry on into adulthood. This is just a snippet of the research I’ve come across, and it helped me as a survivor, to understand what I was dealing with.

I will share how I have managed this in my own life. I am not against antidepressants, but no longer use them. I chose to come off of them as they just made me ‘flat’ emotionally. I never had any really good days or bad days, I just felt ‘meh’ most of the time.

This has worked for me and it has been proven in studies to work for many who deal with depression and anxiety.

  1. I pay very close attention to my diet. I ensure that I get all the necessary vitamins and minerals my body needs to function. Many people who eat a diet high in processed foods, sugar, fat; tend to be more depressed than others.
  2. I strength train, and move my body however I can. This release of endorphins helps tremendously with depression and anxiety. It also give me an outlet for all those feelings I’ve stored up.
  3. When I feel my mood shift I gently remind myself that I have been here before and that it will be okay. I just make myself do those things that help me maintain, such as being mindful of diet, and continuing to exercise. Most who become depressed just say “f**k it” and crawl into a hole. I have found that I have to act against those impulses. I know that if I let myself go there that it will only get worse. I have to force myself to act in spite of how I feel.
  4. I have a support system. It’s very easy to feel like you’re the only one who feels this way, and that can lead to isolation. This is where the ‘enemy’ can really beat you up. You need to surround yourself with people you can safely share with.
  5. I don’t self medicate with food, alcohol, etc. I allow myself to feel EVERYTHING. If you run from this you’ll only compound your problems.
  6. I watch my intake of caffeine. If you have issues with anxiety this can exacerbate the problem.
  7. I don’t allow others to minimize my experience. There are many who say “just get over it.” If it were that easy I believe many would. No one who has truly suffered from deep depression wants to feel that way.
  8. I give myself permission to be human. No one is ‘depression’ or ‘anxiety’ it is just something you’re dealing with at the moment. Remember that no one has it all together, and this doesn’t define me, it’s just a part of my story that I can use to help others know that they are not alone.

I hope this helps someone out there to know they aren’t alone. If this message resonates with you hit reply and let me know about.

It will explain in detail the importance of nutrition, why macros [carbohydrates, protein, fat] are ALL needed, and important, in your daily diet. It also will provide you with in depth questions you can answer to see exactly where you might be ‘stuck’ so you can begin to work on, and be rid of, unhealthy ways of coping. You no longer have to use food or anything else to numb out or ‘escape’ the trials of life.

You no longer have to struggle with losing weight and getting in shape

“At Last!  A Weight Loss Program That Actually Produces Long-Lasting & Life-Changing Results!”

Discover the Tricks to Weight Loss That Bobbi and So Many Others Have At Born Again Fitness…

 

Dear Friend:

It’s really true…You CAN Lose Weight and Keep it Off FOREVER!  And, it really isn’t difficult…once you let me show you how…

Now, for all my skeptical friends out there, let me share this with you first to set your mind at ease and show you how my faith based coaching program is different – REALLY DIFFERENT!

How is it different? 

You mean, other than the fact that IT WORKS? 

That’s easy.  It’s different because…I UNDERSTAND.

Allow me to fully introduce myself and tell you what I mean when I say, “I understand your struggles with weight loss.”

My name is Brandon and if you’ve followed me for any amount of time you know that for years I struggled with my own weight. I was up to nearly 300 pounds, miserable and felt hopeless. I had tried every diet under the sun until I created a program that allowed me to finally be free from emotional eating, lose body-fat without killing myself and the gym and going on unsustainable, deprivation diets.

I take a mind, body, and spirit approach to weight loss and overcoming life’s hang ups. I have found that if you neglect any of these interrelated areas that change will only be short term. Think back to how many diets you have been on only to gain the weight back and then some. This is because you only focused on diet and exercise. This battle is a mental one as well and if you don’t address the ‘why’s’ behind how you got to the place you are, and aren’t aware of your patterns, long lasting change will continue to elude you in spite of your best efforts. 

So, as you can see, I very much understand the weight loss battle, and I know what it takes to lose weight.  I’ve dedicated my life to helping people lose weight and feel great!  Now, I want to help YOU lose weight and feel great, too!!

Fair enough?

Go HERE to get started.

Need to know a little more?

Sure thing. Let me share some more details about my weight loss program and how you can start seeing results immediately. But first, let me overcome one of the biggest concerns I get when I talk to people about my weight loss program:

“Is this program really right for me?  Am I going to be successful this time?”

 or

 “Is this program really right for me?  Is it going to be too complicated or hard?”

That is a very legitimate concern, and actually one I think needs to be asked.  Unfortunately, in today’s quick-fix and make-money-fast world a lot of good people are sold on weight loss programs that just aren’t appropriate for them.  Many of them are too generic, while others are way too advanced, and some are just downright INSANE!

The short answer to your questions is, YES you will be successful, and NO, it isn’t too complicated or hard. It’s easy to follow and can fit any busy lifestyle. 

Now, let me explain how why…

 

“Finally!  A Weight Loss Program That’s Appropriate for ALL Fitness Levels.”

 

  • I take into consideration where you are at right now and create your customized 4 week training program from your fitness questionnaire.
  • You will be able to do this from your home or the gym, whichever you prefer.

Seriously, this program works for EVERYONE who wants it to. I bet one of my successful clients started off in a very similar spot as you. It doesn’t matter if you live in Idaho, another state, or anywhere else in the world. I can help you achieve your fat loss and overall fitness goals…

 

 

“Now It’s Your Turn To Lose Weight, Feel Great, and Look The Best You Ever Have.  You Deserve It, Too!”

  • You will no longer have to worry about feeling guilty or ashamed about eating certain foods because no foods are off limits!
  • You can enjoy foods that you actually like and still reach your fitness goals.
  • You no longer will have to endure days of being sore because you killed yourself at the gym.

  • You will have the support and guidance that you need to finally be successful.

It is as simple as you showing up, following the program,and getting MASSIVE results. 

But I have to be honest with you as there is a downside to all of this. You are going to have to buy all new clothes to fit your newer, slimmer body. I hope you don’t mind. 😉

Let’s get started.

Are you getting enough FAT in your diet?

Despite being vilified for many years, dietary fats are one of the 3 main nutrients that your body needs to function properly. Their numerous health benefits include controlling blood levels of cholesterol and glucose, preventing the development of cancer, reducing your heart disease risk and supporting your vital organs (including your brain, your heart, your liver and your lungs). However, due to the popularity of low fat diets and the untrue assertion that dietary fat is automatically stored as body fat, many people choose to eliminate this macronutrient from their diet. Doing this can be extremely damaging to your health and in this article I will be discussing why with 14 of the negative symptoms of dietary fat deficiency.

Decrease body-fat and improve overall conditioning

For decreasing body-fat and truly maximizing your time spent in the gym I recommend high intensity circuit training. This is a fast and efficient way to lose body-fat and elicit aerobic and metabolic effects. Research shows that the benefits of circuit training can last as long as 72 hours…far longer than doing traditional cardio for fat loss.

My clients like metabolic workouts because of the shorter rest periods which means the workout is shorter and may actually be more beneficial then someone simply going through the motions for 60 minutes. You are able to get in and out of the gym in a relatively short amount of time.

New Years resolutions tips to help you guarantee success this year.

Hi Friends,

Without delay, let us get into the top new years resolutions tips to help you guarantee success this year. And the first tip is critical to your success:

Be Realistic: This is the thing that you absolutely must start out with. If you are not realistic about your new years resolution, you are setting yourself up for failure. For instance, if your new years resolution is to lose 40 pounds in the next 3 months, that is a very big goal. Why not aim a little lower (say 20 pounds) and then when you reach that goal, set another.

Create a Plan: It’s not enough to make a new years resolution on New Year’s Eve and then wish for success in the new year. You have to think your resolution through and create a plan of attack. In fact, the earlier you start that plan, the better.

How to swing a kettlebell correctly!

The kettlebell swing is the foundation movement for a large proportion of kettlebell exercises.

The swing utilizes a hip thrust that is fundamental to other kettlebell exercises such as the kettlebell clean and the kettlebell one arm snatch.

The swing maximizes muscular endurance in the back and waist, is a great lower body strength builder and is a highly effective conditioning exercise.

Are you lazy?

I don’t know about you, but I know plenty of lazy people.

People that would rather spend the entire day parked on their couch than anywhere else.

People that eat take-out food every single night over a good home cooked meal.

People that would choose to have a root canal over working out.

Of course everyone has a few lazy days every once in a while, but it seems like more people lately are making laziness their full time career.

Are you lazy? See if any of the following statements describe you:

Training for a 5K

Training for and completing an organized 5 kilometer walk or run is an ideal way to start a fitness routine, lose weight and build healthy exercise habits.

And for seasoned athletes, a 5K run can jump-start a fitness program, boost exercise motivation, add variety to a stale workout, and exercise with other people. Preparing for a 5K may be intimidating for a beginning exerciser, but follow these ten tips for a fun and injury-free race day.

Set an Appropriate Goal
A 5K (3.2 miles) can take as little as 15 or 20 minutes for fast runners and as much as an hour for walkers. Because there is such a wide range of abilities, it’s important to keep in mind that you are the only one you are competing against, and your goal is to do the best that you can do, avoid injuries, and have fun.

Figure out how many calories you need to support your fitness goals.

So you have decided that you want to lose weight and get into shape. If you plan on making this time successful you need to know how much to eat daily. In terms of your energy needs you can use the formula below to calculate your daily caloric [energy] needs.

I would break these numbers up like so. Take your body weight and use that number for the amount of protein you’ll eat daily. So if you weigh 150 pounds then you’ll eat 150 grams of protein per day. Then take the number you came up with for daily calories and times that by 0.30 and divide by 9. That number will be your daily fat intake in grams. Then take your numbers for protein and fat, add them together, then subtract from your daily calories and divide by 4. This number is your carbohydrate intake in grams.
