I was thinking about my followers and wondered how I can help you really achieve your ideal body weight. I can provide you great information about Interval Training or talk about avoiding sugar…but I felt like something more needed to be said.  This message is short, sweet, and simple. Yet, it’s quite profound. Once you have this figured out, everything else will fall into place. The most important advice on weight loss you’ll ever receive.

The Christmas Guide to Workout DVDs

Posted by on Dec 23, 2013 in Fitness, Holiday, Weight Loss | 0 comments

Christmas morning. You tear off the wrapping paper to reveal the newest workout DVD, the front cover bearing the lean, leotard-clad body of an ex-soap star or TV presenter with blow-dried hair and veneers. Of course, every workout DVD worth its salt boasts a ‘before’ shot showing just how pale and miserable the celebrity was before she shed the baby-weight (and discovered fake tan) – to reassure you that they, too, are Real Women. The promises are tempting, like the half-empty box of Celebrations at your side. Hard to believe that all the secrets of a coveted dress size are contained within one shiny disc! From January 1st you diligently perform the routines, spurred on by the defined abs of the Real Woman on screen – until approximately January 4th work kicks back in.

You Can’t Out-Exercise A Bad Diet

Posted by on Dec 19, 2013 in Skinny Tips & Quotes | 0 comments

You can’t out-exercise a bad diet. Yes, exercise is great for your overall health and fantastic for weight loss, but if your diet is horrible – you still won’t be able to lose weight. I have had clients who continued to snack on junk food and drink beer on the weekends. They thought it wasn’t that big of a deal and they didn’t think that the calories would add up. Guess again! Those calories really do add up, and ultimately will cost you your weight loss success. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy consistently (perhaps you’ll find that the 90/10 rule works for you). Believe you will achieve your overall health goals. You will see results! Slow and steady wins the race, right? ;) Feel free to follow us, however you like: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram Feel free to follow Skinny Twinkie: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest,...
