Dear Get Fit members,

Our minds can play tricks on us. And we know it's not as easy as reading the article below and going for it, but hopefully it will give you some food for thought. My friend Maya still has spots available in her Emotional Eating One Day Intensive course on 1/21. She helps people with the habits we describe below so if it's one of your "issues" you may want to check it out!

Have an amazing weekend!

Your Friends in Fitness,

Lisa, Nancy & Karen

Thought you needed this
Why are you still living in a body that you're unhappy with?

 In our experience, people carry ‘unwanted’ pounds for very specific reasons. These reasons are subconscious, which is where things get tricky.

Self-sabotage is your subconscious way of protecting yourself.

Sounds crazy, but it makes sense when you realize that it is a defense mechanism meant to keep things in your life from changing. 

You say that you want to lose weight to look and feel amazing, but your subconscious is pulling the strings behind the scenes, keeping your goals just out of reach.

As long as your subconscious believes that you are safer being out-of-shape then you'll be stuck.

Your most valiant efforts will be undermined by self-sabotage every single time.

Frustrating, right?

But don't give up.

There's a way to turn everything around, and it all starts with finding out the reason that your subconscious views being out-of-shape as being safe.

Once you turn the light on to that reason then it will no longer have any power over you.

So, lets dig around for your reason.

Do you believe...Change is bad? It’s common to fear the unknown, but this could very well be the reason that you’re not reaching your goal. Being comfortable with where you are today could be the reason that you sabotage your efforts to improve your life through change.

Do you believe...Success will bring loss? If you met your weight loss goal, would it bring out resentment and jealousy in your friends and family? Are they counting on you to be the ‘screw-up’?

Do you believe...You don’t deserve it? Has someone in your life made you believe that you aren’t worthy of success? Or that they wouldn’t accept you if you were more successful than they are?

Do you believe...You’re not capable? Are you unable to imagine yourself at your goal weight? Does the possibility of achieving your goal not seem real?

Spend time thinking about these tough questions and discover why it is that you aren’t meeting your goals. Once your whole mind is primed for success, then nothing will be able to stop you.

What the mind believes the body achieves.

Exercise is a huge part of the equation when it comes to achieving weight loss.

We are passionate about seeing our clients achieve results—without wasting time, energy and effort on mistakes.

You’re In Charge
While there are many things in life that you do not have direct control over, what ends up in your mouth is not one of them! You control what you eat. Instead of eating extra large portions, chose wisely and your body and waistline will thank you for it. Couple this with a regular fitness routine and you will find that reaching and maintaining your goal weight is easier than ever.
Quinoa and Winter Squash Salad
This recipe is another great way to enjoy protein-filled quinoa. Winter squash combined with celery, onion and parsley makes a healthy and comforting side dish.

Servings: 10

Here’s what you need…
  • 2 yellow onions, diced
  • 4 celery stalks, diced
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 2 cups diced squash, butternut or any other fall or winter squash
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • dash of freshly ground sea salt
  • zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 4 sprigs of parsley, finely minced
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the onions, celery, carrots and squash in a large bowl. Mix in the oil and syrup, then sprinkle the salt and lemon zest. Mix until well combined and then place on a shallow baking dish. Cover the dish and bake for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes remove cover and cook for another 15 minutes.
  3. While the vegetables are in the oven, put the quinoa and water in a saucepan, cover and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for about 25 minutes over low heat, until the water is absorbed.
  4. Combine the vegetables and cooked quinoa together with the lemon juice and parsley. Serve warm or chilled.

50 Miles of Gratitude: (12) Training & XTERRA Events

….and My Story Runs On….

I am still determined to finish my 50 blogs posts about my first 50 miler that happened almost a year ago! When I blog about a topic that I can relate back to it, then I just keep adding to it!

Yesterday, I did the XTERRA White Tank 20K “race”. I put race in parenthesis as you know I normally use races as training runs for my bigger races (first 100K in 6 weeks!). I already blogged about Aravaipa races awhile back.

This race is no joke from an elevation profile. Their website describes it as:

“For those who prefer a course with pain and punishment, the long course is 20k of grueling single track with over 1500 feet of climbing. Starting from the group campground, runners wind their way up Ironwood to the Waddell trail. Once you reach the first aid station be prepared to go up, the next three miles are all climbing….” You can see my Tom Tom results here.

Happy Peeps
I think I’ve done your class 3 or 4 times now, and every time, I pick up something new.When I first took your class, I was a gigantic heel striker, reaching way out in front, straight-legged, and completely airborne… and could barely walk because of associated knee problems .You probably don’t recall, because it was years ago, but I first came to your class because I didn’t think I could ever run again, and you were my last-ditch effort.There are really no words for how grateful I am for ChiRunning, for your class, and for you personally, because you’ve helped me see that I’m not crazy for thinking I can run for the rest of my life. What runner doesn’t want to run forever??? You told us at that first session that it’s a journey, and it really is. I am not the runner I was when I first came to you. I won’t be the same runner in 10 years. I’m better now, and I’ll continue to evolve in the future. I love that I learn something every time I lace up my shoes. Whether it’s an AHA moment about my cadence or how I’m holding my shoulders, I become aware, and I learn, and I adjust.As I’m getting older, I’m even more aware of minor adjustments and changes, and ChiRunning has helped me understand what’s going on and how to accommodate my ever-changing needs.
