1. They see each day with perspective
Fail to meet your fitness goals today? move on. Tomorrow is another day to make smarter decisions. When you wake up, rededicate yourself to your fitness goals without beating yourself about whatever mistakes you made in the past. After all, you can’t change what you did yesterday. All you can control is right now. So get to it!
2. They find ways around their excuses
If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t quite get fit, it may be your proclivity for caving to pressure. And that pressure may be self-induced. Fit people do not give into excuses for why they shouldn’t exercise. Quite the contrary. They are continually finding reasons why they should hit the gym and find pockets of time to do it—even if the trip to the gym is shorter than usual.
3. They eat and sleep well
Study after study has shown the benefit of eating whole, unprocessed foods. It provides energy and strength, helps you feel full throughout the day, and makes your time in the gym as fruitful as possible. Getting good sleep is equally as important, as it keeps all your bodily systems in rhythm. Put these two fit activities together and you’re well on your way to optimal fitness.
4. They track progress
For some, keeping tabs on health progress is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Once you get into the routine, however, you will become a believer in the power of tracking your progress. Tracking serves to both reward and motivate you, as you see that the countless hours in the gym and smart food choices lead to a healthier weight and greater strength—a.k.a. better overall fitness and health.
5. They lean on a fitness professional
The final thing fit people do is rely on someone with lots of knowhow in the realm of fitness. This is why my clients have such a high success rate in achieving their goals – because i make sure that they stick with it! i have a sincere interest in your overall health and well-being and know how to help you reach the goals that can seem so far away when you’re trying to achieve it on your own.

Emotion Creates Motion
Can you remember a time when you felt completely discouraged with your body? it’s easy to beat yourself up when the body that you have is miles from the one you want. When negative emotions flood over you resist the urge to get down on yourself, rather turn the tides in your favor. You may have heard the expression ‘emotion creates motion’. This is a very powerful tool. Channel your dissatisfaction with your body into ‘motion’. Take control of your body and put a plan into action.
Portobello Eggs Benedict
Have you ever noticed how most of our favourite breakfast dishes centre around a grain+gluten filled item? Breakfast is notoriously a high-carb, low protein meal, which sets you up for a day filled with poor food choices.
So, rather than go with the high-carb flow, start your day off with this Portobello Eggs Benedict – where a marinated and roasted Portobello mushroom cap is used to replace the English muffin. Think of it as a modern, fitness-friendly version of Eggs Benedict that will keep you on track with your results. Enjoy!
What you need
For the Marinade:
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon minced shallot
sea salt and black pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil

2 Tablespoons coconut cream
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon fresh chives, minced
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon water
For the Benedicts:
4 Portobello mushrooms
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 cup baby spinach
1. In a medium bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients. Wash the mushrooms and remove the stems. Place the mushrooms in a ziplock bag with the marinade for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
2. In a medium bowl combine the mustard sauce ingredients. Mix until creamy then store in the fridge.
