3 Tiny Easy Breezy Steps To Get Your A** Back In Shape

We get daily emails from peeps asking us how to get the ball rolling and BEGIN the process of getting in shape. The short answer is – take a few small steps. You would be totally surprised what you can create with just a few small steps.

Here’s the catch…

You have to know what the RIGHT small steps are!

Here are a few of my easy, breezy, no biggie steps to help you get going…

1. THE ‘WATER TRICK’

Humor me on something…if you don’t give your body any water what does your body try to do with the water it does have? Right! It holds on to it. The reverse is true too. If you give your body a bunch of water, it begins to release it. When it releases the water, guess what happens? The bloat starts to go down and you get leaner!

*Action Step – Increase your water intake everyday until you are up to 1 gallon of water daily. Do this for one full week then go to step 2.

2. THE ‘PLAY DRESS UP’ TRICK

Like to play dress up? Come on, I got your number. Like minds, baby! Like minds! Ok really….After you’ve accomplished the water trick for 7 full days move on to the next trick. I call it “costuming”.

*Action Step 2 – Place your workout outfit on your nightstand. When you wake up in the morning IMMEDIATELY put your workout clothes on. I mean, BEFORE your feet ever touch the floor. Trust me on this. Unless you are planning to go to work in your gym clothes you will get the necessary leverage on yourself to get to the gym. It works like a charm! I do this every single morning.

After doing this for 7 full days move on to the next step…..

3. THE SHAMELESS PLUG

If you did steps one and two you’ve completed the hardest part; which is working on your head!!! Now that you are in the routine of drinking water and getting to the gym we can go to the final step: find out exactly how to eat and train properly.

Man, do I have a great program for you! It’s called …AHEM…Jet Set Body.

    Questions about #2 – Is it better to eat a pre-workout snack before working out in the morning? When waking up, the body has no fuel. What are your thoughts about working out on an empty stomach? Would love to hear what you have to say!

      Hey Alexa!
       
      Regarding your question about pre-workout snack:….Here’s what I do pre-workout…I usually have a cup of oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder and some cinnamon..I wait about 30 min and hit the gym! Honestly, If I tried to do an intense workout on no food I would just crash! LOL Lemme know if that helps!

         @RobertMurgatroyd Thanks Rob! That really helps, actually. I’ve been wanting to work out in the morning but hate when I have no food in my body. I’ve been Googling different ideas for pre-workout snacks or bfasts. The oatmeal + protein powder sounds great. I’m going to try it tomorrow! 🙂

    Rob, I emailed you a couple months ago and you gave me tip #2, the “costuming” tip.  Just thought I’d let you I am now working out 4 days a week, up from ZERO days per week…haven’t missed a single workout in the last 2.5 months.  Thank you!
