Raring to go

It is 2018 Now What?

You have been warming up and getting ready to get on the stage to perform. In your mind you have imagined over and over about how you are going to perform on stage. How you will entertain the audience and how you will make them laugh and intrigue them.

Imagine that all the preparation is over and now you are on stage. Now is the time that you need to perform. Now is the time that you need to stick to your guns and remove any self-doubt. Whatever you planned to do on stage do it without hesitation and don’t back down.

I am sure many of us have already read a few articles recently on how to make resolutions for the new year and how to keep them. We read these articles almost every year around December all the way through February.

This is not one of those articles! I am here to give you a step-by-step guide that will make everything you touch turn into gold. I am here to tell you about the one thing that will make you a winner regardless of your situation.

Women vs. Men: 9 Exercise Facts You Probably Don’t Know but Should

Men and women have different fitness needs.

  1. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention only 6% more men engage in regular exercise than women. It’s high time gyms became more “female-friendly”.
  2. Women are not “female-men” and men are not “male-women”(I bet you didn’t know that) so they need a completely different training regime, nutrition plan, and amount of hydration during exercise.
  3. I had to talk specifically about squats because women love their squats.  Women should use a wider stance when doing squats as their pelvises tilt more. The feet should also face more outwards and the practitioner should avoid going too low. Failing to do so could cause serious injury.
  4. Men may have better upper body strength but women have better lower body strength.
  5. Women exhibit a higher lactate threshold during long distance running thanks to their slow twitch fibre percentage. The longer the distance the more advantageous it becomes.
  6. The heart responds differently to exercise when it comes to men and women. The American College of Cardiology recently declared the “220 minus age” to be flawed. The formula was developed 40 years ago based on a group that was predominantly male.
  7. Women tend to burn more fat than men during workout and men burn more fat than women post workout.
  8. One of the best ways for men to subjectively track fat loss is to measure their waist. Women can use both the waist and the bust to distinguish fat loss from weight loss.
  9. Men who lift weights grow primarily type II muscle which make them bulk up. Women grow primarily type I muscle fibers that are not able to grow as big.

A Fit and Healthy 2018 Starts With Your Mind

Well, here we are again – New Year’s resolutions time! It’s that time when we resolve to do all the things we know we should do in order to live the better life we imagine for ourselves. And for most of us, those resolutions last all of ten minutes! Then we’re back doing the same old things that have brought us to a life that we’re less than happy with. And as the old saying goes: If you want things in your life to change, you have to change things in your life.

This is true for all areas of our life, but specifically we’re going to look at health and fitness in this piece. Most of us aren’t exactly where we want to be in terms of our health and fitness level. We want to be healthier, more trim and toned than we are at the moment.

We start off with the best of intentions. We decide that once and for all: We’ll eat more healthily, we’ll go to the gym and do all the things we know we need to do in order to get fit and healthy this year. So we do that stuff for a while, and then we stop.

What usually happens is that we reach a point where the temptation to eat or drink what we know we shouldn’t becomes too strong. We succumb to the bad weather blues when it comes to going out for a run, or we stay in bed for that extra hour instead of getting up and going to the gym for the workout that we committed to a few weeks ago. Then we gradually slip back into our old patterns of too little exercise and too much of the wrong kinds of food.

So how can we avoid slipping back like this and keep our new healthy eating and fitness regime going? Continue reading

If Hell Had a Workout Boot-camp

workout hellIf people in hell were forced to work out as a punishment it would probably resemble what me and my teammates went through during the 1998 Coast Open Karate Championship preparation.

Our coach – Sensei Yetoo – used to call it the blue balls workout because we would all feel like someone kicked us in the nuts when we were finished due to the intensity of the workout.

The workout takes a little over an hour to complete. Mombasa is a beautiful island and we trained on the beach on soft sand which made it even tougher.

Today I would like to share this workout from the depths of hell so you can enjoy it as much as I did. Continue reading

How to SET UP 2018 TO BE YOUR BEST YEAR YET! (Step by Step Action Guide)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 
If you want to seriously kick ass in your life or business in 2018 then it’s important you are clear on what you want, what and when you are doing it, and actually scheduling it into your planner.
Let’s face it, nothing gets complete unless it’s scheduled.  How many of us start lots of things, but don’t end up completing them? I’m totally guilty of that if I don’t plan ahead and allot time for the steps to work towards my targeted goals.
5 Steps to Setting Up 2018 to be the Best Year of Your Life Yet! 
Scheduling your lifestyle and the activities you want to do in 2018 will help ensure your life is balanced the way you desire it to be, as well as forecast your income accordingly.
Too often people have a dream and a vision for their life but they don’t spend the time to actually map out what that looks like, so it stays as a dream that “one day” they will strive for, rather than an actualization of that dream into reality.
If you want to travel more, schedule it in!
If you want to make more money by developing and selling a product or service, schedule it in!
If you want to achieve major goals like completing a marathon or losing 50 lbs, schedule the deadline in!

Step 1) Schedule all of the celebrations of your loved ones.
It’s important to celebrate with those closest to you, such as their birthdays, graduations or big events, and having it scheduled in will remind you of planning ahead to get something special and also so you keep the date free.
Step 2) Schedule all of the holidays you wish to take.
For this, start with the public holidays.
Next, schedule the time your leave from your job or the time off you wish to take from your business. For example, I’m planning to take a break once every 3 months and take a short trip or have a staycation.
Scheduling holidays is ultra crucial. It gives you something to look forward to which keeps you engaged during the time you’re working, but it also serves as a time to relax, rejuvenate and refocus on what you’re achieving in your life.
Step 3) Schedule the major business/career goals that you want to achieve.
For example, if you’re an entrepreneur, schedule the product launches, community challenges or other promotions that you plan to do in 2018 for your business. This not only provides you clarity on what to focus on, but also provides a good prediction of your income for the year.
Step 4) Schedule weekly or regular activities that you will need to complete to move you towards your larger goals.
For example, for entrepreneurs you can schedule your weekly meetings with your team on Monday to ensure everyone knows the focus of the week, schedule money dates with your team to ensure you’re on track income wise and understand what expenses are going out and what is flowing in. As well, make sure you have a separate money date with your partner for your personal money situation.
Step 5) Schedule the due dates of your goals for the year or any other ad-hoc activities that you want to accomplish.
This is another great way of reminding you of the major goals you’re trying to achieve. Since you already scheduled your major work commitments, this could be any other goal related to your personal growth, health, relationships, personal growth, physical environment, finances, and fun & recreation.
Scheduling your life this way will allow you to enter 2018 feeling calm and in control (rather than stressed and overwhelmed), and that as long as you stick to your plans, you will achieve the things that you have committed to do.
ACTIONABLE STEP:
Now it’s your turn – take 30 minutes to create your year. Remember, many people talk about making the new year their best ever but few actually take the time to plan it out and make it so. Will you be the few that will actually take action?

Before You Ever Let Someone Stick Their Tongue Down Your Throat Ever Again

People, you need to take your tongues seriously. I don’t mean like the way Miley Cyrus does. I mean she was recently sued for nearly killing someone with it according to a report by Rolling Stones.

What I am talking about is even more serious.  Did you know that you could see how fit or healthy you are just by examining your tongue?

Traver H, Bloem of breakingmuscle.com explains: “TCM believes the tongue is a microcosm of the entire body and will reflect its excesses and deficiencies. Being directly related to the stomach by proximity and availability, the tongue acts as a very good reflection of our digestive systems. If your tongue’s neighbor the stomach is having problems, it’s most likely going to spill over into your tongue’s life.” Continue reading

This Article can help you MASSIVELY KICK BUTT in 2018!

innerww.jpg

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day celebrating with your loved ones!

There’s no better time than now to take a look at your life and work and assess some areas that are ripe for improvement.

Invest your time in personal growth to improve you life, relationships, and/or career.​​​​​​​
I suggest taking a hard look at the last year and asking yourself a few very important questions:
  • What was your biggest breakthrough and how can you build on it?
  • What did you learn from your biggest failure or mistake?
  • What have you been wanting to do, but haven’t done yet? Why?
Your answers to those questions may create a lightbulb moment that sets the tone for an awesome 2018!
If the final question hits especially close to home (which means that you’ve got a dream you need to see through) then I highly recommend you take some time to reflect on what stopped you from taking action to pursue this dream.
For some of you, it’s because one or more of the following:
-You put yourself last and others first.
-Other things became a priority because you’re too stressed out dealing with those other things, you don’t have the time to do that thing you want to really do.
-You lack confidence in yourself to see this dream through.
-You’re a little bit addicted to Self-Sabotaging your Success (not on purpose of course!)
-You don’t feel good enough.
-You are fearful of failure.
I’ve been there in all of the above too.
In the following days leading up into the first week of January, as a gift to you for being part of my e-community, I am going to have a series of emails to support you in reflecting on where you are right now, envisioning what you want to have and where you want to be for 2018 and helping you look at some ways to get there.
I’ve also got an incredible and affordable virtual group coaching program coming up called Unleash Your Inner Wonder Woman, in which, this is going to be VERY intimate tribe, where each of the women will be coached by me in a supportive, safe and like-minded group to really MASTER 2018 in various areas of your life! We will be focusing on a specific theme (area of life) each month throughout the year.
This may look like:
-Be more confident in the boardroom or bedroom.
-Have deeper, Fulfilling relationships with your partner, friends and/or loved ones.
-Grow your Business – step out of fear to shine and sell with your heart.
​​​​​​​-Find that man of your dreams.
-Be the parent you’ve always wanted to be.
-Learning how to feel comfortable in the skin you’re in (love your body!)
-Finally losing unwanted weight.
-Be at Peace with Food.
-Get your finances in order.
-Increase your self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence so you be happier.
​​​​​​​-Energetically and easily attract positive things into your life.
No Matter what your goals are, this group will be able to support you by helping you create the MINDSET to generate successful results in this year-long program.  This is NOT a quick fix, rather it is meant to create long-lasting habits and results for you!
This Group Coaching Program is already half way filled, which means there are only 5 spots left and it begins January 9th.
So, in the next couple weeks, whether you decide to join me or not,  I’m going to plant some seeds to help you plan for success for 2018. 
Please look for emails from me to guide you on reflecting and envisioning, and tips on how to move forward because my wish for you is to TRULY live your BEST SELF yet!
If you know you’re ready to dive deeper, you’re ready to be in a tribe of ravishing, enthusiastic, like-minded and positive women so that you can grow together mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to really tap into that Divine Goddess that you are, then
