Chocolate PB Oatmeal Recipe

Breakfast-Power-Meal-for-2020-Blog-Image

I will never claim to be an amazing cook, but there are a few things I eat regularly that are delicious. I am a creature of habit and tend to stick with foods that I know. It does make eating healthy as a lifestyle much easier when you enjoy the foods you eat. One of my favorite morning meals is a recipe I stumbled upon long ago for Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Oatmeal. I have this at least three times weekly along with eggs. This is a tasty way to power up and start your day with protein and good carbs. I rarely post recipes as I generally eat simply, but this one is special and I want to share it with you all.

Transformation Challenge Winners!

I am extremely proud of all my contestants who just completed my annual “Transformer Transformation Challenge 2019” that took place right after Thanksgiving and finished before the New Year.

The Grand Prize winner receiving over $1500 in cash & prizes is Eric Gagnon from MA, USA (IG: @kagedfireman). I was extremely impressed with his 4-week accomplishment and moving essay. He wins $500 cash, training with me in-person or online, S-Force watch, Fitmark Envoy duffle, ISSA scholarship (certified personal trainer), Kaged Muscle stack, Kodiak Cakes package, Train Magazine feature, and more! Eric used my ‘Diamond Cutter’ program for the Challenge.

“As far as my plans for 2020 i see nothing but good things coming! Not only am I in better shape but I also made HUGE progress towards my anxiety when it comes to doing cardio exercises. That alone will improve my overall health which is a necessity for my job as a firefighter. Ive improved my mental health overall too which in turn will benefit my family which is most important to me.”   -Eric

My second Runner-Up is Steven Johnson from TN, USA (IG: the_stevie_jay). He also used my Diamond Cutter program for the Challenge. Here are some good words from Steven’s essay:

“Overall, the Transformer Transformation Challenge 2019 taught me much about myself, my body, and how certain macro/micronutrients affect me when it comes to how I feel, and how I perform. I will be bringing all the knowledge I gained from this Challenge of do’s and do nots into 2020, and I hope to be able to share this experience, my knowledge with people I know, and people I meet.” -Steven

New Year New Habits

New-Year-New-Habits-Blog-Image

A New Year is approaching, people set big fitness goals for themselves, the gyms are packed, and so on. We all know this endless cycle. I’ve heard various statistics that 73-80% of people give up on their New Year resolutions within a month and only 8% accomplish their resolutions in a timely manner. This upcoming New Year is a big one. It’s the start of a new decade. So let’s do things differently and set ourselves up to be in that 8% who accomplishes instead of quits. The trick is to set attainable goals and not try to be a completely different person come January 1st. It’s taken you a lifetime to build the bad habits you have developed and it’s going to take time to build new ones. Various research sources say it takes about 66 days of doing something for it to become a habit. Instead of trying an ‘extreme’ diet or intense new workout program let’s focus on building new habits that will help you achieve your New Year fitness goals. Here are a few things I challenge you to do for 66 days minimum that will have a great impact on you achieving new fitness milestones in 2020.

Count It Down: Get a new 2020 Calendar and circle 66 days from now. As each day passes make a mark and count it down. Place this calendar somewhere you will see it multiple times a day. A visual reminder will help you stay on track.

Maximize Your Workout: Split it Up!

Maximize-Your-Workout-Split-it-Up-Blog-Image

Doing something is better than nothing. This is a true statement when it comes to ones fitness. Walking around the block is always going to be better than sitting on the couch. Going to the gym even twice a week is better than nothing at all. In an ideal, perfect world we are all being active to some degree every single day. But life isn’t always perfect and our time is limited between work, family, and other obligations. A busy life shouldn’t mean we give up on our fitness altogether. It’s important to make the most of our situation. There is no one magic way to workout, or super special routine that works better than all others. The best workouts are the ones you can do consistently. I always recommend starting with a fitness program you can stick with time and frequency wise versus over committing and getting burned out. Then as the results start coming and motivation rises you can always increase your activity. Consistency is more important then trying to go all out and do everything perfectly. It doesn’t matter if you workout six times a week at an hour each session for 3 months then quit. I’d rather see you workout three times a week at 30 minutes for the rest of your life.

When it comes to working out and deciding what parts of the body to work and on what days, there are lots of options. This concept of working specific muscle groups on certain days is called a ‘Split’. You are splitting up the body into either upper body, lower body, or even more specifically like chest, back, or arms. I am going to share some of the most common types of splits as well as a few of my personal favorites. It’s a good idea to change your ‘Split’ up every now and then for variety. I have the splits arranged by how many days you are able to workout in a week. These are definitely not all the possibilities. There really are no rules to designing splits, but do allow for muscle groups to rest and then find what works best for your body.

My Fitmark Lifestyle

Check out my latest article for Fitmark bags on how they have become a huge part of my daily life:

My Fitmark bags have been a daily companion of mine for many years now. As a certified trainer, natural fitness pro world champion, writer and model for magazines, and blogger my life revolves around various aspects of fitness. How I eat has become a lifestyle for me. One thing I say often is that Fitmark bags are one of the single most useful tools helping me keep my nutrition on track. This is not just a marketing statement, but the absolute truth. A day has not gone by in the last several years with all of life’s adventures where I didn’t have Fitmark by my side. I thought it would be helpful and fun to share all the various ways I have used my collection of Fitmark bags through the years.
