Transformation Thursday: Cabo & Picking Up 28s After 22 Years!

    Yesterday I landed in Cabo Mexico for a business event.

    I’m only here for 5 days so I figured I need to nail how I handle the jet lag (7 hours behind).

    So the first thing I did was head to the beach for some sunlight and movement.

    Every time I’m on a beach or by a pool I can’t help but think of the 1000s of conversations I’ve had with people who share one dark secret:

    “I absolutely hate taking my shirt off or wearing a bikini…

    I don’t like how I look and I feel really self conscious. It’s embarassing”

    Truth is, I used to feel like this back in the day. Back when I had “moobs and a pot belly”, I’d hate it when summer rolls around.

    Clothes never fit well, being at the pool was uncomfortable, and social events just felt awkward…

    I was more worried about what I thought others were thinking of me than actually paying attention to any conversation or interaction I was involved with.

    It’s a paralysing position to be in.

    But one so easily fixed.

    All it requires is a clear plan of action with a holistic approach tailored to a busy lifestyle like yours.

    And luckily, our next cohort is around the corner, with the deadline for applications on Monday.

    Let’s fix this problem once and for all.

    In the meantime, let’s dive into this week’s Transformation Thursday…


    3 Ways To Look, Feel & Perform Your Best

    1. Structure = Freedom

    One of the biggest false economies is thinking working out or meal prepping means you can’t get as much work done.

    The irony is…The fitter you are, the more effective you become. You carry less “operational drag” around with you.

    Personally, I find my biggest problems get solved when I make more time to train. The first thing to do is ring fence time in your day to make it happen, else it never will! 

    2. Win The Mornings

    I was speaking to a group of our members who were struggling with missed workouts. When work gets busy and/or the kids are back home, it can be tough to get your cardio/steps/training in.

    I had a simple suggestion, “Have you tried first thing in the morning?”

    If you don’t have much control of your schedule, or you’re stuck in a commute, it’s the best way to go. 

    3. Is Variety Killing Your Weight Loss?

    Too much variety during a fat loss phase is more of a hindrance than a benefit.

    Always chopping and changing can make things much harder to track. Especially when it comes to packaged foods.

    Processed foods can be off by 20%. So if you’re including a lot of these in your diet, you could be overconsuming. 

    Even if “on paper”, you’re within calorie targets.

    Many “zero calorie” items do contain calories. Food manufacturers can claim a food has zero calories if the serving size offers less than 5 calories!

    Splenda, an artificial sweetener, contains 362 calories per 100g. Real sugar is 387 calories per 100g!

    Which means they are almost identical from an energy perspective… Food for thought!

    Want To Go Deeper In Your Journey?

    In this next part of our Fat Loss For The Final Time Series, we dive into what exactly it takes to build muscle without amazing genetics.

    Expect to learn what makes a muscle grow, the importance of execution and range of motion, and when exactly you should be increasing the weight or adding reps to your training.

    We also cover how to maximise recovery so your muscles are actually able to grow, an often overlooked factor when it comes to this process.

    If I look at the commonalities in all who successfully stay in shape, training to build muscle whilst eating for health is one of the big ones.
