How to Stick With Your Fitness Program For LIFE
I made this video for 2 reasons:
1 – someone emailed me a question, which I share in the video
2 – I needed to test out a new app that automatically creates captions so people can get the idea of what I’m sharing even if your sound is off
Here is where I posted it on LinkedIn:
After posting it on my Youtube channel, “Peace Lover” posted a great question (below) – one that is shared by many other people…
This question actually highlights one of the main reasons why people hire me for private 1-on-1 remote coaching.
Most people have an extremely hard time navigating the ebbs and flows of normal life, and often find that a number of things will “throw them off the path”…
Below is an example:

Hi, I’m also in my later 40’s and struggled with being fit my whole life.
I was never significantly overweight, just never fit, never wore a swimsuit much and never a bikini. This last year has been really hard on me with job changes, which result in schedule changes, and other major disruptions that made it hard for me to be consistent.
I’m about 15 pounds heavier that a few months ago because I had to go out of town for an unexpected funeral of a close family member. After eating at restaurants for a couple of weeks, and then the holidays it’s been really hard to get back on track.
I keep doing little things to build momentum but not enough to lose weight after life piles up on me. I have your exercise program and meal plan but when I make a mistake on the healthy diet I have to start over.
When I miss a day for the exercise, I sort of put it on hold and think I’ll start it later when I get through the next problem thrown at me and for the last few months – and I just haven’t been able to really make much progress because of that.
How can I keep myself going when I have disruptions and stay in the mindset that will help me stick with it.
Anything you say can be helpful and thank you in advance.
Again – this is a GREAT question, and I’ll be working on creating a video/audio answer in the next week or so…
But, for now – I will ask you:
