You aren’t entitled to fitness, fat loss, or any other result

It takes work to make progress.

How does Family Lifestyle become YOUR Decision?

Family depends on Our behaviors.

Most of us are on auto-pilot when it comes to neglecting our true motivation.

We don’t usually think about deeper aspects of personality until some¬†drastic event happens to us. Like, why did it happen to me?

Do you realize what you’re doing?

I would pause for a moment and consider, the true magnitude of time spent with family.

It could be a parent, sibling, and significant other. Family time is influential no matter what.

Be passionate about a healthy lifestyle.

This is a proud statement of who you are.

A person who loves to live. Life empowers you only if you empower it.

In other words, to gain physical, mental, and emotional strength, you must feel like this…

Responsibility...

Have the responsibility for how you are, for what you do, and for who you do it with.

We eat vegetables. What do you do?

Nutrient-dense food that empowers us to empower ourselves.

Fresh food.

You aren’t what you eat;You’re what you digest.

Improve your digestive health by understanding it.

Sure, you can learn great nutrition tips from EllisonFitness, but the truth is that you’re already well equipped.

With body and mind, all you need is a little inspiration.

Inspire Family…

Role models are great to have. I gain respect when witnessing character, knowledge, and passion that that is virtuous to me.

Even though I may try, some traits are not for me to master. We are too unique, and I am what I am. Our benefit, though is our positive alliance.

My oldest brother inspires me, and the best part is that it’s mutual. I inspire him with this blog…unless I get too busy to write new posts!

He said this great truth about Lifestyle that I had to share:

Health testimonial:

Making physical fitness a lifestyle choice is one of the best decisions I’ve made and has changed the quality of my life for the better.

I strongly believe¬†consistency is the most important factor for determining success. Exercise and eating healthy requires dedication, discipline, and educating yourself on how to best achieve these goals. That’s why approaching physical fitness as a “lifestyle” makes so much more sense. It becomes something permanent rather than a fleeting vague goal.

Way to go, brother! Success is built upon consistency and successful behaviors.

How to get an amazing body, with family.

You are you, and I am me.

We evolve habits that promote health.

Imagine if eating vegetables was your habit — eating healthy is easy then.

Therefore, being lean with me is the right thing to do.

Ellison Fitness to BURN Excess Weight and Get Ripped for ’20-TEN!

New Years Resolutions raise a certain feeling.

There was a lot of food during the holidays. I felt like I could¬†hold myself back, but once the warm freshly baked smell penetrated my senses… there was no going back. Let’s face it, when the food is even more plentiful than the eating team, feasting becomes festive.

STEP 1) Create realistic goals

I don’t care if you want to lose 30 pounds, it’s not going to happen until you get real with yourself.

My Realistic Goal: Eat very clean for the next 26 out of 30 days (1 relax day per week), enjoy a plethora of healthy home cooked meals, and BURN OFF PURE FAT STORES.

STEP 2) It isn’t about what you can’t¬†eat, but that which you CAN eat.

Too many people focus on what they shouldn’t eat instead of ¬†viking raiding the river of what you CAN eat. There are a lot of good foods out there!

My Eating Plan: Consume the following foods within a 30 day time period:

  • Seven apples
  • Two giant servings of Kale
  • Broccoli for three days
  • One salmon, prepared for a king.
  • Raw¬†Sauerkraut OR Kim Chi for 15 out of 30 days
  • Fresh Kefir probiotic drink for 15 out of 30 days
  • Whey Protein after workouts
  • Leverage the power of¬†spices¬†to create my own lentil soup recipe
  • Two grapefruits
  • Quinoa 7 out of 30 days.
  • Seven cucumbers
  • Walnuts or almonds on 15 out of 30 days.
  • Be flexible, quality produce goes on sale regularly

STEP 3) Get Movin’

Even if exercise didn’t burn fat, and even if exercise didn’t boost metabolism, I would still do it for the mental health benefits. Exercise has been proven to help your body adapt to stress, reduce risk of depression, and keep you motivated to eat healthy.

Now we just have to get up and out.

My Workout:

Fitness Regime.

  1. Monday: Warm up with 10 minute treadmill, then Full Body Workout
  2. Thursday: Warm up with 10 minute dynamic drills, then Lower body workout, and flexibility
  3. Friday: Warm up with 10 minute treadmill, then Upper body workout, and flexibility

Wildcard: Add an additional FOUR days of cardio workouts, anytime in the next 30 days.

STEP 4) Track Progress, Adapt and Move Forward

Damn, I just ate a bucket of wild gooseberries with coconut ice cream and a bottle of gin. Can I forgive myself?

YES!

Recognize that we can’t be perfect. However, the ways in which we respond to “failures” can bring us closer to our goals than ever before.

Then, continue to hold yourself accountable by tracking progress.

My Method of Tracking Progress:

  • Take full body pictures in two week intervals in order to track progress.
  • Weigh myself at same time as pictures.

Assess: How much weigh did I lose? More importantly, am I preserving muscle and how much pure fat did I burn?

STEP 5) Mission Accomplished

I learn a new lesson every time I work on goals like this. More importantly, I create healthy habits that are valuable — so valuable that people pay me for my time.

Health is all about Lifestyle

Even though revenue can be generated from fitness expertise, my motivation is purely intrinsic. That is, I am driven from the inside. This is an indispensable trait that can be cultivated through mind-body connection and whole foods.

Prepare yourselves for the after-pictures. There will be abdominals.
