Changing The negative Thoughts that in prison us in our own minds..

Our Mind is a powerful Tool, often enough we can be trapped in our own prison with no way out, constantly battling with our known self disruptive thoughts.
We can be our own worst nightmare. gmfitness-logo-3
Listening to that voice inside our head that is constantly being negative and knocking us down.
How do we change that voice and escape the prison that we have put ourselves in to.
If we do not decide to change our thought pattern, then our thoughts will always remain the same.
Ways to Help you change your current thought pattern.
Start to become aware of the way you think and feel, be open to listening to your body when you know what triggers a bad negative thought, write that trigger down.
Try to always take walks during the day especially when the sun is shining to  boost those happy hormones. During the winter months when its dark wet and windy this can often lead to a feeling of darkness. To combat this schedule your walk into your diary regardless of the weather, it is important to break the negative routine that you are currently following.
Eat a balanced diet as a balanced diet has an effect on the way we feel.
Umming and ahhing here.. If you want to change, the first step to change must come from within you.
Surround yourself with positive people, people that have goals and ambitions, say good bye to the people drainers.
Book yourself in for weekly training sessions, Training equals endorphin's= endorphin's equal happy hormones, happy hormones equal a positive way of thinking. If you have an appointment you are less likely to cancel.
Set your self weekly smart goals, as humans we like to be constantly achieving goals, without personal achievements being set, we can often feel lost and low.
Drink plenty of water and green tea throughout the day, staying hydrated has positive effects on your bowel movements.
Laugh, Watch a funny movie, play a childish game, bake some cakes, Break your day to day routine and set out some out to have a good old giggle.

Here at GM-Fitness we are believers in stepping out of your comfort zone,
if you are not happy about something only you are responsible for changing it.

Beat The Christmas Bulge with GM-Fitness


Beat The Christmas Bulge With GM-Fitness

It is a fantastic time of year.      GM-Fitness christmas-2015
Time For Family, Friends, Fitness, Food and Alcohol.
Christmas Cakes, Christmas Pies, Christmas Puddings, FUN, Laughter and hopefully you stay focused with lifting.
A great time for lights, decorations, parties and celebration, Often a hard time to stay on track with your fitness regime, but it does not have to be that way.
With Christmas biscuits at the office, Christmas cakes at your friends house, Wine and  cookies everywhere you look, it can sometimes be overwhelming to say no, the word moderation goes out the window and over indulgence here we come.
Let me tell you a little something this is NORMAL. Do not beat yourself up over it. We are all of course human, and need to let our hair down at some point in the year, so let it be Christmas.
One afternoon of over indulgence does not mean we have to carry it on the next day. what it means is, yesterday was yesterday so move on forget about it, and carry on eating your normal healthy food.
The trick here is your mind set, if we can let go of one day and not let it run in to two, three or four days of  consecutive over indulgence, Then we should  hopefully not pile on to many pounds.Please note that to put on a pound of fat you must consume 3500 extra calories on top of your normal daily calorie intake.

What can we do to ease the weight gain over Christmas?
Stick to your fitness routine. Make No Excuses why you can not make a session.
Have a positive mind set. If you binge one day, let it go and remember tomorrow is the start of a new day.
Eat only if your hungry, Do not eat just for the sake of it we are not human dust bins.
Do Not skip breakfast.
Make time for daily walks.
If you drink one day, try to have a non drinking day the next.
Stand in front of the mirror naked and ask yourself are you happy with what you see.
Opt for clear spirits.
Have a positive mind set.
Be part of a fitness group, where you share your daily food intake and have the support of like minded people.
Try not to cave in to peer pressure often enough your friends pressure you in to one more drink, one more cake because they feel guilty for not being able to take control of what are they consuming, by you over eating ,over drinking it makes them feel better, haha they are not the only ones now gaining more junk in their trunks. You are joining their club.

Keep following us.
we will be posting daily blogs from Monday 28th November about how we GM-Fitness stay on track over this festively Fit Season.
