10 Mistakes Women Make When Trying To Get Lean (Part 2)

female-fat-loss-tipsA few weeks back I let you in on what I think are 5 of the top 10 mistakes commonly made when it comes to female fat loss. In case you missed it, they were:

  1. Training on an empty stomach
  2. Too much snacking instead of enough protein
  3. Never eating carbs
  4. ‘Holding out’
  5. Over-training

You can check the post out over here, or you can keep on reading – ’cause I finally remembered to share the rest of the article with you 🙂 … sorry, it’s been a bit of a roller-coaster of a week with my membership launch!

(more) truth about female fat loss …

So I’m sure that if you really really pushed me I could come up with more than 10 total common mistakes for fat loss, but it would probably get kind of overwhelming for both of us. So (for now at least) I’ll stick to the rest of my initial ‘top 10’ list.

Let me know if any of these resonate with you … or if perhaps you’d never thought of one or more of these points. It’s the stuff that works for me; you know I wouldn’t share it with you otherwise!

female fat loss mistake #6: coffee straight after training

Charles Poliquin talks about this over here, in his rather brutal but brilliant article on why women get fatter despite good intent. I guess his article was the inspiration for this one, although I only just thought of that 🙂 … it’s an old one but you simply must check it out. Charles’ words are based on depth of experience, and they stand the test of time!

In this case, the issue is that after training you want to decrease cortisol in order to enhance fat loss – jacking up cortisol (stress hormone) with coffee when it’s already high from training may very well have the reverse effect. Coffee before, organic protein after. That’s my motto.

female fat loss mistake #7: poor workout nutrition

Okay, this is a biggie. And kind of a pet peeve of mine. There’s just about nothing that makes me more disheartened than seeing a well-intentioned girl (or guy) knock back a gatorade or the like while training. Or after training.The short version? If you’re not a professional athlete/marathon runner/adventurer then don’t sugar-load your workouts! Protein and fat before, protein during (if anything), and protein after! Maybe some carbs after – but we’re not talking sugar.

Sugar = insulin = fat storage. Especially so when there is fructose present.

If you want to read more about workout nutrition, I’ve written about it over here.

female fat loss mistake #8: sweating the small stuff

I’m talking about the ‘final 10%’ type stuff. The tips and tricks. Stuff like using cinnamon on everything, taking icy cold showers, using lemon juice or vinegar before meals to lower blood sugar response. Heck, even taking supplements. Basically what I mean is – don’t focus on the ‘tweaking factors’ if you don’t have the big rocks (sleep, nutrition, training) in place!

By all means, add them in at the same time, but don’t get caught up in things that sound like magic keys to fat loss if you know deep down you should be focusing on getting enough protein and greens and hitting the gym once in a while!

female fat loss mistake #9: inefficient or under-training

This is really really simple, but for some reason all too easy to forget. Here it is – are you ready? If you’re not increasing the challenge in some way, you’re not going to increase the result! Also – if you really feel like you need some help and don’t know where to start, then get out there and do your research. Alternatively, hire a trainer, join a bootcamp, or perhaps even sign up for Woman Incredible Platinum Mentoring 🙂 … you get daily workouts right to your inbox!

female fat loss mistake #10: being hard on yourself all the time

I’m actually going to cut and paste something I’ve written about before when talking about myths of female fat loss … this is huge for driven women. Huge! You know I’m talking about you 🙂

“It’s safe to say that you put pretty much constant pressure on yourself to achieve. Not just when it comes to fat loss, but for your health and fitness in general and probably for pretty much every aspect of your life. At least all the stuff you care about (or think you should care about!). Am I right? Whilst striving to better yourself is admirable and certainly preferable to sitting around with no goals or aspirations, the constant pressure from within to always be more/better/different? I’m not such a fan. The truth is that if you are the kind of women who is reading this blog then you are doing enough. Maybe there’s room for improvement, but embrace the ups and downs as part of your journey rather than beating up on yourself for what you could be doing. It’s time to recognise what you are doing and let go of all the fat-storing stress hormones associated with that pressure-cooked mindset of yours!

Okay. That’s it. At least until I think of the next 10 🙂 … I could go on and on, but in the end it really does (I think) come down to treating your body as it was designed to be treated. Be nice to your body and it will be nice to you. It might still be a bumpy journey, and sure, you might have to pay the price of previous upsets, but you WILL move forward with time, patience, and a good dose of nutritional common sense.

Enjoy your journey, ’cause if you don’t then really – why bother? And remember,

Life is Now. Press Play.

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
