Podcast Episode 10: A conversation with Sally Matterson about success, fitness, and weight loss

Let’s welcome Sally Matterson, one of Sidney’s top body transformers and trainers.

Interview with Sally MattersonShe trains like I’ve never seen a woman train before. We’re going to have a bit of a chat on nutrition, training, and fat loss for busy moms.

There’s a real need for people to learn how to train smarter, not necessarily harder. We need someone who’s tried it all and know what’s working and what’s not.

There are a lot of women who are trying to get in shape after a baby. So, how do we fit it in with a baby and a busy life? It starts with what you can do before the baby. You need to get back to where you were, training, getting your heart rate up. You need to burn fat, but you also need to get stronger. Some people think that cardio is the secret. You want to have the nutritional side right. Getting it right means that you can train and strengthen your muscles. People who get nutrition don’t have to spend hours and hours doing cardio.

Most people have very high cortisol levels. It’s a stress hormone. Doing too much cardio elevates the cortisol even more. If you’re training well with weights, you can raise your heart rate and lower the cortisol at the same time. You don’t need to add in three cardio sessions too. For women who are used to training hard and sweating, you don’t need to do cardio to really get worn out in the gym. If you’re doing it right, you can use weights and get as tired as in a cardio session.

With your nutrition, you don’t need to be perfect. You can indulge one day a week and get a taste of the foods you really like. Maybe it’s something high-carb or something with more dairy, but you don’t have to eliminate it all together from your diet. Generally, I recommend that this be at night. I’ve found that if people start their day with a “cheat meal,” it tends to go into the next one and the next. This isn’t forever. You can do it for six weeks to get your body to reset and then add back in what you’ve eliminated slowly. You don’t have to count calories or weigh food. For the most part, I’m a big fan of adding in more protein. I don’t think that most women (or even some men), eat enough.

So, I give people a protein target and that along with good carbohydrates and good fats, that’s where I come from. As long as you hit your protein target, you’ll find that you naturally eat less of the carbohydrates and fats. As long as you get your protein in, the rest will take care of itself.

If there’s one thing that people need to know is that training your legs will burn a lot of fat. Never skip leg day. If you train your legs, with compound exercises, you’ll naturally get fitter. Posture and everything return back to your leg muscles. You need to train the rest of your body to keep in proportion, too, but legs are very important.

Dealing with lack of motivation is hard for a lot of women. To do that, you need to find a greater purpose to your training. When you’re lean, you feel better about yourself. Once you’re done with your training, you’ll be a better wife, sister, or mother. That’s a higher purpose. Finding your real why isn’t just about you being in shape, but it’s about providing tools for the greater good.

It doesn’t matter how much you know. It’s great to jump in and do something structured that someone else has created. It’s great to do something that you don’t have to think about. Sally’s
program is one that I highly recommend. You keep moving; you don’t have to stop and think about it. If you love training and are willing to work hard, this is the program for you.

Tell everyone you’re doing it to keep you accountable. It’s great to be strong and be able to have control of what you’re eating and doing. I love being strong as a female. It helps you feel a lot better about yourself.

Check out her extreme shredder program as well.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.

All in on madness.
All in on crazy.
All in on chaos.
All in on the TRUE epic awesome ridiculousness and too much-ness of YOU.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
