Fast Workout Advice To Keep You Feeling Fit And Looking Fabulous

Plan For A Holiday Body That You’re Proud Of Regular Mini-Workouts

This is the third article in the series ‘How To Be In Great Shape For The Holidays’

How are your Christmas preparations going? Feeling calm and ready? You do know you’ve only got two weeks to go, don’t you?

When it comes to gift shopping and food preparation, at least you can rest assured that it will be pretty much over come December 26. There’ll be nothing to show for the craziness of this month except for endless left-over food, and a garbage bin full of wrapping paper. A few hours of domestic attention should take care of any signs that Christmas even occurred.

Except, of course, for the damage to your body. Are you on track to feel and look your best post-Christmas, or are you eating, drinking, and merry-making your way from party to party, convinced that if you don’t really think about it then you’ll somehow escape the detriment of holiday excess?

It’s not too late. If you start today you can save your waistline and your health and still enjoy the holiday season. Mini-workouts are a great way to stay on track with your exercise regime at any busy time of year, but they’re particularly useful throughout December and January. After all, if you’re anything like me you’ll want to make the most of the fun and frivolity, but I’ll bet you also want to avoid losing everything you’ve worked so hard for leading up till now. Ps – even if you’re not currently in a regular exercise routine, you can start using mini-workouts as a great way of creating that habit.

Before I get down to it, here are the links for the previous two articles in this series. I’d suggest going back over them if you’re truly serious about being in great shape this holiday season:

How To Be In Great Shape Over The Holidays – Part Two

These two articles will teach you how to quickly assess your current physical state and health, and how to decide what matters most to you and set useful goals for the next 4-6 weeks.

Mini-Workouts To Help You Create Your Body Incredible This Holiday Season

It’s Christmas. You’re busy. We all are. But I’ll bet you don’t want to let everything you’ve worked hard for go to waste. Whether it’s your health, your fitness, or your waistline, it’s worth making an effort to stay on track with your exercise, and your Body Incredible. Don’t make excuses, don’t claim you didn’t have time, because there is a solution. And it’s a pretty simple one. It’s about knowing how to burn fat, increase your basal metabolic rate (BMR), and sculpt your body all at the same time – all the while staying on top of work, family and Christmas shopping! Here’s how:

  • Focus On Weight Training. Now is not the time to be dilly-dallying around on the elliptical machine or the treadmill. The most efficient way to train for looking and feeling great this Christmas is resistance training. Workout out with weights will increase lean muscle which will lift your BMR and help you to release stored body fat.
  • Rest Is For The Wicked. Save the social training for the new year. Rather than the old ‘3 sets of 10’, choose 3-4 multi-joint exercises and perform them back to back, with no rest between sets. Go right back to the first exercise, and repeat at least 3 times. This is one of the most effective ways of training hard in under 10 minutes, and – combined with a healthy eating plan – really can have you looking lean and feeling great in a matter of weeks. Never say you’re too busy to exercise, just make the most of the time you’ve got.
  • Big Movement Matters. While it might be nice to take your time polishing your guns during the year, it’s a last ditch effort at this time of year, and will not really impact your overall shape. Choose big movements that use several joints, and multiple muscles. This is the best way to shape up fast as you tone your muscles and burn fat. It will also cause your heart rate to elevate higher than most cardio workouts. Some of my favorite big movements are squats, lunges, push-ups, pull-ups, and wood chops.
  • Functional Exercise vs Machines. Machines might be easy to use, but they’re nowhere near as effective as functional exercise. Functional exercise involves using your body in a variety of movements – replicating how our bodies are designed to move. It works you harder, uses more muscles, forces your core to get involved, burns more fat, and it’s definitely more fun. If you’re not sure what functional exercise is, check out this article.
  • Every Little Bit Counts. Incidental exercise really does count. I remember spending a couple of weeks two years back without my car. I must have pounded the pavement for a total of 90 extra minutes each day, even if it was all in bits and pieces. I’ve never been so lean. 90 minutes is a lot, and I’m not suggesting you trek into town if you really don’t have the time. But Christmas parking is a nightmare anyway, so why not park a little further away, or walk when you can? Why not even add in the odd sprint for a block here and there. Even if you are carrying a heavy backpack! Every few seconds here and there where you can elevate your heart rate forces your muscles to strengthen and adapt, and your BMR to raise. Who knows – maybe this concept will even motivate you to get involved in that family football game come December 25th!

We’re in the final countdown now. If you’re not already filling every spare minute with Christmas parties or endless frustrating shopping expeditions, then you soon will be. There is no time to lose and every day really does count – so no more going through the motions of a daily walk or a cruisy cardio session at the gym. If you’ve been neglecting your exercise, well that’s too bad, but it’s not too late. I’m sure you can find a spare 10-minutes or so somewhere in your day – if it’s truly important to you. Can’t you?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

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.
