Revisited: " The Importance of Being Objective " By Charlotte Quillen

The Importance of Being Objective
                It’s something we learn to do early in life, a defense mechanism if you will; make excuses so that we feel better about ourselves, even though deep down we know what we have done is wrong. This can be as simple as rationalizing the lie you told your mom when you were seven because you didn’t want to get in trouble, or cheating on that exam in college because your professor was a douche bag who liked to put questions on the test that weren’t on the study guide. While no one likes to get in trouble, and maybe your opinion of your professor was accurate; lying and cheating are wrong.
Some people go through their lives rationalizing their mistakes and literally lying to themselves so often that they no longer have the ability to look at themselves objectively; they believe their own lie. What do I mean by this? Well, how many people do you know that are overweight, yet will point out the obesity in others, like they just can’t believe how someone could do that to their body? Or someone who just can’t understand why they aren’t reaching their fitness goals, yet you saw them check in at the Cheesecake Factory yesterday and two days before that they went out drinking and then last week they were at the Ice cream shop? I cannot count the number of examples I have just like the two I just listed. The reality is, if you point this out you are greeted with a barrage of accusations and denials, but never with that person having taken a step back and then taking a good, long, honest looked at his or her self before reacting defensively.
See, I can talk about this because I used to be that person. I have made more mistakes than I care to admit, and I used to be the one who tried her damndest to put the blame on other people, never taking responsibility for my action, nor doing a damn thing to change them. But then my life hit rock bottom so to speak, and instead of rolling over and letting it crush me, I decided to change. I decided to take that look at myself that I had been avoiding for so long, and ever since that moment I choose to be honest with myself.
No matter what you goal is you have to be able to look at yourself objectively. You must be able to put your emotions aside, and say “what do I need to work on? “, “What am I doing wrong? “, “What can I do to change it?” Every single day you must hold yourself accountable, because no one else is going to. You have to realize, you can’t give 50%, 75% or even 90% and expect to get consistent results, see consistent progress, or reach your long term goals. It just won’t happen. You have to go in with 100% commitment, and be able to take a step back when you’re ready to blame your trainer for your lack of results and say “Am I REALLY following this 100%?” and be HONEST. 100% means you do not deviate from your meal plan at all, you push yourself in the gym (this does not mean barely breaking a sweat, using the same weights for the past 6 weeks, or missing a workout), giving 100% in cardio (this mean it should be challenging, you should sweat your ass off or you aren’t going hard enough).  If you aren’t seeing results, I guarantee your answer is right there.
At www.fitnesspoynters.com, we give you the TOOLS you need to reach your goals. We can’t transfer our motivation and dedication to you, we can’t hold your hand and be with you every second of the day to make sure you stay on track, and we can’t take responsibility for you not being successful. What we can do is support you and offer advice. We show you the path you need to take, but it’s up to you and you alone to follow it. You have to take responsibility for your own mistakes, only then can you truly appreciate your success.
Tips for remaining objective:
1. Keep detailed logs, both for your workouts and meals. Write down EVERY single thing you put in your mouth, don’t omit something your embarrassed of. For your workouts, write down the weights you used, and your rest times. If your weights are always the same, and your rest times are longer than they should be, your results will suffer. Cardio logs are important too, write down the speed, miles, and time. Make note of your exertion levels.
2. Take responsibility for you actions! If you eat something you shouldn’t have, own up to it!
3. Stop making excuses! If you say or think something along these lines, “Well, I missed my workout today BUT it wasn’t my fault because…” just stop right there because that’s an excuse.
4.  Give yourself more credit. You made the choice to start this lifestyle change, and that’s something many people don’t have the courage to do.
5. Set realistic, challenging goals. Set a goal date, and a reward. And DO NOT BACK OUT for any reason. So, you had to travel for work unexpectedly, you moved, your sister had a birthday party… refer to #3.
6. Take control of your own life. Maybe your family, friends, spouse don’t support your lifestyle change. When this happens, this is a prime example of people who are unable to look at their self objectively. They can’t support your healthy changes because then they will start to feel bad about their unhealthy choices.

Whatever is on your plate got there because YOU said yes to it.
The struggle is 90% mental. You can do it, even if your mind is telling you that you can’t.
Motivation and dedication is a choice. You either want it or you don’t.
If it’s important to you, you will find a way, if not you’ll find an excuse.
Love yourself! Know you can do absolutely anything if you want it bad enough.

Taking Training to a New Level with Machine Supplements: Find out Why we Invested!

Good Evening, Morning or Afternoon,

We hope everyone is doing really well and if you are in the US, we hope that you are gearing up nicely for the upcoming Winter months.

I have recently invested in a supplement line and would like to spread the word to you guys and let you know how great these products are.

Sure I can sit here and spill you bs or lie to you but if you know me, that's not how I do things.
I'm legit with all things I do which leads me to tell you why I decided to jump on with Machine Supplements. Over the past few weeks I have done some "beta testing" of 2 products.
 * Machine Incinerator: Thermogenic Fat Burner

 * Muscle Machine: Pre/Intra workout Formula loaded to the max with beneficial ingredients.
     *So many great things are packed into these 2 products, continue reading to find out more!

Why Did I decide to invest:

 * I was at the Kentucky Muscle Bodybuilding show here in Kentucky and Healthworks Nutrition Kentucky was handing out samples, I took a pretty good amount of Incinerator and begin testing it out on the following Monday.
* I popped 1 Incinerator before my fasted cardio, within 20 mins I felt the effects , I was sweating more than normal and felt a huge increase in energy.
 * It seemed as though I continued to gain some energy as the next hour went by.
      I never did have a crash or jitters from the single tab( note/ the serving size is 2 tabs due to all the beneficial products inside the tabs)

The days I did fasted cardio, I continued to use and each day came out to be the same with the energy and the way it heated my body causing me to sweat more than normal.

* The past few days I have been using Incinerator with Muscle Machine which is a Pre or Intra workout product , packed to the max with beneficial ingredients.
* This product has so much in it that you can actually omit having to buy multiple supplements per month.
The List includes:

  • Testosterone Booster, Libido Enhancer:( Safe for Females as well)
  • Stimulants to fuel those workouts but to also assist in Fat Burning. 
  • Amino Acids: Taurine, l-leucine, l-Citruline Malate, L-Arganine, Beta Alanine, L-Valine
    L-Isoleucine ( All of which could be a replacement or your BCAA or EAA's)
  • Muscle Pump Formula: Special Formulation for this Product.
  • Creatine Monohydrate: Great for strength & size..

    Just with the listed above, that makes this a 4 in 1 product.
   Once I had both products, I decided to use a full scoop of Muscle Machine and 2 Incinerator tabs, I will say it wasn't a stupid idea because I had a ridiculous good training session, lots of energy, sick pumps, more energy so more weight was pushed,  my sets were stronger etc.
The only downside to this was , I was still up at midnight and pretty well hyped up.

So , the following day, I decided to use it as an Intra workout( Muscle Machine) 

I mixed 3/4 scoop in a shaker bottle and Took 1 Incinerator 15 mins before I got to the gym.

* I must note that I contemplated not going to the gym on this day, I was tired, and worn out from working and running around taking care of errands all morning.

Once I got to the gym, I had some good energy starting to kick in. The more I sipped the Muscle Machine during training, the more energy I seemed to pickup.
By the time I was half way through my training, my energy levels were through the roof, so much so that I decided to throw in Squats which were a scheduled part of this leg day.

After training was over, I still had a lot of energy, I still felt great, I never had any crash from either product.

Each day when I stacked the 2, I probably lost 2 lbs of sweat in the gym which is an awesome part of the stack, being able to heat your body up  to cause me to sweat like that and being able to push out extra sets or reps and never crash makes me look forward to seeing what kind of progression I can get from the stack.

After the 2nd training day of using both products, I plan on using Muscle Machine as Intra workout and only 3/4 of the full scoop plus 1/2 the serving size of Incinerator.

So that's a little rundown on why I decided to jump on board with these products .
I'll be listing the ingredients and serving size below.

I will have the products prices lower than the original retail price, this pricing is good for the month of November..

So if you're ready to save some money in the long run and get a product that does exactly what it claims to do.
I invite you to jump on board and up you  potential of progression.

               $62.99*Suggested Retail: $79.99

                      $42.00 Suggested *Retail: $49.99
Grab them while they Last... Limited Supply...   Go Ahead, Get Cut & Jacked!

My Self Motivation Journey: 8 Weeks to Shredded: Episode 1 & 2

There are times when it's hard to find the motivation to stay driven, determined & disciplined. I fell into this rut early this year after doing a bulk over the winter, I ended up hating going to the gym, I couldn't find it in me to eat as clean as I needed in order to get lean gain.

So with having those troubles, I had to find something that would motivate me to put in all the work required to get my body back to the level I have always lived at, that level being very lean, walking around daily with a low bodyfat percentage.

The only thing I could think of that would Drive me to this level again would be to do this video series, documenting 8 weeks of work , I am now almost 3 weeks in and everything is going really really well, the Drive, Discipline & Determination have all returned. Follow my journey over the remaining 5 weeks and lets see where I can end up at the end.
New videos coming the weekend over August 6, 2016. Episode 1 Episode 2

Fitness Tips to Help Improve your Health.

Here's another weightloss/ better health tip.
Instead of thinking you can lose weight by eating 1-2 times a day, try eating 4-6 times a day. Eating 1-2 times a day will cause your body to store more fats as its an internal protection method. Those foods you take in 1-2 times a day will get stored in fat cells causing you to gain more weight, this is a huge problem with people who are overweight, they only eat 1-2 times a day.
If you get active and you are eating 1-2 times a day, sure you will lose weight but you will lose muscle also as your body can still hold that fat.

The biggest issue here is people do this often and they "YOYO diet, therefore leading to chances of really destroying the thyroid.

Eating 4-5 times a day spikes your metabolism , a spiked metabolism will lead to your body burning fat even when your Heart rate isn't elevated.
So , try getting up 15 mins early each day and getting in some kind of work to raise that Heart rate and then try the 4-6 meal a day approach of healthier food options and watch what happens in the next couple weeks.

Fitness Tips: Things to help you Improve your help..

Morning, Afternoon or Evening,

I will be posting a few Fitness tips over over the next few days or maybe even weeks all depending on the feedback we get and if this is helping anyone out.

Here's a little something to think on today if you are someone who is considering trying to better your Health.
*Wake up 15 mins early every morning, do some kind of cardio, it can be anything that will increase your Heart rate.
* A key while doing this is to not drink sugar and fat loaded things, simply have some water or if you know about supplements, a good tasting bcaa will be something of quality, if not the bcaa, then have some MIO or similar.

That's a simple fact that will help you be on your way to better health and this will also make you feel better for the rest of the day.
Sure the 15 mins of sleep you sacrificed will suck the 1st 4-5 days but after that , your body will adapt and it will be no problem. ‪#‎fitnesspoynters‬ fact of the day.
