Normally there’s a lot of various types of lifestylechanges that are gonna have to happen,’ make what you’re currently doing got you to whereyou’re at right now, so to get to the new sit we’re gonna have to change a whole lotof things, probably.Tell me what you do for work. Dianne: I am a servicing coordinator at anin-flight entertainment company. Prior to that, I was at a profession where I wasdoing like five people’s chores at once, which I consider led up to where I am today. Holly: That was traumatic, it sounds like? Dianne: Yes, exceedingly. Holly: And did you … So did you gain atweight at previous hassle, in that season? Dianne: Yeah. Holly: Okay. Dianne: I was at work long hours. I never got to the gym. I was just snacking whatever was convenientaround and lots of sugareds to keep the energy up, and then of course there’s the sound, and then you precisely continue to eat sweeteneds, so.Holly: Do you have any stings, seam questions, muscle questions, any type of current or previous pain that I should know about? Dianne: I do have stung in my left knee. I went to a chiropractor, and we found outthat I have minor scoliosis that I various kinds of … Yeah. Holly: Okay. Dianne: So, and then through all the X-rayswe also know very well that my left trendy is a little bit higher than my title, so that could belike … Everything on my left side seems to ache a little bit more. Holly: Tighter. Okay. Dianne: But I do have a history of heart diseasein my family. My grandfather died when[ inaudible 00:01: 59] early 50 s from coronary failure. And then I time found out that my dad had, recently had triple bypass surgery.Emergency triple bypass surgery while he wason vacation, so that was really hard. And then my momma has diabetes, which has alsotriggered heart disease for her, so she’s going through some of her surgeries as well. Holly: Okay. Is that a concern that you have for yourself? Dianne: Yeah, I unquestionably … I want to lookgreat for the marriage. Initially, that’s really what stirs me wantto do this, but sitting long and hard and thinking about it, I really want to make a better, healthier lifestyle for myself. I want to start to take care of my mas. Holly: What about what is your current activitylevel? I know patently you’re sitting at a deskall day, so you’re not moving around a whole lot outside of work.Are you moving much? Dianne: Not truly. I step the dog every day, kind of pretty muchevery day when I get home from creation, and that’s usually time a immediate walk around the apartment. Holly: If you’ve got the time, you can alwaysmake a way. If it’s their own priorities, you can always fit itin, whether it’s getting up before office, coming your workout in after exertion, taking the dogfor a run instead of only a saunter, but we’ll obviously work on that and find some waysthat you can implement in time to work out.Even if you just got a short window, there’sthings that you can do. So definitely , no condones. So, be said about what your diet looks likeright now, various kinds of a normal day of eating for you. Dianne: I study I do pretty well with breakfast. I’d say my one disgrace with my morning routineis I generally do about two to three beakers of chocolate to wake up, which probably isn’t enormous. I need to prep my meat more, because I’lljust go out and get what’s around. I do Chipotle a lot, I do Subway a lot. Sometimes I’ll time frozen dinners a lot,’ causeit’s handy and easy. But where I get myself into trouble is atnight, because my groom-to-be and I, we done a lot of takeout. And, yeah, it’s not good. Holly: No, that’s not good. Those are just full of so much sugar, sodium, MSG, quantities of calories that you often don’t realize that you’re consuming.So if we can get you in a procedure of buyingyour dinners, prepping your snacks, having them ready to go so that you don’t exactly have togo out and get whatever when you’re starving, that’s gonna make a huge difference. So that’s gonna become a really importantpart of this, and we’ll talk more about that last-minute, but we’ll certainly get into whattypes of foods you need to eat, how to prep your food, how to count your calories andwatch everything that you’re eating so that it’s not just a big guessing game as to whatyou’re eating but you really know what you’re put in your body, and to make sure thatyou’re position in foods that are healthful and that are gonna give you energy and preventthose clangs or foreclose that waking up in the morning and needing three bowls of coffee, things that will give you power and help you feel good all the time.That’s gonna be the most important part ofthis. Although the workouts are super importantin get physically in shape and all that is important, but nutrition is about to be 70,80% of your make, so it’s gonna be very imperative that you convert the highway you’reeating, that we get rid of nutrients in your residence that aren’t helping you out, that we get ridof the ice cream. Why else is this important to you? The period after your wedding you’re gonna bedone. I’m assuming you don’t want to put on back2 0, 30 pounds, so why does it actually matter to you to lose weight? Dianne: I imagine feeling pleasant in myown skin. It’s just … That intensity rank happening there. I miss merely … I want to feel comfortablein my robes. I want to look good and feeling all right, and ultimatelyI think if you feel good inside, you’ll good outside because you’ll put in that extra. But right now I’m just kind of not reallycaring too much, and I don’t want to not care.Like, Dave and I, my groom-to-be and I, we haveplans to have minors after … We have a kid plan after the marry, so I just imagineonce children are in the picture, I require … I don’t want to be that mom’s that draggingherself. I want to be there for my babies, and especiallywith the heart disease running in my family, it’s just … I want to be there for the longterm, so. Holly: Emphatically. So as we go through these next few monthsof training, I want you to keep those things in mind.When we’re working out and you’re needingto push yourself, I want you to remind yourself of how you want to feel, how you want to look, how you want to be with your minors. And when you don’t want to get up and go tothe gym, or you don’t want to leave job and have to go to the gym, to remind yourselfof those motivating points that you have. The rationalizations beyond today, right now, how youfeel but what the hell are you eventually require, that’s really gonna help keep you going through thesefew months,’ cause you’re gonna reached roadblocks. You’re gonna punch days when soul get hard-handed, it gets traumatic, you don’t want to work out, you’re tired, and you’re gonna need somethingto cause you and to push you through those dates. So perhaps you demand kept them on your wall somewhere, you know, sticky observes around the office, in your vehicle, and merely various kinds of remind yourselfwhat you’re trying to achieve and what Fit for Wedding really is about even beyond thewedding and the somewhat dress and the pictures and all that.Dianne: Right. Holly: All liberty, so we’re moving now intothe physical evaluation for Dianne, and this is a really important thing that I suggestthat anyone do if you’re starting out on a exercising platform, even if you’ve been in aworkout curriculum for a very long time. Almost any gym will do this for you for free. So you can go in and ask for an assessment, and what they’ll do is pretty much the same things that I’m gonna reveal you with Dianne. It’s some sort of assessment of your strength, maybeyour opennes, your cardio capacity, and they’ll kind of analyze how you’re body works.Those are really helpful so that you can makesure that you do everything with suitable form. You can learn maybe some tight areas thatyou have on your person, some strong the regions and things that need improvement, find out whereyour cardio capacity is, find out what your body fat and your the measures and[ inaudible0 0:08: 16] the picture is. So that’ll help you kind of launch you up forsuccess in a future platform, and then you have a way to measure how you’re doing andif you’re progressing.You can go back and retest on all those thingsand make sure that you’re getting better . …[ inaudible 00:08: 29] shoulders. On your toes. Pull your bellybutton in close-fisted. Engage that. Squeeze your glutes. Good job. Got 36 seconds. Not bad , not bad . … season this for a minute and see how manypush-ups that you can get in a minute. Dianne: Okay. Holly: I don’t necessarily expect you to goa full minute.It’s okay. Most parties get to maybe 10, 11 if we’re lucky, so don’t worry. It’s basically just seeing how many you cando. Dianne: Okay. Holly: So what I’m gonna have you do, I’mgonna sure they’re proper push-up form. So you’re gonna come down on your knees, handsoutside the mat, so you’ve various kinds of came this nice wide angle, kind of like a field postwith your limbs. So arms are at 90 magnitudes. Keep your core participated. Exactly like the boards, you want to keep thattight.And then when you do the push-up, I want yourwhole body to move together. So you’re moving down towards the mat, bringingyour dresser down, and pulping back up. What I don’t want to see is butt up in theair and dresser down. Okay? A parcel of parties do that. So I demand everything moving together all theway down to ground, and then back up. Okay? Got any more? 13 … Okay. Hey, that was close. That was about 45 seconds. Dianne: Oh. Holly: Not bad, 12 push-ups. Good job. You got some pretty good strength. Good form. So last-place thing I’m gonna are you do strength-wiseis a squat. So this is just gonna help me see how yourbody is working, what’s maybe moving in directions it shouldn’t be and make sure everything looksokay. So the diddly-squat is a very big, important campaign, and we’ll be doing a lot of those in the future, so this will kind of facilitate me estimate some tightareas, shaky localities, things to work on.All right, so what I’m gonna have you do isstand with your feet merely a bit wider than hip-distance apart, arms straight up in theair, core tight just like the board and the push-up that we did, so that’s committed thewhole season. Then what you’re gonna do is squat down andback up, as low as you comfortably can. Maybe thighs travel parallel to the floor, theydon’t inevitably have to. And I’m just gonna have you do a few of those. You don’t have to race it. Take your time. And I’m just gonna kind of walk around yourbody and mention what I’m seeing.So simply retain doing a couple for me while Iwatch you. Dianne: Okay. Holly: Nice job. You made it a mile. You didn’t die. You didn’t even stop. That was awesome. So you got about 16:23, looks like, is yourtime. That’s good. Dianne: Yeah. Holly: That’s not bad at all for somebodywho hasn’t been running in a while and working out. So good task, you uttered it. Okay. All freedom, Dianne, so we’ve got your measurementsnow, and that will serve as a good baseline. We’ll check those measurings every few weeksand see how you’re doing. And ideally, of course, we’ll interpret those numberscontinue to drop down. Dianne: Okay. Holly: And then we’ve got your figure fat. So I calculated out those crowds that I tookthose amounts from, and your body obesity is about 32%, so it’s definitely a littleon the high aim. I’d like to see that you remove that down toabout 26%, even lower if possible. 24, 25, 26 would be amazing. That would put you in a much healthier series, so we’re gonna work towards that over the next few months as your heavines comes downalso on the scale.Dianne: Okay. Holly: Now, weight-wise, you’ve got about2 0 pounds to lose, perhaps 30. 30 is sort of the ideal. Dianne: The want numeral. Holly: Yes, the dream. But 20 pounds is what we’re kind of shootingfor. So what I actually want you to do is focuson hitting that 20 -pound mark by November. So although your wedding’s in November, Iwant you to touched that multitude before then. So that’s gonna be five pounds a few months, whichis doable. As long as you’re getting in your workoutsand you’re doing your nutrition right and your snack prep and everything, you shouldbe able to do five pounds in a few months. Dianne: Okay. Holly: All title, and then that’ll yield usNovember for perhaps lose a couple extra pounds, maybe get a little bit closer to that 30 orto even just really focus on toning up your weapons that you’re gonna see in your dress andcinching in the waist and just sort of working on building some muscle and kind of sculptingyour figure only a little bit more. Rather than just drop-off force, add a littlebit more shape to it.Dianne: Okay. Holly: So that’s how I want these next fewmonths to go. Do you think you can do that? Dianne: I can do that. Holly: Okay. I know you can do that. Dianne: I will do that. Holly: Good. That’s what I like to hear. Dianne: Okay. Yes. So today was tough. It was a real eye-opening experience, I imply, only in its entirety. Sitting there and genuinely talking about whereI was at and with my fitness grade and the nutrients that you’re eating, it’s just … Itreally woke me up a little bit,’ effect during the day when you’re doing it, you’re justdoing it, and when you sit down and think about it, it’s like, “Wow, that’s really whatI’m put into my figure. That’s really what I’m doing to myself.” And then as we progressed into do the measurementsand the assessments … Yeah, 32% body overweight is not really good to hear, so definitelythat’s gonna cause me to get that amount down and precisely work on tightening everythingup and time feeling better in my own mas. So I’m really excited, but it was a reallytough one, extremely when Holly was researching me on my planks and my squats and, yeah, thatwas really hard to hold it for, what was it, like 20 seconds? Yeah.Not a good feeling, but you know what? When you’re feeling this down, there’s reallynowhere to go but up, so I’m provoked and motivated to better how I feel about myself, so herewe go. Holly: You just got to see Dianne’s firststep into her weight loss journey, but we want to leave you with some supportive tips aswell so that you can also take your step into your weight loss journey. So three of my biggest gratuities for you are these: one, when you’re starting to lose weight, ask yourself one of the questions that I askedDianne, which was what’s the reason behind wanting to lose weight? Besides just looking good, what really isyour motivation? Is it confidence? Is it being there for your family? Is it anything else that you can think of? Anything that may be triggering that desireto look better? What’s the reason for that? If you can think of that, restrain those littlemotivators somewhere.Put them on a Post-it note or threw them inyour phone to remind you, to keep you caused when things get hard-boiled. Two, “re going away” and get a fitness assessment. Have a professional help you out and lookat what you’re doing well, maybe where some of your persuasiveness are and some of your weaknessesare, so that they can help to guide you into a weight loss program and give you some tipsthat you can use. And then third, incorporate something likea plank. One of the things that we calibrated was a plank, and boards are a great exercise. That’s a great channel that you can start is justby testing that out. See how long you can hold a timber for, keepingthat really flat organization, a strong core. See how long you can hold it, and try to doit every single day and improve your amounts. That’s one easy pace that you can take afterthis episode to start to improve your fitness.
