Weekly Coach Check-In: March 18th, 2012

Hey TeamInternallyFit,

Spring is fast approaching; along with Spring Break for all the young folks out there (that includes me because I’m a teacher! Yes its o.k. for you to be jealous).  It’s also the time of year when everyone around you all of a sudden starts to feel the pressure of impending warmer weather and a need to lose the weight they’ve been conveniently hiding under the thick winter clothes for the past several months. 

What a great time for all of you to encourage them, point them to what’s working for you, and help them get started.  Getting started is the hardest part because most people who are out of shape don’t know where to begin.  I recently talked to a friend of mine who wants to lose weight but is afraid of how it’s going to affect him and his family, duh, that’s the point!  Do it for you, do it for your family.  There is nothing wrong with improving your health and fitness and bringing your family with you on the journey.

If you know someone like this help them get a starting point.  Tell them you will help.  If you can point them to a starting point, they can find success.  Tell them about the workout programs that are working for you, offer to hold them accountable; tell them about TeamInternallyFit and the nutrition tips and how we are here to support them.  GET THEM GOING!  They will thank you for it!  And it will keep you going harder too if you have people looking to you for motivation!

New on this week:

1.) Heart Disease: This is a great article written by a heart surgeon of 25 years.  Read to find out how to reduce your risk of heart disease.

2.) Meat Eater:  I grew up on meat, but recently I’ve done a lot of research on the effects of meat on your body.  This article suggests that red meat can lead to certain types of cancer, heart disease, etc.

3.) Excuse Busters: This article outlines 5 of the biggest excuses and how exercise and a little sweat can help solve.

Weekly Health Tip:

Cashews are a good source of monounsaturated fat (healthy fat) and magnesium, nutrients that can improve cardiovascular health and help to manage type 2 diabetes.  Because cashews contain the mineral zinc, they can also help maintain healthy eyes, hair, and skin.  Like other nuts, cashews should be eaten in moderation since they’re calorie-dense (stick with just one handful of nuts per day).


And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them. Click the share links below them and share them on FB, twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow TeamInternallyFit!

2) Also, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site,, (If you buy from the plain Beachbody site I get no credit). It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it!

Food, Faith and Fitness
