How to Eat Healthy When You Have No Time!

I don’t have time to eat healthy! By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Lately I have been hearing this issue come up with my clients, friends, and family. People who want to improve their nutrition, but feel like they don’t have time to prepare healthy meals when our society has become overrun with fast processed options that seem more convenient. Our lives seem to get busier and busier each year. I know mine does, I thought I was a busy guy THEN my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world this past year! Talk about a busy world immediately getting a little more crowded. Yet, throughout it all I have been able to use a few steps to continue my healthy eating routine. (I didn’t even gain sympathy weight when my wife was pregnant. For all the Dads out there, you know how challenging this can be!) First, you have to make ‘Eating Clean’…

How to Cheat On Your Diet & Stay Lean For More Energy

By Jimmy Hays Nelson “Did you feel guilty eating that?!?” This is a question that has been stuck in my head. It came in the form of a comment on my Facebook Page when I posted a picture of my cheat meal one week. The admittance that I cheat on my diet like everyone else wasn’t a huge deal, but the issue of guilt associated with rewarding oneself opened the door to an issue that goes beyond goals and discipline. I allow myself one cheat meal a week where I can eat and drink whatever I want. A whole rack of ribs with french fries???? If the mood strikes me…absolutely! That meal is something I now look forward to each week, and I enjoy every last morsel, but that hasn’t always been the case. As a person with a 100 pound weight loss story, the history of my relationship with…

How a Busy Working Mom Finds Time for Herself, Family, Eating Healthy and Losing Weight

In the words of Jesse Spanno…”There’s Never Any Time!!!!!!!” by Kelly Nelson “How do you do it?” That’s a question that I get a lot.  I am a full time working Mom who has managed to get rid of her baby weight, find time for workouts, eating right, family time and working as a Beachbody Coach, but balance it all out with date nights and cheat meals! I have to say that it’s not easy and it’s something that I struggle with on a daily basis.   Asher, our precious angel, turned one in February and the past year has been a year of challenges, change and growth (but not on my waistline!) With the overwhelming responsibilities that come along with being a new Mom, it’s often easy to put ourselves on the back burner and just focus on the rest of the family.  I was very guilty of that….
