As we enter this holiday weekend, please remember:
1) one drink won’t cause you to gain weight
2) one ice cream cone won’t cause you to gain weight
3) one bad meal won’t cause you to gain weight
4) be sensible, don’t eat like you’ll never eat again
5) stay active and get back on track!
Everything in moderation!!!!

The Cable Face Pull is one of the most varied exercises. I’ve seen it done 100 different ways.

Here is our ideal way of performing this exercise(as long as shoulder range of motion allows it).

❇️First internally rotate your arms so that your Pinkies are towards the ceiling.

❇️Second start the pull and externally rotate your arms so that your thumbs are now toward your face. (Hands are now at ear height, like a double front biceps pose)

❇️Last and most important hold in the extended position for at least 3 seconds because that’s where all the magic happens.

While the face pull does work your upper back, it also works your rotator cuff. Holding for three seconds in the extended position is an isometric contraction of the cuff. Talk about shoulder stability! 🤔💪🏻

Hey hey everyone, Bri here with your weekly recipe! This week Peanut Butter Roll Ups.

I’m giving this one a 9 out of 10. They are great for a quick snack, easy to make and delicious. Just be careful, they can rack up calories pretty quickly, so make sure to measure your ingredients. A food scale is going to be the best option for measurement. The only fall back to this one is it doesn’t have much protein.

The apple didn’t turn brown when I packed it for work. It spent about 4-5 hours refrigerated before I ate it, so it held up nicely. This is one recipe you’d want to make the day of to avoid spoiling.

Disclaimer: please track ingredients for yourself! Based on the type of ingredients you pick and number of servings, it could change the nutritional info.

**Also, please be careful with this one! As you can see in the nutritional info in the pictures, this one doesn’t have much protein. This is one that will work very well for those of you who have extra calories to spend on it. It’ll also work well for days you are more active than others. For example, if you’re going on a long hike over the weekend, this will make a great option as oppose to a processed granola bar. With this recipe you can have full rein over what and how much of each ingredient goes into it. You can also sub out the peanut butter for PB2. **

*Always remember, your protein goals come first, this recipe is a filler or specific for a very active day*

Here’s how I made it:

Ingredients:
-flatbread
-peanut butter
-honey crisp apple
-cinnamon
-raisins
-granola

1. I used two tablespoons (33grams) of peanut on my flatbread, evenly spread. I cut about ¼ of my apple into match stick shapes and added on top.
2. I sprinkled some cinnamon on top, added half a single serving box of raisins and 10 grams of granola. See pictures below to see what brands I used.

“We are Professionals, not Magicians.” – James Pinola

This is a tough industry. We get to know you as well as we know our own families. We hear your secrets, your dreams, your insecurities, your goals. We want to help you with all of it, but we must remember, the magic wand only works in the movies.

After a particularly hard day, I was feeling a bit defeated and James reminded me that we aren’t magicians and we can’t make things happen just because we want them to. As professionals, we can teach you, guide you, and be there to coach you through things. What we can’t do is WANT it for you. We can’t do the work for you. We can’t make the sacrifices for you. That falls on YOU.

We are here to help. If you ever need anything, do not hesitate to ask. But remember, "bippity boppity boo" and a flick of the magic wand only worked for Cinderella😊

Until Saturday, make good choices.

Love Casa de Mandi and Justin! Thanks for the inspiration to work out.

It’s much more fun to watch someone else exercise than to do the moves myself - just saying.

Where are you with your Vision Board?

Since May is all about Personal Development, I couldn’t let the month pass without addressing the vision boards we made in January.

Research shows that people are GREAT at setting goals, but often fail to implement processes to achieve their goals.

Here’s a helpful tip to help you accomplish your goals: Reverse Engineering!

Set your goal.
- List the steps you need to take to achieve those goals
- Focus on creating the habits that will allow you to conquer the steps you outlined.
- Watch all your goals get smashed!

WARNING: If you think this is a quick process, you’ll be extremely disappointed. In an era of “I want it now,” so many people quit their goals if it doesn’t happen instantaneously. And then the New Year comes around and they set the same goals, lose focus, and the hamster wheel continues to spin around and around!

Here’s an example of how I am working one of my goals:
Goal: Buy a new car

Steps: Answer these questions

- Do I want an SUV or car?
- How much is my deposit?
- How much can I afford monthly?
- What features are important to me?
- Where will I get financing?
- Can I pay the car off sooner without penalty?
- How do the cars rate on Consumer Reports/Car and Driver/Edmund’s?
- Do I want a NEW car or a USED car? What’s the APR difference?
- How much do I have to save each month to afford the down payment?
- Based on the answers to these questions, I have come up with a short list of potential cars to go and test drive.

It’s taken 5 months to come up with the list, and probably another 3 months to complete the task, but the goal will be accomplished.

If you haven’t done this for YOUR goals, what are you waiting for????

Until Tuesday, make good choices!
