Bite-Sized Breakdown: "Craving Control" | 7 Helpful Tips When Willpower Fails

Have you ever eaten certain foods, even when you didn't want to?

That's an interesting question and one that I guess, almost all of us would say YES to. So what gives? Why do we give in? Well, first off it's important to understand the vast chasm between "want to" and "easy to". But, that is a discussion for a different day. It's also important to note, that I'm all for living lean, enjoying ourselves and indulging in the delectable delights that "treat meals" have to offer. This however, is about those times when we over-indulge, even when everything inside of us is telling us not to.

Mindset Monday: Your "Very Best" is more than what you think

 Your coaches at Pure Form PFT may once in a while may say "Just give me your best, Your Very Best"! But what does that mean?

Your very best is not about what you weigh or some arbitrary number on the scale! It's not what people think about you or even how "good" you do at the gym.

All we want is your best! If you give us your Very Best Every Time… You won't fail, You'll never fail! Because you will never fail unless you quit.
