Needier than a baker at 3AM

Sidney Wilson fitness article

Guys just don’t get, most of the time

Women do this and it holds them back

It has everything to do with your confidence

When I was younger I was a hopelessly lost cause (or so I thought) when it cam to the dating department

A sloppy sack of submissiveness

Always cowering down to acquiesce every request from both men and unfortunately women

Trying to get everyone to like me

Especially trying to get the attention of the ladies

Which any female will tell you it’s the number one turn off

One day, I can’t even remember what did it, I just didn’t care anymore

I went about my business, getting things done, learning about things that I should have pay attention to for a better life.

I got into working out, hitting the gym with a focus of a mad scientist

Over time, the ladies started to notice – and I still didn’t care

Keeping my focus and staying consistent… mostly because I didn’t believe them girls were really interested anyway

Day by Day, workout to workout, meal by meal, gallon of water to gallon of water, nothing was going to get my attention other than my mission

A mission of me, my goals, not theirs

Little by little, someone got my attention, not by much but, I did say hi

Then came a smile, a while later even a decent conversation – still I didn’t care much, I was being “nice”

…and it drove her nutz!

She couldn’t get herself to just let me get my workouts in.

Needing that dough like a baker at 3AM getting the bread ready

Kind of a nag really, but she was friendly and I liked her way of lighting up when she saw me

I’m really not a dyck, I’m a pretty humble guy and I genuinely like people

No point in painting a picture like I’m not a man, she was fine as hell

But man, did she come across as needy, kind of sad

One day she said something I used to say when I was just as needy

It rattled my brain for a bit – she was just like how I had been, a sad sack

With all that she was an 11, I wasn’t into her that way

I decided to let my guard down and be more friendly

We talked about life, training, family friend and eventually relationships

All in attempt to help her be independent of what I thought of her

On she went chipping away at my, I don’t care armor

As smart as she was, she taught me a few thing by pointing out how she looked at things from a different view point

Intelligent conversations always gets me engaged

Some I agreed with, others not so much

I voiced my option on a topic and she did NOT like it at all

She went full monster on me, attacking me with fresh new words

It was nothing personal, it wasn’t even directed towards her

I felt bad and tried to explain myself in a desperate attempt to win her favor and not loose a new friendship

Boy was I wrong

I went right back to being needy

The very thing I was trying to help her overcome

Trying to get her to like me again

It wasn’t a bad thing

I should have know better, I did know better

I didn’t need her approval, nor did I set out looking for her approval that

I’m a good person

I love myself

I love being fit

I definitely love the results of my dedication it’s had on me, my body and inspire other people to love themselves

Unfortunately in life you will at some point feel the needy creep back up, to get approval from others that what you are is GOOD

You’re wired that way by design – social in nature

To walk out of the bakery, you have to do the opposite

The less needy you are, the less you care about what other people think, the less you resist people trying to make you into what they think you should be

The more you are independent, the more what people think will roll off your shoulder, the more people will accept you how you are

It takes confidence in yourself to get there, taking action for yourself

Getting yourself to commit to a simple schedule of “my time” is the only way to do this

Take time for yourself and plan to give yourself time

Time for yourself, your mind, your body

You’ll probably complain about working out in the beginning, shedding the excuses that will stop you from getting in a good work out

Stay focused.

Show up for yourself, show up for a good workout

The bored man’s work-it-outside

Sidney Wilson fitness article

Friday’s always make me want to just skip it

It’s the start of the work week for some

It’s the last day of the work week for this guy (meaning me)

Even if it’s the “work weekend”, I don’t switch off, thinking about carving a little bit off here

Toning up some more there – always on your mind, looking for that extra edge

You know that edge to get a little more out of, just hitting the gym, again

It’ll eventually happen to you, if it hasn’t already, gym burn out

The key is to not fight it, forcing yourself to drag your whiny butt back in there

Respect it, that desire for a subtle change, for what it is

It’s melon collie. Ok maybe not that bad and closer to boredom

You’re going to crave mental stimulation of a different sort from time to time

And as much as you’d love to start flippin through the flakebook, ogling the Instagrams – resist!

Don’t do it, it’s always a bottomless pit that will fuel your boredom

Sure, it’s good for a quick hit to the humor vein like a dopamine buzz of distraction but it will ware off just as fast as you get that visual high

Remember what you were told as a kid “go outside and play”

That’s the edge – work-it-outside

There’s no magically guru wisdom in that statement and I can tell you, that’s what you subconsciously want to do when you’re bored

So skip the gym, yes I said it, take a day off from the machines and focus on your noodle

Hit the trails off the beaten path and hike up that hill

Oh, you thought I was going to give you a pass on working out? Nope!

If it ain’t your off day, hit the bricks with them sneaks and get it in

– just not indoors –

Grab that bike and dust it off, drive down to the state park and jump off a cliff – jk

Jump in the lake or the pool in your buddy’s back yard, they barely use it anyway… just be sure to get permission first.

Get far from the busy crazy lights, constant cycle of money machines and modern technology to have some simple fun being you and keep it moving!

Suck in some of that, it’s not city air

Get to the top of mount, look around and take it all in

Before you know it, ya ain’t so bored anymore

Your mind will thank you for it

You might just find yourself smiling again

Tea bagging at starbucks

Sidney Wilson fitness article

Every time I hit the Starbucks

I see it first hand,

Every

Single

Time.

Girls lunging over the counter to get their daily fix, all creamed up

The GRANDE triple stevia, non-fat latte espress-a-chino with “just” a dip of whip on top

Might as well have grabbed a samich at Carl’s and fatty fat sticks – DAMN GIRL!

But who am I to say NO to a good caffeine bump?

When the day drags on, a little buzz boost goes a long way – especially when you’re getting the day started

You don’t have to go for the 8 dollar corporate cool-aid either

*I always get a kick out of my clients when some brugh walks up asking what they ordered and they answer*

“I tea bag it!”

I think they have way too much fun with it… lol

ANYWAY

Green Tea has more than enough caffeine in it to do the job

Plus you’ll make you’re insides happy with the natural metabolic burn benefits in green tea

You won’t feel as bloated

Or that heaviness you can feel all the way down to your ankles

Then there’s that whole dairy IBS thing you’ll get to skip

…tip toeing to find a quiet spot, whispering those not-so-sweet nothings 🙂

When you need more of a punch, you can make it stronger by squeezing the bags, dunk it, and squeeze again

The darker the tea, the stronger it gets

Rinse, repeat until you got it just right

It’s a nudge in the right direction by adding to your day instead of thinking, what do I take away today?

A daily ADD of the right stuff

The stuff your body REALLY wants

Let your insides do the talking, not the hips

One step at a time, adding to each day

Add a brisk walk, or some squats if that’s your focus

You’ll feel the difference faster than you’d guess

Saving some mullah from the green machine while you’re at it

Use that extra cash to bank on a better body instead

Jump the line and get your daily workouts set to a plan, focused on how you want your body to look, and ADD my Online Training – Checkout here www.SidneyWilson.com

Sexy doesn’t count, she never has…

Sidney Wilson fitness article

You’ve probably seen my last few posts on my Instagrams

In my last few posts, you can see me pushing her when

She feels like there is NO MORE GAS IN THE TANK

Yet – with some encouragement, a verbal hip check

She keeps going, getting it done

And she does it every single time

*Insert your best – I hate you right now – look*

All because she knows what you REALLY know about looking sexy…

Sexy Doesn’t Count

You don’t count the Timer on the treadmill

You don’t count the Days on the calendar

You don’t count Down the reps

You don’t do the math when you STAND ON THE SCALE

You don’t count the LIES you’re mind loves to make up for you

You don’t count the TIME on that nice designer Watch…

…that Watch, ain’t gonna make your butt look any better

You don’t count the number of BAD past Relationships

Pass it all up, cuz it ain’t TODAY, RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE

Living in your moment, your life, your body

You Know It’s True – Sexy… She doesn’t count

Drinking on the job fitness

Sidney Wilson fitness article

It goes without saying, you shouldn’t be drinking on the job

But, let’s get real about the business you’re in

You’re going to find yourself in this situation

If not everyday, eventually you will

I’m definitely not saying you should drink yourself into a coma

Nor am I saying you should become a lush

…and I’m expecting you to be a responsible ADULT

For those times where you choose to partake of said festivities

There are choices you can make that will actually be a health-ier option

NO – You’re not going to be able to drink your way to “Flat Abs In 15 min”

Opting for a glass of Red Vino will do your insides better than

The black syrupy german madness of a crap-shot

Read up on Red Wine

All kinds of benefits are attributed to drinking a glass – Not the whole bottle 😉

This is how I look at it Spaniards, Italians, Greeks, and a ton of other people around the world

Drink wine over other alcohols, usually with a meal, sometimes EVERY meal

So much so, it’s become part of their culture and part of a BETTER diet they stick to

Look at the whole of a region of people that add wine to their diet, when they choose to drink that is…

What do they look like – Are they overly obese as a population?

It will make you think about it at a deeper level for sure

Until then, I will preach on as I always do Drinking should be avoided, especially if you’re super focused on your fitness goals

It will only work against you….. HOWEVER

You’re an adult and ya needs ta cheat a lil’ bit here and dare, right?

To keep your focus, no matter where you are in the world, get signed up like other lovey vino lovers with online fitness training

It’s cheaper than a bad drinking habit – IMO

The un-perfect fitness habit

Sidney Wilson fitness article

We all want to strive for perfection when it comes to our diet and reaching our goals.

One thing I’ve learned over the years we are all human and none of us are perfect.

You will make mistakes

You will have slip ups

The reason why I’ve been able to stay in shape year after year, month after month, and day after day isn’t cuz I’m perfect….

It’s the fact that I stay consistent

Consistency beats perfection

Stop beating yourself up over little slip ups

On your diet

Missing a workout

Unless it’s a session with me, then you should feel horrible (lol)

It’s not the end of the world, it’s ok

Don’t make a habit of playing hookey either

Once you splurge and eat out, let’s say a 300 cal splurging

Like your fav’s – In & Out with double every-ting

Don’t let that innocent indiscretion turn into a full blown splurge-a-thon

Shoveling two or three more slip ups in your pie hole, clocking in 2,500 calories

Before it’s all over you’re into a full blown cheat-week

Struggling to lose weight consistently

Underestimating how much food you’re actually inhailing in one sitting.

What I’m trying to say is “It’s OK” to have A slip up

Stay consistent with your diet

Stay consistent your workouts

…and that double double won’t fall back into your naughty little mitts day after day.

You’re impatient,

You strive for perfection,

When you fall off…

You beat yourself up over it

Just remember these words:

“I’m not perfect”

“I will make mistakes”

“I will miss a few meal”

“I will miss a few workouts”

“I will stay consistent with my goals”

There’s a reason why my clients all see amazing results and BADASS transformations.

I’m the little bird on their shoulders reminding them…

You’re not perfect, it’s ok to fall off, just get back up.

If you stay consistent we can get there together.

I’m here to help you stay on track and point you in the right direction.

Follow these directions, get your daily dose of consistency with a program that suits you best here

It’s Friday betting on a Monday

Sidney Wilson fitness article

Good things come to those who wait…

We’ve all heard this saying.

But how true is it?

How long should you be waiting?

Who or What are you waiting for?

When it comes to your fitness goals you really shouldn’t be waiting at all.

Never put off tomorrow what you can do today.

The longer you wait to step inside of a gym and workout – the longer it will take for you to reach your goals.

If you keep putting it off to the last minute, it may never ever happen.

I want you to do something for me, put aside just 30 mins a day to start workout. This will be call your “me time”

Say these works “I’m doing this for me”

I’m going to hit the gym 4 to 5 days a week nothing crazy, 30 mins a day, to “look good” and “feel better” for me.

The ‘Look Good’ and ‘Feel Better’ programs I offer are two of the most popular Online Training Programs, who have helped 1000’s of online clients get started

I hear these words quite often “ I’ll start on Monday ”

Monday comes around, quite often, but if you never get around to it on Monday…

You’ll say the same words again

I’ll start next Monday and again, ok… ok… next Monday for sure!

See the pattern here.

The more you keep telling yourselves I’ll start next Monday the longer it will take for you to get started.

I always say make a promise to yourself and Start Today.

Today is the day you reach out to a trainer who walks the walk

Either Online or One-on-One and sign up to be a better you!

Besides you owe it to yourself to keep it sex-ay.

If you need help, not sure which way to go – I’m only a email away

To see for yourself how affordable ‘Look Better’ & ‘Feel Better’ can be, this is where you need to go www.sidneywilson.com

Sitting on your butt for balance in 15 seconds

Sidney Wilson fitness article

Sitting down is a welcome break when you’ve been on the go all day or night.

Kicking your shoes off, wiggling your toes and give those little nubbies a stretch.

It feels good to put yourself in park for a bit.

But the laws of physics and psychology will tell you

Things at rest, tend to stay at rest

Once you park it on the couch,

It gets real hard to get off the couch

Sitting on the couch can work against you

Messing with your posture and your hips as well

Both of which work against your strength and balance

Trading the couch as your “go to” thang, taking a load off your feet

For an inflatable, blow up fitness ball is the way to go

You know, the big bouncey ball you use at the gym, yoga, even physical therapy

Sitting on the ball forces you to use your hip flexors and focus on your posture

It will remind you to sit up straight and does wonders for your lower back and core

While you’re bouncing up and down – cuz it’s just fun

Lift one leg and extend it out while the rest of you sits on the ball (without bouncing lol)

Hold your leg out for as long as you can and flex your quad muscles

Time yourself and see how you did

Any amount of time is good, just remember how long you can do it for

Now, switch legs and extend the other one out

Keep your back straight, flex your abs

Tracking your time again

Give yourself a quick break (bounce up and down if ya want – heh)

…and let’s repeat the steps with a self-challenge

Beat your last time by 15 seconds for each leg

That’s it – just 15 seconds more at a time

Do this a few more times always beating your first set you timed

The more you do this, the longer you’ll be able to hold and flex your leg out

This will increase leg strength, stretch the hip flexors, train your back for better posture and some extra work on your abs to keep them looking great

When your done, don’t slouch – keep your form for posture, training your body for that nice lower arch in your back

It’s super cheap to get your own fitness ball and can replace an entire gym’s worth of equipment. Learn new exercises, introducing more into your daily routine using the ball.

Did I mention you can take it with you?

Just let the air out, fold it up and slip it into your bag when traveling

It doesn’t take much room. You can also pick a fitness ball that comes with a low profile foot pump. When you’re ready to get a quick workout, fill the ball back up using your feet and you’re all set.

It’s easy to hack your lifestyle with simple, uncomplicated tips and the right exercises for your specific body type – just like my clients that joined here > www.sidneywilson.com

Bigfoot’s fitness advice

Sidney Wilson fitness article

He’s elusive, he’s cunning, or so they say

Yet, no one has ever “really” seen him or

Is it a her?

The late night films and out of focus recordings

Don’t really count.

Does Bigfoot even have a fitness plan?

I don’t know… But! What if he did?

What “could” be said, whether you dig on Bigfoot tales or not

He’s active and always on the move

Walking up steep mountain sides, going for a brisk jog in the early morning dew

Maybe even doing a power slide into a big pile of leaves

Bigfoot’s just wanna have fun, right?

I’d like to think so

Running around all nakid and hairy – lolz

With all that running around, skipping through the forest, throwing flower petals in the air has got to work up an appetite.

His diet HAS got to be on point!

Seriously! Think about it

It’s not like he’s baking bread, making a summer pasta or whippin’ up a nice rice bowl

No, no, no! He’s surrounded by tons of dark leafy green foliage

Berries a plenty, and the river!

Drinking naturally filter water flowing over river rocks

Fresh salmon, trout, maybe a frog or two for protein to keep his muscles fueled and strong

Even a mineral packed lovely earth mud pie to top it all off

Anyway, if there a Bigfoot or not – I don’t know

What does exist is a healthy way of living and eating that even you can agree

If it’s good enough for Bigfoot

It’s good enough for me

Minus the stinky

Once you’ve had you fill of Bigfoot YouTube videos and burned an hour of mindless bizarre curiosity

Leave your legendary mark on life without having to walk around bare-foot, nakid or hairy go here

Makeup attracts time vampires

Sidney Wilson fitness article

I see so many women at the gym with full blown makeup up.

It’s not a fashion show.

Who are you trying to impress?

What actually happens is the opposite of what you’re really looking for

If you’re not here to sweat, why are you even here.

Showing up all dolled up, preps your mind to be focused on everything else but your goals

I’ve seen so many guys try to pick up girls in the gym.

Interrupting you every chance they get

Draining the life out of your workout like a time vampire

Better still, like it’s some kind of a dating service

Instead of a place to workout and get your sweat on.

Too many people are afraid to sweat when they workout

Because it may make them look “unappealing”.

Not only is sweating a sign that you are working hard –

Which generally leads to results

Sweating also shows that you are healthy.

Sweating is great for cleansing your skin

Helps lower your body temperature during those real challenging workouts

…and it also helps fight sickness, boosting your immune system.

(More time to play later in the day)

Don’t be afraid of a little sweating during your workout.

It’s your body’s’ way of showing that you are healthy

More importantly, on the right path to achieving your fitness goals.

If you’re not getting a good burn then you should ease on down the road to www.sidneywilson.com and let’s get our sweat on.

P.S. Smile, and come as you are
