Memphis Trainer at Energy Fitness, Tonya Tittle sees trend for children ages 40 to 60 putting their own risk at health having to become caretakers of their own parent(s).

As of lately many of our current and new clients have found themselves in the role of caretaker for their parent or parents. This takes a toll on the health of the child by an average of a 20 pound weight gain, stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation, poor eating habits, and many more body transforming changes.

Ask yourself how you can continue to care for someone else if you are putting your own health at risk. How long can your own body endure the abuse of neglect? If this sounds like you or you think your parents or loved ones may be a target in the future for your attention and care them, then you had better get on the fitness wagon now.

Stop with the all or nothing mentality. Adopt the 20 minutes or all mentality.

Your Action Plan:

  • Keep duplicate sets of exercise clothes/shoes in your car, office, boyfriends or girlfriends house.
  • Keep healthy snacks (fruit, fruit leathers, nuts, rice cakes, protein bars) in the same places listed above. Being prepared if half the battle.
  • Print a calendar and mark an x for every day that you do at least 10 minutes of exercise. At the end of the month you will be able to visually see how much time you are devoting to YOU!
  • Hire a trainer (like me) if you need accountability and results.

Energy Fitness’ Memphis Trainer Tonya Tittle Recommends These Books to help you finally lose weight and get fit.

The books I am recommending below were life changing for me and several clients. My husband loves to tell people that I use to eat corn dogs, frozen dinners, and lots of sugar. It’s true. He especially loves to tell the story of one of our first dates how I had him take me to the Butcher Shop. While he was eating a salad I was chowing down on a big steak, toast, and baked potato. He was completely grossed out. I rarely ate red meat but figured since my date was paying for it that I was going to “go big”. That was back in 1998 and my diet / way of eating has been transformed ever since. I have eliminated numerous items from my plate and substituted them for much healthier versions that I really enjoy and help keep me young, pain free, skinny, healthy, and energetic to perform the sports I love and keep up with my 2 young boys. I didn’t want to be one of those persons that said “I used to be skinny and pretty”.

Clients are always asking what they should eat, how many calories, etc. We have custom meal plans that we give to our clients. A person can’t follow a meal plan forever. We try to teach you a smart and healthy way to eating. Don’t get frustrated with yourself on your quest to change. It may take you months or even years to train yourself to eat healthy foods and get your taste buds craving the better for your body food choices.

Enough forward… below are favorite books to date:

Fit For Life (Author: Harvey and Marilyn Diamond)
Fast Food Nation (the darkside of the all american meal)
Nancy Clark’s Sports Nutrition Guidebook
Skinny Bitch
The Juiceman’s Power of Juicing
Master Cleanse (lemonade diet)
What they don’t want you to know (Author: Kevin Treaudou)

My favorite sayings are :

“You are what you eat!”

“If slaughter houses had glass walls we would all be vegetarians.”

“Nothing tastes as good as how being skinny feels.”

“A moment on the lips and a lifetime on the hips.”
