Finish Fit boot camp has demonstrated to me that I am VERY capable of pushing my body to its limits. Prior to starting the class I was nervous because it had been a really long time since I had been physically active. With Finish Fit I am now 5 pounds away from my pre-baby weight, something I had been trying to lose for two years! Thanks Lauren, Brett and Armen for helping me lose 10 pounds in four weeks!

Success Stories
David Binns
My name is David Binns. I began working out three years ago and while I was able to lose weight, I still lacked tone. I began lifting but only showed very small results after a year. Since I have started training with Armen, I have gained about 8 lbs of muscle in a short 3 months. I have more energy, better stamina, and my workout regimen has improved as well to be more rounded. These are things that I tried to do myself by reading books on the subject but that I am now convinced only comes with years experience and an extended education in training. These are both things that Armen possesses and has used to guide me to very favorable results. Using his advice I have improved my diet, and focused on foods that help burn fat and build muscle. My workouts have reached new levels with him pushing me to attain the best results. Armen has also helped me to create a workout schedule for the whole week, not just at personal training. I would recommend personal training to anyone who wants fast results that last.

You Overindulged. Now What?

Steps to take after breaking your diet in two.

A holiday feast, huge restaurant servings, and an entire carton of ice cream. Overindulgences happen. It’s hard to resist every temptation that stares you in the face. However, each new day is a chance to start fresh, commit to your health and fitness goals, and get to work.

You can expect to make a few mistakes when you’re trying to lose weight, but what can you do to make up for the setback?

Give Yourself Grace

Very few people can say they never broke a diet, so give yourself a little grace. You weren’t supposed to eat carbs but ate three rolls at dinner. It happens. Forgive yourself. Feeling guilty, mad at yourself, and seeing yourself as a failure will not fix anything. Instead of wallowing in self pity or falling into a cycle of guilt and overeating, relax, learn from your mistakes, and move forward in hope.

Drink Some H2O

Did you feel bloated after dinner because you ate too much? Wake up the next morning and drink a full glass of lukewarm water mixed with lemon. This mixture will help flush your system and relieve bloating. Then, aim to continue drinking lots of water throughout the day. Keep a water bottle nearby to remind you.

Take a Walk

It’s easy to think that if you just exercise enough you can undo all the damage you did by overindulging. Be careful of this mindset because it may be motivated by guilt over your mistake. Taking a walk after a big meal can help you feel better, speed digestion, and regulate blood sugar, but you don’t need to run on the treadmill for two hours to burn the extra calories. Just stick to your regular daily exercise routine.

Eat Clean

So you ate a Big Mac and fries, drank a large soda, and finished it off with an ice cream sundae. While it may have tasted good at the time, now you regret it. You may think you need to go on a cleanse or a fast, but doing so may only lead you to overeat again. Plan to eat clean foods the next day to give yourself a fresh start and to get back on track with your diet. Focus on whole foods that include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Don’t Take a Nap

You may be tempted to lie down and take a nap after eating a big meal. Unfortunately, napping will only slow digestion or cause acid reflux, which can be very uncomfortable. Instead, give your stomach time to feel less full before lying down.

Ask Why?

Deep down you want to be healthy and reach your weight loss goals. So why do you keep getting off track? Knowing the answer to this question can help you avoid overeating in the future. When you recognize your triggers, you can take steps to overcome them. Do you overeat because you’re bored, distracted, or depressed? Does overeating only tend to happen when you go out to eat or when you’re with certain people? Are specific foods your weakness?

Seek Help

An occasional overindulgence is normal, but sometimes overeating can turn into an eating disorder. Binge eating disorder occurs when you can’t seem to stop yourself from overeating and afterwards you feel ashamed, angry, and frustrated. These feelings lead to more overeating in an effort to feel better. Scary as this condition may be, help is available. End the cycle and repair your relationship with food by seeking help from a professional counselor.
