10 Tips for Controlling Your Inner Cookie Monster
By Mark Nelson from Beachbody

Wow, it’s been a crazy busy couple of weeks. My new saying is, "Full Plate, Full Life" and I truly believe in it. I used to resent my busy schedule and lack of time. I now realize that I’m very lucky to have my life, my family and my responsibilities. Once I realized that, I knew that there were ways to make it work just by changing my attitude. Alisha and I went to a 4 day PSI (Personal Success Institute) seminar in Phoenix last weekend. Completely changed our lives. I met some amazing people and heard some amazing stories and realized how lucky I am to have what I have. But I also realized how much improvement I could do on myself and my attitude toward my life and my goals.
The facilitator was a P90X grad and kept referring to us (about 8 coaches there) as the "P90" crew. Several people there were wanting to change their lives and get in shape, some were wanting to work on their inner problems and some on their businesses. But what was funny was how Jeff (facilitator) kept referring to P90X and how it compares to our lives. He mentioned how when you want to get in shape, you have to eat right and workout. There’s no magic pill that will fix it for you. He then went on to talk about the pain your body goes through during the changes it experiences and how it relates to life and the pains we go through when we just live life. There’s the pain we experience when we lose a loved one, like Alisha did when her grandmother died last week, or maybe it’s the pain of losing your job….or maybe you have goals you set in your life that aren’t coming true. The obstacles you’re facing seem too big to conquer. That’s when most people give up. That’s especially true with your fitness.
So what do you do? Here’s some tips that I learned over the weekend that I wanted to pass on. First and foremost be excited! Excitement creates EVERYTHING. If you can think it, you can create it. Think about what your fitness goals are and be SMART. What do I mean by smart? This: S-specific (be specific w/ your goal), M-Measurable (make it a goal you can track as you go), A-attainable (make it a realistic goal but don’t be afraid to aim high), R-risk (take the risk of failing, or you’ll never succeed) and T-time (be patient and enjoy the journey). Visualize your goal. Is it a dress you want to fit in? Is it to be the dad who can take his shirt off next summer and be OK with it? In the end it’s you that has to be happy. Don’t worry about what other people think, worry about what you think and do it for yourself and your confidence. Don’t do it for other people, because you’ll never stick with it.
Last thing, remember that age has nothing to do with it! It doesn’t matter how old you are, you’re always growing and becoming a better person. Commit to be better. Beachbody’s motto has never been more true. Decide, Commit, and Succeed!

About the December Workout
"Even Tony was scared of this lineup. Get ready for moves that are just plain cruel like jack-in-the-box knee tucks. Or Think Drills that’ll make you think twice about your coordination. This is plyo to the Nth degree. Let the sweating begin."
"Feed on a steady diet of plyo for an hour with (thankfully) a few iso moves thrown in for dessert. You’ll be spinning, jumping, squatting, lunging, frog hopping and more. Work on your balance, vertical jump and just plain staying alive."
Here’s a sample of what you get!!!!
