Turbulence Training Transformation Contest

Yes, I've won it once, placed twice, and I'm no longer eligible to win a prize, so why am I joining the 15th Turbulence Training Transformation Contest?

Hers are my three top reasons.

#1.  It works.

I was listening to a podcast last week with Dr. Stephen Phinney, and he called anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight and kept it off for more than a year part of the .01%.  who have succeeded at losing weight long term.  Not 5%, not 1%, but .01%

Is it really that rare to to release fat for good?  If it is, than it's imperative for me to keep following, teaching, and writing about the program that keeps working for me.

My Turbulence Training Affiliate Link.

Yes, if you click that link and buy the program I earn a commission, and I'm proud to encourage you to do so because my favorite training programs are all there, including the famous TT 2K3 which made me believe for the first time ever that I could build the body of my dreams and win the 2nd Turbulence Training Transformation Contest.

#2.  I'm joining to encourage and support my clients.

Just this month, I opened Gordon Studio with the help and support of my husband and son.  Visit www.gordonstudiosonora.com to see the current class schedule.  Several of my students are joining the contest, and I want to be right there with them, doing the training and making the positive eating and mindset choices that lead to success.

We live in a world that surrounds us with the temptation to just sit and eat, and I never managed to keep positive fitness changes until I stopped trying to do it alone.  I always thought if nobody knew I was trying to get fit, nobody would know if I failed, and I would have nothing to feel ashamed of.  I was a prisoner of the kind of foolish pride that kept me from asking for help, support, and encouragement.  After I joined the second transformation contest, I learned that lo and behold the best way to get support for your goals is to give support and encouragement to someone else.

#3.  The Transformation Contest Keeps Me Honest.

I am so good at fooling myself.  I am a master of the kind of self talk that says, "I'll start tomorrow, "Just one won't hurt", and "These must have shrunk in the wash".

For whatever reason, I find it a lot easier to lie to myself than to lie to clients, colleagues, and friends.

The truth is that I have allowed my focus to be pulled away from what created my transformation in the first place:  Turbulence Training, Optimal Eating, and Social Support.


So here I am, back for the good stuff.  On Friday we will be taking "Before" photos and measurements at Gordon Studio, and for the next 12 weeks I will be writing about what we discover on this latest journey towards the authentic ideal body that is the vehicle for our dreams.  Join us for some serious fun.
