Gabby Reece to Readers: Grow Up!

Gabrielle Reece, is not unlike yours truly, and has been coaching us all online to a healthier, happier you. It seems that Ms. Gabby has hit the end of her rope with her readers...

In one of her latest posts on, she lays it on the line:

"...Is it fun? Grow up. What single thing in life worth having is easy? I think it's so strange because for the most part, we're taught that if we just work hard, we can make anything happen. Yet, we can't seem to buy into that when it comes to our own health and bodies.

Get a friend right now and make a plan. Start three days a week walking or biking. Do something active three days a week for 30 minutes. Get your heart rate up. Once you get going, start taking a class together once a week. Split the fees on a trainer once a month. Mix it up and try to get creative.

Get away from the TV and computer and use that time for YOU. Here, I'll make it easy -- treat it like work. Don't flake, just show up and get it done. I know the food is the most challenging part, but it's key in this equation.

Watch your portions, don't skip meals, monitor snacking, drink only water, eat real food, don't microwave stuff, avoid the drive-thru, and if you're questioning whether or not something is "OK to eat," chances are you already know the answer. When I say it doesn't come easy, that doesn't mean it has to be total hell either. Get involved with your health and fitness life, and you'll begin to see that there are a lot of ways to cheat, have fun, and still be successful.

Last nagging point, find ways to not let the stress get to you, and sleep, babies. Let's go, people. This is it. You can do it."

While it does seem a little harsh at first, I have to say that I completely agree with her here. Time and time again, we so called fatbloggers get tons of emails requesting the magic bullet of exercise and weight loss. That is like winning the lottery folks, and for most of us, it's just not going to happen. Put in the time and effort and you will get results.
