MonaVie RVLution Speaks: Quote of the Day
“Knowledge is knowing. Wisdom is applied knowledge.”
Know your “why”—your reason and purpose for Body Confidence.
6 Components of the Body Confidence Plan: (1) sleep; (2) nutrition; (3) exercise; (4) vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids; (5) water; (6) stress.
Water is a key component of your Body Confidence Plan. It seems to be constantly neglected. I think this is because people just do not know why it is so important. So drink up and you will see, feel, and experience the difference with a hydrated body!
Stress is a vital part of your body’s defense mechanisms. Just like every other component in your Body Confidence Plan, the key to dealing with stress is to keep it in a balanced state.
Your body is a “refuel as it goes” machine. It needs to be fed the right fuel if you want to take your Body Confidence to the next level.
Your nutrition releases your stored fat, and your exercise burns up that fat.
Eight Tips for Exercise Success
Tip 1—Exercise in the morning
Tip 2—Eat before you exercise
Tip 3—Always do high-intensity cardio or strength training before fat-burning cardio
Tip 4—You may need to eat sooner than three hours after working out
Tip 5—Disregard all settings on cardio machines
Tip 6—Sports are a fun way to get in your cardio
Tip 7—If you are short on time, always do cardio instead of strength training
Tip 8—Journal your exercise to monitor your progress
Everything we do in life is a process.
The key to winning is making the right adjustments to your game plan.
“There is nothing brilliant or outstanding in my record, except perhaps this one thing: I do the things that I believe ought to be done…. And when I make up my mind to do a thing, I act.”
—President Theodore Roosevelt
“If I quit, then every person I spoke to and told not to quit on their dreams would have a reason to quit, too.”
Body Confidence is a revolutionary approach based on three key nutrition factors that stabilize your blood sugar and keep your body in balance:
- Eating at consistent meal intervals
- Absolute certainty in essential nutrient ratio of protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
- Identifying and consuming the right amount of calories per meal.
“If you live in the past, your future is already determined.”
Our goals are living and breathing pieces of us. They provide us with clarity, purpose, and direction. We must always remember that we control the goal, the goal does not control us. As we change, so will our goals.
—From Body Confidence by Mark Macdonald
“There are many things we cannot control in life; the one thing we can control is how we choose to take care of ourselves.”
“I have to tell you I have been fighting what I call ‘the surge of tiredness’ that hits me every day around 4:30 p.m., and then lets up around 6 p.m. This has been going on for seven plus years. Just four days after Dallas, my ‘surge of tiredness’ has almost vanished, and I am starting to drop weight on MonaVie RVL. I feel so different…so much more energy. The next time you see me in person, there will be a lot less of me!”
