Tips To Staying Cool During Summer Workouts



1. Get the timing right
early morning or late evening is best

2. Stay hydrated
Guidelines recommend consuming 17-20 ounces of water two hours before exercise, 7-10 ounces of fluid every ten minutes during exercise, and 16-24 ounces for every pound of body weight lost after exercise

3. Eat to beat the heat
Avoid spicy foods, which stimulate heat production, also high-protein foods and anything greasy will be harder to digest, thus enhancing internal heat production. Stick with easy to digest foods like fruit, eggs, or yogurt instead!

3. Dress cool
Lightweight, light color, moisture wicking, loose-fitting, and minimal clothing can provide a greater skin surface area for heat dissipation.

3. Take it easy
On crazy-hot days, you may need to change your “go hard or go home” philosophy to “go easy or go inside.” If you’re acclimated to hot weather, then you may be able to tolerate a tough workout in extreme heat, but if you live in an area where three-digit temps make headlines, scale back when a heat wave hits.

3. Notice the warning signs
If you're working out and start to feel crampy, dizzy, or nauseous, stop immediately and start doing damage control. Drink plenty of water and remove any unnecessary clothing. You can also mist your skin with water to bring your body temperature down. 

If your skin is hot but not sweaty, or your pulse feels fast and weak, those are signs of heatstroke. Call 911 and get cool any way that you can until help arrives. Anytime the heat index is over 90 degrees, you’re at risk for heat exhaustion; over 105 degrees, it’s almost a given. So play it safe—if you know you can’t handle the heat, head indoors.

Lemon Garlic Herbed Salmon

Lemon Garlic Herbed Salmon

4 salmon filets (roughly 2 lbs, skin on)
Zest of 1 lemon
1 T parsley
1 t dill
1 clove garlic minced
3 T grass fed butter (I use KerryGold)
Sea salt
Cracked black pepper

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Put tinfoil on baking sheet for easy clean up. Place salmon filets skin side down. Mix all ingredients except salmon in a microwave safe bowl. Melt butter/herb mixture in microwave, roughly 30 seconds. Brush salmon with melted herb mixture and place in oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and use a spatula to carefully remove the salmon from the pan leaving the skin behind. It should come off very easily. Serve with your favorite side dish or vegetable!

Want Flat Abs?

The number one thing you can do to flatten that area is to keep your diet clean. Sorry, there's not a magic exercise (although the routine below will target that area) and there's not a magic pill, but eating well 90% of the time and indulging just 10% of the time will get you results! How bad do you want it? If you are willing to make a few changes throughout the week and build on those, you can quickly change your body - and more importantly - how you feel! Here are a few quick tips on getting on a clean eating track....Eating out is extremely difficult when you're trying to change your habits. You have no idea how they really prepared the food, and very few restaurants offer 'clean' meals. If you can prepare your own food for the first couple of weeks, and eat out as little as possible, that will help tremendously. 

Say no to sugar for a week. Analyze the food labels and if it's got more than 11g per serving, nix it. Avoid cream-based salad dressings. A perfectly healthy salad can quickly become more fattening than a cheeseburger when you top with ranch, croutons, cheese....etc. Eliminate alcohol. That will quickly undo the work you've done if you finish the day with a couple of glasses of wine. Check out the calorie content in the number of oz you are drinking, and relate that to a twinkie. Would you eat a twinkie right before bed? Probably not - but your body doesn't know the difference between drinking your calories and eating them :)

Here is a workout routine that will really target those hard-to-reach lower abs. If you're a beginner, do 1 set of each 10-15 reps. Intermediate will do 2 sets of each movement and up the reps to 20-30. Advanced girls do 3 sets of each with up to 50 reps. 

Toe-to-Sky Hip Raise - Lying on a mat, keep hands out on either side for balance and stability, legs vertical and together. Keeping legs vertical throughout, lift hips off mat slowly, then back down. 

Oblique Crunch w/ Elevated Legs - You can use your couch for this one, place legs on top of couch, keeping quads in a vertical position. As you bring your shoulders off the ground, twist to the right and on the next rep, twist toward the left. 

Knee Tuck - If you have a bench or an ottoman you can use that for this next exercise. Lean back, holding the back of the bench - legs straight out. Bring your bent knees up to your chest and repeat

Reverse Crunch - Lying on the bench, hands behind your head holding on for stability. Start with toes touching the floor. Keep your knees bent throughout the movement - allow your toes to lightly tap the floor on the downward move. 

Texas Fit Chicks Boot Camp will teach you more about how to change your body and your life! Our passion is helping women lead healthy lives, and become great examples to our children and families.

75 WEIGHT LOSS TIPS!




 I can only handle 1 change now. What should it be??
  • Eating out? Halve it, and bag the rest. A typical restaurant entree has 1,000 to 2,000 calories, not even counting the bread, appetizer, beverage, and dessert.
  • When dining out, make it automatic: Order one dessert to share.
  • Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate
  • See what you eat. Plate your food instead of eating out of the jar or bag.
  • Eat the low-cal items on your plate first, then graduate. Start with salads, veggies, and broth soups, and eat meats and starches last. By the time you get to them, you’ll be full enough to be content with smaller portions of the high-calorie choices
  • Instead of whole milk, switch to 1 percent. If you drink one 8-oz glass a day, you’ll lose 5 lb in a year
  • Overeating is not the result of exercise. Vigorous exercise won’t stimulate you to overeat. It’s just the opposite. Exercise at any level helps curb your appetite immediately following the workout.
  • When you’re exercising, you shouldn’t wait for thirst to strike before you take a drink. By the time you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Drink 8 ounces an hour before and another 4 to 8 ounces every 15 to 20 minutes during your workout. Finish with at least 16 ounces after you’re done exercising
  • Drinking too few can hamper your weight loss efforts. That’s because dehydration can slow your metabolism by 3 percent, or about 45 fewer calories burned a day, which in a year could mean weighing 5 pounds more. The key to water isn’t how much you drink, it’s how frequently you drink it. Small amounts sipped often work better than 8 ounces gulped down at once.
  • Skipping breakfast will leave you tired and craving naughty foods by midmorning. To fill up healthfully and tastefully, try this sweet, fruity breakfast full of antioxidants. In a blender, process 1 c nonfat plain or vanilla yogurt, 1 1/3 c frozen strawberries (no added sugar), 1 peeled kiwi, and 1 peeled banana. Pulse until mixture is milkshake consistency. Makes one 2-cup serving; 348 calories and 1.5 fat grams.
  • If you’re famished by 4 p.m. and have no alternative but an office vending machine, reach for the nuts—. The same goes if your only choices are what’s available in the hotel minibar.
  • Next time you’re feeling wiped out in late afternoon, forgo that cup of coffee and reach for a cup of yogurt instead. The combination of protein, carbohydrate, and fat in an 8-ounce serving of low-fat yogurt will give you a sense of fullness and well-being that coffee can’t match, as well as some vital nutrients. If you haven’t eaten in 3 to 4 hours, your blood glucose levels are probably dropping, so eating a small amount of nutrient-rich food will give your brain and your body a boost.
  • Making just a few changes to your pantry shelves can get you a lot closer to your weight loss goals. Here’s what to do: If you use corn and peanut oil, replace it with olive oil. Same goes for breads—go for whole wheat. Trade in those fatty cold cuts like salami and bologna and replace them canned tuna, sliced turkey breast, and lean roast beef. Change from drinking whole milk to fat-free milk or low-fat soy milk. This is hard for a lot of people so try transitioning down to 2 percent and then 1 percent before you go fat-free.
How do I avoid late-night eating??
  • Eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The large majority of people who struggle with night eating are those who skip meals or don’t eat balanced meals during the day. This is a major setup for overeating at night
  • Eat your evening meal in the kitchen or dining room, sitting down at the table.
  • Drink cold unsweetened raspberry tea. It tastes great and keeps your mouth busy.
  • Change your nighttime schedule. It will take effort, but it will pay off. You need something that will occupy your mind and hands.
  • If you’re eating at night due to emotions, you need to focus on getting in touch with what’s going on and taking care of yourself in a way that really works. Find a nonfood method of coping with your stress.
  • Put a sign on the kitchen and refrigerator doors: “Closed after Dinner.”
  • Brush your teeth right after dinner to remind you: No more food.
  • Eat without engaging in any other simultaneous activity. No reading, watching TV, or sitting at the computer.
How can I control my raging sweet tooth??
  • Once in a while, have a lean, mean salad for lunch or dinner, and save the meal’s calories for a full dessert
  • Are you the kind of person who does better if you make up your mind to do without sweets and just not have them around? Or are you going to do better if you have a limited amount of sweets every day? One RD reported that most of her clients pick the latter and find they can avoid bingeing after a few days.
  • If your family thinks they need a very sweet treat every night, try to strike a balance between offering healthy choices but allowing them some “free will.” Compromise with low-fat ice cream and fruit, or sometimes just fruit with a dollop of whipped cream.
  • Try 2 weeks without sweets. It’s amazing how your cravings vanish.
  • Eat more fruit. A person who gets enough fruit in his diet doesn’t have a raging sweet tooth.
  • Eat your sweets, just eat them smart! Carve out about 150 calories per day for your favorite sweet. That amounts to about an ounce of chocolate, half a modest slice of cake, or 1/2 cup of regular ice cream.
  • Try these smart little sweets: sugar-free hot cocoa, frozen red grapes, fudgsicles, sugar-free gum, Nutri-Grain chocolate fudge twists, Tootsie Rolls, and hard candy.
  • Give it away! After company leaves, give away leftover food to neighbors, doormen, or delivery people, or take it to work the next day (and don't set it on your desk :)
  • Walk around the mall three times before you start shopping.
  • Make exercise a nonnegotiable priority.
  • Remember, EAT before you meet. Have this small meal before you go to any parties: a hardboiled Egg, Apple, and a Thirst quencher (water, seltzer, diet soda, tea).
  • As obvious as it sounds, don’t stand near the food at parties. Make the effort, and you’ll find you eat less.
  • At a buffet? Eating a little of everything guarantees high calories. Decide on three or four things, only one of which is high in calories. Save that for last so there’s less chance of overeating.
  • Scramble eggs in a nonstick skillet. Pop some asparagus in the microwave, and add whole wheat toast. If your cholesterol levels are normal, you can have seven eggs a week!
  • A bag of frozen vegetables heated in the microwave, topped with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and 2 tablespoons of chopped nuts.
Great ideas for a low-cal dinner when you don't want to cook
  • A smoothie made with fat-free milk, frozen fruit, and wheat germ.
  • The smallest fast-food burger (with mustard and ketchup, not mayo) and a no-cal beverage. Then at home, have an apple or baby carrots.
  • A peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread with a glass of 1 percent milk and an apple.
  • Skipping meals. Many healthy eaters “diet by day and binge by night.”
  • Don’t “graze” yourself fat. You can easily munch 600 calories of pretzels or cereal without realizing it
  • Eating pasta like crazy. A serving of pasta is 1 cup, but some people routinely eat 4 cups.43. Eating supersize bagels of 400 to 500 calories for snacks
  • Ignoring “Serving Size” on the Nutrition Facts panel.
  • Snacking on bowls of nuts. Nuts are healthy but dense with calories. Put those bowls away, and use nuts as a garnish instead of a snack.
  • Thinking all energy bars and fruit smoothies are low-cal.
How to Cut Calories:
  • Juice has as many calories, ounce for ounce, as soda. Set a limit of one 8-oz glass of fruit juice a day.
  • Get calories from foods you chew, not beverages. Have fresh fruit instead of fruit juice
  • Keep a food journal. It really works wonders
  • Follow the Chinese saying: “Eat until you are eight-tenths full.”
  • Use mustard instead of mayo.
  • Eat more soup. The noncreamy ones are filling but low-calorie
  • Cut back on or cut out caloric drinks such as soda, sweet tea, lemonade, etc. People have lost weight by making just this one change. If you have a 20-oz bottle of Coca-Cola every day, switch to Diet Coke. You should lose 25 lb in a year.
  • Take your lunch to work.
  • Sit when you eat.
  • Dilute juice with water.
  • Have mostly veggies for lunch.
  • Eat at home
  • Limit alcohol to weekends.
How to Eat more Veggies:
  • Incorporate fruit and veggie shakes into your day
  • Have a V8 or tomato juice instead o a Diet Coke at 3 pm.
  • Doctor your veggies to make them delicious: Dribble maple syrup over carrots, and sprinkle chopped nuts on green beans.
  • Mix three different cans of beans and some diet Italian dressing. Eat this three-bean salad all week.
  • Don’t forget that vegetable soup counts as a vegetable.
  • Rediscover the sweet potato.
  • Use prebagged baby spinach everywhere: as “lettuce” in sandwiches, heated in soups, wilted in hot pasta, and added to salads.
  • Spend the extra few dollars to buy vegetables that are already washed and cut up.
  • Really hate veggies? Relax. If you love fruits, eat plenty of them; they are just as healthy (especially colorful ones such as oranges, mangoes, and melons).
  • Keep seven bags of your favorite frozen vegetables on hand. Mix any combination, microwave, and top with your favorite low-fat dressing. Enjoy 3 to 4 cups a day. Makes a great quick dinner.
Mantra to stay on track:
  • “The best portion of high-calorie foods is the smallest one. The best portion of vegetables is the largest one. Period.
  • “I’ll ride the wave. My cravings will disappear after 10 minutes if I turn my attention elsewhere.”
  • “I want to be around to see my grandchildren, so I can forgo a cookie now.”
  • “I am a work in progress.”
  • “It’s more stressful to continue being fat than to stop overeating.”
  • You can't ever "Out-Train" a bad diet

CHICK TRANSFORMATION: Kyle Texas Fit Chicks!!!


Jessica @ Kyle Texas Fit Chicks


One year ago, I went to my very first Kyle Texas Fit Chicks workout! I had no idea what to expect. I couldn't do one sit-up, had no idea what a burpee or Tabata was, had to take multiple breaks and I started with 3 lb weights. Terah has been so completely amazing and of course has been a HUGE part of my transformation! She was there for me every class for the past year pushing, motivating and challenging me! Also nudging me to step up my weight game along the way, (I am now using 8 and 10lb weights and shopping for 12s! 😀) I can't thank her and Texas Fit Chicks enough for helping me on this journey! I'm happy to say I can do about 100 sit-ups now in one sitting, and burpees and Tabatas don't suck as much as they used to!  I've lost 13 pounds and about 14 inches in the past year! Not to mention I feel soooo much better about myself inside and out which is the best progress for me I think!

Chick Transformation: South Austin Texas Fit Chicks


Before I joined S. Austin Texas Fit Chicks I was bored of my "healthy living". I was eating the same meals everyday and only doing cardio. I hated grocery shopping. I was lost in the healthy living world. When I went to my first boot camp I automatically fell in love with the determination and drive this group of women had and shared with me. I have to be honest, I have never lifted weights or workedout the way I do at camp in my life. I am now lifting 10 lbs and there's nothing like someone telling you "you can do anything for 20 seconds!" Heather has done nothing but encourage and push me to do my best. I see my body changing right before my eyes. I've lost wieght, inches and gained muscle. This program and my trainer have been a blessing and has helped me change my life for the better!! 

Her amazing 6 month transformation!! Congratulations on your hard work!!!!

Another Chick Transformation from Joshua Texas Fit Chicks!!!


I haven't been over weight all my life, I was very active when I was in high school playing sports. After that I fell out of working out and being active and just focused more on having fun than anything. When my husband and I moved to Joshua and our neighbor Hollie was a trainer and kept talking about Texas Fit Chicks I got really excited about getting healthy and working out. When she told me that she was starting a camp I was so ready to sign up and become a new and improved me! She is an amazing person and a great motivator. She has helped me decide what kind of vitamins my body needed since I was working out and the right foods to eat. I eat so much more healthier now than I have in years. Now, I am down 20 or so pounds and couldn't be happier. I can now do a burpee and I never tell her this but I do like them, I can do a real plank longer than 30 seconds, do a real push up and so much more! Thank you Hollie Walsh and Texas Fit Chicks for changing my life!

Joshua Texas Fit Chicks: Chick Transformation!!


Lessons from my Weight Loss Journey

By Cathleen, a Joshua Texas Fit Chick
Down 109.7 pounds
I’ve been overweight most of my life. On occasion, I would lose using a fad diet, but the weight came back, and then some. Excuse after excuse were no longer an option when, in January of 2014, I retired. To what do I owe my success?  
  • Pray. Pray daily for the strength to continue weight loss successes and to be an encouragement to others.  Being an encouragement to others is another critical source of inspiration.  
  • Keep a food journal. I use the “LoseIt” app, but there are other options and simple paper works well. The key is to record every morsel you put in your mouth.  When I go to a birthday party, I eat cake!   As you progress with journaling, begin to analyze the quality of your food choices.
  • Move! Start small. I started walking outside 2-3 times per week for 30 minutes. Bad weather cannot be an excuse. I joined the YMCA and began to increase the amount and number of times per week I exercised. Over time, my expectation grew to engage in rigorous physical activity each day. Coming close to this goal is satisfactory.
  • Social connections are KEY to success. I found Joshua Texas Fit Chicks when I needed it most. Honestly, I hid my self-consciousness when I first attended, but I did what I was able. Hollie Rae is absolutely the most supportive, encouraging, driven trainer with whom I’ve worked. She modifies all work-outs and has a 6th sense in regard to the progress of each individual, knowing inherently what each of us needs. When the 1st fitness test was announced, I wanted to crawl under a rock.  I could not do one sit-up, couldn’t plank, and couldn’t do real push-ups. Even so, the camaraderie among the group is amazing.  Everyone is accepted, encouraged, and the feeling is amazing. The private Facebook page is a source of support, recipes, encouragement, and deep friendships. The best part? In a short time with Joshua Fit Chicks, I am able to perform sit-ups, plank for 90 seconds, complete push-ups, wall sit for 3 minutes, and the list goes on.  I am stronger than I've ever been.  
  • Accept that you will have set backs.  Simple, but difficult to accept.  On a cruise, I gained 7 pounds.  When I returned, I got right back on my plan.  My sweet Daddy passed away, I gained weight.  Stress is the devil. I stuck to my plan and eventually, with determination, outlasted the gains and began to lose again.  My most recent challenge is shoulder surgery.  The recovery process is brutal and long term.  I am struggling more than I ever have with journaling my food, the food choices I make, with accepting I cannot exercise and must rest to let my body heal.  But, I will return to being “in the weight loss zone”.
