  • Unblock Yourself

    November 10, 2017 “Unblock Yourself” No matter how many times someone praises you, compliments your progress, or supports you along your fitness journey, if you don’t believe in yourself or have confidence in your ability you will in one way or another block yourself from achieving your goals. I had a client that went MIA, I was quite surprised because, since the first week of camp, I did nothing but praise her, I even moved her up to another team because she was that good. I saw how strong she was getting every day and then suddenly, she just stopped coming. When she did return she wrote this statement in her journal. “Okay...I got ....

  • Are You Naked and Afraid or Un-Afraid?

    Are You Naked and Afraid or Un-Afraid?

    In April 2014 I lost my beloved pet dog Gally. I had had her for many years and she gave me nothing but pure unconditional love. When I was sick, she’d walk me to the bathroom to make sure I was okay. When I pulled into my garage, I could hear her barking with excitement, eager to greet me. My neighbor’s kids loved her so much that they gave me a plant when Gally passed away. I cherished that plant in my old home as a connection to my Gally with it sitting front and center on my kitchen table. This past April I sold my home. Moving and packing a large home is an arduous and time-consuming process. I was so expended by the process and due to packing and relocating, I became ....

  • Are You Losing Fat or Muscle?

    Are You Losing Fat or Muscle?

    Are You Losing Fat or Muscle? Typically, when you want to “lose weight,” you mean you want to lose fat while maintaining as much muscle as possible. If you’re losing muscle and not fat, then you may need to make some changes to yourdiet and exercise to counteract this. This is the third week of boot camp, and clients are finally realizing that losing weight is hard. From the diet changes to the ramped-up workouts, it can take a serious overhaul on your lifestyle. Usually, the goal is to decrease body fat and increase muscle. But sometimes in the quest, you can start to lose muscle instead of fat. In order to cut fat, while still building ....

  • Chew on That and Lose Fat

    Chew on That and Lose Fat

    August 14, 2020 “Chew on That and Lose Fat” When I teach classes on nutrition I always ask, “Where does digestion start?”, the most popular answer is in the stomach. Digestion starts with your senses, sight & smell. Just think, when you walk into a movie theater and smell popcorn, you didn’t actually want it until you smelled it, then you start to salivate, and digestive enzymes are released in your mouth ready to begin breaking down the popcorn, you haven’t even placed in your mouth. The problem is, once you finally place a handful in your mouth, you take a couple of chews and then swallow, followed by another handful of popcorn. Sound familiar? ....

  • Are you Buried or Planted?

    Are you Buried or Planted?

    August 7, 2020 Are you Buried or Planted? Congratulations! You've made it through week one of our first socially distanced Bootcamp. This week several people approached me and said after just a few days of exercising, they feel ALIVE again. "Sometimes when you're in a dark place, you think you've been buried, but you've actually been planted," by Christine Caine Read. During this crisis I have experienced the highest and lowest points of life, like many of you. What I came to realize is there are opportunities to be found in the challenges we face. Most often, crisis brings the best out in people. I've witnessed ....

  • Covid-19 Update: Water and B12 Available Again

    To Our Valued Clients: We are aware of Governor Kemp’s press conference announcing that the state of Georgia will now allow businesses to reopen on Friday, April 24th. Although we are eager to open, we believe that is not the best decision at this time. The health and safety of our clients, trainers, and staff remain our top priority at Tadda’s Fitness Center. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to ravage our state and nation; and the number of Georgia Covid-19 cases continues to rise and Georgia testing availability remains very limited, we do not believe that it is wise or responsible to re-open our doors at this time. We will continue to monitor and ....

  • In the Midst of this Chaos There is still Light

    In the Midst of this Chaos There is still Light

    We are living in a time that no one on earth has ever seen. I go through different emotions when I reflect on this statement. Fear of the unknown, excitement for change, heartbreak for the deaths and family financial crisis, inspired to create, chaotic and grateful I have my God. I want you to know that life is not easy for any of us right now. Every day presents an unpredictable challenge. The world is in disorder; shutdowns, quarantines, sports, concerts and the Olympics cancelled, store closings, curfews, children becoming homeschoolers, with parents being forced to teach, businesses closing, and an untrustworthy President. We are living in what appear to be ....

  • Practice Confidence

    Practice Confidence

    March 13, 2020 “Practice Confidence” When people meet me today, they often say they admire my confidence. I must admit I haven’t always exuded this much self-assurance. Growing up, I was extremely tiny, underdeveloped for my age and very shy. When I started playing sports my confidence began to boost. However, when I reached the dating age my confidence waned as I grew concerned with other’s thoughts about my appearance. It took me a while to realize that my worth doesn’t decrease because of someone’s inability to see my worth. And once I realized that…I became No Mess. When I was planning my annual birthday photoshoot, I thought about how ....

  • Connect with your End Vision

    Connect with your End Vision

    You may have experienced this; you begin a new project, like a fitness journey, full of energy and enthusiasm. Then when you get into the thick of things, this energy fades away, bit by bit. You’re still excited about the overall vision, but you’re not so hyped about the nitty gritty, day to day tasks, that are required as part of the work. After all, it’s the beautiful house that you seek at the end, not all the brick laying and cementing work that holds your enthusiasm. But the brick laying and cement work IS the foundation of that beautiful house in the end. Every little bit you’re doing now counts toward realizing that end vision and establishing the ....
