Time 2 Change Member Profile: Bonnie Chambers

POSTED BY: T2C on September 6, 2018, 10:22 a.m. So … I did a thing. On April 1st of this year, I decided to make some big changes. I was tired of looking how I was looking (fat). I was tired of feeling how I was feeling (no energy). I didn’t like the way I looked and felt, and it was negatively impacting everything. I stepped on the scale for the first time in over a year and wanted to cry. I was on the wrong side of 200. I weighed in at a whopping 237 pounds. This was 57 pounds higher than when I was nine months pregnant and 100...

How to get back on track and back to working out

POSTED BY: Teresa Yockey on July 9, 2018, 6:30 a.m. You’re on a roll and in a good routine from a health and fitness standpoint. Then life throws you a curve ball (and that could be basketball- or tennis ball-sized), and there’s an impact to one or more areas of your life — like your work, your family or what you eat each day and how much activity you get. I’ve been there before, and I bet you have, too. So if you’re looking for motivation to get past the curve balls life sends your way, here’s advice for getting back on...

Do women work out differently than men? I think so

Do women work out differently than men? I think so

POSTED BY: Levi Jansen on March 2, 2018, 10:25 a.m. From how they live and what they believe, women often have a different fitness journey than men. Here are things I’ve learned along my journey working with women. One differences between the male and female fitness journey is the wonderful high heel. You know that shoe that makes your feet ache and your balance, well, nonexistent? Guys don’t have to worry about that. While this is not a warning to never ever wear heels, daily wear can take a toll on your body. First of all, high heels...

Should women track calories, macronutrients, points or … [fill in the blank]?

Should women track calories, macronutrients, points or … [fill in the blank]?

POSTED BY: Jenn Hockaday on July 8, 2017, 1:15 p.m. Almost daily, we see a news story (or a blog or Facebook post) with someone singing the praises of a food-tracking tool or program. But news hype aside, what should you track? Is it calories (because calories do count, of course)? What about macronutrients (i.e., protein, carbs, fat, etc.)? What about counting points or units of food?   In the work I do as a trainer for Time 2 Change Fitness for Women and also outside of work, I get asked this question a lot — most often from women and...

My Whole30 experience

POSTED BY: Teresa Yockey on May 17, 2017, 9:50 a.m. Have you ever wanted to do a nutrition-related reboot or re-set, where you re-focus on healthy eating? I did that recently when I decided to try the Whole30® program.     With Whole30, you go through a process of eliminating (and later re-adding) certain food groups in exchange for using other sources of nutrition to give your body energy. For example, many people eat a carbohydrate-heavy diet vs. feeding the body with healthy fats and protein....

Celebrating NSVs (Non-Scale Victories) at Time 2 Change

POSTED BY: Teresa Yockey on April 3, 2017, 7:22 a.m. Ever seen the #NSV hashtag on social media or heard the “non-scale victory” term? NSVs acknowledge there is more to celebrate than just numbers on a scale — they’re for recognizing other benefits for getting fit and healthy. I recently asked my members to tell me about the non-scale victories they’re experiencing at Time 2 Change Fitness for Women. I’d heard their feedback about pounds lost or body fat reduced, but I knew there was more to the story. And there...

Time 2 Change trainers’ advice for managing holiday temptations

POSTED BY: T2C News on November 30, 2016, 11:15 a.m. ‘Tis the season for festive fun … but it can also bring extra stress — too many commitments and no time to work out! — and more food than anyone should consume at one given meal. (Thirds? Heck, why not!) Our Time 2 Change Fitness for Women owner and trainers have significant experience focusing on women’s fitness and nutrition. Through the years, they’ve talked through holiday strategies with many clients (e.g., how to avoid extra calories and how to still make time...
