I’m personally living the exact same lifestyle.
The main thing to say about the above. Is that everything that you see on here, is happening
So expect to see more of that.
Let’s have some actionable blueprint tips to end the 5 day week…
#1 Butt fix – 2 x 7 reps of the foot raised single leg quadruped hip extension with ankle weights. Add it
However… You need to be put through the strength progression exercises to do this exercise effectively
#2 Arms fix – Close grip pull ups + half reps + 5 x 5 reps + 30 second breaks between sets.
Add this to exercise to all of your upper body workouts for a month for the S-curvish arms that we spoke
But it’ll only make a noticeable difference if your body fat percentage is below 25%.
I’m talking, life after the noticeable results stage.
Because the probability of quitting is a lot higher at the 1-3 month stage of initially starting.
And there’s no point fooling yourself that you don’t want to look your S-curvish best. Because you see
yourself in the mirror everyday. Several times a day. Especially as a lady. And you know this.
It’s universal. It’s an official woman’s ‘thing’. Ha.
And… You can’t fool yourself into doing it on your own as a beginner/intermediate member. Because
you don’t have what it takes yet. Until you reach the stage 4 pro level.
– Which means you’ll probably experience crappy results or no change at all, during those ‘alone’
– Which is of course the reason why you started a program in the first place.
– Which means… You’re going around in circles, repeating the same mistake year after year.
And that…. Is the problem we have been working to solve for the past 4 years.
To stop the constant buying of program’s. Like > this member.

#2 2-6 months – You’ll start to see changes around your body. And with your strength levels.
But it’s a grind. That’s the real work that we do here. To help you through that @ the grind stage.
But you’ll be on your way to becoming 60% S-curvish at this point. This is where you would usually
fall off. But of course, that won’t happen any more.
And it’s when you’re on your way to becoming pro.
#3 6-12 months – > Pam’s pictures. I always use the best S-curve member examples to explain
anything that I talk about here.
‘Her’ picture timeline, is how long it’ll take for most.
But what’s more important, is her communication timeline that you can see on FB messenger chats.
That’s what a lifestyle phase convo timeline looks like.
Everything is live and real now. The face to face and online experience is the same.
So don’t even try to hide behind some BS online hissy fits. Because I’ll call you out on your BS. Just

And remember… If you’re a ‘Dianne FitBuzzer’ from yesterday’s newsletter. Then… We’re currently
And you’ll be communicating with me the moment you do, anyway.
This is great timing if you have any summer travel-curvish plans. Because you’ll at least look 60%

You will not be disappointed.

She’s already S-curvish. She just needs to shred some fat around her body.
Yes… It might take longer. But you can get there, if you’re in a situation like hers @ explanation shortly.
So let’s go @ protocol reminders
A 9-5 working day…
– Oats (Slow carbs)
– Natural pineapple juice drink (Fast carbs)
– Whey protein on oats (Fast protein)
– Whole eggs (Slower protein and mono/poly fats)
– Tilapia (Slow protein)
– Broccoli (Fibrous carbs)
– Pasta (Slow carbs)
Workout period (Before and after)
– Whey (Fast protein)
– Natural banana shake (Fast carbs)
– Purple rice (Slow carbs)
– Any lean meat with no saturated fat (Slow protein)
– Asparagus (Fibrous carbs)
– No fruit at night
– No fat at night (Fish oil tablets are ok though)
You need to do some variation of that, consistently, daily. But of course… It will change over
Enter: FitBuzzer Dianne (She’s a special case. So no pics at present)
So… Recently, we’ve been talking about the 1-3 month gold plan period. I talked about how this works
And it truly is the most important time period, as a new member. Or if you want to boost your results.
So today… We’re going to do a > 2 month special gold program. Where you show up, without fail
But your 3rd month can be a free month on bronze.
Because of the conversation that I had with Dianne yesterday.
You see… She’s been reading every newsletter since I connected with her in September 2014.
I couldn’t meet up with her back then, because that’s when she was diagnosed with lupus.
This means that she can’t do S-curve workouts. Not even of I tailor everything. Which means… She can
She couldn’t even leave her house to see me. And after seeing her yesterday. I can see why. Even though
And when I met up with her yesterday. She revealed to me that, although the newsletter does it’s job, it’s
A program is required to help with that.
I’ve heard this before and I already know that’s a problem. That convo just added to that fuel to that fact.
So this is about getting all ‘Dianne type’ FitBuzzers to officially start.
Almost everyone who does ‘start’, replies to talk to me first. So do that. OKzee.

You’re brand new. Never tried a program. You’re not totally sure about things yet.
$10 and you a get a ‘the right direction’ plan.
So… You could still win on your own. Even if you didn’t ever take on another program. But if it’s a good program that you’re after. Then… We wouldn’t just leave you hanging. You need that higher level of help.
The 30 day trial ‘is’ the best program (gold) experience.
We’re learning about you, you’re learning about all things S-curvish. For some… The experience is very different to what they’ve done before.
But then, they start winning. And question things no more. Ha.
You know ‘what’s up’ at this point. You’re in.
This is where the true program begins. The reason why it’s best to start on gold, is because we’re very hands on and intense. There’s a lot to learn. Which usually happens over a 6-18 month time period. But it gets easier over time. Which is why we have the bronze program.
6-12 months on stage 3 it is for most people. But like I said… It gets easier over time. However… Most members have been here for 3-5+ years.
They always come back.
The 90-100% S-curve goal is 1-5 years in this lifestyle. So you’ll need ‘something’ to look after you during this period.
Talking of coming back though…
You can see, her story so far on > this page. And I’ve added her recent S-curvish pics to the page too. Just scroll down to the bottom.
Yup. Still very S-curvish.
She doesn’t post a lot of pics like that. Because there are a lot of ups and downs in her life… Like everyone else.
That’s what it’s like after your initial 6-12 month period of becoming S-curvish. You can see that in her picture story too. As she was very active in the beginning stages.
Either way… It’s been 3-5 years since she first made the change to become S-curvish. And today, as you can see… She’s still very much there.
She hasn’t slipped back into her less-curvish self that you can see in her first pictures.
#1 Becoming S-curvish
#2 Shredding to smexy
We’ve been at this since 2011-12. We’re truly in this for the long term. It was said then. And it’s being said now, all these years later. Everything has been documented.
It doesn’t matter if your goal is #1 or #2. Your long term time line will look similar Stephys, above.

Many professionals are trained in hypnotherapy in Brisbane and all over Australia, for example doctors, nurses, psychologists and of course, hypnotherapists. However, self-hypnosis is a relatively simple process that anyone can use to introduce positive changes in their mental and physical health. Let us see how it works:
WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Glynis Bretherton is a known name in the Australian hypnotherapy profession. She describes hypnosis as a trance-like state that is characterised by relaxation, increased suggestibility, and heightened imagination. During hypnosis, a person goes into the theta brainwave state, which is similar to the state experienced in day dreaming, light sleep
or deep meditation.
WHAT IS SELF-HYPNOSIS?
Dr Milton Erickson, often regarded as the father of hypnotism, stated that “all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.”
What the above statement means is that even when being guided by a trained professional, a person will not undergo hypnosis if they are not willing to do it. The state of hypnosis is induced by a person’s will and belief; a professional just
facilitates the process.
Self-hypnosis is something most of us have experienced many times. Do you remember for instances when you are “mesmerised” by a cracker or ripples in the water or anything else, for that matter, and lose all awareness of your surroundings temporarily? In this state, a person experiences profound relaxation and loses themselves in their thoughts.
When this condition is deliberately induced, it is called self-hypnosis.
SELF-HYPNOSIS TECHNIQUE FOR BEGINNERS
The technique we are going to employ is called the eye-fixation self-hypnosis. It is one of the simplest and most effective self-hypnosis techniques ever developed.
Before you begin, try and remove all distractions from around you and concentrate on your goal of self-hypnosis.
Step 1. Sit in a comfortable chair without crossing your legs and hands. Avoid heavy meals right before the session as it may leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable. Take off your footwear and make sure that you are wearing
comfortable clothing. Bottom line, get comfortable in a chair without crossing your arms and legs.
Step 2. Fix your gaze at a point on the ceiling and concentrate. Let your body relax and start repeated a suggestion similar to “My eyes are tired, I want to sleep now.”
Make sure you say this suggestion like you mean it, sounding
convincing and relaxing at the same time. If you do this right, your eyes will
soon start feeling tired. At this point, let your eyes close and take deep
breaths to relax further.
Step 3. Let your body relax and let it go limp like a rag doll on a chair. Then slowly, but intentionally start counting down from 10 to 0, telling yourself that with every number, you are becoming more relaxed. Stay in the relaxed state for a few moments and notice how you don’t even have to make an effort to relax your body. In fact, the less you try, the more you relax.
Step 4. After you’re ready to emerge, start counting from 1 to 10. Tell yourself that with each passing number, you become more and more aware of your surroundings.
Try this technique a few times and notice how you reach deeper levels of relaxation on every instance. Once you have perfected this technique, you can start introducing positive suggestions to yourself, which will help you improve in all areas of life.
Note that some people may feel drowsy or dizzy right after coming back to consciousness. This is normal and will pass after a few moments.
Pamela got it done…
So… We’ve been doing this stuff for a while now. So it’s pretty easy to see when, where and why people fail, in regards to taking up ‘fitness’.
There’s two main things to consider if you want to fix the ‘failing’.
#1 Your overall approach
#2 Sticking with a source that you trust, through thick and thin
That’s it. If you do that, you’ll win. Regardless of what ‘good’ fitness plan that you start.
Now… Let’s dig into the training aspect of #1 above. This is how you win.
You win, by taking a long term view from day one. With the intention of sticking to a plan for 6-18 months if you’re really hungry to ‘achieve’. And 1-5 years if you want to still have a life, whilst achieving. The later is more realistic for most people.
The long term training approach
This is specific to weight training and bodyweight workouts only. Which of course, is the type of training that will give you the quickest results if you want to grow muscle on certain body parts, or shred fat (And not shred weight… Which kills your results if you do). Check site Monicashealthmag.com
It’s all about strength progression
The plan is to always focus on this from day one. But that’s not always possible as a brand new trainee. Because it’s usually best to start on a 30 day trial, before heading into an official 6-18 month long term plan.
The 30 day trial is where you’ll learn everything about ‘you’ and build the foundation. Which means you’re actually learning how strong you are at this time. So it doesn’t make sense to focus on the ‘real’ strength progression process…
Once you do get into the groove of things, it’s all about learning what exercises work best for you (Not all exercises will).
This is important. Because a big part of strength progression, is knowing what exercises you’re going to progress to…
> Push ups on knees
> Push ups on feet
> Feet raised push ups
> Assisted pull ups
> Pull ups
> All exercises hanging in a pull up position (Such as hanging half leg raises)
That right there is where all the magic happens.
Because if you start successfully moving through the exercises. It means that your strength levels are going up.
If your strength levels are going up, it means that your body will start becoming leaner (Which is good for shredding and muscle building). Which also means that you are outpacing the rate at which your body adapts to change.
Outpacing the rate at which your body adapts to change, is how you keep your muscles guessing. That’s when the big physical changes happen.
That is the strength progression formula.
That’s why it’s always being hammered into your head to encourage starting on a long term plan from day one. And to not stop for the first 6 months.
It’s like when you take driving lessons. You’ll increase your chances of failure if you stop taking them in a consecutive fashion.
Also… Strength progression is usually an after thought when it comes to training, for most. So it’s something that one must focus on. That’s why long term trainees ‘win’. That’s how you go pro when it comes to getting results.
It’ll usually kick in by your 2nd month, with whatever training program you’re on.
Working out is hard, but that’s kinda the point.
Strenuous exercise is good for you, as your muscles get bigger and stronger the more you work them. Cardio reduces fat content, strength training is mostly weight based, and gym machines are a great combination of weight and endurance training.
Exercise increases the health and wellbeing of your body, often increases your life expectancy, and improves your quality of life as well, making it easily one of the most rewarding pastimes/activities.When designing your gym set up, a combination of a range of cardio equipment and a range of weight-based machines is a wise spread.
It’s important to remember cardio when planning your your gym setup, as many people forget the cardio and dive headlong into the weights as soon as the design process begins. Big muscles are great, and they indicate strength and hard work, but you’ll never be able to see them unless you use cardio to work away the surface layers of fat that conceal that muscle. Cardio also helps with improving heart health, so your overall well being, benefits from a bit of cardio.
You might want to have pronounced muscles, as many people do when they start working out.
The best way to achieve that goal is a by a series of weights, each exercise including a weight and a different muscle group. Shoulders, back, arms, chest, legs, forearms, core, all of these can be exercised with weights, and all of these become more pronounced muscle groups with longer-term and increasingly difficult weightlifting. Heavier weights with fewer repetitions equals more muscle growth, lighter weights with more repetitions equals more toned muscles. A combination of both is the ideal to aim for when designing your weight-based section of gym.
Machines are a wonderful invention of the modern world.
They take the space and work needed to do many different exercises and compress them down into one small area, saving space and many moving parts with the potential to go missing. Elliptical machines, cardio machines (such as exercise bikes and treadmills), and weight-based machines are all fine additions to any gym, and can drastically increase the number and the kinds of exercise you can do with a relatively small space.
Speaking of space, space is another thing you will need to consider when planning this gym.
Nobody wants to exercise in a broom closet, and your gym room should be long enough and wide enough to really allow for a wide range of movement on all sides. Make sure you can stride confidently for at least a few seconds in any one
direction, where possible. This means you have room to perform more complex exercises, like walking pushups or bear crawls.
Many non-exercise related things are crucial to make a gym viable.
How are you going to clean and/or deodorise the room? How are you going to remain hydrated while there? How are you going to play music, or cool down when it’s hot, or warm up when it’s cold? These are all often forgotten, and hurriedly fixed later on, but you can get ahead of them by dealing with them before they become an issue for future-you.
With these tips, your exercise palace can become a reality within months instead of years.
