09:26 Rest is vital. Jen trains 5 days a week.
10:13 Jen does in home personal training.
10:32 The workout isn’t everything. More goes into fitness and wellness.
11:57 We erroneously think that we can eat or drink anything we want if we go to the gym and work it off.
13:16 Working harder physically doesn’t necessarily produce what you want if you are not sleeping or are stressed, with physical manifestations.
14:08 The food reward for workout expenditure theory does not work. Cardio can increase your appetite, but sometimes it is habit driven.
16:32 Weight training has a much more positive impact upon hormones, brain function, body weight and chemical balance.
18:10 Lifting weights is cardio. Everyone should do step ups. Walking is good for everyone. Not everyone should be jumping.
21:16 Adaptation happens in rest.
24:23 Intermittent fasting has many health benefits, but it is tricky hormonally for women.
27:05 Personal experience is everything. Discovering your lifestyle that makes you feel at your best takes a long time.
29:05 Enjoy the process of transformation. We give up too soon. We are impatient with results. Get realistic.
31:06 Jen journals her workouts. She makes shifts intuitively.
33:05 Keep the momentum. If you don’t feel like doing a big workout, do a small one.
