If you find yourself making broad statements such as,
"I want to lose some fat" or "I'll get more work done", then, I'm sorry to be blunt - but those aren't goals. Those are at best, a wish-list. 
An effective goal deals in specifics and it must have a deadline. Without those parameters, goals are powerless and ineffectual. They won't get you where you want to be.

If you're not setting effective goals, you're operating at a fraction of your true potential. Goals are that powerful when implemented correctly. Structured goal setting is a commonality between the top achievers in all fields. Top-level athletes and successful business owners alike often credit goal setting as a primary driver of their success.   
In today's Lean Body Coaching newsletter, Chuck Dertinger, an accomplished fitness and nutrition expert who holds a Masters Degree in Science, shares 9 fail safe strategies that you can utilize to create empowering goals.  Goals that will drive you to succeed in any walk of life.

The Baked Egg and
Vegetable Breakfast 

Breakfast, is arguably, the most important meal of the day. If your morning routine is to consume a coffee and a sugar-loaded cereal, from a nutritional perspective, you couldn't get a worse start to the day. 

Today's featured recipe solves the "morning-rush" problem. Prepare the recipe at a time that suits you. Separate the portions, wrap with plastic wrap and freeze until you need them.  

To re-heat, pop one portion in the microwave for 1 minute and enjoy a hearty meal at any time, without sacrificing taste or nutritional quality.

Each recipe provides 8 servings and each serving contains 370 Calories, 24 grams of Protein, 53 grams of Carbs and just 8 grams of Fat. 

Our all-new ISO Lean Pro, is perfect for athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts who demand the purest, highest quality protein available on the market.
Whey Better Protein!
It's also excellent for dieters looking to bump up their protein intake without any unnecessary calories, because it's carbohydrate and sugar-free with virtually no fat.

Just two scoops delivers a whopping 50 grams of pure Whey Protein Isolate,  2 grams of fat, zero carbs, zero Lactose - zero sugar and just 220 calories. 
Whey protein provides a large variety of benefits in addition to purely adding more protein to your diet.
Whey contains branched chain amino acids to repair muscle tissue and prevent muscle breakdown.  It also contains cysteine and lactoferrin, which helps protect your body from free radicals and boosts your immune system. 

Whey also raises your body's natural levels of glutathione, this antioxidant is responsible for proper immune system function.

Whether you need to increase your dietary protein intake or you just want to look after your health, ISO Lean Pro fits the bill.

How can I save a bad workout?

Today's "Ask Lee", comes from Jill in New York.

Hi Lee, I want to ask about motivation. I am a busy Mom of 2 and I also work 4 days a week. I keep finding myself entirely drained and my workouts suffer. I've even driven to the gym, parked the car and then returned back home again. 

I need some ways to stay motivated! Do you face this issue and can you help me?


Hi Jill, we've all been there, and you are certainly not alone. 

You walk into the gym, rack up a warm-up weight and it immediately feels heavy. Then every rep feels like somebodies adding extra resistance behind your back. Sound familiar?

So what do you do?

Well, you can throw in the towel and go home but you're creating an terrible precedent, one that teaches a pattern of failure.  

It's far better to follow through with the workout, even if you have to adapt it. It will build your confidence in your ability to get through something you doubted you could do. And, it will help translate positively into other areas in your life.  Whenever we find a way to succeed, we grow as individuals.

We've all regretted skipping a workout, but when was the last time you felt guilty for simply adapting or dropping the intensity a few points instead of just giving up? That's right - never.

Drop the weights, slow down the pace, and even swop out some of the tougher exercises. Adjust whatever variables you need to, so you can get through it and get something done. Don't be that quitter...you are better than that.

In addition, I strongly suggest you set goals. Our featured article today is all about goal Setting. If you have a goal, a target, it's far harder to turn away at the gym door. Goals help you through tough times, they focus your drive and train your brain to block out the excuses. The power of goal setting is incredible, it can turn average folks into powerhouses of determination.

In our Lean Body Challenge, every single winner or individual who placed highly,  had set very specific goals, it's those goals that kept them driving to the gym when there were a million excuses they could have used not to.

Lastly, if you just need a swift "kick in the rear" when training time rolls up, then try utilizing workout boosters like Labrada Super Charge  (see amazing customer reviews here).

1 scoop of Super Charge! will give your gym-mojo back, 2 scoops will turn you into SUPERWOMAN!

Until next time,  stay healthy and strong. 
Get lean, live lean!

Yours for a Lean Body,


Lee Labrada,

Founder & CEO Of Labrada Nutrition.
