Mliae´s Week 3 update

I have to say that I am very proud of this girl.  After a mentally tough week with the weight fluctuations and despite all the stress, she continues doing her workouts and adjusting to the diet and we begin to see results, we lose body fat and we gain lean muscle.

The least known part of personal training is that sometimes we have to act as therapists and focus more on the mental aspects of the client rather than on diet or exercise. I know that everyone wants to do a week of diet and exercise and see instant results, but that just does not work that way. And we have to take the time to explain and make them understand it.

This week has been hard for her, even suffering from migraines she has managed to keep training and maintain her diet.

Please be nice and leave a spirited comment on her blog. via Flabby-Assed to Fabulous with Chape! Week 3 Update

  1. That’s an awesome thing to witness, the resilience of others and to help someone realize that they have the tenacity to get through life and their workout!

    1. Mliae is an inspiration to all of us :D Working with her is a pleasure. She makes no excuses despite her health problems and she progresses every week, even if the scale doesn´t reflect all the progress ;)
      Big hugs,
      David

  2. Mliae’s persistence is downright inspiring. I’ll have to head to her blog and read more about her journey.

    1. Nothing can stop her 💪 Surgery, migraines… It doesn’t matter! I’ve never seen someone like her before 😀

  3. Wow, thanks for your kind words and all the inspiration from your comment feed! You are a great therapist, as well as trainer 😉 Keep the motivation coming & I’ll keep persisting! Hugs! 😀

    1. I’m just telling the truth 😀 You’re doing great despite all the inconveniences. I would not train with a migraine 😉 but you did! Just focus on drinking water and we’ll be fine 😀
      Hugs!!

      1. Yessir! :D

  4. Hi Dave I’ve nominated you for an award due to your amazing content. Please continue to post more about your clients and your own life, it’s great inspiration. https://garagegymuk.wordpress.com/2018/01/26/the-entertainer-blogger-award-ive-had-a-nomination/ Thank you again!

    1. Hello, Bob! Thank you so much for your kind words and the nomination :D I don´t have these award and I hate to say this but I went award-free a long time ago: https://chape.fitness/category/award-free-blog/ Let me explain to you why. I received a lot of awards, so many awards, and I was spending most of my time doing awards and not writing about fitness :D So I had to make that painful decision. Awards are very fun but also time-consuming (if you want to do them right). I will think another way to compensate you and drive more traffic to your blog ;) I.e. would you like to do a guest post? or would you prefer an interview so I could introduce you to my followers?
      I truly appreciate the nomination and I hope you understand my reasons to stop doing them.
      Big hugs,
      David

      1. I totally understand and I can see why you stopped getting involved with them with the amount of traffic I bet you receive! I’d love the opportunity to do a guest post thank you!

      2. Thank you so much for your understanding 😀
        I will email you this weekend about the guest post 😉

  5. The mental/emotional component to health (and weight control) is equally important to diet and exercise. If we are out of balance emotionally, it is usually just a matter of time until the physical ramifications are experienced (namely falling back to old patterns of eating and missing days of exercise.)

    1. Hello, Doctor J! As usual, you nailed it! Thanks for backing up me on this. Many people who are not on a fitness journey do not understand the importance of the emotional part of the process ;)
      Big hugs,
      David

      1. Love your work and appreciate how difficult it is to get people to HELP THEMSELVES with guidance from professionals like yourself.

      2. Thank you SO MUCH!! You’ve made my day 😀

  6. Good for her. I am sure you will keep her well motivated.

    1. You can bet I will 👌
