Let It Go

 

Whats holding you back? Is it doubt, fear, criticism? Sit with your thoughts/ feelings, figure it out . Grab a notebook and write, use this period for self discovery. Ask yourself the tough questions, re-discover yourself. Once you have accomplished this, release all the negativity, fear etc , let it go.

 

 

 

Believe in yourself , know you can accomplish anything you put your heart into. Yes, it will take hard work and planning and maybe some research depending on the circumstance, but just know you can do it.  Yes, you can do it!

I don’t know who needs to hear this right now but I am hoping it resonates with you.

Feel free to comment and share your experience.

Stay safe and be well.

Rest, Recover and Heal

We are all staying home due to COVID 19, and whether you have always worked out, but now you are amping up your  “training”  or maybe you are just starting a workout plan with all the time you have at home.  Please, schedule rest days into your routine. Stretch and  foam roll or if you don’t have a foam roll, balls will work as well.  Pushing yourself and trying to workout hard every day is not wise.  This will go a long way in preventing injuries. Rest, recover and give your body time to heal and grow.

 

This current situation is quite stressful  give yourself some grace. Be well, be safe and stay home.

 

 

 

 

Today is a New Day

When it comes to our health and well being we each have the ability in ourselves to turn our health around.  Forget about what happened yesterday, today is the day to take one step in the right direction for your health and well being. And I am not just talking about “health” pertaining to diet and exercise, but this also includes your mental health and emotional health as well as your association.

Take ownership of your health because no one can do it for you.

January 2020

Have you been bombarded with emails or notifications to sign up for challenges to start the year off right? Or you have signed up for a few different ones and not sure where to start.  This creates a lot of  mental “noise”, being bombarded with so much all at once.

 

A tip to help sort this out,  choose the one that resonates with you the most and commit to finishing that challenge. Save the rest and revisit those at a later date.

This year and the ones to come just show up for yourself consistently. 

 

Being More Productive

To do lists , so much to do so little time. How to get it all done without feeling overwhelmed?  I don’t know about you but at one time I had sticky notes and to do  lists everywhere.  I have even  used napkins and envelopes to jot down my thoughts/ ideas. There has to be a better a way, an easier way.

I decided to buy a notebook, I gathered all my lists, wrote out  all my “to dos ”  down in the notebook and tackled them. However, I still felt overwhelmed. Then I heard about a technique called the Pomodoro Technique. 

Basically, you set a timer for 25 minutes  and tackle an item on your list, once the timer goes off you take a short break and repeat.  I get antsy or fidgety if I sit for too long, but by using the timer and knowing I have a short time to finish task, I am able to stay focused and and actually cross items off my list. I have to say that is a wonderful feeling.  Ahhh the feeling of accomplishment.

How do you get more done?

Ten or Thirty Minutes

I always plan or write out my workouts for  the week on a Sunday night. I have been doing this for many years now.  This has kept me committed, accountable and focused. However, every once in a while  I lack that the motivation to workout.

 

 

I am sharing this to let you know that yep we ( trainers) have those days as well. I completely understand the ” lack of motivation” or “the just not feeling it today” mood.  I get it! I also know, that sometimes just pushing yourself a little (with in reason, obviously if you are sick then rest) and  by committing to exercising for ten or thirty minutes that day your  mind  and body will thank you and, you will feel so much better.

 

 

These shorter sessions can be as simple as going for a walk or dancing in your living room. They don’t have to be anything fancy, the key is to move. Remember movement heals.

Let me know in the comments some of  your tips to get your workout in when its “one of those days”.
