We often do not realize it, but the most serious diseases are often the quietest. When we stop paying attention to our bodies, disregard our family history of diseases, or start making choices that we know are not healthy, we are doing harm to ourselves. But at the same time, there is no way for us to be able to constantly monitor our health and vitals on a daily basis; especially since we have lives to lead.
My mind feels all aflutter. It is bouncy-like and trying to connect things that struck me in 2013. Like jumping on a trampoline and trying to grab all the balls in the air and holding them together as one. So please hang with me and let me work through some thoughts that have been twirling in my head. Maybe after we both ponder we can help each other move forward.Throughout this year of reading and learning and listening and praying these phrases popped to the top:"What rules my heart, rules my behavior."
My PEOPLE...how are you? I have to say, it does seem like I'm having a conversation with myself most of the time but I guess this is true until someone reads it. Today I want to touch on what I like to call "Fitness Alliances". What is a Fitness alliance you ask? Its people, places or things that remind you or encourage you to remember that health and wellness are now a PRIORITY in your life. Again I go back to the "know it all attitude". I am guilty of this my damn self.
Your New Year’s Resolution was to get healthy and fit? Now What?
Here are 5 ways to implement small changes this week to help you achieve your goals of getting healthy and fit.
1. Learn 3 new healthy recipes.
2. Bring lunch everyday to work instead of buying.
3. Go to the gym at least 3 days.
4. Put your week’s workouts in your calendar and be specific. Example: Monday: 6:00am Gym: 40 minutes cardio on treadmill, Tues: Pilates mat class 6:00pm.
5. Tell the world.
With the Holiday Season in the past and all of us moving into the New Year, desperately attempting to stick to our respective New Year’s resolutions, sleep might be the last on our list. We are back to work, back to school, back to the daily routine and back to our respective training schedules. In case we did not have yet any training schedules for this year a week ago, the chances are, now we do – as a result of the resolutions we make around January the 1st… So, just a quick note: don’t get lost in all that craziness and do get some rest.
