Here we are at the Christmas time of year with many holidays to celebrate and prepare for with loved ones. The stress level can quickly become overwhelming for many reasons, personal and physical. Please remember that doing only a few minutes of an exercise/healthy lifestyle program will help get you the needed energy and motivation to accomplish the list of chores...with a smile. Give everyone you meet a smile and it just may be the catalyst they need to continue and put things in perspective. All you have to do is get started for five minutes of your favorite activity and do your stretches. If you are recovering from an injury, make sure to follow doctor's orders so this too shall pass. Give yourself a break to truly enjoy your life; isn't that why we exercise in the first place?
Are you finding it harder and harder to stick to the rules of your healthy lifestyle program? No problem, we can fix that.
All you have to do is ask yourself one question: Can I do that for the rest of my life? If the answer is yes, then go for it. If the answer is not in a million years, then let it go. If the answer is maybe, put it on the to do list for later.
When you find yourself slipping, it is time to regroup and make one change that you can stick to for the rest of your life. Look at the positive gains you have made, maybe keeping track of them in a gratification journal.
Do not dwell on the negative isses of falling off the bandwagon; rather, this is the time to grasp the opportunity of learning something. What happened and why, what can be done about it, should I continue or let this go?
The take away is: don't worry about the future, plan for it; don't dwell in the past, learn from it; and always enjoy the present, a gift from you know Who.
No, this is the year for a revolution; no resolution to lose, drop, improve the weight.
I am staying on the track of a healthy lifestyle and the rest follows...yes, if need be, the weight; not to mention, everything else that may need changing and/or improving. You name it, the healthy choices will make the undesirable issues easier to handle, if not disappear.
If general knowledge were the answer to the obesity epidemic, why are we not seeing any positive results? What is wrong? What really needs to change?
How about finding the right person to work with? Be it a personal trainer, doctor, nutritionist or other professional who will help you get the results you desire. Now, what are your goals?
I hope you have the type of goals that are reaching for health, not only looks. Ditch the mirror and be happy with your Maker's beautiful artwork that is truly one of a kind.
Okay, no problem...off to find that one of a kind solution for each and every, one of a kind client.
So...how have you all been doing with your health and fitness programs? Believe it or not, I still have times that require me to slow down and read my own blogs, as well as other sources. I am a person, too, who deals with life getting in the way of "plans".
My motivation mostly comes from all the wonderfully diverse clients and their families who have kindly entered my life...truly, something I am and always will be grateful for...appreciative and beautiful people who lift me up with their accomplishments.
I thank each and every one of you who have worked with and helped NAPS 2 B Fit...Customized Health + Fitness Programs, to continue the mission of restoring a healthy society. Please be sure you all remember to take care of yourselves, that you may enjoy and take care of your loved ones.
Wishing everyone the best of health.
First, stay in on mischief night.
Second, scratch number one.
Go outside for a walk,
Stay away from your temptations,
Enjoy what makes you happy,
And please remember to stick with your balanced exercise program, which will help you make better decisions and pull you through the rest of the holidays coming up.
