I recently read a fantastic book: “BALANCE In Search of the Lost Sense” by Scott McCredie which reinforces my believe that our body is an amazing machine, a super computer that is capable for making adaptations to the challenges we place upon it even at advanced age(90+ years)!
Let’s face it…sitting at a desk all day is no fun. Not only is it no fun, it is dangerous! Yikes…sorry to lay that one on you but it’s true. There are as many health risks associated with sitting all day as there are for smoking and being over-weight. Wow…I just brought the mood down a ton. But wait! There are things you can do.
For the past two years, I have challenged my friends and clients to exercise every day during the month of December. Everyone has really enjoyed the challenge, so I decided to create a challenge for each month during 2015.
Once again, it's that time of year when we are thinking "New Years Resolutions". Now that I have lowered my LDL cholesterol and triglycerides to healthy ranges, I'm looking to change things up a bit. So in 2015, I will be participating in the Challenge Loop. I will be posting a challenge and encouraging others to join me. It's always more fun to do a challenge with other people. This time, there are no New Years Resolutions - just a challenge to try something different and see if it can be done. Who's with me?
When the dance and fitness worlds collide, four beautiful principles come together!Comfortable: absence of pain and distress, free of anxiety, feeling of ease and securityChallenge: full use of your abilities and resources during trying but stimulating situationsCompassion: awareness of the needs of others and a desire to alleviate a person's sufferingConfidence: trust, faith, and self-assurance; a belief in your own abilitiesWhat are the senses of comfortable challenges?
Over the next 33 days I will be taking you on a journey.This journey will be a daily documented walk through my life of exercise and nutrition. Today, as well as days 2 & 3 will be more about the preperation and set-up to help me get ready to tackle the next 30 days. I do not normally look at my nutrtion and exercise as "30 day challenges", however that is what I am asking of you. Challenge yourself to be as good as you can be for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days you will see results.
I’m trying something new. Some of my clients asked for a challenge, so I created Healthy Habits Challenges for the rest of this year. The first challenge starts this month. We’re doing a 21-day AB Challenge and a Water Challenge. Why not a 30 day challenge? Because it takes 21 days to create a habit and most people fall off after 2 weeks, so let’s see if 3 weeks works.I’ve posted the 21-Day AB Challenge here and on my other social media sites:
