It's that time of the year again, when we stew over the changes we would like to implement into our lives for 2012. Health and fitness seem to be at the top of the list nearly every year but unfortunately most people are unable to keep the long term commitment (for whatever the reason). So many things can easily interrupt your new found fitness schedule; career and family seem harder to juggle than you had imagined. That's where I come in. No gym, no equipment, no excuses. I will schedule your appointment and show up to location with all the equipment a
OK, I have a little rant. Some may get pissed off at what I have to say, yet others will agree. So here goes. America is going the way of the Greeks. We are slowly killing ourselves, and part of that is through political correctness. I mean America was founded on Christianity, yet we are told we must take it out of everything! Never mind that we "offend" all the Christians, just make sure you don't offend anyone else!!!
For anyone who was born and raised in the lovely Cali sun, or another climate like it, you know what I mean when I say WINTER SUCKS! It's dark outside when I get off of work? There goes my stress relieving trail runs...hello boring treadmill. And for those of you who are mumbling under your breath, "Just work out in the morning"...when it's 50 degrees in your room, getting out from under warm blankets is a LOT harder than it sounds.
So I was thinking about life! I know, kind of deep, but that's the way my brain works! Kind of scary, isn't it? Anyway, I recently went SCUBA diving, and loved it! I have wanted to go for a while, just never did it! What a mistake, I could have been doing it for years now, instead of just starting out. And so, I offer this to all of you.
It has been a great year . . . training, teaching boot camp and Yoganna, laughing and working with clients and friends . . . in short, just enjoying life! I'm going to be an expert on knee replacement rehab next month. I will have a new right knee in January. Guess I won't have an excuse to limp around any more. However, it did not keep me from bicycling, walking, aquacise, dancing (pathetically) and swimming. I plan to get back on track soon after my surgery.
Many women have been on more than a few fad diets and still have trouble keeping the weight off! Yo-Yo dieting is very unhealthy for your body and your mind. Consistent weight loss and weight gain cycling back and forth can cause feelings of failure and a loss in your own confidence. Instead of trying another fad diet for the new year opt for a healthier lifestyle by eating clean. And get a personal trainer to help coach you and motivate you through you workouts and food questions!
I have recently been wearing my Santa hat around. You know, red velvet, with the fluffy ball at the end. Anyway, I have been getting more compliments and smiles on this silly hat than I can say! And so, I was thinking about the little things!
What kind of results are you looking for? Is it a number on a scale? Body fat % loss? Cutting sugar out of your diet? Running a fast 5k? Crossing the finish line? Everyone's reasons for embarking on a fitness program is different. But we all embark on one with a goal in mind. Or at least we should.
