Be Free and practice Moderation for Balance
“Wow! That cheesecake looks amazing! But I don’t think I can have any…I’m on a diet.”
We have all caught ourselves saying those words before, but what happens next? We either end up having a bite or a whole slice. Or we end up saying “no” I’ll be good and walk away, but wishing we could have had just a little taste. We all have those certain foods or pleasures we love to indulge in, but we can’t because we are conditioned to think negatively about it. These are tough decision, but I’m here to tell you that the secret is moderation. The term itself simply means “avoidance of extremes or excess”. Even while I am typing this, I laugh, because Lord knows I struggle with this often. So what do I do? What can we all do? Take a bite of cheesecake, go run wild one night with your friends, take a day off from work and devices. Enjoy the moments and savor the next but know this can’t be a daily thing. Know your limits and know when to say, ”no more” or “I’m finished.” The shame, blame, guilt game is not helpful and doesn’t bring you happiness. So be easy on yourself and know one meal isn’t going to make you fat, just like one workout isn’t going to make you thin. It’s a long journey… so along the way its ok, veer off the path and smell the roses, take a bite, and then get back on the path.
Get out of your comfort zone and MOVE
We have all seen the commercials or the books that say “lose 10 pounds in 10 days” or the 7 minute workout that’s so easy anyone can do it at anytime in the comfort of our couch with a bag of chips. Well, I’m here to tell you that anything that has the words “easy” and “in minutes” is a lie and will not work. You might see a small result here or there but you’re not going to get the results you are really looking for. When you are in the comfort of your home, are you really going to push yourself to the max for the gains you really desire? Workouts should not be easy or comfortable. You need to get outside of your comfort zone and see what you can do. Think outside the box, then jump over it and even around it. Whatever it takes for you to get going, just do it, and just MOVE. Always challenge yourself! Defy what your mind is telling you and do that extra rep, set, or burst. Your body will thank you for it and show off your hard work.
The New Year is your time to BE Awesome and MOVE.
Here we are again starting off a new year with intentions and wishful thinking on how we want to look and feel. We promise resolutions and create expectations. Well, I am on a realistic path this year. Here is my affirmation:
“This is who I am just for today. I move my body and mind towards my desires and I get back in return what I put out.”
Tips for Successful Resolutions:
1. Make short term goals
2. Don’t overwhelm yourself
3. Make them realistic
4. Create a fun game for your workouts
5. Increase your mind body connection to decrease and increase FLOW
Here is an example of what most people think and say. And if you have read down to here, you might get an ab workout from laughing.
“I like who I am and I will force others to feel the same about me. I drink a lot, a swear a lot, and I think I know everything.”
Instead let’s go with the old adage:
“I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it, people like me.” Stuart Smiley
Move your body every day, eat what fuels you, and give back love. You ROCK always.
