Yes, we trainers are human and have experiences just like you called life.
M super fast metabolism i my genetics.st of us have to pay attention to our lifestyle and food choices in order to maintain what we want from our body. I have to schedule my own workouts as I do not work out with my clients. I have to be mindful of food choices and daily habits
So today I thought share a recent experience of mine whe life got a little stressful I ignored myself so yes I gained unwanted weight.
My first clue w signals from my body y knees and lower back began to hurt feeling ti ed and my workouts falling to the wayside. clothes a little tighter honestly a lot tighter and be shrinking in dryer. Good gosh I am so human!
I realized I had not been on the scale for months! So off I went jumping on thinking a few pounds ut NOOOO a whole lot more than a few!
sham myself for how could I let this happenirst reaction was to beat myself up
I have a healthy life with so much knowledge staying fit and healthy hat s wrong with me! This needs to come off NOW!!!! I won’t go on to what other thoughts raged through my head but I stopped. My own words that I say so often to others came to my mind be kind, be compassionate and appreciate your body it’s a blessing. Be patient ou got this.
So to start my way back to where want to be, I highlighted all the wonderful things that my body does for me, such as carry me on amazing hikes, hearing and seeing the world around me he list went on. Then I began to see what I had been through in the last year that set me off course.
The stress of caring for the love of my life through cancer treatment, expanding my business, moving houses, making major life decisions, loss of my mom and its toll on me, getting older, worry my aging Dad and tepmom. ach one of these moments I strong and happy but maybe deep down it all added up I am human
So my first step to get a handle on my unwanted weight was to analyze my daily behaviors.
control over and what I d hen focus letting go of what I d and focus on what I c control and live life in the present.so first I made a list of what I ha
I joined a yoga class once a week to more calm my body and mind.
disconnected led me to my next step.my first couple of yoga classes
a plan of what I wanted from my body , a schedule with cues to keep myself on track.uil
With this in place I’m more mindful of portions and eating only when hungry I realized that I had been using food to comfort and distract myself. Yes, I know better but it s so weird how I had ignored myself.
My own workouts becom a priority more focused and frequent.
I again repeated to myself ok today is a new day I noticed taking charge chang my behaviors wards a outcome that I want for my body.
I love my body!!! I care about me!!!
