I want to take this time to encourage some amazing people! These are the women who have worked so hard to train so many of you this year. It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to work with these amazing women. They are highly gifted in the way they inspire, motivate and push people to be their best. I love the fact that all of them have such great hearts for people. All these women have my utmost respect. They are models of integrity, perseverance and faith. Coach JC is so knowledgeable and does a killer Kettle class!!! Vanessa has had a busy year and had to cut back her classes but when she teaches, you can be sure she will kick your butt with a smile:) Bernadette is our newest addition and her energy is infectious! She’s extremely talented and ready to jump in to take more classes in 2013. Please join me in honoring these women!!!
1. Thursday- Yoga Day! I had a complete irrational fear of being upside down. I’ve been doing yoga for almost six years and it still makes me nervous. Headstands are really a mental challenge. Technically, it’s really not that hard but getting over the fear is the hard part. I had to keep practicing and I had to be OK about falling. It’s a good life lesson:))) Try it!!!
2. Food- Let’s not make food our master. You be in control of what goes in your body. Stay connected, mindful, engaged and present. Really make the effort to be in the moment and not let excuses get the best of you. Plan, plan, plan!!! This is the time of year where we just indulge and don’t think about it. Well, think about the consequences. It will be that much harder to lose in January:))) Just sayin’!
3. Mantra for the day: Make the Investment!!!
We are all given the same 24 hours in the day. How are you using it. Just like we need to be fully present to live in the moment and intentional about our food choices, we need to do the same with our time management. You will be busy! We’re all busy! Make your health and fitness a priority. Its non-negotiable. If you wait for perfect conditions, it will never happen. It’s going to be inconvenient. It will be too cold or too hot. It will be too early or too late. Whatever the excuses are, it’s time to STOP IT and make a decision! Learn to multi-task. Take your babies in the stroller and go for a walk, go for a walk with your spouse or friends. Whatever it is, figure out what works for you and do it. Train hard and be disciplined this week!
Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)
