I’m here to inspire you to be your best self possible. Although my business is personal training I encompass mind, body, and spirit because each relates to the other. I committed myself to health and fitness over 25 years ago after both parents fell ill physically and mentally which in turn challenged their bodies, minds and spirits. It was a long road & I saw how important it is to care for your body via exercise, nutrition & stress reducing techniques i.e. meditation. I became passionate about self care & I hope to motivate & educate you on many health issues such as hormones, inflammation, low energy, starting a program & how to stay motivated.
In this blog I want to share a couple habits I have found to be incredibly helpful on my fitness journey.
I start each day off with drinking 8-10 ounces of water first thing – YES, even before my coffee. Your total body water percentage is an important measure of good health. The human body is made up of 55-65% water. Water is the primary building block of cells. It’s needed to metabolize both protein and carbs, it lubricates the joints, and flushes waste. These are only a few reasons why water is so important!
I live by the 80/20 rule which means 80% of the time I eat incredibly clean: fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats. 20% of the time I eat whatever I want but in moderation – YES, even alcohol … in moderation.
I make exercise a priority – non-negotiable! And I know what you’re thinking, “It’s easy for you because as a trainer you’re doing it all day long” - but the truth is it’s just as hard for me to find time to fit in my own workouts as anybody. What I do is schedule my workouts as if I am scheduling a meeting with my boss. You'd never skip a meeting with your boss, right?!
