No Worries

How many times have we heard that expression!

I believe we really need to take those words to the bank.  So many of us stress over so many things.  If we could just learn not to freak out over things we would all be in much better shape mentally and physically!

I spent an hour on the phone with a friend last night talking them off the ledge.  The reason they were freaked out is that they had lost 23 lbs and on Easter they ate a bunch of candy.  They got so freaked out it really took me an hour to calm them down.

This is crazy...many of us need to realize you sweat the big stuff not the little stuff.

Focus on the issues that matter....a few extra calories in a day or a missed work out are not something to obsess over.  Long term your concern for being in shape or losing weight should have to do with health....if you are always stressed you will have Blood Pressure issues.

If you are always thinking or concerned about what is going in your mouth  you will be intolerable.

This time when I say No Worries I mean it.........let it go!

Many of us think that habits have a bad connotation.

I current study showed 40-45% of our daily activities are habits and many are not negative.

The good news is that when you are trying to lose weight or get in shape this study helps.

What this study has identified is that every habit has a trigger and some sort of reward.

Once you identify the trigger that sets a habit and how you feel rewarded you can either keep it up or find a way to remedy the situation if it is a negative habit.

Take a look at your daily drivers and try and figure out what is negative and then work to understand what triggers that behaviour. If you can figure that out you can then work to remedy the issue.

The Outdoors are Calling

There is one really cool thing when the weather starts to get better.  You can really change up your routine.  It is so nice to have a few minutes and to head outside and do something different.

so many of us get used to the indoors all through the winter.  Now is the time to think about things you can do outdoors this year....BIKE RIDES, GOLF, SWIMMING, HIKING....So many options and such little is your call my friends decide what you want to do with your time and jump in and embrace it!
