WOW, life really is a balancing act! It seems like it has been forever since I have been able to sit down and post on my personal blog! The past few months have been absolutely insane, as I have been swamped and have been attempting to balance (at times not very well) graduate school, clients, new happenings at the studio, family stuff, and of course our crazy Clara! But, with 2 weeks off of school I now have time to catch my breath and catch up in life! I have spent this past week playing catch up at work and with friends; and next week hopefully I will be able to make some headway in getting ready for baby Foster.
Although, the past few months have been challenging, as I reflect on all I have learned and accomplished, I am filled with a sense of strength. I am here to tell you ALL that you can do anything you put your mind to, you just have to DO IT! There are 5 stages of change as identified by the STAGE Model, precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and finally, maintenance; when I work with my clients, I find that the action and maintenance stages are often the hardest. It is human nature to want a “quick fix” to weight loss and overall wellness; but, the truth is, good health and weight that stays off take time. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but diets and crazy amounts of exercise are just not the answer! Though such “action” may result in initial weight loss results (sometime dramatic), most diets are impossible to keep up, and end up effecting both your body and mind in negative ways. Taking action and making permanent lifestyle changes such as, implementing regular healthy exercise and healthy eating, lead to weight loss and let’s face it, happiness! People who exercise regularly and eat a BALANCED (everything in moderation) diet are happier than those who are overweight, don’t exercise, AND those that are starving themselves and exercising to exhaustion. Permanent lifestyle changes lead to easier action and maintenance. Though changes may not happen overnight or even in a week or a month, staying the course is key and results will come….I promise!
Being “skinny” is not always the answer; in fact, it rarely is! Finding a healthy weight and body size for YOU is what is important. Do not compare yourself to your best friend or your sister or the actress you idolize; compare yourself to you. It is important to love yourself and your body; be good to yourself, enjoy life, eat, exercise, and just be healthy. Want to learn how to love YOU and feel your best?
