From December 2012
I love yoga. I love eating vegetables and trying new healthy recipes. I love a great workout and working up a sweat. It is important to me that I make sure my family is healthy and happy and my home is clean and organized.
If you need advice about how to eat healthier; I am the person to ask. If you want encouragement and motivation to meet your health goals; give me a call, I will be your cheerleader and coach. If you are stressed out and overwhelmed with life, I bet I can calm you with my yoga or breathing exercises.
I love what I do!
I love how it works!
But I don't always follow my own advice.
I have a 2 pound bag of M&M's I keep on my dresser in the bedroom. My whole family knows it is there and that it is MINE! I snack from it a couple times a day sometimes, and other times I may go weeks without a dip into that tempting bag of chocolate yumminess. I teach yoga 2-3 days during the week, but I don't always practice on my own. I have great advice to keeping a tight budget, an organized house and the kids happy and healthy. But my house is a mess right now and my budget isn't exactly balanced. Sometimes I skip breakfast or only drink coffee in the morning. Sometimes I pick up a 10 pack of tacos from Taco Bell for a quick dinner on a lazy night.
What is my point? My point is, that I don't judge my friends, my clients, or strangers when it comes to health. But you can judge me. I do not follow all of my eating rules all the time. I do not work out every single day. I feel guilty when I eat 2 servings of dessert and I know I will feel sick from it later. But I make mistakes, I get tempted and I lose my discipline. Want to know what else I do? I FORGIVE myself for it EVERY TIME! I know that if I feel guilty, if my temptation wins, that I am still focused on my health. If I wasn't, I would NOT feel guilty. So what advice does this imperfect trainer have for you?
Forgive yourself. Don't deprive yourself. Enjoy being healthy; it feels good........
