It takes courage to make lifestyle changes and faith to overcome our obstacles. My hope is that by sharing my personal and professional experiences with you, we can both be courageous in our journeys of faith and fitness!

Healthy M.E. 15/7

I was thinking (I know…don’t worry…it didn’t hurt.) I am always trying to encourage clients that every little bit adds up and sometimes, little bits is all that we have available. Well, I was feeling like I needed to practice what I preach a little. I have been able to have 3-4 intentional and focused workouts/week. I was used to working out 5-6 days/week and sometimes, I’d workout for 2 hours on a couple of those days. I am learning about “the journey” which includes seasons; seasons of rest, seasons of training, seasons of learning and seasons of gaining. I am in a season of learning and I am fighting the “perfection infection” which is the drive to be perfect (or appear to be.) I am learning a new understanding of health as a whole…not just eating healthy and working out, but gaining a deeper reason WHY I do those things. My body is just the travel system of who I really am. It does not declare who I am nor does it define who I am. I won’t go too far into this because my point to this blog post was to invite you to meet with me on this portion of my journey. In times past, I wouldn’t have been satisfied with a 20 minute workout. But, on my days at home with the kids, that is sometimes, all I have. So, when I was thinking, I came up with an idea of commitment.  I want to commit to being good to my body everyday with movement. I’ll have 3-4 intentional workouts focused on strength gains and cardiovascular improvements. On my other days, I want to listen to my body and give it 15 minutes of what it needs. I can commit to 15 minutes.  It might be that it needs a wake up with a cardio blast. It might need 15 minutes of stretching on my foam roller. It might need 15 minutes of yoga.  I’m sure some days when I’m feeling sassy, I might do a 15 minute tabata workout and just push until I can’t push any  more. I want to do this to honor my body, this gift I have been given and view movement and exercise as more than a means to a goal.

Will you join me? I will post on Facebook what I do each day to honor this commitment and ask you to do the same. That’s it. Simple, but hoping this is another way for you and I to become healthier as a whole.

healthy lifestyle, move everyday
