Realize That You Are Deserving Of All That You Desire

I was recently asked by one of my clients, “What do you think is your most common request when women enroll in your wellness programs? Do they want smaller hips, flatter abs, more defined arms?” After some thought I said no. These might seem like common requests, but the truth is very different.  Women come to me because they want to feel a certain way. How is it possible that on Wednesday you feel thin and by Friday you feel fat?? Your weight has not changed, but your thoughts have. How can we change the way we are thinking so that we will feel better about ourselves? Whatever the feeling you are trying to capture whether it is strength, confidence, youth, or joy it all starts with your thoughts. Isn’t it true that life is all about how you feel as you travel along your path?  So how can we change the way we think in order to get the desired result?? We need to shift our attention to what is real and what is true and forget about all of the rest.

 

I will tell you what I tell every one of my clients, no one is overweight because they are hungry. I laughed when one client said that she had not felt a hunger pang for the last 10 years. Why couldn’t she realize her weight loss goals??

 

What we need to realize is that there are many factors that contribute to our weight issues: stress, poor diet, and inactivity all play a roll. My feelings are that the single greatest contributor to women today being overweight is that they simply don’t put themselves first. Why? Why aren’t we deserving of the excellent care that we give to our children? Our spouse? Or career? Who said, “If you neglect your most important need, that of self care and self respect, we will better serve others?” How could we possibly be of any service to others, when our foundation is weak?  We as mothers are responsible for setting the example for the whole family. For the most part we are buying the food, preparing most of the meals and setting the entire schedule for the whole family. Why shouldn’t we have success if we institute a positive lifestyle change? Believe me moms if you use the proper techniques when introducing something new in the home everyone will follow.

 

So how do we make some subtle change that will lead to remarkable positive advances?

  1. Start the day on a positive note. Try a book of quotes that empower you to make the changes you desire. Post your daily quote somewhere on your desk where you will see it often. This will help redirect you when you slide off track.
  2. Make small changes at home regarding meal planning and healthy activities. Try adding one new food a week, maybe a mango, or a spaghetti squash. Have the kids help prepare the meal or snack with you, they will be more likely to eat foods that they are involved in preparing. If they don’t like the new cuisine, don’t lose hope, keep on trying some children need multiple exposures to a new food before they will try or like it.
  3. Make activity time a fun time. Who said you have to do a workout video or go to the gym to get some exercise? Take the kids outside after dinner and play a game of basketball, tag, tennis, or walk to the park and play on the equipment as a family. You will be surprised at how enjoyable and therapeutic this time can be for all involved.

4.Take the time to get quiet with your thoughts and ask yourself the question “What needs to happen to make today a success?” Listen for what comes up and then follow through. No one knows what you need better than you!

5.Reward yourself for a job well done. No matter how small your accomplishment may seem, give yourself a big pat on the back. When is the last time you really gave yourself praise for making the necessary changes to reach your goal? Once a week or month give yourself a bigger reward like a new book, a massage, or evening out with friends. Realize that there is no dress rehearsal in life….stop waiting for change to find you. Make the decision to go after all that you desire right now!

Deep Condition Your Hair Naturally

Nobody has perfect hair, especially in the winter. Our hair gets, course, dry, thin, and frizzy. Our daily conditioner helps, but it is not always enough. With all the product that we put in our hair each day combined with the heating tools we use it can wreak our hair. Deep conditioning allows the hair to really soak so it is much more effective than a simple in shower condition. There are thousands of different deep conditioning products ranging inexpensive to extremely pricey. Often, these products contain many chemicals that we don’t necessarily want, or more importantly, need, in our hair. In my opinion, if you can go natural, do it. Coconut oil is one of the best oils you can use to deep condition your hair. Coconut oil contains many proteins not found in other hair oils. Its low molecular weight helps it to seal the hair, which helps it retain its natural moisture, and reinforces the hair fiber, making it stronger. There are also helpful E and K vitamins that boost hair and scalp health. The antibacterial and moisture properties in the coconut oil protect the scalp against itchiness and infections, helping hair stay healthy and dandruff free. So, let’s get started!

You will need about two hours (give or take how long it takes your hair to dry), organic coconut oil, one bowl, a blow dryer, shower cap, and (optionally) rosemary and lavender essential oil.

Rosemary oil is good for avoiding dandruff, encourages hair growth, and strengthens and nourishes the hair follicles.

Lavender oil is slightly antibacterial but also helps improve penetration for the oils.

–       Wash your hair with shampoo and let it air dry

–       Scoop out your coconut oil in the smaller bowl, I recommend about ½ cup

Bonus: add 4 drops each of rosemary and lavender

–       Massage oil into your dry hair starting at the bottom where it is most dry, use less getting closer to the roots

**AVOID SCALP**

–       Once you’ve finished applying the oil to all of your hair, put a shower cap over it

–       Leave the shower cap on for at least 30-40 minutes

Bonus: Blow dry your hair over the shower cap for about 10 minutes to increase effectiveness

–       Once the time is over, shampoo your hair to remove the oil (you might need to shampoo twice) and condition using your regular conditioner

Bonus: I recommend applying a small dime sized amount of oil to the very tips of your hair afterwards

I recommend deep conditioning your hair every other week during the colder months, or at least once a month.

Do You Need To Change Your Workout Routine?

One of the more common struggles that my clients have told me was that when they just worked out by themselves or at the gym, they didn’t know what to do. They didn’t have a routine, or did have one, but were doing the same one over and over again. Doing the same routine every single week is eventually going to become easier and easier for you. However, this isn’t good. Repeating a routine will become easier, but it will also cause you to burn less calories and lower your results. You will start to plateau much quicker than if you continue to switch up your routine. The body adapts quickly, switching up your routine will keep things challenging, producing results.

Some good indications that your routine needs to change is if the results are no longer coming, your routine bores you, or it no longer seems challenging. Adding variety into your workouts can come in many different ways. You can change speed, weight, distance, time, elevation, introduce different exercises, drop sets, etc. Keeping yourself challenged throughout your workouts will make the results come.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal Affective Order or SAD is a type of depression that’s related to changes in the seasons. Most often, it starts mid-to-late fall and continues into winter. Many people suffer from a decrease in energy and an increase in moodiness. Although this disorder is common, it is incredibly preventable. The issue is that the causes to the symptoms are not often recognized.

One of the main reasons why people suffer from this disorder is the significant decrease in outside activity. Not only do people experience a decrease in fresh air but also in sunlight as well. The reduced level of sunlight in winter and fall disrupt your body’s internal clock or circadian rhythm. A drop in sunlight causes a slight drop in serotonin, a brain chemical that affects mood. A change in season also affects melatonin, which is involved in sleep patterns and your mood. When this balance is shifted, you can experience a decrease in the amount of sleep you get. Aside from the science of it, sunlight and fresh air simply uplifts your mood. A sudden change in this can trigger depression.

So, how do we prevent this? A big part of prevention is mental. Long, warm summer days being spent at the beach turn into short, cold, sunless days being spent at work. It is easy to get caught in a funk. Next time you are feeling this way try to think along the lines of, “the weather does not affect my mood” and “there are special and unique activities I can find joy in with each season”.

Start exercising and taking the time to be outside. Even if it’s only taking a quick ten-minute walk during the day, believe it or not it can significantly change your mood. Exercise increases neurotransmitters, endorphins and endocannabinoids, which improve your mood and can ease feelings of depression.

How to Stay on Top of Your Diet and Exercise

Although it is easy to say that you want to start dieting and exercising, starting and continuing the practice is often a different story. You know the results that you want, but still, it is hard when changes aren’t consistently appearing before your eyes. However, though you cannot see these changes, they are coming about through every healthy habit you pursue. You must keep this fact, and many others, in your head if you wish to fully complete your goals.

First, it is vital to set realistic goals. It is common to fantasize your body in different ways, but it is necessary to realize what goals you can accomplish and the amount of time it will take to accomplish those goals. Next, make a plan. Make an effort to know what you need to do to accomplish those goals if that consists of making a list of foods you can/can’t eat, exercising a certain number of days a week or a specific amount of hours a day. Now that you have that plan, how can you make sure you stick to it? Set reminders on your phone, make lists, and make charts. Setting a reminder on your phone to maybe go for a run that day is not solely to remind you but also to make sure you do it. Take advantage of your phone to be your motivator, if you set it to remind you every hour of the day to go running after work, it might just motivate you to do that. Also, it can be very satisfying to mark something off on a list such as eating a certain amount of vegetables a day. Additionally, it is incredibly helpful to know what things and what people will help you and hurt you during this journey. If you constantly eat lunch with a coworker who eats junk food everyday, you might want to try a different lunch partner for the time being. If you watch a certain show that makes you crave bad foods stay away from that show. When I wanted to make it a goal of mine to go running at least five days a week, I made a specific playlist for myself to pump myself up for my run. I would play it on my way home from work or while I’m getting ready and I would automatically feel in the mood to accomplish my goal. Most importantly, keep it personal. Focus on what you want your journey to be. You know yourself better than anyone else, as long as you truly wish to complete these goals, they will eventually happen in due time.

Running Safety Tips

Wear tight fitted clothing. Loose clothing can be easily grabbed, making it easier for you to be pulled away

2. Don’t wear your hair in a ponytail. Ponytails are an easy thing to grab from behind. Wear a bun, tuck your ponytail into a headband, or wear it low and tuck into your shirt.

3. Don’t wear headphones. Not only can you not hear someone running up behind you but you can’t hear cars either. Play your music out loud, or even wear just one earpiece.

4. Run against traffic. Do this so you can see the cars coming at you, and they can see you.

5. Alter your route. Don’t run the same route every day.

6. Run an open route. If alone, don’t run in back woods trails where there a little people and no public places around to hear you and help.
