Start Losing Weight Right Now

Start Losing Weight Right Now

Remember that there is no such thing as perfect conditions. If you want to change something, you have to start NOW. Not on Monday. Not tomorrow. Not a next week. But right now.  Why? Because you’ll never have more time and the time will never be JUST RIGHT. If you always wait for perfect timing, you’ll never get anything done.

Feel Your Beauty

Feel Your Beauty

“Every time you respect and release your emotions know you are healing a part of you. Never apologize for your tears. Crying is the only way your eyes speak when your mouth can’t explain. Your tears are cleansing your soul in order to move forward. All these feelings need to be felt. I see it as a sign that I am very in touch with my innermost self, my heart and soul. I’m not afraid of my emotions, unlike many that are. Suppressing tears & emotions increases stress levels, contributes to disease such as high blood pressure, heart problems and ulcers. So have yourself a good healthy cry if needed. Release and let go so you can get back to smiling. You were given a heart by your Creator to share healthy love. Be healthy body mind and soul” – Karen Ficarelli

Effective weight training depends on proper technique and correct posture. The main foundation of the proper form is your core (abs) and your back. Always keep your back straight and your abs engaged in any exercise that you do. When squating, don’t let your knees drop inward.
Strength training can help you lose fat, increase your strength and muscle tone, and improve your bone density but only when it’s done correctly. Otherwise it may lead to injuries.
Also don’t forget to BREATH! Breathe out as you lift the weight and breathe in as you lower the weight.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine's Day

I think it’s wonderful to have one day a year set aside to celebrate love, and to do something special for the people and with the people we love the most, but I think that what matters most is what you do for someone you care every single day. There is a million ways to say “I love you” every day” like “Your arms are getting toned”  “Let’s go to the gym together” “Here’s a box of Lindt dark chocolates for you” “Watch your step” “Get some rest” “Let’s grab a shake and take a walk at the park together”… you just have to listen. :)

Some of the most romantic Valentine’s dates can be a walk along the beach or going to the sauna, hot springs, taking a short trip or booking a massage… Whatever you do do it will all your heart.

Remember, couples that exercise together not only have stronger bonds, but also stronger bodies. :)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love Your Body (Through Thick and Thin)

Love Your Body (Throught Thick and Thin)

My great hope for us as young women is to start being kinder to ourselves so that we can be kinder to each other. To stop shaming ourselves and other people for things we don’t know the full story on — whether someone is too fat, too skinny, too short, too tall, too loud, too quiet, too anything. There’s a sense that we’re all ‘too’ something, and we’re all not enough…I hope we can be supportive of each other and try to really have each other’s backs, especially when we don’t know the whole story.” – Emma Stone

Happines doesn’t —nor should it—depend on your weight. If you’re not happy with who you are now, you sure won’t be when you lose those pounds.  Your emotional well-being will not improved by being slender. Don’t let your weight effect your spirits. You won’t find happiness in a  smaller pair of jeans. Happines lies in you. It means being comfortable in your own skin. Love your body just the way it is while working for what you want. Weight loss is all about your health not your worth.

Wishing you a lovely Saturday! :)

Eat To Get FIT

Eat To Get FIT

“I like to advise people to create a long term view for effective weight loss. There are 3 P’s that are important to understand for weight loss. P1 (Psychology): You must have a specific, measureable, attainable, and time bound weight loss goal and you MUST have a clear and powerful “WHY” that will drive you. This starts in your mind. P2 (Physiology): Begin by eating 500 less calories/day, walking 10,000 steps/day, sleeping 8 eight hours/night, and taking a multi-vitamin. P3 (Physical): Once you have your mind right and your calories under control, now begin an exercise plan to “get fit”. Be patient. Be persistent. Be clear and be realistic. It is going to take time to lose weight and get healthy. You didnt gain the weight overnight and you will not lose it overnight. Living healthy and fit is a mindset and ultimately your choice. You get to choose what you eat and how much you move. Make the healthy choice. Good luck!” – Dr. Mike Clark, DPT

Remember, to lose weight and stay with it, your strategy must comprise of both exercise and healthy eating. Happy Friday, everyone!
