This must come first...

"YOU FIRST HAVE TO MAKE A COMMITMENT TO YOURSELF."
(Wisdom from another brilliant client.)

As we rest and rejuvenate this weekend I sincerely hope you put time for yourself at the top of your list.

My favorite thing to do to strictly for myself? Snorkeling. Now, understandably that will not happen (sigh) but I can find other ways - take as many naps as my munchkins will allow, ease up on my schedule, have drinks with friends and listen to an outdoor performance with my family. All things I love that refill my tank and put the brakes on my usual demands.

Have a healthy, relaxing and fabulous weekend!
Enjoy committing to yourself first!

So proud of my strength in numbers ladies and clients today! Check out this very challenging core exercise we were doing today…

Client moves herself into a quadruped position with abdominal wall engaged, tucks her toes under and then raise her knees off the ground. She then balances a water bottle on her back and tries to walk forward.

They did an awesome job!

Took my first @CorePowerYoga fusion class last night with my dear friend. I sweat so much I got water up my nose. Excellent effort from all the instructors in training! Followed it up with an awesome delicious veggie taco, sampling of mole fries and LOTS of water at @elcarritotacos ! A Friday night well spent.

A client and I were catching up after a session. She is by all accounts exceedingly successful professionally, incredibly likable and a joy to have in Strength In Numbers. She repeated the advice she gives her mentees. “The key to success is to work really, really hard. And, then, keep working hard.”

I have two things to say about that.

1. She’s right.

2. “Really, really hard” does not necessarily mean being married to the same plan forever.

Let me explain.

In terms of healthy living, some grab onto one idea with a vengence (e.g. a non-runner training to run a marathon, an extreme diet plan for 30 days, or a 6 workout per week schedule after being sedentary) and not let go until something breaks (schedule, body, will power.)

It is true that all of those things are hard. But, that is not the kind of really, really hard work that necessarily pays off. The really, really hard work are things like adapting moderate daily habits, acknowledging where you might be kidding yourself and taking the time to define success for yourself.

That kind of work is tough, “really, really hard” even. But, in the game of healthy living, totally worth it.
