When you uncover your soul's purpose… Learn more about why I do what I do on a deeper level. (This actually has nothing to do with kettlebells. 😊)

When you uncover your soul’s purpose…

Learn more about why I do what I do on a deeper level. (This actually has nothing to do with kettlebells. 😊)

This video is something I posted on Facebook weeks ago, but wanted to use it to connect with you guys on a deeper level. Thank you for allowing me to be vulnerable!

Also, I need your help! If you are between the ages of 35 and 65, have a basic knowledge of fitness, and would be the type of people who would invest in an at-home customized training program, please fill out this survey. 

It will greatly help me develop the product and find the right language to use in marketing!

 

I appreciate you!

Trigger Foods vs Buffer Foods

When it comes to dealing with cravings there are two approaches I like to take with clients (in addition to simple prevention strategies).

I want to make you aware of two food classifications that can either make or break your ability to stay on track with your nutrition and avoid giving into cravings: buffer foods and trigger foods.

Buffer foods are foods that allow you to, with a small amount of indulgence, get rid of the cravings and thereby take in far fewer calories than you would have if you gave into the craving. Buffer foods typically include things like almond butter, green smoothies, extra dark chocolate (or other items with cocoa). Think foods that give you the sweet or fat sensation but that you don’t want to eat a whole lot of.

Trigger foods typically increase cravings and caloric intake. For example, if you give into a craving for pancakes for breakfast in the morning, your blood sugar will spike and crash. You’ll get hungrier faster, eat more throughout the day, and have stronger cravings for starches and sugars.

Try replacing your trigger foods with buffer foods and see how your cravings and hunger are affected. What buffer food are you going to try?

Recovery vs Activity

There’s no denying that the world of 2018 is one of chronic stress and pressure to achieve.

Sometimes it can be challenging to get it all done – family, friends, exercise, daily movement, work, managing a home – whew! That’s a lot of demand.

So, I want to invite you to get in better touch with yourself today. We all know when we make excuses and talk ourselves out of getting in a workout or preparing a healthy meal.

But sometimes it’s deeper and more intense than that. Your body is screaming at you, begging for you to care for it.

When you hear that voice and feel that exhaustion, I want you to know it’s OKAY to listen.

Here are some of the BEST self-care and recovery activities I suggest for you:

  • Writing, reading, or something creative
  • Getting in a spa or sauna
  • Walking
  • Listening to or playing music
  • Getting physical affection from a loved one
  • Spend time with your pets
  • Take a nap

Listen closely to yourself. Are you just not in the mood to be active or do you genuinely need recovery time?

Be 100% honest with yourself, make the right choice, and do it all guilt-free.

I’m here to support!
