Giveaway, Healthy Holiday Reality Check and Links

Tick, tick, tick.  We interrupt your regularly scheduled holiday revelry for an important reality check.  When it’s all over you may have a regret or two. 

Finding Your FIt

Finding Your Fit

Or not.  Especially with a little help.  Like from a book like Finding Your Fit: A Compassionate Trainer’s Guide to Making Fitness a Lifelong Habit by Kathleen Trotter. 

Compassionate Trainer???  I like the sound of that! And I have an extra copy to send to one lucky reader! 

What appealed to me about this book was its unusual focus.  Although it includes some sample exercise routines, the focus is more on motivation.  Things like:

  • Understand that you have power
  • Find opportunities to be positive
  • Reframe setbacks
  • Have a personal mantra prepared

Count me in!  I skimmed it now—and plan a full read before January 1.  Gonna start my New Year’s Resolutions positioned for success!  

Motivation is key to starting any healthy habit (and thankfully habit does eventually take over).  That’s why I do things like join a CSA (weekly box of veggies = eat more veggies).   Why a friend and I are “weight watching buddies” to make sure we aren’t gaining (ahem, much) weight over the holidays. And why I am excited to find more good advice in Finding Your Fit!

    I am trying to live healthier by being more physically active. I am walking mor each day and starting CrossFit workouts. I am trying to eat healthier meals by including more vegetables, fruits, healthy oils, high fiber foods.

    I have completely changed the way I eat in the last eight months. I plan all meals. Try to eat as little processed food as possible. Now to just add more exercise daily.

    I am drinking water only, every once in a great while I will have a soda. Eating more veggies and fruits. And adding stretching to my daily routine. Walking with the kids when we can and walking my dog

    i have been buying a bag of heads of romaine and a container of tomatoes, and having that in my work fridge for the week! every day, I bring something to put on the salad, maybe some grilled chicken from the night before, a hard-boiled egg, corn cut off the cob, or a can of tuna! it helps to keep it from getting old to me!

    I’ve been slacking the last couple of months since things have been busy about getting to the gym. During that time I try to make sure that we’re at least getting meals at home and not grabbing quick things out on the road!
