6 Weeks, 6 Habits: Are YOU Ready to Transform Your Body?

What would you anticipate are the six most potent changes you can make for real transformation? 

Do your thoughts tend toward the extreme? Slashing calories? Exercising hours a day? Depriving yourself of great food or regular fun? 

What if I told you none of those even begin to make this list? What if I said true transformation doesn’t come from extreme measures but from disciplined but do-able commitment to key behaviors? 

And let me add the little appreciated truth that change begets change. Your efforts and motivation over time become compounded. It’s a phenomenon you can’t anticipate at the beginning of a journey, but I see it every day in my clients. What you do today will make you a person who next week can envision and take on that much more. 

True, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and genuine transformation rarely completes itself in six weeks, but in that short amount of time all the essential components could be in place, which means you’ll be fully engaged (and well on your way) to big change.

Should Age Affect How You Eat?

Should age affect how you eat? 

It’s a fair, if not fundamental, question.

As you add up the decades (and life experiences), you may notice that your body needs a little extra TLC with daily stress, a little more recovery following challenging workouts, a little more discipline in the nutrition department.

The fact is, while our age shouldn’t be an excuse for a slowing metabolism, digestive issues, stiff joints or weight gain (just to name a few factors), it may make us more susceptible to those things. Our condition as we age, however, is an intersection of our body’s natural physiological trajectory and the positive/negative inputs we give it.

7 Foods That Sabotage Fat Loss

The physical principles behind fat loss are relatively simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s always an easy journey!

What Can Yoga Add to Your Weight Loss Journey?

It’s easy to get stuck in a traditional sense of what constitutes “exercise" - especially when weight loss is our goal.

We want to make our time and effort count. We don’t want to settle for “less than” in our fitness endeavors.

Our commitment to weight loss, however, doesn’t have to be the unrelenting grind we sometimes envision it to be.

Getting healthy is about living more vibrantly in our bodies. This includes building strength and cardiovascular endurance through appropriately intensive exercise, but it also means working with a foundation of ample movement each and every day as well as cultivating stress management and self-awareness.

Would it surprise you to hear that yoga can offer all of the aforementioned benefits? Read on to learn how the extensive varieties and benefits of yoga practice can support your weight loss and transformation journey!
