“First when there’s nothing but a slow glowing dream…”
(The new year is almost here! Let’s give it a kick start!)
If you are new to exercise, intimidated by gyms, overwhelmed by the information on the internet, feeling a little frumpy and totally unmotivated and a little put off by the whole exercise and healthy eating thing, you might find online coaching, including nutrition tips, and a coach who offers motivation and support, a valuable component to attaining your fitness and wellness goals. (I think I just wrote the longest sentence in the world.) You want some common sense answers when it comes to exercising and eating. You want a certified personal trainer who has filtered out the flood of b*llsh*t programs, and you want a holistic nutritionist who questions the latest fads (and is not trying to sell you a powdered drink) to rely on for the straight goods. You want someone who has been through the same flood of confusion and come out the other side, resources intact, and a little wiser. If you arrived at this page it is by happy happenstance, I do not believe in click funnels or fictitious count down clocks to get you to sign up for my program.
(hamming it up at a recent fitness conference)
Perhaps you’re wondering if you get a second chance at fitness, another kick at the can, and if so, why bother. Perhaps you are wondering if you can afford to buy organic, eat mung bean and kale salad without gagging, and do a sit up while watching your favourite Netflix series.
All I can say is that the whole thing is not that far fetched. You can afford the time and money to eat healthfully. You can integrate exercise into your routine, and believe it or not you can even lose weight. NOT ONLY THAT, you can deal with some “target issues” (ie “back fat,” “cottage cheese arms,” “flat booty”) .
As a former dancer I am all about keeping you fit as you age (yikes! The A word), and I am proof that it can be done. I learned early on, as a young dancer, that injuries suck. As a result I have spent years studying and learning good form.
My favourite butt exercises: The Bulgarian split squat! The frog. The leg raise. You’ll feel the burn! You’ll see the results!
I also ate very poorly as a dancer, despite the fact that my mom had set a darn good example and plied us with whole foods. (Dessert was often a “banana in a dish with milk and sugar on it.” A little sugar.) We were lucky enough to have bowls of fresh fruit and yucky green vegetables even in the depths of winter. When I set out on my own to set the dance world on its tush, it was a different story. Back in the day nutrition was a pretty grey area, and money was scarce. Therefore I’ll be posting recommendations and recipes as well as tips (economic and time saving).
So there you have it; you and I share a lot in common. We are trying to eat and exercise while maintaining busy work and personal lives, and believe me, it is a challenge to stay healthy, eat healthily and economically, and find “me” time in all of that.
You likely know that exercise and healthy whole foods can:
- alleviate the blues
- give you energy
- help you sleep better
- make you feel like a god or goddess at the beach on your winter vacation
