Rudy getting comfortable..
Another week has blown by and I can finally sit down and reflect on some pretty big events in my families life. We wished my father a Happy 60th Birthday on Wednesday and celebrated his retirement as well. My sweet little Madie blew out thee candles, on her store bought birthday cake, on Friday, what a day that was! To add to my, sometimes busy life, we also welcomed a new four legged friend to the family on Thursday as we sent daddy on his way back to Fort Mc Murray for another 2 weeks of work. Rudy has blended into our way of life just great, so far, and although I came across some friends who think I am crazy to add more to my plate I am very happy I made the decision to bring him into our home.
Happy Birthday Madie!
This week I have had the opportunity to speak with many of my clients about their perspective on this whole healthy lifestyle that I promote and I am shocked to say (here is my sarcasm coming on) that they don't all have the same positive attitude to achieve it as I do. You know when you think, hey I have a great idea let's try this, only to find that your idea may be more complicated than you once thought. To me living a healthy ( for the most part) lifestyle is pretty black and white..I exercise, I eat well and I take time to nurture myself in order to feel good both inside & out. I crave the feeling of a great workout, love to sweet and feel confident doing it. Guess what, there are many more individuals who dislike the effort to get out and exercise, don't enjoy sweating and feel very uncomfortable letting go of their bodies to workout. So when I am thinking hey this is great all of these people must be so happy to be here working out, I may be wrong. It does not come natural to most people and I perhaps am in the minority. So the questions is, how can I help change this to be a more positive experience physically and mentally. Here is where it gets interesting! I must somehow prove to some of my sceptics that there is a way to feel empowered, confident, comfortable and sure of yourself in this whole process. But what struck me this week was that I have a lot of work ahead of me to help more individuals adopt, crave and love this way of life. Over the next four weeks I will study, research, meet with others in my field and try to come up with more strategies to make this process more positive, comfortable and attainable for the masses. Any suggestions?
