Smutty Fitness: Mental health is important too

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 26, 2017 21:13:03 January 26, 2017 21:13:03

Motivation. Sometimes we just lack it. Sometimes we lack it for a long time and sometimes it is short lived, but with this past Wednesday being Bell Let’s Talk Day I thought this was a perfect time to talk about what I think is a very important aspect of our mental health.  There are mornings when the sound of the alarm going off is a scary reminder of all that I need to face in my day and rather than waking up and grabbing the bull by the horns all I want to do is crawl back into my bed and hide. Full Article

I'm really hoping you can offer some guidance here because I am struggling. Ok, so here's what's up. I've been working out for about 7 years now consistently. I do a combination of cardio, weight training and Pilates and have recently added some kickboxing into my routine. I've noticed, with the kickboxing, that I'm not typically hungry following a workout (which is VERY unusual for me because I'm always hungry), but then a couple of hours later, I want to eat ALL OF THE FOOD. Full Article

The last bit of advice for kick-starting 2017 is whatever your goal is, whatever you are trying to accomplish, whatever changes you are trying to make, commit to it 100%. You are the one in control and only you can decide your success. You need to hold yourself accountable and you need to take the responsibility for when things don’t go as planned. Full Article

We are nearing the end of our 2017 kick start and I hope you are all learning how to create healthy lifestyles for yourselves. There is no easy way about it, no magic exercise or pill that is going to change you or your body.  It takes hard work, sacrifices and the ability to make changes. Thank you for all the questions and I will answer them in the coming weeks but today I wanted to put the focus not on what you eat but how you eat. Full Article

Time for a little real talk. Because meeting our goals is never easy. Nothing frustrates me more than my clients who pretend that they are doing their homework, whether it is the rehabilitation program their physiotherapist used or logging their food to help hold them accountable to eating well, which brings me to today’s challenge: take the blinders off and be honest with yourself about the lifestyle you are living vs the lifestyle you hope to live. Full Article

Today’s challenge is going to help you stick to all of the changes you are have tried to make year after year. There is a reason why most of us don’t stick to our resolutions and it is likely because we are trying to accomplish too much all at once. I’ll be honest with you, that’s why I never set resolutions for myself. Full Article

We all know that what you eat plays a larger role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle than how much (or little) you eat, but did you know that if you start making healthy choices right at the grocery store you can save money too? Now I must have been hiding under a rock to not know that all fruits and vegetables (canned, fresh or frozen), breakfast cereals, milk products, all fresh meats and coffee beans are considered zero-rated basic groceries, which means you do not pay tax on them in Canada, (here is a link... Full Article

Today’s challenge is to let go of the “I don’t have time” mentality. If I had to pick one thing that prevents people from living a healthy and active lifestyle is that they claim to not have time. Everybody has time, you just need to make it. Exercising does not have to take up hours of your day. Full Article
