How To Stay on Track During the Holidays
It is the holidays — I’m going to enjoy myself. But I can’t truly enjoy myself unless I train. It’s the training that allows me to enjoy the partying. If you’re working out consistently, you can go to the office party, indulge, and you won’t feel guilty. You don’t ever want to get in a negative state of mind. The key is sticking to your training schedule because from the training comes all the possibility. Your thoughts don’t manifest anything; your body does. So, say yes to the holidays. Welcome the holidays. But continue your foundation of training and you can have it all.
The Best Workout You Can Do When You Can’t Do Much (Or Are Just Feeling a Little Lazy)
You’ve heard that “An apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Well move over apples— bananas are better!
The banana needs no formal introduction. Bananas are well known and enjoyed by many people around the world whether they’re on a raw diet or not. One of the most well known banana health facts is that bananas are one of the best sources of the mineral potassium. An average banana contains 467 mg of potassium.
So what is potassium good for?
Potassium is an essential mineral for many bodily functions. Some of the benefits of potassium are:
-Maintains muscle functions
-Helps with metabolism
-Aids in supplying oxygen to the brain
-Helps to regulate fluid levels in the body
-Protects nerve cells
-Maintains functions of the heart
-Assists the kidneys in the removal of wastes
Compared to apples, the banana contains five times the vitamin A and iron, four times the protein, three times the phosphorus, and twice as much as all the other vitamins and minerals, including fiber, that the two fruits have in common.
So what are you waiting for!? Go grab a banana! One of the most beneficial healthy snacks out there!
The Importance of Giving Thanks
I taught three classes on Thanksgiving Day this year to give back to my dedicated clients. For 20 years, I’ve been alone on Thanksgiving, so I know what it’s like to not have anywhere to go. And that’s why I’ve always taught on Thanksgiving. This studio is like a family — it’s not a gym — so it’s important that everyone knows how thankful I am for the fact that they come to The Studio (MDR) and give me their best. It really is so inspiring. And I’m so thankful to everyone for being so bold — for constantly showing up. This month, I challenge you to take a moment to be thankful — for your body, for the fact that you are able to do these workouts and express yourself in this way.
My theory on fitness is this: My job is to be a mirror to show you your potential. All I’m doing is saying, look, you can do this. But I’m just a flashlight — you have to walk the path. You’ve got to do the work. I’m not going to push you, I’m just going to hold the light. My job is to open up your awareness to see how much potential you have so you can walk the path.
