Personal Trainer ~ NAPS 2 B Fit Health + Fitness Tip

A person needs to walk the length of a football field to burn enough calories to offset eating a single piece of candy-coated chocolate.*

Does that information motivate you to take it easy this time of year with all the temptations around us?

Does this tip motivate you to stick with your exercise program?

I hope so.

Enjoy Thanksgiving, Christmas and the rest of your holidays with loved ones as well as your daily dose of proper exercise, rest, and yes, of course, your dessert ritual. Indulging in your favorite, little, simple pleasure every day will do amazing things for your health and well-being.

Best of health to you and goodbye.

Halloween Candy Aftermath

Out of sight, out of mind.

How are you all doing with the temptations of trick-or-treat night stash in your homes?

Go ahead and have your treat; just do not make a meal of those treats. Try to fill up on the good food first; then, you will have the proper amount of room left to slowly enjoy the serving size of your choice for dessert.

Allowing yourself a ritual will help to balance your cravings, believe it or not. Just think about it and give it a try.

If that does not work for you, then hide the stash or give it away for the out of sight, out of mind tactic.

Best of health to you and goodbye.

Reflection of a Personal Trainer

“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”

Not true in my world. I can and do teach the older generation new tricks; both human and animal.

First, what do you consider to be an old dog? Second, what do you consider to be a new trick?

Maybe the older the dog, the more the dog has learned and there are no more new tricks to learn. Hmmm.

All it takes is patience and perseverance with the right cues, communication and understanding to learn a new trick. That’s all, time and practice.

Time could be one day, one week, one month, one year or more; that is just fine.

Practice until you get it, practice some more, continue practicing until it becomes second nature to you. Then practice some more and you will be a pro.

The same holds true for all of us. Just keep up with what you have learned to maintain what you have accomplished. Believe it or not, I need to do the same thing with my own customized health and wellness program.

By the way, I like my white hair. I also like the gray and white hair on you and our pets.
