How To Workout When You Don’t Like Working Out
Exercise is not just about losing weight, it’s about feeling good in your body and being more connected to everything you do. And, as you know, getting regular exercise dramatically reduces your risk of disease, decreases stress and helps you live a full, happier life!
And I know you want to feel that way, but trying to figure out how to move your body regularly, in a way that actually feels good can be a challenge, especially with the holidays approaching.
I want to introduce you to my friend, Erin Stutland.
Erin is a coach, fitness expert, former dancer and an actress who has been featured in Glamour Magazine, Shape, Daily Candy and more, and people all over the world are currently experiencing her awesome work.
She says, “I wasted years of my life trying to get results from all kinds of hard, painful workouts. Even worse … I spent those years of my life using exercise as a way of punishing myself for not being good enough. It’s tragic that so many of us have felt trapped by this painful way of exercising.”
Inspired to help woman find ways to move their bodies consistently and with pleasure, Erin created Shrink Session, a workout that is unlike ANYTHING I have ever experienced before. It’s incredible, truly.
Combining positive psychology, kickboxing, dance, yoga, and active meditation, you will tone your body, while expanding your expectations of what’s possible.
I’m really excited because between NOW and December 15th, Erin is offering 3 special FREE BONUS workouts with her signature program. You can check them out here.
The program itself is packed with incredible workouts, meditations, and coaching. And with the limited time BONUS workouts, you are getting even more incredible value.
Check out this video she made for you and if it sounds like something you could use, I highly recommend you sign up and test drive a Shrink Session workout for FREE. Get your FREE workout here.
Remember: Movement in your body will create movement in your life!
Program Yourself For Weight Loss Success
If you have been with me for a while, you know how much I adore Louise Hay. Her positive philosophy has helped millions create more of what they want in their lives. Louise posted the following article on Facebook a few days ago, and I just love it.
Mindset is everything when it comes to lasting weight loss. In fact, overcoming your limiting beliefs and breaking through the excuses that keep you stuck is the critical first step in my Smaller Size Bigger Life program. This is the get-slim (and get-happy!) secret sauce – and it is, truly, the only way to rid yourself of your weight issues forever.
12 Ways You Can Love Yourself Now
~ Louise L. Hay
I have found that there is only one thing that heals every problem, and that is: to love yourself. When people start to love themselves more each day, it’s amazing how their lives get better. They feel better. They get the jobs they want. They have the money they need. Their relationships either improve, or the negative ones dissolve and new ones begin.
Here are 12 Commandments to help you learn how to love yourself:
1. Stop All Criticism.
Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to criticize yourself. Accept yourself exactly as you are. Everybody changes. When you criticize yourself, your changes are negative. When you approve of yourself, your changes are positive.
2. Forgive Yourself.
Let the past go. You did the best you could at the time with the understanding, awareness, and knowledge that you had. Now you are growing and changing, and you will live life differently.
3. Don’t Scare Yourself.
Stop terrorizing yourself with your thoughts. It’s a dreadful way to live. Find a mental image that gives you pleasure, and immediately switch your scary thought to a pleasure thought.
4. Be Gentle and Kind and Patient.
Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new ways of thinking. Treat yourself as you would someone you really loved.
5. Be Kind to Your Mind.
Self-hatred is only hating your own thoughts. Don’t hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change your thoughts.
6. Praise Yourself.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
7. Support Yourself.
Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends and allow them to help you. It is being strong to ask for help when you need it.
8. Be Loving to Your Negatives.
Acknowledge that you created them to fulfill a need. Now you are finding new, positive ways to fulfill those needs. So lovingly release the old negative patterns.
9. Take Care of Your Body.
Learn about nutrition. What kind of fuel does your body need in order to have optimum energy and vitality? Learn about exercise. What kind of exercise do you enjoy? Cherish and revere the temple you live in.
10. Do Mirror Work.
Look into your eyes often. Express this growing sense of love you have for yourself. Forgive yourself while looking into the mirror. Talk to your parents while looking into the mirror. Forgive them, too. At least once a day, say, “I love you, I really love you!”
11. Love Yourself . . . Do It Now.
Don’t wait until you get well, or lose the weight, or get the new job, or find the new relationship. Begin now—and do the best you can.
12. Have Fun.
Remember the things that gave you joy as a child. Incorporate them into your life now. Find a way to have fun with everything you do. Let yourself express the joy of living. Smile. Laugh. Rejoice, and the Universe rejoices with you!
An Entirely New Way To Lose Weight
Thanks to everyone who responded to participate in the 2014 Smaller Size Bigger Life weight loss program. I’ve received hundreds of applications! Given the overwhelming response and interest, I’m unable to accept any further applications at this time.
If we didn’t get the chance to work together this time around, don’t worry. I’ll be launching an online version of the Smaller Size Bigger Life program later in 2014. These online spots will fill up quickly too, so be sure to sign up for my email list here to be notified when the program is available. Thank you!
In 2014 I’ll be taking on a handful of VIP clients for my signature Smaller Size Bigger Life weight loss program! These spots will fill up quickly, so please read over the following info, and email me at email@example.com if this feels like the right fit for you.
The intensive 5-month Smaller Size Bigger Life program, starting in January, is meant for women who are ready to make serious changes in their life. If you’re looking for a fast-fix or the latest fad diet, this is not the program for you. But if you want lasting weight loss, a healthy lifestyle, and freedom from your food demons—if you’re ready to get real about your weight issues—I can help.
Women who are healthy and happy are better partners, mothers, and friends, and they influence and empower other women to lead healthier lives. Women are also natural communicators, and a woman who is free from her food and weight fears, is free to spread love in the world. She is able to become more of who she really is, and to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
And believe me, this BIGGER life in a smaller size is 100% possible for you.
I’d love to work with you if …
· You’re open-minded and ready to change the way you eat, think, and live.
· You feel overwhelmed, scared, powerless, or ashamed about your weight and food issues.
· You believe in the mind-body connection.
You’ll find I’m not like other dietitians. I am a food lover AND a health nut. I don’t believe in diets or deprivation, and I think exercise should be pleasurable, not punitive. In my weight-loss world, you can have your (chocolate ganache) cake and eat it too…and still lose the weight.
Here are just some of the topics we will be covering…
