I have a cousin who lives in New York, and despite the fact that I love her dearly, we rarely get to talk. Partly because of the time difference and the fact that every time I think to call her I have just 10 or 15 minutes and I think to myself, “Its been so long since we have spoken, I should wait until I have a bigger chunk of time,” except that I never find that chunk of time, and as a result we go months and months and months before we get to talk.
It kinda makes me think of how we view exercise. How many times have you said to yourself, today I will get started. Except that you hit the snooze button , or you need to get your kids to school, or you have to be at an early work meeting, or... And the fact that you don’t have a full hour to spare keeps you from doing anything at all.
I want to encourage you to meet yourself where you are at, wherever that is, and to start small, allowing yourself to get in the game.
Have you resolved to get more movement in your life, if not for weight loss, but for all the other benefits?
or just generalized well-being?
As I’ve often said, I wish exercise and weight loss would just get a divorce because the benefits of moving your body are so much more profound than the numbers on the scale.
But if you’ve been out of the game for a bit, you may feel intimidated or just don’t know where to start.
Well, this week on HealthBite, I interviewed Dylan Conrad, a fitness coach and owner of a premier online coaching and accountability practice offering group, and one-on-one online fitness and coaching.
He’s been at this gig for nearly 20 years and has tremendous experience and expertise as we’ll discuss, he was even my trainer back in the day .
