Exercise Not Just For You, But Also For Your Family



Exercise for you, and for your family!

When you work out, it is not just for yourself and your health, it is also for your family.

11 years ago I started martial arts with my husband Matt and my son Andrew. Over the years we have all found what we love to do- Matt loves Krav Maga, I love running and Andrew loves lifting weights.

When I started running, it wasn't just for me. I wanted to set an example for Andrew of a mom, and woman who prioritizes her health. I wanted to show him that it is important for everyone in the family to have time for themselves to exercise. (Not just sitting on the sidelines watching him practice and play).

Sometimes as moms we put our needs last.  I wanted to show Andrew that it is okay for me to put my health and fitness first. It has taught him how to live a healthy lifestyle, how to do things that are challenging, and he sees that running for me is a stress reliever. Now, he is one of my biggest cheerleaders, always checking in to see how my run is, and encouraging me as I train for races.

Even if you are tired today, what can you do to take care of yourself, and show your kids how important that is?  They are looking to YOU to set the example, to show them what a healthy lifestyle looks like.

Try a walk after dinner, a, bike ride or yoga video. Take 30 minutes today- I promise you, no matter how tired you are, you won’t regret it!

Creating Fitness Goals for 2021.

Creating Fitness Goals for 2021.
Did you know? 
 
It’s impossible to achieve your dream life without knowing where you are now. When I coach people in the Oola principles, one of the first things we do is find out where they are in life.


Just like when you use your smartphone’s Maps app to get directions, the first thing that shows up is where you are at this moment—represented by a little blue dot. Plug in your destination, and your smartphone will use GPS technology to give you step-by-step, mile-by-mile directions from your current location to your desired endpoint. 

But before you can go anywhere, you need to know exactly where you are right now. 


Over the next few weeks, I’ll be leading you through a where-are-you exercise in the seven areas that I cover in the Oola Coaching Program: fitness, finance, family, field (career), faith, friends and fun. We call these “The 7 F’s of Oola,” and by the time this month is through, you’ll have a checklist of things you’d like to improve. Are you ready? 

Let’s look at the very first of The 7 F’s of Oola: fitness. 


Fitness is a big one for me- there was  a time that I was tired, sick and had gained weight. I was depressed and anxious, barely able to balance everything in my life. When I focused on this key area- I found strength, energy and health. At 50, I have more energy and feel better than I did at 30.


On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your health, fitness habits and mental wellbeing? If you answer “1,” that means low/bad/least true, while answering “10” means “high/good/most true”:


  • I would rate my current health....................................  ____
  • How close am I to my ideal weight?.........................  ____
  • I would rate my overall mental health.....................  ____
  • I do 3+ cardio/resistance sessions a week..............  ____
  •  How hard do I push myself during exercise?.........  ____
  • I am active outside of exercise sessions..................  ____
  • I practice relaxation daily..............................................  ____
  • I love my life and have little stress............................  ____
 
Keep this score handy- and as you visit my blog each week, you will have a checklist of all the things you would like to improve upon in the coming year.

Can You Believe it? 3 Months left in 2020!

Can You Believe it?  3 Months left in 2020!
Can you believe it? 

2020 is almost over. Which makes these final three months of the year your best opportunity to make sure 2021 is more balanced and more abundant. 

I truly love helping others live their best lives- I have made it my mission to help women find balance in their lives, even when everything around us seems so unbalanced. I got certified as an Oola Life Coach  so that I could help people to achieve their dreams in the 7 major areas of life (Family, Faith, Fun, Fitness, Field-career, Friends and Finance). It’s something I learned from Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl—The OolaGuys—who teach how to create balance in our unbalanced world. (Oola is short for Oolala!) I have been learning from them for the past few years- and their coaching has helped me be more organized and grateful, and to make fun an important part of my life!

I  help clients address what’s not working for them in the seven F’s. Then we go to work correcting those stressors and bringing about the lifestyle, relationships and financial security you need to be happy, balanced and growing.

With October here and this whole crazy year almost behind us, some people are starting to call 2020 a wash. The Lost Year. An epic fail. But before you give this year the heave-ho, why not spend the last three months of it deciding what you want your next year to look like? What are you dreaming about in 2021?

Whether it’s to make more money, be home with your kids, improve your marriage, have fun, get healthy, or something else – the Oola formula gives you the steps to get there. The key is to decide where you need to make changes, write out your wish list, and start taking small steps every day toward 2-3 goals at a time. It’s a three-step process that’s part of the 10-Week Oola coaching experience that I offer to my clients. 

The reality is that you can have anything you want, but you need to start focusing somewhere. By the time my posts during this month are through, you’ll have a wish list of things that will transform how you live—and even who you are as a person.

Have some ideas of what you want already? Whatever your wish list includes for next year, drop a comment below and share it with me. The Oola formula can be a big help toward getting there—so if the 10-week Oola coaching experience is something you’d like to pursue as 2020 winds down, message me and we can jump on a 30-minute discovery call to explore the idea of working together on your goals. I’m here to help 2021 be a breakthrough year for you.

XO
