Try Getting Inside Out

Featured

When we think of beauty it generally comes from an outward and/or outside perspective, which as visual creatures makes a lot of sense. As such we also often get caught up in concerns about what to wear, how to do our hair, putting on makeup, and also take it into the things we surround ourselves with: our homes, vehicles, work spaces, etc. We make our appearance and spaces we see everyday attractive to our eyes as best we can. We are also highly feeling creatures, we enjoy things that are nice to touch and generally will avoid say fabrics that are uncomfortable. In fact short of an expensive pair of the nicest shoes ( if you’re a woman, and even then we’ll complain) we tend not to subject ourselves to discomfort, actually we avoid it at all costs… mostly. For some reason when it comes to taking care of the inside of our bodies, even when they are incredibly uncomfortable from unhealthy food, excess alcohol and soft drinks, a grand lack of movement and exercise, and our minds and immune systems are depressed, we continue on doing what we’ve been doing often until we reach illness, all the while never leaving the house without a perfect coif or letting the lawn grow more than 2 inches.

Don’t get me wrong outward appearances do affect us and our confidence in our outer world. A bad hair day and coffee-to-shirt introductions suck,  but not quite the same way feeling like crap (physically, mentally, emotionally) affects your confidence and all the other realms of your life. And all of these internal crap feelings are heavily affected by how you treat your body. You know this!

Yes, internal beauty is harder. It doesn’t just require a layer of paint, a clean shirt, or a dusting of rouge. It requires follow through, self-discipline, and forcing yourself to do things even when you don’t want to. Whether that is to put on your running shoes and just go, or to choose broccoli over buttery mash, or stop at 2 glasses of wine rather than the bottle. In fact, let’s be really honest it’s why I have a job, it’s a hard go alone and without always knowing which piece of conflicting information is the right one for you, it can seem impossible!

Remember though, that it’s always easier to be confident and enjoy your day feeling beautiful on the inside with a stained shirt, than it is to feel like a bag of rotten that with a pretty face full of makeup. It’s also why the CREATE slogan is Be Healthy. Look Fantastic. Feel Awesome! It’s a whole package deal. Today think about how you can apply follow-through, self-discipline, and just plain forcing yourself (if you must) to get that step ahead on your internal beauty that will no doubt show up on the outside.

Be A Space Case

Featured

If you’ve been having trouble implementing some of the previous renewal suggestions so far this month despite your efforts perhaps it’s a space case: we are so loaded down with stuff and schedules and to-do lists, we often haven’t created enough space in our lives for these things.

Think about how much harder it is to get things done in a messy space, how helpless we feel in a dirty or crowded space, and how challenging it is to remember to do and implement new habits into your routine when you feel like you’re overwhelmed by an already packed schedule. Does something here really speak to the way you are currently living? If so perhaps you need to be a space case.

If you’re already feeling challenged or helpless and time pressed and lost in a mess, this all sounds fantastic and ideal, but how and where to start?! Nike have a good point when they say “just do it”. Of course not all at once, but rather than ponder and dread and procrastinate and avoid the problem face it head on, in a manageable 10 minute chunk of time if you have to.

1. If time is an issue address your calendar first. What’s in there that’s making you feel overwhelmed, that you said “yes” to when “no” was really ok? Or what is an old habit in your routine that you know you don’t need to do? Make some time priorities for yourself, and really question the validity of “have to” outside of work and obligations that will truly cost you, or meetings and events you really will regret missing. Now you’ve likely found at least a few minutes to spare.

2. As a matter of priorities you manage to find time to do lots of tv watching, facebook creeping newsfeed cruising, internet surfing (we’ve all been click baited into an hour of time wastage before whether we like to admit it or not, and then wondered why we wasted that hour), and probably even useless/junk email checking. So when the thought crosses your mind that you should put down the remote, the mouse, or the phone because you know you’re wasting time: just do it and don’t look back. You will never regret missing a binge session of Storage Wars or 25 gifs of the most epic fails.

3. Now that you’ve got some time, start looking at your space even if you think “all I needed was a bit more time”, but have a cluttered or messy space, your mind may still have a level of overwhelm you don’t recognize due to being “used to it”. Use some of this time rather than making new habits and filling up your schedule again to make some life space, or work space, creative or family or active or spiritual or even cooking/food prep and eating space. Make your living spaces places you want to spend time and enjoy yourself. Spaces you find aesthetically pleasing.

4. If all of this seems scary and out of your comfort zone that’s a good thing. Often fear is an opportunity to move and grow into “better” people to ourselves and our family, but is a stretch outside of our idea of what we’re capable of, or challenges us to accept a different belief than one we’ve been carrying around for a long time. Be scared and do it anyhow! The reason we procrastinate and fill our time with non-meaningful activities is often our excuse not to be who we want to be or achieve what we want to achieve. Comfort zones are important and gut feelings are too, don’t get me wrong, but can we all acknowledge that many times they are hindering and holding us back? Allow yourself to be scared and move through it, don’t wait to not be scared of something new or different. You may never get over that fear, but you may step out of it and realize it’s usually very freeing and not as fearsome as you thought.

5. Embrace this idea: failure is awesome! Fear of failure to embrace a new change, let go of an old habit or something that once meant a lot to us stops us because maybe we failed at it, or something like it before, but failure is usually inevitable prior to success. You walk don’t you? Ever seen a toddler walk on the first or even the fiftieth attempt? I’m sure you get the point here, and to add to it often failure comes with fantastic lesson(s) with each attempt. We wouldn’t have most of the many amazing tools we use every day if failing was a sign we should give up on something. So go ahead and fail at any or all of this; just renew your “can-do” attitude and try try again!

The Final Key to Being Lucky!

Featured

You’ve heard it before, and if you train with CREATE you’ve also learned that it’s part of the mental training involved in our training programs, because mental fortitude it part of one’s ability to follow through with the physical training portion. After all, there’s only a little time spent with a trainer each week and it’s a trainer’s job to ensure you get the job done when we’re not around too! So here it is: gratitude. I know sometimes I sound like Oprah’s parrot, however, she really is spot on with this one. And when it comes to luck how could you possibly feel unlucky if you are already so grateful for what you already have? When you are grateful for what you already have you feel pretty darn lucky by default of your appreciation. You wouldn’t feel so grateful for your home and feel so unlucky you had to replace the deck (sound familiar?), or cracked the kitchen tile, or need to paint the dining room, especially when you’re already following through with steps 1 and 2 of luckiness: taking personal responsibility and seeing the opportunities in everything, respectively. You’ll see how that works with anyone of these examples, or most any other you can dream up. If you take responsibility for the fact that you may have bought a house with a problematic deck, or that you dropped your iron on your kitchen tile, or that you painted a sunny room a dark colour, now it’s faded unevenly and too soon, you realize this is not unlucky, but all under the umbrella of your doing and not much surprise.Step 2, recognizing opportunity: you realize you can redesign the deck to suit your needs, or have an excuse to rid the kitchen of tiles you really hated but couldn’t justify replacing, until now, or that dark colour really closed up the room and made it seem smaller than it was, but you can change it now. Now aren’t you grateful for your home and those seemingly miserable and unlucky situation? Now you know they are actually disguised opportunities of good fortune in your favour!

Yes! This works for fitness, health, and wellness too, I’ll provide another example, but abstract and seemingly unrelated examples are best for swaying opinion initially. Yes, I’m trying to sway your opinion, because few people when given the next example really want to do step 1. Now the example, a very common situation: you’re overweight and have been diagnosed pre-diabetic and have high blood pressure.

Let’s face it, it’s difficult and not fun to acknowledge that while our parents perhaps fed us junk that for the most part we are responsible for how we got to any given place when it comes to our health as adults. If genetics play a part? Especially if genetics play a part then it’s important to take responsibility for our health prior to problems arising.

Unfortunately, we can’t even begin to recover from these ills until we take responsibility, you can cover them up and control them with medication, but recovery and curing them requires first acknowledging how you got there and who’s responsible for getting you out. But rejoice, as you realize you’re the one behind the wheel, there’s grand opportunity to steer wherever you want to go, that’s step 2 of being lucky, just seeing opportunity to rectify any problem, and even improve an already good situation which would perhaps roll around once your health is in the clear.

But how to be grateful in such a seeming mess? Well there are lots:
1. It’s still all reversible with health and exercise.
2. You were diagnosed, that’s no trip in an ambulance and a hospital stay!
3. They are all common illnesses so there’s lots of science and research behind them and their treatments.
4. You can control them with drugs until diet and lifestyle take over.
5. You will not only get healthier, you’ll feel awesome!
6. And heck, you probably won’t complain when your clothes fit you better or you can get into something you love but hasn’t fit in ages.
7. You will also be pretty grateful when walking, stairs, and perhaps even some partner-based activities *wink wink* are neither painful, exhausting, or leave you with limited ability to do other lifestyle activities because your muscles are sore.
8. So thankful you don’t have to worry about having a heart attack anytime you run to catch the streetcar, chase your niece, your dog, or any need to run in general.

A list of so many for a mere example is to prove the point that there is a whole lot of luck even when it seems you’ve run out. You see luck is really not some metered commodity acquired from horseshoes, clovers, or a rabbit’s foot (God forbid, Riley O’Hare is grateful for that!), nor lessened via black cats, ladders or sidewalk cracks. Luck is a frame of mind and when those 3 steps combine forces, you’ve got a mindset that can make you the luckiest person in the world, likewise you could have everything you ever wanted, but if you blamed everyone but yourself, never saw any opportunity to omprove, and didn’t appreciate what you had when you had it all, you’d not feel very lucky at all. A lucky mindset also takes practice, you have to be aware of what you think, and choose a mindset that’s congruent with luck, most of us just react to our thoughts and get carried away with worst case scenarios and the negative.

So stay aware, grab a hold of that wheel, and look for the most appealing turnoffs (even if you didn’t see them on the map at first glance), and thank goodness you keep on rolling!

“Be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have you will never ever have enough.”
(okay okay, I’m very much) -Oprah Winfrey (‘s parrot today.)

Luck Be A Lady Today

Happy International Women’s Day! Even if you do have that extra chromosome I wish it to you too, after all where would we be as a species without half the pieces of the puzzle?!

I wouldn’t use the word feminist to describe myself. I’ve known too many and seen too much extreme behaviour and man-hating described as feminism to want to put myself in that camp. However, when it comes to fairness, from the workplace to the most basic human rights around the world, I unabashedly stand up.

That said, I serve predominantly women, and while this month’s theme is luck I could not ignore this highly relevant day. So, not just today, but every day support your fellow ladies. I’m really tired of women constantly competing in unhealthy ways rather than supporting our fellow sisters! I hope you feel gratitude for your femininity, and strength in your womanhood, and most of all lucky to be the lovely lady that you are!

And gentlemen, if you’ve made it this far, thank the ladies in your life today. At some point (likely many) being female has affected her chances at success, marginalized her safety, health, or her general chances of thriving. It has affected how she sees her potential, and whether she feels good enough based solely on what she sees in the mirror. You don’t have to acknowledge all of these details, but just a simple thank you will do.

How fortunate we all are to have our amazing sisters, mother, wife, girlfriend, and so many others in our lives. How truly lucky we are to be living in a place that acknowledges us, our roles, and our rights, offers us opportunities for growth, education, careers, and personal independence. How truly lucky we all are!

Hwo to Get Lucky: $#%&in’ Horseshoes, Commanding Genies, and Other Seemingly Unlikely Miracles

Featured

Happy March! The theme this month is Luck; thank you to the folks of Ireland for your St. Patrick’s Day inspiration, slightly less gratitude for novel but very unhealthy alcohol with artificial colour, so much fun, but not at all conducive to health. And now for what you all came for: getting lucky 😉

I hate to break it to you but luck isn’t as much about little men in stockings, shamrocks, rainbows and pots of gold as you’d hoped. In fact if it was, there would be far more men donning striped stockings and green culottes in our day-to-day lives I believe.

The 1st step to being lucky is actually personal responsibility. And now you see why luck seems so out of reach for most. We are the biggest saboteurs of our own fortune. We are always ready to point a finger at someone (or something) else or make an excuse as to why our behaviour that totally fails to serve us was acceptable under the circumstances. How can you be lucky when you don’t even prepare yourself for luck to come in and graciously assist? If you aren’t at least on your way to partial success, at what point do you think luck is going to jump in and say “hey, I know you’re not even willing to put in a half-hearted effort, in fact I’m pretty much psychic and just know what you want because really your actions barely indicate what you say you want at all, but that’s okay, I’ll just fix all that up for you.”? When you’re ready to own all that you do to make or break yourself you’ll be far more on your way to getting really lucky.

Most of the time luck isn’t nearly as random as you might think. Most of the time the luck as we know it actually comes from some action already being taken in the right direction and then “luck” comes along, but if it was just a thought in your head and you were in fact doing nothing (or worse, the opposite of what you needed to be) that luck might not come to you because it wasn’t obvious you were after something seriously. Let’s say you want to lose 40 pounds, and you tell your friend that you’ve started working out a couple times a week and invite them to join you sometime, you’re out to lunch and you choose a grilled-cheese because you’ve been really craving one and this restaurant makes one to die for, but you get greens on the side and soda water. While you’re dining your friend tells you, ”No, you should come workout with me”, their brother-in-law owns a gym and has told your friend to come by anytime with friends for a complimentary class. You go and make an awesome new connection with a couple of the class participants who happen to have a small training group twice a week, and they keep each other accountable the rest of the time. They invite you to join them as one friend just moved way and they’re looking for someone to be a 4th in their group. “Oh my gosh, I’m just so lucky to have randomly met them on this one-time visit , Is what you might say about that series of events, this is true, that’s pretty fortunate. Now, same scenario but you don’t invite your friend to join you for a workout (so who knows if you’re actually doing it) and instead of the salad and soda you get the fries and upgrade to poutine. You seem far less committed, and your friend never mentions their great offer because why waste their time? To them you are clearly all talk and no action.

This is not to say that you don’t really really really want to lose 40 pounds, but that reality is stuck in your mind and the world isn’t seeing it. You have to be responsible for your personal behaviour because while you generally don’t have to seek out luck for it to find you, you do have to take some action to get noticed. Action that speaks to your intention to actually follow through on what you say you want.

Step 1 to luck: No whining, complaining, excuses, justifying or blaming. These usually only serve to console your ego into acting like you aren’t at the helm of your ship. That’s lying to yourself, even if things are “out of control” nobody has more power over your life than you do. So stop it taking a big unlucky dump on your life! It can be challenging and requires responsibility, accountability, and taking action, but it’s a much more rewarding lifestyle, after all it leaves you open to frequent bouts of getting lucky!

Drop It Like It’s HOT! Your Diet And Why It Won’t REALLY Work

Featured

Will your diet help you lose weight? Sure. “For how long?” or,” at what cost to my health?”  are the important questions you have to ask yourself! Especially since this is your what, umpteenth time around the diet track, only to realize you’re back at the beginning, often times even worse off than before. This isn’t just you, it’s so so many people who don’t realize what exactly they’re doing to their metabolisms and their bodies overall as they run this vicious cycle. Here are the 5 things essential to your health and success when it comes to your health, weight loss and the way you eat.

If you take nothing else away from this let it be Michael Pollan’s (he’s a brilliant food and health guy with several New York Times best-sellers) advice: Eat (real) food. Not too much. Mostly plants. Part of me hesitates to expand upon this. Its beauty is in its simplicity. But I’ll add these small nuggets: real food has no ingredient list, or a very very short one consisting of a bunch of foods that have no ingredient list, for example, there is no ingredient list for tomatoes, they just are. Salsa has a short ingredient list consisting of foods that just are, making salsa, homemade of course, real food as well. Not too much, is not too much, not overfilling yourself, not allowing yourself to eat what you know is too much but you’re not full because of years of stretching your stomach with too large portion sizes. Know what it’s like to be a little bit hungry and then eat until you’re full-ish, not stuffed. Tell me the last time groaning in stuffed pain was actually enjoyable anyhow. Mostly plants, because that’s how we evolved, eating mostly plants, so that’s what our bodies like to digest, keeps us healthy with the nutrients we need, and maintains our figure.

You will need to choose a healthy lifestyle of which a healthy diet with some rules –written more in sand than stone—will have to apply. One of the reasons diets don’t work is because most of the time you can’t do them forever, you would die of starvation, malnutrition, or disease. So when you stop because it’s over or because it takes soul-sucking will and energy to stay on, meanwhile feeling like a pile of crap, you eventually put the weight back on. And while you were on that diet you also likely damaged your metabolism further because most of them don’t maintain proper blood sugar levels or mess with the body’s hormone systems (among a long list of things that it can be negatively affecting depending on the diet), when you return to your normal eating habits it is desperate to ensure you never “starve” it of its needs or wants again and will slow your metabolism often causing a greater weight gain than before you dieted. So what you need are some simple guidelines to live by, ones that from time-to-time you can break because there is usually a time that real life calls for ice cream cake, for example. If you are seeking easy logical healthy diet guidelines I recommend Michael Pollan’s book Food Rules, for full lifestyle programs request a complimentary consultation.

 Nutrient abundance is key to overall health and permanent weight loss. There are many lifestyle diets outside of my recommendations that are also sustainable for longer periods, what is most important is that your healthy diet is actually healthy, abundant in nutrients. This is why I say agree with mostly plants, they are rick with nutrients that our body needs. Most Westerners are overfed and still starving for nutrients, it has been hypothesized by many that overeating is highly correlated with poor diets because, on top of addictive substances like sugar and MSG, people are calorically overfed and yet they’re starving for nutrients their bodies really need! Whether this is true or not you leave a lot less space in your stomach for wannabe food if you fill it with nutrient-rich veggies, fruits, whole grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, healthy fats, and naturally-raised meats. Your body will have less tendency to maintain excess fat stores if you feed it real food abundant in nutrients it needs.

Exercise, the other 40%. You can lose weight on a diet without exercise, but again your results are unlikely to last. Exercise does not need to be “hardcore”, but it serves many purposes in over healthy lifestyle and long term weight loss. Some will tell you it’s only 30% of the equation, some will even say 20%, I’m going to give an experiential opinion here and say that 20% doesn’t account for long term maintenance. Exercise is 40% if you want to look at long term weight maintenance and health benefits, and especially if you want to feel awesome (remember you quit the diet because you felt like crud), as there are lots of feel good benefits of exercise. It doesn’t have to be a huge time commitment and you can choose to do activities you like, but exercise is a fundamental part of the equation.

Always choose quality over minimal calories. Artificial sweeteners are a perfect example for this. They are poison, actually poison, aspartame turns to formaldehyde in your body (yup like the dead-people-preserver, and also a neurotoxin), acesulfame potassium or K contains a known carcinogen, sucralose has heavy metals arsenic and methanol, saccharin is a coal tar compound and associated with bladder cancer. They contain few to no calories and yet prompt greater calorie consumption and in the meantime (because your body doesn’t know your ingesting anything so it’s still hungry) are doing a disservice to the body that you’re trying to otherwise have run smoothly and efficiently. It is not only about the calories, I’m sure it’s clear at this point that while sugar is quite bad for you it is still better than an artificial sweetener. More calories of (real, check the ingredients on these there should be like 3) sour cream or cream cheese are 100% better for you than their low-fat or fat-free counterparts. Fat-free sour cream is not possible, it’s just fake, cream by its very nature is fat, making fat-free sour cream not even real food. Am I saying you should eat sour cream? Not often and only if you’re going to truly enjoy it, but there is a place for sour cream as there is for ice-cream cakes, it’s of a quality incomparable to a food invented in a lab, and your body will thank you for not poisoning it even if you do gain a few ounces.

CAUTION! Ignore Bright Shiny Objects

I admit it, I sometimes suffer from bright shiny object syndrome. As you and I both know bright shiny objects are far more often a bit of broken glass, a shiny quarter, or a 4 year-old’s glittery art remnants than they are diamonds, gold nuggets, or even fool’s gold!

That is to say sometimes I’m easily distracted from where my focus needs to be. With all of the distractions provided by today’s technology, a culture based on productivity, and an emphasis on multi-tasking I’m certainly clear on the fact that I am not alone in this.

Now you want to start taking care of your health, fitness, wellness, or achieve any other goal and how do you do that when it doesn’t seem like you’ve got enough time in your day as it is?! The answer is actually super simple: focus.

Focus on what you want.  We spend so much time focussing on what we don’t want or what we fear, or what could come of a situation. Our brains are fantastic imagination machines. You may think as an adult you’ve lost your creativity. I challenge you to pay attention to all of the scenarios your mind comes up with in a day and tell me you’re not creative. You may not be producing stories that you like, but you’re creative. So start creating what you want. Catch your mind producing the worst-case-apocalyptic scenario, and then reframe it to the exact opposite to produce the actual result you want, and focus on that instead.

Focus on your time. For me sometimes that means airplane mode on my devices; desperate times call for desperate measures! It’s actually not extreme at all, despite I’m sure your jaw dropped at such a thought. Never have we been so readily at the beck and call of others’ and their “need” to contact us immediately and get an immediate response. Never has our time and focus been so divided. So as I write this, my phone is on silent and I’m signed out of email. When I do yoga for myself, am training or teaching a client or class, respectively, you bet I’m not answering. This isn’t rude or dismissive, the fact is we are all entitled to our own time or not to divide our focus among several tasks, and we can focus on others more intently during our time with them if we have some space to ourselves. Having boundaries on instant availability (or not) allows you to keep focus on your goals and what really matters in that moment.

Focus on your priorities. What do you actually need to do today? How much are you trying to cram in? What can you give up that is totally distracting you from your actual goals? You may have completely dismissed the fact that you have “no time” to exercise or to make healthy meals, but you had time to watch the whole Breaking Bad series over the course of the past 3 weeks?! Those are your priorities then, you may not want to admit that television is a priority, but on some level it is if that’s where your focus is. Sort out what you’re willing to give up in order to achieve your goals. There will be some things you aren’t willing to annihilate from your life, but maybe you could watch less television or make yourself do 20 minutes of exercise for every hour watched (because the average is 5 hours/day, you’d actually get quite fit). Or maybe it’s Facebook, or YouTube, maybe it’s not even technology-related, but you know you spend way more time doing it than you should, or that it affects your ability to get other things done. The point is to set your priorities and intentions and focus on those, do not let the bright shiny objects pull you from your path, no matter how enticing they may be.

People always seem to get car-related analogies so, look where you want to go. If you’re not getting results something here surely “clicked” with you, because if you look where you want to go and keep your eyes on the road you should be getting at least some results, even if you’re not driving a fast car. If you need help getting on track with your fitness, health and wellness, if your lifestyle habits needs an overhaul, if you need a nudge and a reminder every once in a while to get back on track, or if you just don’t know how to create a plan and maintain it, CREATE has plans and programs to help you, and it’s all tailored to what you need.
