Goal Setting - Your Seven Day Workout Schedule

Sun, August 27, 2017

Hi Everyone! Last week we touched on mindset, and this week we are talking about goal setting and goal getting! This week I posted about setting a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed every morning. The feeling of rolling out my mat at sunrise and getting my workout done before the day even begins motivates me every single day! Sometimes I even lie in bed waiting for it to be a reasonable hour so I can get up and start my Pilates sesh! If you are more of a night owl or you circumstances make an evening Pilates workout your only option, a few quick tips can help you get your session done! Instead of changing into your comfiest pants when you get home from work, try changing into your favourite workout gear. Have your mat and equipment within sight and reach as soon as you get home, it can be hard to ignore it if they are staring you in the face! Make dinner your reward for finishing your workout and just think of how much sweeter it will be flicking on Netflix and relaxing after a great workout! If you're looking for some fresh inspiration, try making this week’s workout schedule your daily meeting with me. I’ll be there…promise!

Roll Out Your Mat! - Your Seven Day Workout Schedule

Sun, August 20, 2017

Hi Everyone! This week I want you to focus on your mindset so you can be the happiest, healthiest version of you possible! Setting in place healthy, strong habits will not only keep you accountable, but also ensure long term success. Rather than viewing your diet or exercise as a plan or program you follow, view them both as just how you will be eating and moving from here on! The idea of a diet/program/plan implies that it is only for the short term to get a certain result, before going back to old habits and old ways. Instead, adopt the mindset that you eat in a way that nourishes you, and move in a way that conditions, strengthens and tones your body that is sustainable for life! Ditch the idea of exercise being a chore, and embrace moving everyday as a way to look after your body and to feel and look your best. Follow this weekly schedule and discover just how much you can fall in love with moving your body. Make it a part of your daily routine, just like brushing your teeth or showering...it's non negotiable! See you on the mat!
