Tips & Motivation

Holiday Tips

If Christmas and the following holidays have you worrying about how to stay on track to a healthier new you, then worry no more because I have some great ideas I would like to share & a couple of links at the top that will get you started!

  • Stay active & stay moving if possible.
  • proportion your plate, make sure you have a mix of everything
  • eat dessert; just keep in mind how much of it
  • gain some support and share your stories of your fitness goals and achievements
  • meet some likeminded people who also enjoy fitness
  • lessen the stress & smile; mental health is just as important

Share these ideas with your peers & make it something you do each holiday after the next! 

I will not be posting tomorrow because of it being Christmas, look forward to hearing from me again sometime after Christmas.  Enjoy this holiday with family, friends, and laughter.

If you are spending this Christmas/holiday alone, keep your head up and stay positive! Dedicate your time helping other families and volunteering at local churches, soup kitchens, or local places. It’s never easy to go through a holiday alone, but it can be done and sometimes it has to be done for whatever reason it may be.  I believe the beauty of a holiday comes from the person’s heart.  Presents, food, peers those are all something that goes into a holiday but it is the person’s heart that makes a holiday worthwhile.  Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday &Happy New Year! Please comment, share & continue to follow me.

Sincerely

A number is a Number

ScaleIf you have a problem with a scale its because you have allowed the numbers to determine who you are.  Solutions to the problem: 

  1. weigh yourself with an open mind
  2. ask yourself when you get off the scale is this healthy
  3. don’t look for results, look for a number then find results by using a solution
  4. have a goal weight & a plan (for after you are off the scale; NOT BEFORE)
  5. stop weighing yourself for self gratification & belittlement
  6. Don’t pay attention to the media (YOU DETERMINE WHAT’S HEALTHY FOR YOU)
  7. keep positive & stop comparing yourself to others
  8. weigh yourself same day and time, once a week. no more (so you can keep tabs on your journey)
  9. stop punishing yourself
  10. stop talking about your weight; no one cares as much as you do and you are the only one who holds the key to where you want to be

Introduction- I am Shay-lon

Hello & Welcome 

This is my first blog 

 & this is an introduction to the author-myself

I would just like to mention, I have never taken blogging seriously.. until today. Today is the day I start blogging regularly.  Do you want to know why? I graduate this May, and my life is just beginning to unfold, unravel with surprises and spike my anxiety! I never thought the day would come where I could finally graduate with a college degree.  Its exciting but its starting to drive me insane when I think about all that i want to do in my field/major & how to get where I want to be.  Does anyone ever have their life planned out for after graduation? OR does anyone know how to make “grown up” decisions anymore… because I think I am lost and I have been a “grown up” for 5 years now (I am 23 now).  Want to know what my major is? Exercise Science.  Yes, it’s about “fitness” and “wellness” but for your sake, I have managed to go beyond that narrow way of thinking & for that reason.. I am now writing my own blogs.  I hope to be a personal trainer, yes, and maybe own a gym (although its not necessary), wellness coach, corporate fitness muskateer and fitness guru of all types.. with a sprinkle of travelling & meeting new people who are like minded in my field and create this huge empire.. & finally being a mogul of “health and fitness”.  Now you can understand my frustrations, I have big dreams!  I am going to list a few things about me.. so I can save time & get straight to the point…

  1. I have two younger siblings, one who is in college (whom i’ll refer to plenty) & the other is 7 (and he might be part of the reason why I make some of you smile when reading my blog.
  2. Part time job helping the mentally handicap/full time student
  3. I reside in Ohio (yes it’s cold about this time of year & I hate it)
  4. I have lived in Colorado and Texas ( I loved Colorado)
  5. I live with roommates (I’ll probably talk about some of them as well)
  6. I graduate May 2016 in case no one read the paragraph stating that
  7. I am 5’8 (this is important when i start to refer to myself in blogs)
  8. my weight will be announced in many of my blogs .. yippee for me.
  9. I am a female. 
  10. I workout 4-5 times a week & working on eating much healthier .. 
  11. I am not perfect.. so when it comes to my blogs, read with no expectations of learning anything and leave here realizing I just blew your mind
  12. I appreciate all comments (negative and positive alike) only because I can respect honesty.
  13. I will try really hard to post everyday, but don’t get mad if i skip some days.. i have a life too.
  14. Sometimes my grammar is excellent, other days.. I just say “bunk it” they get the point.
  15. It’s a requirement to get to know me, because otherwise I may offend you (not on purpose)

Purpose of my blogs (after this one)

I want to help people to realize health and fitness should be a lifestyle change, should not be used as a New Years resolution or a fad.  I hope to open up the eyes of the blind & arrogant, I want to educate myself and others on health , fitness, wellness, mental and physical.  I just want to make someone smile & choose to be happy with who they are and how they look.  Society has failed you & I want everyone to know.. being skinny is not the goal.. being healthy & living healthier.. that’s important.  You can be any size and still be unhealthy, don’t judge a book by its Cover!!! get facts before judging people behind their backs. Keep an open mind & follow me on my path..Thank you for reading

It was nice to meet you.

sincerely,

Shay-lon
