THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

LIVE FHITTHE TIME IS NOW!

I wrote two weeks ago that a change is coming. Well, My FIERCE Friends, now is the time to share. Next Saturday, November 14th will be my last class at The Fhitting Room.

GRATEFUL

My time with this amazing group of FHIT pros will be time I’m forever grateful for. I appreciate all I have learned in this space and the outstanding clientele I have had the privilege of working with. There is nothing I would change about this past year and you should know that this group of people will forever be a part of my fHamily.

TRUTH and FOCUSMe and D WED Nites

Human nature is tricky. We want answers to questions, we want to make sense from what’s happened…we want reason. I know you’ll want to know “WHY?”. I don’t have an answer for you. I love TFR, but changes were made. Instead of focusing energy on the “why” I invite you to bring joy to the “what’s next”. The answer to that I will have for you soon, I promise! Focus on that excitement and remember that without change in circumstance there is never as much growth as when you are forced to make a shift.

THE NOW

I can’t wait for this week to share in my excitement and celebrate you all at TFR. Monday morning, Wednesday eve and Saturday I will be swingin’, thrustin’ and you know there’s always a lil twerkin’ in YOUR honor. Thank you for the past 16 months and all of the bliss you’ve brought into my world. I’m forever grateful. Now go sign up!

A CHANGE IS COMIN’

SO HOODOUR DAY WILL COME
Changes will only make you stronger and show you who you REALLY are and who you were meant to be. Everything is starting to become clear and I’m excited about where the future is taking me.
You’ll see that I’m no longer teaching the 5:30PM on Thursday nights at SWERVE, but you still have LOADS of chances to WERK with me this week. There are more changes to come next week, so stay tuned!
I hope you had an amazing Halloween and “fell behind” perfectly with the extra hour of sleep. NOW it’s time to get all ready for the week ahead! Book your classes now! Check out where to find me…

LET’S #GETFIERCE TOGETHER!

I’m Getting the Boot!

OK Kids…I’m embracing all that is HealthClass2.0 and “Trying Something New”! It’s 8:30AM on the east coast and I’m prepping (aka super nervous and drinking water) to take my first Barry’s Bootcamp class at 9:45AM in Tribecca. I’m going to edit this post when I get home and let you know how it goes. I figure if Kim, Khloe and Kourtney can handle it so can I (or at least that’s what I’ll be telling myself when the treadmill’s at an incline of 15 and I feel like I’m dying!)

What are you going to try that’s NEW today?

Chat soon!

We’re TOTALLY GETTIN’ FIERCE(R) TODAY!

So F#@%1#* Stressed!

Are YOU?

I have to say with my line of work my stress level is fairly minimal. The biggest of my worries throughout my days are thinking about paying bills (which always manage to be paid), wondering if the train will come on time, hoping that my students will LOVE and be totally inspired by my classes. It’s pretty minimal, my stress level.

I’m not curing cancer or running the country, but I am responsible for providing a service to others. My job not only brings me joy and happiness, but it brings (or so they tell me) others happiness as well. Ahhh, isn’t that lovely!? So then, why should I have any feelings at all of stress? One thing that all of my stressful thoughts have in common is that they all haven’t happened yet. They’re worries…what ifs, silly really. If I lived in the moment then I wouldn’t have nearly any stress at all. I don’t live in the jungle and need to run from lions or anything. I thrive on city life and am invigorated by traffic, crazy people screaming as they walk down the sidewalk…I’m saying NO to stress. I’m living my life in the moment. Easy to say, right? Here are some reasons WHY to live in the moment and NOT SUCCUM to all the worries. Below there are also a few easy steps we can take to achieve this STRESS FREE or much less stressed state.

The WHYS This is the part where I tell you what stress does to us physically.

THE BIGGON’ Stressful thoughts or situations produce a hormone in the body called cortisol. Cortisol is secreted from the adrenal glands and is a good thing when it’s used properly. What it was meant for in evolutionary purposes was for heightened awareness in “fight or flight” circumstances. It was meant to be released into our systems in a short term “bursts”, …aka like running from lions. With our societal evolution we are “s#sttressed” not by the fear of being eaten, but by SO many other factors. This ups our cortisol levels for a sustained time producing the below negative effects:

  • Impaired cognitive performance
  • Suppressed thyroid function (think slowed metabolic function)
  • Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia
  • Decreased bone density
  • Decrease in muscle tissue
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body, slowed wound healing, and other health consequences
  • Increased abdominal fat, which is associated with a greater amount of health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body. Some of the health problems associated with increased stomach fat are heart attacks, strokes and the development of metabolic syndrome.

The HOWS This where I give you ideas to counterbalance the effects of all the stress in our world. Check out these former blog posts and ideas for getting your mind and your bod back in balance.

Try one or all. See what works best for you and commit yourself to getting a bit more balanced each day!
