So if we are friends here on FB, you know we are a big-time Disney family. My first trip was at age 3, and I've lost count of how many times I've been since then. One of my most favorite parts about all those trips is that we ALWAYS find something new and different to do at Walt Disney World.
I often say to my friends that I don't know a lot about a lot...but I DO know a lot about three areas:
☑️fitness and health
Disney can be super overwhelming to a newbie and frankly, I'm too in love with all things Disney to let anyone go there and not have a magical time.
🌟Friends don't let friends miss the magic.🌟
So rather than focus on a fitness and health tip or transformation on Tuesdays, I'd love to share some of my Disney knowledge and experience with all of you on Tuesdays...and if you're planning a trip, hopefully these tips help you have an amazing time in the happiest place on earth!
Short list of what to bring the parks:
1. BLACK SHARPIE MARKER - both super FAT (Mickey needs a fat pen) and regular. These markers are necessities for autographs and general use.
2. A couple of plastic baggies. Myriad of uses. Snacks, ice, keep autograph books dry.
3. Sunscreen, especially stick. Easy to carry, easy to apply.
4. A snack that won't melt.
5. Patience, flexibility, and a heart open to the magic.
As much as I'd LOVE to be your resource for all things health, fitness, and nutrition...it would be cool to be your resource for other stuff too....Disney, parenting, inspiration, motivation.
Tell me...if you've been to Disney, what's a park essential for you?
This is Angie. She's a working wife and mom of two young kids. When our paths crossed she enjoyed fitness but wasn't getting where she wanted to be because she was missing one key ingredient....CONSISTENCY.
"The biggest difference between these pictures is something you can't see.
There was a change in my mind.
I finally decided that I was done with my excuses," Angie said.
Once she decided it was HER time, she took off and hasn't looked back.
"I distinctly remember the ah-ha moment while I was talking to Julie. She said, 'If you want to see change, you have to be consistent. You don't have to spend 2 hours in the gym each day, but you have to be consistent. You have to do something every day.' It was at that point when I realized I could do that. So I just started moving more. I started making one better choice each day. More water, one more serving of veggies, etc. Since then I've adopted a personal mantra: Consistency = Change'.
I lost 20 pounds, but more importantly have gained an incredible amount of health and confidence.
I'm so grateful that my path crossed with Julie's, because of her support and belief in me, I'm now able to pay that forward as a coach and help others start their journey too!
In one of my favorite Disney movies Ratatouille , the chef says "All people can cook...but not all people SHOULD cook."
I definitely fall into the latter category. :)
And while I may not consider myself a cook, because I am so passionate about making healthy eating a priority in our busy family, I'm always on the lookout for easy recipes -- and here is one of my favorites, from one of my favorite people.
This gluten-free Pumpkin Recipe comes from one of my challengers, Jennifer Reidy via her blog: Froment Free.
Jennifer's blog is fabulous! Please feel free to share this recipe and Jennifer's blog with others!! Will you let me know if you'll be adding it to your holiday menu this year? I'd love to see pictures!
In everything - exercise AND life -, getting outside of our comfort zone is where the magic happens. The comfort zone might be, well, comfortable. But it's also where we plateau. If we want to see and feel change, we've got to move out of that space into a new place.
When we are looking true results - mental and physical -, we have to be willing to get a little (or a lot) uncomfortable. We have to be willing to push harder than we think we can push...because we are capable of doing so much more...we're so much stronger than we think we are!
One of the keys to getting out of that comfort zone is to shorten the duration of the intense workouts but UP the INTENSITY. Push HARDER but for short periods of time. Workouts such as Insanity Max30, Hammer and Chisel, and 21 Day Fix Extreme work on that principle. Shorter time, greater intensity.
