Monday Motivation.

I thought this Monday Motivation was appropriate for AHB'S 11th bday. The biggest lessons I have learned as a small business owner is that the "right time" will never be right now and that imperfect action is often better than no action.

A huge thank you to the clients who have supported us along the way and an even bigger THANK YOU to my amazing team. We would not be where we are without you 💚🍒

Today's reason to join the Healthy Point Training and Running Series: these things.

As runners, strength training plays an important role in keeping us healthy and running at our best. But what exercises should we be doing? How much weight should we use? When should we be incorporating it so it benefits vs takes away from our running? We already run several hours a week, how do we incorporate strength efficiently into our program?

Sound familiar and ready for some guidance? Program details and registration link: Ahealthybalanceinc.com/healthypointrunning

Today's reason to join the Healthy Point Running Training series: foam rolling! Most runners know they should foam roll consistently but either don't know what to do with it or don't set aside the time to do it. Mobility matters! We will be holding weekly foam rolling workshops weekly throughout your training to help you stay healthy and injury free.

There is nothing worse than going to make dinner and finding your produce slimy or with little spots of mold. Especially now with trying to do larger and less frequent grocery shopping trips, I had lost more than a few servings of vegetables until I found these Rubbermaid Food Saver containers! Holy moly they're the best. These Brussel sprouts were purchased over a week ago and were still crisp and fresh. I am definitely giving my stamp of approval ⭐️⭐️

#Repost @gisellebuchanan with @get_repost
This guide by @deepaviyer for @buildingmovementproject has been floating around for a few months now in the social justice sphere. A friend shared it to her stories today and I remembered how useful a resource it is in this current moment (of what some might feel to be overwhelm) as a way to strategize and revision what being an active participant in a movement could look like. I never want to say people ‘should’ do a thing without then providing tangible material to reflect on about how. Our roles as change makers in this current time are directly related to our access, our gifts, and our skills. There are many roles here that I once didn’t think could be enough for creating change, but that would only be true if we were focused on individuals. The reality is the movement is a body composed of different parts and each of those parts are necessary in the function of the whole. Everyone can’t be on the frontlines. Some of our disabled, immunocompromised and elderly community members are part of this group. Neither can every person be any other one of these roles. If everyone is telling stories, rarely does any work get done. Things change when we align our gifts for a greater purpose. When we offer ourselves and combine our varied strengths. I have been appreciating how folks have been coming together to offer healing services, free herbal medicine, creating models of what equity can look like, protesting, divesting, redistributing wealth, making art, writing songs and poems not only about what we can no longer accept but also where we are headed. There is so much being done and so many ways to get started. I am going to link to the article by Deepa and a pdf guide for you to print on the links page of my website found in my bio. Sending love and strength as we destroy and dream and build.

One of our AHB Rockstars posted this the other day... As her trainer, how would you expect us to respond?

"No excuses! JUST DO IT"?
"You have to EARN your bikini bod before a beach trip"?

Nope... none of the above. Instead we had a conversation about motivation and why she didn't feel like working out.
•Would a (appropriately socially distanced 😉) trip to the beach help her reset mentally? Maybe it's a mental health over physical workout kind of day.
•How had her consistency been the rest of the week? Sliding for several workouts in a row is an indicator of a bigger issue vs just an off day.
•Would a short, quick workout and then the beach be a good compromise? Sometimes just getting started with a workout is the hardest part and not feeling like you HAVE to workout for a full hour helps.

In the end, she decided that she was tired, but the kind of tired that may actually be helped by the energy you get from a workout. So she did one of our short pre-recorded workouts and felt better after!

The message about exercise often gets distorted and often it is done by the fitness industry. We start to feel like we have to workout every day, that if we don't do a workout we failed at something, that our trainer is going to be mad at us for skipping. As a trainer, I can guarantee you that sometimes a mental reset and opting for the beach trip is just what you need. If more days than not you are moving your body, you're doing ok.

When you are having these moments of struggle I recommend a quick self check in. (And trust me we all do) Why don't I want to exercise? What are my goals? Would I feel better if I did exercise? Would a different type of exercise than I planned on be a better option for me today?
