You Get Tired Of It…

You Get Tired Of It…

And eventually become sick of it…figuratively and physically. 

What do you do????

You STOP!!!

As a coach, I often have the answers for others, but sometimes not for myself. But knowing myself, I have to constantly remind myself, and remind myself to remind myself again , and again (lol). This is a mindful activity that some people do, but many of us don’t actually have that ability as it is not a part of how we operate, and trust me it is not a skill. However, we can still enhance it.

When you get tired of what ever “IT” is, take this moment as an opportunity to reevaluate, readjust, redo. MEDITATE! or do whatever it is that helps you reconnect with yourself. I had to find what works for me, and sometimes it is more than one thing, however, the idea is to rid the negative distractions, and to become more at peace.

THINK about it. How can you receive anything, if you’re not open? How can you see with your eyes closed? We do a lot of things to distract ourselves, and continue the habit of the distraction, and yet never quite stop, sometimes not even pause for a moment. We just go and go and go……… next? It is a never ending cycle, and then we wonder why things aren’t progressing as they should. We are evolving in a lot of different ways, but maybe we need to evolve more internally. We are so fast to get somewhere, then before you know it, we aren’t really getting anywhere. We’re just spinning the wheels. 

This is why it is important to STOP! Breathe! Listen! and Trust!

STOP the negativity, by stopping what you are doing. Even when you entertain the negative, you are just as bad as the negative. Stop it. When you complain about someone else’s complaint, belief, lack of, gain, etc. You are just like them…. You ever think about the crazy stuff going on in the world, and see or hear others going back and forth about the rights and wrongs, but none of it is to remedy the actual problem itself. This means that we are the problem! 

Breathe. Know that what we cannot control is out of our control for a reason. It can be difficult to accept that, but once you do, you set yourself free to focus on what you can control. Like YOUrself. Some people tend to have control issues, wanting to manipulate situations, or others, because it makes them feel superior. But what better satisfaction than to have complete control over yourself and your life. Are you really in control? Don’t give that power to the distraction(s).

Listen. Because a lot of us just talk, and talk, and talk, sometimes about NOTHING! And it is annoying. How can one learn if they talk more than listen? All of us don’t have the answers, but we can all answer questions together. We can all come to a solution, but do we all want to Listen to each other?

Trust. You are tired, mentally, physically, maybe even emotionally, but trust that it means something to you. Think of putting  a puzzle together. When you get tired, the universe is trying to tell you something, but you have to find the missing pieces to put them together. This takes time. But this is why it is important to Stop, Breathe, Listen, and Trust. You have to put time into what you want, and sometimes you have to do absolutely nothing to figure it all out.

Life’s like a scavenger hunt, 

But….what will you collect along the way?

He Said He Loves Me…

He Said He Loves Me…

Of course he did. And maybe he thought he did.

What does love mean to you? Maybe that’s what it was all along, and maybe we were both loving each other wrong.

We loved differently………

He said he misses me. And maybe he does.

But on the other hand all of that missing was the feeling I don’t miss when we once was.

It’s too late for all of the that, so he can miss me with the bullcrap. 

He said I was right. And I knew he would say that. They always do.

But it was never about being right or wrong, it was about being true…all along.

All the things he says to me now, doesn’t even matter now…..

I’ve always thought that was funny. The similarities of one wanting something so badly back then, and all of the sudden now the other.

It’s too late for all of that, so he can tell me he loves me, he can tell me he misses me, and that I was right all along…None of those sayings matter at this point, especially when you could have said back then.

Maybe those feelings weren’t valid then as they are now, but so are mine. I thought, and I’ve said a lot, but after time apart, I realized that I was right, and where I am now is where I belong.

Too bad you had to learn this way, but what more can I say…

Don’t 4Get 2See Da Bea.you.ty of it @LL…

Don’t 4Get 2See Da Bea.you.ty of it @LL…

This is how you’ll keep your frequency going. Find the positive, and don’t be afraid to show it…..

Go ahead and look back, but don’t ever allow the past to attack. You’ve gone through enough already, so instead reflect….

What have you learned?

What will you take with you towards your upcoming lessons? You have another chance, and you will continue to have them, such a blessing.

See the beauty of it all. The ups, the downs, the smiles the frowns. All of these experiences are here to guide you, which way are you willing to take?

Which path is real, and which one is fake?

The action is up to us, so what will it take?

You are standing after that last fall, and that last one was pretty tough. Sometimes you feel like not getting up…..but you did, and it was good enough.

Realize what you did, how far you came, don’t ever water-down your mountain. It’ll turn into a big clod of mud, instead of an accomplishment. Your little successes deserve some recognition too. Give yourself more credit, and love yourself a little more too.

Remind yourself to keep going, but when you look back, know that you had to overcome that. You are here now, the past is back there now, but being here has allowed you to be prepared for the next round.

It’ll be easier this time around.

And you got it, the resilience you have is of nothing short of brilliance. Sometimes you see the test, and other times you feel tested. Being an overachiever, you already passed it, so think ahead, and enhance it.

See the beauty of it all.

You are still wearing that crown, no matter how many times you fall down.

And you do it with grace,standing there face to face with yourself. Only you are holding yourself back, and you know that.

But this time, looking in the mirror, you reflect once again. It’s been digested before, and this time you’re positively sure.

The beauty of it all, quite the figure of speech. It’s more than an external visual, and more like the state of BEing.

It is reflected from how you are feeling…

Inhale, I Exhale/Excel…

Inhale, I Exhale/Excel…

I Feel Too Much, so I’d rather do. And I can’t quite describe it, it’s like a rabbit stuck in a hole, and suddenly it hops right out of it. I must do, because if I don’t the feelings will subdue, and I refuse to lose. Oh my God, the feelings are becoming stronger, I have to do something, otherwise it’ll turn into a big bother. I have to allow these feelings to guide me, what is my purpose? What are you trying to advise me? Inhale, I Exhale, I’m learning to take it all in. Inhale, I Excel, I knew this would happen, my intuition is my ultimate captain. I learn to trust myself more by ignoring the distractions. They are just there to disssssstract, and I’m not here for all of that. Inhale, I Exhale, I’m feeling a little better. Sometimes the feelings become so intense, I feel as if I’m under the weather. I’m not. I’m just in my feelings, trying to sort things out, trying to get the their meanings. Inhale, I Excel. I refuse to hold myself back. Anyone who knows me, knows that, so why would you expect me to allow you to do that? Inhale, I Exhale. I love, and I forgive. Continuously. Life is like that sometimes, you breathe in, taking it for what it is. You breathe out, letting the lessons of life flow about. Inhale…. now Exhale/Excel it all out.

I Feel Too Much…

I Feel Too Much…

I feel too much, so I’d rather not… 

But when I do, I sit back and reflect. Now why did I do that? There comes a time when your alter ego appears, and at the same time you don’t have control.  Well you do,  but it’s your alter ego doing the thinking, and behaving.  Now how do you feel? Different now huh? 

I feel too much, I’d rather not… but I do,  and even when I don’t feel like feeling, I still feel. I’ve come to embrace it, a lot of us don’t have that ability,  so why not. To feel is a gift, don’t  look at it as a curse. It’s what you do with it, your truest intentions, and sometimes it hurts. Can you feel it? You rather not, because of the simplicity of  not feeling. Not wanting to make life complicated.  Too easy. Nothing is simple,  so why not feel? Why not get closer to the  potential? Why not feel alive while living? 

Don’t be afraid to feel,  but rather feel to make a difference,  to love, and to live…it’s really that simple, if you are able to feel…

Why The Perfect Workout Is Perfect For You…

Why The Perfect Workout Is Perfect For You…

If you are becoming more serious about investing into your health and physical being, joining a health club can really help you get started, and stay on track.

At The Perfect Workout, we care about your goals as much as you do, if not more! We understand how challenging it is working out sometimes, we get it, it is not fun, and it is not suppose to be. Instead, we focus on the positives, creating and reaching personal goals, while also being there to support you 100%. You don’t need to be in the studio to talk to us, you can reach out any time and we’ll be there. We know how badly you want to reach your goals, so your time if very valuable to us.

This brings up one of the reasons why The Perfect Workout is perfect. We value your time. Our 20 minute training session is for targeting specific muscle groups while also getting in some cardio. I like to call this the 2 in 1. Unlike other gyms, our private studios are in a clinical setting giving us the space to train one on one without distractions. We are there to help you focus while making sure you’re working out properly. 

Working out properly will get you closer to your goals. And this is another reason why we’re perfect. All of the personal trainers were trained to pay special attention to your form, so we can help you correct it. This allows you to strengthen the muscle without the help of other body parts.

Preventing injuries is at a higher rate because of our super slow technique, and this makes us perfect, because of its safety. You wouldn’t have to worry about high impact workouts, because the machines help intensify the workouts using heavy weights with a low impact method. Going slow allows the muscle to stimulate more effectively, because you’re fighting the momentum at a heavy weight. Imagine powering through the weight using momentum, and not paying attention to your form. This can result in a disaster.

We strive on perfection by implementing our core values: Enlightened Exercise, Teamwork, Candor, Integrity, and Customer Service. We find each and one of these extremely important, and take much pride on achieving these with every single one of our clients.

Additionally, we are personal, so you have support which is one of the most important things to have while making a life change, or simply living an active lifestyle. If you want more information about our program, please go to www.ThePerfectWorkout.com. We also launched a nutrition program, and you don’t have to be a client already to join, or to get more information. 

If interested, go to our website, locate a trainer near you and ask them about the program, or the nutrition program, and we’ll do our part to assist you from there.
