It’s been a full 48 hours of total immersion into our healthy weekend. I’ve completed 4 workouts, eaten a lot of quinoa, and met some inspiring women (and men) who’ve shared their heart for health. Learning from books is helpful, but there’s nothing like the high I get from hearing someone’s personal health story. I can’t help feeling like we can change the world when I meet someone who faced a challenge, struggled, and transformed their life and now they’re using what they learned to help others do the same.
Here’s one of the women who inspired and educated me with her personal journey to wellness. I hope she’ll inspire you too!
Amie – The Healthy Apple - Her personal story of overcoming 6 years of chronic pain through clean eating, combined with her insane culinary skills, will send you straight into the kitchen to try your hand at her flavorful and nourishing recipes.
I know one of my biggest challenges is finding time to squeeze in a workout. I hate taking my kids to the gym with me during cold and flu season because they always seem to pick up the funk. My boys are super early risers so getting up before them to workout just isn’t an option. What work for me is finding fun, effective workouts I can do in 30 minutes or less at home. Suzanne Bowen Fitness is one of my favorite resources. And now, so is Sarah Dussault.
Sarah - SarahFit.com - Sarah’s fitness videos have been viewed on YouTube more than 80 million times! She has a great personality so you feel like you’re working out with a friend. Check her out and get inspired to get moving.
Are you guys app addicts, like me? Do you like to take pictures of your food? Have you tried to keep a food journal and failed? I have to answer yes to all of these. If you answered yes to one or all I think you’ll like this cool new app I learned about at FitBloggin, dietSNAPS. Food journals are an effective way to find the foods that work best for your body and lifestyle. I use them with my health coaching clients all the time and they are alway amazed at what they learn when they track what they eat and how they feel before and after. But keep track can be challenge. Especially if you’re on the go a lot. dietSNAP gives you the ability to snap a photo of your food, track food allergies and other food related symptoms like IBS, take notes on how you’re feeling, track your fitness routine and even monitor supplements and medications. The only downside. It’s currently only available for the iPhone. If you have one, this app is worth a try. It’s $1.99.

That’s it for day 2. Tomorrow is the big 5K and then I head home to see these handsome faces I’m missing so much!
