Do me (and yourself) a favor!
Take a sec and relax your shoulders and your jaw. Right now!
Then, draw in a nice slow breath … and feel those muscles relax even MORE.
Forget everything on your to-do list (for just a second).
What are you doing for YOU today?
A LOT of people put their fitness & health on the back burner this time of year.
“I’ll start again after the New Year,” they say.
And I’m not just talking about weight gain … it’s about how you feel in your body every day – mind, body, and spirit!
When you stick with your healthy habits (workouts, healthy diet, 7-8 hours of sleep a night, etc.), you just plain FEEL better.
You have fewer cravings … your immune system works better … you are in a better mood … your self-esteem goes up … and you enjoy life more!
And I can’t think of a better gift to yourself (and your loved ones!) for the holidays than that :-)
So schedule those workouts … and double down on healthy food choices. It really will make a huge difference for you starting TODAY.
I've put together a FREE Fitmas Challenge to have FUN and stay on track with your goals …. and just for joining us you can win some EPIC prizes in the process! Woohoo!
This challenge consists of 12 days of quick workouts that pack a punch and will get your heart rate up in less than 20 minutes!
The best part is … you don’t need any special equipment so you can do these even from anywhere. I'm hosting it in my Wellness With Colleen Facebook Group. If you aren't on there, it's not too late. Day 1 is today!
Remember: Don’t let the urgent get in the way of the important – because YOU and YOUR needs are important.
In cased you missed it. I'm giving away THREE 10-Day Total Mind and Body Detox programs (it was my birthday and I wanted to give YOU a gift). I'll be drawing three lucky people this Wednesday, Dec 14th. All you have to do to enter is tell me WHY you would enjoy hitting the "reset" button. I have a group starting this together January 9th. Comment to enter HERE.
If you are local I have two events this week. Would love to see you!
Yours in health,
It’s not just you — a study by Healthline found that when it comes to health and finances, not only do 44% of people think the holidays are “somewhat stressful”...
18% of them classified them as “very stressful”!
The good news?
You can conquer both areas – you just need a roadmap.
Thriving Through the Holidays Checklist
- Make your plans TODAY.
If you love last-minute shopping, leave a couple of small things undone, but get all the big things handled ASAP … and make packing or organizing lists if your holidays involve travel or entertaining.
- Make time for movement EVERY DAY, no excuses.
This will help you destress, sleep better, and boost your energy, metabolism, and immune system.
- Eat till you’re satisfied (not stuffed!).
Decide NOW that this will be your plan of action!
- But still enjoy the “worth it” favorite holiday treats.
- Make time for sleep.
A rested body & mind = better mood, less stress, and more vibrant health.
- Go outside for some fresh air and sunshine every day.
This is a proven stress-buster!
- Create a fallback plan.
I talked about this a few weeks ago but it’s worth bringing up again. Things will go sideways at some point. But when you have a plan, you won’t stress out when it happens.
When you boil your to-do lists down to the actions that really make a difference – and eliminate the things that don’t – it’s amazing how much you can accomplish...
WITHOUT the stress.
This is the same approach I use with my clients. We create a roadmap of the BEST actions that will propel them toward their goals.
Want to know how this approach can help YOU feel better, have more energy, and lose weight?
I have two openings for one-on-one personal training, and of course my proven 28-Day Program to jumpstart your wellness habits. For TODAY ONLY, in honor of Cyber Monday, I'm offering 20% off my 28-Day Total Body Transformation Program. Use code: itstimeforme and click HERE.
Here's what one raving fan has to say about the program:
"When I first heard about Colleen's program, I thought I didn't have "time" for another program. I read more about it and realized it was different and easier than most programs that are out there. I changed some major bad habits in just 3 days into the program that I thought for sure I wouldn't be able to do. I love the new habits I've created and still going strong; they are really lifelong changes. Who knew! Colleen did!"-Melissa G.
Here’s to less stress and more of what really matters!
