Putting the Soul in Your Workout 

It was towards the end of my time in L.A. that I had gotten lost in the Hollywood bullshit. I was caught up in a superficial lifestyle and desperately trying to break free, but change is difficult, especially when you live a comfortable life. I was a producer working on movie trailers and TV campaigns for many different studios, but it was running my life and slowly started to kill my soul. For someone whose outlet was working out and prided themselves on eating well balance meals, the hours I was working and the stress level slowly took that away from me. People in the entertainment industry LOVE to drink for any reason they can think of and when you work 12-14 hour days, ordering into the office is normal. I could sit here and blame the industry or I can blame myself for letting it change me… for letting me undo all of the hard work I had achieved for my body. Part of the blame, is my own.

Pick Up Some Weights 

Seriously ladies… learn to love lifting. Your body doesn’t produce testosterone so you won’t bulk. Weights are what’s going to give you that tight, muscle tone that you don’t achieve from cardio. You don’t have to go crazy and start taking supplements. A balanced diet with enough protein in each meal will allow you to build muscle. If you don’t have a gym membership, you can buy a few different sized weights and do lifting at home. A rep should feel like work, but you should never strain. Use a weight that you’re comfortable with and when it starts to feel easy, up the weight by 5-10lbs.

Little Changes Yield BIG Results 

When I first moved to Hollywood, CA and was finally ready and focused on my weightloss, I didn’t know where to start. I was very out of shape. Running was out of the question, I got winded going up and down stairs, and I had a hard time doing bodyweight exercises. So what to do when you feel like the cards are stacked against you? Walk! Get your body used to movement.

Finding a Workout You Love 

Let’s face it, finding a workout you love to do and sticking with it is hard. I urge everyone to start slow and do something comfortable. If you love dancing, there are many dance workouts you can do either at home or in a gym. Also, don’t let one bad workout keep you from continuing your health and wellness journey. What do Imean? Ok, you tried running and hated it. Don’t stop your journey–just pick
something else to try. I personally love to switch things up and find many different types or workouts enjoyable. Here are a list of workouts I love and why! If anything strikes your fancy, TRY IT. It never hurts to try.

Find Your Stride 

I don’t think there is anyone that’s in the middle when it comes to running. You either love it or hate it. I was one of those ones that hated it. Sure, there are some naturally great runners, but I think most people have to work for it. Running the mile in high school was always the worst day of my life. I wasn’t fast, I couldn’t breathe and I was always in pain afterwards. I was the student that got an “A” for effort and an “F” for time. I didn’t understand how people could breathe through the running. How are you that fast? Don’t you feel like dying? Am I that out of shape? Granted, I was always a little chubby growing up and didn’t play sports, but I was in the Marching Band; played piccolo. Clearly, I had good lung capacity.
