Welcome to 2020! - AND a new decade!
It's such an exciting time and an exciting opportunity. As I was reviewing my content I knew I REALLY wanted my first podcast for 2020 to pack a punch and deliver some key insights for living the abundant life we aspire to here on the Blueprint.
When I re-listened to the interview - I knew this was it.
Sarah is such a calm and unassuming personality but she drops some real gold nuggets in this interview and I can't wait to share it.
In this podcast we're going to unpack what THREE key principles Sarah has used to shape her own happy, healthy laptop lifestyle as a mother of 2 (soon to be 3) children AND how she uses these same 3 principles to guide her clients from all across Australia to success in their health and fitness goals.
Here's the highlights:
[10:42] Work on yourself first. As a mum we can feel guilty doing things for ourselves. I have these children and I needed to attend to them before myself. Through self development and personal growth that I realise that I needed to work on myself first to be the best mum that I can be and to be that role model in health and and wellness in general.
[11:05] Self care. Creating that lifestyle that works, giving yourself the best to yourself and to your kids starts with self care.
[11:59] Fitness. I think it should be something that everyone needs to do. And no matter what that looks - it's different for everyone and what works for you.
[12:12] Good nutrition. What you should be passionate about depends on the person. To some people who wants to lose weigh focusing on macros and calories while others want to improve their health. All comes down to their values and what they want to achieve ultimately.
[12:38] Lifestyle change. The biggest thing and also something most people struggle with because everyone wants that quick fix. They want to lose weight they may go for these alternatives e.g. shakes, pills, the "you don't need exercise, you don't need to change your diet" is so appealing to people but it isn't sustainable. We need to change our lifestyle if we want something to work for us long-term.
[14:14] Mindset. People need to work on their mindset to work on what they would like to achieve.
[15:01] Workout on their own schedule. Depends on what suits them. In Thrive, there's an app that tracks measurement, water intake, walking, cardio, indoor exercises... There are lots of options.
[16:00] Progress tracking. If you want to see change, you need to track your progress. Measuring your journey is essential otherwise you just keep on going and don't know how you are going.
[16:35] Things take time. Usually it takes 6 months to figure out what works and what doesn't.
[16:55] Coaching. Each week find someone to check in with. Find a professional to work with.
[18:05] Celebrate your wins. We don't always see the truth - we have a different view of reality - so checking in allows you to stay in touch with what's going on - and when you have a win - celebrate.
Are you happy with everything that's going on in your world?
If not, why don't you do something about it.
