Some of you may have been following my health page on Facebook. If so, you will know that I left Facebook a few months ago. I promised to carry on somewhere else, so here it is! For the rest of you, I hope you can find some good information in this page.
When life dumps on you, sometimes the only thing left that you can control is what you do with your body. Stress and depression go hand-in-hand with the sorts of awful events that can lead to unplanned retirement. They are real and have terrible physical effects on the body. Staying fit and eating right can help keep you healthy and sane. Finding the right program can bring much needed stress relief, happiness, and a sense of routine. (Routine can be boring in some circumstances, but when you are under a great deal of stress or living with depression, a good routine can be a lifesaver.)
I know people who have enough drive and self motivation to be able to put together a healthy fitness and eating plan on their own. I, however, am not one of those, and this page is here to help those of you who are like me. For the record, I am a Team Beachbody Coach. It doesn’t mean I am a fitness instructor or a nutritionist (nor does it mean that I will try to sell you something). What I am is somebody who has been down a difficult road of depression, stress, low self esteem and the health problems that can come with that. I finally found a solution that works for me through Team Beachbody. It is one of the best decisions I have made for myself in the last decade. I would love to share my experience with you in hopes that I can help someone else. You do not have to join Beachbody to be here on this page (although it’s a great place to get answers to any questions about the program). There are other programs that work well too. You just have to find the one that fits your style. I hate the gym so this works well for me. I love being able to work out in my own home. If you are more social, a gym membership might be better. The key is to stick with it, and realize that if it’s not making you feel better, it’s time to try something new. I will be sharing tips that anyone can use. See you soon!
