I believe when it comes to eating right and exercising, most of us know what to do, or can access good information to learn. The key is to become aware and overcome what holds us back from DOING what we know.
I believe by implementing simple, gradual, sustainable improvements in the way we think, the way we eat and the way we move, we can make lasting changes towards our overall health and in turn inspire others to do the same.

Hi Kelly. As you move towards healthy changes, know that your past does not dictate your future or what you are capable of. You really CAN do this. Stay connected with likeminded others and keep things simple. Also, remind yourself often of reasons you are on this path (to improved health) beyond the physical aspects.
Every 4 to 6 weeks. As long as you are focused on the WORK at hand, the results will come. Often times the scale becomes more of a focus than the work and this can affect our results in a negative way.
Yes! Absolutely, I believe this to be true. Of course this is a very personal opinion based on my direct experience. Consistent exercise paired with good nutrition was what helped me overcome depression and thank goodness I continue my prescription, as it has been my preventative medicine too!
Wonderful example of how working towards our health and weight loss goals can be simple and fun. Just watching this video makes me feel good from the inside out. Absolutely we can lose weight by dancing.
That's fantastic Jill!!! So happy you have power back and really cool to see how you are working through your thoughts gaining clarity on how much impact the way we think can have on how we move forward sometimes. Keep up the awesome work! Oh, and as for your questions...although I have, and do on occasion...I don't regularly workout with kettlebells.
Hi Penny, We have our power back. Yeah! I was on a plateau and thought for sure I would gain weight this week but actually lost a pound. I think throwing my system off a little might have helped. I tend to get paranoid when I start to lose weight and really reduce my calories afraid that I will gain weight therefore putting myself under stress which does not help out my body in any way. So I was pretty happy with the one pound loss. Now back getting back into the groove of things. Do you workout with a kettlebell at all?
Good for doing what you can without power!!! Hope you don't have to wait too much longer for power. The 5-25 is great..not sure which one you saw but there is one for lower and upper body and of course one for HIIT cardio. As for the nutrition, your best is all you can do and it sounds like you are doing it. Do you use whey protein that shakes well in a shaker cup? If so, maybe more of those will help keep the nutrition more on track?
Hi Penny, I am at a plateau with my weight and just saw the 5-25 workout and hope to do that since we have no power her for my exercise DVD's. I live in Northern Michigan and we got hit with a snow storm last Friday and we still have no power. Diet has been off with no refrigeration but I am still exercising. Can't wait to have my blender up and running for a fruit smoothie or some green drink.
Thanks Penny! :) It has been a really interesting journey! I will be looking at the specifics more towards Friday or this weekend. My next couple of days I have enough on my "plate", lol. But it sure can't hurt! Well, may be a little sore. ;)
