Super Body, Super Brain Life Coach Quote:

Why are we so critical with ourselves? According to the Dalai Lama is because the human being likes suffering. I would say that we are educated to never be completely satisfied and content. That needs to change. Look at yourself with awareness, with compassion and understanding. From there you can build a better you. Would you prefer a coach yelling at you or a coach who understands and tries to work with you. I want the second one and you?

Fitness for the Brain and the body:

Wednesday Posture Alignment training: Stand up tall, Pick up one book and place it on top of your head. Then walk forward, your arms are opened to the side and make sure you don’t drop the book when you walk. Walk ten steps forward, ten steps backwards. This is one set. Do it 4 times(Please make sure you are allowed to exercise)

Inspirational Quote:

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop” — Confucius

Wisdom around the Globe

One nail drives out another -German Proverb

Brain Fitness Quote:

Math Problem Solving: It is very important that we are constantly challenging our brain with mathematical and problem solving. Several areas of the brain are interacting together with math Problems Want to fire those neurons? Add math to your life!

Nutrition Quote:

Best source of energy? Carbohydrates. One of the worst foods for body fat? Carbohydrates. Make sure that if you have carbohydrates please exercise or move after, never sit down and watch TV. Our body stores all those carbs as body fat if they are unused.

Now I thought I was in model school.... most gals have been taught how to walk' and a book on the head is how our momma's taught us .I think we all have moments of stress and eat Carbs as a source of comfort...I doubt if that will ever change ..Challenging our brain comes naturally don't you think...the PC does it a lot of times for me ..I really like what that olde Confucius had to say...I think its true,keep moving ..

This may sound like a very basic and unintelligent question but how do we fit all this in our day?

I would like to be fit both physically and mentally but get lost in the process.  How can I make this more manageable for me?

I have mental health issues which cause me to avoid most things (and cause me to feel anxious about brain atrophy and neurodegenerative conditions, etc) but I enjoy physical activity (when I am motivated to do it and are not burnt out from over-training).  My goal for next year is to complete an off-road tri and several weeks later a marathon.

How does one move towards wellness?

Several quotes I like:
It is not the mountain that will stop you but the stone in your shoe.
Success is the sum total of small steps taken day in and day out.

that is a phenomenal question and i totally understand your concern. What would really help is if you wrote down every day you woke up your plan for the day: lets squeeze and exercise here, go for a walk, reading,any other activity and keep track. I can guarantee that you will feel powerful and if you need some motivation please ask me I am here to help! So have a weekly planner and a daily planner with all your activities and let me know how it goes!

"Failing to plan is planning to fail."
I'll definitely give your suggestions a go.  I feel that I should know this stuff.  I guess that when I fail I throw everything out and don't keep the aspects that do work.  I'll give your suggestions a go and let you know how I get on.  Thanks for the advice.

I will ask for additional motivational strategies if I need them -I think.

To answer your earlier question, both styles of coaching work for me.  Short-term, I probably respond best to the yelling.  I seem to be more motivated by negative.

Confucius seems more about participation than competition.  I guess that works best for exercise-adherence.

I'm rambling.  That's for the help.

Just a quick update.  I tried to organise my day so it had some structure.  It worked well for me until others changed their plans which significantly affected my own.  Meaning I had more responsibilities, less time, etc.

I think that somehow I need to learn to adapt to the constant changes others throw at me.

For me taking ownership was working but it's extremely hard in a dysfunctional family that has no respect for others personal boundaries.  My mother has severe head injuries, my father ?

I don't know how to make this work (and feel good) with the resources I have.  If I keep working at it in time I'll figure something out.
