Where in our lives did we get it in our heads that healthy living is an “all or nothing” type deal? Where we’re either 100% healthy in our choices or 0% healthy in our choices? We all have that. We do precisely and perfectly well in sticking to our goals, then we slip up, maybe even just one meal, and then instead of accepting the slip up and continuing on our journey, we decide to turn it into a massive “Oh, Well” mud slide and let it all go. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve done that. That’s why gyms are so packed on Mondays and dead on Thursdays & Fridays! That’s why Weight Watchers is busting at the seams in January and struggling in November & December! It’s human nature. But why does it have to be that way? It doesn’t. CHALLENGE IT! The next time you slip up, make your next choice back on track. It’s ok to slip up once in a while. But a slip up is different from a binge and falling off the wagon completely. Avoid binges by not living in total deprivation along the way (have a bite of chocolate here & there, dang it! 🙂 ). Find non-food related ways to fight stress. Stay active and moving. Comment on here so that we can all uplift and encourage you. Remember it’s not a zero-sum-game. It’s a lifelong journey with ups & downs but all headed in the general direction of health. Make it a phenomenal weekend!
Prana is the Sanskrit word for "vital life." It is the notion of a vital, life-sustaining force of living beings, an energy believed to flow in our bodies through a network of subtle channels into every cell. To improve our vivacity, we can remove things that interrupt or block that flow of prana: self-imposed limitations on what we are capable of, walls of self-criticism that we let defeat us, and unhealthy bodies that we allow to rule all aspects of our lives. Prana Fitness is founded on the premise that fitness support should be free and accessible to everyone, and embodies the principles of restoring the natural flow of this prana energy through our bodies. We can learn to challenge the excuses and obstacles we create to become the happiest versions of ourselves: fit, confident, and overflowing with contagious energy. The Prana Fitness community is friendly, non-judging, unintimidating, and refreshing. We don't seek to fit molds; we seek to learn to love ourselves and take pride in our unique beauty and strengths.
