Wisdom Wednesday: Preventable Problems

Leave a comment

February 20, 2013 by Darlene McC

Recycling an old post from last summer for this week’s WW.  Things are a little hectic for trainers this time of year & there are a lot of balls up in the air.

Do you know the long term affects of what you put in your body every day?

Do you know the long term affects of what you put in your body every day?

I’ve just begun studying for Precision Nutrition, a certification for trainers to become Sports Nutrition coaches.  The early chapters talk about the basics of how your cells are structured, down to how the membranes of the cells themselves are affected by how & what you eat.  Thinking about the body on this level drives home how little we know about the chemicals we put in our bodies every day and the way they interact with us on the most fundamental level.

Basically: I put myself through all this discomfort and chemical intervention…

…because exercise, a good diet, and regular chiropractic care are just too much trouble.

(I’ll leave the last part about the chiro up to your discretion   They don’t impress me; but I’ve heard good things from others.)

I hope you draw from this the idea that, instead of spending thousands over your lifetime on “living through chemistry” you could invest a few hundred dollars a month on good quality food and some appropriate running footwear (or a gym.  or a trainer.)  Seems a worthwhile investment to me.

Happy Wednesday.

Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. .

But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! 🤦‍♀️ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1️⃣ We're all human (I think👽) 2️⃣ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3️⃣ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes

Grad school update! 🤓 I haven't been posting often because I've been LEARNING! It's been wonderful so far, but it's also like trying to jam a watermelon into a teacup. 🍉🍵 😳 My brain is so full I'm worried it will pop. What are your go-to strategies when your mind is fizzling but you still have things to accomplish? 👇 . . #penn #pennmapp #levelup #gradstudent #gradschool #mapp15 #mappster
