  1. The (Fitness) Journey Never Ends – it just changes

    October 2, 2015 by Darlene McC

    I love my job. I love my team…. But 2 years of management has destroyed my body…2 years of devolving into who we think of as “our clients” (sedentary, bad diet, sore back, looooong stints at the computer, high stress) has taught me just as much as recovery from illness did. And the the old adage “you don’t use it you lose it” has been deeply driven home.

    Fitness isn’t a destination, just like life isn’t. It’s a process, and that’s what’s great about it. As our priorities shift and evolve, our bodies (and, in turn, minds) will as well. I’m at the crossroads where I’ve grown into my job enough that I can shift at least part of my priority back to myself and my wellness.

My accupuncurist told me last week I'm lucky... because I Labor Under Correct Knowledge. 😎 Life recently threw me a few curve balls on the road towards my goals. Because I set myself up with a solid foundation of good habits and business practices I'm still able to knock it all out of the park. #sportsmetaphors ⚾️ Our mind creates our habits, our habits build our patterns, our patterns shape our lives, which in turn build our mental state. It all ties together. 🀯 Learning to love yourself, meditating to learn your mind, and breathing through resistance are all steps on the road to your dreams. πŸ’– Where's your LUCK coming from? If you need some guidance in your self care or health I'm accepting fall coaching clients. There are also spots left for September's Motivated Month. Presale ends Saturday. πŸ’ͺ #Meditation #mindfulness #selflove #coach #coaching #coachmentality #selfcareisselflove #selfcare #selfawareness #lucky
Even coaches have coaches πŸ’ͺ 😁 Want to know one of the secrets of every trainer, yogi, coach, and entrepreneur you admire on Insta? They have a coach, mentor, or teacher who helps them. I work with someone whenever I get stuck. Coaches, trainers, acupuncturists. A team of people to help and guide me. πŸ‘‰ Knowing that you need help and guidance is part of growing. Being willing to accept it is an important lesson along every successful person's path. 😎 If you need guidance next Motivated Month starts on Monday (link in bio). Or I'm available for private coaching in fitness, meditation, self care, self development, sleep, and wellbeing. πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ #coach #coaching #fitpro #selfdevelopment #motivatedmonth #wellbeing #wellness #nutrition #selfdevelopment #selfcareexperiment #selfcareisselflove #selfcare #Meditation #mindfulness #selflove
What's your motto? πŸ€” The back of this shirt has our family motto "what if everything goes right?" Coined in a moment of fear, my Bonus Dad asked my mother "what if something goes wrong?".. our motto was her response. πŸ’– It's a reframe. A reminder that things can (and will) work out. A celebration of the precious time we have together. [And a hilarious typo, if you look close enough] 😁 Do you have a motto? Does your family? What is it, what's it mean to you, and how do you use it? πŸ’— Also: #meditate and #gooutside
Reminder: when you're going through something hard let your tribe be there for you. πŸ’— In April 2018, on my last day in Thailand, the 🐈 I'd had since college passed away. This, on top of a divorce and losing my home, felt like a cosmic kick in the teeth. The next morning something beautiful happened. My friends crafted a ceremony to help me say goodbye, even though I'd never get to. πŸ’– Maybe this seems like a silly example; but that moment of community has stayed with me through some very rough times. It also taught me how much it means to show up. πŸ₯° Who/how are you showing up for in your life? πŸ€— #tt #throwbackthursday #thailand #kohphagan #lunaalignmentyoga #friendship #support #love #hardtimes #beach #loss #tribe #wolfpack
