Business Card Arrival

I am a bit behind, because I have been trying to be more on top of posting through Instagram and Facebook.

My Business Cards have arrived! I have 3 different focuses that make up KellyKinetics; Fitness, Wellness and Belly dance.  Later I will provide more details on what each business focus offers.

See you again soon!

Self Awareness = Self Control

How aware are you of whether you are full at a meal or not?

How aware are you of whether you really want that dessert, need that dessert, crave that dessert or just need something to do?

Having been in the fitness industry acting as a role model for other people and having been through my own transformation in the past I have a very good handle on this now.

One of the most interesting things to me was my latest vacation to Cuba for the New Year.

In the past I would go to all inclusive resorts and eat more than one plate of food at every meal and go crazy on dessert….If you think about it, All inclusive is kind of like going to an all you can eat buffet …..except now, its all the alcohol you can drink, all the food you can eat. One can take it to the extreme…haha.

This time around, I think because i was in a much more relaxed state (I only used my phone to text maybe 2 days out of 8, and the rest of the time I took pictures), I slowed everything down.

I literally sauntered everywhere. I sat and didn’t rush my meals. I slowed down how often my fork touched my mouth. I slowed down to talk, I slowed down to say hello to the resident cats. Then when my plate was empty I drank my coffee/juice and waited. Sometimes I got up for a little extra, sometimes I didn’t. It was a choice made solely on if I was really still hungry or if I was satisfied or not. I didn’t just blindly get up to get another plate because its already paid for in my all inclusive.

Only 2 out of 7 nights I ate dessert. All the other days I didn’t really care to have anything. One of the desserts was at the a la carte meal, the other was a night when the desserts looked especially special. Otherwise I was able to look at them, by pass them and move on.

I think the main thing is, here at home, we are always going, sometimes on high speed. If your lifestyle is high speed, it would make it very hard to be self aware and demonstrate self control. Take some time to slow down even if its not a vacation. Take some “me” time and start to tune in and see what you can learn about yourself, and see if that helps you to make some lifestyle changes for the better.

I am very proud of everyone! They were all so dedicated and put some long hard hours of work to prepare for last weekend.

I don’t train bodybuilders myself, but am proud to actually be a part of the elite team of trainers at CoreFit. I train people in different disciplines and at CoreFit we train people from all walks of life. We train people from the teen-aged years up to people in the 80s!! Yes, that’s right…you are never too old to start making healthy improvements in your life. 🙂

I train for general weight-loss, muscle building and strengthening. Within my methods I have also provided rehab, and i teach people how to change their lifestyles so they improve their overall health.

Power Up Yoga Retreat!

I am excited to attend this retreat this coming Saturday! I attended one at the end of March and it was pretty amazing. I loved it so much that this time around when I saw Melissa Major looking for volunteers for the day in exchange for attending I jumped on that opportunity.

In the past, I would pass up so many opportunities because I was scared, insecure etc. Now I don’t care! Any opportunity is a positive life experience work taking!

If you live in Toronto, you should check it out and see if there is still some space!Power Up Poster

 

Frustration

Don’t you just love when you get involved in something that at first you do just for fun, then you decide you want to become more serious about it?  YES, me too!!

Don’t you just hate it when there are obstacles that make it harder to progress? YEAH, me too!!

I have been studying Muay Thai for about 2.5 years now. I have gone through periods of great growth, plateau periods, and periods where I start to decline due to injuries, being ill or bouts of depression.

I have just started coming out of a decline period…and its so frustrating that my work schedule doesn’t allow me to do any of my instructor’s evening classes. So, I am limited to one weekday and one weekend day. If I can at least stay consistent in those two classes for 1-2 months I know I will be able to grow in MT again. But I know that in April I am going away for one weekend. And I have also learned, that if I take one Saturday a month where I don’t do much of anything and just relax and do self-care, everything else becomes that much better.

I also really want to start learning Jujitsu, but it’s really hard to find a school that has the most convenient location and schedule together which matches with my work  availability.

All that fits my schedule now is boxing. This could be good to learn too, so I may have to go that route for now.

I guess it’s just a matter of being patient, and when a schedule change in my work life opens up, I immediately will jump on the chance to fit something in that I want.

A few months ago, I had a schedule change on a Thursday evening…but the change still wasn’t allowing for the class start time (6pm i think) for my instructor’s Thursday night Muay Thai class. That class started too early still. But I took the chance to bring back my Flamenco Dancing, because that class starts at 8pm;  allows me to still get there.

Oh well. As long as I get to do the things I love everything will get better. I should be grateful I can even take part in things that require me to use my body in different high intensity ways!!

WOOHOOO!!! 🙂
