I was interviewed for a segment on Trainer’s Talk at the Digital Water Cooler.
I love doing podcasts and interviews. As much as I love to write, I have to admit that there are benefits to speaking about how I view health and fitness.
Tom Huffman of Tom Huffman’s Calisthenics Academy and I spent some time discussing how the key to a healthy life is to incorporate balance and self-awareness into a healthy-living program.
He asked me some fantastic questions, and I was happy to talk about my own weight loss program, and how I had to change my perspective about well-being in general in order to not only succeed with losing weight, but in keeping it off.
I know time can be short for many of you, so perhaps listening to a podcast isn’t a priority when there are important things to get done.
However, if you decide to let it run in the background while you’re cooking dinner or going about some of your other tasks, I think you’ll find the content enlightening.
The topics discussed had to do with things like:
- Why our weight problems only seem to magnify – even with the abundance of so many diet and exercise programs on the market.
- My own weight issues and how I was able to change my body and habits through self-awareness and a shift in perspective.
- The difference between the illusion of health and fitness – and simply being healthy and well.
- How to make healthy living a lifestyle that is doable, realistic and enjoyable as opposed to being a chore.
I have been in the health and fitness industry for several years. In that time, I’ve made a few observations that have caused me to question why so many of us continue to struggle with our weight.
And if you had a chance to read them, then you know that I really opened up and let you into my world.
When it comes to well-being, self-awareness plays a pivotal role.
Know thyself – and you’ll know the cause of the effects you wish to change.
These are the things Tom and I talked about in my interview, and I think you’ll get a better understanding of how this whole wellness/ weight loss/ healthy living thing can be a far more realistic and pleasant experience than the yo-yo situation that so many of us continue to struggle with.
So on that note, I hope you enjoy the podcast.
Everyone could use some inspiration from time to time, and I think this conversation will provide just that.
But before I go, I have one question to ask (ok, maybe more like two)…and I’d love to get your answer(s) on this.
What do you think are the most challenging aspects of a weight loss/ healthy living program? And what, if anything would keep YOU involved and consistent when it comes to your own well-being?
Let me know in the comments section.
