Morning run at Haggarty Hill.The hills around Simi Valley - can you see the running group off to the right? This is Shells. Since we began our boot camp in 2006 we have helped thousands of people.

Most arrive because they have never been able to stick to a healthy regiment that included making healthy food choices and daily exercise.

Unless you are a programmed BORG, someone that has fought and beaten a major health-related disease (they are the most motivated) OR someone with foresight THIS IS THE NORM.

That last point about foresight is the clincher.  

That can keep you motivated on a path, YOUR PATH, to a lifestyle of quality.

I cannot imagine anyone hoping to be confined to a wheelchair, unable to dress or undress themselves or hug a friend or family member. 

If you were in an accident, that is a different story.

MichelleF - Long Canyon Trail Running  (1) copyMichelleF scoots along Long CanyonGetting outside makes a happy mom...which in turn makes a happy family! I’m talking about the people that day after day put their health on the bottom of the stack of priorities.  I did it myself so I know what I’m talking about.

I just read an article pointing out the OBVIOUS. Very interesting, check it out.  Doctor’s are not prescribing “exercise more” to combat health problems.  They’re definitely prescribing medications though.  Lots of excuses and reasons for it.  

If you have ever stuck to a workout program - especially one that it outside - for a good amount of time you KNOW how good it feels.

I was born in the late 60’s.  My childhood was spent mostly outside in the streets, alleys and parks playing.  Barefoot most of the time as well.   It really feels FANTASTIC to be unconfined in your movement (why I think outdoor exercise is the greatest, I’ve done both and have an educated opinion).

BUT what if that idea doesn’t ignite your internal fire?

That’s where you should look around and see what or who is influencing you.

If you watch much television chances are you are being heavily influenced by perfect physique and the latest fad diets, pills, drinks and instant meals.

If you are around an active group, chances are you are just as active.

If you are sitting in an unhappy place physically and you want to do something about changing it to a more permanent happy health-wise, look around at who is the Captain of your ship in the area of exercise and nutrition.

 

Kitchen My small kitchen.Your kitchen is the greatest room in the house. Next to your bed (where you need to get plenty of sleep) your kitchen can help you be happier and healthier! The Kitchen - Your Kitchen

Every single house has a kitchen.  Some small and some enormous.  

Some have every possible piece of equipment you’d ever need to make ANY food item.  There are some that have the basics to throw together about 10 different meals.

Do you have a “pantry” with canned, dry and preserved foods?

What about eating?  Do you spend a lot of time dining out?  Have you looked around the place to get a feel for the “health” of other patrons? 

These points make a difference in your health.

How many meals are you in control of 100%?

Review just a week and be honest with yourself.

If you have a kitchen you can spend more time in it creating (not cooking) meals that are packed with good and healthy ingredients.

It’s no secret that our program pushes for unprocessed foods as a priority.   It is no secret that the fad diets, super weight loss pills and powders, unsustainable foods all fall into one category: unhealthy.

Randy and Ryan at Kids Boot Camp.Give your kids a variety of all of the many unprocessed foods that you find in your grocery. Unprocessed REAL FOOD is what has the energy your body needs.  The nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids...you name it.

 

I’m not saying you have to be a vegan (I am trying to be one because it just feels awesome).  

I’m suggesting you wake up and realize that EATING IS FUN and if you were to EAT HEALTHY it is not only FUN but good for you.

It does take more work to eat from your home but so what!  You are worth it.

Added Bonus

You are influencing the younger people around you.   

The best you can do is to lead by example.

I don’t know who originally said this but it sure is true, “Be the person you want your children to be.”
