What is quality?

OK so I have posted some solid info on Metabolic Typing.  I personally decide each day to eat for my Metabolic Type, Protein Type.  However when I was first introduced to Metabolic Typing I was well let’s say “freaked out”  by what I was reading.  Can you imagine reading that fat, meat would be OK and even healthy!  It was so opposite to what we hear in the media, or how I was trained up to that point.  So at that time I put the info aside and continued on the way Society suggests we eat.

Fast forward a few years, Digestive problems began, I took HLC 1. revisited the Metabolic Typing, started eating for my Protein Type and within 2 days my digestion began to improve!  Really quite remarkable.  And to this day 4 years later when I stick to the Metabolic Typing program I feel great.

One of the other things I do for myself is take supplements!  I eat organic or local with both my meat and vegetable/fruits.  For me it is simply a matter of being sure I am getting all my nutrition daily.  My choice for supplements is Symmetry Direct .  I have been using Symmetry’s products for over 16 years.  They are very high quality, I get them delivered to my home each and every month.  I actually like them so much that I sell them to clients, family, friends and develop a global business with them.

Here is a quick video explaining the quality of Symmetry’s products:

Metabolic Typing, Part 2

Metabolic Typing is a powerful diet that helps clients customize their diets to be free of food cravings, reach ideal weight, have high energy and prevent disease.

I say customize their diets because we as humans are all different.  We may have similar characteristics as a type within the Metabolic Typing Diet however we will work to customize what is the best for you.

Seeing the Athlete and Champion

Vision Quest was started in 2001.  It was started because  of my passion for helping others live with the change that comes with wellness  and fitness in their life.  As I began the company I found that I naturally specialized in working with women and young people.   The women I have worked with range from an Olympic athlete, an international athlete to many middle age women who want to participate in competitive sports at a local level and to be healthier, to senior women that want to be as healthy,  active and independent as possible in their life.  Mostly the young people I have worked with wanted to reduce their weight and feel good about them self.  Both groups of individuals are very exciting for me to work with. 

I wanted my logo to represent my feelings about what we do at Vision Quest Wellness.  We are Change Makers.  Vision Quest is a Personal Training and Holistic Lifestyle Coaching company that works with people, who are truly inspired to reduce weight, get into shape, be healthy/vibrant and just don’t know where or how  to start.  We provide coaching, teaching and training for clients who are looking for real change.  Becoming an athlete and champion for their life whether they start out as an athlete or not.  Each human I believe has an athlete and champion in them . 

I see all of my clients as athletes and champions reaching for the stars, yet most of my clients did not see it.  Most of my clients did not see how awesome they are.    I see them standing on the championship  podium as they go beyond their potential and never say no.   My clients inspire me to move them beyond what they think is possible for them. I see athletes all the time raise their arms in victory and this is what I wanted to share with clients new and old. 

My logo is not necessarily a feminine looking logo yet I wanted women and youth to know that it is OK and a must  to raise their arms and celebrate being a champion/athlete in today’s world. 

Vision Quest Wellness.  We are Change Makers helping women and youth to become the athlete and champion in their life.  We do this through Life Coaching, Fitness Coaching/training, Nutrition/Holistic Coaching, Supplement Coaching, and Stress Management Coaching.

Are you living your plan?

Yesterday I wrote about having a plan.  In yesterday’s post I wrote about my planning a Weight Loss Program that I am putting together.

I just got back from a long bike ride around my area.  It is an absolutely wonderful morning with the sun shining, very little humidity and not a cloud in the sky.

I really enjoy getting on my bike and going for a ride.  Doing this is a part of my plan.  My plan to live a healthy, active life.  Exercise for me is a daily thing.  Whether it be living weights, doing body weight exercise, getting on my bike for a ride, boxing, yoga or reffing I do something 6 days a week.  I take 1 day to rest which is also a part of my plan.  Getting balance is very important and a challenge. 

To get out of doors and enjoy the beauty of the neighborhood.  Whether it is a short ride or a long one it is wonderful to be outside, seeing all the beautiful gardens, homes and even the people out on the street for their daily walks is a very enjoyable way for me to get exercise.  Yet it hasn’t always been this way.  There was a time when I didn’t do any kind of exercise, was overweight, tired,  sick and not feeling so good. 

Yet today it got me to thinking about planning life.  It seems most of us just let life plan us.  When I hear most  of my friends and colleagues speak about their lives it is from the standpoint of working at their jobs and then at some point in the future retiring and doing what it is they really enjoy. 

It got me thinking about planning and how important it is yet so little is done about it.  When it comes to health, weight reduction in today’s world it is even more important to plan.  Now for some when I discuss planning  it becomes this heavy thing that we are not supposed to discuss.  For some it is just too much, yet when I think about planning my life and how I want to live it I find it rather exciting.  I think about what I want and not what I don’t want.  I have been told that the mind doesn’t understand the concept of don’t want and so it messes with the plans.  For example if someone were to say “I don’t want to smoke”  the mind would understand “I want to smoke” so the reason to plan your wants.

Today it got me to wonder if so many people today are challenged with health and weight problems because they don’t plan.  Are we so stressed out as a society that we don’t take the time to think about life and what we want from it?  I don’t believe anyone wants to be overweight, suffering from low energy, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and any of the other many illnesses that people suffer from today.  Yet it is happening. 

So how do we turn this around?  How do we begin to plan our lives so we can feel better, look better, and have more energy and more fun in life?  Is the first step to ask ourselves “What do I want?”  Is that a scary question?  Is that the reason we don’t do it?  What if the answer is very different from the life we are now living?  What do we do then?  Then we start. 

It all starts with a decision.  So are you ready to ask the question?  What  do you want from your life?

My Weight Loss Program will be addressing the 6 Pillars for Wellness and how they benefit getting what you want in life.  We will work 1 pillar at a time to develop the Wants in Your life so change will happen and you will begin to put Your plan together while on the road to Wellness and Weight Loss.

Planning

I am in the process of  putting together a Weight Loss program.  Actually I have worked with clients for a number of years now helping them to reduce their weight, feel better and learn how to train (exercise) in a way that is enjoyable, beneficial while rewarding to my clients in their life.  Although many people tell me they don’t like exercise (training is the way that I think of it) I believe that we all have an athlete inside us that is just waiting to get out and begin to move.  For some of us moving is simply getting committed to going out for a brisk walk many days of the week and for others it is getting busy learning how to train in many different disciplines like, body weight, dumbbells, cables, plyometrics, boxing or whatever mode they are looking for. 

So my program is being put together from all the work I have done in the past with future clients in mind.  As I begin this process I had a question about planning.  Have you ever planned to reduce your weight?  Have you ever planned to be healthier?  Have you ever planned to do both at the same time? 

What’s your Wellness & Weight Reduction Plan? 

Do you plan by keeping it simple?  It is Simple to focus on Simple things isn’t it? 

What stops you from planning?  FEAR!

  • FEAR stands for – Forever Expecting Awful Results

Is there MAGIC in your plan?

  • MAGIC stands for – My Attitude Generates Incredible Change

I feel that when a plan isn’t put into place nothing gets done?  When it comes to training, food intake,  it must be thought about and planned each day beginning the night before?  What do you feel about this?

 WHEN ONE DOESN’T PLAN WILL ALWAYS MAKE BAD FOOD/DRINK CHOICES, EMPTY CALORIES, TOO MANY CALORIES

I have heard and read many, many time that it normally takes 5 or 6 unsuccessful attempts at goal setting to make them happen in a positive way.  Have you had any experience with this?

Did you know that:

  •  Less than 20% of people actually write their goals down
  •  Of the 20% that do write down goals, only 20% regularly review them and this is the important aspect of planning or goal setting. 

Let me know what you feel on planning and don’t forget to sign up for my Wellness and Weight Loss Free program now

Eating Organic Considered Just Food 50 Years Ago

I eat organic, I have mentioned that in prior posts. Yet it seems to me that when I was much, much younger food was just food. Good food. It was grown in the garden, there were no chemicals poured all over the fields. Seed went into the ground and with sun, water and weeding good crops came out. We ate them. Food was our medicine.
So what has happened? Why do we now have a new food catagory called Organic?
How did the growing of our food become such a manipulated business? Big Agribusiness owning the food seed and controling what we eat and the only way to get around this is maybe we can grow our own?
I just might be time for each of us to begin our own Personal Wellness Revolution and start paying attention to what we eat, drink, think about our food and what it is doing to our health. Just a thought?
