Using ‘Pinspiration’ to Meet your Weight Loss Goals

15 Mar

Have you heard of …

   ?

It’s one of the newest and hippest websites working its way up the popularity ranks. It has a social networking component to it like Facebook or Twitter, but ultimately, you create your own Pinboards. But what is a pinboard, you ask?
 
Remember the days when you spent hours with glue, scissors, and a stack of magazines, making collages? You made collages for school projects, to inspire yourself, or to display your love of Leonardo DiCaprio (okay, maybe that was the tween version of me, circa 1997). 
 
A pinboard is kind of like that, except there’s no mess or assembly required, since it’s done virtually. And in lieu of old magazines you have the whole web to use at your disposal. Sweet, right?
 
You can design a Pinboard about anything and name it yourself. People make pinboards about anything that interests them: recipes, weddings, party planning, photography. Sky’s the limit.  
 
You can even use pinboards to help you meet your health goals. 
 
It has been proven that setting concrete goals and visualizing them can help you to meet them. Search “healthy meals” or “exercise” in Pinterest, and you’re instantly flooded with images of toned bodies, tantalizing and healthy recipes, and suggestions for exercises to get the body that you’ve always wanted. It’s instant inspiration. 
 
Pinboards look something like this:
 
If you haven’t yet, meander over to Pinterest and start pinboard to help you meet your health and wellness goals! Transform the swirling ideas of what you want in your head into concrete, tangible, and inspiring pinboards.

Imagine yourself living a healthy life…

1 Mar

What do you want for your life? 

Have you achieved all of the goals that you once set for yourself? Have you become the person that you’ve always wanted to be on a physical, emotional, and mental level? Most of all, are you happy?

These are all questions that people probably don’t ask and you and you certainly don’t ask yourself. Or maybe you may ask yourself these questions everyday, wondering why you are lacking something in your life. If you’re at either of those extremes (or somewhere in the middle), I want to help you get where you want to go. We all deserve health and we all deserve to be happy.

Maybe your health is bringing you down. If so, you probably know most of all that if you don’t have your health, it’s hard to have much else. Health is all encompassing and if it’s in jeopardy, it has the power to control your life instead of you.  Maybe your health is in danger, but you don’t know it yet. Maybe you’re just trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I hope to inspire and motivate both others and myself through this blog. We all need to share and support one another. We all need to visualize what we want and then communicate it to both ourselves and to others. Let’s talk. We’re all in this together!

I hope to share health articles, links, videos, pictures, and insight to help you along the way. Feel free to contact me at healthcoachmeg@gmail.com

In health,
