10 Years!

I have been a Certified Fitness Trainer for 10 years.  In this time, I have seen many people succeed in achieving their goals and fitness journey.  Unfortunately, I have seen those who have walked away from their fitness goals as well.  

As bariatric (weight loss) surgery has become popular and more affordable, there are those who have chosen to go this route as part of their journey.  The number one reason people choose surgery is because they don't believe they have the willpower and dedication to do it on their own; when in reality, it requires a greater amount of willpower and dedication.  It is a complete lifestyle change.  Not only does it affect daily diet, it causes the body to make drastic changes.  Hair loss, malabsorption, loose and saggy skin, loss of proteins, reduced portions, dry skin, protruding teeth and many other side effects occur with weight loss surgery.

When I began training, I would take it very personal if a client didn't achieve their goals.  It took me some time to realize that I can't do the work for you.  I provide the knowledge and the tools, but the individual must put in the work.

As in everything we do, we must do it for ourselves!  Life expectancy is greatly increased with a healthy lifestyle.  

It is my pleasure to help those in need.  It is even more pleasurable when I watch my clients succeed.

Everyone has the opportunity to feel better and look better.  But, it is up to the individual to make it happen.

To all of those who have trusted me in helping with their fitness goals, I thank you all!  

It has been an amazing journey, and I don't plan on quitting anytime soon!

Be safe, be healthy, be fit, and have FUN!

Depression & Anxiety: It's Effect On Relationships and Overall Well-being

Posted on June 26, 2018 at 1:50 PM
Depression and anxiety play a major role in how we feel about ourselves and others.  But, it doesn't have to control your life.

When depression and anxiety kick in, your desire to do even the smallest things becomes a major issue.  We tend to fall back on work, our fitness goals, our diet and exercise but most importantly it plays havoc on personal relationships.

Both conditions can be so severe that medication is required which can also have side-effects.  The #1 issue with both of these conditions is; you fail yourself first!

Others will not know what is going on unless you tell them, which is not going to happen most of the time. When we feel down, depressed, or anxious; we tend to withdraw.  We avoid leaving our homes or other places of comfort.  Your daily routine changes drastically.  We cry, we laugh, we sleep and we don't take care of ourselves.

I have found that struggling with PTSD; which causes depression and anxiety; the best thing to do is change your surroundings.  No, I'm not talking about moving from your bed to your couch; I am talking about getting up and completely moving away from where you are at that moment.  Go outside; take a walk; go shopping; go for a bicycle ride; go to the gym - even invite a friend out to lunch.  Remove yourself from the place where you are depressed or anxious at that moment. 

Oftentimes, writing in a journal and actually seeing the issues in your own writing will help you to better understand what you are dealing with at that moment.  Write a letter to yourself; the person you once were; or your future self.  The hardest thing to do is discuss what is bothering you with another person, not because we don't trust the person; but because on some level we feel week; or that others may judge us for what we are dealing with.  Remember:  it is a reality for you and does not have to be understood by anyone else.  A good friend, family member, or co-worker will not try to offer advice on how to change anything; but to be there for you unconditionally.

Finally how it can destroy your personal relationships.  Most importantly your spouse or significant other.

A relationship requires 100% from both involved.  Divorce is 50-50!  Communication and respect for each other is critical.  You don't have to express specific details pertaining to what you are dealing with, but you must let them know that you are in a form of crisis at that moment.  Your spouse or significant other can then make sure you are ok; to check on you occasionally; to ask if you need anything; and to be a shoulder when you need it.

The cause of your depression and anxiety is not always the biggest concern.  The concern is that you are taking care of yourself!  Just as you are there for others, allow them to be there for you.  Trust those who love you.  Express your concerns to them.  Communicate with them.  The love you have for each other will remain strong when you express yourself freely.

My mom (that wise woman; who never got enough credit); told me; mijo, whatever happens in your relationship never go to bed mad!  I never really understood what that meant.  I recently realized what that truly means.  In a relationship, many things cause frustration, many things aren't understood, many things feel like tearing the relationship apart.  But, how you react to those things is what proves your love for each other.  If you can say you are sorry, and truly mean it.  If you can embrace after an argument.  If you can say "I love you unconditionally", every night before you go to bed.  That is when you will know the depth of your spouse or significant other.

Depression and anxiety are no joke!  Express yourself.  Take care of yourself.  Love yourself!

Depression and anxiety are really frightening emotions to have. The amount of stress that we accumulate from being depressed and anxious is both physically and mentally tiring. It can can a lot of damage to our health. That is why, we should always talk about our feelings. There are a lot of things that may cause such emotions for us, however, we can always loosen up the weight in our chest by talking to people. We should really spend some time with our loved ones during these times.

Depression and anxiety are some serious mental illness that everyone of us should be aware of. There are times that someone we know may be showing some smiles on their faces and continues to give off that happy vibe. But when he already reaches home where no one is around him, he will take off the mask that he has been wearing and there you will see a person who does not know the purpose of his life. There are a lot of people like this. And the only thing that we can do is to always be there for them and be a little kinder to everyone every day.

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
