BUENOS DIAS VATOS BONITOS!
'Sup over there?
...Today was a dreamy one for the Dubes. A dreamy one for many reasons, some of which include the following...
1). I did Pilates and I did it well
Boom. Check out my swan dive.
2). I sweat my balls off in hot yoga (no photo).
3). It's a STUNNER day here in tha NYC.
I've already walked 7,113 steps (but who's counting?) while listening to some new ghetto-ass music that lights me up inside. It's fabulous.
4). I showered, blow-dried and...are you ready?!...Straightened my hair! #win
5). I get to teach my most favorite class tonight.
It's gonna be a BIG, BAD PARTY in Advanced mat class. HOLLER. You should come if you know what the fuck you're doing. Otherwise, please refrain.
6). I am slow-cooking 4.5 pounds of pork shoulder.
Hell to the yes.
7. I am talking to all of your EYEBALLS = Happiness.
K. Let's talk business. HIT IT.
My Absolute Number One Tip To Good Health is....
To get happy. I mean really happy on the inside.
Love yourself. Love what you do. Love the people you spend time with.
This probably sounds super cliché and cheesy, but it is the damn truth. In health coaching and even in teaching Pilates, I find that most people attempt to fix their problems backwards. They start on the outside, instead of the inside. For example, they believe that if they exercise and "eat well,"(which is usually an unhealthy obsession) they'll lose weight, be more attractive and then all of life's problems will magically disappear and they'll be happier. This is totally true to an extent, but on the flip side, I've seen people who, on the outside, seem to have their shit together, but on the inside are extremely unhappy.
Bottom line, people implement superficial change, because it's easier. It takes big balls to face truth, especially truth about oneself. It is often painful and always uncomfortable. But we sorta HAVE to go there if we really want to make good, long-lasting change.
How we feel about ourselves is the root of our happiness and our health.
It is not about other people. It never is. It is only ever about ourselves. Mark my words. The choices we make and the actions we take all reflect this.
So, you want to get healthy? GET HAPPY. Start on the inside, not on the outside.
BOSS. I'm out.
