Coach LaDee Sunday Spotlight

As I was thinking about my life and where I’ve been and where I’m headed regarding my health,
happiness and life, I begin to think about where all our members have been and where they are headed
and thought I’d throw out some thoughts and insight.
Everything costs something. Sometimes our lives feel out of control and we feel like we are either on a
merry-go-round and can’t get off or we are spiraling down the drain with all the problems, frustrations,
emotions, things that are out of our control and then there’s our own personal hang-ups. So what do we
Well, with change, control isn’t always a bad thing. You can let yourself stay on this path of frustration or
you can take control, just one step at a time. There are so many things in life that we feel are out of our
control, but there is one thing you can control…YOU!
Our health needs to be a priority. We can never “catch up”. We overextend ourselves which causes us
to be overwhelmed which wreaks havoc on our body spiritually, physically, and emotionally. Healthy
living is not just physical health, but emotional health, relational health, and mental health.
What healthy habits do you need to change to reboot yourself?
Let’s try pick this apart and self-reflect:
1. Understand your personal triggers. These can include triggers for dietary choices, triggers for
depression, triggers for feeling overwhelmed, triggers for feeling dissatisfied and on and on.
2. Once you identify your triggers, write down ways to deal with them when they arise. One
example for me, I know when I get home at night and the kitchen is a mess and nothing has
been cleaned up, I get into a bad mood instantly. To combat this, I walk through the kitchen
(kiss my husband hello :)) and keep on walking to my bedroom where I know I will find peace,
relaxation, maybe a hot shower and time to decompress. All I need is about 10-15 min, then I
can come back out and my attitude is so much better.
3. Create a new pattern. This involves taking little steps. Baby steps every day leads to miles of
success. Maybe it’s saying “No” to one commitment a week. Maybe it’s committing to come to
the gym 3 times/week, no matter the cost. Maybe it’s choosing to drive past McDonalds, even
though you are starving, because you know if you eat a healthy dinner, you will feel so much
better physically.
It’s time to rediscover, rejuvenate and recover your mind, body and spirit.

Thank you Coach! Words to live by!
