San Antonio, let’s make this the year of movement! As the phrase says, “A new year, a new you.” Let us help you make this phrase become a reality. Many times we say that at the beginning of the year we are going to start eating healthier and become more active, but then we forget about it. Well this year, DON’T! Let this year be the year you don’t forget, let this year be the year you move. Move yourself to a better, healthier life.
We can help you move into the New Year and the years to come! Let us shape your Mind, Body and Soul (MBS).
Come relax your mind at our spa with a massage or a facial. Massages and facials relieve stress and cause you whole body to gently flow into relaxation.
Shape your body by trying out a fitness class such as Combat Kung Fu, Acroyoga, pilates or come tryout CrossFit at Mind Body Soul CrossFit. Trust us, after a few classes, you won’t want to look back. Exercising produces endorphins, causing your mind, body and soul to be happy! Also, start eating new and real foods, which you can get at our Uncommon Fare store.
Relax your soul with some heated vinyasa or moon salutation. Allow yourself to escape your thoughts for a while and surrender to the beauty and relaxation of yoga. Your soul will thank you, as well as your body and mind!
All of these classes and other aspects of MBS will be offered at the beginning of January and we even offer lunch yoga! Come on San Antonio, let's stop making excuses and let’s move!
When it comes to weight loss, it’s not just about exercising, it’s also about what you eat. Did you know you that you could burn fat while eating certain food? These foods burn muscle, burn fat or use energy to digest. They start trimming your waistline as soon as they leave your plate and enter your mouth.
Almonds help build muscle and help with craving. Instead of eating that candy bar when you want a snack, just grab a handful of almonds!
Eggs help build muscle and burn fat. I can see why Gaston from Beauty and the Beast always ate five dozen eggs to help him get large.
Lean meats such as turkey help build muscle and strength your immune system. A turkey a day will keep the doctor away!
Green tea helps fire up fat burning. According to health.com, drinking four cups of green tea a day can help you shed more than six pounds in eight weeks.
Chili peppers help boost metabolism, so be sure to put a lot in your next batch of salsa!
Whole grains such as quinoa, brown rice and whole grain cereal help prevent your body from storing fat. These whole grains should be eaten in small doses.
Grapefruit helps regulate blood sugar and metabolism. Along with grapefruits, other citrus fruits such as oranges, kiwi, lemon and limes also burn fat because the acid that is present in these fruits.
Fatty fish such as salmon and tuna help keep you full and also trigger fat burning.
Beans and legumes build muscle, burn fat and help regulate your digestive system
We're all creatures of habit. Good ones, and bad ones. And it's these daily habits and patterns that create who we are, and can have a profound impact on our health and wellness.
Example? I have a habit of going on a walk each day - and that's pretty good. But I also have the habit of eating an entire bag of almond m&ms - and that's not so good.
If my m&m habit begins to consistently and constantly override my daily walk or other healthy habits, well then I'll pay the price in the form of diminished health and tighter pants. And that will be who I become - the guy with the belly who's always eating chocolate.
But the opposite is also true. If I continue my positive healthy habits, am more consistent with them, and even add a few new ones in, then I tend to feel and look better, and get close to living the life of the superman I want to be.
And that's true for pretty much everyone and everything. You are the result of the things you do the most, and the things you do the least. But if we're looking to make improvements in our lives, then we need to mix things up a bit. We need to be more consistent with positive behaviors (like quality sleep), or take on new ones, while doing our best to reduce the negative ones (the mindless munching while watching Netflix).
So what's the problem?
Discomfort. Unease. Anxiety. Fear. And above all, strangeness.
We often like what we like and do what we do because it's familiar and comfortable - eating lunch at the desk instead of going out or moving around, the glass (or three) of wine at the end of the day, the extra-large spoonfuls of ice cream after dinner...
Those are all just self created patterns. So what the heck would happen if you broke them?
What if you went to a yoga class at lunch, or met a coworker for a walk instead? Focused your attention on a conversation with your partner or kids or a close friend instead of a wine bottle? Planned your meals or workouts for the next day after dinner?
Initially, those changes may seem strange or weird, but once you follow through with them for a week or two, they will become your new normal. They become your new routine. And they will define who you are.
So here's your call to action. Pick one less than ideal habit, and try to replace it with a healthier one. It doesn't have to be big or significant, just a slight improvement over whatever it is that you're doing right now - like standing up and stretching for ten minutes if you're a committed desk jockey, having one drink instead of three, or eating half a bag of m&ms instead of a whole one - you get to decide just how big that change is and how far you want to go with it.
Follow that new habit for a week or two and see what happens. You may just be amazed at how quickly and easily you can adapt to new, healthier habits. And how those small habits can lead to an even better, healthier version of you.
