Welcome to Be Intentional. Be Healthy. I believe that life is to be lived to its fullest, with intention and with purpose. Although I’m not a hardcore exercise enthusiast, I do believe exercise keeps us functioning. While I’m also not a health food fanatic, I understand that what we eat matters for our overall health and well-being.
I love helping people set and achieve their health and fitness goals. As a personal trainer it is a privilege to be a part of someone’s journey; and I’m blessed to have a job I love and a family that supports my personal goals and dreams. We all have a story to tell; maybe there is someone out there who will benefit from me sharing what I’ve learned on my journey.
Learning to take control of your health
To be intentional means to be done on purpose or deliberately. In my opinion, to live life intentionally means that you take ownership of your actions, you set goals for your life, and you make choices that reflect your future goals.
Being healthy isn’t just the absence of disease. Your overall health and wellness includes physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. By participating in regular exercise, eating nutrient dense foods, and getting proper sleep you contribute to your overall health and well-being. Did you know that CBD can also promote your overall health and wellness? Please check out CBD and Your Health to learn more.
It might not be easy, but it’s worth it
Change is hard and losing weight and intentionally living a healthier lifestyle takes dedication, commitment to yourself, time, effort, and a great social support system. Sometimes, too, it takes someone to put things in a different perspective or to point out areas where you need to focus. This is where someone like me, a personal trainer and certified weight management specialist, can really help you on your journey through behavior modification.
Changing your life by changing your choices
We live in a society of “diet plans and weight loss programs.” If you’re someone who’s tried diet plans and programs, then you probably still have a “diet/program” mentality. This mentality is recognizable if you say things like, “I can’t eat that; I’m on a diet.” One of my goals is to teach you to think of eating healthier and making better choices for your health and wellness as “this is my life”, not “I’m on a diet.” It’s important for the changes you make to be permanent, not temporary like the diets or programs you’ve tried in the past.
My passion is helping people! I love cheeseburgers, french fries, pizza, and chocolate, just not everyday or even every week. Exercise is part of my life because I understand that it will keep me functional as I age. Life is meant to be lived, and I plan to stay as functional as possible by making better food choices and staying active. It would be a privilege to walk with you on your journey. Again, welcome; I hope you enjoy my blogs! In Health- Jennifer
