Good Afternoon Health Heads :)

Today I wanna chat about being resourceful.  Resourcefulness is all about solving problems!  In regards to our health, there are always problems that need solved, and we can identify those problems, but solving them isn't as easy.  This cycle is usually the main cause for dropping out of the game of conscious health.  BUT PEOPLE, its 2013!!!  There are endless amounts of resources out there waiting for you to take advantage of them ;).  Lets talk more about this cycle...

1. Awareness of a problem
2. Identify the cause
3. Find all possible solutions
4. Choose the best solution
5. Try it out
6. If it fails, choose another route and continue till one works -- If it works, pat yourself on the back, and wait for the next problem to arise!

Where do you fall off the wagon?  Think about it.

However, back to the main point of this post... after steps one and two, resourcefulness can give you that extra edge in this game of life.  #3. Find all possible solutions.  Go out there and find the perfect solution to your health or happiness problem.  Don't be afraid to ask someone else for help, whether its a knowledgable friend, or a professional.  Don't be afraid to use an app for that.  Don't be afraid to "go within" (meditate).  Don't be afraid if the solution for your problem is different than everyone else's.  Pay attention to clues to any problems with in your health / happy journey, and don't be afraid to be a problem solver.  

Resourcefulness ---> knowledge ---> power  ---*you have the power to take control of your health and happiness.

Here are two links to older posts of mine that will be helpful resources along with this topic ;) --check them out.

WOW workout of the week 5/6/13 (1) from jesbodimer on Vimeo.

HERE IT IS!!! WOW #1 -- ask questions, and repeat through the week to watch your progress!!!! Good luck! Let me know how it goes!

15mins (after you've stretched and warmed up)
5mins: split up into 30s parts, two movements
Clap Jacks (30s) --> Jack Squats (30s) ---------> for 5mins
do non-stop if you are highly active -- add 30s rest half way through the 5mins if you are less active

5mins (depending on fit level): a sit up / push up PYRAMID
choose whichever exercise to start with: 10reps of exercise one, 1rep of exercise two
THEN ----> 9reps of exercise one, 2reps of exercise two ----> continue in this manner until you've completely switched to doing exercise one 1time, and exercise two 10times :)

5mins (depending on your fitness level)
10 walking lunges
5 burpees
get as many rounds in as you can in 5mins :)

COOL DOWN and stretch when you are finished.
To make this work out longer than 15mins, repeat it to your allotted amount of time
Today I release a new addition to Happy & Healthy Bodi!! Its called WOW, which stands for workout of the week.  They will always be 15mins long, always be modifiable for any fitness level, and and DIY friendly!  No equipment will be needed for these workouts as of now.  The point of these are to give you something to use to get more movement in your day!  They are to help you tip or maintain your balance of caloric intake versus burn.
You'll be able to tailor these workouts to your life based on the amount of time you allot, your level of intensity, and the frequency / duration you pick for the week.  Please ask questions.  There are so many variations of these workouts.  Please do some research!  The journey of health is an educational one!  The more you learn along the way, the more equipped you are to continue on the route of health and happiness!  Stay tuned for WOW #1!!!
