Above and beyond creating a healthier you, Kimberly’s words of wisdom will empower you to a healthier relationship with both yourself and your food!
Tip #1 Don’t look down!
In the same sense as don’t look behind you –you’re not going that way. In life and slacklining keep eyes up and focused *forward.* Look toward your destination. Trust your gut. Let your sense of balance tell you where and how to step. Live intuitively.
Tip #2 Chill out.
Relax. Focus on releasing tension from arms/shoulders before stepping on the line or out into life. Worrying is praying for what we do not want. Fear based living OR ‘lining doesn’t work. Make that mind/body connection—but don’t over think it.
Tip #3 Be consistent.
Try new things–but keep returning to the old. From ‘lining to living practice breeds success.
Tip #4 Giggle. Laugh. Have fun.
Life is short—don’t always be serious and outcome focused. Enjoy the process of slacklining–don’t worry about making it to to the end of the line.

Enjoy this week’s Transformational Tuesday’s – Fitness Tip Of The Week!
During cardio, it takes about 20 minutes to stop burning sugar and to start burning fat. So do your weights first (to burn that sugar) and your cardio last and your workouts will be more efficient.
Have you ever been on a weight loss and fitness program? You were very excited starting out. You joined a gym, bought some sexy workout clothes, cleaned out your pantry and refrigerator, dumping your junk food stash. You were ready to go and, in about two weeks, give or take a few days, something happened — You decided to quit. How Come?
Many people find change scary, even if it is good for them. That being said, losing weight can be scary, because in most cases, that weight is an emotional barrier. It keeps the mind feeling safe and protected.
My question to you is, what does change mean to you and how can you easily shift, one little step at a time, to make your life amazing? For the next 90 days, change one small thing each day and ask yourself “How can I make this change fun?” After that 90 days track your progress and see how far you have come.
