What doubts do you have about yoga, weight loss, and what it takes to get there?

While you ponder, read these helpful tips from Tiffany’s trainer, Tiffany Campbell.

GET ADEQUATE REST

I have people who come to my classes all the time with weight loss as their primary focus. However, when I ask them about their sleeping habits, they all complain about fatigue. Adequate rest makes all the difference in your ability to do anything, including show up for yoga or workout classes. You are not going to be able to get what you want out of your body if you are constantly pushing its limits. It’s like going to the bank for a withdrawal without making any deposits. So, make a commitment to adding more rest to your schedule.

BE MINDFUL

Many times we sit down to eat and think very little about how the food we eat makes us feel. Eating has become just another thing you have to do every day. If you feel bloated, uncomfortable or even sick, then rethink your food choice. Your food should make you feel nourished and satiated, not sluggish or gaseous.

CONVENIENCE

Make healthy eating convenient by preparing foods ahead of time and taking them with you if necessary. Most of my yoga clients are pushing their schedule to the limits, so taking time to cook every day seems to create more anxiety. My offering is to help them to prepare ahead of time for their week & that includes shopping & cooking. Planning ahead gives you the opportunity to shop ahead & cook ahead of time. This allows you to make better decisions about how to nourish yourself throughout the week.

Which of Tiffany’s rest and meal-planning tips resonate the most with you?

    That is a wonderful Team Tiffany documentary. Both of the Tiffany B is inspiring and Tiffany C is amazing. I can attest to the personal attention she gives and how she truly wants to spread total prosperity and health that you can carry with you a life time. My husband is taking her Yoga for Weightloss program this session, and he was inspired to change his eating habits, exercise, and sleeping habits. This is a wonderful, wonderful program. Thanks Tiff C….and keep going Tiffany B!!!

  • I actually love yoga for several reasons. From my experience it’s excellent for toning and given my health issues it has made a huge difference. However, as of late, I have not even taken a second to strike a pose. The other unfortunate thing is that I haven’t been getting a lot of sleep. Been extra busy with the children and my man is on the 3-11 shift. After we spend some time together and he finally relaxes it’s often after 2 a.m. and summer time rising time is 7ish.

    An-t-way, LOL, I don’t have any doubts about yoga or weight loss (still holding off the 60… uh, + 6 that I loss), I need to take heed to those tips and get back on my selective eating bandwagon.

    Congrats on the route to health! I look forward to hearing about week three.

    • Tif_brown

      60lbs….that is awesome! You go girl! 30 will be a miracle for me.lol.

      Life gets so busy so I truly understand. I face the same issue as well as being an emotional eater. I find that when I become stressed I lose it and eat what I want, without thinking. Even when I’m happy, I want to reward myself with a bad food. So….then came the weight. With the weight, came the shame and defeated attitude….which caused me to stop exercising. Yoga has been a good introduction back into centering my mind and focusing on me. I still have a long way to go but I am on my way.

      Be encouraged and revisit that place that brought you to the strongest you that dropped the weight. Your accomplishment is something to be celebrated and admired at the same time. Go do some Yoga today….(smile)

      • 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement. You gave me something to think about: Revisit
        that place that made me want to do it in the beginning. Hmmm?? That’s going to
        take some thought and consideration. Writing myself a note to do yoga first
        thing in the a.m. It’s almost 11 and I’ve had about three hours of sleep a few
        days in a row.

        Have a great night!

    Wow! This is great ! I definitely am working on getting adequate sleep. It’s so important.
    I have no doubts about yoga. I love it. Unfortunately, my practice of it has fallen to the wayside but I definitely am bringing it back into my regimen. I’ve never considered it for weight loss. I guess I’ve always thought that that was reserved for aerobic activities and exercises where you’re bouncing around or running. I’m curious though. Will definitely look into this.

  • Tif_brown

    I think I will go shop for a couple of cute yoga outfits next week….not much because I hope to need a smaller size really soon!
