WEIGHT GAIN & MINDFULNESS
with David Callari & Nancy Cucchiara
Even though everyday life continues to evolve towards the “back to school” schedules most kids and parents are used to, the everyday is far from “normal”.
Different ways of learning for kids, working from home, and general stress can be difficult to put in its place, and sometimes can have an effect on our exercise and nutrition routines. Here we have David Callari of RPM Nutrition and one of THE GYM’s amazing dance instructors Nancy C discussing some of the post quarantine pitfalls and some strategies to help get you back on track.

Not Binge Worthy
WITH JUAN PLA
You will want to avoid restrictive eating patterns because this will increase your chances of binge eating during isolation. Try to adopt a consistent pattern of eating, where you opt for 3 square meals plus 1 or 2 snacks per day, spaced evenly apart. Eating in this pattern will make you more conscious and will prevent any feelings of extreme hunger, hence giving you control over your day.
Take up a New Hobby
Now is the perfect time to take up that hobby you’ve always wanted to. Taking up a new hobby is crucial because it takes away most of the factors that trigger eating disorder behaviors. More specifically, a new hobby relaxes you, gives you purpose, builds your self-esteem, and ultimately reduces the importance you place on eating, shape and weight.
Reduce Your Social Media Usage
Given that social media usage is associated with more body image issues and disordered eating behaviors, you want to try to reduce the time you spend on these platforms. Not only could you reduce the time spent on social media, but you may also want to unfollow accounts that reinforce those appearance ideals that tend to make you feel particularly bad about yourself.
COVID-19 is a formidable foe to your health on many levels, but there are many factors you can take charge of that will leave you safe and sound when it’s all said and done. Don’t let your isolation from the virus bring about other health concerns and take control of your life now with a little help from your friends at THE GYM.
Right Mask, Right Mindset.
WITH NURIT CHASMAN
It’s all about having the right mindset and, of course, the right mask. Come try it for yourself and see how you too can squat, curl and even do burpees with it on. Of course, modifications are always there for you if you feel like it’s hard for you with the mask, but once you’ve tried it, you will feel so much more confident that you can come back and challenge yourself inside THE GYM. It’s so important to keep up our routines right now. Watching all of you adjust is amazing.
As the weather changes and you need to bring your routine indoors, we will be here waiting for you in class and on the fitness floor. As always, we continue to be thankful for our amazing cleaning team here at THE GYM that has been so diligent with keeping our space clean ensuring your safety and health.
See you in class!

Looking forward to seeing you again at THE GYM,
The Call To Courage
WITH LAUREN PLA
I love her.
I can typically tune in to her via her podcast (Unlocking Us) or one of her books via Audible…because I don’t really have time to sit and read, so I listen while I’m in the car. Since she narrates them herself, it hits the spot. Did I mention that I love her?
My guess is that you fall into one of three categories:
Of course I know who she is and I’ve seen everything and read all of her books and I love her too!
I’ve heard of her but I don’t really know that much about her.
I’ve never heard of her.
I suppose there might also be a category for people who don’t care for her, and that’s totally fine, but my guess would be it’s a small group.
In any case, I feel like it is my Divine mission to suggest (Request? Implore?) that everyone (whether you never heard of her, or you do know her and just haven’t seen this yet) watch her Netflix special: The Call to Courage.
This is just over an hour of your time, and it is my belief that it will have a life-altering effect on everyone who watches it. Men, this includes you. Just in case any of you reading this are thinking “Brené is more for women”, I fully and totally challenge you, and if you do accept the challenge, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts after you watch it.
As a matter of fact, I’d love to hear from any and all of you who have either seen it or go ahead and watch it after reading this article. You can email me directly at Lauren@HineniCoaching.com.
You will not regret the investment on time on this.
