Healthy Living Made Fun with Rhino Julie

(Author of Your Goal Guide) Debra Eckerling discusses the ways in which you can make eating healthy fun on this #GoalChat recap.

On this week’s #GoalChatLive gym owner, health fanatic, and entrepreneur Rhino Julie joined me to talk about Healthy Living Made Fun! The May theme is Reconnecting, so this week we talked about reestablishing – and embracing – your health goals.

Rhino Julie talked about her love of food, her own health goals and challenges, and her backstory on how – and why – she became a gym owner.

The basic theme: To have a healthy lifestyle, decide what that means to you and find comfortable ways to make it happen.

  • You want to eat better: Keep healthy food in the house. And also plan special treats for yourself
  • Need to work out more: The ideal is 120 minutes a week, but even if you have only 30 seconds to work out, find ways to exercise during those short sprints of time
  • The biggest mistake people make is saying, “I will be happy if… I will be happy when …” Celebrate everything … the process … rather than stress out chasing results!

When I asked how she ranked the importance of eating well, working out, and self-care, Rhino Julie said sleep is most important. When you sleep well, you are able to be more active and also eat better.

A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals

Start with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.
