Your Healthy Happy Getaway: An All Day Retreat for Women On the Go

ChristinaTanios

Imagine if you could spend a day learning how to create the lifestyle that you’ve always wanted, so that you can enjoy the health and happiness that you deserve.

On this all-women’s retreat, that’s exactly what we’ll be doing.

If you feel stressed out, exhausted, overwhelmed, and are struggling to find the time and energy to keep up with your busy life – you’re not alone. And, it’s not your fault. We all have so many commitments and obligations; it’s easy to see why we often neglect our wants and needs. But on this retreat we will learn how to manage stress, decompress, love ourselves, and prioritize our mental/physical/emotional/spiritual well-being.

We’ll have the day to do yoga, meditate, create vision boards, write positive affirmations, eat delicious plant-based food, listen to a nutrition workshop, and more. We’ll create an intention for the way we want to live our lives and we’ll learn how to carve out the time and space we need to live our dreams. We’ll finally be able to tend to ourselves, instead of constantly putting everyone else first.

In my time working as a Nutritional Consultant, I have helped people lose weight, lower their cholesterol levels, lower their blood pressure, reduce their blood glucose levels, manage their stress, get clear skin, sleep soundly at night, and much more. I am currently working with a vegan endurance athlete who wants to make sure that she is nourishing her body with healthy food. I have helped, and am continuing to help people transition to a healthy plant-based diet. And I love what I do! If you need help reaching your health and wellness goals, I am here for you.

I truly enjoy working with people and watching them know that health and happiness are within their reach. I have listened to my clients thank me for supporting them and teaching them what I know about leading a healthy, balanced lifestyle. I would love to do the same for you. Stop putting off your health goals. You can lose weight and get healthy now. There’s no time like the present to take charge of your life.

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

Berry Smoothie

I am excited to share that for the past several months I have been working with the Culver-Palms Family YMCA! After giving a few health and wellness workshops, I was asked to become a  member of the Healthy Lifestyles Committee and to help bring the amazing Diabetes Prevention Program to the Culver-Palms Family YMCA. In the time that I have been here, I have given more workshops, spoken to members about how they can make healthier food choices, encouraged people to try new fitness classes, and much more. Additionally, I am so happy to share that our Diabetes Prevention Program will start in September!

In case you haven’t heard, The American Diabetes Association reports that in the United States, in 2012, 29.1 million people had diabetes; 21.0 million people were diagnosed, while 8.1 million people had diabetes, but didn’t know it. Additionally, 86 millions Americans have prediabetes. Wow! These statistics are alarming, especially because complications that arise from having diabetes include high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, amputations, and nervous system disease.

Thankfully, there are many ways to help prevent and in some cases even reverse type 2 diabetes. I am proud to say that the YMCA has been doing an excellent job of providing people with lots of information on how to stay healthy and prevent the development of type 2 diabetes. The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is supported by the Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance on a nation-wide level and is also part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-led National Diabetes Prevention Program.

The YMCA’s year-long Diabetes Prevention Program starts with 16 weekly sessions and is then followed by 8 monthly maintenance sessions. At the Culver-Palms YMCA, participants will meet with me. This is a weight-loss program and we do want our participants to lose 7 percent of their body weight. If you join the program, you will have tons of information, support, and guidance. Since this will take place in a group setting, members will be able to reach out to people who completely understand what it’s like to need to lose weight, eat healthier foods, and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. As this is a prevention program, people who already have diabetes do not qualify to join. However, I feel strongly that everyone should receive assistance, so if you already have diabetes, please contact me for more information on other programs that are right for you.

During the course of the Diabetes Prevention Program, members will learn how to stay motivated, be active, manage stress, eat less, make better food choices, and much more. If you are interested in joining this program, you must be 18 years of age or older and have a BMI of 25 or more (unless you are Asian or Pacific Islander, in which case your BMI must be 22 or greater); some participants will need lab values from their doctors (such as their A1c levels, fasting plasma glucose, 2-hour plasma glucose, and/or confirmation of having had Gestational Diabetes (GDM) during previous pregnancy).

I am so excited to be a part of such a wonderful, generous, positive, inspiring community. I truly feel right at home, here at the Culver-Palms Family YMCA. If you’d like to sign up for our Diabetes Prevention Program, be sure to take this risk assessment quiz, and contact me for more information at christinatanios@ymcala.org. I am looking forward to working with you!

Spring Super Smoothies Workshop at Whole Foods Market

WholeFoodsPasadena

Last  night I gave a health workshop at Whole Foods Market in Pasadena. The focus of the workshop was how to incorporate healthy, whole foods in our diet and I  made three different smoothies for people to sample. I am so happy to say that the workshop went well; everyone working at Whole Foods was kind and supportive. The audience was a pleasure to speak with, and I was so excited when Jay, the marketing manager said that he had never seen a group of people so engaged during a workshop at Whole Foods! I love to have interactive workshops, so I was thrilled to have so many people asking questions and being fully present during the presentation.

It’s always fun for me to meet new people who are interested in making healthier diet and lifestyle choices. During the workshop, people learned how different foods affect our health; many people were surprised by all the benefits we get from making simple additions to our diet, including eating more greens, berries, pineapple, coconuts, ground flaxseeds, raw cacao, and more. I had such a wonderful time and am grateful for this amazing opportunity. Below is a picture of all the yummy ingredients I used to make the smoothies:

During the workshop, I made my Super Green Smoothie, Superfoods Smoothie, and Dessert Smoothie (which I also call my, “Tropical Island Smoothie” because it reminds me of being on vacation on a beautiful island :)).

If you missed last night’s workshop, but would like to attend another one soon, I’ll be giving a health workshop at Whole Foods Market in Porter Ranch on March 25th at 6:00PM. I would love to see you all there!
