Consistency is the key to key to success! Give yourself five minutes each day to do this workout and reap incredible rewards. Consistency is the key to success. Many of my clients are telling me that they are doing the workout mid-morning or mid-afternoon for a break, or in the evening before bed. This is perfectly fine. The important thing is to give yourself these five to ten minutes each day to do the workout. There are days here and there that I miss it, but I always make sure I get right back to it, so that I do not lose the momentum and progress I have made. Making the workout part of your daily ritual will improve your health and well-being.
Avoid holiday weight gain! Colder weather, shorter days and the holidays are triggers for many of us to head to the pantry for comfort foods. Holiday weight gain seems to be a part of the season to be jolly. It is very easy to start packing on the pounds and to camouflage them under those nice thick sweaters! There is help is available for those of us that lose our willpower and discipline during the holiday season and winter months.
Don’t deny yourself all of the holiday foods, simply have a small serving and drink plenty of water. When you go to parties be sure to moderate the amount of food you serve yourself. Buffets can be dangerous. Place a sensible amount of the food on your plate and eat slowly. Do not go back for additional servings. Find other areas of interest to focus on besides the food and drinks to avoid holiday weight gain. Try to limit alcohol as well. If you drink an alcoholic beverage, alternate it with water. Learn to say “no thank you,” when someone offers you more food and more to drink. It is okay to say you have had enough. It may not be easy, but you will feel much better if you limit serving sizes and calories during this time of year! Avoid SSB (Self-sabotaging behavior)!

One of my favorite moves in the 5-Minute Pajama Workout is the Happy Baby! For those of you not familiar with this move, it is a yoga move where you lie on your back and bring your legs up and place your hands on the insteps of your feet. You then rock back and forth and then rock from side to side. It is a great stretch and feels really good.
A major part of the Team PJW program is the psychology involved. This is not just a five-minute workout, it is a program that will reframe your thinking and help you to become more positive on a daily basis.
Introducing Team PJW! This has been a crazy year of changes and new transitions. Moving from Colorado to San Diego last June (fabulous) spending time in Guatemala (incredible) and getting settled in beautiful San Diego have been even better than I had imagined.
I’m excited to introduce the 5-Minute Pajama workout to the world. This is something that I have been doing for myself and refining for over two years. I created this program with the goal of sharing it with others that were in similar situations. As a busy professional with limited time, it was difficult to sustain a regular workout routine. I have always tried to work out, but like most of us, there are many days, weeks, and months, that it just falls by the wayside due life’s many demands.
I started doing this workout as a way to help me to wake up and energize my body and brain for the day. I was trying to make some major changes in my life and was totally drained of energy. Continue reading
