Welcome to “Real HOT, Real Life”! The Time is Now!
Hi, my name is Bonnie Newton! I am the driving force behind HorseOwnerToday.com (HOT). I am also Mom to a very active 6 year old boy and partner to an amazing man. We live on a small farm, a full time job, run a herd of horses, a small business, and HOT.
My big why for embarking on the “Real HOT, Real Life” journey is simple….fitness, wellness, balance and abundance! I have never lived a balanced life. My priority is me, sounds selfish but it is not. I must be fit to live a balanced life, to be the best I can be as a partner, a mother and a business owner. I must be well, my life must be balanced to live in abundance and this is the story of my journey.
Blaine Mackie of Mackie Physiotherapy said “Your physical self should lift up and enhance your mental self”. My schedule has been bizarre for the past 3 years, working at a desk for hours daily, my physical self is dragging (some parts more than others).
My first fitness goal is not to be a size 0, nor to achieve a perfect weight. I do not own a scale, never have. My goal is to only carry useful muscle. Fat is not useful, it is humiliating and unhealthy, a constant reminder of my “unbalanced life”. I am trying to work up the courage to video myself and measure all the critical parts so I have a comparison.
My second fitness goal is to maintain a constant weight and body fat level.
How am I going to achieve my fitness goals? Consistent nutrition plan, consistent exercise, and consistent hydration.
Which of these is toughest? No contest there consistent exercise is the toughest goal. I am busy and when trying to balance my schedule will remove exercise first. No more! Exercise is critical for me to be more productive, to maintain good health and maintain a high level of energy. I enjoy exercise, just seem to be willing to sacrifice it and myself.
The hydration is second place. I find it very difficult to drink adequate water so it has become a conscious exercise throughout the day.
The nutrition plan is what I find the easiest. I like the food the Team Savino included in my nutrition plan, I like eating...ok honesty wins I love eating! (I can eat anytime, anywhere)
