Help, They Are Sabotaging My Weight Loss!

You have decided to make healthy changes in your life.  You are eating right and exercising regularly, and the people that you thought would support you the most are actually sabotaging your efforts!  You know the ones – the friends that tell you to “just have a little piece, you only live once!”, or that family member that says “don’t be rude, eat some of aunt sally’s pie.”, and those co-workers that just love to poke fun at your efforts “hope you’re enjoying your lettuce over there while I eat my fries.” We all have these people in our lives, and if getting healthy isn’t hard enough on your own, they certainly don’t help!  So how do you “battle” these people without hurting their feelings? After all, it’s usually the ones closest to you, so you can’t just avoid them.  There’s always a work lunch, or a family get together, or a baby shower, or a night out with the guys, or a girls night out to attend…How can you stick to your new habits and reach your goals with all these people working against you?

Why I’m a Selfie Queen and You Should Be Too

Why I’m a Selfie Queen and You Should Be Too

Look around at any given location and I can bet that you’ll see someone taking a selfie (and most likely it’s me! 😉 ). We are definitely seeing the selfie generation! Have you seen the story about the sorority girls at the baseball game? The announcers just couldn’t wrap their heads around why they would be taking selfies and not watching the game. (I love the girls’ response by the way) And for as many selfies as I see posted online, I see just as many people screaming for us to stop (just like those baseball announcers).

Believe Me, I Get It!

Believe Me, I Get It!

In talking to a few new clients this week, I realized that a lot of you haven’t known me very long. You have only seen where I am now in my health journey.  Many of you may think that I can’t relate to where you are now, but believe me, I get it!  I have come a LONG way in my health journey over the last decade, and some of you don’t really know where I started. So I’m going to share my beginning with you today… Continue reading “Believe Me, I Get It!”

My TEDx Debut!

I am EXTREMELY honored to have been a part of the very first TEDxAntioch!! It was an AMAZING day with so many great speakers and ideas worth spreading!

“This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Hether shares her ideas for how we can change our lives via nutrition and committing to one small change in order to watch our bodies work the way they were designed to.

Hether Crawford is a Personal Trainer and owner of Hether Crawford Fitness. Her commitment to health, nutrition, and fitness was born out of necessity after watching her son suffer from asthma and her daughter struggle to concentrate at school. Through simple changes to what she fed her family, Hether changed her family’s world, and fueled her passion to help others make the same changes.”
