Happy Autumn to you all! This is my favorite time of year; a nip in the air, the beautiful colors of the leaves, football games (which I don't really understand, but I love watching my boys play), homemade soup, hot chocolate, and I love getting back into my winter clothes--sweaters and comfy blue jeans! I hope you are finding joy in this season as well!
Here's a photo of the September Calyco Healing Intensive. We had such a great group of participants, who are now trained in this simple yet profound art and are helping themselves and others balance their energies and live more joyful lives!
The next CH training is in Feb. 2009. Read more about it at www.CalycoHealing.com
FYI: From Oct. 2008 through March 2009 I will not be available for private sessions. I am writing a book and working on several other projects, so I need to devote time for those things. I am sorry for any inconvenience to you, my loyal clients, but if you would like to schedule a phone session with one of my advanced Calyco Healing graduates please email Rhonda@carolyncooper.com for their names and contact information.

|Featured Article: The 5 Most Outrageous Weight Loss Myths
Because so many of my energy clearing sessions with clients involve weight and fitness concerns, this month I have borrowed a great article from my friend and fitness guru, Patti Goewey.

Calyco Healing can help you release any "struggle" energy and release old, negative patterns to make weight loss much easier, but you still need to give your physical body what it needs in terms of healthy food and exercise. Read on......
These days you can't go anywhere without hearing about a new weight loss breakthrough. A pill, a cream, or a new fad diet - you name it and it's going to solve all of your weight loss problems in 30 days or less. Or not.
The truth is that most of the things you hear about weight loss are hype. Plain and simple.
Here are the top 5 myths about weight loss:
Myth #1: You can spot reduce fat from specific areas of your body
This myth is as old as the hills, yet it persists. It must be that the thought of melting fat from any desired part of the body is so appealing, however untrue it may be.
In reality your body will lose weight wherever it wants to. It's safe to assume that you'll lose fat 'last place on, first place off'. So if you put on weight first in your thighs and then on your waist, then expect it to come off your waist first and then your thighs.
Myth #2: You have to count calories for weight loss
There are so many fad diets out there that paint the picture that weight loss is a complicated process. You have to eat certain foods at certain times and avoid other foods at all costs. Of course all of these popular diets conflict over which foods you should or shouldn't eat.
The truth is that you don't have to make weight loss such a science. Simply eat healthy fresh foods that haven't been processed, and eat smaller amounts than you're eating today.
No brain science there, just results.
Myth #3: You will bulk up with resistance training
I can't tell you how many times I've heard women tell me that they won't do resistance training because they don't want to bulk up. Each time I have to hide my smile.
You see, the process of bulking your muscles takes a lot of hard work. You have to consume high amounts of protein and you have to consistently tax your muscles to fatigue. And you have to have the male hormone testosterone coursing through your body. In short, there is no way to accidentally bulk up.
Myth #4: You can get a six pack from crunches
Just focusing on crunches will not make your midsection chiseled. Hey, ab crunches are great, and you should do them, but don't rely on them to get into great shape.
A trim midsection will only come as a result of proper nutrition, effective cardio and consistent resistance training.
Myth #5: Cardio is the most important exercise for fat loss
Most people think of cardiovascular activities when they think of working out. Going for a run, riding a stationary bike, or taking an aerobics class. Well, times have changed and so should your workout.
The benefits of resistance training now trump straight cardiovascular training. Resistance training strengthens your heart while toning muscles and increasing bone density.
Cardio workouts are not completely a thing of the past, they should fit into your overall plan for health and wellness. The benefits of resistance training, especially in fat loss, are astounding.
