A Walk In The Park

A Walk In The Park

Today I am going to give you 8 benefits of thinking weight loss is just a Walk In The Park.

Journal Exercise

As we start this morning write in your journal or leave it in the comments.  Do you think that weight loss is easy or hard?  What makes it easy or hard?


When I was a kid my Saturday Morning Ritual was watching cartoons, now my Saturday Morning Ritual is to take time for me.  To reflect on the past week and set strategies for the week ahead.

  • “Two heads are better than one”  That is why we join together as a supportive community to support our intentional growth.

  • A special place where you can celebrate your success and grow from challenges.

  • Keep you accountable and committed to goals and feel supported along the way

  • Develop and hone your self-awareness and Adventure Mindset

  • Overcome obstacles and challenges that keep you from reaching your potential

First, we have a ritual - Brain Body Connection, Success and Setbacks and then more on TOPIC of THE WEEK

Movement is considered the human being’s first language. Movements strengthen the neural pathways between the brain and body. Learning, thought, creativity, and intelligence are not brain processes alone but the whole body.

The Topic of The Week- A Walk In The  Park

Ah, "a walk in the park" – it's not always about strolling through greenery and enjoying nature's beauty, is it? This phrase has sneaked into everyday language to mean something quite different from its literal interpretation. Here's how people often use it in various contexts:

Easy Task or Effortless Experience: When someone says, "It's a walk in the park," they're usually referring to something that's incredibly easy or effortless. For example, if you're talking about a project at work that turned out to be simpler than expected, you might say, "Oh, that presentation was a walk in the park.

Simple Solution or Quick Fix: Similarly, "a walk in the park" can suggest a simple solution to a problem or a quick fix. For instance, if someone is discussing a technical issue and someone else suggests an easy workaround, they might respond with, "That sounds like a walk in the park!"

Smooth and Enjoyable Experience: Beyond just being easy, "a walk in the park" can also imply that something is smooth, enjoyable, and without any complications. You might hear someone say, "Compared to last year's event, organizing this year's conference was a walk in the park."

Casual Stroll or Leisurely Activity: Of course, the phrase still retains its literal meaning in some contexts, referring to a casual stroll or leisurely activity. But even in this sense, it can connote relaxation, calmness, and tranquility.

Sarcasm and Irony: In certain contexts, "a walk in the park" can be used sarcastically or ironically to emphasize the difficulty or unpleasantness of a situation. For example, if someone is describing a particularly challenging task, they might say, "Oh, sure, dealing with that client was just a walk in the park."

So, whether it's describing something effortless, smooth sailing, or even sarcastically highlighting a challenge, "a walk in the park" has become a versatile phrase in everyday language, offering a colorful way to express various shades of experience and emotion.
