How is your week? Mine has been extremely busy and it is not the way I planned it, but I still manage to accomplish the goals I set for this week, so even though I feel tired, I am content with what I’ve done.

Thank you for the wonderful messages you sent me this week. Even if I don’t get back to you, you have no idea how wonderful my life is, because of your beautiful words and messages. So keep in mind, that the time you took to write me, really counts and really makes a difference!

This week I chose to answer the question about proper squat form and some corrective exercises, cellulite and how to get rid of it, as well as the difference between physical and emotional hunger.

Hello, Ines!

I’ve been reading your blog for a couple months and I finally dared to start working out the way you recommend. But I have a problem with the squat. My knee is kind of going inside. How could I fix it and why I sit happening?

This is a common mistake. In my opinion there are two possible reasons for it and a couple ways to fix it.

One of the reasons is your week abductors or in other words the weak muscles on the outer side of your thigh. When your adductors ( the muscles on the inside) are stronger, compared to those on the outside, they will logically “pull” your knee inside. Thus, when you are under the bar, the weight will press you and your weak muscles wouldn’t be able to handle it ( to keep your knee parallel to your foot) and it will cave in.

Another reason, could be not enough ankle mobility. I know that it sounds weird, but there is a big chance that this is the problem. Or in other words you don’t have good dorisflexion ( showed on the picture below). This limited mobility doesn’t allow your leg to move in the proper direction, so your body is compensating, by diverting the movement in a direction, where there is enough mobility.

The  first problem could be treated in a couple ways.

The first one is to imagine that you are trying to spread the floor. Squat down and when you go up, imagine that you are trying to pull apart the ground beneath your feet.

The other one is to emphasize on these exercises ( read HERE).  This will help you strengthen your abductors.

And the third one is to use a band, that you will place around your knees. When you perform the squat, you will aim at not letting your knees cave in and to not let  the band loosen.

And when it comes to ankle mobility, here(  here,here,here и here )и there are plenty of ideas how to improve it.

Ines, during the past couple years, I gained some weight and unfortunately everything went on my thighs and butt. But the worst part is the cellulite. Do you think that more massages and more running will help me get rid of it?

HERE I wrote a post about cellulite, the reasons for eat, as well as what you are supposed to do in order to get rid of it.

As I’ve mentioned before, back in the days I used to have a lot of cellulite. Fortunately it is already gone, but not with the help of massages and running, but with the help of quality food and lifting weights. In case you are more interested in the topic, read the post I recommended you above. But yet, I guess that from my response you understood that massages and running aren’t the best solution.

Hello, Ines. I am trying to eat healthy, but I have a problem. I am used to eating and now I find it hard to make the difference between physical and emotional hunger. How could I start making the difference?

This is a common problem. Here are some tips that will help you make the difference.

1.Hunger is physiological need, meaning your body needs fuel.

Cravings are psychological needs, meaning that you need to fill an emotion

2.Hunger gets stronger as the time goes by, and no matter if you go for a walk or whatever you get busy doing, it won’t go away!

Cravings, on the other hand pass. They last just for 10 to 20 minutes. You get yourself distracted with something else, and they are gone!

1. Hunger doesn’t appear in just a minute. It is a process. After you have eaten your last meal, you experience a boost in your energy, and it slowly declines after that!

Cravings come with an urgency. In one moment you feel full and satisfied and a couple minutes later, you really want to eat a piece of cake or candy!

3.Hunger makes your stomach growl.

Cravings don’t cause your stomach to make noises. Cravings are in your brain!

On the other hand, cravings can be due to emotional and physiological reasons.

Emotional cravings are when a memory or a feeling makes you experience an urge to eat a pancake or some other kind of junk. You know how you loved to visit your grandma because of the great pancakes she used to make you for breakfast, right? That memory became connected to the good feeling you used to experience. So, now when you go to your grandma’s house you might feel a craving to eat a pancake. But do you really need it? The answer is NO!

Physiological cravings appear when your body is deficient in some kind of nutrients! You might think you are eating right, but your body might have another opinion. SO you better listen to your body. Which is not a green light to indulge in junk food. Check out this article and find out what hides behind each craving!

I am a ‘something-searcher person” and I have devoted my life to the mission to reveal myself, to improve, to collect the pieces of puzzle in my own nature, so that to give and to receive from life as much as possible. My Life is history, full of broken dreams, falls, disappointments and finally achieved awareness, that it all depends on me and that each opportunity can be a materialized reality. We only have to think and act in a way, which will lead us on the road to its implementation. The most valuable resources we have are our time and health, and our Body is the instrument, through which we use them, to crate the world we live in. I dedicated my life to share myself, the wisdom and experience, which had left after the mistakes I had done. I am doing this in order to help people find their way, which will let them “’reinvent”’ themselves, to restore their health, confidence and trust for life. I wish they could realize their own potential. Training is rehearsal for the life itself; this is the place, where on a few square meters in the IFS you can experience each of the possible sensations- triumph, fall, disappointment, hope, will, weakness, and most of all power. The place, where in “monitoring conditions”” you can remind your body how to move correctly, how to work in your interest. Everything I have tried to achieve through IFS and the trainings is to help people bring back their consciousness, health and freedom to be who they are-without doubting. I have given myself time to re-build and to re-invent myself! Give yourself time as well. Come and train with us in IFS!
