The holidays are officially upon us! Lot’s of party’s and dinners with friends and family! Yep it is a fun time of the year! I am sure many of you are thinking about going out with a bang before you start your new workout plan or diet in January. This is great and I wish you nothing but success. Here are 3 tips for you in as you begin your journey to a better you:
1) Set realistic goals for yourself. It’s a journey not a sprint! Don’t set yourself up for failure.
2) Reflect on 2013 and look at what you want to do differently and set some non-weight related goals. Things that will give you mental health like facing some of your fears, weeding out unnecessary stress, and incorporating something you love to do into your everyday life.
3) Practice forgiveness of YOURSELF and others. When coaching my clients on their weight-loss journeys I find that they are guilt ridden and that guilt undermines everything that they are trying to do, that’s good, for themselves and their families.
BONUS TIP: Don’t be afraid to ask for support when you need it! We all need to be support! Ask and you shall receive!
Have a wonderful Holiday Season and a Prosperous and Healthy New Year!
With love, compassion, and non-judgement,
Weight-loss begins within.
