Scale Jail

images-21Many of us torture ourselves by getting on the scale day-in and day-out.  Well the truth of the matter is that sometime, most of the time, the scale doesn’t tell the whole story.  It can’t!!!!  When you have been working out hard and staying committed to your plan the last thing you want to do is get on that scale and have it shatter your motivation!  Trust me it will!  Today I want to offer you a “GET OUT OF SCALE JAIL” card.  With my mega phone I am giving you permission, while ordering you to, “PLEASE BACK AWAY FROM THE SCALE!”

Here are 3 factors that could impact that number on the scale:

1) Did you eat or drink anything prior to getting on that scale?  (I am pretty sure you did, so don’t do it!)

2) What did you eat the night before?  Did you have a nice clean meal or was it Saturday night cheat night and you treated yourself to a little something, something?  Again, don’t do it!  Most of the foods that we consider “cheat foods” do nothing but make us bloated with all of there sugar and salty goodness!

3)  Have you been drinking enough water?  I for one know that my water intake has a huge impact on my weight.  I try to drink 10 glasses of water a day.  That’s 80 oz.  When I fall short of that I can definitely feel the effects.  My body starts to hold onto fluid, instead of flushing it out.

I hope this will release you from you self-imposed scale jail, for a little while anyway.  If you need to be reminded, let me know!  I encourage you to buy a tape measure and take your measurements!  When you can see the inches melt away that’s when you know you are changing your body composition…and that doesn’t always show on the scale!

Happy New Year!

ImageWell we survived another year!  Whew, some by the skin of their teeth!  I am happy to have celebrated another birthday in the New Year and I look forward to a prosperous 2014.  I am sure many of you set some resolutions for 2014…it’s day 6…I am sure many have broken them already. LOL!  I personally did not set any for myself.  I would much rather set daily goals, monthly goals, or quarterly goals.  Shorter goals just work better for me.  They seem more manageable.  Not too mention my life has been one big series of goals!  I am happy to say that I have accomplished the goals that I have set for myself.  I am not saying that it was easy…at times it was very tough and gut wrenching.  Making it through those difficult times made the finish line that much sweeter.  Remember, whatever your goals for 2014, there will be disappointments and setbacks but those are temporary….you WILL accomplish the goals that you set for yourself.  I guarantee when you reach your personal finish line you will have grown leaps and bounds, learning things about yourself and those around you that you never even noticed.   Stay focused, keep your eye on the prize and don’t let anything stop you from being the best person that you were created to be.  

Happy New Year with love, compassion, and non-judgement!

Happy Holidays

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!
