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!  

With love, compassion, and non-judgement,

The Journey To A Better YOU

Weight-loss begins within.

Change Your Mind, Change Your Life!

images-36How many times have you set out to lose weight only to come upon some obstacle before you get started?  We have all been faced with this at some point or another.  Statistics give us hard evidence that we all start out with good intentions.  This ABC News article states that while the New Year is the best time to get a new membership, 60% of those memberships go unused! http://abcnews.go.com/Business/year-black-friday-gym-industry-now-time-find/story?id=12503698.  Holy moly!  The gyms rake in the dough come New Year’s!  What happens?  Weight-loss is not just about food and exercise.  The biggest obstacle when it comes to shedding those unwanted pounds, is changing your mindset.  The mind is a terrible thing to waste, but the mind is also very powerful.  Think about it, how easy is it to talk yourself out of something, or into something for that matter.

How many times a day do you say something negative about yourself?   Things like, “My arms are fat.  I’m too tired and out of shape.  I can’t do that.  I’m too busy.  I will never be able to do that.”  These are ALL negative messages that set you up for failure!   How long has this been going on?  Way too long!  I want to empower to change your mindset.  When you become conscious of your thoughts and replace the negative thoughts with positive thoughts you WILL change your life!  The negative thoughts must be shut down if you are going to achieve successful, permanent weight-loss.  That will sometimes mean shutting the person down who is speaking negative comments to you!  You need to surround yourself with positivity.  Things that are uplifting to your soul.  Changing your mindset isn’t much different from changing your food.  You replace a bad food with a good food; replace a negative thought with a positive thought!  Instead of looking at weight-loss with an attitude of deprivation look at with an attitude of success.  You are giving yourself and your family the gift of life!  You deserve to live a long healthy life.  You can do this!
