It’s easy to get off track this time of year with all the sweet treats everywhere, but it doesn’t have to be that way. This photo was from the break room at work earlier this week. As you can see, I'm surrounded by tempting treats. I unconsciously had a Snicker's bar in my hand and was about to the walk out the door and enjoy it, but luckily I noticed what I was doing before I ate it. I took a few seconds to focus on my goals which are to keep my blood sugar low and to lose a few pounds and realized that eating the Snicker's bar was not going to get me the results I desired. I put the candy back and enjoyed a cup of mint tea instead. Have you ever eaten automatically or unconsciously? If so, you are not alone. The first step is to gain awareness. It is possible to feel good about the food you eat and still enjoy delicious meals. With a little help from me, you can make healthy choices without sacrificing flavor or feeling deprived. I believe in making small changes over time so they become second nature – not forcing yourself into an all-or-nothing approach that leaves you feeling frustrated and defeated. Let me show you how! If this sounds like something you could benefit from, then let's work together! We'll focus on creating new habits for eating well and living better-the exact habits that helped me release 80 pounds. We'll start by learning how to identify which foods are best for your body and mind, then move on to strategies for sticking with those healthy choices even when faced with temptation or stressors at home or at work. Finally, we'll take it one step further by exploring ways of nourishing our bodies through movement as well as mindfulness practices that will leave us feeling more energized than ever before! Are you ready? Let's do this together!
