Health Coach’s Corner: Top New Years Resolution

By | Club News | No Comments
What Will 2020 Hold? Statistically, this chart represents most people, most years. With “Diet and Healthier Eating” topping the Resolutions chart, motivation most often fades and goals are often abandoned in less than 6 weeks. What will 2020 hold? Probably the same. People clearly WANT to be healthier and resolutions are a clear signal that individually and culturally this is a problem that is begging to be solved. What about you? Have you made a conscious decision to set a goal for yourself in the new year? Why do most resolutions lose their luster? How can YOU make resolutions that stick and are set up for success? When it comes to healthier eating, the plan must be achievable, realistic: • Get educated • Get prepared, get a plan and program • Get accountable Are you? • You don’t know where to start and how to approach a different way of...

Health Coach’s Corner:
Guilty or Peaceful Holiday Eating

By | Club News | No Comments
Bowl Full Of Jelly The holidays are filled with fun and so much food. We want to enjoy the parties, people, and eating. It is common to see these festive foods as “temptations” or something that we “treat” ourselves to. We overindulge, avoid, and dance around these foods throughout the next several weeks. This anxious and guilty holiday eating season is often a negative emotional layer to the festivities. In some cases, the internal struggle over food keeps us from allowing ourselves to enjoy events and the people we love. Yet, we don’t have to experience holiday eating this way. We can approach fancy dinners and festive food differently. We can approach and experience the holidays and its food with peace and intentionality. You can choose to eat certain foods on purpose with no guilt, but with intentionality—knowing that you are embracing an educated and empowered way to eat. Rather...

Balancing The Holiday The holiday season is in full affect, especially at Costco, with Christmas decorations already being sold! Where did the time go? We have had some amazing results with our Balanced Habits 28 day Kick Starters this past month! Those that really embraced the program have found a new balance with food that they can carry on throughout this holiday season. If you didn’t get the opportunity to do Kick Start, don’t worry! You always have the opportunity to sign up for our Life program. Our “Lifers” are getting real, life changing results! The “Life” program is founded on the same principle of balanced eating with weekly one on one help from a supportive food coach. So, let’s think about how you want to ring in the New Year.
