There was a time that instead of choosing to fuel my body with live giving, energy sustaining foods, that supported my health goals. I would pull through the closest fast food joint, and order a burger and fries, with a diet coke, or stop and pick up a pizza on the way home. I felt like I had no other options, or truth be told I was just too tired to do anything else. What I have found through my weight loss journey is that we all have to make a choice, and those decisions come with consequences; good or not so good.
We really are not victims in our lives; we are change makers. So if you want better health you have to choose better health, but you can't just stop there right? Faith without action is dead, and so is the idea of a trimmer waist, balanced hormones and more energy, if you are not willing to take action to support these goals.
Here are three action steps you can take today to support your weight loss goals:
- Out with the old and in with the new! (Not just a New Year resolution catch phrase)
- Fill your fridge and pantry with healthy foods. Think about how easy it is to grab a piece of fruit to snack on while you are making dinner. Fruit is the fastest food available, it will take less time to make dinner, than it would to pull through a drive thru if you use the tips and tricks I teach you! It takes no time at all to cut up some veggies, throw it into a pan on the stove-top and saute' them up with some nutritional yeast, black pepper and sea salt to taste, add in a can of organic pinto beans, lentils or tofu and you have a complete dinner!
- Change your mindset. This is the hardest part of getting healthy, if you are like I used to be, I had tried losing weight, and failed and failed again to keep it off. Somewhere in the back of my mind I had a pre-conceived notion that I was going to fail anyway, so what was the point? You have got to dig deep, find your why, and emotionally connect yourself to that reason you want to do this! You have got to get emotionally involved, feel what it feels like to be confident when its time to go out on a hot date with your main squeeze, or meet with your new client. Feel what it feels like within your soul to accomplish something that you have longed for, for so long.
There will be more to come, but for now work on these three steps!! If you want some support in breaking through those mindset barriers, I encourage you to schedule a few minutes with me in my Weight Release Breakthrough Session and let me help you break free from those self limiting beliefs and help you finally ditch the weight and hormonal imbalance for good.
Today I chose a liver supporting, organ cleansing juice to take with me out the door. It literally took me two minutes to blend up and poor in my glass. I love my Vitamix because I don't get chunks, so the following ingredients seem more like a juice than smoothie (without the messy clean up of a juicer)!
1cup of water, a pinch of sea salt, 2 handfuls of spinach leaves, 2celery stalks, a handful of cilantro, 2 spoons of beet powder and a squeeze of lemon.
HealthCoach Tip: Always include a citrus with your greens, it helps your body break down the iron in the plants, and makes it more readily available for your body!
Blessings in Health and Happiness,
