Eating healthy isn't that complicated and here's why

Food Rules by Michael Pollan
An Eater's Manual

In my current 8-week Freedom From Diet Hell coaching program, I decided to use Michael Pollan's book "Food Rules" as the textbook for the group coaching class because as the subtitle says, it's an "eater's manual".

If you're a chronic yo-yo dieter, and want to get off that crazy train, an eater's manual is super helpful.

Just saying 'an eater's manual' out loud makes me pause and wonder, how did we get here...needing a manual to know what and how to eat?

Rather than get all hung up on that, I've accepted that in today's world with all the misguided, confusing and downright wrong nutrition advice out there, just to be thankful that Pollan did his research and put it so succinctly into this short, power-packed book.

And speaking of succinct, here's a video by Brian Johnson describing '5 Big Ideas' he captured from the book.

If you're frustrated with your health and confused about how to eat healthy to improve it, this is a must read book.

Meditation Event Starting Soon - You Gotta Check this Out

Uncategorized

Want a guaranteed way to improve your health, relationships and reduce stress in your life?

Opportunity is knocking and it's asking you to answer the door?  Will you?

If I told you by answering the door, you'll be given a gift that will improve your health (like reducing blood pressure, anxiety level, negative self talk and improve your metabolism), improve your relationships and the ultimate gift, reduces stress (which curiously also leads to having more time) - NOW would you answer?

I was skeptical when I first tried meditation.  I thought it was for "woo-woo" people.  The types who already had balance in their life, therefore a lot of free time - so they needed to fill it with something.  Turns out I held a lot of false beliefs and myths about meditation.

Really though, I was doubtful about whether or not I could do it - actually sit still and clear my mind for 15 minutes.  It seemed so foreign and daunting.  Like asking me to solve a Rubik's cube.

Could this be THE thing that’s thwarting your progress?

Uncategorized

I recently attended Brendon Burchard’s High Performance Academy 4-day live training event in San Diego. What a fantastic experience. It was my second time attending and it was even better than the first.

There were so many “aha” moments and oodles and oodles of wisdom, strategies, practices and methods to create a life filled with joy, health and fulfillment.

Today, I want to share one with you. This nugget is a big one. The impact it can have on your life if you truly internalize it is more like a meteor landing, so buckle up baby!

Brendon answered the perplexing question, what keeps me stuck and unable to reach my goals?

Or phrased another way that I’m sure you can relate to…and because you can relate, how about saying it with me now … “I know what to do, how come I just don't do it?!”

 

He answered it in multiple ways, but here was the big takeaway, boiled down to three magical words:

HONOR THE STRUGGLE

My heart hurts today and here’s why

Uncategorized

I came across the following post on Facebook this past Sunday, posted up by a “friend” and while I know this person, I do not know her well.  In the non-social media world, she’d be what I’d call an acquaintance.  She writes:

Since tomorrow is Monday, I’m going to start eating healthy again and exercising and try to stop smoking.  Tomorrow is a new day, lets hope it goes well for me.”

Oh how that just leapt from the screen at me.  I quickly felt my heart sink into my stomach.  I felt my jaw clench, adrenaline surge and had an overwhelming sense of sadness and empathy for her.

My heart hurts.

Why?  Her words used to be mine.  That hanging on feeling to even the slightest shred of hope; hoping to reclaim health, a former weight and fix what’s wrong used to fill my days.

What was also true back then for me, and I’ll venture to say this is true for this woman now, is that hidden behind with the...

10+ Ways to Improve Your Relationships

Uncategorized

I was fortunate to spend 5 days last week in New York City celebrating my wedding anniversary. The experience got me thinking about relationships in general and how the really good ones light up my life.

Would you agree, that at the core of our human experience, it's the desire to be connected to others in deeply, genuine and authentic ways is what brings the greatest satisfaction and meaning to our lives?

And if that's true (and I believe it is) - I ask myself, what am I doing to improve and deepen the relationships I care about the most?

Also, what makes the really good one's so good? Relationships include a significant other, friend, family member, colleague, or acquaintance and the most important relationship of all in my opinion, the connection between yourself and your spirit.

If I had to pick one thing that I'm working on to improve my relationships it's this - and I steal Oprah's line - 'what I know for sure' is in today's busy-busy world and addiction to digital devices,...

Is Being Grateful for Absolutely Everything Possible?

Uncategorized

I mentioned a couple weeks ago in the blog that I’m reading a really fantastic book with a dear friend of mine (Penache Desai’s “Discovering Your Soul Signature”).  It’s broken down into 33 days of lessons or teachings. 

We’ve taken more than 33 days to read it because there’s just so much rich, juicy goodness within it. 

We text each other back and forth about what it’s teaching us, how it resonates with us and how we can apply the teachings to our own lives so that we can live more fully and with greater ease and serenity.

I digress, the point for today’s blog is to share with you another lesson that has deeply stuck with me, and it happened on Day 21 in the chapter entitled Gratitude.

My friend’s text to me that day is what really hammered it home as she described a life experience she was dealing with and then curiously just decided, hmmm, how about I give this be grateful for EVERYTHING a real...

A Key Reason Trust Leads to Freedom to Live Your Best Life

Uncategorized

I’m reading this great book with a good friend of mine.  We’re book-clubbing it so to speak, that is, in today’s modern form of book-club where we read a chapter a day (ultra short chapters by the way) and then we text each other sometime during the day with our thoughts, reactions, questions, etc.

The book is called Discovering Your Soul Signature” by Penache Desai.  Awesome, awesome read. 

So yesterday’s chapter, or lesson, was Day 23 entitled “Unfolding” and it hit me deeply and thought it may resonate with you too. 

Here’s where it reached out and grabbed me first:

Penache writes: “What if I were to tell you that you can’t mess up this thing called life?”

I’m thinking:  really, come on now, I’ve already messed things up in my life…many, many, MANY times, how can this be?

Within a page, the clever author pulls me back with this thought and question:

“For a...

Are You Defining Getting Healthy Correctly?

Clients I have the privilege to work with routinely have within their set of goals to “get healthier.”   As their Eating Behavior Coach, I teach them how to be more specific and narrowly define it for themselves based on the lifestyle they’re seeking.  This way, they will know once they’ve arrived and achieved their goal. 

This process of getting specific and defining “getting healthier” get really interesting. Uncovering what it uniquely means for an individual is almost always an eye opening and soul exposing exercise.

So play along with me right now.  STOP and think of how you define “getting healthier.”   Be specific and use identifiable measures and terms in your definition. 

Got it summed up in your mind?  Good.  Read on.

Were any of these included in your definition:

1.     Unshakable feeling of comfort and confidence in your own skin

Storytime: How I Caught Myself in Body-Shame

Uncategorized

Something’s been gnawing at me lately and for a bit of time, I wasn’t actually aware of what was really going on, but now I am. By sharing my moment of awareness and how I’m choosing to respond to it, I’m hoping today’s blog helps you too.

So here goes…

As the weather has gotten warmer the last couple months, I’ve been wearing fewer sleeveless shirts. If I did wear a sleeveless shirt, I wore a shrug or wrap over it. The a/c is oppressive in some places so having a little cover up made sense. Or did it?

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good shrug or wrap…kinda my thing and definitely staples in my wardrobe. However, it turns out my recent choices weren’t purely fashion driven.

Here’s how I know. I was in a clothing store two weeks ago when I was perusing a section with really cute summer shirts – all sleeveless. I started to think what I could wear over them and THAT’S WHEN IT HIT ME! I was in body shame,...
