Coach Lisa here!
As you have probably heard us mention here, this is the PRIME quitting time. What better way to combat that, than entering a six-week challenge? For the next 6 Friday's, I'll be posting healthy habits leading you to greater weight-loss. No crazy diets, purges, or planks. Just tips and tricks to get better use out of this season! First up, is maybe the cornerstone of a weight-loss journey! Now, in all honesty, if you're reading this then you may have this habit checked. Although, the hardest thing about habits? That they're habits! It's often said that it takes 21 days to make a habit and 90 days for it to become a permanent lifestyle change! Are you ready to get started changing things for real for life?
This six week course is intended to help you develop a new skill set around food, leading to greater weight loss and more success around the holidays. We're going to start with some basic awareness skills...this is the backbone to success with Mindfulness. For now, just focus on this 1 habit this week. You don't have to change anything else.The fact that you're here, reading this is step one- but step two is turning this moment into a habit.
HEALTHY HABIT #1 - AWARENESS
Many of us eat while we are distracted - driving our cars, chasing kids, grabbing a drive by munch out of the bag or off the counter. Sometimes we grab something and quickly eat it over the sink at lunch or nibble out of the fridge. We sit down to unwind in front of the TV and find our way to the bottom of that bag of popcorn without even realizing it.
Did you know mindless eating can account for up to 15 lbs of weight gain for the average person in a year?
This week we are going to start breaking this habit. By making one simple change, you can begin to break patterns. Nighttime snacking and overeating are holding you back from seeing success in your weight-loss journey.
Start here with this video.
WEEK 1 - CHALLENGE 1
NO MORE DRIVE BY EATING! This includes finishing your kids plate, eating standing up, eating in the car or in front of the TV.
