You just want someone to tell you what to do sometimes...
I get it! I do. If you've been reading my blogs for a while now, then you know that I believe in the, "If you bring a woman a fish, she'll eat for a day. If you teach a woman to fish, she'll eat for a lifetime" approach. (That was paraphrased with a creative twist). ;-)
However, I do really know what it's like to sometimes just want someone tell you what to do. When it's a week before a big holiday and 2 weeks before another big holiday and there's so much to do and what seems like an unlimited amount of parties with food and alcohol...
It can be hard to stay focused. It can be tricky to remember how to fish for yourself.
Today I'm sharing with you 2 things to eliminate (or greatly reduce) from your plate that will bring you near-immediate progress. These tips are NOT easy - especially this time of year. So, you get to choose when to use them. Save these tools in your tool belt for the day after a particularly fun party. :-) Or, start immediately so you can get a bit of traction and energy before all of these events. It's up to you!
The video is below. If you don't have time to watch or listen to the video for all of the details, here's the cliff notes:
1. Refined sugar
2. Refined flour
They are not doing you any favors for your health. If they are soul food for you - as in, your soul is happy when you eat them - then by all means, keep some of it in! But, choose intentionally. Be picky. Save it for special foods and special occasions. Watch how much better you feel when you do that!
In good health and holiday cheer,
P.S. 2019 is coming! It's our year and we're coming for it. One of the things that I do to give me a leg-up is keep my healthy habits in place. If working out consistently or eating properly for my body type and goals weren't a habit, I wouldn't be able to accomplish a whole lot, to be honest. This took some time for me to establish. And then, I had to figure it all out again post-babies. Things change. But, the fact that I need my health, energy, and confidence in order to go after my dreams has never changed. If you are looking to improve your health, energy, and/or confidence in the New Year so you can crush your goals…and your life, then I think you should! That's where the magic is.
I coach women through this transformation through nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle changes that bring great health, energy, confidence…and JOY! Let me know (email me at Tara@TaraAllenHealth.com) if you are interested in chatting (free of charge) to discuss what some of your goals are.*
