HO, HO, HO! Merrrrry Christm…..
Wait, that’s over now….
Did Christmas seem like it flew by for you? Because it definitely did for me!
Good news is no more holiday excuses to not get back on track 😉 So ditch the eggnog, finish up the last of the stuffing, and plan on having sparkling water for your New Year celebration! We’re getting back to the grind today!
The most important thing I can think of when it comes to getting back on track is setting goals and visualizing them.
Where do you want to be and where do you see yourself? Do you see yourself running a marathon, fitting into your “skinny” jeans? Maybe you want to have regular digestion and reduce the “puffy” feeling you have?
Whatever you goal may be, visualize it and write down some broad steps to get to that end goal.
From there, make things more specific, in a way that you can make them daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly goals.
For example: My goal is to reduce the bloating/inflammation I’ve had from eating foods that sometimes aggravate my immune system (because I have Celiac’s Disease). I’d like to see that happen within the next 6-8 weeks. This week I’m going to increase my water intake and eliminate dairy entirely (even grass-fed). Next week, I’m going to maintain those goals as well as increase my bone broth and veggie consumption. And continue building upon those as the weeks come. When times get tough and allllll I want is that cheese to top off a meal, I’ll remember what I want MORE…and that’s to calm my immune system down and strengthen my digestion.
At the bottom of each of my client’s nutritional recommendations, I have them choose a word and write it down on their sheet. I encourage them that when times get rough and they want to break away from the nutritional journey, to remember that word. To let it resonate in their minds and all the way to their hearts. In the time it takes you to think of that word, usually the urge to splurge will pass and your focus on the end goal is crisp and clear.
So you, the one reading this, think of a word for your goals and answer the following question:
where do you want to be and how are you going to get there?
I like to think that I’m an honest person.
The truth is, when I sat down to write this blog, I intended on writing about the importance of ginger and lemon juice and bone broth and other tips and tricks for getting started/rebooted after a holiday of splurging. But what came through was my heart.
I have such a passion to help others. I want to see you reach your goals so bad that it hurts! If I could take each of my nutritional therapy client’s hands and hold them each day, walking through the trials of nutrition and the temptation of food, I would.
I want you to want this. I want you to want a more natural, nutritional lifestyle. I want you to know what it feels like to feel good. To feel better. To reach your goals and climb to the mountaintops.
If you want it for you, keep pushing forward. You’ll make it. You just have to believe in yourself and you absolutely CANNOT give up.
I hope you all had a beautiful holiday season. This time of year is my favorite because it’s so energetic and full of hope and dreams. Chase your dreams and be filled with hope. And stay away from sugar….always stay away from sugar 😉
