YOU WANT TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH?
HERE'S HOW TO BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY!
Take a moment. Do it for YOU!
Make the decision. I losing weight what you really want or do you want to feel great, have more energy, have clear skin, etc?
Make a plan. Yes, I'm talking meal and fitness plan, but I'm also taking on HOW to fit it into your busy schedule.
Once you've made your plan, schedule it! Yes, write it in your planner or set a reminder on your phone. It's a date with yourself, don't cancel!
Start slow! No need to throw everything out (or eat everything because tomorrow begins the restrictive diet). Plan on making 1-2 changes per week.
- Find recipes on Pinterest to incorporate more veggies into your diet. (follow my recipe board HERE)
- Add flavour to your water to make it more fun and yummy.
The idea is to always think of what you can ADD to your diet instead of what you should cut out.
Today's homework: Take 10-15 minutes. Decide, Plan & Schedule.

Now that you are ready to begin slowly -
I want to remind you that this is a marathon, not a sprint. Quick fixes are just that..QUICK. They don't set the foundation for a long & healthy life.
Of course, this journey might get a bit bumpy. The best way to be ready is to have a food journal.
I know what you're thinking: "Ya, ya! I know what I eat and what I do. I don't need to write it down!"
But you do!
All of a sudden, you are:
- super bloated
- have weird poops
- are breaking out
Your food journal will help you pinpoint the possible troubles.
- Too much fiber and not enough water?
- Loads of veggies when you never touched one before?
- Unbalanced meals?
This is not to say that something will go wrong, but in case it does, you'll have backup!
Health is a journey because it is filled with learning curves.
By keeping a journal, you'll be able to record how your body reacts. This will help you to get to know your body and trust that your body knows what it's doing.
Diet programs don't know your body like you do.
It's time that you begin your trust yourself!
If it feels good, DO IT! If it doesn't, STOP! Easy!
Today's homework: Get & begin your food journal. Write down what you eat and how it makes you feel physically.

Thank you so much for being here!
I hope I didn't scare you too much with my last video. I wanted to be honest with you. When we make changes our mind will quickly try to get us to stop and go back to where it's comfortable. That's why, by starting slow, by the time your mind notices something's happening - it has already happened!
Now that you have made this decision for YOU and began to track how your body feels, I want to talk about self-love & mindset.
''Umm, what does this have to do with it?'' you might think.
Right now, I want you to place your hands over your heart. Breathe in. Breathe out. Feel that?
That is your body loving you so much, it's keeping you alive. You don't even need to think about it. Your body breathes, digests & pumps blood while you are busy living your life!
Let that sink in for a minute!
Talk about mindset shift, right?
It's not about fighting your body to lose weight...it's about loving your body so much you will do anything to let it know that. Food that will help you out, daily movement that will help your body get stronger and meditation that will calm your mind and body.
This is all about LOVE!
Love for yourself and your incredible body!
