Good Nutrition is the Best Holiday Gift

If you are like many of my clients, you let your nutritional and fitness goals lapse during the holiday season. If I had a dollar for every time I heard, “I’ll get back on track (or start) after the holidays,” I wouldn’t need to work.

But the fact of the matter is, the holidays are the perfect time to start practicing good nutritional habits. Even a few small modifications to your diet (think eating slowly and eating to 80% full as opposed to stop eating carbs) can help you maintain your weight and health through the holidays and prepare you for a bigger commitment when the new year starts. For more on this topic check out this earlier post, Build a Foundation for a Healthy New Year.

Hiring a nutritional coach is the best way to get started on building healthy nutritional habits through the holidays. A coach can help you create a set of habits tailored to your specific challenges and offer support and guidance along the way.

Because I know the holidays bring additional expenses, I am offering my self guided nutritional plan for $55/per month! That’s a $10 discount. This special price is available for a limited time only. The price will go up January 1st, 2019! Typically this plan is self guided with no coaching feedback, however as a special bonus, I am including personalized biweekly messages for feedback and support to help keep you on track and ensure you get the best results possible.

This holiday season give yourself a gift and invest in your health. When your are healthy, happy, and feeling great your family, friends, and coworkers benefit too! It is the gift that keeps on giving to EVERYONE!

Remember, this offer only lasts through 2018, starting January 1,2019 the cost of the program goes up and the personal messages go away. Subscribe now, to get started! You will be glad you did!

Create Your Monthly Action Plan

As we head into the busy holiday season, it can be easy to lose track of your goals.

Take some time over the next few days to create a plan of action of steps you can take to move in the direction of your goals this month. They do not need to be big steps, often baby steps are the best way to get closer to your goals.

Good luck and have fun!

Reach Your Goals with Nutritional Coaching

What is nutritional coaching?

Nutritional coaching is a method of teaching clients how build healthy nutritional habits that will last a lifetime. In addition, a nutritional coach offers the support, guidance and motivation clients need to successfully achieve their health and wellness goals.

Why do I need a nutritional coach?

The goal of nutritional coaching is to assess your current nutritional and dietary situation and determine the next step in becoming a little better by introducing new habits and making small achievable changes that over time yield measurable results.

Nutritional coaching is for people who want to lose weight and body fat, build physical strength, confidence, and get lasting maintainable results. With nutritional coaching you can stop dieting, learn to eat better, and have more energy and stamina.

How does it work?

The nutritional coaching process is done over a series sessions:

-First session/consultation (15 minutes) – Meet client, determine goals, give them assessment forms to fill out

-2nd session (50 minutes) – Review forms, take measurements, clarify goals.

-3rd session forward – Take measurements, review adherence, address challenges, revise plan as necessary.

Beginning with the 3rd session, clients meet with their coach regularly, every 3 weeks either through messenger or via video chat, to measure results, discuss progress, identify challenges, and collaborate on what steps to take next. In addition, clients will receive daily lessons designed to teach them how to live a healthy, balanced life.

Nutritional coaching is the BEST way to receive the support and guidance you need to achieve your health and wellness goals: losing weight, increased energy, improved sport performance, better health markers, etc. I’m not going to lie, the nutritional coaching process does require you to put in some work, about 10-15 minutes each day, to review the lessons and practice your habits, but if you are committed to achieving your best possible health finding the time is easy (and the lessons are kind of fun).

Right now I am offering a complimentary 15 minute consultation to see if you are a candidate for Achieve Wellness’ Nutritional Coaching program. To schedule your session, email us at achievewellness@ymail.com, send us a message through our Facebook page, or if you are ready to get started visit our website to sign up and begin building your healthy habits!

Take Action Today

Take a minute right now to think about 1 of your goals. It can be a weight loss goal, fitness goal, financial goal, relationship goal, or a bucket list goal.

Now, think about 1 thing you can do today to move a little closer to achieving that goal. It does not have to be a big leap or take a lot of time (unless you are motivated to do so), remember it is the little things we do that move us down the path to success.

For example, if your goal is to lose a few pounds then perhaps you spend some time today preparing meals for the week so you have easy access to healthy meals that support your weight loss.

If your goal is to find your soulmate go to a local coffee shop and hang out for 15-20 minutes. Read a book, write in your journal about what you want you soulmate to be like, stay present and mindful of those around you, smile and look approachable. You never know who you will meet. It may not be your soulmate, but it could be the person, who knows the person, who is your soulmate.

The point is to invest some time today in making your goal a reality. Taking an action, any action, is the only way to make progress.

What action are you going to take today? Inspire others by writing it in the comments below.

Get Specific

A few weeks ago, I was working in a group of fellow manifestors and I posed this fill-in the blank statement:

Today I intend to powerfully and successfully manifest________________________________.

Answers ranged from a new job, a car, a dream home, peace on earth, good health and the most common, financial abundance.

Now, theses are all great answers, but it got me thinking, “What IS financial abundance?” Or “What exactly does good health mean?” The answer to these questions is likely different for each person that completed my original statement. It occurred to me with all of these vague answers how is the Universe supposed to know what to deliver to you?

For example, you say, “I want to manifest a new job.” So, the Universe sends you a job, at a fast food restaurant. Not exactly what you intended. Then you end up frustrated because you got a job, but it isn’t what you wanted or dreamt. And the Universe says, “Hey, you said a new job you didn’t give me specifics! Don’t be picky”

Ok, maybe the Universe leaves out the “picky” part.

The point is, often we ask the Universe for something we want, but we are so vague and wish-washy about it that the Universe is left in limbo trying to figure out what we want it to deliver us.

The best way to resolve this miscommunication, is to get REALLY specific about what you want the Universe to deliver to you, put in every detail you can think of: how does it feel, what does it look like, smell like, where are you, who is with you, when is it taking place, how much? Keeping adding as new details occur to you.

Here’s an example:

Hello Universe, I would like a new career that allows me to work anywhere I choose in the world and on my own time schedule. I prefer to work alone or with a group of 3-4 people who share my ideas and passions. I want to use my skills in life coaching to help people achieve their goals and live their best life. I want to receive $15,000 every month in income so that I can travel, donate to my favorite charities, and start my own arts endowment.

Even though you get specific about what you want, DO NOT get too attached to the outcome. You have given the Universe a blueprint to work from, but as in any development process alterations may need to be made for the plans to work out in the fastest, easiest, most beneficial way.

After all if you ask for $1,000,000 and you get $3,000,000 will you be disappointed? Probably not!

I am a fan of adding, “This or something better”, to the end of my manifest requests just to let the Universe know I am open to a variety of options and solutions.

So, the next time you choose to manifest anything: a new car, great health, your soul mate, a nice dinner, or anything else make sure you help the Universe bring it into your reality by giving it a roadmap to follow and allowing the Universe to take a few detours to make the journey more fun and exciting!

Healthy Finances, Healthy Body

I know it may seem odd to talk about finances on a blog predominately dedicated to health and wellness, but our financial situation can directly contribute to our physical health and well being.

Money is a major source of stress for many people and that stress adversely affects our physical body and our mental state. Constant stress causes us to be in, “fight or flight” mode, which can cause hypertension, cardiovascular disease, a weakened immune system, poor sleep, diabetes, and weight gain.

In addition, healthy eating habits can be difficult or impossible to maintain if you do not have the financial resources to buy nutritional foods, like vegetables, fruits, and lean meat/protein. Let’s face it, eating healthy can be much more expensive than grabbing something from a fast food restaurant.

As a result of these 2 factors, I believe it is critical to spend some time addressing our financial health along with our physical, mental, and spiritual health. We truly can’t have one without the others.

So this week I would like to introduce you to a little exercise that will help you begin to get your financial health tuned up.

Just as you can’t have a healthy body if you fill it with junk food, or a healthy mind if you are focusing on negative thoughts, you can’t have cluttered financial space. What I mean is, if your money/credit cards/checkbook are stuffed into your purse or briefcase with assorted receipts, dried up pens, and old gum wrappers your are not creating a healthy environment for your finances. The same holds true for the loose change floating around your car, couch, etc.

  • Today or over the weekend, take some time to clean out your purse/briefcase, wallet.
    1. Throw out all of the trash
      Organize and file any receipts.
      Line up all of your cash by denomination.
      Sort out gift cards and credit cards and place them in slots.
      Collect and wrap all loose change, cash it in at the bank, or take it to a spare change kiosk. Either deposit the change into your savings account or put it on a gift card. Do the same thing for spare change in your car and around the house.
      Go through other purses, wallets, coat pockets, and anywhere else money may be hiding and collect any forgotten currency.

    By cleaning out, organizing, and nurturing the financial resources directly in your hands you tell your higher power you are ready to be responsible for more money and you open up space for more money to follow in.

    Once you have cleared out and organized your money, you will probably be a little bit richer, and you will be amazed at how much better you feel about your finances and feeling better about money can mean feeling better about your mind and body!

    Feel free to share your experiences below and have a happy, healthy day!
