Eating Healthy – It’s Not Magic

My kids are totally into Harry Potter. He waves his wand and BAM, magic happens. It would be so nice if real life was like that. For change to occur in real life you have to put in the work.

You see habits don't have a way of changing with a snap of your fingers, do they? We are not going to magically stop doing the things we have been doing for years because a there is a big black hat that rolls around. Habits are formed one small step at a time. We talk about breaking habits, when what we should talk about is replacing habits.

  • How do we replace sleeping in with getting up and going to the gym?
  • How do replace eating drive-thru instead of having something at the crock pot at home?
  • How do we replace getting 6 hours of sleep a night with 7 or 8?

One teensy-weensy step at a time.

You and I don't have forever on this earth. We owe it to ourselves to make every day count. Monday is just as good a day to start as any other. In fact it's better, because it's today, and today is always the day to start.

So what one small step can you take today to get better?

Here's some suggestions for you.

  • You could try replacing one processed food with an unprocessed one.
  • You could add a new veggie to expand your repertoire.
  • You could stop eating at “80% full” instead of “100% full, but at least I didn’t have dessert!”.

Nobody is going to come busting down your door and making demands.

But we do want to know if we can help you start taking those small steps.

Don't wait for  next Monday or next January 1st 

One teensy-weensy step at a time!

​To Your Best Health,

Coach Nancy
