Day 1 of the 5 Day Change Challenge. Weight Loss and Healthy Eating

Making changes to our lives can be challenging. 95% of our brain's function is subconscious. Our brains like to be efficient and do the same thing over and over again. This is great when it comes to brushing our teeth, but not so great if that habit is "eat cake when I'm stressed."

The good news is that we can re-write our habits so that they serve us!

Day 1 of the 5 Challenge. The Problem

Sheena writes:

"It’s not so much the weight as the feeling fabulous - or not.

I am going on holiday in 12 weeks. I am fat and I certainly don’t feel fabulous! I’m not obese but my belly is a lot more round than I like.

It’s momentum really. I am pretty sure I’ll lose a decent amount of weight before our holiday but getting started is hard and so is keeping going - especially once the big event is over. There’s a good chance I’ll be chubby again next spring lol"

This is such a great question and brings up lots of points to chat about.

Healthy Eating Over the Holidays. Getting the Balance Right.

Looking forward to Thanksgiving and all the festivities in December?
 
It can be so easy to get carried away and eat and drink too much.
 
But...you still want to have fun and celebrate life. And food and drink is part of that celebration.

Here are 8 tips to keep you on track:
1. Think portion sizes.
2. Eat lots of VEGGIES
3. Hunger. Be aware of hunger and don't put yourself into a situation where you'll be really hungry with loads of treats around.
4. Plan ahead.
5. Be mindful of alcohol (and the evil little "drink more!" voice.)
6. Have family fun exercises (go for a walk or a bike ride).
7. Get back on track.
8. Use it as a chance to observe yourself.

Mindful eating can really help you enjoy the holidays without going overboard.
 
Next week we'll talk more about hunger and mindful eating.

What is Mindful Eating and How Does It Help me Lose Weight?

It's so easy to eat when we aren't actually hungry. Perhaps you're bored, stressed or upset. 

Our emotions play a big part in eating which leads us to eat more food that our bodies actually need.

In this FB LIVE, I explain exactly what "mindful eating" is. (As opposed to "mindless eating").

Why mindful eating is great if you want to lose weight.

And how to start your mindful eating journey.

It Takes Time to Learn Mindful Eating. Be Kind to Yourself.

Please remember that mindful eating is a learnt behaviour. Think of it like learning to play the piano.

You couldn't beat yourself up if you weren't a concert pianist overnight so don't expect to be "perfect" at it straight away.

Learn to observe yourself from a place of kindness. No guilt! The first step is just to figure out what's going on!
