Today, I acknowledge and applaud you for your commitment to consistency.
Whether you consistently make a conscious effort to consume more vegetables for dinner, walk everyday for 10 minutes, or drink your water, you are AWESOME!
I know you are committed, because you share your stories with me–on my Inkwell Healthy Lifestyles Facebook page, via email, or 1:1 conversation. You are making changes that improve your health, well-being, and happiness!
I know it’s not easy. The road to wellness takes patience, perseverance, and a deep desire to make changes that feel really hard some days.
And we are always learning.
Last week I attended a class at Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience in Highland, IN. The title of the class was “Eating for Awesome Energy.” The topic presented was not new for me, yet I learned LOTS of new information to help me on my health journey. Oh, and some very yummy recipes!
For example, do you know how to choose the very best vegetables?
Say you have two heads of cauliflower. (I know, not my favorite. I keep on trying…) One may be larger than the other and both look similar in appearance. Choose the heavier one. Why? It contains more water, which makes for a tastier head of cauliflower. This is true for all vegetables, since they are made up mostly of water. Lighter ones contain less water, and will not be as tasty. Same rule applies for melons, etc.
The moral of the story: by taking ANY of Mrs. Dornberg’s classes, you will learn things that are new. One of the best ways to improve the health of you and your family is to get into the habit of cooking more meals. Learning from Mrs. Dornberg is a great way to go.
I don’t mean to rush time, however we are only 3 months out from Christmas. If you are already dreading the “holiday five, ten, or fifteen” pounds that seem to appear by the New Year, I can help.
Email me and we’ll have a conversation to set up a plan to keep you on track. It is very possible to enjoy the holiday season without feeling bad. It’s simply a matter of understanding what works best for you, along with committed consistency.
Together, we can do this!
