Hi, everyone! I am so happy to be back to my regular scheduled posting schedule. I am still debating how I want to move forward with my Foodie Friday topics. Recipes are great, but there are so many other topics that can come under that heading. So, I will be mixing it up a little bit each Friday. I am now up to 88 followers. My goal was to meet the 100 follower threshold by the end of 2019. As I continue with my Integrative Therapies classes, I am learning so much about ways to improve Health that have nothing to do with dieting, pills, or extreme exercise. It seems so much of the Health Coaching world focuses on diets and exercise. I have said before I hate the word diet. We all follow a pattern of eating, a diet is so negative. I am currently studying Guided Imagery, and I can not wait to finish so I can start making some audio Guided Imagery files, for people. Pain, Stress, Weight Loss, Anxiety, and Sleep are just some of the things that can be helped with Guided Imagery. Don’t forget about my Better Sleep live group sessions, starting in just a few weeks. You still have time to get in! It will be fun, I promise. Read about it here. I am optimistic someone will want to join me in that adventure.
Back to this week’s topic. Are you eating for a Chronic Disease? What does that mean? Basically, are you eating in a way that will increase your chance of getting a Chronic Disease, or already have one and still not eating in a way to help your Chronic Disease. Maybe you need to learn how to meal prep, especially for busy work or school days. I know those are my hardest days to stick to my healthy choices. I am tired, and just want something easy. So, you might turn to fast food, eating out, frozen meals, canned foods, or other highly processed foods, that are convenient but not very healthy. Maybe you think you can’t afford healthier food options. That of course is not true, and I can attest to that as well. It does take a little more planning, and thought, but it is completely possible. Maybe you have no clue how to cook. Cooking can actually be therapeutic in itself, and a complete joy. I actually very much enjoy cooking, it is the clean up I hate. I can also attest to the fact in FL, in Summer it is sweaty and stinky, making the thought of cooking daunting. There are ways around that too. If any of those things describe you, and you want to work with a Health Coach to help you meet your Chronic Disease goals, use the contact form below to message me. Your initial meeting is free, and there is no obligation to work with me after the initial meeting. To see all of my available plans, click here.
