A lot of times the thought of change can be paralyzing...
So many things that could NOT go right...
Often times that thinking leaves us paralyzed.
BUT....what are you missing out on by not taking action?
Where is your life sitting still?
I see this with health all the time.
My clients are scared to get the tools they need to help them move forward because they're worried about what could go wrong, instead of focusing what could go right!
So, when you give yourself the tools you need what do you think could go right?
Here are all the things I see go right for my clients:
~ You learn something new
~ You have fun
~ You get your family involved in learning a new skill
~ You lose weight
~ You have a healthy lunch ready to go for you
~ You start saving money because you invested in yourself!
~ You have a few extra hours in the evenings you didn't have before
Let's find out what could go right for you when you invest in yourself!

If you have tried to clean up your diet before and failed, it’s because you weren’t specific enough!
I see so many people go down this path- they decide they want to eat better, maybe choose a recipe or two, hit the grocery store and by day three they are back to pizza for dinner and feeling super guilty about it.
There is no shame there, my friend!
Here’s how you can prevent that next time: make a list of the foods that will make up 90% of your diet, and then plan ahead for when you’ll be having the indulgent 10%.
What foods make you feel best? Write them all down. Now find recipes that include those foods and do your meal prepping.
This simple process cuts down on temptation SO MUCH!
It makes a diet change really easy. Don’t leave it to chance or for you to make a healthy decision in t moment- that never works! This process does work.

Five years ago, before I was a business owner, before I ever had a business idea, I was on a business trip for my corporate job.
I had been tasked with attending a medical conference in Washington DC.
One evening, the conference put on a happy hour for all the conference attendees.
I was hanging out with my coworkers when a man approached me.
He told me there was a medium at who had seen me and wanted to speak with me.
At first, we thought it was a very odd pick up line, but I was curious, so I went with him to a woman seated at the bar.
She was a completely normal looking 40-something year old dressed in business casuals.
I asked if she was in attendance as a psychic. She said no, she was there working, but she was a medium and did readings on the side.
"I noticed you over there and I felt really compelled to speak with you," she said.
I was shocked.
"You're going to do great things and help a lot of people."
And then she said the most important thing of all:
Who else is a Self-Help junkie?
I have been hooked since I was young. I was watching an Oprah show after school and it was centered around the topic and I just knew I wanted more.
The idea of "improving myself" like you would make updates to your home (weird analogy? ) was so fascinating to me.
I don't know when I bought my first self-help book was, but I now have a collection of them by my bed.
But for me, self-help isn't limited to that book collection. It shows up all over my life- like my obsessive journaling and my endless quest to be the healthiest I can be.
The one area of self-help I feel I have definitely mastered is meal prep.
This is also the area I have seen THE MOST impact on my life and my clients lives.
When it comes to losing weight, feeling confident, removing temptation, having freedom at meal times, having more time and saving money- learning to meal prep will instantly and seamlessly give you all of them.
It won't take years or months to see change in your life, it...
Change can be scary, it can be hard.
Losing the weight or starting a new diet can feel like you are losing yourself and your identity.
And that is actually what is happening; you are getting rid of your old identity and building a new one!
You are brave for making a change, it is not easy!!
The faster you can believe in yourself to be that new person, the less painful that change will be.
Let’s get clear together on whom the new you is…..
What do you think and feel as a thinner, healthier you?
What tools do you need to become the new you?
Write all of that down and move forward from there and you will see how FAST and SIMPLE change is!
I would love to be a part of your journey and help you become the new you!! Join The Meal Prep Course and let’s do this together!
A client reached out to me the other day.
She said, “my family just does not support my new way of eating. Making this shift is so hard sometimes I don’t know why I am doing it.”
I told her the only support she really needs is her own!
The people in your life probably won't support you making a change at first.
They only know the old you, not the new you!
But you know the new you, you believe in that person and your ability to become that person... And that is what’s really important.
I asked her “what else can you feel in those moments when you see your family not support your new diet?"
How about pride in yourself for making the change that most will never dare to do?
What about self-love because you are doing something awesome for yourself?
What about gratitude for your family that loves you?
Those are all feelings to try on when you are feeling the challenge, when you are feeling down.
You can do this!
I am so proud of you for just getting started.
STOP FOR A SECOND.
When was the last time you paused and took a look at how far you have come?
How much you have grown since last year, how much weight you have lost, how many dietary changes you've made, how much more mature you are than yesterday ().
This plate pictured here is the sign I made for the original Basically It Meals before it was Basically It Meals.
4 years ago, it was called "The $6 Lunch". I would bulk batch my own meal prep and then take it to work each week and sell it to my coworkers. I hung this plate up at my cubicle to let them know when I had a batch to sell.
That is how far I've come.....from $6 lunch offered to coworkers, to full time business owner, to online course purveyor, to producer and TV personality.
We are all capable of INCREDIBLE CHANGE but so often we are stuck in "I haven't done enough", "I am not enough", "I will never get there".
So, stop for just one second today and give yourself a pat on the back for all the BAD ASS work you have put in!
I am so...
In the last 3 months, I have:
I spoke with an awesome group of people in a weight loss program the other night.
These people are making HUGE dietary shifts.
Something most of us will talk about, dream about, but never quite stick to.
These people were truly inspiring.
They wanted to know how to make the transition easier, less painful.
They wanted to know how to stick with it for years to come.
I told them this kind of change takes some planning. When we leave decisions food decisions until we are hungry, our brain is not capable of making a conscious decision.
When we're hungry we switch to survival mode, and we will eat the most calorie dense thing we can get our hands on.
We have to make those decisions ahead of time. Make them when we are in a clear-headed place with our end result in mind.
When we can do that, success is inevitable.
And the best way to do that is by meal prepping.
Your week is planned ahead, all your food decisions are made, and that way when you are hungry and tired and you open that fridge...
When I was getting my nutrition degree, I was sucked into a common belief: that American's health is failing not by choice, but by force.
This attitude bleeds into our culture and tells everyone "You can play the blame game, too".
I spent many years being angry at fast food, being angry at big AG, being angry with the food companies hiring chemists to manufacture foods that could hijack our taste buds.
How could they do this to unsuspecting, innocent American's and steal their health?
I felt powerless. I imagine you have felt this way, too.
There is nothing I can do to save our health.
But then I began to realize, my health is in my hands.
Your health is in your hands.
America's health does not lie with big AG or in a factory farm. It lies with each individual American.
YOU are the only one with the power to get healthier or sicker.
And that is not me BLAMING you, that is me EMPOWERING you.
You have a choice; and there are actually quite a few out there.
