There are so many incredible ways to empower yourself to live a healthier life:
Use this time to better yourself, rather than waste it. You got this!
I remember when I was first getting started as a business owner. I couldn’t wait to get through the problems I was experiencing to the other side where they would no longer burden me.
Some of those issues took me over a year to work through: fear of getting started, worry over quitting my job, anxiety that no one would like my product.
When I got to the other side of those issues though, there was only momentary relief, and then....more problems to work through! More fear, worry, anxiety, doubt.
The grass is never greener my friends! Do things in your life because they are important to you, not because you think they will magically make your life better.
This is something I’m carrying with me as I lose weight, too. I’m not doing it because I think a thinner body will magically give me confidence or make me happier. I’m doing it for me; because it’s a challenge I want to work through, because it will make me grow and evolve in ways that sitting on the...
To have health in your life, you have to be proactive. You have to take control and make changes.
One of the most powerful changes you can make is having healthy homemade food in your fridge every day.
This could mean you need to learn to cook. If you already cook, it means empowering yourself to learn how to do it quickly, efficiently, without spending extra money. Learning how to break it down into a process, instead of a haphazard thing you are forced to do each week in order to eat.
Healthy doesn’t have to be a challenge, it really can be simple and easy when you learn from a pro!

My first job out of college was as a Nutrition Educator. I would go out and speak to groups of people, explaining the impact of diet on health. I would talk about the benefits of cooking at home, how it could help you prevent lifestyle diseases.
Mostly what I got in return was a lot of questions; "How do you cook healthy?", "How do you find the time to cook?", "What do you do if you get all your meals from a drive through or the gas station?". A lot of questions I didn't have great answers for. I knew I wanted to impact the health of our nation in a significant way, but I just couldn't see how my nutrition lectures were helping....at all.
So, I started cooking healthy meals for people and taking them to their home. No time to grocery shop? I'll deliver your meals. Don't know how to cook? I will do it all for you, all you have to do is heat and eat. Find yourself at the drive through too much? I will literally take it to your house thus saving you a trip to the drive through!!
When I decided at the beginning of January to lose 10lbs, and committed to doing it by taking a look at my habits and making real changes, I honestly thought it would be an easy journey.
Heck, when the first week I lost almost half of the weight I planned to! Not to mention, I am the FOUNDER of a healthy meal service- I have access to healthy balanced meals!
But, it wasn't about the healthy meals I was eating, it was about the times I was eating and wasn't actually hungry and the "why" behind that. When you start digging into that, you start discovering yourself (which is crazy because I thought I already had).
It's different for everyone, but for me I am facing up to the uncomfortable moments of life without a snack to keep me company. It felt impossible before, but now it feels liberating!
"I am sick and tired of getting home from work and ordering another pizza. Help!"
This is a comment I hear A LOT!! After a long day at work, who wants to cook? Not me! However, your only option also is not a pizza. What you really need to do is have some forethought about your week and make a plan.
Make a plan by:
A. Before you do anything, watch the video I made for you which details 5 items to keep in your house that will yield hundreds of easy meals! Click, 5 Must-Have Ingredients to watch! It is SO helpful!
B. Set aside some time to grocery shop and meal prep.
C. Try a meal delivery service like Basically It Meals!! It can be a lifesaver in these situations (coming from experience).
D. You may also want to look into meal guides to help you out! I have a great one for you to try, done for you meal guide.
