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...
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.
Lesson 1 on healthy grocery shopping:
The problem isn't that you don't know how to grocery shop, the problem is you are going to the store with no plan!!
I am going to teach you exactly how to make that plan with the Meal Prep Course launching in March, but first, go watch the quick video I made that goes over a few items to keep in your house at all times so you can always throw together a healthy meal.
