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!
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...
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...
We are all meal prepping right now because that is one of the few options we have!!
It might feel like you're missing something, or you're not doing it right.....there really is a process behind the madness!
If you're struggling, my first suggestion would be to plan ahead!
My second suggestion is try The Meal Prep Course! I break down the full process, walk you through step by step, and then we get to cooking in the kitchen together! It is really incredible.
