A Message from Your Balanced Habits™ Team

Fall has officially arrived and so has cooler weather, fall sports and busier days. To keep yourself feeling centered, calm and confident with your health and weight goals, being prepared has never been more important.  Having an abundance of foods prepped for a quick meal or snack can be the difference between having lots of energy and supporting your goals or “bonking” and making a bad decision you’ll surely regret.

Balanced habits are important to establish.  When you identify unbalanced habits you’re ready to correct, be sure to create the balanced habit to replace it.  Just saying “I’m going to start drinking more water” is not really a commitment to getting balanced.  Instead, say; “I’m going to only have coffee in the AM hours and enjoy water for all the PM hours.”  Unbalanced habit → balanced habit replacement = healthy new, balanced habit = ☺

Focus on things you can do to prepare your kitchen, such as

1.  Clean your oven before the holidays hit

2.  Pull together some new recipes you want to try during the holidays

3.  Toss spices you haven’t used in 6-12 months

4.  Toss oils and vinegars you haven’t used in 3-6 months

5.  Make a list on your phone of all unused cans, bottles & jars you have in your pantry

As you close out 2021, take a few minutes to write down goals you set for yourself for the year. Put a star beside the ones you surpassed. Pick out three of those you did not, and decide what you can do in these last three months of the year to reach them. PLEASE use language with yourself that is positive and empowering. Count your wins instead of focusing on the targets you didn’t hit. One goal per each of the final months in 2021. You’ve got this!!
