Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

Do you get scared to step on the scale every time the holidays come around? You’re not alone! Did you realize that 40% of American females are on a “diet” all of the time, not just through the holidays? Come on y’all, there’s more to life than being on a “diet” all year round. Or perhaps just all year except the holidays. You CAN stop this yo-yo dieting. You CAN keep this weight off for good. You CAN enjoy all your favorite treats. You DO NOT have to diet. Let me tell you how you can avoid holiday weight gain. Maybe you’ll even lose weight this holiday season!

I just started a group called Healthy for the Holidays to help all of y’all avoid holiday weight gain this year. I lost 60 lbs a few years ago & have kept it off since then. I am PASSIONATE about showing you that it doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s an enjoyable life to live. You CAN avoid holiday weight gain this year with my help.
I’m absolutely LOVING the Healthy for the Holidays group so far!! The group is already making new friends & opening up to each other, it’s so much fun seeing this interaction!
My favorite part about what I do is that I absolutely LOVE who I get to work with – they’ve become some of my closest friends! I’ve never had such a large support group & community that helps hold me accountable & keeps me motivated. Plus who doesn’t want to be surrounded with positive like minded people? icon smile Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
I’ve decided to make this group an open enrollment – that means you can get in at ANY time! I want to help as many people as I can, continue building relationships, & helping transform lives like I know God has called me to do.
This doesn’t have to be you anymore (PS – this has been me SOO many times)….

How to Renew Your Life

how to renew body mind soul How to Renew Your Life

Renewal is something that we typically think of around New Year’s or maybe even Spring, when Summer is quickly approaching. For so many years, I could care less about taking care of my health, body, mind, or soul. I was far away from God, overweight, depressed, & in a dark place. What I’ve learned is that it all starts with your MIND. Once you overcome your mind, you can overcome anything.The body, mind, & soul all work together. I know that can seem very difficult, believe me. I still struggle with it myself sometimes, even after losing 60 lbs & maintaining that the past 4 years. But, I want to show you that you CAN & just how to renew your  life.

When I began my weight loss journey, I had a lot of trouble getting my mind right about it. I tried so many things & continued failing. Then one day I finally figured out what my WHY was – what  made me want to get healthy – & that pushed me along. It started in the mind. I learned how to better control my mind. This was just the beginning of my journey & I’ve figured out so much since then about how they all connect, so I want to share it with all of you. I want to show you how to renew your life.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard me talking about my Healthy for the Holidays group that starts next Monday. I’m very excited about helping people take control of their mind & their life. I  lived so much of my life in fear & depression. Now that I’ve been released from that, I want to help you all break those chains of bondage that we are not meant to live in. God has a bigger plan for your life, you don’t have to feel this way any more.

This group will last from October-March so that I can help you get through the holidays without gaining any weight, but still enjoying yourself & lots of yummy foods. But, you will not just be learning about health & fitness. I am going to help you gain a new perspective on life, have a fresh start, & show you how to renew your life.

So, I wanted to give you a sneak peak at what we will be discussing during the 6 months of the program so you’ll know what to expect.

9 Ways to Flatten Your Belly this Week

flatten your belly 9 Ways to Flatten Your Belly this Week

Who doesn’t want to beat their belly boat & flatten their belly? I know my tummy has always been struggle area, even after losing 60 lbs. Lately I’ve learned a lot about food & have been figuring out what makes me bloated & what doesn’t & how to flatten my belly. So, I want to share my tips with you of 9 ways to flatten your belly this week.

  1. Season your food differently. Taking in too much salt can cause your body to retain water. Make sure you’re using salt-free seasonings like Mrs. Dash or fresh herbs. Also make sure to ditch anything processed or frozen that’s microwaveable because they pack on the sodium as well.
  2. Cut back on carbs. Cutting back on carbs like bagels & pasta can cause your body to eliminate excess stored fluids. Have eggs for breakfast, try open-faced sandwiches, & have snacks like turkey slices, seeds, & nuts.
  3. Switch your starch. Instead of potatoes, corn, or wheat sub out for brown rice. This is the only starch that doesn’t cause gas.
  4. Eliminate milk. You may be lactose intolerant if you feel gassy or bloated after having dairy. Try alternatives like almond milk instead.
  5. Make fruit swaps. Try berries, grapes, & citrus instead of honeydew, apples, or pears. They are easier to digest & have less fructose.
  6. Hold the hot sauce. Spicy foods can release stomach acid & cause irritation.
  7. Ditch diet foods. Anything that is low calorie or low fat contain sugar alcohols (xylitol or malitol) can cause stomach pains.
  8.  Eliminate alcohol. Alcohol causes dehydration, which can cause your body to hang on to more water.
  9. Get active. Do something active daily. This will help stimulate your intestinal muscles. Get out there for a walk, a bike ride, or some jump rope, whatever you enjoy.

I really hope these tips help y’all out because I know belly bloating is no fun. If you apply these tips, these are definitely 9 ways to flatten you belly this week!

Have a Healthy Halloween

b4df94adf408cace859da392371fd925 Have a Healthy Halloween

Does this picture not look amazing?! I want to devour that apple up right now! LOL! I have been doing a lot of thinking about how I’ve stayed healthy during the holidays the past 3 years. I’ve also been doing a lot of research so that I can help y’all do the same! Halloween is coming up right around the corner so I wanted to help everyone get ready so that we can all have a healthy Halloween!

Here are a few tips to help you stay on track:

  1. Make healthier versions of “naughty” foods. You can find all kinds of recipes for healthy desserts. I use my Shakeology to make desserts all the time – there’s even a Reese’s recipe out there! And don’t forget to grab my ebook when I release it next month for lots of ideas icon smile Have a Healthy Halloween
  2. When you take your kids trick-or treating, walk instead of drive. This will help you burn some extra calories while also enjoying time with your family.
  3. Plan ahead. Grab some easy recipes from my Pinterest board & plan out what you’re going to make. http://www.pinterest.com/jbaum87/healthy-halloween/
  4. Drink lots of water & eat a healthy meal before handing out candy or going out with your kids. This will help you to be able to say no more easily to all that candy.
  5. Enjoy some candy in moderation. If there’s something you’re really craving, eat one or two small pieces. If you don’t satisfy that craving & completely deprive yourself, you’re going to go crazy & end up binging.
  6. Be an example. Have healthier handouts for your neighborhood. Be that person that hands out apples. You will be an amazing example to your own family & lots of other families out there.

Instead of this…

 Have a Healthy Halloween

Why not something like this…
