Clean Eating Grocery Haul

clean eating grocery haul Clean Eating Grocery Haul

Yesterday I asked on Facebook & Twitter what people need most help with when it comes to health & fitness – almost everyone said nutrition. So I figured I would give y’all a sneak peak of some goodies I picked up during my grocery haul today at Trader Joes & Target. This will be the first of many clean eating grocery hauls because I want to teach everyone how simple it can be.
I got some salt free seasonings to put on my lean meats to make them more exciting, coconut oil spray for cooking eggs & veggies (gives it a nice flavor), liquid stevia for my coffee (calorie free), some dessert gum & dark chocolate to cure my massive sweets cravings, & fruits, baby carrots, & nuts for snacking!  I’m all about simple, easy, & healthy!  So there it is – just a snapshot of my clean eating grocery haul for the week.

How to Overcome Binge Eating

overcome binge eating How to Overcome Binge Eating

Today I wanted to write about something that I also struggle with in hopes that it’ll help others. Ever since losing 60 lbs a few years ago & keeping it off, I have struggled with binge eating. I will decide to go on these crazy restrictive diets & then when I am done & can have “real food” again, I tend to get out of control.

Most recently I was doing probably the most restrictive diet I have ever done in my life & it caused me to end up binging pretty bad at Christmas. I literally just wrote ya’ll a post Monday about how to stay healthy, but I didn’t follow it myself. Sweets are totally my weakness so I overindulged on several cookies & lots of Sangria. But for once, I am not going to beat myself up & am going to take this as a learning lesson. I have decided no more crazy restrictive diets, I will just eat healthy & allow myself small treats in moderation so that I don’t feel the need to overindulge.

So because of all this I was doing some research on how to overcome binge eating so I wanted to share it with ya’ll, too.

  1. Mange your stress. Find alternate ways to handle stress such as exercising, meditating, or other relaxation practices.
  2. Eat 3 meals a day plus healthy snacks. Be sure that you’re eating every 2-3 hours & consuming healthy foods. Think lots of whole grains, lean proteins, veggies, & fruits.
  3. Avoid temptation. Remove all the junk food from your house so it’s not there to tempt you.
  4. Stop dieting. Avoid banning certain foods & focus on just having things in moderation when you are craving something “unhealthy.”
  5. Exercise. It will help boost your mood & the positive emotions can put a stop to binge eating.
  6. Fight boredom. Distract yourself from eating by taking a walk, calling a friend, or reading a book.
  7. Get enough sleep. Make sure you’re getting 7-8 hours a night.
  8. Listen to your body. Learn to distinguish physical hunger & emotional hunger. Drink a glass of water & if you’re still hungry 15 minutes later, than you’re truly hungry.
  9. Keep a food diary. Track what you’re eating. You’ll be less likely to eat too much if you know you have to write it down.
  10. Get support. Use your family & friends to lean on. Join a support group.

I know the one that stood out to me most was “stop dieting” because that’s basically the only one that I’m struggling with now. I also know that having a huge support system around me helps so much! I never had this before I became a coach. I would love to help you get the amazing accountability & support that I get on a daily basis. Head over here to come join us!

I was overweight half my life & used to think that eating healthy was boring & miserable.

I started playing with food . . .and having a blast. I created new recipes – made them and the most fun part . . . taste testing!! Now, I have teamed up with my friend Sarah to bring you the most FUN cookbook!

Don’t Listen to the Scale!

dont listen to the scale Dont Listen to the Scale!

Achieving your health & fitness goals can sometimes seem so challenging when the number on the scale doesn’t move. I totally understand & have been there so many times!! But, seriously you are worth WAY MORE than that number! Don’t listen to the scale!

I just want you to know that you’re not alone, I felt that way half of my life. Then I started applying a couple easy weight loss tips,  found out about challenge groups & I’ve lost 60 lbs & have never been in the shape like I am today. But, after losing 60 lbs,  I’ve gained some weight but I know it’s all muscle because I look smaller now. So, don’t listen to the scale!

But, how do I overcome this battle? You may be feeling, “ I will never get over this number.”

In today’s video I wanted to address other ways you can measure your progress.

So let’s watch today’s message on how you can overcome the battle & finally be happy. Don’t listen to the scale!
