Merry Belated Christmas

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family!

We had a really great season, filled with lots of friends and lots of family!

And just like you can’t get away from the Halloween decorations in August, talk of New Years Resolutions is flying across the coffee shops and gyms!

Its crazy to note that over half of American’s will resolve to get healthy this year.  Sadly, however, only 20% of them will be successful.

I read a post that listed the top 10 reasons why people fail at dieting.  One of them was because of binge eating.  The author said…

“The way I see it, you have two options.

You can either:

  • (A) Binge eat – be happy now that you’re eating delicious food, but feel bad later after the guilt sets in.
  • (B) Eat a healthy snack instead – be sad now because you feel deprived, but feel happy about your good decision later.

Either way, you are going to be both happy and sad about your decision. But if you choose option (B), you’re going to look better tomorrow. So choose wisely!”


That is so brilliant!  We all need to consider this when we are faced with these challenges.

Another reason he listed was that because people are dieting, and not making lifestyle changes.

As you’ve probably read, this past spring, Randy and I started our own Health Coaching Practice.  Since then, we have been able to work with many wonderful people, helping them set and achieve their health goals.  We help our clients understand how to create healthy habits in their lives, and remove unhealthy ones.  And in doing so, they are changing their lifestyle instead of dieting.   It is such a blessing to be able to walk with someone as they regain hope, achieve dreams and create new realities.  Knowing the doors that health has opened for us, makes us excited to see what it will do in the lives of others.

With the New Year just around the corner, we know that over half of the resolutions set by American’s will be geared toward getting healthy.  Have you, or someone you know decided to make this a resolution this year? We would love to walk beside people who are ready to make health a reality in their lives.
