Things to watch out for when dieting

  1. Sneaky calories - there are a lot of hidden calories that we don't see or often take notice to such as oil servings or juices that we don't include in our calorie count.
  2. Extreme diets - fads and trendy diets ebb and flow, but your goal is to have a healthy and nutrient rich body, stick to what is best for you in the long run.
  3. Starving yourself - a little hunger is okay, but to starve yourself is a completely different scenario. it’s best to reduce portions a little at a time.

Disruption of Progress

Whenever an outside force interrupts our progress - we skip gym for a day or two for example - it sends a message to our brains that we aren't good enough and we can't do it and that we should just give up.

Disruption is the biggest obstacle to overcome but we can always change this habit if we look at it with fresh eyes. Instead of seeing it as a negative event, look at is as a fresh start, like it's something we've never seen before. It would help open our minds to the curiosity and possibilities.

Resilience when feeling stressed

It can be tough to feel in control...feel you can manage your emotions and come out of 'all this' in one piece when life shakes us up.

Getting started & building momentum are sometimes the toughest things to do.

And these 2 steps can give us a huge start to getting back to life...build us up to be in a position to take further steps of shifting our thinking patterns and practicing resilience:

  1. We can handle only that much stress at a time. So, identify & remove things that are adding unnecessary stress.
  2. Do things little things that help us feel recharged and settled.
