Spring Fling!

A weekly message to strengthen your CORE and develop your resolve. 
April 30, 2014
Cleaning I am totally into spring cleaning these days! It’s amazing how throwing out a couple of bags of trash can totally exhilarate me. I love the feeling that comes with getting rid of old and outdated stuff and making room for new… whatever that may be. Spring is the season of renewal – intrinsically we all want to shake off the old and renew ourselves. So, in the spirit of Spring (and the beautiful flowers blooming in my yard) let’s give our approach to health a little spring cleaning. It all starts by taking a look within at our values. Our values are the silent forces that drive our actions and decisions, or our inactions and indecisions (aka the clutter in our closets). I find in my work with clients that the frustration and confusion they experience in weight management is related to a lack of congruency between their values and their behaviors. They have goals and desires but no real sense of why they are willing to work for them. Values are the foundation of change. And as any REAL Skinny will tell you: you don’t need a new diet, what you need is a stronger sense of purpose.
This week spend some time identifying your values. Don’t worry about getting them perfect; just spend some time examining what is important to you at the very deepest level. Once you get your values in place, you will be amazed how everything you do from what you eat to the type of exercise you choose will have a greater sense of meaning and purpose.
So dig in – Spring is here and we are ready to bloom!
