Friday Weekend Warm-up – June 12, 2020

Friday Weekend Warm-up: Wouldn’t it be so great to go to bed Sunday night, and wake up Monday morning, and know you had an on-track and in control weekend?  You can make it happen! Staying on track can be hard, but it’s worth it.

Think Thin Thursday – June 11, 2020

Think Thin Thursday: Are you getting in enough steps per day? Now that you’re home more and likely not walking around an office, it’s important to make sure you’re still making a deliberate effort to move throughout the day. It’s critical for physical and mental health! 

Wednesday Sabotage – June 10, 2020

Wednesday Sabotage: I don’t need feel like planning and measuring my food. I know what and how much I’m going to eat. I don’t need to go to so much effort. 

Response: If I only do the things I feel like doing, I won’t be able to lose weight and keep it off. Even if I don’t need to do these things to lose weight initially, I have to learn how to make myself implement these crucial skills for the future, when my motivation isn’t as high as it is today. 

Tuesday Reality Check – June 9, 2020

Tuesday Reality Check: Being accountable for your actions is a critical part of successful weight loss because it enables you to recognize mistakes, which then allows you to learn from them for the future. It’s not about making yourself feel bad for making mistakes, it’s about learning from them to help you keep moving forward.  Next time you make a mistake, take few moments and answer these three questions: 

  1. What happened/what was the situation? 
  2. Which sabotaging thoughts got in my way? 
  3. What can I say and/or do differently the next time? 

Monday Motivation – June 8, 2020

Monday Motivation: What are some things you’re doing for self-care this week? Taking care of yourself in healthy ways (not extra food ways) is critical right now. Make sure you commit to at least one or two concrete self-care activities this week.

Friday Weekend Warm-up – June 5, 2020

Friday Weekend Warm-up: Do something fun this weekend! Even though you likely can’t eat at restaurant with a friend, go to a museum or attend a party, there are still fun experiences to be had. Work on finding at least one this weekend.  

Think Thin Thursday – June 4, 2020

Think Thin Thursday: Remember that taking care of yourself is a necessity, not a luxury. If you think, “I can’t take 10 minutes to sit down and de-stress in a healthy way,” remind yourself, “Yes I can! There is no better use of 10 minutes than taking care of myself.” 

Wednesday Sabotage – June 3, 2020

Wednesday Sabotage: I’m not able to lose weight right now, so I should just give up. 

Response: Even if weight loss isn’t possible during this pandemic, weight maintenance is SO MUCH BETTER than gaining weight! At least in maintenance I get to continue feeling in control and not worry about my health suffering or my clothes getting tight. Maintenance is so, so worth it. 

Tuesday Reality Check – June 2, 2020

Tuesday Reality Check: Are you buying things at the grocery store in case you might want them over the next week? Is having those things at home taxing your resistance muscle? If so, leave the struggle at the store! Stop buying them and save yourself hours of struggle over the next weeks.  

Monday Motivation – June 1, 2020

Monday Motivation: This is undeniably a hard and strange time. If you’re having thoughts like, “I can’t focus on healthy eating right now,” remind yourself that healthy eating is important now more than ever! Being healthy and feeling in control is extra important when life is hard and there are so many factors out of our control.
