Nail Your Wellness Goals
Optimal Nutrition for Busy Professionals Is Within Reach
No matter how hectic life gets, you know eating right has to become a top priority for you this year. No more putting it off. It’s time you finally reach those goals. But finding a way to get it done while balancing your career and personal life has always eluded you.
Let’s be honest. Establishing new habits and routines is hard. Taking charge of your wellbeing is a big deal. But you know it’s going to take more than positive thinking and a few salads to get you to where you want to be.
You’ve tried the diets and the self-deprivation. They never work long term. Sure you’ve experienced some measure of results, but somehow you end up back at square one. Feeling like you failed. The discouragement is hard to shake off.
Overcoming Obstacles With an Actionable Plan
The challenges of eating right for optimal health are real, so let’s just get that out there. Fast foods, convenience foods, donuts at the office. Everywhere you look unhealthy food choices abound. They are hard to resist. And they are made and marketed that way on purpose. To lure you into their trap!
Even when you have prepared in advance to eat better sometimes life has a way of pulling the rug out from under you.
Like when your kid missed the bus and now you have to take him to school on your way to work. Only it’s not on your way to work which means you have to leave now so you aren’t late. In your hurry you forgot to grab that Greek chickpea salad you carefully prepared last night. Now you're most likely option at lunchtime will be overprocessed fast food simply because it’s convenient.
Or maybe you are bombarded by temptation at work. Like when your boss shows her appreciation for the staff by bringing in those oversized muffins topped with loads of granulated sugar. And those giant bagels with cinnamon-cream flavored cream cheese. Or it’s a co-workers birthday and you know there’s going to be a mouth watering, five-layer chocolate cake calling your name in the breakroom.
How long can you resist? Is your will power enough to keep you from caving? For a long time mine wasn’t. I used to be addicted to sugar so I understand how hard it can be.
So what can you do differently this time to ensure your success? You know it’s time to try a different approach. But what else is there? How do you create a truly sustainable wellness plan that will work, fit your lifestyle and your preferences for food?
Have you considered working with a nutritional coach? It just might be what you need.

My 3 Vital Steps for Long Term Results
1 Empower Yourself: Decide today what you will do tomorrow.
It’s a proven practice for success in any area of life. Deciding today what you are going to do tomorrow will help you reach your wellness goals.
Eating right needs to be your predetermined choice. Keep your goals in the front of your mind. Leave yourself notes to remind you and reinforce what you have already chosen to be your priorities. You will be amazed at how simply being mindful to eat well will impact your actions for good!
2 Equip Yourself: Determine ways to crush temptation and obstacles.
We know temptations will come so determine in advance exactly how you will handle it. You need to be ready with a plan.
Similar to step 1, determining how you will combat temptation will empower you. This can be as easy as having alternative snacks on hand and a plan if you should leave your lunch behind.
Another way is to have an accountability partner. Or several. This could be a co-worker, a family member or even a support group on-line. Having an accountability partner is not only great when you are staring down a box of chocolate chip cookies, it’s also great to have people you can celebrate your successes with. Every win should be celebrated. Even small wins should be shared with a friend to keep you encouraged.
3 Invest In Yourself: Spend the necessary time creating a meal plan and shopping list.
This is probably the most daunting task for the clients I work with. But it doesn’t have to be.
There are all kinds of healthy, nutrient rich foods in the produce section of every grocery store.
Take the time to thoughtfully create your weekly meal plan. Without a well thought out meal plan, your chances of success dwindle rapidly so don’t overlook this step.
Start by creating a simple nutritious meal plan based on foods you already know to be the most healthy. Search the internet for recipes to incorporate. And be sure they contain a variety. Think lots of fresh green veggies, whole fruits, nuts, seeds, fish and lean meats.
There are tons of on-line resources to get you started with ideas.
Last thought to consider-Food delivery. We are fortunate to live in a time where good food is plentiful and can be delivered right to our door! Take advantage of that option if needed. Not only is it a huge time saver, it will also prevent those impulse purchases you sometimes make that do not line up with your wellness goals.
