Cook one day, eat all week long. Here's how to do it: on your day off, make 3 protein mains + 3-5 side dishes. Mix and match them throughout the week and you're good to go!
It took me a long time to realize that when I was unhappy, it was actually because I was not healthy.
I even began to wonder if my kids would see me as a good mom ... no matter how overweight I became. Somehow I instinctively knew that if I didn’t start taking better care of me, how could I be a good role model for my kids? Especially when I would coax them with ..."but this food is healthy for you to eat"....
For me my healthy focus started in the year 2000 when I started going to the gym while the 2 youngest played in their ChildCare. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the focus of weight training and noticed a burning desire to learn so much more about the human body.
Shockingly, I found myself applying AND being accepted as an adult student at The University of Western Ontario for a degree in movement science, aka Kinesiology! This was a turning point in my life and I took the opportunity to also take general interest nutrition courses.
I achieved becoming the best by being that personal trainer who focused only on THE best and safest exercises for my clients. It was my goal to empower many women to feel confident (and strong) in the gym ... and when that happened to them it felt REAL good for me!
However, it puzzled me when my own beliefs about "out-training a bad diet” where proven wrong as my client's results would completely come to a halt. My clients were doing ALL the work in the gym but yet they still required better body composition results. Hmmm, but how could this be?
Speed up today, I've now come to realize that we feel bombarded with seemingly overnight success stories. I recall feeling overwhelmed with NOT knowing where to start with nutrition and my mistake of believing in shortcuts.
I've been coached through the same 1-year program that I now coach my clients through. It showed me nutrition can be made simple and you don't have to do everything all at once! Actually I will teach you how to start with just one strategy or 'habit' and then every other week add in 1 more.
This made nutrition do-able and the successful results will not only slowly show up but they will also stick around!
By the end of 1 year I had learned (and more importantly practiced) 24 skills regarding nutrition, exercised regularly enough to look healthier PLUS I was able to better understand my inner self-talk and feelings. It was from the daily focus of small do-able nutrition lessons, exercise or recovery, and a positive mindset along with the support of my coach that I was able to carve out a healthier lifestyle change. (Thanks Coach Krista!!)
Today I know that in order to be healthy it must be built from the inside out ... meaning food first and exercise next. As a Mom who knows the struggle of creating a healthier lifestyle I truly appreciate having resources to make healthy food easier and which is why I so value the Meal Plans and Recipe Collections that I offer in Meal Garden.
In a nutshell, the quality of both of those things must be high and must be consistent enough in order for change to occur. Therefore today, I'm a Mom who knows she's the healthiest, the happiest and the most confident I've ever been - 'thriving versus just surviving' - alongside a husband & four grownup kids (ages 19-26).
Over the last 16 years, I’ve been slowly (& unknowingly) transitioning from just being a personal fitness trainer to a role favouring my truest calling ... being THE BEST supportive wellness coach who's ready to guide you in transforming to 'live healthier, be happier and feeling wonderful'!
