The Five Health "Rules" I Break as a Health Coach: Losing Weight is All about Diet and Exercise

For 5 weeks, I have been breaking down the top five “health rules” that I BREAK. 

One thing that I pray for you is that you never take any person’s opinion as fact.  While some of these “rules” might work for you, I would say the majority of people it is actually hurting rather than helping them.  Even when I tell you my opinion, you need to decide for yourself if you will benefit from this or not.  You need to test it out by applying it to your life, listen to how your body reacts and then by making YOUR OWN DECISION.

Last week’s rule was EAT EVERYTHING IN MODERATION.  I’d love to hear your opinions so don’t forget to stop by my Facebook page and leave questions or comments!

 

This is the last week!  Of course, I saved the best for last!

 

Health "rule": LOSING WEIGHT IS ALL ABOUT DIET AND EXERCISE, MOSTLY DIET THOUGH.

 

I’m smiling right now while reading that statement.  Yes,...

Tough Relationships

We all have them.  You know…

  • The sister-in-law that one-ups you all the time.
  • The mother that never helps out.
  • The friend that gets drunk and embarrassing every time you spend time together.
  • The husband that never has anything nice to say.
  • The child that is strong willed and never obeys.

 

Those tough relationships.

 

They are draining.  Mostly mentally, but sometimes physically also. Most of that energy is spent wishing they were some how different.  We just want them to be easier to get along with.

But they’re not.  They probably won’t change.  And all that energy you’re spending wishing, wanting, hoping, is just wasted.

 

Do you wish you could just feel better about these relationships?

 

You can. 

 

This is what you’re signing up for if you want to feel better; you don't get to change the other person.  You can only change yourself and do the hard work of managing your thoughts.

Why Can't I Have a Marriage Like That?

**If you would like to listen to this blog post, scroll to the bottom for the audio version.

 

Want to know something I'm not proud of? 

I complain about my spouse. 

Yep.  I try not do it too much with other people (i.e. mainly my girlfriends).  My head on the other hand, that’s a different story.

A month ago I created a post on Facebook that seemed to grab people’s attention.  You can find it here.

Today, I want to expand on that post.  Since Valentine ’s Day is just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to remind you (and myself) of a few things about marriage.

 

I'm going to give you a shocker here..... You can’t control your spouse

Nope. 

He’s his own being.  He makes his own decisions.  No matter how much you hint, remind, pester and blatantly ask, he gets to decide his own actions.

I know this is a hard pill to swallow.

Oh, I get it ladies.  This...
