They Say "April Showers bring May Flowers", But I say

May is about change.

When I lived in Florida, I longed for the change of seasons. I dreamed about waking up to the first snow fall of the season. Not because I ski, but because with the snow, came an emotional change. Then as the Spring sprang upon us, another change.

Have you read the book, "Who Moved My Cheese"? The premise being those who deal well with change are the most successful in work, relationships and life.

Change is good - "did you hear me? Change is good." With that said, take a look at your diet - where do you need to create change? If you just rattled off 10 things - forget it. Write the list, but chose the first thing you are going to tackle - Let me explain.

When I work with people who need to change their diets, it is like moving a mountain - more difficult than adding exercise. Exercising with a personal trainer, is about making an appointment. There are few clients that cancel, because, in their minds, "they don't want to let me down." When it comes to food, the longstanding, emotional attachment is also a relationship, changing a dis functional relationship requires more than making an appointment - some times years of therapy still cant change the attraction we have to disf

unction :)

Or, we can look at it like this, it takes 21 days to change a habit and therefore, I recommend taking one thing from your list of 10 and working on it for 21 days. Make it part of your every day life, before tackling another hurdle, create a relationship with this change.....

Taking on too much of anything results, ultimately, in failure. It doesn't allow us the time to create a relationship with that change. For example, if you set a short term goal of "losing weight for vacation" you're more likely to be successful - it's short term, no relationship required, because we know there is an end...... Long term, on the other hand, requires creating change in your daily routine and your relationship with food and therefore your life........this take s a bit longer....

Let this concept resonate......then make your list....then buy the book "Who Moved my Cheese". Let's work on creating positive change within ourselves. The healthier we are, the healthier all our relationships will be......It starts with you :)

xoxo, Kathleen
