Last night we had our launch party at the local gym that I'm leading through their Holiday 2 Holiday Challenge! I got to talk nutrition to our 55 contestants and answer questions and meet everyone! I'm so excited! We have such a great group!
Our live local group is full, but you can still join my ONLINE Holiday 2 Holiday Challenge HERE!!
So what did I talk to them about last night? Food? Sure...a little. But mostly I talked about MINDSET.
Mindset can make such a difference in an enjoyable experience...versus one of struggle.
I told them to focus on what they CAN have during the challenge rather than what they CAN'T have.
I told them that when people offer them that cocktail or slice of pie over the holidays.... the easy thing to do is say "I can't eat that." or "I'm on a diet." ....that doesn't feel good and puts the focus on deprivation.
I told them to try this instead...
Respond by saying, "No thanks, I'm choosing to eat healthier this holiday season."
By shifting our mindset and responding this way, it's puts you in CONTROL and evokes a feeling of empowerment. This small shift in mindset can be a HUGE factor in success!
Here's to making healthier choices this holiday season with a healthy mindset!
