Why Autumn is Great for Resolutions

What feelings come up when you think of summer ending and autumn creeping in? Is it one of refreshment and excitement for the new season to begin? Or perhaps you’re disappointed for the summer fun in the sun to come to an end? Which side of the road are you on? Autumn is my favorite season.  I love the cooler weather and seeing the leaves change when I visit my cabin in GA.  The fall colors are my favorite <3

If summer’s half as busy for you as it is for most, the impending fall season may feel like an incredibly necessary wind-down time. As the weather begins to cool down and we gear up for a change, it’s the perfect time to reevaluate your goals that may have slacked off after New Years, and use this time as a second resolution season.  What in your life needs a fresh start? Think about 1 or 2 things that would improve your life for the better, that you’ve been meaning to get around to doing. Does this mean going to bed earlier on a regular basis? Making sure you eat fruits and veggies daily? Choose just a few things so you can stick with it!

What goals are you striving to achieve that need a tweaking? Anything you’ve been working on that’s taking longer than expected? That could mean you just need to slightly tweak your plan to make it more actionable, less daunting and more easily accessible. What could that be?  What projects around the house didn’t get checked off during Spring Cleaning? Is the closet still overflowing and the basement a mess? What project can you tackle that you’ve been putting off?

Aside from the beautiful colors, delicious seasonal foods and crisp air that autumn brings, it brings a new chance for achieving your goals by the end of the year as well. Don’t feel guilty if your new year resolutions fell to the side — pick them back up and reach your goals.

So, what will it be for you?  I’ll be training for a half marathon at Lighthouse Loop on October 29 and a full marathon at Tomoka in March of 2018.  I’m also working on decluttering my home and a few other health coaching programs.

The Busy People’s Guide to Healthy Eating on the Go

How to fuel your body for better health and more energy  even when you have a crazy busy schedule

One of the biggest struggles that most people face today is a hectic schedule.

We’re so busy that it makes eating healthy a real challenge. Quick and convenient foods end up taking the place of healthy, nourishing food when we’re on the go, go, go all the time.  These less-than-ideal food choices put us on the hamster wheel of experiencing low energy, weight gain, and potential health problems.

What if I told you it didn’t have to be this way? You don’t have to be a slave to your schedule and resort to fast food or processed foods on a regular basis.

It’s possible to eat healthy foods, even with a jam-packed schedule. It just requires a little bit of pre-planning to ensure success. You’ll feel better, have more energy, and your waistline will thank you too.

When you start fueling your body with healthier choices, you’ll probably also find that you don’t have that 3 PM slump or need that afternoon caffeine boost. (These are a couple of added benefits many of my clients experience, and they’re always pleasantly surprised).

I’ve included a list of healthy snack ideas to get you started, so keep reading.

Eating Healthy When You’re Not Home

There are plenty of circumstances that will take you away from home, and make it more challenging to eat healthy food. Take the time to plan ahead and you can relax knowing that you won’t be derailing your healthy living efforts by consuming empty calories that only make you hungry again a short time later.

Daily Errands and/or Kid’s Activities

Most of us spend several hours in our vehicles every week running errands, stuck in traffic or shuttling kids back and forth between activities. If we don’t plan ahead, it is easy to fall into the trap of swinging through the closest drive through when you (or your family) are hungry.

Don’t wait until the point that you’re starving to make food choices, as this will almost always lead to bad decisions. Instead, plan ahead, so you don’t have to rely on your willpower alone to keep you on track. Pack easy to carry healthy snacks, and keep them in either your purse or your vehicle. This way you always have healthy choices right at your fingertips.

Road Trips

Just because you’re on vacation, doesn’t mean you should take a total hiatus from your health goals. You can still live a healthy lifestyle on road trips by packing healthy foods to eat in the car. You can pack a cooler to keep handy so you have easy access to snacks while on the road. If you’re planning on stopping at rest areas along the way, pack a nutritious picnic lunch to eat before you head back out on the next leg of your trip.

Airports

Even though you can’t pack liquids in your carry-on bag, there are still plenty of options for what you can bring. You can pack wrapped whole food snack bars, nuts, seeds or even pieces of fruit in your personal items bag. With a little creative planning, you can keep your nutrition on track, and save yourself a bundle of money you would have otherwise spent on pricey (and often unhealthy) airport food and snacks.

Foods That Are Easy to Pack

The following items are all easy to prepare, and convenient to take on the go. Feel free to experiment, and find out which snacks best fit your preference and lifestyle. Mix and match options to see what works for you.  Be sure to keep any perishable foods in a cooler or use an ice pack.

  • Baby carrots and cucumber slices with hummus
  • Sliced or whole apples with nut butter or sun butter
  • Clementine or mandarin oranges
  • Grapes
  • Sliced or whole pears
  • Smoothie (if you plan to drink it within 30 mins or so)
  • Nuts and raisins (you can make your own trail mix)
  • Pumpkin seeds (pepitas) and/or sunflower seeds
  • Whole Food Snack Bars (such as Larabar)
  • Sandwiches or wraps
  • String cheese or cheese cubes
  • High quality beef jerky
  • Cut-up rotisserie chicken (keep cool with an ice pack)
  • Hard boiled eggs

Make the Most of Technology

Almost everyone has a smartphone with them at any given time. You can use this readily available technology to your advantage. Keep your food choices healthy when you’re on the go by utilizing apps that make healthy living easier.

“Healthy Out” is a handy app to keep your nutrition on track when eating out. You can search by tags like meals under 500 calories, paleo, heart healthy, and more. Download the app for iOS or Android to find restaurant meals that fit your needs.

If anyone in your family is gluten intolerant, it may be a challenge to find restaurants that serve gluten-free meals. You can use the app called “Find Me Gluten Free” to help find restaurants with gluten free offerings in your vicinity.

Make Midweek Meals Easy

Just because you have had a busy day doesn’t mean you have to resort to fast food or processed foods for dinner. With a little forethought, you can make sure your family has healthy meals ready to go when you walk in the door.

With the advent of Pinterest, you now have thousands of healthy crockpot meal ideas available for free. Do a quick search and see what recipes may interest you and your family. If you prep everything the night before, or even earlier in the morning, you can come home to a delicious home-cooked meal that is ready to serve.

Other helpful websites for crockpot recipe ideas are Allrecipes.com and Eating Well.

TIME SAVER TIP:  Batch cook and plan for leftovers. When you do have time to cook, simply double the recipe and set the extras aside to use later in the week on a particularly busy day. It takes very little extra effort to double the recipe, and you will reap the benefits of time savings later in the week.

Make Healthy Eating Strategies Work for You

Even with a busy schedule, you can still make sure that you are eating healthy, nutritious meals. By putting in a little bit planning, you can ensure that you and your family enjoy healthy foods that support your lifestyle and your goals.

You can do this! Let me know if I can help.

How to stay on track this holiday season

5 tips to help you get through the holiday season without packing on the pounds

As this holiday season approaches, many of us are preparing for big celebrations and parties.  Food, snacks, wine, beer, beverages… there is no other time of the year that people like to fill themselves up till their hearts content (or stomach is bursting!)

If you want to maintain your waistline this holiday season or even lose weight while people around you are packing on the holiday pounds, then this is for you!

Below are 5 tips for staying on track this holiday season:

stay on track sneakersEat Snacks Moderately – Let’s face it, snacks are abundant during the holidays seasons (as if they aren’t already throughout the year).  If you take a seat within an arm’s reach of the snack table, you’re going to have a tough time keeping yourself from unconsciously grabbing handfuls of party mix, candies, and the like and picking at them all day.  By sitting on the other side of the room, getting to the snacks involves a conscious effort into getting up and walking over to get at the snacks.

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise! – If the weather permits it, go out and take a quick walk around the house or block.  If your celebration is taking place in a colder climate, you’ll be more inspired to quicken your pace and burn a few extra calories in the process.  If the weather is bad, do 10-20 squats, stretches, or other brief exercise each time you go to the restroom.  You only want to do just enough to elevate your heart rate, but not break out into a sweat.  Chances are, no one will know what you’re doing, and you won’t have to feel self-conscious about trying to maintain your figure.

stay-on-track-waterEat More Raw Foods – Take an extra scoop of vegetables and fruit when filling your plate, and by the time you finish, you won’t have room for the other foods which are higher in calories and more likely to cause you to gain weight. Also, avoid fatty and fried foods (they taste good, but you know they aren’t good for you!)

Drink A Lot Of Water Throughout The Day – Water helps your body stay hydrated and healthy.  Drink a glass or two of water around 20 minutes before each meal, as well as during and between them.  The liquid in your stomach will help trick your mind into not feeling as hungry, which reduces the tendency to gorge yourself on potentially fattening foods.  Water also aids in the digestion process allowing your body more time to actually absorb the goodness in the food you consume.

stay-on-track-fruitEat In Smaller Portions – Instead of eating platefuls of food, try eating smaller portions throughout the day.  No doubt, everything at the table looks good, and it’s all you can do to keep from filling your plate 2-3 times so that you can sample everything.  An easy way to combat this urge is to simply take a smaller portion than you normally would of those dishes you’re most interested in, especially belt-bursting desserts.  Split a piece of pie or cake with your spouse, child, or another family member so you aren’t eating a full portion.

Do you have any tips you’d like to share?  Comment below or email me.  Let’s make this holiday season happy and healthy!

Kim’s Tips to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

If you believe the stories about how much weight people put on during the holidays, you’re probably right.  Some people will be five pounds or more heavier at the end of the holiday season.  The bad news is we tend to keep the pounds that we put on during the holidays.  Over ten years those pounds could lead someone to become overweight or obese.  So, what can we do in order to keep those extra pounds off?   Here’s a few tips to get you through the holidays without adding extra weight.

Juweight-gain-browniesst A Nibble!
Have you ever noticed that when you start eating a rich dessert it tastes so good, but by the last bite, you’ve had enough?  One way to keep the pounds down is just to enjoy a 2 or 3 bites of that delicious cheesecake or chocolate fudge brownie.  No one says that you have to completely deprive yourself of holiday treats, just limit how much you eat!

Enjoy the Company, Not The Brownies!
Many people think of holiday parties in terms of the foods that they’ll get to eat (or have to avoid) instead of the real reason for the celebration – the company and conversation.  If you keep yourself busy chatting with friends, you’ll be less likely to go rummaging at the snack table.

Go Full
You’ve probably heard the grocery store trick; don’t go shopping when you’re hungry because you’ll only end up buying more.  Well, the same works for holiday parties! Eat a lot of raw vegetables, and other healthy foods before you go to the party as they will keep you feeling fuller and you’ll be less tempted to binge on the bad stuff.

weight-gain-waterDrink Water
If you were to add up the calories that you’ve probably consumed in food and beverages at parties, you would probably be shocked.  You can gulp down hundreds of calories without even realizing it if you’re not careful!  Try to remember to drink water before you eat and during your meal to help aid your digestion and stay hydrated.

Create An Eating Schedule
Instead of heading instantly to the food table and loading your plate and then suffering the rest of the party because you want more, try spacing out your snacks for the entire time of the party.  Plan on taking a nibble of something every twenty to thirty minutes. Not only will it help you eat less, it will be a fun game that you can play with yourself!

Most importantly, remember that the holidays are meant for enjoyment.  Try not to be too hard on yourself, and if you make a mistake, take a long walk to help work off those extra calories instead of beating yourself up over it!

 

FREE Healthy Holidays Program

Transform Your Holiday Season!

healthy holidays program

Monday November 21 marks the start of my FREE Healthy Holiday Event! We will transform our holiday season together and start the New Year out right!

Do you want to join us? It is FREE and we are all participants.

We can all do it our own way. All you have to do is set goals and be accountable for your actions and progress at least once a week.

Goals should include:

  • Nutrition (adding in at least one healthy food per week)
  • Exercise (30 minutes 4 – 5 days a week)
  • Gratitude (take the time to be grateful for at least 3 things in your life daily)
  • Giving (challenge yourself to give without expectation of reciprocation once daily)

Nutrition
Don’t be hard on yourself this holiday season. Our goal is to simply add in one healthy whole food each week. Enjoy your holiday traditions and don’t eat beyond what feels good to you.

Exercise
Resolve to get at least 30 minutes of good healthy exercise on most days. You will feel better through the holidays. Exercise is good for depression, weight maintenance and your general health.

Gratitude
List 3 things that you are grateful for each day. By focusing on gratitude, we see our lives from a different perspective. Instead of seeing what is going wrong, we see the more important picture of what is right in our lives.

Giving
You don’t have to brag about your giving, but if someone gives and it turns out to be really special, share it with us.  It does not have to be an expensive gift, just thoughtful and meaningful.  Can you do a random act of kindness?

Do you know anyone who is struggling through the holidays? Invite them along!

When you SIGN UP I will send you an email with a link to the Private Facebook Group.  Let’s make this an amazing holiday season!

Safe food handling during the holidays and everyday

food handlingDid you know that the turkey you thawed on the kitchen counter, instead of in the fridge, could now contain bacteria levels high enough to harm human life, even though you can’t see, smell, or taste it?

There’s nothing better than a home cooked meal during the holidays.  But, with all the special effort that goes into making one, everything will be for nothing if the food has not been stored, prepared, or cooked properly.  Food experts agree that the safe handling of food should be the top ingredient in any recipe, especially during the holidays when we are time poor, stress levels are high and in a rush to serve up food to guests.

Following these simple but important food-handling tips will keep your family and guests safe from unpleasant, and sometimes life-threatening, food-born illnesses.

1.    When buying raw meat, keep juices, which may contain bacteria, from contaminating your hands or anything in your grocery cart.  Plastic bags work great for this purpose.  Meat should also be picked up at the end of your grocery shopping and should not be placed in the same bag as fruits and vegetables on your trip home.

2.    If you plan on storing your meat for 2 to 3 months in the freezer, make sure you buy some freezer proof wrap.  The wrap that the store uses is designed to allow air into the meat product and, as a result, is not safe for freezing.  This is because beef products turn from a purple color to a bright red when exposed to air, making them look fresh, but if left too long will promote bacteria growth.

3.    Defrosting should be done in the refrigerator or in a sink full of water, changing the water every 45 minutes.  A refrigerator allows the meat to defrost in a controlled atmosphere, slowing down the growth of bacteria.  Never defrost your meat on top of the counter at room temperature.  This can quickly become a bacteria breeding ground. The growth rate of bacteria multiplies rapidly between 40F (4C) and 140F (60C).

4.    Once meat has been thawed it must be either cooked immediately or placed in the refrigerator and then cooked within 24 hours.  Never refreeze meat.  Most meats and poultry only have a safe fridge life of 2 days, whether stored after thawing or purchased fresh.

5.    When handling raw meat, wash your hands before and after.  Also, wash counters or plates you plan to reuse in the preparation process if they have had raw meat on them, as they will also contain harmful levels of bacteria.

6.    As humans, we also carry harmful organisms on our skin which, when spread to food, produce a toxin that normal cooking cannot destroy.  Therefore, it is essential to wash our hands thoroughly with soap and water prior to handling food, as well as cover open cuts.

7.    Turkey must be completely cooked.  At the innermost part of the thigh, the temperature must reach 180F (82C) for a stuffed turkey and 170F (77C) unstuffed.  Stuffing in the cavity should read 165F (74C).  Cooking times vary with the weight of the bird.  It is important not to keep the thermometer inside the oven with the bird as it could be affected by the ovens hot air and provide a false reading.

8.    Plan your cooking ahead of time.  Do not partially cook the bird, refrigerate, and then complete the cooking process, as this will produce dangerously high levels of bacteria.

9.    Cooked food must be refrigerated within 2 hours, which means that you need to plan your meal so that it can be eaten shortly after being cooked.

10.    Refrigerated leftovers should be eaten within a couple of days, which includes turkey gravy, fish, and eggs.  Meat casseroles and pies, rice, potatoes, and cooked noodles will last 3 to 4 days, while cooked meat, chicken, turkey, turkey stuffing, and many soups may last up to 4 days before bacteria levels reach critical points.

Using safe food handling practices allows for healthy eating.  The rest is a matter of taste.  As always, try and opt for the healthiest options with your holiday cooking.  Your tummy and waistline will love your for it.

Becoming Healthy

A Lifelong Journey

beforeWhen I think about what it means to be healthy I think of so many different things, mental health, emotional health, physical health, spiritual health.  All of these areas are important but I have found when working on one area others seem to improve.  An example that comes to mind is when I started following the Daniel Plan in January of 2014.  When I started the study I wanted to improve my spiritual health and faith.  In doing so my physical, mental, and emotional health also improved.  Over the past few years I have made a lot of improvements to my habits that have helped me get healthier but the journey is not over.  I will also strive to be healthier in one area or another.  I want to keep growing.

How do you want to improve-We all start in a different place.  Some may do well with exercising but need help improving their food choices.  Others are emotionally strong and lacking physical health.  We need to think about where we are now and where we would like to be in the future.  How do you want to improve?  What steps can you take to start working towards your goals?

I also want you to think about the areas that you are strong in.  I am very runconsistent when exercise and being active but that wasn’t always the case.  Just a few years ago I could barely run at all and I actually stopped training for a 5k after the first workout due to having an asthma attack.  Now I normally run 3 days a week and have completed a half marathon.  I have not had to use my asthma inhaler before,  during, or after running.  It is truly amazing what can be accomplished when you are determined and ask for God’s help.  What areas are you seeing improvement in?  How did the change start and what kept you moving in the right direction?

10 steps infographicTo help people on their journey to better health I created a FREE guide:  10 Steps to a Leaner, Healthier You.  There may be items that you are already doing pretty regularly and some you should add to your routine.  The guide gives you small action steps.  Make a change or two and then when you are ready add more changes.  Slow steady progress leads to lasting change.

6 Weeks to a More Amazing youI also created a FREE 6 week email program:  6 Weeks to a More Amazing You.  You will receive 1 email each week with 1 simple but very effective way to feel better, look better, and have more energy.  Sign up Today!

My hope is that these free tools can help you on your journey to better health.  Some of the steps might be easy for you to implement and some may take more time and be more challenging.  I would love to hear from you so you can let me know what changes you made and how they impacted your life.

Reading books with a spiritual focus has helped me grow and consider ideas and concepts I hadn’t thought of.  I am also listening to podcasts again and love Matt Ham’s podcast Whole Life Matters.  It is short, only about 15 minutes per episode, and is great when I am taking a quick walk in the afternoon.  I also listen to Daily Hope with Rick Warren, Saddleback Church:  Drivetime Devotions, and Small Biz Life.  What are some of your favorite podcasts?  I would love to check them out!

As some of you know, I lead many online Bible studies.  The largest study I currently lead is The Daniel Plan  which is a 6 week study that discusses the 5 essentials of faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends.  I also lead the follow up study called The Daniel Plan 5 Essentials Series.  It is a 20 week study that goes into more detail for each of the essentials of the Daniel Plan.  In the past I have help studies on Breathe by Priscilla Shirer &  Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst.  I have plans to lead a few more later this year.  Spiritual health is so important.  I love being able to lead and participate in studies and help people grow spiritually.  Sign up for my monthly newsletter and I’ll keep you updated about studies that I will be leading in the future.

I pray that you will take the time to spend time with God and praying about your purpose.  We do not always know what God’s plans are for our lives.  We are busy and just react to what is going on rather than stopping, thinking, and praying for guidance.

We must make the time to be still and listen to God.  He can point us in the right direction if we spend time with Him.  Our paths take detours.  God has a reason for the journey.  He can renew our hope in our future if we take a few minutes to pray.

Last week I read a 4 day devotional on YouVersion : Exploring your Gifts.  While it is written with young adults in mind, I found it very inspiring and enjoyed the discussion of leadership.   Maybe it will give you an idea or 2 about your future and what your purpose is.
