Real Is Beautiful

The truth is hating your extra fat is not going to make it go away. Actually, that will quite do the opposite. Paying attention to it. Being kind. Finding out the greatness about our bodies is the start to shedding weight. In my True Healthy Happy Living Program, I will show you how to do this and more.
My program is not a diet, cleanse, or detox program. I'm NOT going to try and sell you pills, powders, or gimmicks. I teach how to live beautifully on real foods and enlightened fun.

It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to explore their nutrition and weight loss goals with a trained professional. As a Health and Weight Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your Body Love goals. Throughout my education, I have been exposed to the most cutting-edge dietary theories and studied highly effective coaching techniques to help you find the right approach that works best for your lifestyle.

Most approaches to healthy eating dwell on calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Instead of creating long lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to explore basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together.  As these pieces accumulate, my clients find the changes collectively create a much larger impact than they originally expected. We work on what you want to improve, and within the circumstances of your unique situation. This creates a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of complete denial and discipline.

Sweet Kabocha Squash Soup



Prep Time
About a 1/2 hour to 40 minutes

Notes
 
With the fall weather here, I have been playing with hearty squash and gourds. It is such a fabulous healthy comfort food. I found this recipe in The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. I had to share it because it is so simple, delicious, and good for you. Alicia says, it soothes the digestion process. 

If you prefer, you can easily use butternut squash. Sometimes it is easier to find butternut squash and if you want to make prep time even shorter, most grocery stores have butternut squash already cubed. Also, if you would like, use an herb beside parsley. Like cilantro, basil, chives, or thyme. I have sprinkled basil on for a added pop of unique flavor. 

 
Cooking Time
1/2 hour

Yields
3 to 4 servings


Ingredients
 

4 cups of kabocha squash, peeled and cut in 2" cubes

3 1/2 cups of water

2 pinches of fine sea salt

Minced fresh parsley

 
Directions
 

Place the squash in a sauce pan with 3 1/2 cups of water. Bring to boil, and add a pinch of salt. Cover, lower the heat, and simmer for 15 minutes, until the  squash is soft. Mash the squash with a potato masher, or blend with a handheld blender, right in the pot. Add another pinch of salt, and simmer for 7 to 10 minutes longer. Serve the soup hot with a sprinkle of parsley on top.

 

Why Does Coaching Work?

If you want to know a deeper explanation of how a health coach can help you reach your health, weight, and overall wellness goals. Read this… I found this little treasure of an analogy from a blog by Brooke Castillo, The Life Coach School, June 2 2011

Why Does Coaching Work?

Is the coach of the Lakers (I think his name is Phil Jackson) a better basketball player than Kobe?

Why is he able to coach Kobe?

One student replied:

I asked my husband and he gave a brilliant answer that I believe is true.

He said, immediately, “Kobe’s in the game. Phil Jackson is outside of the game. Kobe is too caught up in the game to coach himself. The coach shows him when he’s not following the game plan or missing something. It might just be something Kobe Bryant doesn’t see at all and the coach can say, ‘Look – think about this or think about that. You need to get in the game plan.’ Being on the outside is a valuable advantage point. That’s why coaches walk up and down and look around the court or the field. It’s not always easy to see what’s going on. You can’t play your best game unless you know what’s going on between you and your opponent.”

In coaching, the opponent is our peanut brain. We are our opponent because we are fighting with ourselves. The coach helps you understand that. The coach helps you understand yourself because they observe you.

Let me know if that analogy just hit me in the head, like a big AHA moment. Is it much clearer know? Let me know in the comments below or anything else you may think or have a question about. 

So long for now, my friends :)
