Change is in the air

Can you feel it? Change is in the air! We’re springing forward with our clocks this weekend, flowers are peeking up out of the cold dirt and I’ve even heard some birds chirping.

Hot air balloons sunset Cappadocia, TurkeyWhen I decided to change my lifestyle forever and lose weight – all those years ago – I knew that meant change. I was nervous, but excited. What good things would this change bring? What challenges would I face? Truthfully, I had been in a dark place for so long that embracing change felt like my best option.

The minor tweaks I make to my routine these days are minuscule compared to those big, transformational changes. But continuing to make those small adjustments is no less important to overall success.

This week I introduced the final phase of the Eat Like It Matter Program, the Lean Phase. The Lean Phase is geared towards those wanting to lose those last, stubborn 10 pounds. And there’s no way around it, when you’re just a few pounds away from goal weight, you’ve really got to have all your ducks in a row. Here’s where those small – but critical – changes make all the difference.

Spring is the perfect time to start changing things up. And whether those changes are small (maybe a healthy Cucumber-Dill “Pizza” snack instead of a vending machine treat) or monumental (committing to changing your lifestyle for the rest of your life), all change is good change!

Have a happy, healthy week!

Food Blueprint Recipe: Cucumber-Dill “Pizza”

I eat from a “Food Blueprint” and my afternoon snack consists of:1 serving protein (here: full-fat greek yogurt), 2 servings veggies (cucumber + tomato), 1 serving slow-burning carb (whole grain wrap). Prep time: 2 minutes. Ready, set, eat.

I’ve been experiencing foot pain recently—and I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to turn my shoes over to look at the tread!!! When I did, I was horrified.
