Every year when Winter rolls around, you’ve probably noticed the glut of commercials for cold and flu medicines that promise to put an end to the coughing, sneezing, headaches, stuffiness and more that comes with being sick.
Most of us just chalk it up to being “that” time of year.
There’s no doubt about it…
Your body and your mind are directly linked.
What you think about has a clear effect on your health and vice versa.
In fact, I’ve just come across a fascinating study that shows how strong this mind-body connection is.
I am currently in my hometown, Oceanside, California attending my 20 year reunion and visiting family. While on vacation it is easy to use it as an excuse NOT to continue with your fitness and health plans but it really is possible to stay on track.
I pack my sandbag shells and Jungle Gym in my suitcase so I could get a great workout no matter where I am.
Knowing I was staying with my sister-in-law who lives 3 blocks from the beach made it easy. I brought my sandbag shells and filled them up at the beach. I recorded my circuit I did that is excellent for fat loss. Read more

It was such a beautiful day and I didn’t get to enjoy much of it! Ugh!
My husband had bring your kids to work today so he brought all 4 girls. You would think I could relax and enjoy some mommy time all by myself, but instead I was conducting job interviews all day. Although, I did take some time out of my schedule for a massage. Ahhhhh….much needed.

Before I log off the computer for the next 3 days, I want to wish you the Merriest Christmas ever. My family will be attending Christmas Eve service and spending the evening reflecting on the amazing sacrifice God made by coming to earth as a human baby. It is hard to fathom that God in his almighty power would choose to become a baby to a young girl and carpenter.
Again, Merry Christmas everyone. I will be back on Monday!
So far we’ve talked about creating a PLAN to control your calorie intake during the holidays. And part of that plan was really watching your alcohol intake because it can lead to bad eating decisions.
Now let’s talk more about enjoyment. Yes, you CAN enjoy your favorite foods. But enjoy them by savoring them, not devouring them.
Chew your food slowly.
That might not seem it, but that is a BIG TIME tip.
Enjoy your favorites by taking your time eating them. That may mean finding a quiet space to eat when at a loud party. But it will be worth the little bit of extra effort.
And it’s going to take about 20 minutes for your stomach to signal your brain that you are full. So take your time. Enjoy every bite with zero guilt.
Again, this might seem too simple, but it’s not. It really can be this easy if you stay focused on your plan.

Yesterday we discussed how crucial it is for you to have a PLAN to control your calorie intake during the holidays. Today’s tip is even more simple and expands on the premise.
Plan on staying away from the booze.
Look, a drink or two isn’t going to be the end of the world. But when two turns to three…
I’m not getting on my soap box here. I’m just telling you something you already know:
Booze leads to bad decisions. And in this case, we’re talking about bad eating decisions. Read more
