Coach Lisa here!

As you have probably heard us mention here, this is the PRIME quitting time. What better way to combat that, than entering a six-week challenge? For the next 6 Friday’s, I’ll be posting healthy habits leading you to greater weight-loss. No crazy diets, purges, or planks. Just tips and tricks to get better use out of this season! First up, is maybe the cornerstone of a weight-loss journey! Now, in all honesty, if you’re reading this then you may have this habit checked. Although, the hardest thing about habits? That they’re habits! It’s often said that it takes 21 days to make a habit and 90 days for it to become a permanent lifestyle change! Are you ready to get started changing things for real for life?

This six week course is intended to help you develop a new skill set around food, leading to greater weight loss and more success around the holidays. We’re going to start with some basic awareness skills…this is the backbone to success with Mindfulness. For now, just focus on this 1 habit this week. You don’t have to change anything else.The fact that you’re here, reading this is step one- but step two is turning this moment into a habit.

HEALTHY HABIT #1 – AWARENESS

Many of us eat while we are distracted – driving our cars, chasing kids, grabbing a drive by munch out of the bag or off the counter. Sometimes we grab something and quickly eat it over the sink at lunch or nibble out of the fridge. We sit down to unwind in front of the TV and find our way to the bottom of that bag of popcorn without even realizing it.

Did you know mindless eating can account for up to 15 lbs of weight gain for the average person in a year?

This week we are going to start breaking this habit. By making one simple change, you can begin to break patterns. Nighttime snacking and overeating are holding you back from seeing success in your weight-loss journey. 

Start here with this video

WEEK 1 – CHALLENGE 1

NO MORE DRIVE BY EATING! This includes finishing your kids plate, eating standing up, eating in the car or in front of the TV.

Be sure to let me know how you’re doing and join me next week for Part 2!

    Thank you for this! I teach, and since the start of this “unprecedented” school year, I have stalled in my journey. I have desired to blend concepts of mindful/intuitive eating with the structure of an eating plan since April. This challenge is perfect!

      I teach also. Unfortunately stress-eating has become part of my world since I teach online now instead of in person. I appreciate any support I can get. A day that I do something healthy, is a plus for me

    Yes and yes. Thank you. I have started filling my plate (bowl…) and tracking the food before I take a single bite. It helps A LOT.

    This is very informative. I’m just starting my weight loss journey again and my biggest problem is the snacking while watching tv. Right before I received the notification for this article I had finished a pint of ice cream. Sad I know but I’m going to have to work out hard to get it off tonight.

    Quarantine had me all sorts of off track and then the insanity of the 2020-2021 school year set in and tracking and mindfulness and even exercise went right out the window. I’m at my heaviest weight ever and I am so disappointed in myself. I NEED this challenge!!!

    Great timing. I am glad to do this NOW, before the holidays. I have been hearing the term mindful eating and look forward to your practical tips to unpack the concept.

    No driveby eating…would readint at table while eating be considered a driveby?
