With a New Year comes a big push for a lot of us, to make changes. Positive lifestyle changes, usually… But just how positive are they?
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. A chance to rest, indulge and be with the ones you love. I was very lucky to have all the above and I miss the time off, care free activities, the laughs, hugs and friendly faces already.
However I don’t, as a lot of you won’t probably, miss the food and drink.
As always, in the Harvey Lawrence household, the food and alcohol was free flowing and gladly topped up, whenever there was room. If there is one thing we do well – it’s indulgence. So I didn’t stick to my meal plans or guidance from Erin.
But, for the first time in a long time, I didn’t feel guilty about it.
When you make long-term goals and know that you are in it for the long run, I think your mind-set changes.
I allowed myself to have anything that I chose to eat or drink, at any time it was offered. My choices were still informed and realistic but I let go of the hang-up of ‘if I eat this, it’s bad for me’ or ‘I wonder where this sits on the GL index’.
As a result, I am back on course with no remorse. No hang-ups and incredibly positive about my goals. Meals are easy and fun to create. My energy levels are getting back on track and the time off has given me the headspace to plan the next few steps.
If anyone read my article in BOUNCE magazine on detoxing and nutrition, you’ll know that I am very anti fad diets and depriving detox rituals. There will be no drastic measures in this corner. I don’t want to see changes in my body in just 7 days… Only to see the reverse of those changes, in the following 7.
So I urge you to be the best you can be. Be all you can be. And enjoy looking forward, far beyond the diet sachets, celebrity diets or the latest craze online – promoting a ‘New You’.
My time with Naked Nutrition has taught me that the old you, was probably just fine and all it needed was to be seen for its true potential.
I will be meeting Erin on 25 February to catch up on my progress. By that time, I will have built an exercise plan into my weekly routine that suits me – as per Erin’s guidance – and I will hopefully be able to see clear changes, in both my mental and physical abilities.
Important side note & a bit of maths:
It’s worth noting that 25 February will be my third session with Erin. That means that after seeing Erin, I will have paid a total fee of £130 over the course of 4 months. (that’s right – I am paying) That’s £32.50 per month, which is less than £10 per week.
Now, this is not a hard sell but if you are reading this and you are looking for a therapy that can be tailored to your needs, providing invaluable information about your body and lifestyle, and improve both simultaneously… This is it.
