Hey guys!

As I discussed last week in my post: Is your Body Image Holding you back?, my goal for the next 2 months is to set myself up so I feel confident in my bathing suit for my trip to Mexico.

One of the main obstacles towards this is: I’m a foodie!  I LOVE food.

I’m Italian and food has always been an important part of my life.  Every day I look forward to preparing meals or going out to nice dinners with my husband or friends.  I’m lucky to live in such a lovely city like NYC where I’m exposed to the best varieties of food on a daily basis!  How can I say no?!

The issue is to find the line.

It’s not a bad thing that I love food.  I just need to learn to make smarter choices if I’m going to lose weight in the next 2 months.

Losing weight is not just about looking and feeling good.  Having extra weight on your body is a risk factor for all the major diseases and can ruin the active zestful life I am living.

It’s important to realize that you are in control of your journey.  Enjoy Life.  Go out to Eat.  Laugh with friends and family.  Just know your limit and remember moderation!

You are in the driver’s seat.  The purpose of this weeks webinar-  “2012 Change Begins, best year ever”  is to teach you the proper tools to ‘stay on the road.’

Here’s some Tips that I will be focusing on:

-Make one habit change per week :  Each week we talk(webinar) about food and the habits we have around the foods.  A habit I suggest is to add a daily smoothie into your morning routine.    This will help reduce the impact stress has on the body while adding protein, enhanced leucine,  and fiber.  A daily smoothie will help fuel your body and help get your day off to a great start.  I suggest to try Shaklee’s Cinch Shake–See how “smoothly” the rest of your day can go ; )

– Have a Routine:  Create menus for the week when you eat at home and know how many nights you will be eating out.  Here’s my tip for when you eat out: don’t scarf down your food like you’ve never seen food before.  Eat slowly and realize this is just a meal to nourish your body.    To slow myself down I think of they lovely food I’m eating (for example I was eating a delicious dish with pumpkin squash yesterday) and I started to think about how I could incorporate that new veggie into my home meals for next week.  It become a game and fun project. I came up with the idea of a pumpkin squash casserole which with vegetable broth and 4 or 5 vegetables that everyone loved!

-Don’t let yourself feel deprived.  If you really want to eat something when you are out suggest you and your friend split it and try just a bite.  If you don’t let yourself have a particular item this will just come to haunt you!  Realize you are in control of your choices and chose to be healthy and want to nourish your body with the best foods possible.

Implementing these changes into your daily life will put you in the driver’s seat and help you lose weight and love your body! 

We can do it together.

Mine used to!

In March I am going to Oaxaca, Mexico with my husband.  My husband is an artist and is showing his work there. I am extremely excited but also a little anxious.

Warm weather= Beach= Bathing suit= Ahh!

No bulky sweaters in Mexico to cover winter weight-full exposure!

In the past, I was extremely judgmental of my body. I would look in the mirror and only see flaws.

My belly was too big, my arms were jiggly, and I couldn’t fit into my summer jeans. Oy vey!

As I’ve gotten older (and wiser!) I’ve learned to approach my weight journey with love and respect for my body shape instead of harsh criticism.

I accept and love my body (I have great curves!) and my focus is now to live a healthy life.

Here are a few steps you can follow to learn to stop judging yourself and love your body:

1. To begin, all the critical judgment I was doing to myself became like a war in my body and the war only caused more stress and tension.

I am helping reduce this tension by meditating. Every night I set time aside for myself to meditate. Starting from my feet I tense and release my muscles. As I release each body part, I appreciate it. For example– I inhale and tense both feet for a few seconds and then release. As I release I say my feet are wonderful they allow me to take long walks on the streets of new York.

The when I get to my belly- Tense that area, Release it and say, I am so happy that my belly allows me to digest all the good food I love so I have energy to enjoy my life and so on.

Breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Start with your feet and end with your face.

2. Body love part two, Don’t fight ! Look at what has worked for you in the past. Avoid the word ‘should’ word. For me, I don’t have time or desire to cook 3 meals a day- and I have learned this through experience.

In the past using the Cinch program, two shakes a day, a snack, and a dinner has worked well in my busy life. I find I have a lot of energy and I don’t have the highs and low that blood sugar bouncing causes me. When I measure my waist after 2 weeks, I see the inches coming off. The Cinch program makes my life a lot easier!


I am teaching a group tele-seminar from  January 17 to March 6.  This seminar will cover tools and techniques to get the body you want by learning to love it.

It’s not too late to sign up.  Members of the class receive a discount on all Cinch products!

Wearing a bathing suit and traveling are great incentives to lose weight but it is more important to learn to enjoy and love my body whatever size it is.

 Are your goals for the New Year like mine?

Whittle your middle!

Feel better and look younger!

If so, then it’s time for us to reconnect with ourselves and realize we need to implement permanent changes that won’t sabotage our health or our self-esteem. No more setting ourselves up for failure by wanting quick immediate results. It’s all about an overall healthy lifestyle.

Let’s make 2012 your best year for change.

Join me for 8 weeks as I coach and inspire you to increase your motivation and allow change to come easily by the support of a group.

The class will include:

Reconnect to your spirit: Do yoga or meditative exercise. I will teach you how to take time for yourself everyday: the busier I am the more I need meditation in my life!

Reconnect to your spirit: Every day journal what you are eating, when you are eating, and how are feel after you eat. This will help you recognize your bad habits and notice if you have any food allergies.

Reconnect to your energy: Are you tired more often than you like? Are you missing out on something because of it? We will take a look at your lifestyle habits: when are you eating and are you taking supplements? I will teach you what supplements are best for your individual body and lifestyle.

• Reconnect to your taste buds: We will go over what Cravings are an indication your body is missing something. And I will teach you which supplements support your body and enhance weight loss

• Reconnect to your taste buds: Plant based diets are awesome! I will teach you easy tricks to replace bagels, sandwiches, and other non-nutritious items. For example, consider a bagel vs a sweet potato. The bagel is usually quite bland so we add butter, cream cheese, onions or lox to give it flavor. Instead each a sweet potato which is naturally sweet. This will help you feel food and provides important vitamins and nutrients.

According to research, the best ways to lose weight and stay inspired are:

-With a group

-Reconnecting with your core beliefs

With a group you are accountable for your weekly actions. And when you are conscious of your actions and reconnect with yourself your make better decisions.  These 2 actions might be the missing link to why you are not obtaining your goals!
