How Divorced Women Become Their Own Worst Enemy

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. It’s true!

We get all motivated to make a big change in our life, but we seem to hit a wall just when we think we can’t fail.

Usually that wall is You! When we visualize making big changes in our lives, we forget to change everything else in our daily routine that would sabotage our success. Habits that we have acquired over the years that seem harmless. Watching TV (even if it’s CNBC), shopping, running errands – insert your habit here.

A New Life requires new habits. Obviously your old habits didn’t encourage change before. So you have to change those old habits.

Start spending your time on activities that help you accomplish your Big Change. Focus. Research. Visualize. Reinforce.

Most big changes in life require new skills. Work on them. New habits. Work on them. New mind set. Work on it.

See it!  Live it!  Be it!

Don’t stand in your own way. The rest of the world will be glad to do that for you.

Use the CPR Approach – Consistence, Persistence and Resistance! It is in your control. Like Jeff Herring says, “be consistent in your actions, persistent in your drive and resistant to set backs and all those who may tell you that you can’t do it.”

Just make sure that with this new change in life, you create new productive habits to support it.

Happy Living!

How to Have Good Habits For Health

Here are some good habits to dial into your daily routine to promote healthy eating in your life. Not glamourous, but effective!

When you are already prepping veggies for something else, make enough of your favorites to store in a zipped bag in the refrigerator. Get one of those large containers of Greek plain 2% yogurt, and mix your favorite dip mix into it.  Now get in the habit of putting a plate of veggies on your counter in the kitchen. When you know you’re going to be in the area for a while, take out the dip. Eat some. You can leave the veggies out most of the day. Make a point to snack on them. (Of course, the dip can’t stay out all day.)

The yogurt dip is far more beneficial to your body that a sour cream version, and more stable. It will last longer at room temperature. And you won’t be able to tell the difference in taste. Seriously! Greek yogurt is a fabulous substitute for sour cream. And you get all the health and digestive benefits from the calcium and probiotics. And for some veggies, like carrots, the nutrients are better absorbed when eaten with fat, like that in the 2% yogurt dip.

Another good habit is to make a fruit salad in the morning and leave it on the counter with a fork near by. Prep once and eat all day.

These are great ways of getting kids, and yourself, to eat more fruits and vegetables. They tend to eat more when there is easy access. And so will you!

Get into the habit of making fruit and veggies easier to snack on. I say let’s make health easier on ourselves, shall we?

Happy Living!
