The Real Cost of “Free Food”

There are many variations to this story – perhaps it’s free samples at the grocery store or an abundance of different food at a party.  In the case of “free food,” the mind often defaults to how great the opportunity is.  However, in choosing “free food,” you may find that in exchange you are giving up something- perhaps sabotaging your commitment to your health goals or just that feeling of vitality.  In my case, I found myself feeling sluggish after all my “free food fun” in Costa Rica.

So how can we make more conscious decisions that best serve us?  The first step is to bring awareness and learning to the situation.  

Setting the Minimum – When doing less makes you more successful

Hey there!  How are those resolutions going?  If you’re like me with my past resolutions - by week 2, I could feel myself slipping, and by the final week of January, I had already given up.

The truth is I myself find big goals sexy.  I can see myself now… in 6-months, I have rock hard abs and I’m sporting a white bikini on beach having flown to Costa Rica on my private jet where I live on an island surrounded by dolphins.  So naturally, my goals this week are to: cut out all sugar and processed foods, to exercise 4 hours a day– and oh yeah ,did I mention I’m going to land 10 new clients to start paying off the price of the vacation?

Okayyyy, that’s a grand exaggeration – but you get the point!
