EVERY GREAT DAY STARTS THE NIGHT BEFORE
It’s a cute notion that things will turn out exactly as they should, without deliberately putting some effort into making your goals a reality. Sadly (or not, depending on which way you look at it), your goals will only be met with intention, planning, and some actual doing.
I spend about 30 minutes each evening preparing for the following day, and I devote about 10 minutes of that time to my nutrition. The rest of the time is given to planning my exercise, mindset, and scheduling. It’s a small sacrifice of time, and well spent, especially when I consider the benefit of a well-ordered day that has been mindfully considered. Even if things go pear-shaped, as they often do, I still have a great guideline to work with because I've made my intentions very clear!
So how does a nutritionist prepare for a great day as far as food is concerned? Well, every evening I decide what I will eat the following day. I take into consideration preparation time, when I will eat and how much, and then I’ll put that information in my tracker and adjust the amounts according to my macros. Making those decisions in a calm state of mind, without the distraction of hunger, ensures better choices and follow through. The next day, all I have to do is obey the tracker!
And how does a nutritionist ensure there is consistency with supplements? Each evening I measure out my supplements into little containers for the following day so they’re ready to go. It’s pretty easy and very effective!
Whether part of a limited time group or continuing month-to-month coaching, our coaching clients have great things to say about their coaching experiences!
Thank you Sabrina for helping me to get on and stay on track. Thanks for being accessible in my time of need. Thank you for helping me burst through plateaus!
I want to send a big THANK YOU to my coach Lisa Carroll! I have been working with Lisa for almost 3 weeks and WOW! I am absolutely amazed by the progress I have seen in this short time. I have lost 15.4 pounds, stopped taking medication for GERD, seen a significant reduction in hair loss and now fit in a pair of jeans I haven’t worn in 11 years. I started Keto last year about this time on my own and did great for the first few months, but then I got lazy and slacked off. I tried multiple times to start up again on my own without success and finally made the decision that I needed someone to help hold me accountable, that’s where Lisa comes in. She has been exactly what I needed to get myself back on track!
I have the best coach ever! Jessyca has helped me in so many ways! Yesterday was a milestone! 50 pounds lost and the lowest I’ve weighed in seven years! I’m done from a size 1X to a size 10 in six months! I’m not done with my keto journey yet, but oh the work I have had to put in. This has not been easy! At all! I have had to text Jessyca a zillion times with things that make me want to binge and fall off of the deep end. I’ve had to learn to deal with the reason I had become overweight in the first place and how not to go back to that place again. I've had to fight through feeling like a problem and also feeling 'less than', both feelings that cause me to binge. All of those contributed to who I was before. Our weekly phone calls are the highlight of my week! They deal with the 'why' I got this way and the behaviors that lead me down the path to that person I was. Now, though, I feel like my outside is beginning to match my inside, the person God made me, and that’s an amazing feeling! As for my goal, I’m getting closer to fitting into a dress for my sons wedding! With my understanding, inspirational and amazing coach’s help, I know I can do this! I thank God for Jessyca and for His work through her!
I don’t know if I can adequately express how much has shifted for me since working with Keto Coach Michelle Hurn, R.D., L.D! Initially Michelle helped get me on track by clarifying the appropriate amount of food I should be eating (and in what proportions) for my active lifestyle. But the real magic was further along – when Michelle kindly but clearly helped me challenge long held, rigid disordered eating beliefs and behaviors that I didn’t even realize I still had. I am beyond grateful to have separated from old beliefs and behaviors that were holding me back, even when I was compliant on the ketogenic meal plan. I am able to be more emotionally present for myself, my family and my professional life in a way that has brought me tremendous peace of mind. I am enjoying my meals now, but hardly thinking about food at all anymore - and that is a true miracle in my life!
I started Keto after watching three people I love die due to complications from diabetes. I had gained 50lbs since running a half marathon just two years ago. When the scale stalled, I didn’t want to give up so I started looking for a coach. After reviewing Michelle Hurn’s profile, her story spoke to me. I signed up immediately, downloaded her brilliant book and set up my first session.
What I have realized in the past two months of working together is that the scale (though moving in the right direction) has become less of a driver for me. I have noticed a HUGE change in my anxiety and my skin is amazing. I feel focused, full, satisfied, clear and happy. My glucose levels are completely stable, my sleep has never been better, my heart rate is lower when working out, my inflammation seems to have completely gone away and I no longer have a “food baby” at the end of each day.
I have been so fortunate to learn from a true expert in this field. I am seeing the truly unlimited potential of my body through fuel. I can’t wait to get stronger, leaner, and healthier. I know with Michelle’s help I will FINALLY lose all my “baby weight” before my kids leave for college in the next four years.
I cannot recommend Michelle Hurn enough. She has changed my life.
