Autumn Weight Loss: Christmas looming

Rudolf

Rudolf

Hello again, it’s been a few weeks since my last Autumn Weight Loss post and now Christmas is looming. EEK!

To save repetition, I am cutting down my Blog Posts to monthly intervals, however that seems to make my resolve a little weaker especially at this fairly crazy time of year.

My report: I’ve managed to maintain my original weight loss and lose another 3 pounds. It’s been quite tough because the lack of daily or weekly accountability seemed to allow small Self-Sabotaging naughtiness to creep into my daily routine. I must address this very speedily as I gained a pound this week. (but also lost it again!)

Folks, it is difficult. But big changes of habit require big effort.

My Healthy Living: What have I done that is not so good?

  1. I have stopped buying my carrots (to nibble on between my meals) for about 2 weeks. Why? Because I think I must have got bored with them. (It is now re-addressed).
  2. I have been having alcohol tipples on a more regular basis; I had cut it back to once or twice a week. That old habit creeping in seems to make me less in control of maintaining good treat choices; ain’t that a surprise?!

My Healthy Living: What have I done that is good?

  1. I have been going to the gym 3x a week: interval training. I’ve been using Joe Wicks Lean in 15 book ; it shares great recipes and Workout routines. I see him on the TV adverts just now promoting his book for Christmas. It’s good, it appeals and I enjoy the recipes. ( I want to be an affiliate Joe!)  But, I need to work harder on my routine this coming fortnight. Do I fancy that? Not one bloody bit. But I will.
  2. I have been self-treating more regularly with EFT Tapping.; here’s a link to my Weight Loss Chat and EFT Tap video.  Why am I doing this? I help people to better manage Stress, Anxiety, Emotional Trauma, Overwhelm.  And, well, my life is proving to be a bit too busy and some challenges have raised their ugly heads; a fair sense of Overwhelm is around. I am becoming rattled by all that I think I need to do; much is going on. Tapping really helps me to keep a handle on my default traits. (I can recognise them now and don’t like how I feel when they reach out and bite me every now and then). Big challenges require big effort: Mind, Body and Spirit.

3 Top Tips for surviving Christmas indulgance

  1. Don’t Stress, Plan for Success.
  2. Don’t blow it sky high for days; get back on track fast after Boxing Day.
  3. Remember that some folks can get away with indulgances, those of us with more addictive natures just can’t.

Vital Tip:

Put in a little bit of effort. Self beating, especially at this time of year, is not useful when success can be slow or difficut, and do not use The Festive Season as the best excuse in the world to go and buggar up all your good work.

So I ask myself:

  • Can I maintain this Healthy Living (healthy eating) till I go away in Mid December to House Sit in France?
  • Can I maintain a weight status quo over a few heavy eating and drinking days at Christmas?

One thing for sure when I eat better, drink less alcohol, do regular exercise, I feel good.

Next Blog: I hope to share the success of my friend Clare who has been incredibly successful in her weight loss programme over the last short few years. She is going to do a Q and A for me to share with you. I expect you will be impressed.

Enjoy the next few weeks and I will continue to be accountable. My next post may be from France.

Happy Christmas. Joyeax Noel.

Top Tips to help choose Forgiveness

Love and light

Love and Light

A wake up call this morning prompted me to write a post sharing tips to help those in need of some forgiveness to Self or forgiveness to others. The act of forgiving can be a crucial emotion to address when self-healing is desired. The Emotional Scale shows that if you run a Mindset running high on Unforgiveness then you are experiencing a highly debilitating and very self-sabotaging emotion. When you move beyond the state of being unforgiving, then you and those around you benefit; the healing vibration ripples out encompassing many.

Why am I writing this today?

Because I have just received a phone call asking if I was coming to do my EFT Talk at CancerWise in Chichester.  I had not put it in my diary. So no I was unable to give my Talk.

Later in the morning I realised that I had indeed put it in my diary.  However when I checked this morning I was ‘a week ahead’! I remember smiling as I checked the diary and had a free day to just get on with the little household things.

Well there you go; beat yourself with stick time. And I’d just been thinking that I was succeeding in allowing a gentler flow, less overwhelm, into my life!

I felt ghastly when I realised what had happened but it prompted this Post.

I am not going to over-egg my mishap. I recognised that I could angst horribly all day over this so I took 5 minutes and Tapped. I do not tap daily but I spent 5 minutes doing some EFT and chose to allow myself to be off the hook.

How to overcome shortcomings

  • Self-Sabotage and the Inner Voice critic can really punish so find something e.g. EFT Tapping, which allows you to forgive yourself; then move on to enjoying or fulfilling the rest of your day.
  • Stress and anxiety are part of our lives but if a panic attack or high anxiety is about to dominate then I suggest- you take time to BREATHE and maintain calm; then move on to enjoying or fulfilling the rest of your day.

Are you guilty of being unforgiving?

My belief is that if you are still reading my Post then you will be able to forgive and move on. Those who feel wholly justified in their state of unforgiveness probably won’t actually be reading on because they are unaware that there is hope, or a need to hope, for better.

Top Tips to help Forgiveness included in this Post

I am sharing the following Post, written about 2 years ago. It is full of useful information:

  1. Hints and Tips to encourage Forgiveness which includes
  2. Are you big enough to forgive? 
Raising emotional vibration

Raising emotional vibration

3.Where do you vibrate on the Emotional Vibrational Scale?

As Christmas time is now fast approaching when better to start the necessary work to release Unforgiveness.

It will be a huge Win, Win for

  • You
  • Those you love
  • And those you mingle with in your daily life

Because: the Ripple Effect just keeps on growing.

When better to spread Love and Light than during the Festive Season.
