I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying the peace of the season. Yes, I said "peace"even with the hustle and bustle of Christmas parties, shopping, etc. we can CHOOSE to be grateful for all the blessings we have and feel peace, or we can allow ourselves to get overwhelmed and stressed out. This month's article gives tips on how to enjoy this time of year without the overeating! Read on.....
FYI: I will not be taking any private sessions from mid-December to mid-January. During this time I will be working on some new, exciting things coming for Tai Chi Flow and Calyco Healing in 2008! Stay Tuned ~ I'll tell you all about them in January's newsletter!
|Featured Article: Holiday Fit Tips
A few days ago as I was driving home I heard a great song on the radio. It goes to the tune of "It's the most wonderful
time of the year", but this parody sings, "it's the most fattening time of the year". It's very funny, here's an example of
one of the verses:
It's the lip-smackingist season of all
While you're shopping you're cheating
That junk at the mall
It s the heav- heaviest season of all!
It goes on from there, and the lyrics are accompanied by occasional warnings from Richard Simmons to "not eat that!"
Many of the Energy Healing sessions for my clients are focused on weight loss. During a session we can clear many of the underlying issues associated with overeating. But since it is for some (doesn't need to be for us!) truly "the most fattening time of the year", to help keep us on track, here is a list of healthy holiday tips:
- At social gatherings, mingle with guests. Find interesting people to talk to, and avoid standing next to the food.
- Give fattening food gifts to the food bank.
- Stay active during the holidays. This is the time of year when you most need to exercise. Try not to use excuses like cold weather or being too busy.
- Plan activities that take the focus off food, such as tree trimming, cross-country skiing or caroling.
- Set a reasonable goal of simply maintaining your present weight over the holidays. That way, when New Year's rolls around, you can focus on healthy eating habits and exercise rather than beating yourself up for 'blowing it' over the holidays.
- If you happen to go on a binge, treat it as a thing of little importance. Get right back on track the following day.
- Avoid serving foods "family style" (putting them out on the table). Dish up plates at the stove.
- Allow yourself a few indulgences, but keep a close eye on portion sizes. In other words, go ahead and have that slice of pecan pie, but don't have a piece that's too big.
By the way, if you are interested in hearing this song, I had to search a bit, but I finally found it online at www.themadmusicarchive.com. It is on an album with several other songs by Bob Rivers called Twisted Christmas.

OR, you may choose to book a motel room in town (St. George, UT). The Spa is on the outskirts of town, about a 10-15 min. drive from most motels.
