3 Tips to Eat Clean This Year

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to Eat Clean or Lose Weight or to Take Care of yourself this year? If so, you are in good company, according to iQuanti, over 63 Million people searched Google on how to get healthy for the new year.   It’s pretty clear that most people know that being healthy is important, but life just seems to get in the way and we go back to our old (unhealthy) habits.

Monday I kick off a 5 Day Clean Eating Challenge in my private Facebook Group, because one thing that I do know is that having a place to be held accountable and feel supported is important when reaching your goals.  If you need the accountability and support, feel free to join the group, but I also wanted to share some tips that have helped me develop my Clean Eating Lifestyle years ago and these 3 tips still hold true for me today to keep me on track.

1. Cook & Prepare your meals: I know this may be a challenge for you, but this is a great habit to create and strengthen. When you cook your own meals, you control what goes into them, you eat at home so you save money, and you can also get creative with trying new recipes.

Here are some simple Clean Eating Recipes that you can try. 


2. Avoid Packaged and Processed Foods: Stay away from “junk” food, which are packed with tons of preservatives and chemicals. Most people fall victim to snacking on junk food. Instead, aim to find healthy snack options to keep you full and fueled.

Here are some healthy snack options to try 


3. Plan Your Week: Many people fail to stay on track, because they fail to plan. Before the challenge begins, pull out your calendar and get a better idea of what you have going on this week. If your mornings are rushed, ensure that you have a healthy breakfast ready to grab and go in the morning to eat at work, like overnight oats. If you have a work lunch, research the restaurant to find a healthy option or ask the person coordinating the lunch to order you a salad. If you’re going to be busy at night, pack a dinner with you or meal prep some dinners (or any other meals) so that way you will have a healthy meal in your fridge. Here are some meal prep tips for you.



Hopefully these tips will help you stay on track for 2018 to develop a Clean Eating Lifestyle and reach your goals!

Happy Healthy New Year!

Can you believe that 2013 is here?! I am super pumped for the new year and I feel that it will be a great year for all of us.  I know many people use this time to set goals, especially around health and fitness. However, I know that these are some of the hardest goals to keep, but some of the most important. If your health and your body isn’t optimal, it can affect other areas of your life. So, setting goals around health and fitness are important.  Recently, I wrote an ebook where I share 10 steps to setting goals and making them stick for the year. One of the steps I mention is after you write down your goals, think about what are the things that you need to do ASAP to get started on that goal.

If you have a goal to lose weight or eat healthy or to get fit & healthy this year, write down 5 things that you can do between now and the next 72 hours to jumpstart that goal.  Some things you could do:

  • Clean out your fridge and pantry of junk food
  • Purchase new workout shoes and clothes
  • Purchase a new fitness program, like Insanity or Body Combat
  • Schedule your workouts in your calendar
  • Find a Workout Buddy

The list can go on and on, but you want to do these things in 72 hours.  This will help to give you a burst of momentum and by completing this list, you will already have a sense of accomplish to keep going with your goals.  If you are looking for a new fitness program or help with eating healthier this year, send me an email at and we can discuss some options for you.  Also, if you want to read all 10 steps to setting goals and making them stick for this year, you can download it for free by clicking here.

Happy & Healthy New Year!

Welcome 2012!!!

Well, 2012 is here and I am so excited! This year I have set some goals that will definitely push me outside of my comfort zone, because I know that is where my success lies.  So I’m going for it.  Yes, I do truly believe that I will accomplish them because I have put some things in place to help me to achieve them. If you have set new year resolutions or goals, you can implement these into your life as well to help you reach your goals!

1. Write Them Down: There is power in actually taking the time write down what you want to accomplish.  When you write them down you are actually thinking through what you want and you are able to map out what success will look like for you.

2. Review Your Goals Daily: When you have your goals written and fully developed, you want to create a way to make sure that you are able to visually see your goals every day.  I have a white board in my home office where I have a section that has my goals written down. There is also a section that I use to track my progress. For example, this year I want to sign 25 new coaching clients and add 10 new coaches to my network to work as coaches on my team.  I have “NEW COACHES” and “NEW CLIENTS” written on my board and under each one is a big fat zero.  Everyday that I look at those zeros it makes me work harder to working to changing those zeros to a 10 and a 25.  I also wrote my goals down on a post it note and it near my night stand so I can see them when I wake up and when I go to sleep.

3. Get a Success Accountability Partner: Yes, writing your goals and reading them daily is huge, but when you are able to find someone who you can tell your goals to and then will work with you to help keep you accountable, you increase your chances for success by a lot.  Find someone who will be committed to your success and you do the same for that person. Set up time to check in with eachother once a week to share your updates to your goals. Also, don’t hesitate to touch base daily with a text or FB message to keep you motivated or to share a concern, success, challenge or just to say hi.

4. Check In With Yourself: When you set out to achieve your goals, you want to take time every month to see where you are with reaching your goals.  This will let you know what you need to be doing or what you need to stop doing.  In one of my previous posts, I talk about the questions that you can ask yourself.

The key is to make your goals, commit to them, find someone to keep you accountable, and then monitor and track your progress. Anyone can set a goal, but it is those who actually take action and commit to their goals are the ones who actually succeed. So which person are you going to be in 2012 – one of goal setting or one of goal achieving!

Here’s to your success!
