Coach Yourself Thinnish: How will losing weight affect…all things NOT you?

What effect will losing weight have on the wider systems in your life?  Wider systems include but are not limited to family, friends, work, neighborhood.

No man is an island,
Entire of itself … John Donne

It is true, no-(wo)man is an island unto herself, and how she changes ripples out and affects her systems.  It is wise to consider how losing weight, creating a healthy lifestyle will impact on and inform your family, your friends, your job, your community.

How will healthier food choices, new ways of cooking, your becoming slimmer, fitter and healthier affect your family?  Your friends?  Your circles of people?  Whether your answer is good, bad or neutral, it’s good to know.

Yes, it’s useful to know where and how your circle of influence begins and ends, where your circle of support begins and ends.

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: End Temptation Now!

Temptation On the Rise? ~ contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Temptation On the Rise? ~ contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

The amount of temptation outside the home is enormous. First there’s the office, and the lure of the overflowing bowls of candy in the mailroom, the enticing chocolate chip cookies that your cubicle mate is munching on (rather loudly, I might add), the vending machines that call out your name on the hour every half hour whose voice you mistake for a real friend. (Just call out my name and you know wherever I am, I’ll come running …)

Then you head to a restaurant for dinner and the waiter places the bread basket right in front of you, he drizzles extra virgin olive oil on your plate – even though you’ve clearly asked him not to – as he announces the specials of the evening. Sometimes there are food vendors on the streets to taunt you and, of course, the ubiquitous fast food restaurants. And then there is the unexpected – the samples at the grocery store!

How much temptation can one person take before they crack? Not that much!!! It is therefore essential that you make your home a safe haven. A place free of the devil’s food!

It’s true, Tushkateers*, Devotees of Our Lady of Weight Loss, unfortunately will power a.k.a. your want power muscle does not come with an endless supply of energy.  Again, you can only say “No, Thank You” so many times before a “yes” manages its way to your plate.  It’s not wise to expend your precious energy on controlling yourself in your own home.

1.  Think about it.
2.  Clear out the pantry, the fridge, the hiding places of tempting foods that do not support your goals.3.  Stock your fridge with the “right” stuff a.k.a. fruits, veggies a.k.a. real food!

Sometimes it’s that simple!

Weighty Confession: Aspirin and a Loaf of Bread

Your Gain Is My Pain!  Contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Your Gain Is My Pain! Contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Dear Our Lady of Weight Loss,
Forgive Me, For I Have Sinned!

I woke up with a killer headache.

For whatever reason, I stumbled into the kitchen for relief (aspirin and a loaf of bread, a mighty combo?).  There it was…the challah bread…that my “friend” brought to dinner (to tempt me? to derail me?).

I should have, could have sent the leftover bread home with her, but I did not. Instead, at 5:00 a.m. this morning, banging head in one hand, knife in the other, cutting, sliver after sliver, until half a loaf was gone.  Into “thin” air, more or less.

Did my headache disappear into “thin” air, as well?  Yes!  Was it the aspirin or the challah?  Hmmm…

All Is Forgiven.
Move On!

Lighten your load.  Confess!  Disclose your weighty transgression!

Dysfunctional Chef: Seconds Anyone? Back-on-the-Bandwagon Baked Beans

Yesterday afternoon, I decided to try out a new vegan “chicken” dish.  I was so sure that it would be great, that I called a few friends and said, “Come on over for dinner.  I’m making a vegan meal and I promise that it will be, at the very least mediocre.”  We laughed, but in the end the laugh was on me!

Lo’ n’ behold, three-quarters of the way through, I tasted the sauce and I was like…”YUK!”  And now what?  People are coming and this dish doesn’t even live up to its mediocre promises!  What to do?

Our Lady of Weight Loss to the rescue.  She pulled the following recipe out of her Habit, and we got busy dicing, chopping, stirring and humming a happy tune!

Here, Second Chances Back-on-the-Bandwagon Baked Beans, giving Second Chance February a whole new meaning!

Ingredients:

3 strips Turkey Bacon
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 cup shallots, diced3 cloves garlic, diced
1 Tbs. chile powder
1 Tbs. ground cumin
1 – 14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 – 14 1/2 oz. can pinto beans, drained
1 – 14 1/2 oz. can red kidney beans, drained
2 Tbs. hot sauce, smoky flavor (chipotle will do well!!!)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
salt n’ pepper to taste

Directions:

Cook turkey bacon as directed on the package.
In a large pot, combine olive oil, shallots, and garlic; cook on medium heat until shallots are soft (about 5 minutes, more or less).
Crumble cooked turkey bacon; add with remaining ingredients.
Bring to boil and then simmer for 45 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Dishes like this are just as good if not better the second day, so I make enough to last!!!

Serve with rice and a salad, and you’ve got a 5 yum healthy happening!

Enjoy!!!

Deliciously yours,
Janice
