How to avoid Holiday weight gain!

Dollarphotoclub_74428990Christmas is just around the corner! Are you feeling the christmas spirit yet? I am. The christmas movies on TV, Christmas songs on the radio, Santa in the malls, festive lights everywhere, people shopping, company parties, etc. It truly is a wonderful time of the year to be able to feel the joy in people’s heart.

We have all the good emotions but what about the gringing feeling of christmas parties and dinners. Lots of chocolates, alcohol, food, food and more food. Did I mention FOOD! I thought by mentioning FOOD it would bring awareness that the next few weeks leading to christmas is a time where people pack on the pounds FAST. It literally creeps up on you and before you know it your gut is hanging over your pants and your clothes are snugger….BUT it doesn’t have to be this way. THERE IS A WAY! I have the perfect solution for you!

Keep reading. I promise this is GOOD! It will save you the devastation of extra unwanted weight!

1. NEVER ARRIVE HUNGRY!!!

Try to have a nutritious snack beforehand. If you do arrive hungry, drink some water to fill up before filling your plate.

2. Distract yourself!

There’s more to a holiday party than food. Don’t look at the party as just a food event. Enjoy your friends company or dancing. Focus on something other than food. Focus on a good conversations or play with the children.

3. Be mindful when you eat!
Chew more slowly and stay in the present. If you find this is difficult put your fork down between every bite. Before you know it, you would have eaten a lot less and stayed full longer.

4. Keep your portions small

Use the smallest plate available and don’t stack your food.  Fill your plate with as much greens as you can with some meat for protein and pick fresh fruits and vegetables. Watch out for sauces and dips.

5. Limit Alcohol
Avoid drinking too much alcohol at holiday parties. It’s not just about calories but about control. If you drink a lot you, won’t have as much control over what you eat.

6. Be selective with your Sweets
Limit your indulgences to small portions and only what looks appealing to you. You’re better off taking a small portion of a single dessert than piling your plate with several treats you plan to try.

7. Bring Your Own Treats
Whether you’re going to a friend’s party or an office potluck, consider bringing a low-calorie treat that you know you’ll enjoy. Bringing your own dessert will make the more fattening alternatives less tempting.

8. Walk It Off or Zumba it off!
Make a new holiday tradition: the family walk or the family Zumba dance!! Besides burning some extra calories, this will get everyone away from the food for awhile and enjoy each others company and SUPER FUN!!!

Dreams really do come true. Many people say “Hard Work Pays Off” which is true but I believe that when you put TIME, ENERGY and MONEY into what you really want and into your dreams/vision, no matter what IT WILL COME TRUE!! Successful people don’t make excuses! They don’t listen to naysayers! They are not Lazy! They have a GOAL and they set out to achieve it. People don’t know what it feels to walk in your shoes. People don’t know what is best for you! Surround yourself with people who are like minded like you, who believe in you and your dreams/vision, who have incredible positive energy and will be there for you to help you without wanting anything in return. When you find these special people, you treat them like family and appreciate them in every way as they are sent from heaven up above to support you, guide you, love you unconditionally and who truly truly truly want the best for you and your growth. We are all here to help transform the planet. It is our birth right to learn, evolve and ascend higher so that people can grow with you and be the best version of themselves in hopes that they will also find their purpose.

Think BIG! Dream BIG! Get BIG! NEVER settle! Keep your standards higher then the norm and the people will come gladly and happily. FEAR is just an illusion! Break the fear and let your inner light shine through.

If anyone is looking for a way out, is stuck, doesn’t know what direction to take, wants some direction and guidance, then email me and we can set up a complimentary consultation to review your life goals. No charge. Just some light to shine your path. Start NOW! Can’t wait to here from you :D

Motivation

YOU are made for GREATNESS!

I love to reflect a lot on my growth from where it all began for me (winter of 2012, me, myself, and I with my thoughts and a heart beat telling myself “is this what becomes of me?”) and not knowing almost 3 years later that I would be the person I am today. Who ever knew this journey would lead me in the direction of who I am today.

michelle_soares_possibleThis journey never came easy and the fact that I literally had to pull myself together and take with me the pieces that I needed to get started was the most difficult thing I had to do for myself. When I was at my darkest point, I couldn’t see light, opportunity, possibility, hope or even think of dreaming. It was nothing but loneliness, heavy sadness, a loss of life, a disconnection between me and the world….. BUT there was something in me that kept drawing my attention inward. It felt like a very low dim light in me (like a candle flame ready to burn out) that kept me with some sort of hope. Hope that I couldn’t grasp but later come to understand that the dim light was my soul NOT ready to give up! My soul (my heart) was what was left of me to carry on through the days. Just knowing that my heart was trying to tell me something was all I needed to give myself a second chance and turn my life around. Once I shifted my energy that is when everything changed…..( and now I will save more for later) ;) BUT

this is my message to YOU:

Have no intention of looking back on your life unless its only to see how far you have come. There is no point to relive your life. You lived it, so move on! Its not worth living out the same fears and regrets and  reliving old patterns of thoughts and habits that were built from the past because they just create a prison within you suffocating your dreams and disconnection who you really are. Its these false beliefs that cause your dreams to die with you and keep you from creating a life you want!

To me life is all about creation. Have you ever given yourself the opportunity to create something beyond yourself? Something of your own making that is pure, beautiful and outstanding.

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 9.29.16 PMThe only way for your dreams/goals to be accomplished, is to push past your limitations that you created for yourself and for you to push past the barriers that others have created for you as well. Its crucial that you believe in yourself and all that you are because even if you help 1 person then that already has an impact on yourself and the world. Just imagine with your own uniqueness the difference you can make around you. Thank goodness we were all created differently. If we were all alike then this world would be the same…BORING!! This is why you follow your heart and not of others.

It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, all that matters is you’re doing something authentic, and unique that helps people. You cannot allow yourself to be intimidated by others. Just be inspired by your own creation and let the work speak for itself. Whether your work affects 7 people or 7 billion, Earth will be a better place and in the end that’s all that matters.  What matters is YOU!
