Weight Loss Frustrations

by Rochelle Griffin

Trying to lose weight can be frustrating. You work and work at it with, what feels like sometimes, little results. In truth, with weight loss, you must be patient. I know that the TV boasts of different “quick” plans, but it’s setting you up. Many people don’t realize that those testimonials are NOT the norm & are often done under strict watch so amazing stories can be compiled and told.

When you are doing it on your own, be patient. You have to be.

Take it a day at a time…eat well, work out, drink enough water, get enough sleep, & control your stress. Stay off the scale…weighing weekly at the most. You have to trust the process. Be sure that you have a support system in place for those frustrating moments when you want to quit. It may have not happened yet, but it will…promise. 

If you truly are doing all of these things (honesty with yourself is crucial here) and are still struggling, it’s time to look at other culprits including adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, food sensitivities, & hormone imbalance. Any and all of these can cause your body to resist weight loss.

Your patience may be tried but the journey will be so worth it in the end. Do not give up. Do not quit. Answers are out there if you’re willing to look.

Time to Set Goals: 4 Easy Tips to Get Started

by Rochelle Griffin

It’s that time of year. Millions of people are taking stock of their lives and what they’ve accomplished in the past 12 months. Was 2014 all that you dreamed it would be? For some, it’s a resounding YES…to which I say Amen! For others, it’s kind of depressing because they never set goals. Or worse yet, they did but never followed through.

Once people get over the “ugh…another year as passed” feeling, they tend to start to think about their goals for the upcoming year. Most of these goals surround weight loss and/or business growth intentions. The problem is that the ideas never make from the head to paper. They remain in the head…where actually they aren’t goals…they are just wishes.

So this year…do you plan on making wishes or setting goals?

It’s really not difficult to set them. In fact there’s plenty of resources available to help you. I’m going to give my 4 quick and easy steps to goal setting that I use. Yep, I’m taking stock of 2014 myself.

1. Write your goals down on paper. This makes them real. Don’t worry about how big they are at this point. Don’t worry if they make your hands sweat, your stomach turn, and you have no clue how they’ll happen.

2. Write a date that you plan to accomplish them by. Yep, a deadline

3. Have an accountability group. It really helps to have more than just a single person to help support you.

For example, f you want to lose weight or get in shape, find a weight loss group. In fact, I’m getting ready to open a free 5-day clean eating group starting January 5. By the way, this could be the jumpstart that you need in the New Year. You can register at http://www.rochellegriffin.com/cleaneatingchallengeinfo

If you want to start a business or take your business to the next level, find a coach that can help you do just that.

4. Break down your BIG goal into monthly goals, then break down the goals into weekly action steps. This is the step that take away the overwhelm of your big goal. For example, if you want to lose 50 pounds, it can feel daunting…so much so that some people will never even get started. Instead aim for a monthly goal…let’s say to drop 8 pounds per month. That doesn’t seem so bad. You can even break your goal down further…to drop 2 pounds per week.

Now write down the action steps you need to take weekly to make that happen. Before you know, in 6 months time, you will have met your goal! BOOM!

Don’t allow another year to pass you by. Not this time! Make your plan now so great things will happen in 2015!

Angry at God

November 23, 2014

Angry at God by Rochelle Griffin You are looking at a post I put on Facebook this am. I’m a believer in being transparent. You won’t find me pretending to be perfect. Instead you’ll find me being entirely human, including the ugly faults that I possess. And lately I’ve been flat out angry at God.  The past few weeks I’ve felt incredibly cheated, as though God answered a prayer and then said “My bad,” taking the answer away. You see, we live rural. Well when you homeschool your only child and live rural, there is a degree of mommy guilt that […]

What’s Your Passion?

November 3, 2014

What’s Your Passion? by Rochelle Griffin How does a well-established nurse with over 20 years experience make a decision to leave her career and take a flying leap into something that not only becomes her passion but also unleashes freedom in ways she never imagined? More importantly, WHY would she even do so? Mid-life crisis? Temporary insanity? Perhaps a little of both? Well, this is exactly what I did but before I get into the how and why, I must first give you a bit of background. I often hear how people have dreamed about becoming nurses since they were […]

Meal Planning Made Easy by Rochelle Griffin Meal planning. Do you do it?

20 Easy Ways to Reduce Stress

October 24, 2014

20 Easy Ways to Reduce Stress by Rochelle Griffin We live in a crazy, fast-paced world. Often this leads to the inevitability of stress…whether in the form of our food choices or the emotional pressures that we feel. Either way, this stress will cause pre-mature aging and eventual physical symptoms if we don’t do something about it. For this reason, I’m a huge advocate in taking time to relax and let the stress wash away. Whenever I mention that you need to reduce stress regularly, I’m often then asked HOW to accomplish it when, again, we live crazy busy lives. […]

The Hostess with the Mostest: Parasites Party

October 17, 2014

The Hostess with the Mostest: Parasites Party by Rochelle Griffin Many unsuspecting people are constantly in party-mode, playing host to a variety of GI pathogens including parasites…also known as bugs, microscopic organisms, or worms. Reality is that about half of the people dealing with parasites don’t even have GI symptoms so they don’t know to do anything about it. The biggest question that I receive most often from my private clients is “WHY did I get this?” Here’s my simplest explanation: Stress of any kind in our body, whether from our dietary foods, emotional stress, pain, or hidden stressors, signals […]
