You've probably gotten started on tasks or missions that sounded good at first only to quickly run into the frustration that "No" it is indeed not the action or habit you can or want to stick to.
So you stop. And you may try something new, but for most people it ends here.
It may be a big, life-altering new action that you turned away from like those that, with continuation could lead to weight loss, a health turn-around, or a good social life boost or it might be little actions you thought would be healthy only to find that they now feel tedious.
One might say that you fell out of discipline. Or as a pattern, you aren't disciplined. But I would never say that because I know there's a lot working against a person in trying to make any self-motivated habit change.
In fact, most of us never consciously choose our next directions but rather we fall into new patterns based on what others are doing around us and the circumstances that befall us.
In the Habit Change LAB, we work through that internal resistance you feel so you get out of your own way and start making big strides in new habits in 90 days or less.
The thing is, you always keep your dreams and desires, they never really go away. You may stuff them down or make excuses of why you can't get them - like you're too young, too old, too far beyond it, too this, too that - but those are just that, excuses. Your dreams and desires are still your compasses. They still means something for you.
There's a beautiful balance that is involved when a person both A) Has a desire or the big picture in mind of what they want and B) Takes the little actions necessary to achieve that big picture.
The big picture works when paired with the little actions...
Not sounding very thrilling?
Lucky for you the answer is "No" to needing to work harder!
You just need to get on board with simple new habits you can implement.
Simple means simple. You don't start out in massive project mode when it comes to any new desired outcome. Where you start if you'd like things to be effective this time is in the area of small habit changes.

I've got a question for you...are you where you want to be in health? Ready for the pool and the get-together's?
I have to say, if food rules your world too often, it's frustrating! It's too bad that the habit of giving into junk-food binges can command such influence in our lives.
Cravings may pull on you, yet if you notice, they never help you...that is, except for the fleeting moments of happiness or instant satisfaction.
This may or may not be an ongoing habit. If it is, you may feel trapped or stuck in it and you may end up going moment-to-moment looking for your next bit of food (or other craving) happiness.
Junk food cravings don't help you in any way when it comes to health, your energy or losing weight.

Emotional eating or stress eating is when you consume food not out of hunger, but out of anxiety,
It's worse than you think. Not all the time and not as bad for some people than others, but junk food binges drive your moods and health down (into the gutter sometimes).
When do people suffer? Anytime, it's possible, but sugary junk food binges may be at the heart of your moodiness, depression, anxiety or overwhelm during the commonly occurring celebrations or holidays you entertain throughout the year - including your birthday.
It's not always you, sometimes it's your food.
When you're overworked, you can easily get burnt out, resentful and develop bitterness in your personality.
That's not pleasant for anybody! Especially you.
I've actually got a magical time period for setting and reaching goals.
It is not a year, not a week and not a day (in most cases, that is, if you are going for a total transformation). Rather, it is another chunk-period of time.
There's a reason why... check out my video below.
The words “weight-loss” and “snacks” often appear in the same sentence.
But that might also bring thoughts of "tasteless," "cardboard," and "completely unsatisfying."
Let me give you my best weight-loss friendly snacks that aren't just nutritious but also delicious!
What’s my criteria?
The criteria is that these snacks have to be nutrient-dense, whole foods where a little goes a long way; foods that contain protein and/or fiber.
These are so easy to keep on hand too. Here they go:
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
