The Whole You
Is September the New January?
by Wendy Humphris, ROHP
What feelings come up when you think of summer ending and autumn creeping in? Is it one of refreshment and excitement for the new season to begin? Or perhaps you're disappointed for the summer fun in the sun to come to an end? Which side of the road are you on? When I think about it for myself, I seem to be in the middle of the road, leaning towards loving September and the season of Fall.
If summer's half as busy for you as it is for most, the impending fall season may feel like an incredibly necessary wind-down time. As the weather begins to cool down and we gear up for a change, it's the perfect time to reevaluate your goals that may have slacked off after New Years, and use this time as a second resolution season.
What in your life needs a fresh start? Think about 1 or 2 things that would improve your life for the better, that you've been meaning to get around to doing. Does this mean going to bed earlier on a regular basis? Making sure you eat fruits and veggies daily? Choose just a few things so you can stick with it!
What goals are you striving to achieve that need a tweaking? Anything you've been working on that's taking longer than
expected? That could mean you just need to slightly tweak your plan to make it more actionable, less daunting and more easily accessible. What could that be?
What projects around the house didn't get checked off during Spring Cleaning? Is the closet still overflowing and the basement a mess? What project can you tackle that you've been putting off?
Aside from the beautiful colours, delicious seasonal foods and crisp air that autumn brings, it brings a new chance for achieving your goals by the end of the year as well. Don't feel guilty if your new year resolutions fell to the side -- pick them back up and reach your goals.
What about your health? What resolutions did you make in January that you've let slide away? Did you have plans to lose 30 lbs by now? Did you have plans to walk everyday? Did you have plans to meal prep weekly? What happened to all those desires?
As we head into the fall season this is your chance to revisit those lost plans.
Starting September 23, 2019, we're going into our RAPID RESCUE ~ Metabolic Stabilizing Solution.
This is a 6 week, clean eating, weight loss, metabolism boosting system. Our most recent Tuesday Talk with Wendy FB Live post talks more about the program and how it works. See post here.
So, what will it be for you?
I will be revisiting my own eating patterns and definitely ramping up my exercise routine. This is the first year (in the past 25 years) that I don't have children going to school, and no lunches to make. YAH. So I will have to really make sure I put myself into a routine, because, like it or not, getting the kids going, making lunches etc etc was a great excuse to be on schedule and in routine.
If you'd like to set up a free chat around getting yourself back into alignment with the Rapid Rescue program, set up an appointment that works best for you through my scheduler HERE.
