You workout in the morning and eat well all day. As a result you feel really accomplished and proud of yourself. Then when it’s time for dinner you decide to order pizza because you deserve it after being “good” all day.
Do you eat well for the most part but have a tendency to say ‘I deserve it” even when you know deep down that the food won’t help you reach your health, wellness and weight goals? Shortly after, you either regret your choice and beat yourself up for sabotaging your efforts, or you justify the reasons it was OK to have the food. Either way, you feel like you’re stuck in a pattern of not being able to keep your willpower up and it’s keeping you from reaching your goals but you’re not sure how to get out of it or why it keeps happening.
If you’re feeling frustrated and don’t know how to break free from the pattern, this workshop will provide:
- A better understanding of what’s keeping you stuck
- Strategies you can use to stop saying ‘I deserve it’, even when you don’t truly want the food you’re faced with
- Tools to put an end to the negative self-talk or justification of your choices that comes up afterwards
Cost: $95 for one workshop or $225 for a pack of 3
What You Can Expect From This Workshop:
Your thought patterns and emotions are powerful. They drive your actions and habits. During this workshop, we will dig deeper to understand what’s happening during your day, in X area of your life, to decrease the power cravings have on your actions and to help you find freedom and satisfaction around food.
The workshop is capped at 15 people so it will be a smaller group of like-minded individuals who are experiencing similar things. You will receive support from everyone in the room and the workshop is set up so each person will walk away with new insights or understanding about their current patterns.
If you’re not sure if this workshop is right for you, please contact Laura at [email protected] and she will answer any questions you may have.
More to Come:
This is the first in a 6-month series of workshops where you’ll explore your relationship with food and how it’s affected by different areas of your life. When we aren’t happy in our jobs, are intimidated by going to the gym, feel like we don’t have any cute outfit options in our closet or are overwhelmed by the thought of cooking, all of these can have an impact on our food choices.
You can attend one or all six workshops based on where you need added support. The other workshops in the series include:
- October 3rd: Bite into Freedom with guest speaker and Psychologist Dr. Paula Freedman. During this workshop we’ll explore the role food is playing in your life so you can better understand your cravings and patterns around food.
- November 1st: Break the Cycle of Burnout with guest speaker and Career Coach, Liz Traines. Are you feeling burnt out from your job? Do you use food to replenish yourself in the evening or as a way to gear up for the day? You may not realize it but the two could be related. Join Laura and Liz to gain strategies to end the burn out and figure out what you need to replenish in a way that won’t sabotage your healthy eating efforts.
- December 5th: Stay on track Through the Holidays with guest speaker and Personal Chef, Sarah Eden from Improve Through Food. If you typically throw your healthy eating habits out the window due to limited time and all of the social gatherings in December, this workshop is for you. Sarah will provide tips on how you can prepare meals with limited ingredients when time is tight. Laura will help you find the middle ground during this busy time of year so you don’t need to start over on January 1st.
- January 23rd: Bring Joy Back into Your Workouts and Healthy Eating with guest speaker Personal Trainer, Christine O’Hagan from Spindle Fitness. Do you find yourself resisting working out and eating healthier? Maybe you feel like you lack motivation and willpower, or find it overwhelming to just get started. During this workshop Laura and Christine will talk about how there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to exercise or eating. Instead, it’s about finding a tailored approach that will work best for you and your body without feeling deprived and is actually enjoyable.
- February Date TBD: This workshop will feature guest speaker and Personal Stylist, Alyssa Peterson from Cashmere and Wit. More details to come.
