Everywhere everyone is offering holiday tips to stay out of trouble. Well, aren’t the holidays about getting into a bit of trouble? I hope so. I intend to enjoy my wine, Christmas stollen (my brother made it and I can’t resist)  and turkey dinner with gusto. The season of celebration brings that out in me.


We are dedicated to Eating Clean year-round and have more than earned this moment. Savour your special Christmas dinner. Indulge in a glass of champagne on New Year’s Eve. Have a square of dark chocolate from your stocking. No guilt. No worries. No anxiety. Right now, focus on radiating your love for your family and basking in the memories you’re creating together.


You will not backslide into bad habits after one holiday treat meal or a few gingerbread men (as long as they are gingerbread). With your ongoing commitment to fitness, you will certainly reach your goals – besides I’m going to be right there with you. You have the power to transform your lifestyle, your body, your outlook. You are in control. Love yourself and believe.


New Year’s is coming and, and trust me, I have plans for us. This is a great time of year to reflect and become excited about the possibilities 2015 represents.  For now, enjoy the happiest season of all, guilt-free, and full of love and gratitude for yourself and your journey. If you feel overwhelmed by the whirlwind of festivities and food happening around you in the coming weeks, pause, take a breath and keep your #EatCleanAttitude positive and productive with these notes-to-self.  Post them where you need to see them and help someone else find calm too.  Young people, particularly students are coming off of exams, all nighters and are exhausted. Love them up.  Love you up.
