That’s right! You heard it correctly. I am becoming a health and wellness coach and I want to walk the walk!
I am talking a year long class with Joshua Rosenthal through his Institute of Integrative Nutrition and if all goes well at the end I should look and feel better and then be able to coach you to do the same through my new business Building Better Bodies Rocks, where I will help people one person at a time to build a better body today!
Joshua believes in the ripple approach which refers to the fact that health can be catching and as I help you you will in turn help to promote wellness in others.
I know this to be true in my own family as while I improve my own diet I hope to improve the diets of my five year old twin boys, Jarvie & Giles, which can have profound effects on their overall lives and the lives of not only their offspring but also others they connect with in a meaningful way. It is really exciting when you think about it that way.
One of the thoughts from my recent modules at the Institiute for Integrative Nutrition is that the more you involve children in the cooking of the family meals the more they will be engaged in eating it. I am going to begin to employ this idea as soon as we get home from vacation. I really want them to embrace this change.
Even if only the meals at home are ultra nutritious, I will make a profound impact on their overall food choices just by modeling healthy eating in the home.
I am pledging to work on my dieting and play with healthy eating for one year from August 20th, 2015 through August 20th, 2016. So let’s see what happens.
I will be keeping you apprised of all of my trials and tribulations throughout the year kind of like Kiersty Alley of Jenny Craig, Queen Latifah for Jenny Craig, Marie Osmond for NutriSystem and Jennifer Hudson for Weight Watchers, except I will be manifesting Mark Hyman’s detox diet!
Wish me luck! I’m going to need it!
