Reach Your Health Goals in 2017!

I don't talk about weight very often, because I know that people have issues surrounding weight and body image. I know because I am one of those people. 

My wife and I have been on the journey of adoption for over a year and it's been a very stressful year! Between the home study and trying to be "matched" with a child, I ate a lot of my feelings. I don't drink alcohol but I do eat sugar. And 2016 I ate a lot of it! On January 1st, like many people I made a resolution and commitment to me; to become a healthier version of myself. 

I enrolled in a certification program to become a Health & Wellness Coach. I've been learning and applying what I've learned to my own life. And at almost the 3 month mark, I am so proud to say that I lost 16 pounds and reached my GOAL WEIGHT! 

I would love to help you to create habit change in your life and become a healthier version of yourself. Email me (Gretchen@BeeYogaFusion.com) and let's talk about how we can get started together. We can meet in person at the yoga studio or over the phone/Facetime. Sessions are 30 minutes, affordable and easy to fit into your life.   

I'd love to help you reach your goal to lose weight, get more exercise or be happier! You deserve this.

Easy to-Go Breakfast

We are in the process of adopting an older child from foster care in the neighboring state of VA. We drive 2 hours each way to see our newest son on a weekly basis, sometimes twice a week. 

Since January we have been making the very hard choice of choosing healthy food to-go rather than drive-thru convenience. It's so easy to run through a McDonald's and grab a coffee and egg sandwich. But I pay for it later with added weight on the scale and a roller coaster of emotions as my body tries to regulate the convenience food. 

Resisting the temptation to over indulge is hard. But prepping the meals doesn't take that much time as I focus on food that is super easy to put together and throw in a cooler for the car. I know our waistlines and attitudes will be better for it.

Here is my easy to-go breakfast that I put in a tupperware and eat in the car. All ingredients are organic. And I prep the berries after I purchase them by cleaning and cutting them and letting them live in a mason jar in our fridge so that they are always easy to grab when the desire for a sweet treat hits me. 
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese (substitute plain greek yogurt if you don't like cottage cheese)
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries & blueberries
  • 2 Tbs strawberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup walnuts  
  • shaved organic coconut flakes.
