Fine way to start a Christmas Greeting, huh?
I thought I'd ask the question everyone will want to ask you if you've trained them to expect a gift every year. I'm so anti-tradition and more about relationship building. Relationships make the world go round, not gifts. We are all gifts in and of ourselves. I shared three Health tips leading up to Christmas, I've included them in this post.
Please enjoy your families, try to have a nice long conversation with a niece or nephew, try to listen and be engaging. Give them the floor to speak their mind you'd be amazed at the outcome.
Pamper yourself, get rest, turn the TV off and read a book, snuggle for over an hour with your spouse. If you eat pasta, slurp on the same noodle with your honey, like the dogs did in.........what's the name of that movie? I hope you are laughing!
Make Christmas special for your little kids 12 and under. Teach them the real meaning of Christmas by age 5. Leave the note for Santa, even the cookies and milk ( I do raw cookies and almond milk ). But, I have always taught my children that God blesses us that we may be a blessing to others and that everything we have comes from Him. I don't believe in a years worth of unruly teenagers but on Christmas treat them like Saints. If you agree, holla'!
Stay tuned for my New Years Eve message of hope, faith, love, perseverance , courage, joy and health for the next 12 months.
In Gods best,
Chelly - I am nothing without the one who made me!
FINAL HEALTH TIP BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!
WE ARE NOT SPENDING WHAT WE DON'T HAVE OR NEED TO.
WE ARE NOT GIFTING TO MAKE OTHERS HAPPY.
WE ARE ENDING 2011 BEING TRUE TO OURSELVES AND TRANSPARENT IN 2012 TO OTHERS.
WE ARE SHEDDING THE WEIGHT, STEPPING OUT OF DENIAL INTO FORGIVENESS.
WE ARE TONING AND STRENGTHENING OUR CORE, THIGHS AND ARMS.
WE ARE SHEDDING THE VEIL AND LETTING OUR INNER LIGHT SHINE.
WE ARE REMOVING BAGGAGE THAT HOLDS US DOWN.
WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH POSITIVE ENERGY.
WE ARE CALLING COACH CHELLY FOR HELP IN THE MONTHS TO COME.
I HAD TO THROW THAT IN!!!
1. IF YOU'RE GOING TO PIG OUT DRINK TONS OF WATER BEFORE YOUR MEAL OR
2. DEVOUR A LARGE GREEN SALAD WITH A VEGETABLE RAINBOW FIRST OR
3. CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT OF PEACE, JOY AND LAUGHTER AND JUST EAT!
4. CALL ME WHEN IT'S OVER :)
**IF YOU NEED HELP DURING THE HOLIDAYS MAKE AND BRING YOUR OWN HEALTHY MEAL, YOUR WORTH IT**
GET YOUR EXERCISE ANYWAY YOU CAN:
THE HOLIDAYS DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE ABOUT THE FOOD. EAT BEFORE YOU GO AND BE THE RUNNER. YOU KNOW "PASS THE PEAS", "OH, I DROPPED MY FORK, CAN YOU GET ME ANOTHER", "REFILL THE GRAVY PLEASE", "PLEASE REHEAT THE YAMS", "WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF PUNCH".
VOLUNTEER TO BE THE MASTER OF CEREMONY:
GOOGLE FUN GAMES OR TOPICS TO BRING THE FAMILY CLOSER TOGETHER AND DISCUSS THEM OVER DINNER. TALK ABOUT SPECIFIC EVENTS FROM PAST FAMILY GATHERINGS AND SEE WHO HAS THE BEST MEMORY. PLAY FAMILY FEUD AND YOU BE STEVE HARVEY (HE IS THE KNEW HOST ON THE SHOW). MAKE UP SILLY QUESTIONS, MAKE COPIES AND HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS ANSWER THEM AND THEN HAVE THEM EXCHANGE PAPERS. AT DINNER COLLECT ALL PAPERS AND QUIZ THEM ON THE ANSWERS. YOU MAY EVEN HELP YOUR FAMILY TO EAT LESS.
EAT HEALTHY AND KEEP THE THANKSGIVING TIPS TO HELP WITH MEAL TIME THIS CHRISTMAS. I HOPE THESE SUGGESTIONS HELP. IF YOU CAN'T DEAL WITH THE PRESSURE, JUST REMEMBER YOU'VE ENJOYED THESE FOODS BEFORE AND THINK ABOUT HOW THEY TASTED AND ENJOY THAT MOMENT AND THEN CHOOSE LIFE AND HEALTH INSTEAD. THAT IS HOW I'VE MADE IT 8 YEARS!
TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW TO INCORPORATE THESE CHANGES INTO YOUR LIFESTYLE, SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION WITH ME. YOU MAY NOT REALIZE HOW YOU ARE GETTING IN YOUR OWN WAY.
