The real cause of your cravings

Just popping in with a little check-in.

 

How are you doing today? How did you sleep last night? Have you gotten in any workouts this week? Are you focusing on whole foods? And how is your mood?

 

I’m asking because all of that is RELATED.

 

When just one of those things is out of whack, it can throw everything else out of whack right along with it!

 

●     A bad night of sleep can throw your hunger hormones out of balance, making you feel hungry, even if you’ve eaten enough

●     A stressful day can leave you exhausted and craving comfort foods (and tempt you to skip your workout)

●     Lack of activity can drain your energy and also leave you tossing and turning

●     Eating too close to bedtime can make it hard to sleep

●     And on and on and on!

It's not hard to get stuck in a cravings loop

So if you’re having one of “those days” try taking a step back to look at the bigger picture – the real cause of your cravings - and then take ONE ACTION to help you feel better (and get back on track).



 


Some ideas: 

●     Go outside for a brisk walk and fresh air – or make time for a workout

●     Take 5-10 minutes to sit in a quiet space and do breathing exercises

●     Make sure your next meal is healthy & made of whole foods (including veggies!)

●     Double-check your water intake for the day

 

This can be like hitting the “reset” button on your day and will help you make better choices moving forward.

 

What’s ONE action you can count on to RESET your day? Keep this in your back pocket in case you need it! Drop me a line in a reply email or tag me on social media to let me know.

 

Having a “big picture” viewpoint can make all the difference in your fitness/wellness.

Not only will it help you construct your roadmap to success, but also add the accountability, support, motivation, and experience to help you feel great every step of the way.
