Phew! This one I’ve got nailed!
I’ve worked 30 years at one company, currently in the IT Department. It is a job that I love!
But when I lost weight, I went back to school at night to become certified as a Holistic Health Coach. It is my goal to help other sugar addicts gain freedom from sugar and I wanted the knowledge and tools to help me — and others — be successful. (You can follow me on Twitter @simplysugarfree.)
At work I am also our Wellness Champion (a volunteer position). I give a number of workshops, or hire people to speak on topics that I’m not an expert in. I’m always telling my audiences: “You have a choice with each bite. To improve your health, or make it worse.”
And I have a number of sayings like that I use on myself (and sometimes my husband!) Another favorite one is “Pay the farmer. Or pay the pharmacist.” Because sometimes it seems like I might be spending more money on “healthy” food. But the cost of a cup of coffee and a donut really isn’t less than a hot bowl of oatmeal with some raisins and walnuts … at least in the long run. Because I have my health … which is priceless!
I have some other mantras that I use … usually when I walk each day. But they’re too private to reveal here 🙂
Suffice it to say: “If you don’t love yourself, who will?” And “If you don’t take of your body, where will you live?!”
