Quick reminders for the next two days….

cat

Well, Christmas is finally here! Here are a few helpful reminders before you stuff yourself full or regret not packing a travel snack….

1. Enjoy the holidays- I hope you’re with loved ones and surround yourself with positive people

2. It’s not about the food- Remember you’re not celebrating Christmas because of the food and gifts- so don’t obsess over them!

3. Eat a small snack before the holiday gathering- This will prevent overeating and that food-hangover

4. Drink water throughout the whole day- This will help with cravings & portion control

5. You do not need to try one of everything- the world is not ending, there will be food in front of your face again

6. You can say no- You do not have to say yes to everything

7. You can say yes- You can say yes to help, a new activity or anything that deep down you want to say yes to

8. Did you get a workout in before? No? Here- go to http://www.7min.com to get active for 7 minutes and pump up that heart rate!

9. If you’re driving, make sure to pack healthy snacks (i.e. nuts, fruit) and water to prevent fatigue and overeating when you arrive to the gathering.

10. Hey, how about have Fun?

Merry Christmas everyone!

Stepping on the Stage

Hello again everyone and thanks for following my blog!

I primarily want to use this blog to post articles related to health & wellness that I’m reading each day, however, i can’t help but notice a blog is a little hard to connect to people when there’s no personality behind the posts.

Well, I can assure you I have some personality! The thing is, I don’t want my LLC and this blog to be about me, but about YOU, but it is time I “Step on the Stage” and introduce myself and get my LLC out there! I have been dropping off flyers within a 50 mile radius of my house, posting online, currently editing a YouTube video, trying to make touch ups on my website and blog ( man, what a slow process I respect anyone that made their own website!), reading some books about starting up a business and blogging AND trying to network as much as possible. I think those are the right things?

My name is Chelsea and I am passionate about people and wellness…period. I enjoy people and from traveling and volunteering for many many days throughout my life, I have met enough people to flat out say- people.are.awesome. I do one-on-one wellness coaching, presentations and community challenges through my current job (which I love) and want to expand it through my own company, InPower Coaching LLC. It was officially an LLC just this past July and I am ready to get it started and become a familiar and credible resource for anyone interested in their well-being.

I am reaching out to get any and every piece of advice possible about starting a business and/or blog. Specifically, for the health & wellness field.

Feel free to contact me on here or by emailing coach@inpowercoaching.org

Thanks everyone and I’ll be following you soon 🙂
