Episode 500 is in the books!! There’s a few different ways you can measure the number of shows done, via by hour or guest but today marks the end of week 100 since the show’s inception on February 2nd 2015. Here is a link to the inaugural show which featured Topher Morrison, Managing Director of Key Person of Influence and Speaker, alongside Ron Klein, our 2015 Lifetime Entrepreneur Award Winner and inventor of many products including the magnetic strip on the back of credit cards! Thank you to all our listeners and partners as well as the staff at iHeart Media Communications for supporting the show!
Our guest in this segment was Sarah Bingham. Sarah is a licensed nutrition consultant with a master’s degree and more than thirty-five years’ experience counseling and lecturing on all aspects of nutrition throughout the country. Sarah works as the Director of Nutritional Programs for Valle Counseling in Tampa, FL and is a certified GAPS (Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome) practitioner. Sarah is the founder of Fast Food Healing LLC, a personalized in-home nutrition counseling business and was on the phone with us today to talk about the 5 Steps to the Health You Want for the New Year!
The first was you must be forgiving of yourself. Move forward and do not look back on past challenges and failures as impediments to your future success. Remind yourself that we all have difficulties in life, some personal, others professional, and you cannot linger on the past. This advice is true across many aspects of our life too in addition to our topic today on getting healthy in 2017!
After you have forgiven yourself, make the decision on who you are going to be and how you are going to do it. Take small steps at first if you have time restraints or commitment issues and remember that small wins turn into big gains. Jamie elaborates on how his challenge to better health has to do with accepting small wins. He is “all or nothing” as he puts it and has a hard time just devoting a small amount of time or effort to the components of his life. Citing his return to USF in which he achieved a 4.0 GPA, his entry into Real Estate with no experience and becoming a Top 10 Coldwell Banker agent in multiple years as well as on the Wall Street Journal List, and his 3+ year career on the radio growing from once a week to a five day a week show, Jamie likes to go big or go home. Stating once he gets into the “zone” of fitness, he will give it everything he has too, but until then, the alternative is to do nothing at all.
The third step is to focus on the goal. Ironically enough we highlight #Focus each Friday on the program via #FocusFriday and how the ability to eliminate distractions will lead to those big wins. Put the blinders on and move forward with your return to wellness!
The fourth step is eliminate the processed foods. Of the five steps, this was the only one given that is specific to a diet or exercise plan that you can enact now. Sarah speaks to how sugar alone is 8X as addictive as cocaine and that along with artificial sweeteners and processed foods disrupt the body’s chemistry, making it difficult to achieve results even when consistent with the gym.
Lastly, Sarah reminds us to expect detours. No path to success or stability even is without detours. Be cognizant of these impediments and work with and then around them to achieve the desired goal to achieve your body’s optimum health in 2017!
