The Seasonal Phenomenon that is ‘The Elastic Waistband’…
Less than two months – like seriously; this is not a joke. We’ve got under two months until Christmas. We all know what this means. Sure there’s the shopping, decorating and never ending, often annoying holiday music here; nope, it’s the beginning of the seasonal food fest. You know what I’m talking about here, it starts at around Halloween with all the candy, in November there’s Thanksgiving, and from then on it’s a food free-for-all until after the first of January when the “Oh crap, what have I done?” reality sets in and the repentance begins. The elastic on your sweats can officially strech no further and your jeans? Well, let’s just say those bad boys haven’t seen the light of day since mid-November. It’s definitely time to panic – just like you do EVERY YEAR!!!
Wait a second – BACK UP!! Guess what? It’s still early and NONE of this has happened yet! That means there’s still time to prevent becoming a slave to all things stretchy and baggy. This year, stop things before they start and keep jeans in your wardrobe through January. I know, it’s tough when you’re surrounded by cookies, candy, pie, stuffing, marshmallow topped yams, wine, egg nog… Stop drooling! I mean it. Wipe your chin and get your head back in the game. Let’s talk strategy here.
I know what you’re thinking. Every year you go into this holiday thing with the same plan – you vow to exercise religiously, avoid the buffet table and limit the ‘treats’ to major events only – but, it always ends the same. After turkey day it’s a smooth ride into a season filled with sweets and sweat pants. I’m telling you, it doesn’t have to be this way! Let Robb’s Angels – Amy (yeah, that’s me) and Steph help you stay on track through the holidays and kick start the new year too! How? Well, we’ve got this handy little program called “The Gatekeeper” (scroll down to see the details!) that sets you up for 3-months of success. You get your own personal coach, motivator and accountability officer. The coaching can be set up either with weekly phone conversations or email food logs and question answering sessions – it’s tailored to fit you and what works best with your busy life. It’s perfect for those that have a paleo plan in place and just need someone to ‘keep them honest’, troubleshoot, and/or dial-in their nutrition, exercise and lifestyle. If you’re new to paleo or are looking to tighten up your current plan combine the “Gatekeeper” coaching program with the “Road Map” meal plan ”(see details in program descriptions on Steph’s and my pages) and you’ll get a solid base plan and have support to get you started, tweak things as needed, and keep you on track. Now, through January 1, 2013; sign up for the 3-month “Gatekeeper” coaching program you can get the “Road Map” meal plan at a $100 discount when you combine the two.
So, what’s holding you back? Do you really want to revisit the same New Year’s resolution as last year? This year give yourself (or your sweat pant wearing friend/family member) a gift that will last a lifetime. Ring in 2013 looking good, feeling great, and equipped with the tools and skills to avoid the plague that is “The Seasonal Elastic Waistband”.
