Five Part Series: Weight Loss Myths and Facts

I often have really interesting conversations with family, friends and people I meet  about the big picture strategies and the challenges around adopting the health and wellness lifestyle.  I have learned through these conversations that we all want good health, that is indeed obvious, however, we are confused as to what good health is (it really isn’t the absence of poor health,) what are the good health and wellness habits one needs to adopt and how does one adopt these habits and still enjoy life (I am not sure why these are mutually exclusive.)

Invariably though, the conversation will meander to weight loss strategies, so I have put together a 5 part series entitled “Myths and Facts about Weight Loss.”  Here are the 5 parts to the series:

  1. Meal Times
  2. Types of Food
  3. Carbohydrates
  4. Weight Loss Diets
  5. Habits and Belief Systems  

We will tackle one myth/fact a day for the next 22 days, in the meantime, feel free to share any myths or facts you would like addressed and I can add them to the series.

As well, I suggest you make sure to sign up for the RSS Feed by Feedburner found on the top right hand corner of this page so you don’t miss on any of this helpful information on weight loss.

And as always, I look forward to your feedback and words of wisdom.

How to Create Your Own Powerful List of Values Part III, a Fundamental of Leadership.

As an executive health and wellness coach whose methodology includes identifying and understanding one’s core values, strengths and purpose, I thought why not write about the subject of values. The idea of honoring and trusting one’s values and using them as a personal rudder, steering oneself in the right direction day in and day out is not a new fundamental of leadership; however, like any good fundamental, successful people go back to them during times of imbalance.  Many of the techniques and exercises below are as a result of my training with Adler Learning International.

Today is Part III the final of the 3 part series on How to Create Your Own Powerful List of Values that are meaningful to you, and only you.

Part III involves working with the values list you created in Part I and II.   Specifically, you will rank your values, identify which ones are currently being honored and implement specific actions to honor those core values you may have ignored.  Finally, you will have specific queries to use when its time to make those tough decisions going forward.  Continue reading
