Let’s Talk… Comparison

Full honesty… this past vacation I struggled big time with comparison. Seeing one of the top coaches, my mind automatically starting shifting to how I could change to be more like her. How would my life be different… If I were thinner? Prettier? Different? Taller? Blonder?
.
For me, it’s always been that desire to be someone else, to be better. I only say this because I know as women we all tend to do this. If I looked like her, had her life, did what she does, then things would be different.
.
But here’s the thing… the world only needs ONE Bonnie Engle and the only person I will only ever be is ME. And guess what?! I can still help a whole lot of ladies as me.
Comparison is the thief of joy. You are perfect just as you are and sometimes we ALL need that reminder.
.
Take a minute today to think about something you LOVE about you… I guarantee someone out there is wishing they were more like YOU.

Nighttime Snacking

Who struggles with Nighttime Snacking?!!! Here’s the deal…eating at night is NOT a bad thing, but it often can lead to OVEReating if not done right, or if done more out of habit than actual hunger.
 
I know for me this has ALWAYS been a struggle BUT along the way, I’ve developed some tricks that work best for me…
 
Here are some:
1. Drink lots of Water or Sip on Tea (Cinnamon is my fave!)
2. Factor a nighttime snack into your daily calories or portions! This way you won’t do any damage, by adding in a snack at night…you just gotta plan for it!
3. Change up your routine and keep busy. I like to get my workout in at night, and avoid boredom at all costs!
4. Load up on protein and fiber… it’s more filling and if you choose a caesin protein it will slowly digest at night and help with muscle recovery and repair! I love the Performance line recharge, but even plain Greek yogurt will do the trick!
 
What are some of your tricks to avoid the snack monster?!
