Food For Thought

Join my free Holiday Habits Countdown event and keep some healthy eating habits this season!

The season of cheer, gifts and excess food (and drink) is upon us! For lots of people, the joy of the season is followed by distinct dismay as we notice the toll that all the cookies, eggnog, latkes, candy and adult beverages have taken upon our bodies. Whether you gain weight over the holidays may not be important to you, but nobody likes to backslide on healthy habits they've worked on throughout the year!


So this year, how about doing things differently?


Would you believe that you can enjoy the holiday season without totally abandoning your good eating habits? It's true! And I'm here to help.


I have created a free, 4-week event to help you stick to a few core eating habits—all without having to skip your favorite seasonal foods or miss out on the holiday fun. It's called the Holiday Habits Countdown, and sign-ups are in progress right now. And did I mention it's FREE ? And did I mention that there are PRIZES ?


Let me explain how it will happen...

  • Each full week in December will have an eating habit theme (balance, sweets, hydration and mindfulness).

  • To go along with the weekly theme there will be tips, ideas and a daily habit action "assignment" from me. Don't worry, these actions are designed to be quick and easy, just something to help keep your mind in the game.

  • You choose when to complete the daily habit action, and once you're done you'll leave a comment on the post for that day in the Eating Habits Lab Facebook group. (I'll make these accountability posts fun and easy, too!)

  • If you complete the actions and accountability posting in the group every day that week, you'll be entered into a random drawing for that week's prize. (The prizes are things that will help you with healthy eating—of course; think nice meal prep containers, a high-quality insulated water bottle, a bento-box style lunch box, cooking tools, etc).

  • A few extra surprises will find their way into the event, too—just because surprises are fun!


The Holiday Habits Countdown is designed to be fun, flexible, and festive!

Now, because it's the holidays and I know you are busy, I've designed this event to be extremely flexible. You choose how many weeks you want to participate, and which weeks you want to do. Maybe you'll choose based on your schedule, or maybe you'll decide based on the weekly themes. It's totally up to you.


The whole idea here is to have some festive fun while also giving a little bit of attention to our eating habits. That way, come January 1, we aren't faced with regret over letting everything slide for weeks. I don't know about you, but I'd much rather take some quick and easy daily action in December than deal with a bunch of self-recrimination come the new year.


Picture yourself on January 1.
Are you feeling pretty good about hanging on to some good habits, or are you facing a pile of self-recrimination over letting everything slide during December?

If this sounds like something you'd like to do, here's what to do now:

  1. Head over to the Eating Habits Lab Facebook group (link here) and answer the two membership questions to get in (if you're not already a member).

  2. Find the post about the Holiday Habits Countdown that's up top in the Featured section and click the link to get to the signup page.

  3. Sign up and you're done! It's really that easy—and it doesn't cost a penny! (And these days, who has extra $ ?).

  4. Be sure to sign up by Nov. 30th; sign ups close that evening. You better just jump on this now while you're thinking about it!


The Holiday Habits Countdown kicks off the evening of December 1st, and the event itself starts December 4th.


I can't wait to see you there!
