Happy Tuesday! So often we forget that life is 50/50: half positive and half negative. The good, the bad, and the ugly make up our life. The refreshing idea that I want to offer is that although you don’t choose what happens to you, you DO choose how you react to it! That is a powerful mind shift. It puts the ownership onto you. No more excuses, no more hiding or dodging how you show up to manage the circumstances of life.


One step at a time, you are empowered to choose the direction when faced with a situation. Have you ever thought about it this way? Have you given yourself permission to be more positive when faced with something? Have you thought about how to handle life differently in order to get different results? One of my favorite quotes is from Albert Einstein, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” My sweet husband reminds me of this from time to time when I fall into the trap of choosing different reactions to life’s curveballs.


This week, as we get closer to Thanksgiving and the tidal wave of the holiday season and all its overwhelm, step back and notice how you react to circumstances and get curious about how you could reframe and adjust your choice of reaction. I promise you that once you notice these habits, you’ll be interested in looking at ways to make changes in your choices one step at a time! Give it a try!


I’m working with so many clients who are making this habit change and they are seeing lasting results that decrease their stress and lead to impressive healthy lifestyle changes. I’d love to work with you one on one to guide you, too! Let’s get started sooner than later!

Happy Tuesday and Happy November! Now is the time to take a serious look at your health and ask yourself two key questions: Where am I right now with my health? Where do I want to be? In coaching, we look at the present and the future without looking back too much. What’s done is done, so take the lessons and move forward!

How do your clothes fit? Do you like what you see in the mirror? Do you want to shed some weight? I can’t say it enough that NOW is the time to make some small changes that will lead to weight loss. Why wait until AFTER the holidays? Why wait until you have nothing left to wear that feels good on your body? Why wait until you hide behind everyone in pictures again this year?

JUST. GET. STARTED. How do you get started? That’s a common question that I get from my clients all of the time. I tell them that one step at a time is how it happens. I will say that you MUST be kind to yourself on this journey. Talk to yourself the way you talk to people who you love. It starts there. When you work on the inside first, the outside results then happen.

So, as you think about making some changes soon, do one thing that is new to you. You could cut your portions in half, you could not eat after dinner, you could save your dessert for one time a week (i.e. Sweet Saturday, as we used to call it in my house), you could be mindful of how much sugar and salt you actually eat, or you could drink more water. These are simple ideas to get you started. Honestly, there is no magic pill or quick fix that has lasting results. There are as many ways to eat as there are different people. You have to put in the time and effort to find what works for your body.

I challenge you this week to make this November the time to take action. Start small so that you can change habits that will change your weight and your health. Not ready to try this on your own? Reach out to me to find out how I can help you! Put yourself first!

Happy Wednesday! When you pay attention to how your body works and how your brain thinks, it’s a recipe for success with weight loss and a healthy lifestyle! This year, I decided to do something that I have done before: Have a sugar free Halloween! WHAT??? This sounds crazy, hard, and just plain impossible, doesn’t it? Not necessarily! If you do the work to train your brain to think about why you don’t need to fuel your body with sugar and how good you feel when you don’t, the magic of healthy eating takes over and becomes automatic. It’s a decision that is entirely up to you!

Research shows that sugar consumption harms you in so many ways and it is everywhere. Sometimes it’s obvious (i.e. candy), and sometimes it is hidden (i.e. pasta sauce). You have to be aware of how it shows up in foods. 

Did you know that sugar has been compared to heroin in terms of its addictive nature? Did you know that eliminating sugar from your diet has been compared to withdrawal from drugs? Did you know that sugar adversely affects your skin, brain, insulin levels, your heart, and many more parts of your body? That is pretty shocking but so true! Have you ever thought about how much sugar you consume? It would be worth the time to evaluate your relationship with sugar right away!

So, how can you have a sugar free Halloween like I am this year? Here are a few simple ideas:

  • Decide to skip the sugary Halloween treats this year and swap them for a healthier option like nuts or some fruit.
  • Keep the sweets out of your reach and out of your house. You can’t eat what isn’t there!
  • Hold on to fond memories of past Halloweens and remind yourself that you’ve probably had enough candy in your lifetime and it’s okay to pass on it this year.
  • Remind yourself that healthy fuel for your body leads to a healthier and happier YOU!

My challenge to you is to look sugar in the face and make the first decision to push it aside. It’s empowering and courageous as you treat your body to more love and attention than sugary treats! Give it a try!

Not ready to try this on your own? Reach out to me to find out how I can help you! This is a very common issue that many of my clients work on and are quite successful with! It’s your turn! Happy Sugar Free Halloween! (If I can do this, anyone can!)

Happy Tuesday! It’s everywhere! I’m talking about Halloween candy; one of my biggest triggers all year long! Can you relate? Halloween is my favorite holiday because I think it’s fun, silly, and it reminds me of cozy fall memories. Growing up, of course, the sight of so much candy at once was exciting. Although I don’t remember ever eating all of the candy I collected while trick or treating, I do remember eating a lot of it…until a handful of years ago when I started to ask myself WHY! It’s not like I couldn’t eat candy at any time of year, so why was I overindulging every October? ALL. MONTH. LONG.

Once I thought about how it had become an automatic habit, I started to flip my thinking, and I came up with 3 ways to tame my inner Halloween candy demons:

  1. Plan your treats: Decide ahead of time what you are going to eat for a sweet treat and when. For example, we used to have “Sweet Saturday” in our house. On that day of the week, one sweet treat was planned and enjoyed without guilt or shame. When it was gone, it was gone. It truly became a treat and not a daily event. That made it more special and more intentional. It also made the other 6 days of the week without treats very doable. Perhaps it was the anticipation that was actually more delicious! Another example is sitting in front of the trick or treat bowl as you wait to pass out candy and selecting a few treats for yourself and enjoying that amount only. Again, when it’s gone, it’s gone.
  2. Celebrate Halloween on Halloween (October 31st). PERIOD. To me, this means enjoying a sweet treat or two on October 31st and that is it. This strategy takes some getting used to since we are bombarded with candy months before Halloween and temptations are all around us. It also requires you to remind yourself that Halloween is one day, not the whole month of October.
  3. Swap your sweets: It takes practice to find a healthier version of your favorite Twizzlers, but it can be done. In fact, you can reason with yourself that in your lifetime, you have eaten plenty of Twizzlers and it’s okay if this year you decide to bake some peeled apples with cinnamon to feel satisfied and to enjoy the flavor of a very delicious fruit. Another swap idea is to reduce the amount of candy that you eat. For example, you can choose a fun size candy bar instead of the full sized version. Eat it slowly and be mindful of the flavor to fully enjoy it. Portion swaps like this DO add up to noticeable weight loss as the habit becomes more automatic.

So, try to do one thing differently this year to push your weight loss goals further a little faster by trying one of these 3 strategies. Keep an open mind and take the first important step to a small change that can improve your health and help you shed some extra pounds. Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Happy Tuesday! If you’ve read my blog over the last few weeks, you are probably curious about how to lose weight during the holidays, even though this may have felt impossible to even imagine in the past! This week focuses on taking action to get the results you want. So, now that you’ve decided to put your health first so that you can feel and look better, where do you start? That is always a common question that my clients have! The good news is that every person has a different set of strategies that works best for her. You just have to find the ones that fit your needs, your preferences, and your level of commitment. Here are a few ideas to help you get started:

  • What is your timeframe for losing weight?
  • How much weight do you want to lose?
  • Moderation vs Elimination: Which strategy works best for you?
  • Clear the Clutter: Get rid of temptations that might derail you (i.e. a monster size bag of Halloween candy)
  • Elimination reframe: because it serves my body vs punishment/deprivation
  • Reprograming diet culture messages (i.e. quick weight loss)
  • Remembering that there are 4 days of holidays not 3 months

Next is the big jump: start right away! No need for a “last supper”, just start! Set yourself up for success by getting the right foods in your house and removing temptations. It is all about how you treat yourself and how you think about getting healthy, so keep that in mind! Every BODY is unique, so let’s find what works for you!

Best of luck taking some action this week! If this is too overwhelming and you’d like to work with me one on one, I have a few spots left for this fall! Contact me at glepage7@me.com to learn more! Next week, we’ll talk about results!

Happy Tuesday! Ready for some shocking news????? The typical holidays beginning in the fall are only 4 days for most people: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. Yes, not everyone celebrates these 4 holidays, but in the USA, most people do. You can substitute your holidays for any of the ones I mentioned to make it more meaningful for you. The point is that between October and January 1st, there are usually only 4 twenty-four hour blocks of time that include holidays. So, what’s my point? 


The biggest thing to realize is that we tell our brains to go all out for the months of October, November, and December just because it’s the “holidays”. Pause and let that set in! 91 days of celebration which we’ve convinced ourselves should include lots of unhealthy eating just because we’re in the “holiday spirit”! WOW! Most of us get caught up in this mindset so easily. But why?


Why do we let anything yummy and sweet be eaten in excess for 3 months? Why do we get caught up in the “holiday season” this way? Good question! It’s a habit! I invite you to think about it differently this year and to take control of how you want to think about the holidays in a way that will support your weight loss. That’s right…weight loss during the holidays!


Recap last week’s blog:  STEP #1: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE HOLIDAYS? I challenged you to get curious about WHY you associate weight loss and the holidays in the way that you do and to write down all of your reasons and look at each one. How does this make you feel? What does weight loss during the holidays bring up for you?



Today, think about if you’d like to feel healthier during the holidays this year and are you ready to try something new? This means stepping outside of your comfort zone to get results. This might very well be the first time you’ve thought to try this, especially at this time of year. WHY NOT? I believe that you are worth it!


You have 2 choices: keep doing what you are doing and stay stuck with more weight on your body than it needs OR move forward with me to figure out how to get the weight loss that you want. I always say that nothing tastes as good as healthy feels! I live by that myself! I can help you learn how to shift your thinking so you can do the work to get there…during the holidays.


If you are ready to enjoy the holidays with your health as more of a focus, you’ve come to the right place and the time to start is NOW! I can help you ditch the belief that overindulging is something that you deserve. I can help you to reframe old habits of making dozens of cookies and eating more than you should to properly fuel your body. And most importantly, I can help you figure out why you self sabotage at this time of year. I listen to you, I offer strategies, and I guide you through the journey. Ready to join me?


Reach out to me so that we can start doing the work and you can get big results! My clients get it done and so can you! I think that you are worth it…don’t you?

Happy Tuesday! Tomorrow is the first day of Fall…officially! The Fall season to me feels so cozy, so comforting, and so welcomed to move into a new time of year. The colors and smells bring me back to happy childhood fall days with apples, pumpkins, and beautiful leaves! What does Fall mean to you? What are your thoughts about this season? What does it taste like to you?


That being said, like it or not, it also means that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are right around the corner. If you are considering losing weight BEFORE the holidays, you may be feeling a bit of panic about all of the extra sweets and treats that are coming your way. Do you feel like you will give in to all of the temptations or will you overindulge? Is that your pattern? Do you usually start losing weight only to quit when you give in to holiday food? How do YOU feel about this? Or are you panicked and fearful that you are setting yourself up for failure…again this year? Or are you excited and joyful because you know how to lose weight, even at the holidays? Are you hopeful that this time will be different?


STEP #1: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE HOLIDAYS? Write down your thoughts about this so that you can see what you are choosing to think. This will lead you to really face your thinking head on. Remember, YOU decide how you think. YOU decide what that means to you. YOU are in control! Did you ever realize that? There’s your power; you get to decide your thoughts. YOU write your own story. 


Next, get curious about WHY you associate weight loss and the holidays in the way that you do. Write down all of your reasons and look at each one. How does this make you feel? What does weight loss during the holidays bring up for you? Face your feelings and clear the brain clutter to make space for the next step. Eliminate the reasons that you know are not going to serve you if you want to shed weight in the next month or months ahead. This will give you clarity of your chosen pathway forward. The best part is that YOU have the power to decide for yourself.


So, spend this next week on step #1 so that next week we can talk about the next step: FACE YOUR FEELINGS→ Do you want to feel them or eat them? What is the cost of doing either? That’s going to make a big difference! I can’t wait to walk you through that next step next Tuesday!


In the meantime, please reach out to me if you are interested in working together one on one BEFORE holiday stress and temptations come your way. You’ll be amazed how this is actually the BEST time of year to make healthy weight changes! TRUST ME! That’s how I have learned to be my own holiday weight loss boss! Think it over! I’m ready to get started with you!

Happy Tuesday! Today’s message is simple: Be kind…to yourself! I also say this as a gentle reminder to myself! As I tell my clients, I don’t ask you to try anything that I haven’t already tried myself! You see, I am always a work in progress, constantly trying to learn how to take better care of myself. That way, I can better understand what my clients need, too.

Here are some suggestions to do when you catch yourself being unkind to yourself:

  • Talk to yourself the way you would talk to a friend!
  • Talk to yourself the way you would want someone to talk to you!
  • Praise yourself for small victories the way you would for someone else!
  • Gently encourage yourself when you are in doubt of your abilities!
  • Give yourself the room to be human and to make mistakes! Expect them!
  • Nudge yourself along with words of encouragement when the hill seems too steep to climb!
  • REST! Your mind and body need recharging on a regular basis! Listen to the cues to pause!
  • Be your own best cheerleader! Don’t wait for others to cheer you on first!

Just imagine how much calmer you’d feel each day if you were kinder to yourself! Give it a try this week!
