Monday Morning

Monday, August 16, 2021

Monday morning: Today’s the day. You are geared up mentally, the fridge is filled with healthy food and you are either ready to begin eating right or ready to regain control, and this time …forever. 

The morning starts out great!! Water 💦 workout 🏋️‍♀️ and still feeling positive✅ 👍🏻

Lunchtime comes and you prepare two meals,  one for you and one for your little guy.  Breakfast and lunch went perfect and you are still on track “YES! 🙌🏻” and then your little guy asks for an Oreo 😳

What is that magnetic force that seems to come over us? It’s like the voices in your head instantly begin to have a war overjustification and willpower. One little Oreo and it’s like everything you planned for just flew out the window 😅 

Often times your thoughts do a complete 180 and shift from positive-talk to justification and abandonment. 

Why do we do this? We know by now that this cycle repeated enough times can cause havoc on your health goals. 

You’ve been there before, how do you stop this stressful self-sabotaging cycle? 

Actually, there are several things that come to my mind, but how would you, thoughts? 



Dieting vs. Healthy Lifestyle Mentality

Let's Be Honest....

How many of you have lost the same 10, 20 or 30+ pounds over and over again? When this is repeated often, it can be super harmful to your body and can really play a mind game on your confidence and self esteem.

Diets Don't Work

If there is one message I would like to get across to you, it would be “Diets Don’t Work.” At least they don’t seem to last long-term. Do yourself a big favor and instead of trying the latest and greatest fad diets, pills, drops and potions, consider dropping the word “diet” from your vocabulary and replace it with “healthy lifestyle.”

Usually people start diets because they are looking for a jumpstart or to get to a goal weight real fast. Once they arrive (if they arrive) they usually stop and take a breather. The problem is they usually will gradually gain their weight back and sometimes a little more. Sound familiar?

Healthy Lifestyle is Smart & Long Lasting

Healthy lifestyle has a beginning but unlike dieting, there will be no end, there can’t be, not if you want to maintain the new “YOU” forever. It is through making good choices, eating healthy, moving your body and changing your behaviors that will keep you happy, healthy and leaner for the rest of your life. Think of lifestyle as a journey.

How To Get Started?

  1. Start by removing the word “diet” from your vocabulary.
  2. Replace the word “diet” with “healthy lifestyle”.
  3. Prepare yourself mentally to live healthy the rest of your life (notice I didn’t say perfect.)
  4. Begin. Take action.
  5. Improve a little every day
  6. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting and supportive like minded people (like me!)

When Should You Begin? 

How about right now (notice I didn’t say Monday.)The choice is yours. It’s easy to fall into the trap of someday; “Someday I’ll lose those extra pounds, but right now I have so many other things to take care of”. The truth is, you will always have things to take care of, people to see, and places to go.

You are Able, Capable & Deserving

Getting to that mindset may take a while, and the road traveled may be challenging, but in the end, reaching your healthy weight will be done right. It’s time to say “This one’s for ME!”

Meet Your Blogger 

Let's get to know one another, shall we?  I'll go first! 

  • I am happily married 
  • Love my crazy 8 (kids) and all of their little munchkins 
  • Consider myself a pretty cool gramma (slang for Grandma, Nana, Oma, GiGi.)
  • My kryptonite is Mexican food and anything chocolate with peanut butter
  • I just started piano lessons
  • My favorite healthy hot drink is Unimate, & my favorite healthy cold drink is Matcha

If you asked my friends and family they would say I am...

  • Blessed with the gift of gab
  • Adventurous (new places, food & things)  
  • Definitely a people person 
  • Unable to hold a tune, a beat or any type of rhythm
  • Full of embarrassing moments (eye roll)  

Love What You Do

"Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”   Well, I must LOVE what I do!!! Because it does NOT feel like work, I actually look forward to it every day, it is never boring and I have been doing it as long as I can remember (started back in 1987) and at times it feels effortless.  Hey, put your calculators away! It's rude to guess someone’s age. 

Over the years, I have helped countless people of all ages; shapes and sizes lose those undesirable pounds. It has been a joy educating, motivating and supporting each person through his or her transformation journey. The best reward is watching them arrive, hitting that measurable goal and then knowing they have the tools, strategy and confidence to keep it off for life.


Always Learn Something New

Not only have I just started piano lessons, I am creating a website and am now a blogger too!! All of which can be a little overwhelming. In fact, it has just about scared the socks off of me at times!

Because I had no idea how to start writing a blog, I did what every newbie blogger does; I went to Google search and educated myself.  Blogging Basics #101 encouraged me to find my niche and challenged me to write to you about my passion.

Take 3 With Me

So what will I blog about (drum roll please…)?  I will blog how to overcome your obstacles while trying to lose that stubborn weight! I am inspired daily as I asess my clients on their successes and obstacles from the previous week. I find it so rewarding to travel this journey with them as they strive to be a little better each day. So, that is my niche and that is how I plan to inspire you. 

So please accept my invitation to follow my blog. And then take just 3 minutes every now and again to view or read my post while you have your morning coffee or tea. In fact that sounds a little catchy, let’s name this blog "Take 3 With Me!" 

April Judd
