Meal Prepping!

Hi There!  Today We’re gonna talk about Meal Prepping:)

But first a quote!

 

“The first step towards becoming perfectly yourself is acknowledging your imperfections.” ~ Mathew Kelly

 

I love cooking and I’ve sent out several video blogs on some of my recipes I really enjoy, but when work gets really busy and I’m crunched for time or I just get burnt out from grocery shopping and cooking.  The last thing I wanna do is food prep!  I’m sure you can relate…

HOWEVER… having your meals planned out and ready to grab and go is CRITICAL when it comes to making changes with your body.  Making any serious shift or change with your body requires effort and time.  Click to Watch Full Video HERE.

Before I left for my 3 week trip to Brazil,  I knew my days would be super tight on time and I would have a ton of things (personal and business) to get done. Going back to the quote, you have to know yourself.  I know that when I get pressured for time, I tend to turn to food for comfort.  Being honest with myself and knowing myself, allowed me to have an open mind for hiring out help.

After extensive research and testing different meal delivery companies, I found a company that I absolutely love!   I love their foods and I know I can always count on them to deliver fresh portioned out meals so that I can have laser focus with my business without worrying about overeating, cooking or meal prepping.

 

 

I’m gonna get honest with you… For those of you who don’t really know me, I struggled with food addiction and 60lbs of excess weight for years.

Now I can sit here and lie to both you and myself that the main reason I chose to do a meal delivery system was because I wanted to save myself 7 hours per week (which is true too)…But the main reason I knew I had to do something was because of my relationship with food.

Another huge relief has been letting go of any toxic energy I’ve had with food.  The past 2 month I was having so much resistance around my meals and food prepping/grocery shopping.  It was toxic.  I was starting to really resent it.

 

 

You see..sometimes when we hire someone to help us reach our goals whether it being a food delivery company, or a fitness coach..it forces you to see what’s been holding you back.   We all have “blinder” or a blind side and we never really get to where we wanna be with our bodies because of all the distractions.

That’s why this decision was so important to me, and who I chose to hire was super important to me too.  I have a HUGE trust issue with restaurants and food companies considering my past.  I had to make sure the company I chose had to uphold the best quality food.  No diet foods…just real, whole.. good quality and good tasting foods!

If you’re like me and curious about creating your own experience with a meal delivery company, go online and google a few meal delivery systems in your area.  Look up the reviews and try them out for a week or a couple days.  Just remember, you don’t have to commit to anyone until you find one you really enjoy.  I’ve tried several in the area and to be honest with you.. I was really impressed with Fresh Meal Plan.

 

Take Action Now:

1. Now is your time! There will never be a better time to begin.

2. If you’ve failed at doing your own food prepping and aren’t making any progress, view your failures as lessons.  Get honest with yourself, pause & take time to identify what you’ve learned from your past experiences.

3. I really love Fresh Meal Plan, they’ve really worked out perfect for me and my lifestyle.  As I mentioned earlier, I did my researched and tried almost all of the meal delivery companies in the area and this one met my standards.  If you decide to hire out a meal delivery company like I have, I suggest you weigh out your option.  But if you choose to use Fresh Meal Plan, I would really appreciate it if you used my CODE TS750 or mention my name Tanya Silva so I get credit for it and you get 10% off your first month!!!

“How to” Make Healthy Cookies

Hey There!

I’ve been getting a TON of requests on my Cookie Video.. So I just thought I’d share it with everyone!  Who doesn’t love a good Cookie…RIGHT?

 

But first, Let’s start off with a quote!

 “You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily.  The secret of your success is found in the your daily routine.” ~John C. Maxwell

 

Ingredients matter because that’s how our bodies function and perform.  It determines if we are satisfied with our meals or if we crave more.  Therefore, today’s VLOG is about “how to” make a healthy, satisfying cookie:)  WATCH HERE!!!

 

Quotes~ MaxwellChange WARNING:  If you’re someone who can’t bake treats without overeating them (like myself)… don’t!  I stopped baking treats because I tend to overeat them.  I can’t make things in bulk.  I know some people can make a batch of cookies and just eat 1 per day.  I eat like 1 per hour!  HAHA  Yes! They’re that good!  And Super Fun to make with the kids!!!

 

Know your self and if you want a cookie, go out and buy one!  But make sure that sucker is worth it!  Or what you can do, Like I do, is just make a single serving:)

 

NOTE: Just because they’re “healthy” doesn’t mean you can disregard your portions!

 

It’s not just about WHAT you eat, It’s about “How” you eat.  Mindful Eating is super important when it comes to Stepping into Your BEST BODY.  I’ve written everything about healthy eating habits in my ebook —> The 7 Eating Habits to Total Body Transformation.” <—Click to view.

 

Hope you enjoy and let me know how your cookies turn out!  Did you make any tweaks with the ingredients? If so, what?  Can’t wait to hear from you!!!

Q & A: Why bother trying?

Hi!!!

“It was unlearning certain habits and thought patterns hard wired in my brain and walking through my pain, rather than avoiding, that ultimately put me on a joyful journey of self discovery.”- George Mumford

I’m sure you’ve caught yourself asking this question 1 or more times:

Why bother trying?

 

 

 

 

 

 

OR…

“I’m never gonna get “there,” so why bother trying?”

 

Last month I picked up a book called The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Pure Performance by George Mumford.  In his book her brings up this same question that even some of the best-of-the-best athletes ask themselves.

 

George answers this questions beautifully: “As many of you know, taking small steps, consistently, in the right direction will eventually yield big results.  You have to start taking baby steps, even though you know you’ll fall down.  If you don’t begin the process and you don’t fall down a lot, you’ll never walk.”

 

what's the point small steps

 

WOW!  so true!

 

Getting starting and breaking past that self-sabotaging thought is what will get you from where you are to where you want to be.  Sometimes its just a shift in perception and a good slap in the butt to get us going:)

 

 

 

TAKE ACTION NOW:

 

1. Start today and just focus on feeling good.  “How can I feel good today?”

2. Next time you catch yourself asking this question, check in with yourself and focus on what you can do.

3. I wanna hear from you!!!  If you’re having any “AH-Ha’s” I would love to hear them in the comment box below!  Was this blog helpful?  I would love to know how it was helpful?  I would love to hear about any mental shifts you might be having right now:)

 

P.S. Here’s the link to the book: The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Pure Performance by George Mumford
