… and I had to tell you.
I am thankful for your interest and loyalty in following this blog. I am also grateful for the opportunity to help you gain control over your health, wellness, vitality, and longevity.
All this gratitude motivates me in so many ways.
I know some of you personally, but many of you I don’t. In this context, it really doesn’t matter.
Either way, I’m driven to want to help you.
I’m also thankful to have found success at maintaining a high-degree of health & vitality for myself. And grateful for the platform to share these healthy habits with each of you; despite the challenge of slower than expected growth, and exposure to a broader audience.
During this Thanksgiving holiday, take time to give thanks for the things in your life that are challenging you and making you better.
But also take time to relax & recharge. Unplug from your busy life. Take time for yourself, and spend time with family and friends.
Go for a nice long walk. Make time for a workout. And find something to be grateful for regardless of where you are in your journey.
And then enjoy the amazing food, family, and friends that accompany this special holiday.
There are so many great things about a Thanksgiving Day dinner. But for some, feelings of guilt about eating too much ruins the fun.
Don’t let this happen.
Alleviate your stress by managing your portions and enjoying yourself. Besides, eating a little more than usual on one day isn’t going to completely derail your plans. If you try to be more mindful, you’ll have more control and make better eating choices.
Need help feeling or expressing more gratitude. My friend Mark Henson coined the term GREATitude. As he puts it, it’s like gratitude times ten. Here’s an example of his GREATitude Kickstarter.
Look at the benefits of Thanksgiving dinner.

It’s always wise to practice good plate management and portion control. So instead of just loading up mindlessly, plan your plate strategy by using the following ratio of clean macronutrients.
If you’re compelled to indulge in something lower on the “clean eating” scale, go for it and enjoy it. Just have a little, and savor the moment instead of devouring it and going back for more.
And remember, slow down and allow your brain to catch up with your stomach. You’ll feel much better with this approach. I can vouch for it, but sometimes need to be reminded of this after going too far myself. It just so happens that my wife is an incredible cook.
And finally, as we wind down the year…
You’re probably starting to think about what you want to accomplish in 2018. If it has anything to do with getting in shape and losing weight, I’d suggest getting on the waiting list for 1 of the 4 group coaching programs I’m conducting in 2018.
I’ve designed this new “pilot” program to help you lose weight and get in shape in a proven and sustainable way. It’s based on small lifestyle changes that produce better health & vitality by focusing on healthy habits that get results.
This program will change your life!
I am looking for serious people who will commit to losing weight and getting into the best shape of their life.
And most of all… Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for sharing your time with me. I hope you found value.
Now it’s time for YOU to take action…
