Personal Notes: Greetings.
In last month’s newsletter I spoke about strangers holding the
door for people – how that was a simple random act of kindles that
could make someone REALLY happen. The
very day last month’s newsletter was released I was walking into an
office building carrying two HUGE (and therefore heavy) bottles of
water. I was struggling to open the
door and balance my load. Someone from
within the building came to my rescue and opened the doors for me. How is THAT for setting intention?
can you do to set intention to change your life or someone else’s?

events such as parties, receptions and family gatherings (or the plethora of
summer events and picnics) can be a challenge to healthy eating. Because we have no control over what is
served, we often feel pressured to eat foods not recommended in a healthy
eating program. The following tips may
- At a buffet, look ahead in
line to see what healthy choices are available. Fill up on healthier choices, more
vegetable based selections.
- Bring a healthy dish to a
pot-luck dinner. That way, you
will have at least one acceptable item among the choices.
- At parties, focus on
activities other than eating. To
avoid temptation, sit away from the area where food is being served.
- Ask for help from family and
friends who know you are following a healthy eating plan. Ask them to include healthy choices on
- Have a few ready answers to
say no politely to unhealthy foods.
For example “Thank you, but I couldn’t eat another
bite; everything was delicious.’

counseling services I can help you create and maintain balance in your life by
using nutrition as a focus and a tool. To do this I look at your entire
lifestyle to achieve maximum health. This is accomplished through
education and private consultations where an individualized program is
developed for you. These consultations include evaluating your current
diet and overall lifestyle and then making easily implemented, gradual
changes. Additionally, you’ll receive outside information in the
