Mindful Eating – Peaceful Eating

Time is short this week so I’m going to briefly talk about a favorite free e-newsletter.  Annette Colby, PhD, RD, author of the Eating Peacefully newsletter, holds degrees in nutrition and exercise physiology and certifications in a variety of other specialties including reikki and energy healing.  I’ve enjoyed the newsletter for a number of years – it has always been full of inspiring quotes and wise words about eating, healthy weight and taking care of yourself. 

Here’s a sample quote from a recent newsletter on the meaning of failure. 

“I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career.  I have lost almost 300 games.  On 26 occasions, I was entrusted to take the game winning shot and missed.  I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”   ~ Michael Jordan

If you haven’t guessed, this subject was addressed because failure is something that weight strugglers really struggle with.  When viewed the wrong way, failure creates fear, and stops us from trying to achieve our dreams.  If viewed as a learning experience, it can help us find the path to success.

Or read this piece on emotional eating that we asked Annette if we could feature on Green Mountain at Fox Run's website.  Annette shares some wonderful insight for someone who struggles with emotional eating.

‘Til next week…………
