If you are like most of us you struggle to find the time in the day for healthy behaviors like, “do I work out or fix my meal?” Most of my Seattle weight loss hypnosis and Bainbridge Island weight loss hypnosis clients are working full time, have families, are involved in their community and struggle to find the time for healthy self care activities like meal prep and exercise. Slender For Life™ has a few gourmet cooks involved in the program but most don’t have the time or interest. And how do they find the time to go to the gym or go for a walk? This is one of the reasons that I have made available over 15,000 free recipes. Many of them are quick and easy. You can find ways to prepare healthy meals and be more active. Hypnosis for weight loss can help you.
Decisions, Decisions: Work Out
or Fix a Meal?
Study finds Americans sacrifice exercise time for food-prep time
HealthDay News, April 12, 2013: Preparing meals can mean less time for exercise, according to a new study.
Researchers analyzed U.S. Census data from more than 112,000 American adults and found that a 10-minute increase in meal preparation was associated with a lower likelihood of exercising for 10 more minutes.
The finding was true for men and women, single and married people, and those with and without children, according to the Ohio State University researchers.
They said their findings suggest that one healthy behavior can take time away from another healthy habit, and that public health recommendations need to take into account the time people have for beneficial lifestyle habits on a given day.
Overall, men and women spent an average of less than an hour on both meal preparation and exercise on the same day.
Read Decisions, Decisions: Work Out or Fix a Meal?
I get it. My day is very full. I get up at 4:30 and it’s usually 11:00 PM before I get to bed. I work out, I eat healthy, I work, I ride my bike, spend time with my family, talk with friends and I am involved in my community. And, my to do pile on my desk is deep. So finding ways of making it all work are important to me.
I share with all of my Seattle weight loss hypnosis and Bainbridge Island weight loss hypnosis clients that we prepare a very healthy meal in 45 – 60 minutes over the weekend. We often double or triple the recipe so that we can eat it 4 or 5 meals each week. Neither of us want to come home at night and spend much time on meal prep. When we get home for the day we can spend just a few minutes to fix our meal. Left overs are OK and often actually taste better over time as the flavors marinate.
I’m a gym person and I do love to ride my bike. I get up at 4:30 and I am out the door by 5:00 AM to go work out. I carve out time as I can on weekends to get in a bike ride. I schedule my day so that I can walk the mile each way from the ferry to my Seattle hypnosis office. My exercise schedule probably won’t work for you or perhaps even interest you. But, I do believe that you can find the time to fix a healthy meal and be more active. Maybe, exercise for you looks like taking the stairs at work rather than the elevator.
I have found with many Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss clients that when they learn self hypnosis they change their mindset and do find time to work out and fix a healthy meal.
