How many times have you tried making a promise to yourself to change an old behavior in some way, and then didn’t follow through?  

From the bottom of your heart, you want to make a change. You are really tired of X and enough is enough. You make the decision to change X negative habit and start doing X instead.   

In our world it maybe about stopping overeating… or eating at night. You want it so bad but after a couple days it gets harder and harder… And then, you don’t follow thru.  

Are you aware that not doing what you say you want to do is generally due to what I call Self-Sabotage?  


In this episode I discuss 

The 5 Steps on How to Follow Through and Make You Stick with It

  • Understand that it’s normal to not follow through at first. It’s self-sabotage!
  • Accept and be Compassionate – to not fall in the downward spiral of shame and guilt
  • Understand the Intention behind what you’re trying to change that needs follow through. Is it from a place of lack or abundance?
  • Recognizing yourself when you actually do it – Do you positively reinforce yourself?
  • Prioritize Yourself. Make time for yourself in the spirit of change for your own self-improvement and development

Last episode, I answered Emma’s question, “I can’t figure out why I overeat and it’s so frustrating.” Most women have a good handle on food.

But, is the reason that we are thinking the real cause of our overeating? You are probably thinking, “If it’s not the real reason, then how do I figure out why I overeat?”

In this coaching episode, you will learn how to find the root cause of overeating. This is very important because only you can know what they truly are. In fact, the answer is easy and it’s inside of you. There are tools to help you find this answer…
