I’ve heard many people say to me, “oh I’m going to put on a few kilos this Christmas.” What!? If you go into it with that intention, that will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Your internal language creates your reality. What if you intended to stay the same, or even use the extra free time for some extra outdoor activities and got fitter over Christmas? Set your health intention for the holidays, catch yourself if you say any negative statements, and flip them around to a positive question. “How can I be even healthier & more active this Christmas than ever before?”
Get really clear on why you want to stay healthy and slim this Christmas, without a BIG why, the cake will come tempting. You need a really good reason to say “No!”. Ask yourself; why do I really want to be slim and healthy? Until you get an answer that no piece of cake could argue with. Maybe you want to live a long and healthy life so you can enjoy your grandchildren in years to come, maybe you don’t want to be forced into dramatic weight loss surgery – or hey, maybe because you want to look fantastic in that bikini – choose your reason and remember it next time the chips and dip come around.
Make a decision about what you are going to eat and drink before you walk into a Christmas party. If your Gran makes an amazing cake, and you love it, decide that you will have some of that, and then don’t eat other sweets or chips. Enjoy the food that you really want, without guilt, and don’t just eat everything because it’s there. You’re worth more than that! It’s your indecision that leads to overeating. Decide beforehand, and practice your response when someone offers you something. Repeat after me – “No thank you. It looks delicious, but I’m full.” Say it with clear voice and a friendly smile but don’t leave any room for arguments.
Use your ears to listen and connect with family and friends. Stay away from the snack and chips tables. Get yourself a drink, take a deep breath and go and talk to someone. If you’re a bit shy, remember that nobody wants to be alone at a party – your friendly approach might be a lifesaver to someone else! If you see someone alone, go up to them and introduce yourself. You could start off by asking my favourite party line – “So tell me, what are you passionate about?”
Remember your portion sizes, why you are staying healthy and keep your plate small. When you first get the thought, “I’m full”. Stop eating!
Wine spritzers are a great way to look festive without over-drinking. Limit your alcohol to 2 standard drinks. Make sure you drink lots of water before each drink and in between your next. If you think you’ll be tempted to drink too much, drive to the event, so there is no option to drink too much.
Instead of lying around bloated and overfull on Christmas afternoon, get some exercise in with your family and visiting relatives. Soccer, cricket, running around with toddlers are all fun family games that will help you to break a sweat and keep fit.
If you are struggling with your weight and body image, I’d love to invite you into my exclusive tribe of Goddesses so I can share my free video training on overcoming emotional eating and self-sabotage with you.
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
