#96 Winter Blues and Chia Seeds
Carrying on from last week's blog on seasonal affective disorder.
You have the information now you have to act on it!
Did I want to walk this morning? Hell no!
Was staying in bed a nicer option? _ yep!
Did I go anyway? -yep!
It's all about weighing up short term pleasure against long term gain.
- You can start right away.
- You can be exercising instead of thinking about exercising.
- You can become a ninja at winter exercise and eating well.
- You can have me supporting you throughout the entire process.
- You will have direction, support, accountability and a process to walk you through the hardest part of getting going.
- If you are already making some good choices but need a little nudge with your food or exercise. I am here to help.
- Getting motivated now is the difference between emerging in springtime lean and healthy or totally blah!
- Your winter mindset is everything

This tiny gluten-free whole food is loaded with fibre and omega 3's and has massive nutrient benefits for few calories.
28g = 137 calories but you can only absorb 101!
28g gives you a whopping 11g of fibre.
This is soluble fibre, so chia seeds can absorb 10-12 times their weight in water.
You will know this if you have ever soaked them to make a chia pudding or added them to your overnight oats.
11g of every 12g of carbs they contain is soluble fibre.
You cannot absorb these carbs and don't need to count them.
Soluble fibre is fantastic for gut health.
28g also gives you 4g protein, 18% of your daily calcium requirement, 30% magnesium, 27% phosphorus and a healthy dose of zinc, niacin, potassium, thiamine and B12.
They are also high in omega 3's.
The lowdown is that this superfood is great for protection from heart disease and some cancers due to its anti-inflammatory properties and great for bone health too!
You can eat them raw or soaked.
They are a great addition to rice, quinoa, veggies, breakfast, and smoothies

Here's what my clients are saying:
' I am 52 years old and since I turned 40 I have found it hard to lose weight and keep it off!
I have completed the 12-week Weight Loss Mindset and Motivation course and have nearly completed the Part II Weight Loss Change and Transformation course and have found them both truly mind changing.
The courses have changed the way I think about food and exercise and helped me understand how different food affects my body in different ways particularly as we women get older. The program is flexible and I can adapt it to suit my own lifestyle (I have multiple food intolerances/allergies and the course allows me to utilise the foods I am able to eat). It is definitely not a one size fits all.
One of the best things I’ve found with the Outlook for Life course is the awesome community spaces to share along the journey! The Facebook and Zoom calls are a great way to ask questions and share thoughts and progress with other women in the program. Ginny is a wealth of knowledge and always there to help us out! The course is all online which makes it super easy to come back to at any time.'
"Ginny, I have to say that I am amazed at how much I am enjoying this programme!! I cannot thank you enough for your motivation and honest sharing of your own journey - you've been where we've (I've) been and know all the ill-founded untrue logic & feelings I have. I never thought I could feel this positive about the choices I have around food and how easy it is to make choices of the most benefit to my body and mind! Love it!"
"Hi, Ginny! These zoom videos have been awesome to watch. I like how you are focusing on a few things at a time. Telling us to not focus on the scales, counting calories etc but on the wholesome food we are feeding ourselves and how we are feeling. I'm looking forward to learning more next week!"
Mindset and Motivation reopens 1st Week September.

Do not think that it is like any other online course that you may have done.
It is full of content and full of me helping you!
We have 3 sessions a week where you can ask me questions and be coached.
Do not be scared of the tech either-it is simple I have un tech-savvy clients in their 70's getting so much out of this program!
