Work Life Balance

This is one of the hardest things to do. I find myself working, working, working without a lot of time to play. I'm suffering the results of poor balance now as I battle a nasty cold. Sigh!

So how can you balance your new Best Body Lifestyle with Eating Clean, working, raising a family, and staying on top of a busy social schedule? Here are a couple of things to try:

1. Ask your friends and family for support. We're all human and we all need a helping hand here and there. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Tell your family and friends about your lifestyle change so they know how to support you.

2. Plan active social gatherings. It's lovely to meet good friends for dinner and a glass of wine, but it could lead to overindulging. Why not try asking your friends to meet you at the gym for a class or out for a walk or bike ride. You can exercise and socialize at the same time!

3. Always stay in the moment. Commit yourself fully to your workout times, but make sure you do the same for your partner, family and friends.

Most importantly, listen to your body. It will tell you what you need.

Hi Tosca,

Could you explain this a bit to me. The eat clean diet is explained to be both a lifestyle diet as well as a diet for weightloss.

I have your cockbooks and the recepies seem often to be pretty high in carbs even if they are good complex carbs, but in contrast the eat-clean meal plans presented in the magazine are often pretty low carb. Example, dinners are only protein and veggies such as seamed broccoli and chicken.

So what is the deal? Is the eat clean diet cockbooks not for wightloss? All the people who have lost lots of weight did they go on a low carb eat cliean diet??
