I get asked a lot, “What is the ONE thing I should be doing for my health?” I usually hesitate, really wanting to give them that one most cherished nugget….and then respond….(watch the video).
Our society has made health such a complicated thing. We’ve taken the last 8 weeks and de-mystified health and mentored you into a system that provides you the opportunity to become your very own best health care provider.

The FULL version of the Whitney's Kitchen NOSH SYSTEM is here! It's your bridge between knowing what to do.....and doing it!
When you click into your NOSH SYSTEM this week you will see the "Full Monty." This is what we've been slowly building up to! Remember our first week shopping list of just lemons and water? This menu and shopping list is full....but not overwhelming....and very wallet friendly. Choose a shopping day....download the list and buy the ingredients - your first step towards having food prepared for the whole week! Happy Mise' en place!
Congratulations! Everything is ready for you to cook all of the recipes in your NOSH SYSTEM. When it's time for a meal, simply compile the ingredients you've already prepped and serve as directed. It's SO simple!
To be successful and stay on track you need to identify your motivation, goals, and support team. Take a few minutes and fill out the worksheet provided. “No matter how badly you want to change, you can’t succeed without a strategy. The will to change is not nearly as important as the will to prepare to change.”
All journeys of great significance begin with a firm understanding of where you are. Grab a scale, tape measure, and your most recent lab values. Record your personal data on the forms provided. Save this information where you will be able to access it frequently. We will refer back to this form to celebrate your progress often.
Completing the health assessment will give you the baseline you will need to measure your progress as we continue through the course.
Join our private facebook page. Introduce yourself and tell us what you're expecting from our 8 weeks together.
"Well begun is half done." - Aristotle (and Mary Poppins). A successful morning always begins with preparations made the night before. Our first homework assignment is to carefully follow the three steps we've outlined each evening before bed so you'll be halfway to morning routine success before your alarm even sounds!
It's going to be a great day! The plan is set - simply walk in it. In time, this morning routine will become a favored ritual. It builds the framework you need to take great care of yourself. If you don't care for yourself...you won't be able to care well for the others in your realm of influence.
"Truth Therapy" is the clinical name for our Daily Declaration. Becoming a pro at listening to yourself talk takes practice. Most of us have habitually ignored our own self-talk, much like white noise from a fan (or tuning out your 3-year-old's steady stream of questions). This week we'll begin to tune in more, learn to monitor our thoughts and, consequentially, our actions by speaking truth.
If you didn't do this last week: Log into the online community. Introduce yourself and tell us what you hope to get out of our 8 weeks together.
This week's assignment: Tell us your progress on your evening and morning routines. How's it going?

Continue implementing your evening and morning routines. Each consecutive day you add to this new routine will bring you closer to this new behavior becoming a treasured part of your life.

I have each of these books in my own extensive library. Filling your mind with fodder that supports the lifestyle you've chosen is essential to continued success. If you're on a limited budget, consider checking them out from the library. Many libraries even have audio versions of these books (my favorite). I LOVE using my drive time to "read." It's another great strategy to be purposeful with otherwise useless time of your day.
