Whitney's Kitchen is all about creating sustainable and rewarding lifestyle change. The NOSH SYSTEM serves as your bridge between knowing what to do.....and doing it!
"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.

This week's assignment: Tell us your progress on your evening and morning routines. How's it going?
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.
