From REBALANCE Client, Rachel H.: Adding Exercise

Since starting on Rebalance, I’ve had a back problem, so I have been dieting with a fairly sedentary lifestyle for these three weeks.  Not that I like being inactive as I miss my sports and being outside as well as the much better mood I am in with exercise, but I...

From REBALANCE Client, Rachel H.: Inspiration

Getting some inspiration right now from the Rebalance Before and After Gallery. My initial thoughts are that these women look fantastic, and of course, I want to look that good.  But these photos also make me think of motivations other than appearance.  Right now I am...

Rachel H.: Week Three of REBALANCE

Checking in once a week is really perfect for maintaining focus.  Saw Carli, got my V-12 shot, and took at look at the InBody Scan.  Despite a bad day during last week, I was down again, losing 4.2 pounds of fat (how does the scan break that out from my lean body...

From REBALANCE Client, Rachel H.

There’s always going to be easy diet days and difficult diet days, and yesterday was a difficult one.  I’ve been trying to heal from some injuries, but had a set-back.  I was feeling discouraged and the pain was getting to me.  My usual MO was to grab a huge roast...

Rachel H.: Day #10 of REBALANCE

When I’m by myself for meals, I tend to get lazy – raw veggies, leftovers, the same low-effort favourites over and over.  But twice this week, I’ve been with company and had some added variation and spice to the menu. I had drinks with girlfriends – relaxing on the...

Rachel H.: Week Two of REBALANCE

Had my first check in with Carli today.  Told her that all was good.  That I’d had about four days of adjustment during which I had some hunger and was bloated, but that I felt I adjusted quickly – the internal reaction, as well as the behavior adjustment. Some of the...

Rachel H.: Day #5 of REBALANCE

Love it when you find unexpected help in unexpected places!  When I met my boyfriend and his sons today at Chuck E Cheese, I was excepting a landmine of diet-breaking obstacles.  But their salad bar had plenty of really fresh and healthy veggies.  The strawberries...

Rachel H.: Day #4 of REBALANCE

Was a bit uncomfortable for the last few days as I adjusted to the change in food and calories. Glad I have made the commitment to get back to eating more veggies – I had certainly let that slide lately and I could tell through the last few days as my tummy grumbled....

Rachel H.: Day #2 of REBALANCE

Starting last night, I’ve been having a Cheeseburger Craving.  First waking thought this morning – cheeseburger.  I probably gained a few pounds in the night dreaming of cheeseburgers. Plan A, visualizing healthy, slender self, was not making the thoughts go away.  I...

Rachel H.: Day #1 of REBALANCE

My first day on Rebalance is winding down, and overall it went well.  I misjudged the calorie count a bit and did not eat enough at lunch and for my afternoon snack.  Was feeling hungry and a nauseous in the late afternoon.  And now it’s nearly nine, and I have 58...

From REBALANCE Client, Rachel H

Had my metabolic assessment appointment today with Carli. I really love the information in the InBody Scan printout. The good news is that the muscle and water percentages in me are good. And the bad news, well, I knew that already – body fat percentage is 36.6% which...

From REBALANCE Client, Rachel H

I’ve just completed the Rebalance “Health, Nutritional, and Lifestyle Assessment” form to take to my first appointment at SkinSpirit Palo Alto. I’m meeting with Carli for the metabolic assessment which is the first step to getting into this program and working towards...
