Back to the Root 2-Week Jumpstart
Two weeks can change your life. Food is not the enemy. This time has helped me to push a reset button on my life-long trying of everything out there to lose weight or meet a medical requested goal. I must see me from the inside out. When the inside is healthy and operating well, I glow. And it's the glow that I want not a number on a scale. The jumpstart program taught me to visualize and then actualize healthy eating. Deitra cooked a meal with dessert during class time and she showed me it is doable after working a full day to put something on the table. I learned what I like about meat can be just as true about vegan foods. I learned how to cook, experiment with food and satisfy my cravings. Lastly, Deitra encourages me to applaud the successes and not beat myself up when I fail or miss the mark. This is a life journey. I see me in my future, and I look and feel marvelous.
I would recommend the coaching process because it provides accountability and support. Deitra gives doable solutions based on the individual's lifestyle and goals. This is not a one-size fits all coaching program. There is no meat-shaming. Deitra encourages you to see a better alternative and to just give it a try. Nothing is in stone. If you don't like something, try something else but don't ever feel you can't be vegan.
The daily emails and videos are encouraging and provide small homework challenges to build up the participant's knowledge. I can go through an email and look with a 15-minute break. I really enjoyed the links to quick exercise videos.
I have a change of mind set. I am the master of what I put in my mouth. Healthy eating deters DNA destiny.
You were able to set mini agendas as you went along through the various component of the call. Your use of agenda setting throughout the call was a best practice, and such a terrific strategy to use. It allowed you to keep the member focused, and to let her know where you were going throughout the call.
Your goal work, and health behavior change/smart goal planning was also terrific! A very specific, measurable physical activity plan was collaborated with the member, with teaching and motivation used to help the member gain insight into the developing the plan. Outstanding work on gaining her commitment, and not letting her off the hook because of the winter weather. You offered her some viable options to getting in some exercise in the winter, and in spite of her very busy schedule. She hung up the phone with a very clear plan in place and outlined action she was going to take. Nice work here, Deitra.
Thanks for all of your hard work with our members. I appreciate all you do for them to help them lead healthier lives.
