Need Newsletter Subjects

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I'm going to be getting my email newsletter going soon and am making a list of subjects that people want to read about so I'm going to my awesome Spark friends and Spark community for suggestions. List what sort of weight loss/health and wellness subjects or questions you would have so I can compile ideas for upcoming newsletters. Here are a few subjects I have so far:

Ways to start liking vegetables (I'm a sort of reformed veggie hater myself!)
5 small steps to start your weight loss journey (tips on how to get started without getting overwhelmed)
Ways to bust a plateau (I'm the queen of the monster plateau of 2 years that I FINALLY broke recently)
Healthy snack recipes (such as granola bars, etc. that you can make naturally at home)

What else can you all think of? DISCUSS! :)

    How to avoid the yo-yo cycle and how to get out of it once you have entered that cycle.

Snacking is my weakness,,,, so maybe plan on making healthy snacks

    - Setting attainable goals (both scale related and non-scale related)
- Rewarding yourself when you reach those goals (non-food)
- The importance of rest/recovery after workouts
- Having a food plan that doesn't set you up for failure (freezing/batch cooking, prepping snacks ahead of time, checking restaurant nutrition info online, etc.)

    Chris, I'd like to learn how to like exercise. Except for walking and ST, I really don't like exercise.

    What exercises you can do when you are short on time and supplies? I used to have tons of excuses, like "oh, 10 minutes isn't going to do anything for me" (But you can burn 80+ calories in 10 minutes if you work at it) or "I don't have any weights, so I can't strength train."

    Hmmmm....OK, I'm assuming this is for a client list, mostly folks new to it

- Balancing the Big 3; Nutrition, Cardio, & ST
- How to handle set-backs
- The importance of NSVs...what to look for when the scale doesn't move
