The new year is here and we feel sure that this time round we will stick to those resolutions to eat more healthfully, get regular exercise, sleep more and manage our stress better.  But how do we set ourselves up for success all year long?

Vivienne Aronowitz, seasoned dietitian and diabetes educator, will help you to identify goals and action plans that will lead to success and energize us to keep on track.

Setting up new year resolutions may seem easy but after that first flush how so you stay with the program and keep succeeding all year long?  One way is to ensure that your resolutions meet SMART criteria.  Are they Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time bound?  Come and learn how to choose the goals that will work for you to  lose that extra weight, get your blood sugars in control or be the best that you can be.  Learn how to evaluate what is working, what adjustments you might need to made to be successful, how to set up the right amount of stretch to keep yourself in engaged in the process. Who are your allies,  who are your saboteurs and how do you make them support your success.  Get ready to make 2014 the “jubilee year”!

Weekly meetings led by Vivienne to check in and set new goals; recipe ideas and food tastings.  Optional walk up Opelo Road before the meeting. 

For anyone committed to improving health including weight loss, blood pressure, lipid or diabetes control.  If you feel stuck in a rut, you will be inspired to move forward on your journey to health and vibrancy.

Comments from Participants at previous workshops and groups

“A Dynamo team to challenge you and support permanent healthy
lifestyle changes” Patti Cook, Waimea

"Vivienne and Michael have provided me with very good tools in which to begin a NEW eating lifestyle. I love the positive and joyous presentation of the information. The 100 calorie per food category has helped me tremendously in planning my meals. Planning my meals beforehand has kept me from straying off and eating stuff I don't want/need or is not good for me. Having the support groups each week is great incentive to keep it up and it feels great to be on track. I highly recommend this program for anyone wanting to lose weight and be "healthier for life."

"You saying this is a joyous journey has stuck with me. Michael telling us to see ourselves now as we want to be has also been helpful- it is too easy to despise my body."

"Great information and support."

"Wonderful and inspiring."
