Words of Support and Encouragement Week of January 11, 2010


lois_fruit_trayGood morning!  I hope this month has gotten off to a good start for you, and that you are feeling refreshed after the holidays.  Since the holiday season is often so busy, it is easy to fall a little off track with our eating habits and indulge a little more than we usually do!  It is always good to treat ourselves a bit, but we also have to keep the goal of being our best, and healthiest in mind.  Proper diet and nutrition while trying to conceive is just as important as any medication we can give you.  The idea is to create a warm, positive, and healthy environment in your body to welcome a child.  This month each center is having a nutrition or weight loss workshop to help you either get started or continue your healthy habits.  These are wonderful opportunities to receive a bit more support, and ask our practitioners any questions you may have.  The information is listed below:
