How to Find New Comfort Foods

food & nutrition Apr 22, 2023
How do we deal with comfort eating?
"I am stressed, I eat. I am stressed more, I eat more."
"I love sweets."
"When I eat, I can't stop."


Many of us are aware of the emotional eating struggle and the devastating health challenges it brings along with it. But we don't seem to be able to stop it. Why? 


Here's the problem, HABITS,  

Our urge to go to the refrigerator to find comfort foods that will make us feel better takes over. Why? Because that is what we have known for so long and is intimately familiar to our minds. It is habitual. You literally are addicted to this behavior loop. 

Then we end up paying the price for a brief moment of pleasure. Each of those moments accumulates into inevitable excess weight, inflammation, aches and pains, and disappointment in ourselves. 


Most of the time it isn't even about the food. It's about an emotion, a feeling we're trying to soothe WITH the food.

Emotional Eaters - Do This One Thing

food & nutrition Apr 15, 2023


In this message, I share with you how to connect with source of emotional eating by doing this one thing.


Many of our habitual patterns, including eating, come from our childhood. In this blog post I shared how the smell of fried cabbage and pancakes remind me of mom standing in the kitchen on Saturday night while i am watching Chip and Dale to the rescue. It simply reminds me of my mom's love. So it's natural to my body, when I am stressed, to want fried and sweet food. 


Can you think of childhood memories connected with food experiences and accompanying emotions?

  • Who was in the picture? It might be someone you care about, for example,  a family member. 
  •  What was the food? Can you think of that foods sensual qualities: texture, smell, taste, color, temperature.?
  • How old were you? It might be the 5 year old you or younger you.
  • What was the emotion and feeling associated with it? Think about love, safety, care.
  • How does it reflect...

Food, Family, and Fun!

food & nutrition Apr 11, 2023

There is a difference between QUALITY TIME and FOOD TIME with ourselves and loved ones.


We often collapse these two into one. Why is that? Why do we eat foods that we know are not healthy for us? Knowing that we still feel the impulse to do it. Then we feel guilty about it and a vicious cycle continues. It is so deeply ingrained in our psyche. It has become a tradition or memory that we feel emotionally connected to. 

What if it were true when we tap into the origin of 'comfort' foods, we could tap into how to change the patterns that don't serve us? What if this is the way out of old habits with unhealthy comfort foods and into a new and better definition of comfort, and food?


How did the whole thing with family traditions and food start? 

When was the first time you remember you felt connected with your family at the dinner table? 

A Vicious Cycle

I was 5. My mom was cooking cabbage.  I was watching Chip and Dale To The Rescue. Remember...

The Story of My Life

about nadya tatsch Apr 02, 2023

When was the last time you shared your story in order to inspire and touch someone's heart?  Maybe that isn’t easy because you are still going through it. And, you still choose to share it in hopes of inspiring and motivating others?


I am here to encourage you and say it's time to share your story. Its time to share it in a way you have not done before. And in this journey, the clarity of why we do what we do is born. Consider your life a perfectly written novel and to tell your story from that perspective.


Here is the formula for "The Story of My Life" Novel. 

I invite you to do your own.

Step 1. Take your age. 

Step 2. Divide it by 10. 

Step 3. Multiply by 2. 

As a result, you will have  5 chapters of your life, plus a what’s next chapter. 


Here is my formula:  I'm 44, so each of my chapters are 8.8 years. 

The 1st chapter of my life is through age 9, the next chapter to 18, then 18 to 27, 27 to 36,...

How to find purpose as an empty nester or in retirement

mindset & mindfulness Mar 19, 2023

How do I know my purpose? How do I know my true big Why? How do I know what's really true for me? How do I know if my gut is telling me the truth? 

And what if I know my why but how can I find the strength, confidence, and tenacity to keep going and not give up? How do I know I am strong enough?

When I sent you a survey last week asking what's important to you after 40, some of you mentioned finding purpose after becoming an empty nester and during retirement. 

Your answers inspired me to take a deeper look at my own life. And even though I am only 44, I am starting to ponder the same questions.


By the way, these and more topics we will be covering in the upcoming training "Healthy After 40" on March 24th, Friday 10:30am-12pm CST.

We will cover these five points:

  1. How to be consistent with healthy habits  
  2. Prevention of age-related degeneration
  3. How to find purpose as an empty nester or in retirement 
  4. Safe exercise for limited ...

How to Feel Energized and Motivated

Wouldn't It be nice to be energetic and positive most of the time? Wouldn't it be good to wake up in the morning feeling positive?

Instead, we hit the snooze button, maybe thinking about the daunting day ahead of us.

We do this day after day, week after week, month after month, and the years go by. We feel worthless and lacking. We blame ourselves and give up. 


Yet we do want a better, happier life and healthier stronger body.  


So here is our choice: we either keep hitting the snooze button and wishing the day away OR we get up and activate! It's simply our choice. 

So once again, I want to reflect on my personal experience.  When I wake up in the morning on  most days, don’t ask me questions,  don’t talk to me, don’t try to engage me in anything.  I don't wanna talk. I don't wanna smile, I think. I don't wanna be active.  I just want quiet. 


And yet you do know me as a bundle of energy,...

What's Important after 40?

mindset & mindfulness Mar 05, 2023

As I was prepping my breakfast (eggs, toast, swiss cheese with beetroot leaves), I contemplated what was important to me. I am, after all, past 40...actually 44. 


So let's talk about what's important for those of us who are over 40, 50, 60, and even wiser. 

I wonder if my thoughts resonate with yours. 

I would like to hear 5 major areas you can think of for a Healthy After 40 topic, which I will be teaching on March 24th, 10:30 AM CT. Click here to let me know.  


When we are over 40, what are our major priorities in life?

I feel at this stage we evaluate what works and what doesn't. We make certain changes to remove stress and unnecessary relationships. We often start new passion businesses or find other ways to take on new challenges or find other ways of adding income or meaning to our lives. We may start looking seriously at opportunities to grow wealth. 


I am sure HEALTH is at or near the top of the priorities list for 40+.

How to time manage in prioritizing self-care

mindset & mindfulness Feb 12, 2023


We are buuuusy. Life can become overwhelming. We might be taking care of elderly family members. We meet the needs of our spouses and families. We prioritize our jobs to build wealth and provide for ourselves and others. We do a loooot of things! It feels like juggling 10 balls in one hand. I hear you; I have often felt that too.


I think we all understand that we tend to take care of other people and outside responsibilities before we take care of ourselves. We know that often we simply don't prioritize self-care. We know we are not putting our oxygen masks on first. We know this isn't healthy for us. We feel like we should know and somehow do better!  We know what we SHOULD be doing, don't we? BUT we are just too busy and overwhelmed to make it happen


Do we often feel that if we start with our own self-care first, we are somehow failing others? The emotion comes from the pit of the stomach telling us we must take care of them first.  We blame...

Hero's Journey - Meet Susan

community & support Feb 05, 2023


"My mood and intention to make healthy choices have changed a great deal…

I choose happiness."


I want to share Susan’s story with you.


Before we met each other,

Susan was having trouble with a lot of pain. She had bad migraines. Susan says: They're pretty much daily and I was really feeling beaten down. I was very depressed and wasn't able to work much. I would eat anything quick and easy, mainly fast-food delivery.


In October 2022, Susan heard me speak at an online meeting. We met one-on-one to get to know each other. Susan was ready to change her health and her mindset. 

She joined the Transformation Club, subscription service for $35 a month, the most basic self-paced level. She needed something inexpensive to get started with. 


Here is how she utilized her Club subscription

First, Susan used the Club program to guide her to adopt healthier choices one step at a time. 

Second, she joined our monthly...

How do you know when you are ready?

mindset & mindfulness Jan 22, 2023

The holidays are behind us. I said it last week, but today it's really truly clear and unquestionable. We are definitely looking at what's ahead of us. We need to move forward. We need to get started on those New Year resolutions and goals. We just gotta go.


I am curious.. Where do you find yourself today? 


If you prefer listening, click here.


Are you still feeling like waking up from holidays and taking it slow and easy? Are you still in planning and strategizing mode? Btw, if so, we may still have another Vision Board workshop. Vote for your choice of day and time here.

Maybe you already talking about your goals but have not yet made that first action. Maybe you are talking about it with other people in order to find guidance, support,  or help. You may feel some anxiousness and uncertainty. 


Maybe you went on vacation and just relaxed and enjoyed yourself. :-)


Some of us are already in action! Is that you? You have done your...
