There are so many lessons in each day, in big events & stressful situations if we can see them.
This week we lost my grandma & celebrated my dads day (his death anniversary) & as I sit here this AM riding my bike I’m reflecting….
Death can breathe life if we let it.
It can remind us that once we’re gone so are our dreams, aspirations, goals & things we want to do. It can remind us to not wait & to do the things we want to do NOW.
It can inspire us not take life for granted.
It can inspire us to seize opportunities & take chances.
It can inspire us to keep peace & have a joyful heart & to let go of things that disturb those things.
It can remind us to take advantage of the family & friends that we have.
It can remind us to live each day to its fullest b/c those that have passed on have no more days to live.
It can revive our zest for life & what’s ahead of us.
It can revive our faith & give us new perspectives.
There are always negative ways to look at situations & life events but I choose to try to find the good in all things.
Keeping a negative mindset keeps a negative heart.
So I’ll be shakin’ things up a bit over here if you want to join me?!!
I want to…
Learn how to eat
Wear a bikini
But I don’t want to:
Pay for anything
Drink that shake
Join your group
Read the nutrition plan
Girl, get real with yourself.
If you don’t change the way you think, nothing will change.
In fact, it may get worse. Vulnerability and investment in yourself is the only way to succeed.
When’s the last time you finished anything that was free and you were alone? Likely, never. Drop the excuses and change your life. Let’s goooooo!
If you’re interested in my help holler!
I talk with people all the time about weight loss & the truth is there’s no Magic Pill for weight loss! Its about what & how much you put in your mouth, are the workouts you’re doing enough & are you burning enough calories thru the day!!!
There are lots of workouts out there but if they don’t increase your calorie burn while you are doing them then you probably won’t see much weight loss….especially if your pretty sedentary the rest of the day.
Also…You must burn more calories than you eat.
No there’s no magic pill but sometimes just small tweaks can cause big results!
Holler if you need help!
You can hop in my Healthy Holidays group where I’ll be sharing EVERYTHING about how I stay fit, what I eat & other lil secrets to help YOU get to looking & feeling like you want!
This is a DONT MISS group!
I thought a blog post on motivation would be fitting for a Monday b/c it’s the most dreaded day of the week.
I believe when we lack motivation it’s b/c we lack our WHY. We haven’t really solidified our reason(s) why we want to do or achieve something in fitness, health, business or life. (Of course motivation can also be lacking if we’re not doing a job we love or a workout that’s fun BUT those are things that can always be changed!)
Example: you want to lose weight. Well most people aren’t driven enough to do that just for themselves so doing it for someONE else usually brings that motivation in that they need. So for me I’m highly motivated to be fit & healthy to be here & present for my children. My children = my WHY.
My children are actually my why for everything – health, business & life.
Everything I do is for them as like most moms. We can use that unconditional love as motivation.
If you don’t have kids maybe you have fur babies or other people that depend on you – use that as your motivation.
Motivation has to come from within b/c of that love burning deep inside you. Nobody can give you motivation. This is why if you’re to achieve anything you must determine your why then really develop it. It will be your driving force on the days you don’t want to workout, eat healthy, work on your business, work on your personal development…..
So figure out what your driving force is then put it around you – you can even write it on sticky notes so you see it often – & this will push you each & every day !!
There are a lot of times we have to be real with ourselves about our health, our weight, our lifestyle.
There are a lot of times we have to take a good hard look at our nutrition & fitness to see where the problems are.
But after we’ve done that over & over we have to take a deeper look as to what’s going on.
Especially after we have stayed focused & consistent on our food & workouts.
Over the last year I’ve gained 10lbs but haven’t changed my fitness or my nutrition. So this gain is really out of nowhere.
The only change has been that I had a hysterectomy plus complications & my body endured a lot & I just turned 40.
So I did a saliva test to truly check all of my hormones (y’all there are way more hormones than just our female hormones).
Found out I’m low in most…..
So I’m working to bring those all back into balance. Slowly I’m adding in the hormones & tomorrow I’ll start the 28 Day Cleanse that detoxes the body of heavy metals, viruses & bacteria & balances hormones.
It’s not too much different than how I eat now but there are food combinations that pack a big punch & everything is raw.
If you’re struggling with weight & have tried everything under the sun with little to no effect you may want to join me on this 28 day journey
I’ll start tomorrow so there’s still time to get ready!
It’s going to be tough BUT I know it will be worth it!
Reduction of swelling & bloating
Reduction of brain fog
Reduction of inflammation
Holler if you want these things & I’ll add you to our group!
If it’s not for you that’s ok!
Only a few will do what it takes to get control of their health, weight & life!
The Little Green Drink:
each morning after my workout I take in 16 oz of juiced celery juice. It aids in digestion, detoxing & overall health
