I am always about chasing goals and trying to stay on track to reaching my dreams. I also believe in always being a student and learning because when we take time to read a book, listen to a podcast, go to a class… we only become more knowledgable. Then if we implement what we learn, we can grow from it and push us closer to what we want. But, having a role model, following someone that has what we want to have can really help guide us to our success. Do you know you can learn tons of hidden secrets from your role model?? Who is My Role Model? No matter what our goal (lose weight, get out of debt, build a business), we probably follow people who share tips and advice on the subject we want to get better in. They often have what we dream of having (perfect body, eat healthy, successful business, rich and live a good … Continue reading →
I am now on day 13 of The Metabolism Plan. You can read more about it and why I started here. My scale continues to drop, except for reactive days or day’s my body is “off” for other reasons (stress, sleep, not enough water…). But, today I am down just shy of 7# and best part yet… my belly fat is shrinking. I am finally happy to see it not looking like a bloated balloon under my shirt! So if you are following my journey either through my blog or in my health/fitness accountability group – (The Kick Starters- Ready for Change) where I go into much more detail, you might be considering trying the Metabolism Plan, so I wanted to share a few tips to help get you started. Tips to Prepare for the Metabolism Plan. First you NEED a copy of the The Metabolism Plan book. This is one time I recommend the paperback version over the Kindle … Continue reading →
When it comes to my health, I will share publicly the positive side of things. When I workout, when I eat healthy I can talk all day about it… but I can’t be the only one who hides when we feel blah and down and things are not perfect. Today, I want to get a little vulnerable and share, because I do believe sharing is caring. I have been struggling with my well being. I knew it was my time to start dealing with depression I was starting to feel. My Story So you know earlier this year, I started going back to the gym. I was doing awesome, in everyday working out and starting to see results. I wrote about it in April that I was just fed up and ready to take action. But, what I didn’t write about was what was going on with me deep inside my mind. This might get a little personal, but sharing. … Continue reading →
Are you crazy busy like me? I run an at home business, I am focusing on my health & fitness, I am always creating art with the #ZenArtChallenge or my Bible Journaling now. I have a family. Our kids are getting married next week. Our first grand baby arrived a little over a month ago. The list can go on and on and on. And yet, I look at all the stuff I have to do. From simply doing laundry to and getting rid of stuff around the house to running my business. I continually am looking for how to get more done in less time and be super productive. My SECRET TO GETTING MORE DONE FASTER Here is a tip that I have found that has worked for me to be more organized on certain projects/tasks and I just want to pass it on. Create an HOUR OF POWER! Heck, it can be a 15 Minutes of Focus. … Continue reading →
The other day, I talked about getting so feed up with my health and my weight that I knew it was time to draw that line in the sand and just get started. That was also because in January I went through and reviewed my Level 10 Goals for what I wanted to achieve this year. And… one of them was to improve my health and to lose weight…. so I took action. Then there was the category for spiritual goals, and I had to question my own spiritual journey. That is when I discovered Bible Journaling. But, one of the categories on the Level 10 Goal Sheet is to review your spiritual goals. It’s funny, I have often completed the Level 10 goal sheet many times and simply left out that part of the goal setting categories. See if you know me, “religion” isn’t “my thing”. I never judge anyone for their journey. My husband is Jewish, so religion is part … Continue reading →
Hey! It’s been a bit since I last wrote, but life happens right. I do know that LIFE has gotten super crazy around here. Just in February alone a kid stole a car and crashed into both mine and my husband’s cars (his is totaled, mine was in the shop for a month). Talk about stress!!! I wanted to share something that has been on my mind lately. GOALS and commitment. On January 15 – I was tired! I was tired of not fitting in my jeans, not feeling well all the time, just tired of being out of shape and overweight. I was on the verge of having to buy larger jeans as mine were busting at the seems and overflowing at the top (yes, a dreaded muffin top). That day was the day I said enough is enough. I became so tired and feed up with were I was that I went into a local gym and signed up. … Continue reading →
I have been on a mission to lose a few pounds as my stepson’s wedding is quickly approaching and I know I want to look great in all the wedding photos. Therefore, I have started to workout and eat better, slowly making healthy changes. But, I wanted to share with you a secret I have and have to pass it forward. See, I found this AMAZING body lotion I put on after my shower (and at night if I don’t forget), and it helps tone and tighten loose skin plus it reduces the appearance of cellulite. Yeah, I was like totally skeptical! But… I started using it, and within a few days everyone at the gym was complimenting me on my arms. They could see the muscle definition more. I PROMISE you, in those few days, I was NOT doing tons of tricep work. All I did was use my Firming Body Contouring Cream. The compliments had me coming back to the … Continue reading →
Do you wake up on Monday feeling calm and ready to start your week? Or do you start the week off in total chaos? I get it! I use to be there, I wanted to wake up at the last possible moment to go to work. Thus, I rushed my morning routine to get ready (that included the take my dog out and rush him to do his thing too). But just think of how the rest of the day went when I started it like this. It tended to follow that chaotic-ness I started first thing in the morning. It’s time to start our week off for SUCCESS with FOCUS on what you want, not on chaos. Here are a 8 tips to help you stop living the song… “Just Another Manic Monday“ by the Bangles). First take time on Sunday to plan your week. Write out all your appointments, your to do list… and leave in enough time to get … Continue reading →
You ever want something and you work really hard on it, make progress and then one day stop doing what you need to do to be successful. Then, you seem to fall farther back then where you started? Now, you know where you “want to be” and you really do know how to get there, but that getting started can be really hard. It’s like holding you stuck for some reason. Yeah, I get that. I find I can be flying through and so focused on something and really seeing the momentum and the success. But then life can get in the way, or I need to shift focus and suddenly…. things really slow down or even stop. Gaining that momentum again for me is often a struggle. What I learned is to give myself permission to start slow. Even if I know where I am supposed to be and how to do things, if I am stuck and not … Continue reading →
December is a month where I really look back on the year and reflect. Then I create a huge bucket list or compare it to last years (sometimes things come off simply because they no longer inspire me.) Then I started creating some goals for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years and beyond. I basically then just narrowed that down to 3-4 goals I want to focus on right now. Here is the thing, I wrote my goals down, I thought about what I need to do to achieve it. Made another lists of things I need to do next year… BUT, the piece that was missing in all of this is jumping in and taking immediate action. I can keep planning and writing out my goals, that is awesome. It’s so important to write everything out and be specific. We can and still should do that. But, today, I want you to think about what you can do … Continue reading →
