Going from Stuck to Inspired!

Why Weight Loss Bores Me!

I’m just going to put it out there, if I’m being completely transparent, I just am NOT a fan of measuring your goal or success by how much you weight. Nope, nada, no.

Why? Well, I’ve never seen numbers be all that accurate. Nor do I think weight should be the ultimate health marker. I weigh 155 pounds! Holy moly! That seems like a lot. In fact, according to the height to weight ratio, I would be borderline overweight. Seems inaccurate given I am 12 percent body fat, don’tcha think? My fiance actually is borderline obese given his weight to height ratio. His body fat percentage, most likely even lower than mine.

We all have our own vice, you know yours and I know mine! So, if it's in the house, it's gotta go!

How I Manifested the Life of my Dreams

As I sat in my big, comfy leather chair today, snuggled up by the fireplace and Christmas tree, waiting to meet with my clients online, I realized something, "I've manifested the life of my dreams!" Holy sh*t! Sorry but how else do you react when you realize something this groovy?

Why Your Digestion Sucks... 👎

So, what does stress do to your gut? Oh so many nasty little things. Let me explain the whole picture for you. 

When we are stressed, we release hormones. One of those hormones being cortisol. Now, cortisol is great when we have an open wound or illness that our body needs to defend against. However, when we are stressed out because we're working 80 hours a week, our marriage is on the rocks, or we can't disconnect from the outside world for fear of missing out... that's a whole other story.

Be Less Busy 🕐

I find it's easy to get lost in the "to-dos" and simply stay "busy" and then get stuck in the mentality of not having enough time. So, what if we instead, decided on what our priorities were and stay true to those things? What if we committed to putting our energy & TIME into those top priorities?

No Talkie before Coffee☕

We've all seen it and we are all probably guilty of it too...

GLORIFYING EXHAUSTION!

What am I talking about? Ya know, the mugs that say, "no talkie before coffee" or "mama needs her coffee" or "behind every successful person is a substantial amount of coffee" or "coffee = survival juice." You've seen them all, I'm sure.

In fact, you may even have a mug or decor in your kitchen with one of these sayings on it. (I'm not pointing any fingers because I have one too!)
