Truthbomb Tuesday – You Are More In Control Than You Think

If you show up consistently, you might enjoy feeling good a bit more consistently.

You are more in control of it than you think 😉

Thursday Thoughts – Health Issues Don’t Discriminate

Did you know that health issues don’t discriminate?

Like most other girls in the 30-40 year old range, I too thought Dylan was dreamy! I’m sad Luke lost his life at age 52…

But I see a lot of people commenting on his age and how he’s ‘too young’ to have died from a stroke/complications from a stroke, and while I understand the sentiment, again, health issues DO NOT discriminate.

They affect young and old, black and white, gay and straight, all religions, all political backgrounds, from all parts of the world, all professions, all income brackets… so on and so forth.

Health issues simply don’t discriminate.

And sometimes there is truly no rhyme or reason as to why we suffer health issues.

I know people who don’t really move their bodies, don’t really eat anything of nutritious value, fill their bodies with substances and alcohol, and yet have the paperwork to prove they are “healthy” across the board.

Similarly, I know people who do the majority of things right, and still can’t get into a health groove.

But all this is just one of many reasons why I work out. Why I try to make the majority of the food I eat nourishing and nutritious. Why I get acupuncture to help me heal and deal with stress. Why I drink water like tomorrow it could be outlawed.

Why I do EVERYTHING I do, and WHY I invite others to JOIN ME in making small changes that could make a BIG difference in their life.

It doesn’t mean we won’t face health issues, unfortunately. I mean, if only there was a guarantee, I’m pretty sure that’d propel a LOT of people into action, am I right?!

But there is something to be said for taking PROACTIVE measures. There is something to be said for LOVING yourself enough to want better for yourself. To care enough NOW.

How many of us would get our asses in gear NOW if we had a crystal ball that would predict health issues in our FUTURE?

In a perfect world, doing the majority of things right would set you up for a long life with no health issues or complications. But the world isn’t perfect and neither are we.

But every bit helps, so let us not strive for PERFECTION but rather, strive to empower ourselves to be BETTER than we were yesterday; to shine BRIGHTER than we ever have.

And if you need help and support in doing that? I got you. Truly, we are all in this together 💕

 

Sunday Well Spent – Food Prep

It doesn’t matter if it’s a “holiday weekend” – we still have to setup for success, because we still have to fuel ourselves and make good choices.

My nutrition is ESPECIALLY important during this time as I grow this little baby – he or she needs nutrients and nourishment too!

I also made banana bread, and washed and cut strawberries and pineapple – yummy stuff thats ready to grab!

So take a little time today (or tomorrow!), and set yourself up for successful choices.

Because… shhh, come closer… you ARE worth good choices, and you ARE NOT too busy to take time for yourself 💕

 

Sunday Well Spent – Food Prep

Food prep used to totally overwhelm me until I figured out it didn’t have to be the whole kit-n-caboodle… it does NOT have to be ALL your meals for EVERY day of the week, but rather, a few key components to help you have nutritious, nourishing foods ready to go.

And these key components are different for everyone! Today, I don’t have time to bake, but I’m gonna get my eggs boiled, my fruits and veggies washed and cut, and my quinoa salad ready to go!

It’s worth carving out a little time for your health and wellness 💕

 

Mindset Monday – Your Biggest Obstacle

• MINDSET MONDAY •

Look, I’m living freakin’ proof that your mindset is not only your BIGGEST obstacle, but it’s also the most POWERFUL puzzle piece.

I used to focus on negatives, zero in on imperfections, give way too much weight to flaws, treat everyone like my personal therapist, and just straight up did not believe in myself. So everything was mediocre.

Because I mean, of course – you CAN’T and you WON’T be able to SHINE until you get your mind right. There is no way around it; your mindset and your belief in yourself are the powerful one-two punch you NEED to be unstoppable.

So, clear the mental chatter and just believe in your abilities, right here, right now. YES, YOU CAN DO JUST THAT. It’s hard, yes (and worth it!), but impossible? NOPE.

Need help? We’re better together, dont’cha know? 😉

Worth It Wednesday – 24 Hours

What if I told you we all get the same 24 hours in a day?

Because we do. We disperse them differently, but we all get the same.

So instead of saying you don’t have TIME, be honest and admit it’s not a priority, because if it was, you’d make it work with the time you have.

I don’t love being up at 3:45am to workout, and I need sleep like anyone else… but that’s why I get to bed at a decent hour.

I like binging shows on Netflix as much as anyone else, but watching TV til midnight does nothing for my health.

I am worthy. You are worthy.

Make it a priority.
