Reasons to PANIC About Weight Loss…

Hi hi there you Delicious Being!

stress

Just a little bit of poking fun at our subconscious (God we just take this mind sabotage thing SO DARN SERIOUS sometimes ;)…

If you’ve been getting “in your own way” when it comes to losing weight, enjoy traversing through….

Reasons to Panic About Weight Loss!
(and what to feed your mind, instead):

1.    “OMG people will TALK about me!”

Yes… they will.  And to your face, they might say things like….  “WOW!  You look AMAZING!  What have you been doing?!”  (sounds awful ;)
…what they say about you BEHIND your back, is none of your business.  Gossip IS a form of flattery.

2.     “MEN (or women) will NOTICE me!”

You EARNED it, why not FLAUNT IT?!  I’m sorry, who DOESN’T like to feel desired, admired, and made feel attractive.
For those in a committed relationship, your new found confidence (and body) IS the ultimate aphrodisiac, no?  Go on… keep the lights on, I dare you ;)

3.    “But I’ll have to get new clothes…”

Hurraaah!  And you’ll actually LIKE looking in the fitting room mirrors!  …plus, you must admit, some of those clothes, those ratty sweatpants?  Do they make you feel like a MILLION BUCKS?  ….I didn’t think so.  

4.     “….but buying new clothes is gonna be expensive.”

Um… and just exactly how much money have you been spending on the BIGGER clothes & diet things?  Don’t kid yourself, you’ll still spend that money… the choice is your though… do you want to get smaller, cuter, funner clothes, or go buy more “size up’s”.  

5.     “I’ll become shunned by my friends and family for eating “diet” foods, and will lose my social life… “

Um… NO!  And definitely not I were to teach you the right foods for YOU.
I’m out with my friends and hunny all the time!  I eat amazing, and still stay shkinny.  Here’s a chance to not only change YOUR life for the better, but impact your friends & family!  Why NOT create a ripple effect, and be the leader???  Leadership and confidence is so darn sexy anyway ;)

6.    People at the gym will judge me, I’m way too out of shape to go” 

Reality check: no one there cares about YOU.  The people at the gym are there too busy caring about themselves, and most likely fretting about what YOU think about THEM.  

7.     “My weight loss will bring on attention… people will SEE me, and that’s scary!”

Yep, and when you triumph over fear, gain confidence, and feel EMPOWERED… what will you next to conquer next?
What dreams are covered under all those “layers”?  What are you WAITING for…  What do you WANT?
Ooooh revel in the juicy possibilities ;)

Enjoy the “mind-field”, Lovey… and if you’re ready to take a leap into the new frontier, you know just where to find me :)

Is “Positive Thinking” Just “Brain Candy” with no SUBSTANCE?

Hello there you glorious Nutrinista! How the heck are you?

Today… I’m gonna muse a bit about all this “positive thinking” stuff… You know, like in The Secret… and why it doesn’t reeeaaally work.

Like most of us “seekers” and believers, I’m sure you read the book (or at least heard about the concept)… Maybe you even played around with a couple of ideas and affirmations, but then returned to “planet earth”…  a little disappointed.  Me too ;)

Soooo if nothing’s really happening… why are these books and concepts so darn POPULAR?

To me… the allure of just “THINKING” your way to your desires, is like another crash DIET.  We really really want to believe it since it promises amazing, quick results, with minimal effort.  But just like any diet, the concept starts to lose it’s luster and appeal when the results are “minimal at best”.  Last time I checked, most of us are STILL not walking around looking like supermodels, with oodles of dough in the bank…  

big.brain_.alien_What gives???  Is the MAGIC of “positive thinking” just reserved for the “special few” that can somehow SUPERthink —->

Not quite…

What we forget, and what we sometimes miss… is that one crucial KEY that CAN in fact bring in what you’ve been dreaming off… it’s what I call:

“Inspired ACTION”

Here is the real deal, Love.  Thinking, wishing, praying… it’s essential, but it’s just PART of the equation.

In order to achieve what you desire, you have to back the thinking up with an ACTION.

And here’s where it starts getting interesting: the synergy of POSITIVE THOUGHT + INSPIRED ACTION create a supercharged force that bring you your results WAY faster!  (and without STRUGGLE)

So if there’s anything that YOU’VE been struggling with, something that you’ve been wishing for, or wishing would just go away (to no avail), you have to really ask:

“Have I been taking inspired action here?”

Be honest… and then ask: “Just how much longer DO I want to deal with this?”

GET CLEAR on what you WANT.  INVITE direction, and TAKE ACTION!  

Sign up for that gym, get help with your diet (ahem, I’m here ;), update your resume, or sign onto Match.com… Any step IS THE RIGHT STEP…  then watch as things start changing right before your eyes.

My life, my clients’ lives, my soulful business sisters… we’re asking, trusting, taking action, and watching in AMAZEMENT as things fall into place…  Incredible things are happening, so why not for you???

Oh… and just how DO you tell if it’s indeed an “inspired” action?  It scares you, your MIND tells you it’s wrong, or it’s not gonna work, or it’s a waste of time/money… But your heart – you FEEL a lightness and a joy…  so JUMP my friend!  And if you need a nudge, you know just where to find me ;) ….I’ll also bring the net.

Blaze dem trails My Dolls!  …and share YOU inspired actions, too :)  Together, let’s make some AMAZING things happen!

Cold Buster Juice

Even some of us super-healthed-up nutrinistas suffer a little immunity snag here and there… and if it’s a little sniffle I’m feeling coming on, I go straight to my juicer, and whip up a batch of this never failing “Cold Buster” juice.

ginger-shot-lemon

Ingredients for 1 serving:

1 pointing finger’s worth of ginger
1 small lemon
1/2 grapefruit, skin removed
1/2 apple if you simply can’t drink it “straight”.

Run through your juicer, close your eyes, and drink up!

Warning… it’s not for the “faint of tastebuds”, this juice definitely packs a punch BUT… it burns sooooo goooood ;) and it’ll burn those bugs right outa of ya!
